Now I know its a piece of crap but my scanner is not working and i suck at paint. Ive tried to replicate my idea in paint. My final picyure will have a bigger head and better hoofs. Also it will look more cold, like a shark.

For an MS Paint creature it's very well made! I hope you're problems solve soon, cause that guy looks awesome.

looks pretty cool. I guess if I take my time with MS paint it could work. also, I thought for a second that the upper pair of arms was some wierd kind of jaw but then I saw it is a pair of mantis style arms.

I'm pretty sure ive heard the name 'Graken' somewhere before as well. Sounds like it could have come from metroid or something ;)
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

No your right

In fact there is another race thats a subspecies of Gracken genus called the Kracken which live in the deep undersea caves of Grackmar. They are biding there time waiting to attack the hated Grackens. Also there is another sentient Gracken species called Dracken which are of the Gracken genus. The impact of an asteroid lifted tons of rock into the air. Some rocks went out of orbit and drifted through space until colliding with an obscure planet. The bacteria survived and began to spread and eventually killing off most of the planets residents like a virus. They evolved in similar conditions as the Gracken but more mountainous so evolved into a flying creature.

Here is a cayon called The Umayyad. It is famous for being ancient and the river in some parts being 100s of feet deep. The Grackens used it to transport goods and people. It has also been the site of many battles especially in the Great war and the War Of The Millenium Disk

Have to agree...

Though that is a great drawing.

Yeh I have the second pic as my desktop :D

The Gracken was based off the lictor but nowhere near the personality or hive mind mindset

Far be it from me to deny Tyranids having been there earlier.

But Cthulu has them both beat. Ahem: "I! I! Cthulhu fthagn!"

Pfff. Squid-man is lame. Even if he does have magic powers. If I find Cthulu in spore I will squash him and Laugh! Faugh!

How many people on this board actually play Warhammer 40k?  And for that matter, any of Games Workshop's games?

I myself enjoy a good game of Warhammer Fantasy.
