Giving them cat noses (and fur in their faces as well) certainly pushes the Freyjans from humans with cat traits into cats with human traits - if that makes sense?
Both can work well imo, but at least with their current looks they don't get mistaken for ewoks I guess...
Now they remind me of Thundercats instead - which is a very good thing.

I'm gonna go ahead and say I like them as is :)

Had SPM released them like your example though, I would have fully accepted them.

Most models of SDE not even have noses anyway, just a protuberance...

How about play fair and post pics of that Hellcat sculpt from the very same campaign as well Neph, coz that makes my cats vomit look like a better miniature, its sooo horrid it doesnt even look like a cat (the hellcats, not this one).

Agree with you. Hellcats is awfull, but I'm pointed one good example. A simple inverse triangle nose like Thundercats can do the job to make better a cat face for Freyjan. If I make sugestions is because I still care about the game and the company . nothing more natural than a consumer make suggestions to improve the product. Any decent company expect feedback and not a simple blind and brainless fanatism. This topic don't have intention to begin a competition SPM vs CMoN. You have to admit about the fact of lack of cat nose for Freyjan race is weird.


AQ intends to make caricatures rather than look cute, but this cat is an exception.

I'm the spider guy remember... Nothing wrong with voicing opinions - au contraire! :)

But I wonder what the deal is even supposed to be with the Freyjans...
To what degree are they even cats?

If you look at this beautifully painted Nyan Nyan by Orochi it's clear that she has human ears and the cat's ears are just a part of her suit.
Is the tail even real? How about the other Freyjans? Do they all just wear fake ears and tails? That certainly would be a clue to why they don't have more cat-like faces!
Iirc the lore in the Explorer's Handbook just describes them as a feline race - whatever that means. Nothing specific about their anatomy.

Also there's this... We are on a 1 on the furry chart:

well 3 of the 4 we've seen so far seem to have ears poking through a hood in their artwork.

maybe Nyan-nyan isn't a biological Freyjan just a human kid that was raised as one.

But we can't know if they are real or fake just because they poke through a hole in a piece of fabric.

Good theory on Nyan Nyan being adopted though :)

For me the look of the Freyjan race is ok.
If you check, most of the Anime with "cat people", you have a human face with cat ears and tail.

They're definitely meant to be stereotypical anime-esque catgirls and not cat people as is evident by all the art of them.

I think Nyan Nyan's design is weird because she predates Freyjan being a major race in the lore and they hadn't secured the foundations of them anatomically.

Nyan being adopted is a solid in-game theory.

And this is a probable real-life theory.

of course freyjan are human with cat tooth and a cat's eye and tale that's all. And they are pretty like that.

As I recall, wasn't Nyan Nyan a human in 1st edition? I mean, she's got a cat costume, and now she's 'passing' as a Freyjan.
