I'm calling this one done for now. I have a small sequence that I'm planing to render out but it will wait for a while until I find time to render it all out (a lot of fumefx stuff that's pretty heavy on the cpu).
Thanks for viewing and all the comments!
You did a beautiful job on this! Really great!

Extremely impressive !!!
I guess everyone agrees so far, the word to use is "stupendous" for this work !
Certainly nice work and a very homogenous effect achieved.
I have been wondering however, and as a woman, I just do not understand
why a futuristic warrior would be using swords as weapons.
I mean, by then we will have atomizing ray guns or even sound ray guns
or whatever and a guy with a sword will be a fish out of water.
Thanks guys Really appreciate these comments. Wasn't expecting them so thank you!
As for the katana question. I wouldn't say this is that far in to the future. It's a lot closer to our time line then one would think. I actually wrote a small story behind this character. I think it's in the first post but I'll post it again below. I also never said that he does not use other weapons. His weapon of choice in close combat is a Katana. Hope this clarifies things a bit.
STAR - Special Tactics and Rescue unit was formed as a response to ever growing need to end the conflict before it expands to a bigger region.
This unit has 13 members each trained in a different style of martial arts. They hold an intensive and rigorous selection process. Each new member has to undergo full body screening to evaluate both mental and physical strength. Those that make through undergo a final medical examination and are put through intensive training in both martial arts and military tactics. Each member is trained in fighting style that is best suited for them and is given a wide choice of weapons to pick from. Aside from the standard fire arms they all get to pick a melee weapon. They can choose from bladed to blunt weapons that include swords, staff and daggers. STAR Units are fitted with a custom armor that is built to enhance their predisposed abilities.
Daiichi (***31532;***19968; - first, number one) is the leader in this unit. He excels in the art of sword and his hand to hand combat skills are hard to match. Combination of power and speed that is enhanced by his suit gives him a perfect balance and makes him a tough opponent to beat.
