The Probocius

Here goes a sketch of the Probocius.
In the sketch you'll find a specimen, an assault craft, a freighter, a heavy fighter and a drop ship.

Sorry if the sketch is bad art, but I'm with a flew and my wife doesn't let me sit in the drawing board. Bed, pencil and pen... and coughing.

"... do you understand, Mr. Gordon? It is stupid to compare a Probocius with an elephant, the same way it is stupid to call to a bat bird. Because natural selection uses the same "tools" for different creatures in different moments, it doesn't mean that they are the same. A probocius isn't an elephant, or a mammal, nor even a vertebrae. It is more like a squid that gained intelligence, became gregarious and technologically advanced, Mr. Gordon. But even this is a fallacy for the genetic material of the Probocius is completely different from the genetic material in the fabric of earth life. Do you understand?! It works in a different way! So please, Mr. Gordon, don't insult my ears calling the probocius elephant men. Now, about the dynamic conditions of Grathar III, I must agree that..."

love the text! The ships might be a bit complex for our quick gaming needs though - with the little probiscus on the front but keep the ideas coming!

I actually like the ship, for the intended size, it shouldn't be that difficult if you make the probiscus on the front a flat piece of card that just wraps around the cockit section...

I'll draw a side/front/up drawing of the ship if you want. Just tell me.

The Second War of Expansion - General Callendar 12.345

The ugly human female side slipped him again and his energetic rod whirred in the air where she had been moments ago. The Probocious warrior howled in anger. Slim and pink as rock worms from his home planet and with a fowl smell, these humans were ferocious fighters. And he knew that she wasn't a warrior, just a tech mechanic. That was the reason that this planet was already doomed. The 88sect troops that landed were seasoned veterans and the Probocious were just colony guard rabble. But this woman would not see the victory of her sisters. That was for sure. Using his bigger mass, he charged against her. Her dagger cut a deep wound in his second left arm, but the energy rod connected with her belly at maximum strength. She died in a whisper. He shouted his empty victory with anger. It was the killing path and he couldn't change it. "Let's find another human worm before the surrender", he said aloud. And as stealthy as a Probocious can move, he moved to another street of the doomed city of Amaralis.
