TF2 Medieval - Scout by Folji TF2 Medieval - Scout by Folji
See more Medieval TF2!

"I'm as good as royalty!"
- The Medieval Scout


Wound up taking a bit longer with this one than with the past few, due to... technical difficulties along the way. :paranoid:

Coming up with a redesign for the Scout was pretty interesting. On one hand it was pretty straight forward; he's a scout, just draw him so that he looks like one and call it a day, right? At the same time, though, I wanted to play off of his arrogant and superior attitude, and decided that a good middle-ground would be for him to look like a royal messenger kind of guy.



The hat is an old-fashioned beret. A bit more renaissance-inspired than anything else, but it still fits the theme, and the Scout's somewhat upper-class apparel.

The primary weapon is a slingshot. That's right, a slingshot. Not entirely sure if they had slingshots like that in those days, but come on, it's perfect for the Scout.

I was thinking of just using the already existing Boston Basher for a melee weapon, but decided that I'd rather just come up with something of my own. So, instead, I gave him a flail packed with pointlessly long spikes. Probably gonna hit yourself with ease, swinging such a thing.

hahaha, yeah, but it'd seem a lil redundant when it's already been done so well, haaha

I don't know, other people have probably done it even better and it didn't stop me.

Oh man, you've captured arrogance perfectly here! Good one. I never knew how to make an arrogant face :/
You definitely are right. A slingshot would be perfect for him! Charges like the huntsman, but he flings lots of sharp pebbles. And i say, the Baston Basher should have been a flail. It would make complete sense, but I guess you cant let go of the bat. Amywayz, they would do pretty much the same thing. Maybe more dmg at the cost of slower swing rate . I'd just wanna smack the scummy look on Scout's face! Nice =D
