now that Velkoz confirmed + the battle cast model was shown, i think that Velkoz is in the very front of the picture, and the thing in the back is not Vel. just an idea heres the link to the model video: www.reignofgaming.net/news/273…
The first in the "robo"-lane is Cho'gath, next (under cho'gath head) Nocturne, than Urgot, than that thing with these three "spikes" coming from its head is Kog´Maw and finally at the end that really blurry thing in the back is Vel´Koz.
Sorry but you the one under Cho isn't Noc, that's Skarner if anyone. One of the reds specifically told people that Noc and Kha are not part of the Battle Cast crew, they're completely different skins, otherwise it would be Battle Cast Kha and Noc not Mecha Kha and Eternum Noc. :/ Sorry to burst your bubble.
It's also a very early teaser of Vel. Same thing with how Jinx's tattoo was on the wrong arm in her teaser with pool party skins. Things change, but its fairly obvious that the one eye, three tentacle thing in the back is Vel
Keep in mind that in the first splash art they released, the back was foggy and we could really see much else other than the eye and tentacles , now the artist could of fixed it/ changed it to be the same as what the battle cast model is.
actually, the original splash, which was then edited, did in fact contain the old design with more angles. it is currently on his deviantart page as well. also the upload date is in line with the original splash before mist was added. this leads me to the belief that the design in early stages was in fact more angular and battlecast velkoz was what became shrouded in mist.
To add to the discussion, I would like to show you the Vel Battlecast Skin splash. media-titanium.cursecdn.com/lo… here it specifically shows Vel at the front, not just for the obvious reason, but to show that in the background that Viktor is there along with Cho, plus a new Creation behind Viktor!
