Warframe - The Locust Typhus

 

Alright fellow Tenno, I finally got Locust 2.0 (Typhus) up and mostly sorted out. The post now includes information on Morphology, Physiology, and Powers as well as a few other pieces of information. Also keep in mind some of this is still a work in progress, but at least everything looks neat and tidy. https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/176524-typhus-parasiteviral-type-update-typhus-physiology-wip-17022014/?p=2060787
 

Old Concept

Hey everybody,


if you noticed on my previous thread, I put one of my old work i did quite a while back. So I decided to redesign him with some new sketch-designs.

 

Originally this was a bug type warframe, well he still is but in the redux version, he has become heavily mutated. I was playing with this idea, what if a warframe lost control and became rampant like what happened with the technocite in Dark Sector.

 

Warframe - The Locust

warframe___locust_s_exoskeleton_by_mrrum

I based it more on a knight and used frost as a reference.
I was also heavily inspired by Tsutomu Nihei's works.
You can easily tell from this piece.

Exoskeleton info:



Exoskeletons contain rigid and resistant components that fulfill a set of functional roles including protection, excretion, sensing, support, feeding and acting as a barrier against desiccation in terrestrial organisms. Exoskeletons have a role in defense from pests and predators, support, and in providing an attachment framework for musculature.

Exoskeletons contain chitin; the addition of calcium carbonate makes them harder and stronger.

In-growths of the arthropod exoskeleton known as antipodes serve as attachment sites for muscles. These structures are composed of chitin, and are approximately 6 times as strong and twice as stiff as vertebrate tendons. Similar to tendons, antipodes can stretch to store elastic energy for jumping, notably in locusts.

An exoskeleton is the external skeleton that supports and protects an animal's body, in contrast to the internal skeleton (endoskeleton) of, for example, a human. Some animals, such as the tortoise, have both an endoskeleton and an exoskeleton.

 

 

One of Locust's Pets

This is a work in progress of a creature that Locust uses in one of his attacks that live inside his body.

This is one of his abilities called "Drain":

While lunging his hand towards the enemy, Locust unleashes a snaking metallic tendril, Which then seeks the bones of the target either tearing apart or absorbing its essence. This is necessary for Locust needs to replenish his Armour to prevent it from degrading or fracturing.

 

Here's the helmet.

the_locust_2_by_mrrumbles-d6cdhf1.jpg

I quick edited the helmet to give it slightly less flesh and more armor look.
I still kept the mandibles to keep the bug-like features.

That was originally part of the frame but the "flesh" shattered it making them into mandibles with tooth-like protrusions.

 

I know what your thinking I got inspired from dead space, but I was actually inspired by the 1980's version John Carpenter's The Thing and the 2011 version of it as well. I wanted to show how far I thought the Technocyte Virus on a warframe, if it went ramped. Since it does what it does normally.

Still I love the design. Makes me want to play dead space.

You know what else looks like a Zerg? A Tyranid!

 

Because blizzard technically stole it from GW.

Nope now THOSE ARE TRUE ZERG

AWWWW they are so adorable. I love the design of the warframe cause it actually makes me think of an infected warframe. I wanna see more of this guy.

Even though it looks like Zerg or Tyranid, I do believe that it is an interesting frame....(Zerg in the fact that it reminds me of Kerrigan from starcraft who was transformed into Zerg)

Kerrigan did not have mandibles of death on her neck though which is the most outstanding feature on that picture, and last I checked she got tranformed via a egg, if anything its has more in relation to this

Concept wise, and Planning Stages wise

Hmmm Very interesting design and concept if he were to have abilities I could definitely see him having a swarm ability of insects of some sort.

I don't see the similarities considering Kerri's skin was green(from when i last saw her) and now it has purple bits also as far as I know that bottom bit was either like a second jaw on zerg or it was their jaw. This guy obviously has a single jaw. I recommend you going back and playing through zerg again.

and my meaning was that it reminded me of Zerg due to the technocyte transforming him and giving him the mandibles (wich are found on the Zerg hydralisk), i was not meaning that it reminded of kerrigan herself. just the transformation.

Dude that two jaw thing I was talking about the hyrdalisk. I'm sorry ,but the Infestd are not zerg. Go back to starcraft.

I'll support this, who else want to see the Locust in Warframe?

 

To me it looks like a knight having a bad day... but is still going to kick some &#!.

Not really. Before Starcraft, Tyranids looked like this.

LOOK AT THOSE DAFFY BASTARDS!

Besides, it's not like generic bug swarm monsters haven't been showing up in sci-fi since Flash Gordon. Hek, if it wasn't for budget cuts the Borg would be bugs instead of S&M cyborgs.

Well, that's not precisely true.

As Games Workshop was growing, and Blizzard was growing too, they decided that a computer-game version of 40k would be good for both of them, and so they signed a contract and got to work, but about half way through, Games Workshop backed out of the project. So now, Blizzard was left with a project they had sunk tons of money and time into, but no longer had the rights to use the same models, so they had to change them as much as they could without ruining the overall feel of the universe in very little time, which is why the Space Marines look so much like the Terran marines, why the Protos have such similar technology and nature to the Eldar, and why the Zerg and Tyranids fans are constantly complaining, when in fact they are both one and the same.

 

That is why I said that they were "technically stolen."

Oh yeah, I think I've been told that before and forgot. I still think the Zerg art design lead them to change the Tyranids. Those early figs looked $&*&*#(%& :P
