GDI Disc Thrower WIP by KajiTetsushi GDI Disc Thrower WIP by KajiTetsushi
Mm-hmm... I got bored at work, so, upload. This was drawn a year ago, but I'll revive it again when I finish with everything else.

It was supposed to be a canted angle, showing the Disc Thrower throwing discs like ninjas do with shurikens.

Cool, the disc thrower is my favorite infantry unit in Tiberian Sun.

:) As far as infantry went I think they were some of the most effective because they were good against infantry, vehicles and buildings.

That's right.

They had the best firepower-to-cost ratio for any infantry, on top of being able to bounce discs further than advertised. And yes, aircraft hunting was never an infantry's league in TS, so it's not really worthy of being the subject of a discussion.

Great little trick with them is that if you have them attack the ground to pick off lasers. It worked fairly well once the disks bounced in the right direction

Yeah, I know that trick. It's just tedious; you need many Disc Throwers to do some real pain else the Lasers will repair the damages away. Only works best in low-tech death matches and single player missions.

I've succeeded with three to four I just made sure they all would go at correct angle so the discs ended up as close to a direct hit a possible. I wish I started doing this trick sooner because I lost ten disc throwers once on the second mission in single player because of that stupid trick where a nod unit wipes out your infantry all at once. That gets annoying really fast.

Long story short, the added range is just a minor bonus.

Well... excellent details to the pack and armor for one of the coolest units of the game. Pretty awesome man.

You know, it sucks that C&C3 and 4 don't have this GDI unit.

Second'd! :#1:

Oh, well, shiznits... That goes double for the rest of TS science -- mechs, hovercrafts, walls, drones, subterraneans, human mutants, nonhuman mutants, cluster missiles, chemical missiles -- you name it, they dumped it! Well, right before they spit it out again for "old time's sake"...

But then, at least C&C3 (no, not Kane's Wrath, good God, Epic Units are so ugly...) wasn't as reinvented as C&C4 and RA3. And quite frankly, I don't care much for anything past RA2 -- the C&C merchandise is probably dead, anyway.

I'd concur, me playing all the games (my dad is almost the biggest fan of Command and Conquer games in my family) buys most of them and I end up getting them. C&C 3 was their best title in my opinion, but Tiberium Sun is still awesome BECAUSE GDI still had control of the skies, ORCA's for the win bro!!

I do get chances, but usually, they're too short for me to produce anything significant. This was done at home, anyway.

It's okay. I'm not all hands for anime, too. But you can still appreciate Tiberian Sun's Disc Thrower as a whole, though: it's quite the classic infantry unit of the second Command and Conquer episode... which wasn't even animesque in the first place. =)

just a little suggestion: You should do a zone raider and a zone trooper together in combat. :D

I could, but there's other pictures I want to finish.

Anyway, plans are this Disc Thrower will be thrown in the same scene with a female GDI Light Infantry.
