So here is the First pass on the “Pup” sculpt.
This guy is a younger version of the Elder. We envisioned these guys as the young, fool hardy teenager who joins up with the expedition. He may grow into a very competent soldier, but at the moment he’s a bit skinny and gangly. His armour plates haven’t grown through properly.

Still not happy with his face, and I was experimenting with diffferent styles for the armour – need to settle on one.
I was looking at reference of the young version of Hercules from the Disney movie, as well as Jim Hawkins from Treasure Planet…
