"Palaeo Diet" Battle Report: The Lost World
« on: February 15, 2018, 10:08:47 PM »
Today I played a Solo game with the Palaeo Diet skirmish game. I used dinosaurs instead of the prehistoric mammals available on the rulebook. I received some "work in progress" rules about a future supplement, where it will be available the option to use the dinosaurs (for pulp games) and more details about children, young hunters, old hunters, women and weapons.

Here the Battle report:

Year 10.000 BC (or maybe 1912?) somewhere in a lost valley...

The Croods were on alert, the time for the hunt was nearby, they should find more food than usual, because the young Ryu, Ran and the child Don, joined the tribe.
Grug, the Chieftain of the Tribe and father of Eep, Sandy and Tonco, looked with pride at his sons and his woman Ugga, all were ready for the hunt. He looked with distrust to the young hunter Guy... He never really liked that boy, maybe he was not strong enough to be the worthy mate for her precious daughter...


Overview of the board:


The Ornithomimus (herd grazers) and a pack of Compsognathus (critters with savagery 6+)


A Styracosaurus mother (Giant Grazer with Bulk 6) with two puppies (bulk 2 each)


a pack of Velociraptors (Small big lizards with the new rules)


a Pachycephalosaurus (Herd Grazer with bulk 3)


A Stegosaurus (Giant Grazer with bulk 5)


Momma Dino (Old big lizard with the new rules)


The Croods stealthily move towards their preys.




Ugga and her sons Tonco and Sandy attack the prey. The beast is wounded.
Grug: "Be careful! The beast is strong, do not underestimate him..."


Eep and Guy attack the herd grazers, two are wounded but flees.
Eep: "The food flees!
Guy: "Let's take him!"


Ran kill one of the wounded animals, while Eep chases the fleeing herd grazers.
Ran: "The first kill of the day is mine!"
Guy: "Well done Ran! But be careful to those little critters, they could eat our food!"


the prey of Ugga and her sons stampede, and all of them are woundes, then they choice to ignore the fleeing beast and move towards the herd grazers...
Grug: "The big animal is gone, ignore him and move to find an easier prey..."


The hunters continue to chases the herd grazers, they keep to run away. Meanwhile, Grug and the other continue to move.



The critters seem interested about the dead prey, one of them attack Ugga!
Ugga: "These little voracious things are trying to steal our prey!"
meanwhile the youngers are still chasing the fleeing preys



one of the herd grazers is killed by Guy.
Guy: "More meat for our tribe!"


The critters continue to attack the hunters.
Tonco: "Tonco is tired of these little guys!"


Unlucky, Don is KO during the fight with two critters, but two critters are KO too.
Grug: "Don is wounded! You can rest child, we will continue the hunt for you too..."


The young hunters are chasing the fleeing preys.
Ran: "They could not flee forever!"



The critters try again to attack the hunters, but one is killed by Guy.
Guy: "It's small, but it is still good food, better than nothing..."


Finally, Eep kill another of the fleeing preys, then the Croods will have enough food to eat.
Grug: "Well done, hunters, we will have enough meat for some time... now we can return to our cave to feed an rest..."



meanwhile, some of the voracious critters attack the fleeing wounded lizard.

Yes, very nicely put together table and lovely dinos. The hills and jungle really work well for the Pulp setting.

AWESOME table, thank you very much for sharing!  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

Missed a T-Rex to make things more interesting for the human hunters...   :D

Thanks :)
It was a funny solo game. I avoided the T-Rex because I yet fight her in two other games (with other players, not a solo) and we lost three hunters each time, and the dinosaur still had 1-2 wounds  :-X Then this time I tried to attack easier preys ;) I'm planning to paint some civilized hunters: the atlanteans warriors from Lucid Eye Savage Core, another giant grazer dinosaur, and a T-Rex father with two younger T-Rex. I think I could like the idea to use the T-Rex Family as hunters too ;)

Great idea on the Atlanteans! Add Amazons with their hunting panthers!!!  :-*

As far as I can remember, T-Rex mothers used to hunt with their cubs as the big cats do in modern times, until they were big enough to fend for themselves!  ;)
