Soldiers of the Northern Reclamation on a smoke break. They are in full combat uniform to impress the locals of the village they have arrived in, despite the heat and discomfort.

The primary weapon, a high powered rifle, is supplemented by a small-caliber sidearm mounted above the head and fired using the mouth.

For a long and stupid moment, I legitimately thought that one the birrin soldiers was sipping out of a juice box instead of lighting an alien cigarette ;D;

Smoking makes you look cool. Or at least that's what 100% soldiers, no matter the planet or species, seem to think.

Man... guard duty study sucks, doesn't matter what world you are from...

ooh this is really cool!!! one question tho- why do birrin lose their fuzz as they age? i think you said babies had it to protect themselves from parasites, but why would that stop being beneficial? do the parasites only feed on babies?

This mention of the Northern Reclamation has me interested in Birrin geopolitics. I'd love to see a map of all the countries on their world. Should we expect to ever see something along these lines?

Definitely not!

what if they stand on their hands and the front legs?

Can these guys climb anything?

Very carefully. No where near as good as humans

tootbender's avatar

But, I imagine they are much faster runners than we are?

(And Thank you for replying to my comment.)

Medic: Another four in for whiplash?! Fix the rifle overheating problem already!

Commander: Look, it's like a billion degrees out there. Just get them a neck brace.

Birrin necks are far stronger than human necks. Combined with the low caliber its barely noticeable to fire.

While I love your arts and depiction of an alien species, I fail to imagine a head-mounted fun above the head for the same reason as human.

That said their neck look much more robust (what with the big carnivore mouth) and their less flexible/agile body might make it work it for such specie. It look easier to aim than their main weapon.

The neck is indeed FAR more powerful than a humans. A small gun is no problem for them.
