SPLICERS Metamorph Armored by ChuckWalton SPLICERS Metamorph Armored by ChuckWalton
Splicers Metamorph Armored XenoForm

DOUBLE CLICK FOR BEST RESULTS & Please Leave Comment!!!

Hey Everyone, I recently completed illustrations for (2) new Splicers O.C.C.s (Metamorph & Swarmlord) in the latest Rifter#51 published by Palladiumbooks. This issue can be purchased directly through Palladiumbooks:

Splicers Guru, Chris ‘Slappy” Kluge & I developed this concept together and it was a ton of fun seeing this concept come to life. The Metamorph is one of the illustrations where I did illustrations for its 15 various forms. I will upload and showcase (5) of the 15 forms as I don’t want to give away everything.

The experimental Biotic variation known as the Metamorph is an attempt to augment human beings with the awesome power of Bio-Technology without forcing them to permanently surrender their humanity. The idea was that the subject would retain his human/her form and physiology when interacting with civilians back at home, but before entering the field, they would be able to quickly transform their body into a powerful Bio-Tech war machine. Metamorphs can assume various forms, some are larger than their human forms, some are smaller. Watching a Metamorph transform into a larger form is somewhat disgusting, but witnessing one transform into a smaller creature is truly horrifying.

Armored Form: This form was designed to maximize defensive protection at the expense of pretty much everything else. The thick armored shell substantially limits mobility and the form does not really possess much in the way of natural weapons, but it can really absorb punishment. The back and limbs have sort of a rounded appearance. This is to allow the armored form to pull in his limbs and fold his body into a tight ball. When tucked into this armored ball, the Metamorph is even more resistant to impact weapons and concussive forces like explosions and rail gun rounds (takes half damage).

... Why not give it some kind of cannon, if all it is good for is TAKING damage... it isn't much use in combat. Tanks don't just sit there and let themselves get shot at.

Thank You! I wanted the Armored Form to be cool enough for players to select it, being that it is a defensive form more so than an offensive one. Ankylosaurus & Glyptodont were my basis for it and then tanked it up with bulk and muscle to tote that armored bulk efficiently. The way I see it, Upgrade it & load it up with Horned Defense, Serrated Spikes/Spurs, Super Light Cell lasers and a major breath weapon like Plasma breath and you have a Juggernauting destroyer. Adding Super regeneration and it just gets nasty.

Damn, he's ripped! Kind of reminds me of either the Devil Hulk, the Abomination, or a more-realistic-looking Gigantosaur from "Ben 10 Alien Force." Whatever it is, it's cool!

Thanks Groudan! Yeah I had fun with these xeno forms and I see its no rocket science in guessing which character you would play a game, XD! BTW, I added a few more critters to display some of the other xenoforms.

I really like those two morphs. theyre my favorite out of all of them. i mean this guy just looks plain awesome and so does the dragon one. i mean you said that seeing someone transforming into these things would be horrific to see but if i saw that happen id be like "WOW thats so cool!" lol. and if it was i who was transforming into this guy or the dragon one....well you can say i would be VERY happy lol. awesome job again :)

Ankylosaurus is a seriously bad ass looking armoured dinosaur. I like the big shoulderpads, they're an essential part to armour in a lot of fantasy art these days. I really like the spikey looking tail, and I would like to see that look used more in the upper body.

Like your thinking! I actually was going to place spikes on the armor shell and shoulders, but its an option that can be purchased & upgraded for this form's enhancement along with other ideas, so I had to leave the shell bare for upgrade possibilities.

Man...I wish I still had money to spend on Palladium Books. I miss all the great artwork. This is a stand out example!

Of course, I miss the incredible story telling, as well. But I always drool over the artwork :D
