**************

 

Martinez, Fillippa, Tlacaelel and Mitla were discussing the next move.

They were able to understand each other's language pretty well now, and when lost for words, they drew pics or gestured.

It worked fine so far.

 

Martinez had been able to explain that they were a smaller group that needed to catch up with his brother's army.

He told them that the army was heading for the Golden City.

Mitla asked,  why? I have told Fillippa about the Citadel, clearly you people didn't know about the reptilians.

So why would your army march on them?

 

Martinez looked at Fillippa.

Fillippa said, best to be honest about this.

 

We are explorers, and this land is new to us.

But our leader has been here before and he knew of the existence of the Golden City as we call it.

The yellow metal used for the roofs and decoration is very precious to us.

And we believed the city to be abandoned, we wanted to take it for our own.

 

Martinez nodded, glad with the explanation the Sergeant had come up with.

 

Tlacaelel looked at Mitla. The Yellow metal is soft and useless.

If you want it, you can have all you can find.

Fillippa might be the one from the prophecy , but even if he's not, my men believe that he is!

This will give them courage and when we spread the word to other tribes, maybe they will find the courage to fight the reptilians too!

 

Just don't think it will be easy!

There are many different creatures in their armies and the Citadel is only their capitol!

More smaller settlements exists.

And most human tribes have either chosen their side or perished.

There are not many of us left.

 

Tlacaelel looked at Martinez.

 

Maybe with you on our side we have a chance.

The reptilian tribes are united by their believes, if we could eliminate the priests and their hold on the tribes, maybe their alliance would fall apart.

In any case the answer lies in the Citadel.

But even together we are still outnumbered, we need a good plan.

We can't just march up to the city, we will be crushed before we reached it.

 

Martinez shook his head.

My brother's army has a lot of firepower they will be able to defeat the reptilians with ease.

You have seen what our smaller guns can do.

He has big ones!

 

Mitla looked worried.

You say you're trying to catch up with your brother's army?

How long ago did this army entered the Jungle?

And have you heard from them since then?

 

Martinez stared at Mitla, you look worried.

Why?

The army has started their journey 3 moons ago.

We have lost contact after 2 weeks.

Have you heard something about them?

 

Tlacaelel and Mitla exchanged a look.

Speak up!!! Martinez almost shouted...

 

Fillippa calmed him down.

it is his brother,  he apologized to Tlacaelel,

Who nodded, we understand he said.

 

He clapped his hands, a servant came running.

Call Achik!!

The servant ran outside.

 

He returned with a young woman.

 

This is Achik, one of our best scouts, Tlacaelel said.

Now Achik tell us about what happened 3 moons ago.

 

Achik shared her story,

I'm a scout, we are monitoring the reptilian's movement, so we know when to flee or to attack.

 

A few moons ago there was a lot of activity in the Citadel.

The priests had sent out a large army, they even took a monstrous host with them and some of the flying ancient ones.

 

Martinez asked, monstrous host? Flying ancient ones?

Mitla explained, you have seen the frogman and you fought a lizardman, the ancient ones are somehow related to them, these are huge beasts from the dawn of time.

They are bigger than our huts, some are so big they would barely fit inside this village.

And some of those can fly, they are terrible creatures and they do their master's bidding.

Even your "guns" might have little effect on the largest ones.

 

Martinez was shocked, had his brother known about these creatures?

He looked at Achik, please continue.

 

The Horde left the Citadel and went to the West, I had to keep my distance in order not to be discovered,

One day I heard the sound of battle.

The Horde had encountered something else and there were strange sounds like thunder, but the sky was clear.

I couldn't see all, I had hid in a tree and stayed my distance.

But I did see one of the flying ones picking up a human and dropping him from above.

All I could see was that the human had a shiny chest. Like the armor you're wearing she said, pointing at Fillippa's cuirass.

Then all was silent and the horde returned to the citadel.

 

When I investigated the battlefield later, I only found some strange weapons and devices.

I took a few items with me and gave them to Tlacaelel.

 

Fillippa asked, there where no bodies left?

No Achik said, of course not.

The reptilians always take the bodies and the survivors, either for food or as slaves.

 

Martinez trembled, can you show me those items?

Tlacaelel took the lid from a large basket.

In it a helmet in the style of the Imperial Army and a broken pistol.

 

Fillippa slammed his fist on the table.

They were defeated!!!!

NOW WHAT?

 

Martinez stared at the helmet.

He looked at Tlacaelel, they take prisoners right?

They could be alive in the Citadel.

 

Tlacaelel nodded,

Those who survived are slaves now.

 

We must find a way to free them and end this reign of terror!!!, Martinez shouted.

Fillippa stood up, are the weapons still out there?

Achik nodded, I could only carry a little, and we didn't know how to use this, she said pointing at the broken pistol.

 

If the Jungle hasn't claimed them, there might still be some useable guns, maybe even a cannon, Fillippa said.

Maybe we can retrieve as many as possible.

We could teach your warriors how to use them he said to Tlacaelel.

And then we can rescue your brother, Martinez!

 

Martinez looked at the Sergeant, I have to believe my brother is alive!

And if he is, we will get him back.

Let's get the weapons and supplies if we can.

 

And then we must find out where they are held.

 

Tlacaelel nodded, we will do what we can.

We will send scouts to see if it is safe, then we will form a party to retrieve the weapons.

 

Fillippa said to Martinez, not all is lost.

There is still hope.

We may be able to get some of the weapons back and working.

If any of them are alive we will rescue them!

 

Now we must inform the men.

Martinez nodded.

 

He wished his brother had never laid eyes on that cursed golden plaque.

Fantastic work on him!

I really like the color scheme you went with, and the cape/cloak is quite striking.

 

Another fine chapter in the story line, too.

Thx CW !

 

I figured he had slain some kind of colourful Dinosaur to prove his worth as a leader, and now he wears it's skin as a cape.

 

Nice to hear you guys like my story too.

 

More to come soon.

COOL! Game Zone makes some really nice pieces.

I hope you are not disappointed with the 3D piece. I just returned some that were going to be commission work; re,they were just too dreadful to be bothered with. I think the company was Hero Works from Long Island City.

Mine will be from Krentz..through Shapeways. It is a kind of try-out for me.

There a lot of Dinosaurs, Terrorbirds and even Woolly Mammoths, Rhinos and such.

 

But I will only order more if this is a succes.

 

If he is not up to quality, I will cut him up and make a corpse out of him, and then I will have Raptors swarming over him.

 

If he is up to quality, then a little surprise is in order..I have plans :ph34r:

      And another finished miniature from last night, a dimetrodon grandis, sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the 70's in his miniature range "Children of the Night".  
       
      And in my quest to try not to do green and greys, I went a little loopy on the color scheme, so hope it's not too goofy, white, orange and blue.
       

       
      Probably the miniature with which I'm least satisfied in a long history or okay minis, but I guess a little odd experimentation never hurt.  Let me know what you think of the colors!

      I am running a D&D Noble Gala for my Elder Spawns game. 
      Once the party gets rolling the dinosaurs are going to show up. 
       
      These are speedpainted - but as a group, less than 5 hours total. 
      they are color-coded with the eyes matching the colors on base.
