I did say this in personal conversations but not here yet so I'll do that too.
the skaarj warlord, the closest resemblance to that look is this:

maybe parts of torgr's and the korig's parts could be used to make the skin if someone modified warlord mesh enough or makes one from scratch. Just saying.

makemeunreal made a very informative post about the early Warlord model compared to the release version.
Check it out:

I did make (before mmu started to experiment himself with it) an edited version of the warlord mesh just to remove the wings etc and a temporary new skin if you want to check it out.

also finally uploaded the backed up version of the krallhomeworld text file I wrote a while back, this is not official but its how I'd imagine it looking like based on everything and I find it still a very nice idea to have Unreal 3 take place there.

Interesting, I mean the Krall Home World text.
I still wonder how the home world of the Skaarj would look like.
I guess it'd be very much H.R. Giger inspired like Scorn, at least how I'd imagine it.
Wasn't the cancelled mission pack going to take place on the Skaarj home world?

Also, I'm not too familiar with models/meshes and such, what program did you use for the Warlord mesh?
How would one open the .3d file? ;D

U3Dbinread.

Either way in my own headcanon, Skaarj Homeworld would be visited in Unreal 4, altogether with a whole new realm (related to the whole dranoel/other stuff).

Skaarj Home Planet was going to be explored in Unreal II, not a mission pack. The original Unreal II, before the ending of Unreal got changed. As you'd end up flying with the mothership, but it would lock on back to "home", kind of like that episode of Stargate SG1 when that prototype shuttle using hybrid tech had some "send back home" stuff activated.
