ODST's (Orbital Drop Shock Troopers) or Helljumpers as Starfox says.

ODST's FTW!!!

qft

And the crème de la crème of the UNSC Marine Corps. are the ODSTs, as BladedExpert pointed out, are Orbital Drop Shock Troopers that fall out of space and hard-land into enemy territory. You get to fight next to some during the first mission when you land on Delta Halo in Halo 2.

These guys look absolutely bad ass and if that quality of detail is going to be present in the Halo movie (if it ever finds a home) then I am hoping for one helluva ride!

Meh... I see jaggies everywhere, low res textures, poor lightning, low polys, looks like Halo 2.5 to me, nothing next gen.

=)

Sorry, could not resist =)

No :-)

I'd actually drive around in it. Probably lose a girlfriend but gain way more Halo geek points!

Warthog looks a bit more clunky than in the game. Warthog shouldn't have an axel.
I really hope the Halo movie will find a studio.

i think its nice but its probably very slow and looks like its ready to break. its more of a prop then an actual driveable car.

I didnt know Bogger was the official tire-supplier for the Halo Wars. Cool!

But this mightily confuses Uwe Boll.. he thought any filmatization of videogame-related themes must NOT look anything like the games at all. He realizes he as been mistaken in his despotic ways of free "interpretation".

And it's far from a prop. The frame is insanely sturdy, it has 4 wheel drive, bedlock rims and 30" bogger super swamper tires. The engine you drive daily couldnt move that thing over an anthill.

I wish I knew what frame they built that on :/

You have to download their new Silver Light brower plugin first to view it.

For the next short I really hope they get a real set, and use a larger cast. The battle needs to be epic, not personal.
