This is Kaprima From the Game Tera ,The file name says Baphomet when I pulled the file and you could not see or battle this creature at that time.
Oct 11 thru Nov 04 2014 you can battle this creature in the Revenge Of Kaprima. The site this file is one is www.techdollogic.com . In the OTHER section ,Its a awesome site full of large cosplay to paper craft.

This creature has 4 neck snakes wings with snakes atop and a snake tail The right arms is this weird tentasnake thing. It also has feathery wings a goat like face a sort of Egyptian theme spine work and jewelry.
The massive horns where more than a challenge to connect to the model and took 2 persons with steady hand 3 people might have made it easier.

The fallen angel scythe this BAM carry's will be up on my site also , but I dont see it finish able for Halloween since its 116 pages of stuff to build.

Please note this model is still WIP and final boss mode will come some time next year for now I have to get a few details and wear it for Halloween to scar all the adults!

A few Building Tips from me since i built it.
dont build the teeth they are complex and unneeded.
Build the face first start with the interior of the mouth build down then back up to the top, You are going to have to build the head cobra from its face down to its neck. dont start building the horns or the neck snakes since they have to be built as there own models. The ears are tough to get right ,note thet part of them build inside out seemingly.
Once you have the main head with 4-6 giant holes where the horns and snakes go your going to build the central horns, all the horns will build from point to head ** except the last 3 rows closest to the head leave those unbuilt for now <---- this is very very important , build the outer horns ,except the 3 head most rows again, You can now build the final horn parts into the head but dont try to connect the horns yet.
Next build the neck snakes from face to neck ,they are a pain there is not much a way around it being a pain. once you got all 4 you can connect them up to the neck ,once they are in place have a few people help you connect the horns as you are gonna need lots of hands.

A few funny things once you have the face built it will look fat until you start putting snakes and horns in place.
The eyes likely cant be built but rather push the parts in and glue um it will work out dont worry to much about this Slick can be added to make um black.
Plan more than 2 months to get this done you will likely need it. Also plan to reprint a few parts so it will take a whole ream of Cardstock
I used Gorilla brand super glue to put most of it together rather than hot glue ,I think i like this method better.

Yeah Ive had more than a few messages or emails killed by something like that. Thanks for the comment. This is probably the most advantageous piece Ive ever made ,simply intense. I suppose one could make a harder model to build but i dont want anything that was more difficult than this one ,thats for sure!

Nice to see ya around!

I wont actually be hanging around DA anymore,barely check-in. Its an awful site now,sneaky things like the motib.track.crap made me pissed I wanted to tell someone they deserve praise for like hard hard work. I think you were the last comment I'll leave for a long time,but I'll leave a post on my profile to remind ppl. 
If it consoles:this is just a great peice,I check in later,but lurk style. Keep it up and def bug me any other site you find me/use. I like seeing ppl make great stuff like this,how unfortunate DA nulls my attention to you.

Woooow I can't imagine the amount of work that went into making this - amazing

I think recounting the days of actual work it was something like 25 days @ 8 hours a peice so about 200 hours, Each section took its own day, the snakes heads are the worst they are so tera,ble there is no way to build them properly since the mouths are pretty tight to the outer skin. Its a high challenge build and I dont honestly see anyone else building this one.

That's amazing I admire your dedication to this project - it takes a special kind of person to persevere through that much labour.

I have to say the end product is worth it. Its so much more amazing in person I wish there was a way to show everyone, "A picture is truly worth 1000 but the real is worth so much more."

I wish I could explain that to people more - seeing things in person is soo different than just seeing a photo/reproduction.

lol Each picture is only 1000 words but a full experience shuts the mouth. Its really the difference between seeing a awesome movie at thee theater and watching the commercial and having your friend tell you how it ended.

That's an excellent way to put it - there's just so much you miss out on not seeing it for yourself!

It is indeed the Goat Lord of some sorts ,this model was so difficult when I post models I give them a rating 1-5 * this one should be a 6 but clearly its actually finishable!
Im currently trying to figure out what will go with this for my Halloween costume  then ill attempt more body stuff latter after Rathalos life size is done by the end of the year!
