"T-That’s a &^%king Skrall?!"

Name: Mk IV Skrall Battle Armor

Armaments:

Left Arm:

x4 Heavy Graviton Bolt Launchers:  Because there is no kill like overkill…

Right Arm:

Automatic Grenade Launcher: (Located at the center of the three claws) Weapon capable of launching a variety of heavy ordinances from plasma grenades, assimilator grenades ect… The Right arms claw can easily be used as a melee weapon as well when called for.

Description: No matter how you slice it, the Skrall are still a warrior race who have absolutely no fear getting their own metaphorical hands dirty, there are simply some among their kind that simply dislike the idea of sitting within their safe dreadnaughts and battle ships and just trusting the slaves and soldiers to get the job done. However their physically weak slug like form is something of a contradiction to the above statement, so their answer is this: Battle Armor.

Upon entering, a Skrall cybernetically links with its armor, allowing it to function as an extension of its self, giving more maneuverability then one would usually expect from such a bulky looking design (That thing can practically tap dance!). Mostly due to their usual rank, Skrall battle armor is built tough. Designed with heavy plasma and gravitic shielding as well as the best type of armored hulls the bio-factories can churn out, makes taking one down without going so far as to bomb it be one hell of a task.



Before anyone says anything about maneuverability, note that all Combine tech is at least partially organic, so all those supposedly obstructive spikes of villainy can easily move to make room.

As for the legs....well I guess those might be a weakness... I'm might go with a different design later. Arms too. The Skrall is also kinda in a "sitting position"

All in all, I'm not responding to criticism well today... not that I won't take, but I'm dreading it due to the frustration that went to making this, the type that involved it getting accidentally deleted....twice...

As for the emphasis about how tough these things are, their definitely not invisible (maybe "bomb it" is a little too much). It's mostly that when they step inside that behemoth they automatically become the determinator/implacable man. So yeah....their tough, but not invisible tough, it's just that you will definitely say "oh ****" when one shows up. and they will likely be named/have plot armor or be a boss fight if encountered in certain scenarios

a lot less blobby then I would have figured, but then again, its armor.

*gets sucked in forever*



Seriously, though, loved the use of TVT to emphasize the inherent themes.  :)

In any case, awesome armor, Necro! Not to mention sweet sculpting skills.  :)

Is that picture of Scourge or Ragaran, by any chance?

looking at the face more closely, it looks like something that you would run at from behind, then it would knock you down easily with its claw and turn and make an unholy scream right in your face.
