Rictus, n. The expanse of an open mouth; A gaping grimace
SC Rictus, Shivan anti-fighter cruiser. Balanced for Inferno... that is to say, way over the top.


Nasty little bugger, isn't he? Looks kinda like a cross between a rugby ball and a hedgehog. A really angry hedgehog.


Some orthographics. It actually looks sorta like the Needler from Halo, doesn't it?


Its weakest spot; the underbelly. Too bad you have to fly through heavy flak and beam fire to get there.


The Rictus can take on as many fighters and bombers you can throw at it, and it's still hungry for more.


You'll be seeing this screen quite a bit... :devil:

It started out as an edit of the Raguel but took on a life of its own. The flak and AAA beams on this monster will make even Alpha 1 turn tail and run for the nearest warship. Best to let a corvette deal with it.
Oh, and did I mention it's shielded? ;7

It eats fighters quite easily, but the Bellerophon totalled it in a few minutes.

I'll post some nice pics once I get a chance to do a better test.

...this looks like the product of an unholy union between Shadow the Hedgehog (Sonic Adventure 2) and Lavos (Chrono Trigger).

The trick to good moddling is making something simple look extremely complex. This is simple and looks that. No other substantial comment.

Do you notice that the red skin and spikes are the ONLY things that make something look shivan.
