Lemurian Coral Bio-Armor by ChuckWalton Lemurian Coral Bio-Armor by ChuckWalton
DOUBLE CLICK FOR BEST RESULTS!!!!

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.
Bio-Regeneration
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.
Rifts® Lemuria is packed with new magic, weapons, living power armor, monstrous war steeds, weapons, and gear suitable for landlubbers and aquatic adventurers alike.
The Lemurians are an amphibious people with floating cities and magic-based technology that allows for land and underwater adventures alike. Discover the secrets and people of this lost and forgotten civilization of magic and wonder. Add amphibious capabilities to your Rifts® campaigns and discover new menaces under the sea. Amphibious in nature, Lemurians wage war against the demonic on dry land and under the waves. Their exotic riding animals, weapons, armor and magic are suitable for use on land and underwater.

Holy shit this is awesome. Coral Armor? That's never occurred to me. He's like a biological Terran Marine.

One thing, however, is that he'd be much heavier than 600 pounds. The armor alone would weigh more. Don't forget that coral is biological stone created through secretions of tiny organisms. Even if it were made of flesh, 600 pounds is very light considering the height of this individual assuming for standard flesh density.

Thank You very much and I appreciate the compliment. I like your comparison to the bio Tera marine!

As to the weight, I only illustrated this concept, I didn't write it or stat it up. However it might be possible that the coral armor might be a that weight because it is magically altered and perhaps this has some affect on its mass or make it less dense,who knows? But I do see and agree with your assessment XD

Not to sound like a broken record, but thanks again for sharing, your talent is inspiring, bro. Hope all is going well with your progress.
I'm a little behind on things, and I was wondering if there are any art contests up at palladium right now... ?
I am pretty motivated to do some rifts art, but could use a little guidance on what you all "need" at the moment.

probably my favorite of the lemurian stuff. Amazing level of detail and it just looks pointless to even try to pierce that armor.

Thanks Irv! Lemuria seems like a blur to me now, as I was reading descriptions for some items and totally making up others. This description was one of those that forced me to slow down and think how can I pull off a Coral armor without it looking like a clump of crap, lol.

Somehow thinking of an aquatic army with biomancy as my focus, it began to solidify quite easily. The detail came from the aspects of various coral types for references and the rest gelled naturally.

this would look totally at home in a Splicers Army! i was wonderin if they would ever have a crossover into rifts like this. O.K. so it's not actually "Splicers Gen Tech", but hell look at it! might as well be!
Now the only question is who stole the living tech from who? LOL.
