Guys,

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

Seems like it could inspire some funny skirmish games.

Need rules for psychic mutant hillbilly abductees…
and some sort of countdown/turn-limit to when the mothership shows up.

I'm going to make civilians for the Planet 15 line, some basic dollies then will add various different hairdos and clothing. First models will be late 50s/early 60s teens at the beach. grin Also a sheriff. Then the teens will get various clothing and hair mods for different periods. Then adults.

First ones will prob be:

Young hero in trunks (think Steve McQueen in the Blob)
Young heroine in modest one piece (ditto, Aneta Corsaut)
Good guy Sheriff (lieutenant Dave from same movie, in police uniform)
Monster-bait stacked bimbo on bikini

The three civilians will then get a series of clothing and hair swaps. Then more will be added (children, generic adults, etc)

No plans for hilbillies just yet, but if these sell I'll keep expanding them, as always.

All this having been said, they are not next on the queue. But Planet 15 needs women for the Aliens to menace, and spunky earthling males to best them, so they WILL be made.

The West End Games boardgame Bug-Eyed Monsters could provide an interesting scenario for aliens-versus-humans gaming. It's practically a wargame, since the counters represent individual characters.

The aliens want our women, and the humans are oblivious to the invasion until the aliens are spotted and the alarm is raised. There's an alternative scenario in which Eisenhower is stumping through the area. So additional units are added: Secret Service and State Troopers.

Even though the box cover shows slavering BEMs, you could easily substitute Greys or other aliens (although it's odd to imagine the Greys with a status of "Lust-crazed").

Some details on the game here:

More details in the review linked on that page.

Monster-bait stacked bimbo on bikini

I like. Better than her being in the bikini.

Guys . . .

What's really the prime target of most documented alien contacts and abductions, if not . . . rural folk?

And they just love our cattle too:

We all know that aliens don't visit else, particularly heads of state and other important folk.

PS. So, if you want to do something that makes lots of sense, and will make games an absolute riot, somebody better start making 15mm rednecks, farmers and hillbillies.

If someone out there wants to give it a go in 15mm, well, here ya go fellas . . .

This is what your first 4 sculpts should be modeled after:

Those are the 4 main characters in "Altered".

However, IF you guys want to sculpt more traditional redneck-farmer-hicks-hillbillies, then here are some additional suggestions:

I had no clue there was a comic named 'Alien Pig Farm'… I've been out of the loop for too long.

I was just about to suggest that there were no bikini, or short-shorts clad women in those suggestions.

Thankfully, you have recovered nicely from those omissions.

Hope I made you proud, Top Gun Ace! :)
