But they would make for cool miniatures (for 28mm, 15mm or both), particularly if it's something like this little "goblin" fella:

Don't you think?

PS. I think that what visited those people were really Gremlins:

Well judging from the second link and the picture of the guys telling the story..I'm thinking someone was tippling the white lightn'n a bit too much that night….

But you'll need a few figures of Kentuckian natives to go with the little alien "goblins":

They look like Chupacabras.

Any monkey test facilities in the area?

CPT Jake Inactive Member06 Oct 2009 4:26 p.m. PST

Here are some Kentuckinas for you:

For those gaming 28mm figures, would these 15mm Greys work?

rebelminis.com/15algru.html

I guess all you'd need to do is add some ears and, presto, you've got yourself some Kelly-Hopkinsville Goblins to shoot!

For gaming in 15mm, I have absolutely no idea.

Yeah … I've heard about this story on TV a number of times … I was stationed in Kentucky, when I was in the Army … I think there was some "shine" involved … evil grin

JRacel Inactive Member06 Oct 2009 5:21 p.m. PST

Some of us are from Kentucky CPT Jake and we clean up a little better than those fellas in you image . . . . . well, most of the time, sometimes, well at least we like to think we do . . . . ah, screw it . . . .

I can't believe you haven't come across those before CC! They're a UFO classic.

Lord Hypnogogue Inactive Member06 Oct 2009 5:24 p.m. PST

Careful now….

GarnhamGhast06 Oct 2009 5:24 p.m. PST

Btw CC you should do a little google-fu on bigfoot sightings in connection with UFO's, that's when it starts to get really weird!

Lol where do you find all those wonderful pictures? You're a treasure on here CC grin I've been trawling around looking for odd stuff but I'm too tired, it's 2.32 /AM here so I'll pick this up later today after some sleep!

Well, here's the original newspaper story:

Billy Ray and Lucky. Durned if these names simply HAVE to fit in with a tabletop adventure, somehow.

Looks like he was trying to surrender!

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP07 Oct 2009 9:24 a.m. PST

ComradeCommissar,

That's what I was thinking when I saw the pics.

LOL. Maybe we were just about to get the solution to all our energy and medical problems, and a few trigger-happy hill farmers ruined it for all of us!

GarnhamGhast07 Oct 2009 10:40 a.m. PST

Well they sure picked a bad place to pull their first contact, didn't they :) No wonder they started knocking people out, abducting them and blanking their memories!

Pyrate Captain07 Oct 2009 4:26 p.m. PST

Good thing for the owls that the residents of the farm, located north of Hopkinsville, had consumed sufficient quantities of whatever it was, that all they could hit was the window screen.

I can believe a lot, but not this one.

DAWGIE Inactive Member08 Oct 2009 7:45 a.m. PST

OMG!


this is too good to pass up! why bother staying with the alleged facts of the encounter?

set the event further back in time, the 1920s or 1930s, and use the leads to represent the "poe backwoods hillbillys" in the encounter.

and then use these for the damned prying revenuers:

and some where, i do not remember where, are some very nice campaign hat wearing STATE POLICE that would work well for the above scenario, too.

Dawgie,

When I first heard about it I thought . . . "here's a gaming idea".

Terrain would be relatively easy, I think.

* Log house
* Trees and shrubs (lots and lots)
* Shed
* Truck
* Outhouse
* Log pile
* Chicken coop

Am I missing anything?

CC

Legion 408 Oct 2009 9:55 p.m. PST

A Still … evil grin

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP08 Oct 2009 10:25 p.m. PST

LOL! How could I have forgotten such a vital piece of the puzzle. Thanks.

Perfect. Anything else for terrain/scenics?

OK. Remember these pictures from the first post?

Well, this little "Chupacabra" looks a little like it:

So that's where Chupacabras came from . . . Kentucky!!!

wow, this "encounter" (probably hallucinations) happened like 10 minutes from my house. cool.

What some people will do to a picture of a new-born opossum.

Guys,

The 2006 film "Altered" has some interesting encounters between rednecks and aliens:

Best line in this thread so far:

"Why bother staying with the alleged facts?"

'Nuff said.

P.S.: I am all for all of this.

More stories from moonshine country . . .

Moonshine will be the ultimate cause for the extinction of barn owls.

This would be cool, perhaps at 10 or 12mm high:

A barn.

What else are you going to hide your UFO, or alien band in, or behind?

Pyrate Captain11 Oct 2010 11:37 a.m. PST

I wondered what happened to this post.

Experiment 626 does indeed look a lot like the Hopkinsville Goblins:

Dont forget that ufo,sasquatch sitings are also associated with the upper NY druid stone works and theire mystical shadow figures in the forest.

Top Gun Ace Inactive Member18 Oct 2010 12:05 a.m. PST

Oh, a picnic table out back too. Almost everyone has one of those.

A doughboy pool too, if they don't have a fishing pond. It can double as a watering trough for the animals also.

Pyrate Captain18 Oct 2010 10:10 a.m. PST

Barn owls, shotguns and Mary Jane!

SirFjodin Inactive Member19 Oct 2010 1:44 a.m. PST

DAMN! I've finishet and then destroyed sculpt! I was unsatisfied with result! I've started fro the beginning :(

I would really LOVE to see someone produce a few 15mm poses (three would be great) of these guys:

OK Dan (and others),

I am working in Metropolis, IL., a relatively short distance from Hopkinsville, KY. I am prepared to conduct field research for any and all gamers interested in this scenario. Just tell me what you want me to find out about this case. I am willing to go to the scene and find whatever I can of an incident that happened when I was about 5 months old.

PC.

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP24 Jan 2011 10:08 p.m. PST

PC,

That is just too cool!

I'm sure that there must be all kinds of space goblin souvenirs at their local stores. Can't wait to see what you find.

Dan

Pyrate Captain25 Jan 2011 6:48 p.m. PST

I'll let you know.

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP28 Feb 2011 9:48 a.m. PST

I would love to make a log cabin suitable for this crazy UFO scenario and for other strange stuff:

Suggestions appreciated.

Well, according to the show "Destination Truth", it looks like those gremlin-like creatures are also showing up in the jungles of Peru and Brazil, and called "Chullachaqui":

Pyrate Captain23 Jun 2011 8:01 p.m. PST

I still haven't got there. It's only about 100 miles away, but this summer for sure.

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP30 Nov 2011 2:34 p.m. PST

My revised list:

* Log house or wood plank cabin
* Trees and shrubs (lots and lots)
* Shed
* Truck
* Outhouse
* Log pile and trash burning pile
* Chicken coop
* A still
* Three or four hills
* A handful of hill folk with shotguns and other weapons, plus a spunky granny and a couple of "farmer's daughters"
* A couple dozen Greys from Rebel Minis
* A small UFO on the ground, getting repaired
* Maybe a small field with a crop circle near the landing site
* A 2 x 4 foot MDF board with grass mat glued on top

Something like this, perhaps:

But the still is a must!

Do you guys think I'm missing anything?
