In all the galaxy there can't be only like 20 species right? Have you guys ever thought up other races of any sort? I often do and here is one such idea:
The Lemia are a strang species they appear to be a plant animal hybrid with no technology of any sort. They spread seeds which grow up into their basic forms of one foot tall humanoids with a leaf growing out of its head on a vine. They use sunlight to energise themselves along with heat energies. When they get badly damaged a Lemia will morph into a large slug like form that gives "birth" to seeds thus re starting the cycle.
The Lemia have individual minds and communicate using bio-electrical impulses from their "brain". They can adapt to be harvesters, warriors or chemists. Which gather energy, fight, and make further adaptions respectively. They have appeared in numbers so large they make tyranids look like space marines. Due to their need for heat energy they often eat humanoids resulting in mass battles with the creatures.
When they to colonise another world they spread seeds into the atmosphere resulting in seeds drifting in space until they fall onto another planet. Lemia themselves are immortal never dying from age, but they can dye from means such as war. Wherever they go much flora grow unpredictably resulting in other being believing they control plants.
So what ideas for other species do you guys have.
The DuskDusk; a wild furry creature that is about the shape of a small(but stout) piglet. It apears wooly and sheep like, but its features are rather wolfish and it has long pertruding canine teeth on its lower jaw.. although playful and good hearted by nature, hungry swarms of them have been known to take down a mamoth.
LOL i'm silly.
That is not dead which may eternal lie,
for in strange aeons even death may die.
Yup, there are other species in the 40K galaxy, many of them briefly documented, such as the Lacrymole, the Jokaero, the Hrud, the Tarellians, the Ambul and many more. It's just that there isn't enough possible variation within the rules (or enough sculptors) to develop them into distinct, playable races.
If you want some more information about alien races in the 40k Universe I would check out the book Xenology from the Black Library. Very, very good book. It has pictures, drawings and very detailed dissection reports for Tau, Eldar, Orks and some unknown races such as the Umbra and the Hrud.
- Watch this space.
Well the Hrud ain't completely unknown. They have been around since Rouge trader and IMO are a very intresting race (their fluff have changed a lot since RT though. Back then they were Skaven in space).
As Xerxes said, there are many, many different speices in the 40k galaxy. But as he also said, it will be very hard to represent them in the game and give them a unique feel.
I know there are many races and species such as the hrud im just asking if you guys ever make your own for fun or for interesting fluff or using stuff like creature feature. That reminds me do you guys think we should get a new updated creature feature soon?
I made these monsters called Wraith Dracolith and they inhabit the deathworld of Wraith! they show psychic abilities, can speak to any alien but prefer to keep to them selves and ANYONE who tries taking ever a dead on off the planet for study is gunna gets bashed... alot turns out their "dead" are just really sleeping
Create flames for a galaxy and it will be warm. Put a galaxy in flames and it will be warm for the rest of it's existence.
intersting fluff, but why would a planet be called wraith? I think you used the name wriath a little to much. Other than that did you have any rules?
Wraith? Dead are just sleeping? Have you been watching Stargate Atlantis?
Whats up with 13 year olds using the word "dudes"? Sorry, But anyway i love thinking up new strains of nids. Mixing and maching parts and all that.
