Default Big fuzzy aliens

I was thinking of all the races in 40k the other day, and I thought, what haven't they done yet? The only type of alien left to make would be something big and fuzzy, sort of like a Wookie from Star Wars or a Brute from Halo, maybe even bigfoot. I would start making a codex of sorts, but I don't even have the general 40k rule book, not to mention any codexes (I guess i can still write fluff stuff). So now I just felt like throwing the idea out to everyone. Have fun!

Too late.

It's already been done and these big fuzzy things have been part of the fluff since the rouge trader days.

They're known as the Jokaro, makers of digital weapons and other small miniaturized pieces of technology.

They don't appear to have any actual intelligence, instead they're behave instinctively and just seem to know how to do whatever they have to do that moment.

Physically they look like brightly coloured apes.

Thanks for that Falstead, but I was sort of thinking along the lines of a whole new army. One that is intelligent, and certainly not brightly colored. I've started some sketches but unfourtunatly I have no way of getting them onto the computer, since I, unlike those Jokaro, am lacking a lot of technologies. Oh well.

A few (very basic) unit ideas now, although since I haven't made a name for these guys yet I'll just call them big fuzzy aliens. Ahem:
HQ
Big fuzzy High Shaman - HQ version of shaman
Big fuzzy War Chieftain - A main leader HQ guy. Really big, really fuzzy, and really deadly.
Elites
Big fuzzy Shaman - Would have some sort of powers/ cool staves for weapons. Wears warpaint and cool headdress, maybe.
Big fuzzy Spirit Guard - Very tall, strong, fancy armored bigfoots of death with hand and/or ranged weapons.
Big fuzzy Elder Warrior - Big fuzzy version of a Sergeant/Captain, whatever.
Fast Attack
Big fuzzy Wind Runner - A smaller fuzzy who is a quick scout with light guns to pester the enemy's flanks.
Big fuzzy (something) Rider - A big fuzzy alien on a big fuzzy alien's steed.
Troops
Big fuzzy Clan Warrior - A core army unit with good melee and ranged (but not too good as to be unbeatable).
Big fuzzy.... uh-oh, time for dinner. I'll post more later, unless everybody hates this. feel free to add your own ideas

Predator. They haven't done something like Predator either.

I'm sure of what the hrud are/is, but I was sort of thinking of a general Native American flavor for these guys

They're tall, muscular, and hairy (maybe fuzzy wasn't really the best term to use). They don't wear much armor except shoulder pads, chest plate, and upper leg armor (I forget what that's called). The leaders have helmets of varying fanciness. Blast it, if only I had a scanner I could show you a picture of what my general idea is.... I suppose I could make a picture on Paint.

ok then that sounds cool. i'd love to see even a rough outline of what they are supposed to look like. also if you don't have a scanner you could always see if your local library has one you can use.
