Arctic War Beast by Davesrightmind Arctic War Beast by Davesrightmind
For eons, the Ka tribes of the north and the Nua tribes of the east have battled for territory, their epic clashes each more elaborate than the last. Each tribe prides themselves on their living weapons, their beasts of burden used to tip the balance in their ongoing war on this icy planet.
Here we see a Ka beast trainer out hunting his Freenok wolves, his black furs blowing in the wind. Freenoks are a vicious and aggressive beast used to seek out and hunt both game and enemy alike. But unfortunately for this proud warrior, he has let down his guard and a troop of Grantian Annihilators, ridden only by the most courageous and daring of the Nua tribesmen has managed to ambush him and his still young pets. Grantian Annihilators are considered to be the most prized of the warbeasts on this vast arctic tundra, and the Nua tribes proudly mark their monstrous mounts, sending fear through the veins of their enemies.

As if their size wasn't enough to do the job. :D

Been a while since I've entered the Creature Of the Week, figured I'd throw down on this one. Enjoy with eyes wide open. ;)

Thanks Scott. Lush huh? That's quite a compliment! Look a little closer and you should see what he's aiming for. These guys are opportunistic hunters as well.

He's hunting the rabbit on the left? He's a very poor shot if that's the case ;)

Lol, the one on the right. Suppose I could have made it a little more obvious. ;)
