When i first saw the image i thought it was a project for dungeons and dragons or something. They are using the same model for a basilisk:

 Thanks! I hadn't seen the dnd basilisks. The warhammer forgeworld basilisk model and giant salamanders are what inspired this guy. Cheers!

I don't know of any mythology in which basilisks are multi-legged.  Is this a thing going around?

 only in my head! I more or less just took the name and ran with it after seeing Forgeworlds basilisk model for warhammer.

I like the salamander-like to it, it makes alot of sense. Because basilisk are water-based and such.

Were you inspired by lost planet?
AlexKonstad's avatar
Nope, sadly I will admit i haven't played through that game.

haha yup, that was where I was trying to go, with just a bit of a twist of the fantastical. I figure once his mouth is open its all business.
