Post Apocalyptic WW2
« on: October 25, 2012, 08:38:01 PM »
What ive always wanted was PA WW2 minis i know SOTTR but you really dont see any rag tag units much kind of like a Twilight 2000 setting where everyone builds nukes fires on each other and world goes to pot.I guess maybe converting plastics but imagine an America ruined of course and Europe but an American unit with some guys with M1 helmets some with Doughboy helmets some with kepis mix of uniforms stuff like that.
Get there first with the most men,

Twilight:1950?

"We had them on the ropes. That's what the generals said, that's what the newsreels said. The Germans were about to crumble, the Japs were falling back. It would all be over by Christmas. No, honest - I actually heard some general say that. And I wondered why the old top sergent laughed when he heard... But we crossed the Rhine, and all Hell broke loose. London, gone. Paris, gone. New York, San Fran, D.C... Wichita, Kansas - gone. How the hell they reached Kansas, i've never heard, but it went too. Gone in a flash. And they were lucky, too - at least they didn't go like Moscow went. Whatever fury the Dying Reich unleashed on the West, the East got it threefold. Ten years gone and there are places you still don't dare walk, and hope to live."

"So what could we do? Some guys wanted to quit. But we'd come here to wipe a terrible evil from the planet - how could we just stop when they'd showed themselves to be more evil than we'd imagined? So we fought. And the surviviing boffins, the scientists who gathered in the secret enclaves the Reich couldn't reach, or missed, gave us the tools to do the job. Strange weapons, astounding weapons... Terrifying weapons. Stuff you can't imagine - and shouldn't want to. But we had to use 'em - or they'd be used against us. 'Cause the Axis' scientists hid and lived and kept on working too - and they don't hesitate a second when they have a bright, sneaky, evil idea..."
from Mr.Vampire: "It's the paintjob that makes the miniature fight harder not the size."

Some interesting ideas there. I've  thought about using Herberts "48" has a basis for a sort of PA WW2 setting.
