The Yautja - or as the humans call them: Predators. An alien race from outer space that haunts our world for trophies. There are theories that Earth actually was their place of origin until the entire population of them left it more than 10.000 years ago. Others say they were visitors back then and were worshipped by prehistorical humans who considered them gods. Fact is that they are capable hunters who collect trophies of their most opposing prey. There are several different categories of hunters in their socity...
Warriors are armed with a combination of blades and a so-called telescopic combi-stick. They are melee experts and seek close combat.
Although never seen in any movie, the comic books and novels claim that there are female Warriors too. Yautja society is believed to be a matriarchy with women therefore rather be brain than muscles. Related females form families who settle and breed together while males are sent abroad to live on their own. Fathership means nothing. Male Yautja group to hunt packs and seek glory in trophies and reputation to attract females. It is unknown why females go hunting too - perhaps for sports or for fun...
I was lucky to get one of the rare Kickstarter pledge reward females which can´t be bought. Before that I converted a female fantasy barbarian with parts of some male predators into a female Yautja. This is the one on the right. Regretfully it was brought to my attention later that female Yautja are bigger and stronger than their male mates. If I had known that before, I had chosen a muscular male body and added some breasts instead. Now she is a female youngling who is going to earn herself some respect I say...
Hunters are equipped with blades and plasma guns. Therefore they are able to kill at a distance as well as in melee. They are often accompanied by a pack of hounds to track and hunt down their prey.
Berserkers are the most brutal and fierce of the Predators. They are similarly equipped as the hunters, yet they don´t seek the aid of hounds and prefer the direct kill of their game. The reptilian-looking berserker in the center is also a Kickstarter pledge reward which was luckily obtained by me. The miniature perfectly displays the features of the Super-Predator "Berserker" from the movie Predators, but I decided to make his armour resemble some Egytian influenced appearance. Perhaps it was a gift from human worshippers of that region to one of his ancestors millenia ago.
