Since when do minions have to look like their master?

Sauron compared to Orcs
The Lich King compared to the Undead
Pit Lords compared to Succubi
Mehrunes Dagon compared to Daedra

I think I rest my case.

None of those matter as far as ingame coherence. (I have no idea what the last one is, so I can't talk about that) I'm not going through them all to explain how they differ in this situation, but all of them are different enough that it doesn't matter (also, since when are succubi the specific minions of Pit Lords?)

However, they all largely fit well together, because of these differences. I feel that Legion and his legions fall into that catagory of not being very different, but not being really alike. There's just a dead-zone there, and they fall right on the border of it, in my opinion. Granted, they do look alright (individually, each would be a killer skin), and I wouldn't be upset if Dusk decided to stick with them as-is, but I just feel that they could be easily be made to work together to create a more coherent feel.

I understand that the Legionnaires don't need to look unique and heroic, but Legion himself does. Like ^he said, Masters don't need to fit into a theme that their minions also follow.

I know what Erwt's saying and I agree with it. Just look at the Firelord and the Lava Spawns. In that same vein, though, consider the Archmage and the Water Elemental. They're a cool match too, but they really have no relevance to one another. I mean, they're linked through the color scheme on Blizzard, Brilliance, and Mass Teleport, but Legion is linked to his summons through spell interaction as well. I think ultimately, in-game, it wouldn't detract any from the aesthetics. It's only when you view them entirely apart (Like in the first post), where they appear to clash.

I'll still see what AR thinks about it when he comes back from his trip.

The new Legion reminds me of something from Turok 2.

Anyway, I really like the minions look. Much better than the current version.
