Could this be a Nerf? Or a Gundark?

I've had a good look at all those new screens and concept art released by Gamespot, and it occurs to me that I've never seen a Nerf. So, I was wondering if this creature could be a prime candidate. Or could it be a Gondark?

Or is this creature more likely to be a Gondark?

Just speculating.

They both look much too agressive for a nerf I think...

And for a gundark, I think there should be some pics of one...

Gundark
a four-armed anthropoid known for its incredible strength, gundarks were believed to be originally native to the planet Kashyyyk. In addition to their four strong arms, gundarks was also known for their large ears and forbidding face. Gundarks were hunted promarily for sport, although this was banned during the early years of the New Republic. The average gundark stood 1.5 meters tall, and moved about on its two primary arms. Born with these arms and a pair of stubby, single-clawed legs, gundarks grew a second pair of arms during puberty. At this time also, their ears grow substantially, and their strength reaches its maximum point. They are taught to hunt and fight from birth, with the females becoming the hunters of their tribes while the males became the protectors. While not considered intelligent, gundarks have evolved to form and use simple tools and have a fairly complex social structure. According to the Marvel Comics Star Wars series, gundarks was huge quadripeds with long, flexible necks. Their flat heads had two large lobes which contain their ears, and their puckered mouths contain a long tongue. The sticky tongue can be launched outward with incredible force, and was used to capture its prey and draw it toward the gundark's mouth.

Nerf
a pack animal, the nerf was also raised as a source of meat. Originally native to the planet Alderaan, these rangy creatures have curved horns and long fur. Their muscular bodies are lean and supple, and they have a nasty temper. Their long fur mats and tangles easily, creating a mass of hair that colects everything it touches. Thus, the nerf carries a strong odor around with it. The shepherds that raise nerfs - referred to simply as nerf herders - are looked upon as lesser members of society, but when they bring their meat to market they live like kings. The fur of the nerf is often carded into wool, for use in making warm jackets and leggings.

So I guess this is a Nerf and this is a Gundark.

It it's really a nerf, then we have to think about Alderaan being in the game again....

Thanks for the info, Kylilin. I'd be interested to know the source of that information. Is it online, or from a book?

Neither are a Nerf or a Gundark

They're completely new species that were made for SWKnights.




...I think.

oops, silly me, I forgot to put in a bibliography

those excerpts are from The Completely Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia, the site has tons and tons and tons of info on anything you wanted to know about Star Wars...

Accorrding to Galactic Battlegrounds neither looks like a gundark or a nerf. Nerfs a little furry animals that walk on four legs with big tails and horns simmialler to a goats horn. And a gundark looks like a red beast that walks like a monkey and is covered with scales, i think.

Well thats just galactic battlegrounds.

If you want i can post some screenies.
