Detailed herein is the endevour of Dr. The Viking and Jonas (and anyone else who feels like joining!!!) to complete an actual sci-fi project and game with it. Using rules!

It is not everyday that a project like this just happens upon you, but a small opening in the space time continuum presented itself when by chance Dr. The Viking was sent a package containing 50 odd sci-fi troopers on the same day as Jonas bought a Guldkorn dinosaur!!!

Now as the old adage goes 'Old rust never burns' and that has never been more true than here.


The setting:

The world is dead. Nuclear weapons, plague, zombies, CO2 emissions, O2 remissions, computer software updates, Windows 6000, ginormeous solar storms and religious squabbles have ended it.

Yet as Ian Malcolm of Jurassic Park fame once put it - Life finds a way. Or as the more pessimistic lot have put it 'an umpteenth of us failed to die.'

Where once mammals and especially Man ruled the Earth, they now fight for their slot on the evolutionary ladder against anthropomorphic animals and the awesome behemoths known to 19th century palaeontologists as Dinosaurs!

Herds of giant insects, radioactive geckos, un-deactivated military robots, wild men, mutants, even bigger dinosaurs, radioactive slag and undetonated nuclear weapons is making life even more enjoyable to the children of Abel.

Not everything is bad though. A powerful new energy source - The purple rainbow crystal - has emerged from the cavities of Mother Earth. By force feeding the dinosaurs with this crystal Mankind has learned to harness and strengthen the dinosaurs taking them to even more powerful levels!

One might wonder what would happen if the crystal were to be given to other species. Mankind is investigating but tests have so far only shown that it leads to severe erectile dysfunction and reversal of the brain! None of which makes for better fighting indiviuals.

Without the aid of labs, books, computers or even a basic conceptual understanding of science there is little to be done about the issue so far though.

And thus it is in this dire world of post apocalyptic dinosaur mayhem that wars are fought today!


To detail the project in short:

Each participant will build a force containing, but not limited to, the following in compliance with the setting canon:

~30 foot troopers
~5 dinosaurs
Some leaders and perhaps a few specials
2,5 pieces of terrain (roughly 8''x8'')

My force will be composed of the following (that happened upon me!):


Ramshackle troopers, dinosaurs and a few specials.. oh and I got to use some of the 100 hex bases I just ordered for no reason whatsoever.

Great stuff!

My forces will mainly consist of Acheson Saurians and will be joined by plastic dinosaurs and vehcles constructed from cardboard boxes, shampoo bottles, styrofoam balls and whatever garbage I will have to my disposal.

Here is the first WIP shot of my forces:



When the dinosaurs was ressurected the collective subconsious mindpower of the all earths lizards and reptiles was raised to such a level that iguanas and the likes was as smart (or stupid) as mankind and some rose on their hind legs and started using weapons of MASS destruction.

Really looking forward to following this through its infancy to completion.

I might have some Robot Dinos somewhere or maybe some Dinobot Transformers.

sounds like you guys need eurekas dino nazis.

Hehe, yeah well, I think for me this will also be a project about building stuff from crap myself and not buying more crap.

I think I will go for dinoriders inspiration in fitting the dinoes.

A friend built this cyraffe once and I think it's a good example of where I'm going to go.

The cyraffe is great, but I am not sure I can get myself to molest my dinos like that  ;D

Oh well! I don't have that kind of concerns. I will killify my dinos to death if I have to.

But maybe not all of them. They'll all have guns mounted though I think.

You what!?  lol

No plans of going ballistic on the colours here. Rather I'm going for post apocalyptic flavour of the moth. I think grey with a chuck of red stripes on it. Maybe... who knows!

Seems I have a couple of hours worth of cleaning to do before any such fantasies can come to fruition.


Oh, and I'd like ideas for the rain bow crytals. We do of course have the lot of crystals we did once. Maybe just call it 'purple rainbow crystals' and be done with it.  :D

Purple crystals will probably do good to start off and we can always find more crystals as we go along. Maybe different crystals give different kind of powers and some might be more rare than others?

Purple could be the most common for now  :)

Yeah, we could make som black rainbow crystals later on. For ultimate power!


EDIT: Argh! Already on page two of this and nobody's even looked at a brush yet!  lol
