How about running a CREATURE DESIGN CONTEST? I for one would like to see what people are devising.

The problem with prepping Giant Space Squid is the Amonia flavor. So nasty. Its not like normal squid. If you dont cook it shortly after its demise, it can never be eaten.

I know this from my years as a Rogue Trader.

Braised Lictor Cheek is exceptional too.

Double headed... does that mean a head in each end?

What about this new Xenos-Breed ?

The Ghandians:

The Ghandians are a race of short statued, pinkfurred creatures, that strongly resemble terran teddybears, The concept of violence is completely alien to them. Their mindset is mostly naive, childlike and pacifistic to the state of madness. The Ghandians believe, every problem in the universe can be solved by singing a joyfull (and overly sweet) song about fun and friendship. One should suppose, that Ghandians are no match for a well armed human soldier - a Human is twice as large as a Ghandian, the Ghandians are quite weak, could not fire a gun even if they try and would´nt even think of fighting, even if beeing attacked. But unfortunately, Ghandians are immortal, nearly invincible, apear in large numbers and reproduce really rapidly. The only way to get rid of this bunch of singing and laughing Teddybear-Xenos is to exterminate the planet or the ship, they infested (and even the planet or ship is blasted, a lot of Ghandians will float through space - seeking a funny new adventure and new friends)

One of three things I reccon,

-The Tyranid Hive Fleet's bellies.

-Collectives of barely a few thousand souls sitting tight,  perpetually brooding over their declining numbers and  impending doom.

-A great many of said few thousand making a secret pilgramage to join with those who they see may be their long lost brothers, The Demiurg.

"Collectives of barely a few thousand souls sitting tight, perpetually brooding over their declining numbers and impending doom."

Since we are in the 40K-Universe here, there could easily be a few million souls without making much difference. So, what about a really gigantic space-convoi of squat-spaceships, that avoided destruction and searches for a new homeworld ? We would have Battlestar Galactica with Space-Dwarfes.

Or what about a small Squat pocketempire at the fringes of the Imperium, that was founded by  colonists from the homeworlds millenia ago and was forgotten? This small "squat-reich" consists "only" of a few starsystems and is rather insignificant to the Imperium as a whole, but on a local scale, this Squats could become a major faction. They would also make perfect "customers" for a rogue-trader.

Gods, this... this is sick, sick I tell you. It only be worse if they worshipped a large purple dinosaur choas-creature that was slowly destroying childrens minds with its insideous songs of love and peace.
 

Hey - that dinosaur-idea is great ! Perhaps it´s a chaos-god, that was previously unknown to mankind.

What sort of encounter info would you have for this Q'orl? Is it something you would run into randomly, or in a Space Hulk, or what?

No not really, but the Q'orl have a rather smal empire next to the eye of terror, so far they have been without warp capabilities. But It seems that they are able to put in mind controling worms of somesort into Navigators. ("the disapearance of so many navis personnel has despicable implications" quoted from xenology)

I would think this is something you would probably encounter in the beast house or other such situations. Laboratories of the ad. mechanicus, =][=, etc.

Here's one of my monsters:

 

The Arachnae

 


The Arachnae are among the most vile and sinister races mankind has encountered. Luckily there have been few encounters with them, and most people believe them to be mythical.
The Arachnae are spider like humanoids that feast upon living victims, sucking them dry of all fluids. They generally seem to prefer intelligent life, which they seem to have the disturbing ability to drain the victim’s knowledge and memories.
The Arachnae are obsessed with technology and constantly strive to improve and enhance their physical forms with bionic-like technology and genetical enhancement. Their level of technology is highly advanced with superior knowledge of genetics and machinery.
The Arachnae view mankind as the perfect slave race that can be easily modified to suit their purposes. They communicate through psychic telepathy and their minds are emotionless and analytical, and almost with a machine-like logic and systematic way of thinking.


Arachnae Infiltrator

WS BS ST T AG INT Per WP FEL Wounds
40 25 40 40 35 30 40 40 15 10

Movement: 2/4/5/6
Wounds: 8
Skills: Silent Move, Awareness, Concealment, Knowledge (Arachnae Tech), Intimidate, Climb +20,
Talents: Resistance (Poison)
Traits: Dark Sight, Ambidexterity, swift attack, Unnatural Agility, Resistance (Poison), fear 1
Armour: Arachnae Silk Robes (Head 3, Body 3, Legs 3, Arms 3)
Weapons: Claws (1d10+ 4 R + Arachnae Venom) Venom Injector (1D10-5 Toxic + Arachnae Venom)
Threat Rating: Xenos Majoris


Arachnae Venom (Instant/-10/Sedative)

This highly efficient venom is used to quickly stun and incapacitate their foes.

 

yeah i know its a bit of rip off several ideas but what the hell.
