Quoting qrtxian, reply 5I can see the resemblance pretty easily.
How? It's completely different than how Ynrhed Eidden looked in GalCiv 2. Probably a representative of a different Krynn member-race.
They both have the same basic head structure: a ridged, roughly cone-like skull pointing backwards, with a pair of structures jutting out from the sides that have multiple eyes set into them. It's not the same species, but there's clearly a "family resemblance". Which makes sense, since they all evolved on the same planet and humans and Neanderthals have been used as an analogue before.
What's more interesting to me is that it's clearly showing a face, despite that thing about how they always wear encounter suits when dealing with other races. Ynrhed Eidden could conceivably have been a suit, but this guy isn't.
This is all kind of off-topic, though. It might be better to save this thread for discussions about the discount and take pouring over every detail of an image to somewhere else.
