Heavy Gunner Erhard by PeterPrime Heavy Gunner Erhard by PeterPrime
Here's another character from my sci-fi project.

Heavy Gunner Erhard, the heavy weapon specialist of the 11th Lemurian Executioner squad, one of the 11 most renowned and elite squads in the empire. It's members consists of battle-hardened super soldiers and high ranked officers from the army.

The squad is tasked with the deadliest missions in the universe, often leading to almost impossible situations. But nevertheless, they emerge victorious all the time, without much struggle thanks to their supreme technology, equipment, vehicles and cunning tactics.

Erhard wears the best possible gear available to any soldier. His suit is fused with an experimental EXO core, the one used in the lethal EXO suits, allowing him to use two built-in EXO blades in battle. Like any other lemurian soldier, he is equipped with tough xenolith armor, active camouflage, a teleportation kit, personal shield generator and advanced targeting optics. His armor is a special heavy variant, consisting of additional arms to aid him in battle. With such a wide array of weapons, Erhard effectively becomes a mobile weapon platform, able to provide heavy cover fire and destroying armored targets with ease.

He usually carries two heavy cannons in his original arms, mostly the devastating lemurian vulcan gattling cannon, heavy flamethrower, laser cannon or a plasma cannon. While the two hands at his back are fused with the deadly EXO blades. The two smaller arms in the front usually wield smaller firearms, such as pistols or rifles. And lastly, his armor has access to a shoulder mounted Rail Cannon.

I can see gunners like Erhard having to go through years of training to attain the position, because learning to use new limbs is less than easy.

Same applies to most of them actually! 

Not to mention lemurians can use magic as well.

Eh, magic in Sci-fi never appeals to me much. Kinda kills the 'science' part.

I mean, it's yours to do with as you please, I was just stating my opinion.

Thank you! Yeah, I am trying to come up with something unique, but it's quite difficult with all the sci-fi hype nowadays.

Haha, I'll keep posting more stuff from this story over time! :)

Well I get the gist of the lemurian's technological superiority.

But what about the opposing force, their nameless enemy factions?

What do they possess to go against lemurian's best?

I hope it's nothing mediocre...

:iconpeterprime:
PeterPrime Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014   Digital Artist
In truth, nothing. Only sheer numbers. They cannot salvage lemurian technology, and they cannot get their hands on the special material lemurians use, the xenolith, since that can only be found on the lemurian homeworld.

And I haven't shown the best of the best yet, the royal guard, the EXO Omega variants and the Empire's strongest commanders, the praetorians. Although the Executioner squads directly serve them, and are considered their personal retinues and take direct orders from a praetorian.

The only race on par with Lemuria will be pure evil, unlike the Lemurian Empire, which focuses on preserving the planets and saving most lifeforms, this race focuses on nothing but devouring everything in it's path. Even the empire can barely hold them off.
Although, I didn't work on them at all so far haha. But I am thinking of the good old biological approach mixed with technology. Or maybe adding some undead elements to them, not really sure. 

But yeah, I'll try not to make the normal humans too crappy either.

Oh goody!

I thought it's gonna be a Mary-Sue and Marty-Stu army (no offense).

I'll be looking forward to the opponent although I sense it's alot similar to a certain faction, and it's not Zerg

Hehe, I'll try to avoid that. But even so, I'll be telling the story from the antagonists' point of view (Lemuria). So it's only natural they're overpowering.

And that's what I'll try to avoid. Which is a rather difficult task. Unfortunately, there would be similarities, it's hard to come up with something totally unique with all these games/movies in the industry.

This is a marvellous piece of work, I cant even begin to imagine the time and effort put into this picture. In all honesty, I came across this picture on a whim while satisfying my curiosity for mecha images. Then I came across this, I read that you had some project going on. Is it going to be a story posted in DA? The thought makes my heart pump excitedly so.

Thank you very much!

Well, yes, I think I will do that. First of all, I want to draw the concepts for the main characters, who are the members of this squad, their equipments, vehicles, mechs etc. And start painting certain scenes with them after all that. But that will take a really long time.
I'll try to write chunks of stories for each character in the meantime.

And thank you for your interest! I'll do my best to come up with such a project in the near future! :)
