    beautiful! I might put it next to the zombie elephant and the great turtle, the unit can be made after the invention of genetic engineering. :)

    Theov... Genetic Engineering sounds like the best way to be able to gain a Giant Crab in game :thumbsup:

    I really like the eating fidget! Shame he doesn't walk sideways, but I can imagine that looking bad in game. Great unit!

    Thank You ruby_sauce... I wanted to have the Unit walk sideways but it did not look very good spinning around fast from walking sideways to fighting forward.

    Man, I don't know if I like the texture or the animation better. Both are so well done. One thing I always love about your units is how crisp the lines are even when in motion.

    AnthonyBoscia... Thank You Very Much for your comment. I do like as much clarity and details as possible for units.
    Sometimes the limited palette colors and short animations do cause problems to work out for units.

    Awesome Giant Enemy Crab unit, Vuldacon!

    The only question I have is if it takes massive damage if you hit its weak point? :p

    Seriously, though, it would probably be useful for the Fallout mod or something like that.

    DJ Bonebraker... Good to see you back!
    Yes, if you hit the Giant Crab in its weak spot it takes massive damage but good luck finding that spot :lol:

    In my mod it will have high offence and HP values, but low defence, and marksmen units will have stealth attack against it.:D
