Phalanx by Iron-Fox Phalanx by Iron-Fox
Updated Sunday Apr 7, 2013. I was unsatisfied with how the overall piece looked, so I retouched the whole thing

The Phalanx [fey-langks] is a mechanized soldier developed and mass produced in the war factories of Hell.

Since the dawn of time Hell has observed mankind's ingenuity for killing one another with admiration, and so Hell has reconstructed and augmented some of man's technology as they see fit.

The Phalanx is operated by a combination of minor demonic possession and artificial intelligence. The entire mechanism is heavily armored and well powered by a hybrid hellfire reactor core.

The Phalanxes get their name from the ancient Greek and Macedonian battle formation, as they will bond together to form a single well protected unit.

The minigun fires armor-piercing tungsten carbide ammunition

This is really, really good work...I like how you have presented it too just enough space between each concept drawin...the chest region has great detailing looks like a guy you don't want to cross!

Thank you very much. I really wanted it to carry an intimidating presence along with a sense that this thing will take just about anything you could throw at it and think nothing of it.
thanks again, I put a lot into revamping the chest area.

Holy hell this thing is cool o.o I'd hate to see a legion of these storming out of a portal XD Is there *anything* mortal-made that can damage it beyond a small ding in the armour?

Iron-Fox Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I agree hehe. Yes, just like any machine they can break down or seize up when parts are jammed or damaged. Still it would take a lot to bring down just one of them. so to answer your question yes a mortal-made weapon could do the trick but it would have to be something powerful

So nothing as mundane as a spanner getting wedged in it -w- XD It'd be hilarious if it came with an off switch or something, just for sake of something that badass having a really dumb weakness XD

Still, these things do look built to last :3

mhmm. LOL yeah that would be pretty funny. I would imagine a scene like: (The Devil ranting at the demonic engineers): "What the F&#$ you guys! I know I'm the father of all lies but, Honestly, wtf?!" LMAO

that's what I wanted too, made tough and stable.

So does it have a close combat type of weapon? Or does it do thing the brawlers way?
Reply
:iconiron-fox:
Iron-Fox Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
it wouldn't need a close combat weapon, the whole thing is severally armored and powerful. it could just swing an arm or slam a fist down. so pretty much brawlers way. it would also just unload at point blank range.

lets see big well guarded and well armed foe a frontal guard id dought anything could stand let alone fight against anything like this. the only thing about it is it seems bulky and slow but takeing into account what its designed for its perfect in every way

hehee it's pretty much a multipurpose walking tank.
And the Main character of the story/game Stitches, can take them on. He can even take control over them, by eliminating the minor possession all that's left is the AI which will obey demonic commends.

thanks a bunch, I wanted it to slightly resemble various armors in history, the first of which was a Knight's suit of armor and the Roman shield, and went from there.
