Title: T9A: Vermin Anteaters
Post by: Karak Norn Clansman on July 10, 2018, 08:06:53 PM
Over on the Ninth Age, there is a different homebrew ratman army book brewing: Vermin Anteaters (https://www.the-ninth-age.com/index.php?thread/37011-vermin-anteaters/&pageNo=1).

As a homage to that intuitive image of bipedal anteater-men, here's an African cousin of the anteater family, an aardvark. I hope there's space enough for all manner of mammals-turned-humanoids in this shunned horde of mound-dwellers and anteaters? Dress from Dogon ceremonial warrior attire (you gotta love how less-is-more didn't count back in the day when these styles were developed). Being fantasy, the below concept takes the over-the-top step of turning ceremonial stiltwalking into a tool used by anteater monster hunters, for you need to reach high to slay those big beasties:

Not where I thought Vermin armies would go, but there you go!

The heck with the stilts.  He needs to lengthen the weapon, maybe even get a pike. :icon_wink:

I'm a big fan of the thought of battle stilts.
