Balrog Class Bio-Monstrosity by Blazbaros Balrog Class Bio-Monstrosity by Blazbaros
With the imminent war against the Vornai and their “gods” approaching in the horizon, the Xasheen and the fledgling Gulchabrahva joined forces in a desperate attempt to prepare for the worst, combining genetic engineering and cyber augmentation into a manner of bio-weapon powerful enough to bring the fight back to the Vornai. The result of this union has been dubbed as the “Balrog” series, unyielding juggernauts of tailored muscle, bone and sinew that navigate through land, air and sea with ease and are fitted with the deadliest and most advanced Xasheen military tech to date.

The basic model pictured here, easily the size of a large elephant, is equipped with a triple-barrelled tail gun and a set of twin-torso turrets. Everything from its musculature to its skeleton is reinforced with metallic and mineral components, vital organs are purposefully simplistic to reduce the chance of life-threatening injuries, and the armour itself has several sensors connected to the Balrog’s brain, allowing them to notice incoming threats from every direction and react accordingly.

This was the combined effort of ~Gorger and myself for the #LegacyVerse

Balrog? That reminds me of something...

holy WOW, amazing collaboration you have here you two, must have taken you a while to fine tune the idea.

also you say large elephant but is it an African elephant or Asian elephant cause the standard African elephant is 50% larger than a Asian.

also ive been out of touch with the whole world for quiet some tome so I'm kinda behind the times as far as legacy verse is concerned so what exactly is going on recently after the large wall paper you made for legacy verse?

You're creature bares a strong resemblance to the last boss of Sonic Adventure 2: Battle. (It looks like a mature version). Google 'Biolizard' to find pictures.

I can safely say now that if I had drawn it myself it wouldn't have come out nearly as awesome as this came out. It's a thousand times better than the idea i had for the original sketch, even!

Never stop being this amazing at this man :D
