Great Spider of Mirkwood by JonHodgson Great Spider of Mirkwood by JonHodgson
2010 Jon Hodgson. Background graphics by Paul Bourne.

Mirkwood Spider for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7.

"Great Spiders display their dreadful heritage much more prominently than the lesser Attercops. They are gigantic in size, sometimes as big as horses or greater, but their soft, flexible bodies enable them to hide in surprisingly narrow passages. While they can always be described as monstrous spider creatures, their features often differ from one individual to another: the number and appearance of their legs and eyes may vary, for instance some are supported by long and thin stalks, others move about on strong and hairy limbs ending in claw- like appendages, some spy from the dark with clustered eyes, and others follow their prey with bulbous, many- windowed eyes. Regardless of the details, Great Spiders are always a terrifying sight."

I like the human-like elements of the face.

Really creepy and evil. I think it would be a perfect Ungoliant instead of her 'lesser' children.
