"We can cross here, off you go Milo. What's that? Oh no... not at all... it's perfectly safe..."

An oft referenced but rarely seen Rogue Trader beast for Paul's ongoing Deathworld/Alien Flora and Fauna project: the carnivorous Rippy-fish brought to life using CP Models fish swarms.

As per Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader p.215:

“The Rippy-fish is a piranha-like aquatic creature with pirahna-like habits.  It comes from the Lost Hope Death World, though many similar creatures exist on other planets.  It is not large, rarely more than 30cm in length, but its uncompromisingly carnivorous appetite and fearless disposition make it deadly.  Rippy-fish form shoals of several hundred creatures.  They can live in salt or fresh water, and are immune to most poisons, extremes of temperature and pollution.”
