AKA Armored Seahorse and Gun Horse

The serpent Seahorse is the newest creation of the Lemurian Master Biomancer Gene Mage engineers and has only been available for the last four years. It is a fierce yet majestic looking creature that radiates confidence and strength. They are golden brown with white and black markings and accents, and gold flecks in their hard armored hide. The head is that of a giant seahorse with many frilled and spiky fins. The body is also horse like, but more like what if a horse was combined with a bullfrog, with a deep barrel chest and muscular physique. However, the thick armored legs go beyond anything that resembles a horse and the tail is that of an elegant fish or serpent. The biggest innovation, beside the armored hide, are placements for Stonecaster cannons and ion blasters above them that mount right into the armor of the War Steed’s shoulders.

Wow!Well done concept!

Now that is one kick ass sea horse. XD It can be pretty hard to get that sort of facial structure to look intimidating or... Well, not just plain silly, but I think you accomplished it very well. It seems like something so large would be difficult to ride though, you'd get some seriously bowed legs after awhile.
