TF2 Medieval - Heavy by Folji TF2 Medieval - Heavy by Folji

"I am judge, I am jury, and I am executioner too!"
- The Medieval Heavy


When I first got to work with the idea for this one, all I really had was the handheld ballista. Then, the more I thought about it, the more it made sense that in a medieval setting, the Heavy would likely be an executioner. It just makes sense, for both looks and personality. But then it really didn't make sense for him to go around with a vest and am ammunition belt, so I looked up some pictures of executioners and tried to work out something a bit more suitable while remaining within the clean stylization of Team Fortress 2. The final result is actually pretty nice.



The executioner's mask doesn't require much of an explanation.

The fist weapon is a pair of burlap boxing gloves with spikes on the end, which will probably have a chance to cause bleeding or something along those lines.

The main weapon is a handheld ballista; slower rate of fire than a regular minigun, but way more accurate. The barrel on the side is for storing additional bolts.

I know enough to have tried, hehe. Making hats is actually really nice as a first time thing, as the game's stylistic approach calls for some pretty simply and straight-forward models with a good design rather than tons of detail. =P

Funny you should mention something like that, because I was at one point playing with this one-page "judge, jury and executioner" comic with the Heavy in these medieval duds. :giggle:

Awesome! It would be nice to have for use in cp_degroot keep. I hate having to use just a sammich and fists. I thought the Brass Beast was allowed, but nope.

Degroot as a whole is just demoman's land if you ask me. :lol: I like the idea of medieval mode, but it could still do with more meat on its bones to keep it from just being melee mode (with bows if you're a sniper or medic).

Wow, that is one gamebreaking weapon he has there, pretty awesome, as well as Executioner Heavy. They would probably fire slower, yes. But the damage would have to be thought about. How's about a firing rate of the Grenade Launcher, coupled with the damage of a Huntsman bow at 1/3 of its charge? That oughtta do it =D
Heavy sure does look scarier with that mask and gloves. Speaking of gloves... Those could work like the Boston Basher. Bleeds foe or bleed yourself if ya missed ;)

To be honest, I've never liked the mechanics of the Boston Basher. Bleed damage is nice, but having it applied to yourself if you miss a swing is just a pain in the ass when you swing it twice every second.

It'd be a lot easier and funnier to use if instead of a self-hit it just had a reduced flat damage for the sake of the bleed effect. Damaging yourself is just a bad effect.

Whenever I encounter a Scout with the boston basher, they either try to play a game of precision swinging every time they attack or they wind up batting themselves to death. :lol:
