Palaeo Diet (Ornithomimus)
« on: November 21, 2017, 12:30:52 PM »
During my visit of Lucca Comics & Games 2017, I tried two demos of the skirmish game "Palaeo Diet" done by Ganesha Games.
I liked it and bought the rulebook and some copplestone casting cavemen.

Palaeo Diet: Eat or be Eaten is a stand-alone set of gaming rules for recreating prehistoric animal hunts on your table top.
Designed with solo and multiplayer games in mind, players take on the role of the hunting party while an integral response mechanism means that beasts react in different ways in different situations.

I'm painting 6 hunters, here the first two: Grug (male) and Hugga (female)
I was not sure about the paint scheme of these cavemen, then I get ispired by "The Croods" from the Dreamworks Animation.

The last two cavemen are ready, now the family is complete. But I could consider to include the grandmather Gran too, if I find the right miniature. Here Sandy and her brother Thunk and a picture of the cave family.

Nice paintjobs, flesh tones in particular. As for a "grandmother" mini: Sycorax the Witch by Steve Saleh, sold by Gorgon Miniatures (LINK), could fit the bill.

Ah, that's her, she sprang to mind straight way but I couldn't think of the maker.

I was thinking about the Reaper Miniatures Caveman Pack too:

The witch is available in UK/Europe too?

You have made a really good job of these figures, do you have the animals already painted for the game or are they the next post?
If so I'm looking forward to seeing them.

I' ve yet two regular lions, two regular hyenas, a panther and a dire wolf to paint (or repaint).
However I'm painting a big plastic T-Rex that I will like to use as an Apex Predator with bulk 6 (usually the bulk is 3 for these aggressive predators in Palaeo Diet).
I like the idea of using dinosaur in Palaeo Diet, I'm planning to buy some prehistoric mammals too.

I don't have the rules yet - they are on my Christmas list ;D but I thought dinosaurs would work as well and I have some painted for some strange reason, probably because they were from a pound shop and were fun to paint.

Looking forward to seeing more and hopefully you will post your games here as I enjoy the ones you do on the pulp board.
Cheers

Yes, from Gorgon Studios. :D No European distributor though.

Just a reminder not to go too far astray with this [on the Ancients board where this thread was started]. Copplestone's cavemen and "The Croods" are stretching historicity already. If you must use dinosaurs, your project would rather qualify for Pulp or Fantasy adventures. Your call. :)

[EDIT] Thread moved as requested.
