I've found at least a handful of your creatures Legion, just not any epics. Mine are not in any shots either.

Cool!

I cannot wait to see my Cimchomp!!

..I've not seen the Cimchomp though, and well... most of the others met an untimely demise when the temperature on the planet in question suddenly jack-knifed - something I had almost nothing to do with *cough*

BAH HA HA HA HA HAHAHAHA!!!! *breaths* HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

LOL!!! I'd love to see that as a comic...

Hehe well I wouldn't celebrate too fast... I've seen a lot of your creatures around as well, so some of them might well have been on there too :P I think I often use one of yours to seed with actually. Can't remember which though.

Hmmm, I really should take down more of the Epics' names when I find them. I've only got a couple of screenshots.



This was my first Epic. Anyone care to step forward and claim it? It was surprisingly vicious.



This is my own creation, the Mini Demonspawn. Only suddenly without the 'mini' part. He slaughtered so many innocent Lemmings!  :'(
If you peruse my things, you get POINTS!

Only trouble is, they're Whose Line Is It Anyway points, which are infamously not worth anything.

Necrox,

Could you post some screen shots of my creatures?  I have not seen any of mine in my game.

I finally looked at this thread since I have the game. I love the hot dog picture, how funny that must have been. I had this one:

It's a Lobsterman from the game X-COM: Terror From The Deep. They're absolutely awesome ^^ Extremely strong and almost impossible to kill... they just don't aim so well with guns :P
I've been wanting to make one for the longest time, but I'm afraid I wont do it justice. Maybe it's time I tried as well though.
Let me know if you do make it, I definately want to check it out :)

Could you post or send me a picture of what the back looks like?  I don't like to take to much artistic liscense on things people really like.

I finally saw an Epic that was not one of my own creatures.  It was... Larrot, made by WeAreLegion.  It was sort of a giant parakeet.  I took some screen shots, but it was very late last night, so I didn't look at them yet.  I'll post this weekend if they aren't horrible.

Also, slightly off-topic: I ran into this guy within SECONDS of starting my first try at the Civ phase.  It was cool, but sort of irritating to have an epic creature inside my city walls, when I (a) didn't really know what I was doing yet, and (b) had no money.  He destroyed everything I built.  I finally had to just ignore him (inside my city!!) while I went about the business of setting up some trade routes.  He wasn't eating people, and didn't seem to be bothering my city hall, so it was okay to just let him roost in one of my vacant lots.

Then, later when I had money coming in a faster rate, I was able to build two turrets at a time, so one could shoot him while he destroyed the other.  Wait awhile for money to replenish, and repeat.  I burned through at least 10 to 12 turrets before I finally laid that sucker to rest.

There isn't really any I'm affraid. There's only 2 "detailed" pictures of the lobstermen in the game: That one and the autopsy of it which doesn't show the back (and the proportions don't seem right either). Other than that there's only the tiny tiny sprites.
My impression of it however, is that it's supposed to be a single oval shell, possibly with a much smaller section at the top and bottom similar to real lobsters (only a bit rounder).

They don't appear to have a tail, so the shell is probably a mix between crab and lobster, and coloured like a slightly darker version of the dark bits of the main claws.



DaMuncha: It's a shame you didn't play the full game then. It was ace. I still play it from time to time ^^
