Warhound looks horrible - replace its model

General Discussion
I agree. Warhound looks very ugly. It looks like robot toy for 5 years old kid. I would rather have old Goliath model.
extremely ugly and im not art fanatic

but don't replace it with diamond back... i using canceled/scrapped models
This early alpha Diamondback model would fit perfectly IMO:

Just slap a missile launcher where its second barrel would be. Voila!

Why not? The Diamondback is not scrapped or canceled, it's used in campaign.
I think it looks great, but it doesn't really fit with the terran aesthetic. It looks kind of flimsy and light, whereas everything else in the terran arsenal is thick, wide, and heavy. If they made it a bit more solid looking, I think it would be perfect. In its current form, I disagree that it looks ugly, but I do think it looks out of place.
I like the cobbled together look in general, and so I like the look of the Warhound. But I'm not sure it's consistent with the rest of the Terran design.
i would like the diamondback model if it didnt shoot a giant railgun laser.

Honestly I find it funny this is the only thing terran can find to complain about.


+1

I don't know why it hasn't been pointed out sooner.
yea its an alpha model i garuntee it will not pass into the finished game if it even makes it into beta.
Another thing that intrigues me is why there are 2 different versions of the Warhound:

The 2nd version's cockpit part looks uglier, but the first one looks alot more like an SCV. TBH neither are really great. Needs more bulkiness...And Terran have too many mech units, and none that Hover.
I do like a hover mech unit, replace the rail guns with anti mech/ machine guns and strap huge rocket arrays on BOTH shoulders

It is probably the ugliest model I have ever seen in an RTS.

seconding the diamondback.

and why can;t they just make the goliath model look newer and use that? WHAT IS SO WRONG WITH HAVING GOLIATH/DIAMONDBACK.

ALL THIS AND NO CARRIER/MSHIP ANYMORE, BUT TERRAN GETS THOR/SPEED BC!

as much as i live this game for the gameplay, it is becoming the biggest rip-off i have seen in a while. i KNOW there are other mech designs out there that look a WHOLE LOT LESS like mechwarrior.
I'm fine with what they are doing with the warhound in terms of gameplay, but I also had a bad reaction to the model. When I first saw it during the panel, I grimaced and said "ugh, seriously?!".

It's too boxy on top and has chicken legs. Doesn't look cool at all. I think they should have started from the goliath model and just beefed that up a bit. I mean they're not far from goliaths anyway right? And the lore would pretty much write itself that way, kind of like the dragoon/immortal.

To be fair, it does look pretty stupid.

Just make it a typical mech walker, don't make it some Eldar piece of gay !@#$.
Just give the goliath the same specs as the war hound and call it good.

What's the point then? Why not just bring the Goliath back? Just like how they could bring the Firebat back instead of having the Battle Hellion...

So true.

But although the model is kind of ugly, it's ugly in a cool way. It's definitely more functional because it's not so fat as to take up too much room like the Thor. It will make controlling units and killing mutas easier.

Oh, and the best thing about them? Since they are so top heavy, you can trip them easily for big damage!
lol Blizzard, you'd better change Warhound model. You guys always have greatest artstyle. All of your things always look great but Warhound surprise me because it looks ugly as hell. Almost everyone agree with this and you know how hard for SC2's community to completely agree on something.

I wanna ask Samwise if he really think Warhound looks good. -_-"
