Covenant Shade Turret

Probably one of the best of my original Halo 1 creations, the Shade Turret was posted 11/14/2003.

One thing I aimed for on this model was giving it full maneuverability. It can turn in every direction and point both up and down, without having to remove and reattach anything.

Unfortunately, though it's always tempting to hop in one, the Shade is one of the most useless things in the original Halo. The blasts are relatively weak and extremely slow. No good against vehicles or infantry really.

Sure, this guy managed to take down ONE grunt... but the other one is getting ready to lob him with a sticky grenade, and then he's history! Always happens when using the Shade...

The Shade. Mine might be too big, but I still think it looks pretty cool.
