SARDAUKARS aspect


Procyon

Recommended Posts

The aspect of the Sardaukar of the Image was given by the FH books or the DL movie?

I`m reading House Atreides and it say that they don`t wear that blue suit with that green visor of the helmet, but they wear a grey/black suit without helmet.

yeah you see, in the books, the sardaukar have many uniforms, but their usual uniform they wear are just fatigues that are grey in color with black or gold piping. Their helmets may be different colors depending on their rank. Itwould be too tedious to explain all their uniforms.lol I suggest highly though a very good synopsis on the sardaukar. It talks about their history, their uniforms, their ranking structure, and a bunch of other stuff. It is in the Dune articles second on the fed2k main page. It is very helpful.

The reason why in the Game, the sardaukar look like they do is because they wanted to make a uniform taht looked similar to the one in the 1984 version of Dune. Westwood only bought the rights to Dino Delorientis'(spelling?) version of Dune.

hehe, man jedorowsky hated the fact that lynch directed a new Dune and thought it was absolutely horrible. And I must say that david lynch could have done better, but I still love David Lynch's Dune the best.

And Mobius' concept art. I am a huge fan of his graphic novel artistry. Really creative. I personally like Jedorosky's way of direction too. I highly suggest El Topo if you want to be blown away by surreal artistry. At least thats what I think in my opinion. hehe :)

TMA: I checked out my Chris Foss page again, and it's not quite as bad as I remembered it. Some of these are good:

(The one idea I liked about Jodorowski's DUne was the idea of the Emperor living on a synthetic planet. It really give the Emperor a god-like character)

But these ones I don't like:

http://www.oliver-faulhaber.de/sf/dune/sonstiges/jodo017.gif (this is the one I was talking about. It looks like something the Riddler would drive. :))

These images were taken from here: http://www.oliver-faulhaber.de/sf/dune/sonstiges/dunefoss.htm

Check out the spice pirate ship. When will that ship be in front of the right background for such a "camoflage" to work?

dude vanguard, you hit the nail on the head with the synthetic world, also it is a world composed of the opposites of nature, i.e. him having total domination over nature.

No I agree, but mobius didnt design the ships. He did design the "riddler machine" though. hehe I like the costumes. I espesially like the sardaukar outfits. Also some of the symbols for guilds or houses are actually on the money in some ways that you might not really see. Like the guild insignia forming triangles from the zigzags.

Sorry, I thought everything on that page was Foss. By the way, when I said "my Chris Foss page", I meant the one I have bookmarked, not one I made. I don't know enough German for that. ;)

Anyway, Could you send me a page with Moebius' stuff please? I'd like to take a look at them again (I recently formatted my HD, and I don't want to look through stacks of CD's for my Favourites). IIRC, the Spice pirate emblem (i.e. a simplified Blackjack/Jolly Rojer) was well made. It was simple, and classical, yet modernized. Or maybe I'm just looking too much into things. ;)

hehe ;)

Yeah here is the site. Orlok actually took this site from one of my friends. He was way too busy with school and stuff so he just gave it to him. go to http://www.orlok.co.uk/ and then look at the upper right corner. You will see Jedorowsky's Dune. click on that and then you will see a section where you click on Mobius' work. :)
