Badger badger badger badger...

Okay, next step in my game world creation.... creating the massive enemy invasion force that was step two in destroying the old kingdom. 


I took a look at Orcs, the classic fantasy race, and when you get right down to it, they're boars evolved into "people".  They still have tusks and a small snout, but otherwise have hands and feet like we do, etc.  Since I may publish within' this world later, I want to do as many things as possible as original material, so I wanted to make a new race, but for play purposes convert it to 3e rules.  Now this is a race which long ago ran the dwarves out of their underground homes.  In the current game, Dwarves and humans live and work side by side, all aboveground.  This race has now spilled from the caverns and come aboveground.  Anyway, those of you who have been reading know the rest of the story....

on to the point. 
I want to create this race to be badgers evolved into humans.  Badgers are a member of the weasel family (i believe), so they specialize in hunting things in tunnels.  They are somewhat tough and hardy, but also nimble, so maybe a constitution and dexterity bonus, with a strength and charisma penalty?  They are obviously going to have darkvision. 

I not only want to know rules however, but appearance.  I don't want transmogrified teenage mutant ninja weasels, but rather a race that is fully evolved.  So what animal features remain?  I just can't get a picture in my head of what these folks look like as a race.... 

So any ideas?

edit: upon wikipedia research, yes it seems str and Con are the attributes to use.

I also discovered they were believed to spread TB. This could help cull their population when I need it to..... interesting.
