Cretacea: The game of gargantuan survival (Dinosaurs!!!!!)

Recommended Posts

I was little surprised not to find a post about this one:

 

Cretacea: The game of gargantuan survival

 

It is a rule set to play skirmish games with Dinosaurs.

 

Sadly no minis. It is 1:100, but I'm sure it should be possible for 28-32mm, too.

Fight to survive the time of the cretaceous with this unique and fast flowing skirmish rule set, designed to emulate real dinosaurs!

Have to give the creator credit that he took a subject that he was passionate about and developed a game around it.

I don't think a game about dinosaurs fight dinosaurs is really for me, although I have collected quite a few Dino figures that are more or less in scale with 28-32mm minis. (Papo is my preferred goto for large dinos)

I'm more a Weird West/Pulp/Modern (Jurassic Park) meets dinosaurs gone wild kinda guy.

I agree.

Dinosaurs are some of my favorite creatures, but I won't play games with them.

 

About that last remark, take a little look at my Lost World WIP, maybe there's something there you like.

Arthur Charles is a good guy and actually making a go of it as a full-time painter and game designer.  He's the inspiration behind my Granny Grating LOTR project.  He's worth supporting even if only for the PDF.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.

      I backed the first Killer Rabbit Kickstarter and really enjoyed the figures.  A follow up one was just announced by Skull and Crown on Facebook:

      At the very end of the Lost Valley, the bossfight: Clubtail!
       

      A plant eating 4-ton tank armed with a deadly morning star tail, an armoured hide with spikes, -a fantasy version of an Ankylosaur. The clubtail is larger than the fossil record of Ankylosaur supports. Also the spikes are overstated in comparison. A lot.
      At any rate, the Ankylosaur was contemporary with the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Triceratops. All are from what is now North America in the late Cretaceous period, roughly 68 million years ago. It needed that armour.  The question remains: What did it use the club-like tail for? To smesh predators? Rivals? Trees? An impressive display to attract mates? All of the above?
      And the clubtail has spikes. Did I mention the spikes?
       
       

      I detest painting spikes. It takes absolutely ages and I invariably lose patience and botch the job. These look OK for tabletop but do not stand up to close scrutiny at all. At least it is done. Together with the entire Lost Valley Expansion! Woot!
       

      The Clubtail is, in fact, the distant forebearer of the modern day Dragon Tortoise aka Koopa.
       
       
      I made it a 125mm x 100mm base.
