    Well, why not?

    Heavy is hero of Soviet Union!

    I've got it narrowed down to 5 items so far.

    Primary Weapon

    Crazy Ivanka

    Heavy's minigun get's replaced with a semi-man-portable quad-barreled anti-aircraft gun. It's conceptiually based on weapons like the Pom-Pom and the Shilka. Trying to decide on individual features like a shield and number of ammo boxes etc. If I ever get my animation abilities up in time, I'd like to be able to have the barrels recoil instead of rotating like the minigun.

    Melee Weapon

    1. Brick Knuckles

    Heavy carries pieces of of the Kremlin and Berlin Walls with him whereever he goes. Partially as mementos, and partially as a means to bash his opponents head in. The Heavy ties these pieces of masonry to his hands (well, he get's the Medic to do it, darn complicated knots) and goes swinging into battle.

    2. H.E. Double Hockey Sticks

    Heavy is normally credit to Soviet Olympic Hockey Team, but even the best lose on occassion. And when that happens, Heavy starts breaking things in half, and then he uses those things to break other things in half, and those other things are usually members of the blue team.


    Hat
    1. Bald Man's Budionovka

    This soviet cavalry hat is onion-domed just like St. Basil itself!

    2. Private's Pilotka

    Pilotka-wearing Heavies get bossed around by Ushanka-wearing Heavies :(

    Ok there's my ideas thus far. Are any of them keepers? :p

    The hats are boring but the bricks and AA gun are good. The hockey sticks would be okay but you'd have to give them new animations as well.

    you should make the hockey sticks similar to the demomans bottle. if the heavy gets a random crit with them they break into half and do slightly more damage. would be fun.

    Who needs bricks on their knuckles when their fists are made of steel?

    Something very close to that minigun design you've got there is already over on Polypack...

    I don't really get the hockey sticks. I just don't see an obvious tie-in between the Heavy and hockey. :bored:

    Not sure what to say about the brick-fists ... seriously, I just can't decide what I think of them. :mellow: They could work, but at the same time they might not ... eh...
