Reaper Hanar by AndrewRyanArt Reaper Hanar by AndrewRyanArt
My version: fast moving melee opponents with low life to compensate for their speed and vicious slicing abilities.
Still the drell and quarians to go. Might skip the Vorcha, they already look freaky enough.

So I changed the top of the design to look slightly more religious, in ME3 the Kasumi mission had the Hanar diplomat siding with the reapers due to it's belief that the enkindlers (protheans) would have wanted it. Or maybe it was just indoctrinated, I'm not toally sure but I was trying to show that the reapers would convert the Hanar through religious fanaticism.

....I wouldn't want to fight it that's for sure!

I gotta say, your designs are brilliant and I think EA missed out on including these twisted creations into the game! In a universe where the horror comes from having the familiar things twisted and turned against you, it seems so odd they didn't do *MORE* of it. Besides, I'm sure your designs are better than any they could've come up with! ;) I'm steadily faving my way through all of them, lol

the Kraken: this unit can move extremly fast across th abttle feild due to it's floating ability and with its nosix clawed tentalces it can grab units to throw them out of cover or cut them in two

I'd always wondered how the hanar would look all reapered.  Nice renditions! 
Jamespaczer Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013
Dude really cool I thought the Hanar should have spikes on its tentacles though.
Jamespaczer Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013
I see this being a Reaper equivalent to a Geth stalker. Climbs on the ceiling moves quickly. When you shoot it it will fall and act dead only to scurry away and attack again. You have to double tap it. Is it okay to share on my James Shepard page?

If that was in the game, my Shep would just be like: "fuuuuuuuuu*k that" and I'd turn off my xbox


And cry TT_TT

I thought that it would be used as some kind of fire support xD All those legs can support a ton of guns.

The Ceph is the product of Reaperfied Hanar. Due to the aquatic nature of Hanar resulting in required technological assistance,Reaper nano-tech improvises by using precise mass effect fields to allow these husks to hover above the ground,freeing up their movement. Naturally weak-bodied like the species they're created from,Cephs rely more on getting up close and personal to their enemies to either strangle them with their tentacles or sedate them with powerful toxins to either be killed,harvested,or turned into husks without resistance.

Or, kraken. Would that work?

Bioware should hire you for concept artist for all of your reaper crosses are spectacular :clap:. at some part of the game didn't the hanar race get indoctrinated :? and it would have been badass fight these guys at some point along with the other reaper crosses you designed. 
goodfoot1971 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2013
Yes. During the Katsumi mission, they discovered an indoctrinated Hanar working at the embassy.
SN2 Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2013
i didn't have Katsumi…i was not aware of katsumi DLC until i pasted ME2 and didn't want to play it again bc ME3 came out and played that…she doesn't even make a difference in ME3 :( or you don't even get to pick her for your team. i know that hanar that gets indoctrinated was interesting but he didn't have reaper ted on him :(
goodfoot1971 Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2013
Yeah, he wasn't an "altered" Hanar, just under the Reaper's control. Similar to the Illusive Man I presume.

Honestly though, Kasumi's mission is one of the better loyalty missions in ME2, it's worth a playthrough IMO.
SN2 Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2013
i was going to start the adventure again from ME1 :D and will get all the DLC so i know i experience the full adventure :nod: and record it if i could find a great game records like people do for let's plays

Named for the sea monster in human folklore, the kraken is a hanar husk. During conversion, Reaper nanotech increases the strength of the hanar's tentacles and the potency of their venom. The claws at the end of the tentacles can hack and slice through armor with ease, while the venom can kill within minutes.

You know, when I saw those wicked claws on the ends they reminded me of the arms the Reaper capital ships have. I could really see this having an attack like them, with those sustained lasers coming from a bunch of tentacles while it flies around. Like, it could attack multiple people at one time, or just completely chew through cover. SPOILERS: Considering Leviathan, I'd wonder if the Reapers would be anymore interested in another aquatic species like themselves. Would they show any affinity for altering them? One has to wonder.
SavageInsight Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013
I don't agree with the vicious slicing attack but I love the hydra tentacle look - my thought is these guys would have something mutated about their communication - something about em spectra emissions - and a combination of electrical arc and gripping attacks, like a squid. It's a little odd to see a hanar floating though - the Reapers tended to keep their ground forces on the ground based on however their origin species moved. Still really like this tho. Great job!
IceSamZero Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013 actually really bloody creepy. Well done.
Umbra16 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
Nice. The ends of his tentacles kind of look like the Avenger assault rifle.

haha not really. It's the only gun I used during all three games and on multiplayer. I'd probably recognize it anywhere.

That is the SCARIEST looking jellyfish I've ever seen. Those claws look vicious, and it's... 'head' gear... is really cool looking. Great job!
