I plan to rework the Silencer to make him more of a red inquisitor/priest/bishop. I see it so much in him already and I think it would be a great angle on the hero. I would like to stick with mostly cloth as is his style in Dota 2 but bringing back some of the plate from his spell breaker days to tie in the shield would be great.
For the most part he is completely symmetrical so breaking that up would be a fun challenge. Another big draw for me is that aside from his legs, chest, and face (all of which are nearly hidden from view) he is open to a complete remake with his items. Furthermore he has so few items on the Workshop that there is plenty of room for creativity.
Update: Finally done. Here is the image I'm about to submit and a link to the steam workship. I played a game with my set on Dota Test last night. It really looks and plays great. So incredibly rewarding.
Update: Changed the coloring to the new purple. Started work on the new helm that I'll add to the set. Dropped the crown idea after giving it a try and seeing that it just didn't work. I'm working on a version of the helm that has a cowl over it instead. Here is the new/temporary art I have up. I'll get images with the real purple textures once the new helm is done. The screens are all from Dota 2 Test with the new purple textures. Sorry I would have waited until the contest was over but I have been getting too many posts asking about the change. Man I wish they had changed DK instead of silencer!
