Blades of blazes by venom00 Blades of blazes by venom00
The previous model of the Templarion wasn't good enough, sometimes people even mistakes that model for thieves/ninjas, so I made a few changes to make them more warrior-like. Changes included:
1/ The scarf is one-tailed instead of two-tailed like before (not sure if that can be called a scarf but the hell with it...)
2/ The face cover is removed, since the story already has too many characters who cover their faces all the time.
3/ Normal shirt was changed into Ceratanium Armor, providing more combat support.
4/ A few changes in the design of the feet (I swear they look much better than last time).
4/ Accidentally but turned out to be quite satisfying: bigger biceps.
5/ Helmet design slightly changed, and believe me when I say I didn't know I changed it.


Bonus: here is something I've never done before, I'll give you guys a short story concerning the Templarions.

-----------------------------------


The story is from the point of view of a Hunter name Rick, telling the events that took place before he fell a victim to the Templarion himself...



As the man in white, Gate, gave the signal, several more portals opened up in front of him. For a second, Rick thought Gate would call for the Galleons, but he was way off reality.

Strange, or wierd (in his opinion), figures walked out of the portals, and by 'wierd' he meant 'VERY strange, literally'. Gate's minions looked completely different from any kind of Repliroid Rick had encountered before. They had faces that resembled human's skulls but no mouths, two blazing golden eyes, big muscles, digitigrade legs - which made their height quite remarkable, and the part that confused Rick was that they carried no weapons with them. Yes, none of them were carrying any kind of weapons!

"These are the Templarions, my foot soldiers", Gate began to speak. "Before you engage my Espadas, I'll let you enjoy your fight with them, so you WILL, have at least the slightest idea of how powerful the Nuevoroids really are".

Finishing the line with a vicious smile, he walked back into the portal behind him. As the portal closed, the Templarions immediately took their stances and prepared for combat.

Rick thought they were gonna do some kungfu stuffs like they always said on TV, but to much of his and other Hunters' surprise, energy blades bursted out from the back of their wrists.

"These guys are close-ranged combatant!", he shouted to his comrades, and every single Hunters on the battlefield who heard that took out their blasters and began to fire, just to see how terrifying their enemies were.

The Templarions ran with a ridiculously fast pace. The Hunters could only fire at most ten shots before getting closed up and being slashed with their deadly energy blades. And by the time he saw that, five Hunters had already been cut down. The Rockmen, a little far away from his left, were also having a difficult time with these new enemies.

After making successful headshot, Rick tried to shout and tell others to use some tactics, but he was never fast enough. The Templarions just kept taking down their preys before he even had the chance to open his mouth. As a result, aside from himself and the Rockmen, no Hunters were able to take down any Templarion at all.

Despair washed over him. He looked around the battlefield. He looked at the Templarions. He would have mistaken them for warriors if they were fighting alongside each other, he thought. But now, he could only see Grim Reapers that were rushing across the battlefield, taking out his friends at an unbelievable rate.

As the last Hunter was cut down, a Templarion approached Rick with the same speed that was used against his fellow Hunters. He looked into its eyes, fear and despair took over him. He could not raise his blaster, nor he could run away. He finally realized: the only reason why he had lived until this moment was because his enemies were saving him, the leader, for last. And a second after he realized that fact, he could not feel the area that used to be his abdoment anymore. His vision blurred, and then, everything was absorbed into a pitch-black darkness.

So, this happened somewhere at the opening scene? I want to know how Fawnix gained the Alma Segador after that (hey, you haven't completed it:D)

Interesting, wanna see their weakness

I think I know your meaning though it's quite obscure

It's common sense, unless you want to kill the leader first.

"too much", not "to much":))

Wanna ask you something:
The Rockmen, who appear there?

Who would become the first that can destroy the Templarion, and how?

Can you explain the final paragraph "the only reason why he had lived until this moment was because his enemies were saving him, the leader, for last". What had happened before it?

Aside from Ashe (disappeared after being hit by Ulquiorra's Cero), Holy Rockmen (tending for Clair's injuries in the temporary base camp), Fawnix (absent) and the 4 Anti-Rockmen (dead), the rest is on-field.

Saying how here would be too soon, but I'll say it was Dante who discovered the Templarion weakness.

If you're asking about what that paragraph means, then I'd say "Before you kill the leader, kill the soldiers first". Before Rick died, the Tempalrion just kept hunting down other Hunters as they prefered it that way.

uh, the 4 Anti-Rockmen died here? I thought they died when Vent transformed into Shitennou ZX the first time in the Heaven Base...

Because the died in Heaven Base, they were not present in the Templarion's invasion.

Fast AND powerful! These things are MUCh better than Pantheons, or even Galleons for that matter!

Like specter said, a bit top heavy. But in a combat design, that actually has it's advantages. They'd be harder to stop moving once they started. their only weakness might be getting tripped, those legs look like they might have a bit of a problem getting him up again. Really good design!

En Taro Tassadar! *lol*

I used to prefer Zerg over Protoss but now I'm playing Protoss so I can rush earlier (still thinking how to defense myself when playing with Zerg)

Rush earlier with protoss...? what-? Oh, yeah, defensive playing is right out the window with Zerg. Their only defense is a good offense.

Usually I would build Spine Crawlers and Roaches to defense myself, but that would take too much minerals and I wouldn't have time to repel masses of Carriers, so playing with Zerg now is a little difficult ^^!
