Frills & Fauna: Death Stars

What could be more scary than a toxic starfish running at you? Introducing the Death Star.

Aptly named, death stars are highly toxic creatures that resemble starfish, but are wholly alien. Able to stand up and even run on their appendages, death stars charge at their foes and will smother anything that cannot outrun them.

Frills & Fauna: Globrats

It seems many fauna are taken advantage of by higher species. The next preview for Frills & Fauna is the Globrat.

Globrats are small, docile critters. They gorge on huge amounts of food and store it in their stomachs to digest. Their metabolism is incredibly slow, so they spend most of their time asleep or inactive. This trait has been abused by other species, who use them to store fuels or prohibited substances.

Frills & Fauna: Kolehogs

This week’s reveal for Frills & Fauna is the Kolehog! Small, loyal beetle-dog-pigs? Who knows!

Kolehogs, or “K-pigs” are boisterous, loyal creatures that are more than happy to be domesticated. Their backs are armoured in sheaths of bony exoskeleton, suggesting they may have had wings along their evolution. The hidden cavaties are often utilised by smugglers to hide their goods.

Frills & Fauna: Sphyrogs

Next up in the Frills & Fauna bestiary is the Sphyrog! Yes, unpronounceable frog things for your cargo bays!

Sphyrogs or “Janitor frogs” are seeminly harmless amphibians, so named for their disc-like mouth, used to rasp at food. Some traders are known to keep them as pets as they will literally eat anything – even the algae off cargo and ship walls.

Frills & Fauna: Dire Squirrels

The next reveal for Frills & Fauna is the dire squirrel, which was actualy the first model to be made for the project.

Born of nightmares, the flying dire squrrels are vicious, blood thirsty predators. Often mistaken for harmless critters, few victims escape their folly, of approaching them.

Introducing Frills & Fauna

Frills and Fauna is a small project I started in order to produce a selection of Sci-fi critters and accessories. I am aiming to launch it on Kickstarter in October. There will be a few initial sets of fauna and plenty of options to throw in individual extras should the project go beyond its funding goal (Stretch goals).
