Title: A madman in the wastes - 6/23 Cows and goats and chickens, oh my!
Post by: CookAndrewB on June 06, 2022, 07:03:20 PM
With a little spark of inspiration, I have a new bundle of digitally kitbashed figures for my apocalypse projects. Somewhere in the wastes, there is a mad scientist turning animals into cyborg death machines.

I give you, the Cow-borg... or Cy-Bull... one of each, probably  lol

They come with either simple puddle bases or scenic bases as seen below:

Everything but the grass and leaf litter prints as one piece.

I printed mine out a bit on the large side as I wanted them to be easily recognizable as a heavy unit. If you wanted something more "average cyborg cow" sized you may want to scale it down 10-15%

More critters coming soon.

I'm loving the idea by the way.
Will have to see what toy animals/dinosaurs I have lying around
and try converting.

Or, goats.  ::)

And a final picture showing a 28mm figure for scale (just to ram the point home).

These sculpts are the Greatest Of All Time!

I love these farmyard terrors!  Can't wait to print, paint, and play them!

Glad everyone is liking these. Next up will be the chickens, but I need about a week to get them painted up and ready for their debut.

I submit to you: Consider the backside anal emissions of large herbivores. It's often overlooked as a defensive response.  I developed an expanding template for sauropods (for scenario Nazi's vs Dinosaurs) that blows out the backside of a giant herbivore with wet rubbery sounds. Anyone caught within the sizable template of toxic gas unprepared immediately collapses to the ground. Only a troop with a gas mask can pull the overwhelmed downed screaming and gasping unfortunate figures out of the template. Players are shocked to encounter this phenomenon for the first time. Brings a smile to my face.

Well, now, that is something to consider. It also makes me think that the Cyborg chickens (Chick-borg? Cy-ken?) may lay eggs that hatch into little creepy crawly drones.

Featherless xtra large cyclopean chickens.    With a laser beam that comes out of their one eye!

Well, not featherless, but you nailed the cyclopean aspect! Behold, cyber chickens and robo roosters in all their glory.

Some with spidery legs:

Some with weird accordion legs:

(these are my favorite, but I can see the use for both)

Great work mate, I am sensing an early Gamma World vibe and that is a great thing!

I love them...the mad scientist can go across other periods, too. So, these definitely aren't limited to post-Apoc games!
