The best derro's I've ever seen! First one of them that I thought they actually looked like good villians!

It was cool fun to make them look as mad, twisted and unhinged as their history dictates, there is no negotiating with these fellows.

Fanks due, this was easy, just reached for the family portrait....

Don't know why the repeater works, modelled it loosely on the chinese one, mag on top, lever action underneath. Like a normal lever action xbow but this on loads the bolt as it cocks the string....want to know more, use the damn web

Thanks Ralph, these dudes were awesome fun. The architecture is really Lovecraft/Mignola inspired stuff and possibly more fun than the Derro.

Detrimental Robots.

Dero....

These guys apparently are based on the ramblings of a crazy sci-fi author back in the thirties.

And heck, derros are crazy too.
