Or be a mutant that'd do it myself. One that can mutate in many horrifying ways then return to a normal person. Like, for example, if you've watched the anime Parasyte, I'd mutate like that, but not just one limb, I mean the whole body.

I'd be creating an Empire of Soldiers with looted high-tech, killing people like these in ways as brutal as the said people.

It'd be like a mixture of the Crimson Lance from Borderlands, and the Enclave from Fallout. But less evil.

 Oh boy, you will sheit bricks when you see this.

 So, I was surfing the internet, currently digging for WoW(World of Warcraft) Events and stuff for fun, and found out something scary.

 It turns out that in 2005, during August through November, Blizzard added a debuff called "Corrupted Blood" that undead tauren bosses could unleash upon players who appeared in it's dungeon. These dungeons and bosses could only be fought/encountered by High-Level Players. It would be inflicted via poisoned blade, and it would pick off health, with 25 health per second disappearing. NOTE: The Higher Level you are, the more Damage Resistance and Health you have. You could lower it to 1 health per second if you were high enough. It was also highly contagious, infecting any players and/or NPCs that were not Dungeon-based or Undead. It was 100% contagious, meaning it would infect you instantly.

 So, anyways, the debuff only lasted for 3 minutes at maximum, so that it would not follow you out of the Dungeon. Or so Blizzard thought.

 It ended up spreading from the High-Level Dungeons to EVERYWHERE with populations above at least 10% of the server size within it.

 Since Low-Level Players often hung out in the cities with the biggest populations, and had little health and little damage resistance, they died first and instantly tons of times. It would also kill NPCs, Quest Givers, and Merchants regardless of health. Permanently. It spread to so many areas that it became known as the "Corrupt Blood Plague" by players, and the "Corrupted Blood Incident" by Blizzard. There were also ingame "Bio-Terrorist" Trolls who intentionally spread it around. For example, many Alliance, Horde, and Religious players, whether ingame religion or IRL religion, would create safezones and quarantines, due to the fact that the main goal in this game came from roleplaying, saving your faction, and leveling up, to simply surviving. Troll players would often intentionally infect those areas. It became so bad, that scientists and Counter-Terrorist Units studied the WoW Community for the sake of future RL events like this. It took 2 months before it got cleaned up by good players and Blizzard.

 Another disease like this happened July through December in 2012, called the Death Knight Plague Incident, where Death Knights found and exploited the effects of a bug that allowed them to use a certain spell, which would infect a enemy player and/or an enemy NPC and turn them into a zombie that could infect anything it killed, in a way that allowed them to use it in Non-PvP areas and towards Low-Level Players the settings did not allow them to attack. Also towards Friendly-Marked Players that were not Horde or Undead. It became 75% as bad as the Corrupted Blood Plague, due to the fact it took you being killed first.

 If you were an NPC, the Zombie was controlled by an AI. If you were a player, you could either play as it or leave the game, having an NPC AI take the Zombie over. It got patched and Blizzard banned any and all known Death Knights involved.

 NOTE: Skeletons mark were dead players would fall down and lie until their corpses became skeletons that would wait there until they were looted. Even then, it took 25 minutes before the skeleton despawned after being looted.

I think you could have solidified the scale with the figures in the bg, that marauder doesn't look much bigger than the dead farmer slumped against the wall
brutal all the same :)

...this piece is just psychotic fun, love the desaturated warm color tone and the use of a foreground element...blocking full view from the audience, it is this technique that really puts the viewer inside of the pic, well done ^_^
