Does the Behemoth have the tentacles coming out of its whole body? I love this drawing, especially how you depicted the Behemoth.

It has a clutch of tentacles a bit further behind and underneath its head. I should be showing a more descriptive illustration of it soon.

GOLIATH vs GERMAN KRAKEN FIGHTER SUB
WHO WILL WIN...
Well its obvious enough even if you haven't read the book :D, but I'll spoil it... The Goliath xD

Obvious? I don't think it looks that obvious.
The German Kraken fighter Iron-Clad looks tough enough.

well yeah ill give it that... but i mean, its only like what? half out of the water give or take, and judging from how its maw is sized, it has a lot more length than you think, so more reserve tentacles to break the kraken fighting arms, however... if it hit the beastie in the eyes, i think it could have won the fight

Hmm ... fair enough.

In case of doubt, go for the eyes.

When I wrote, go for the mouth, I meant "fire at will in the mouth". :-P

In the nose? Hm hm. Could do.

In the ass? :-D that's sounding more comical than it should, to my ears.

If the British Empire keep making cool, kick-@$$, and creepy monsters, there won't be anything cool left for the Nazis or the Bolsheviks to bio-mechanically and genetically fabricate. The same goes to the Kaiser's big, bad monster mechs... well, guess they'll stick with mind blowing psychics and sorcerers.
