An Ankheg Queen by Caio Monteiro

A while back I talked about how old D&D monsters kept mutating as new artists got a hold of them. The Ankheg was what set me off in old-timer grumpiness, but here’s a new image of the Ankheg I liked. This one is by Caio Monteiro for the Pathfinder campaign, Belkzen, Hold of the Orc Hordes. The queen is pretty cool. I have major issues about the ridiculously large sword weilded by the hero, and the flail he’s swinging so recklessly. And the queen is still not much like the original monster, but I’d use her in my campaign.
