Really? They seem much more lively than anything that the reapers make. They just make dry corpsey robot zombies, these fine ladies don't look like zombies to me. But the syntheticness of the husks does reflect on them, you just made them look better than a husk, a lot better.
well thank you ^^ but I really should put up a "what the are these soldiers made out of" picture so people will get what im talking about when I post shadow ops marines or blood forge marines XD ok so here is a quick run through of what they are these soldiers are products of a progenitor marine ( a powerful soldier with the ability to reforge living matter into a sentient, intelligent, competent, fighting soldier) the newly created or forged soldier will have almost identical skills of the progenitor marine but retain some personality of their former selves. In addition to the new skills their bodies after being "reforged" will have a new fibrous and tensile structure ( think adam jensen from deus ex/ dirge from the starwars clonewars cartoon/uroboros from RE5) these bodies posses high durability and can take a ton of combat stress. the bodies also being forged with traces of a dark element ( basically its a power source that is created from the pure hatred harvested from a fallen god's body (yeah weird)) the bodies gain unique skills and abilities based on flaws, strengths, fears, and insecurities of the host. but yeah thats a small explanation of how these warriors come to be XD hope it helped
Epic, thank you, I have an idea like that, but with less magic... In fact no magic/godly parts. A neo-organic if you will. Basically the process starts with the host receiving the nano bots which work the system on the molecular level, they start simple upgrading cell systems and structures by repalcing and adding new parts to the cells, rewriting DNA, mostly with help form XNA, this is new synthetic DNA that was just made like last week. On the human scale changes would be painful at first, as tissue is replaced with more effective things, the bones would be edited to provide shelter, and a reproduction site for the nanobots which by then a fully integrated with the subject body, effectively replacing 25% of water resources and adding 50% weight to all systems, due to increase in molecular density, which is caused by swapping out normal cell compounds with new synthetic ones. The bots also allow the subject to suffer nearly no damage from bullets fire at any speed, by acting like a liquid substance. This liquid form also can be used in movement. They also allow the control and modification of ones own genetic material, and will upgrade when new, and better DNA is found(This happens no matter what). Whats also cool is that when i think of how one would look, they look a lot like you guys, but the have square pupils for a optional/stock choice for eye configuration. Cloning in doesn't often happen unless the subject is split, and put into separate, places with no available form of contaminating with the other, both assume the other is dead so nether are given the shut down option. For most you just re merge when one finds the other. Oh and sorry about writing so much.
