This is one of the few creatures that is mentioned in lore, and people will be expecting to see in black marsh. My idea is that it could be a circling, animated static like mr siika made in his Raven and Vulture mods:http://www.tesnexus....le.php?id=23523

Anyway, the description of the beast is as follows:

Jarth's Scotti finds creatures called Hackwings in Black Marsh, "giant birds with long, saw-like beaks nearly the size of the rest of their bodies." A fellow traveler in the novel says of them that "like everything else in this damnable place, they'll eat you if you don't keep moving. Beggars pounce down and give you a nasty chop, and then fly off and come back when you're mostly dead from blood loss."

Obviously the flying attack would be really hard to script, but if they were a flying animated static they could still be a menacing presence hovering over the marshes.

So would anyone be up for drawing a concept of this creature?

Another beast present in Black Marsh is the feathered serpent, which could possibly also fly and be animated in a similar manner...

Y'know, this beast would be really easy to do for TES5 as a modification of the standard dragon swoop attack, based on those early gameplay videos....
