On the mineral rich planet of Eos, the Helios corporation has set forth from earth to find new resources to sustain the empty earth until a new, viable planet can be found to populate.
The Helios corporation use mechanical robots to carry out most tasks set outside of the structures which they have erected to live in during their operations on Eos. The planet, however, is a hostile place with savage creatures that won't be so forgiving for intruders.
Kronguux's share clear similarities to earths own crabs apart from the fact that they are the size of buses and have an instant dislike of water.
Kronguux by nature are savage, hostile creatures that will attack anything that comes into proximity to them, even other Kronguux's. They live in the dense jungles of Eos and live off low lying shrubs and plant matter. They can easily clear large areas of jungle with their massive pincers by chopping down trees and other obstructions in their way. Nothing stops a hungry Kronguux.
By far the most bizarre feature of them (despite their sheer size) is the fleshy lobes that hang out of gaps in it's shell. These 'lobes' are assumed to act like a 'scare' tactic. Normally they are a dull orange colour but once startled, Kronguux's have been seen to make these lobes almost glow a very bright orange. They may be a natural bioluminescence that also triggers at night as these glowing lobes can been seen on Kronguux's at night where these large, brutish creatures put on an almost, serenely beautiful display of colour.
I really like the eyes and the shape of the head, it's cool. You did a great job on realism for this moc. There is something soo right about how you angled and positioned the legs. Great job, looks convincing enough :D
