[BRC] Surt - 5 years on
Surt now inhabits the armour of the legendary Gonerhymm. The greatness of his predecessor only serves to encance his desolate view on life...
About this creation
Following the loss of his body, Surt's spirit was ritually bonded to a set of ancient armour from Drachen's collection...

The Scarabax Armour was originally worn by one of Certavus' own students, Gonerhymm. Made almost entirely out of exsidian and Spikit bone (Spikits having some of the toughest skeletons out of all the beasts of Bara Magna), Gonerhymm carved his own legacy as one of the most skilled Glatorian ever to grace the arena...

Surt is now the wearer, although he cares not for Gonerhymm's legacy. Since the incident, Surt has become more and more depressed, wracked with guilt from his past deeds, and certain that soon his spirit will fade - and nothing awaits him afterwards. He tries vehemently to put some good into the world, to make up fro his sins, but believes he will never be able to do this.

He is fading, and his brother Fenrir becomes increasingly frail. It is only a matter of time now before they both leave the face of Bara Magna...



His main weapon: The Scarabax Sword, used by Gonerhymm in the arena. Its edge has not bluntened, even after all its time in Drachen's vaults. It seems to gleam with ancient pride and power.



His shield is Exsidian, alloyed with magnetic Lodestone. The shield therefore draws blows from metal weapons towards it, and makes it easier to block and parry. Smaller beings like Agori can even be lifted with it, when it has a big enough current passing through it.



The helm is tough Exsidian, with Spikit leather straps. These flap uselessly now around Surt's lack of a face. All that fills the armour is a pale red, dusty mist, and a pair of green glowing eyes.







Fourth Wall Commentary:
---
The MOC uses ball-joints connected into Rahkshi torso pieces, and Mata feet. The connexion is surprisingly sturdy, and I can see why Cameron G uses it.

I've tried to give the whole armour a "Mandible Motif" and have added insectile mouthparts on his sword, shield, shins, breastplate and shoulders. The ones on his shins aren't actually attatched. I've used a few "illegal" connexions in this MOC.

Shoulders and waist are both completely posable. The lower legs are extendable as well, although I see no reason to exploit that particular feature in this MOC. Look at Anorex if you want to see a MOC of mine with extending limbs...

But all in all, this MOC is extremely poseable, and I love it becasue of that.




The song is called This Time Imperfect, by AFI. Possibly one of the saddest songs ever written...

And people call mad world(song not game.) depressing they really must not have heard this. Anyway Surt really does not show his depression. Though neither do I its masked by insanity. He looks good and I like the armor.
