At least arthropods have a slight mechanical like aspect to them.
The back is more of a decorative technic slope, not a shooting piece. It is unsightly though.

I agree, when you look at the beasts in the Viking theme you might think those poor Scandinavians are fighting some mechanical invaders from the future or outer space, rather than mythological creatures.
I agree again - arthopods in magnification look slightly mechanical, so perhaps if you want to build a brick beast, an arthropod will be the best choice (although it probably won't be minifig scale, or will just be an abnormally giant creature like the one discussed here).

I've added a couple of dark red arms for a fuller abdomen.
and a black tip to the fixed finger claw
here is a better ventral view
When oo7 mentioned the sentry bot set it sparked an idea to moc a swimming crab with some of that set's pieces...
Let me know if the picture posting is a little "overboard'
or if these kind of mocs are more apropriate in another subforum.

Come to think of it this creation reminds me of Beast Wars...

Coloring dark grey with a red sharpie marker perfectly macthes Lego's dark red, but it is wiped off easily when handled. :(
I was going to place all my crab mocs here, but since a horseshoe crab, even a giant one, wouldn't be much pose much of a threat to pirates, I've placed it here.
