He's about to Optic Blast the drone away. Ah, yes, that's a ranged unit when upgraded.

Wow, it's really hard to see it's eye. I had to stick my nose on the ecreen to see it. Actually, it looks like it has a helmet on.

Egad, all these glamour shots of barb units. I'm not sure which is more sexy for a pin up, the yeti or this one.

Good grief, I feel like a nasty visual-critic these days

The "Mouth of Sauron"...on the poor critter!? and that's it.<sigh>
