    Horde Prime: Pick one

    Well I've been trying different versions of Prime for the past 3 days. These three are the ones that actually stood out to me. All of these need a few finishing touches, but I would like you to decide which one I should submit since its only 1 version per entrant. following are the three versions:

    Preternian Warlord (MYP take)



    My take on what an MYP Horde Prime would look like. As stated, in the show the Horde wasn't planned to be the technologically advanced force as shown in the filmation toon. So I thought of making Horde prime looking a bit aged & would probably transform into a more monsterous form when the tme comes. The design is far from complete, but i'm sure it gives a basic idea.


    Machine/Organic Hybrid



    A semi Filmation *** MYP concept. He can use most of his magic & the machinery attached to him helps him in amplifying himself. This version would actually be hidden within the giant robot shown in the Filmation show & the wires linked to Prime help co-ordinate the robot's movement.


    Completely Cybernetic



    Don't think I need to explain much about this version.

    Anyway! I hope you enjoy the designs & thanks for voting.

    I voted for the machine/organic hybrid, but I like the head of the Preternian Warlord better.

    I'd say take the machine/organic body and put the warlord head on it and you have a winner.

    I've always liked the mechanical/technological aspect of the Horde. Skeletor and the Snakemen use magic, so it makes the Horde unique.

    With that said, I still like the Horde having some magic (Shadow Weaver, Hordak, Horde Prime) but with a technological twist.

    I gotta say PreEternian Warlord.

    He looks very ancient, old, and sacred.
    I actually like the Old and aged adversary.

    Hmm... they've all got something going for them.. but out of them all, I think the aged warlord is the LEAST interesting actually.

    The organic/machine hybrid looks a bit too messy, but it's the concept I like the best. The completely cybernetic one looks the best, but I want him to have some magic.

    I'd have to go with the one in the middle at this stage.

    Excellent idea this thread! If artists are unsure of what direction to take their design, they simply make a mini-challenge thread like this.

    Thanks for voting guys. I once again state that these are not totally finished. I'm just posting the pics for reference. The final design will be based on the pic that wins the poll.

    Theme wise only I prefer the first one, but design wise I find the cyborg to me very treatening looking and his sheer size and stamina just ooze evil and danger!

    i voted warlord but i think think the organic parts of the hybrid should be incorperated into it and it bulked up like the hybrid maybe...

    either way 2-bad you designs are just getting better and better....

    awesome stuff

    I definitely dig that mechanical / organic hybrid the best, but the Preternian Warlord is a close second. The giant hooks on the hybrid really sell his deadliness.

    Without reading too much into this.....

    Preternian Warlord(MYP): Perfect

    Machine/Organic hybrid: Too busy

    Completely Cybernetic: Out of proportion

    I don't like the Preternian Warlord idea because I was not a huge fan of the MYP version of Hordak. While I loved the update visually, I wanted Hordak to be more than just another dark sorceror (this is something I have expressed in great detail before) we already had Skeletor and King Hiss. So I would like to think of Horde Prime as more than another dark warlock.

    I love the cyber/flesh mix. Not a fan of the purely cybernetic sketch as it looks more like a horde minion than anything... However I am a fan of the idea.

    Hordak's magic failed him in the new toon. He was defeated. So who's to say that in his search for more power, he couldn't encounter an immmensely evil and vastly power AI force that wants to enslave the universe and purify it by making it inorganic (think Brainiac, The Matrix, whatever) and in order to gain this power, it bonds with Hordak to create the 'techno' mage we love.

    One would think that in a world of science and sorcercy, it would be possible a vastly intellect, evil AI being could find a way to conquer mystical arts and become immune/superior to magics. Some petty magician attempts an illusion, its keen sensors can see right through it. Some shoddy conjurer tries to threaten it with beasts, it smashes them under its metal foot. Some tawdry witch blasts it with a raw bolt of arcane force, it creates a powerful energy field that fizzles it out. For almost anything that magic can do, ultra-science can topple sorcery. This is Horde Prime. Think about it.

    I like the second one better but his right limbs seem a little far fetched to me...

    Well, the Preternian Warlord is dominating! I still am rooting for some cybernetics to added into his designs, (the second design is my personal favorite still) but it looks like people prefer the sorcerer aspect of Horde Prime most!

    Hey man. Have you decided on which version to primarily base your Horde Prime on?

    It would appear as if the majority fancies the pre-ternian warlord, but with some small amount of cybernetics thrown in to spice it up.

    Anyways, whatever you chose, we're anxiously awaiting you in the challenge. ^^

    2-bad: can't wait to see your take. i would say though, i hope you continue to develop the other two, as separate characters. some folks around here (gbagok in particular, iirc) have floated the idea of a horde council, and i think all three of your designs could work in that framework. you know i'm a big fan of your character designs, and i'd hate to see any of yourdesigns go to waste!
