Have you thought of other arachnids, like pseudoscorpions or the tailless whip scorpion? Hey look quite cool and a bit alien.




PS alongside the streetbikes, you get the occasional gravbike...
Did you see this brandlin?

So, a sci fi western theme... sort of Firefly mixed with Mos Eisley? With Pitch Black desert mixed with sunny Hadleys Hope outside the limits?

Or with a darker theme like Bladerunner? Mixed with night time Hadleys Hope?

Tech level?.... Alien universe hard science like, or Star Wars Space Opera magic like?

I guess Marshall Bravestar mixed with 2000AD and a touch of the Sean Connery film, Outpost...

Tech level is a mix, cos there's some Alien Tech boosting Human tech beyond what we should have, but it's not fully understood or fully able to be replicated efficiently, eg, plasma cannon

Actually, that is a very accurate description.  Except its a bit more sci-fi cowboy - they go about on four legged robot steeds in an odd kind of pose and they have some kind of quest.  I have to say I lost interest before I could be bothered to find out what the quest is, but 7yo kids seem to love it! Even my girls, which surprised me!

What? Who now?

Please can you provide references, pictures etc for those of us that don't share an interest in your particular niche.


Seriously, though, read Dune - it's a classic and more than deserving of the time it takes to read!

Hmm I read dune so long ago I'd forgot the reference...

Shane Hoyle sculpts (according to foundrys site !!?) 10 for the 5.

Not his best, but I would prefer Andy and Kev to do some figures that are not available.

How about sci fi versions of them... or scifi Kellys Heroes, or Dutchs' team from Predator done with bits of Andys Sci fi trooper armour etc

I'm really behind on the play of things and noticed that the specialist games section is being discontinued! Time to sweep in I guess Andy.
Any chance of a gang of mutants in that lot? Perhaps with a cannon toting lizardman

I wasn't suggesting Andy should make the A-Team, I was suggesting that the back story could be used for deserters... soldiers of fortune, trying to remain un-caught but carrying out daring, mercenary tasks to help people... even though they deserted, they still have a moral code and want to do good stuff rather than just be mercenaries.

Sorry misinterpreted your suggestion.

Andy has some interesting ideas, it needs someone to sit down and write some fluff... rules... do artwork...

I love making rulesets. Quite fun side hobby that doesn't cost me anything. I have made a little bit of headway, a few months ago now, on some dungeon type rules. Wouldn't want to tread on toes though but if anyone is keen on having a look...

Weeeelll... as much as I'd love to do it..... :wink:

Its artwork I think a project will need to get flavour, provide inspiration.. populate a rule book...

IF Andy wants to do it as his second kickstarter.....

If the gangland was a Kickstarter it would be the first ever Kickstarter I would back. Really like the idea of a Kilted gang ala Sla Industries Frothers, combat drug addicted close-combat psychopaths. A Mining/Industrial gang would be great as well like the slaves in the Pitt add on to Fallout 3. Obviosly you need the obligatory gang of mutant dregs , no sci fi game is complete with out them!
