CLASS: Insectoid

Fusion of a human with a walkingstick. Though herbivorous, this towering mutant is prone to sudden outbursts of violence, especially if disturbed while eating; and the Horrida will never stop eating so long as vegetation is in reach. When sufficiently agitated, it sprays a gout of hot, sulphuric-smelling acid from its anus and performs a whirling somersault to impale a blinded enemy on its nail-like spurs. Despite its thin and spindly appearance, its appendages are incredibly strong and nearly impossible to break.

Hey, no pressure. Do what you do best, to the best of your ability. If you make us wait, then inevitably there's a good reason for it. :D

truly awesome, you know walking sticks have really sharp hooks on their feet, but I guess this is the degenerate mutant version :)

I even them all out between the insect and human portions, though some lean more or less towards one or the other :)

I'd love to see how this thing walks with it's limbs in that order.

A most intriguing design, ol' chap.
