The Game of Kings, Wave Five: The Black King-Rook's Pawn by 


The Black King-Rook’s Pawn (The Spawn)
Artist: Simon Sherry
Biography: Danny

You will find them stationed around the pens of the monolith and they are used to maintain the health and well being of the King’s favourite beast.

Crab-like creatures, they are used during times of inactivity as cleaning device for the Monolith, keeping it free of fleas and other parasites.

Initially able to launch a longer-range assault by hurling highly-volatile Monolith dung from their excretion glands, their effectiveness is soon reduced to that of foot soldiers and cannon fodder during battle.

    Glad you dig it guys:

    Mr Nolan – p’raps, good sir, p’raps…
    TBO – thanks :) Queenie will be making her appearance tonight btw.
    Tom – too kind!
    Nick – pretty much, I kind of imagine them as a cross between the Cloverfield parasites and dung beetles (with a dash of crab for good measure ;o))

    Can you train these guys as pets? May be useful for cleaning up the house. That aside, fantastic creation, you have skills Mr Sherry, world domination skills.

  • It’s more than likely that any attempts at domestication would result in unfortunate results, but it you happen to have a steady supply of Bullrock refuse to tempt them with, anything is possible…
