It looks brilliant.

Ohh… Very nice… I like the use of the black Hau Nuva.

I love how cohesive it is, but personally, I miss the white in the color scheme, have you thought about just replacing the black hau nuva with a white mask? I feel like it only needs a tiny splash of white to tie in the weapons.

Again, very well done and very clean!

He almost looks like a Hollow Knight boss now. It’s gorgeous.

O hey you finally posted him. I still absolutely love that black Hau Nuva in the chest! The cheese slopes on the shoulders seem far too boxy to me though - some kind of trailing spike or something might’ve been better

You’re really playing up the Mantis form, I like it a lot!

I love and hate how fleshy that body is.

I was wondering earlier this week about old BioTube era guys that were still active… guess there’s another one!

While I’m here: Man, this kind of color blocking is sick. Props to you for keeping all the white-and-red pieces as the only ones of those colors.

I can agree.Because of the contest I had to cover the open studs on those dish pieces, the cheese slopes remained to be my only option. Thanks![quote=“Hawkflight, post:9, topic:51639”]

Thanks a lot! It was hard to work with the normal white, it always sticked out too much, so I removed it.

Glad you can see that!

Thanks for the criticism. As I said earlier, I think it didn’t really look that great. But maybe a white Hau Nuva could’ve worked, if I had one.

What do you mean by ‘hate’?

Thanks all!

Mostly a joke, cause it has a slight unnerving feel to it.

Top quality design and build. Very imaginative from soup to nuts.

Did they have a “no exposed studs” rule?

Yes. I didn’t have flat circular tiles in black, that’s why I used cheese slopes.

I love the proportions and the Mantis-like design!
