I'm playing with texture a bit here. It's subtle (and what do we know about subtlety?) but I like the concept anyway. I was trying to get the skin of the body to have a different taste than the armor scales. ( Due to my synesthetic brain, taste, textue and color are all very closely intwined. Actually, there's a sound component too, but when I get that far in a discription most people start to get incredulous.) I don't think I quite have it here, but it's an interesting thought anyway.
