Lemurian Coral Bio-Armor


This is the Lemurian Bio-Armor known as the Coral Bio-Armor used for the Rifts RPG published by Palladiumbooks. It is designed via Biomancy utilizing the aid of tiny organisms called polyps found in coral. Often a Biomancer Gene mage performs a ritual near a living coral reef creating spell that forms the bio-armor over the chosen wearer. The wearer becomes encased in a Mega Damage bio-armor construct. The Coral Bio-Armor is designed as an amphibious Combat Armor and is equivalent to that of heavy /environment power armor.
The Coral Armor is capable of running 30mph (48 km) maximum and can swim/rocket through water at a maximum speed of 30 mph (48 km/ 26 knots). This speed is tripled along a ley line. Maximum depth is 4 miles (6.4 km).

Height: 8.5-10.5 feet (0.8 to 0.9 m) at the shoulder.
Weight: (600 pounds (270kg).

Special features:
Coral Burst: At the users will, the Coral Bio-armor can fire a blast of dozens of tiny, razor sharp coral fragments from the hands and arms; point and short up to a maximum range of 1000 feet (305 m) underwater and double in an atmosphere.
Retractable Arm Blades: The arms of the Coral Bio Armor sport a pair of retractable swords. They are utilized against sea monsters and humanoid opponents alike.
Razor Coral: Coral reefs are known for their sharp edges that cut careless divers and undersea fishermen. The Coral Bio-Armor can temporarily ripple with razor-edged protrusions, making it extremely difficult to fight against the suit in close combat.
This illustration appears in the RIFTS: LEMURIA title.

HOLY CRAP this is intricate! Pretty much everything about it - the shading, the incredible amount of detail, the proportions - is amazing. I especially love the helmet design and the blades on the hands.

Even if an opponent survived the encounter, I imagine they'd have a nasty infection if they got pierced with those coral projectiles. Coral is known for leaving material behind in the cut, turning even a small injury more serious than it initially looks. That makes it even smarter as a weapon of choice.

I imagined coral as a natural armor... but never imagined it as some kind of mechsuit...

This is freakin' awesome. :D

Paint it one way and it's a hideous sea monster, paint it another way and it could become a new chapter of Nurgle Chaos marines...

Very descriptive with the details too. Very cool.

I'm assuming that you work for a game company? If you do, that's really cool I wish I could. You will be a legend some day. I can tell.
