If so . . .

* What rules are you using?
* What figures?
* What terrain?
* What story background? Time travel? A lost world of some sort?
* Got pics?

Thanks.

Skull Island?

With cowboys? With Pirates? With Victorians? WWI? Interwar?

Dan,

Looks like the new Two Hour rules link will do this for you grin

And before you ask – Blue Moon and Peter Pig have cowboys in 15mm grin

Wasn't Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs a "Boot Hill" scenario from an ancient issue of Dragon Magazine, maybe somewhere in the 30's or 40's? Referring to issue number, not year…

I believe you are thinking of Big Lizzie from an old issue of Space Gamer. Cross-statted for several Western RPGs of that vintage.

CC, on March 31st I'm running a Cowboys vs. Dinosaurs vs. Robots vs. Indians vs. Aliens game. I will be taking lots of pictures.

Savage Worlds rules. Minis include Cowboy Wars, Great Rail Wars, Reaper, Ral Partha and probably some other companies I can't think of.

And I am eagerly anticipating playing in this game!

Hexxenhammer04 Mar 2010 6:17 a.m. PST

I'm painting as fast as I can!

I think the factions will be:
2 groups of dino-rustlers (the pics you've seen), one on raptors and then the Triceratops w/ howdah
1 band of indians on allosaurs
1 posse of lawmen on dinos and steam-walkers
1 mad scientist with his automatons
1 away party of aliens
1 gang of cowboy raptors (not cowboys on raptors)

BTW, sorry I couldn't make it last night. Hope you had fun, and I'm looking forward to the St. Patrick's Day game.

One of my favorite movies as a kid was The Valley of Gwangi:

It was all kinds of awesome.

Seems like a natural to me. Basically the American equivalent of the British Victorian Lost Worlds scenario. And let's not forget that John Carter was a gentleman from Virginia!

I would think that Saurian Safari, Mammalian Mayhem, or any of the other pre-existing rules sets would be just fine.

Or you have the fight between Jubal(?) Sackett and the mammoth in L'Amour's To the Far Blue Mountains."

@Impala, Yes there was a Dragon Magazine adventure for Boot Hill where cowboys had to find the T-rex.

Brian Bronson04 Mar 2010 10:43 a.m. PST

@Impala, the article was in Dragon #46 and titled "This here's Tyrannosaurus Tex"

As a Green Bay Packer fan, my first reaction to the thread title was glee at gaming T-Rex munch on the Dallas Cowboys!

Hey, I will be involved in Hexxenhammers Wild Wild West game. We will be using Showdown and Deadlands Reload.
And yha, last night's game was a blast. We used Showdown for a 1933 Pulp game. We had Nazitionals, Zombies, a movie star (secret agent), Grancho Marks, Keystone Cops, US marines, Elliott Ness and Keystone Cops. The Keystone Cops dispatched my more Zombies than my marines did.

All I remember is that comic and cartoon series Cadillac's and Dinosaurs.

I'm already collecting dinos and iceage beasts, so any cowboys can fight them, but I really want to game "The Good, the Bad, and the Space Demons"

Wildman05 Mar 2010 11:01 a.m. PST

Goodman Games has Broncosaurus Rex.I have not used them yet,
but they fit the Cowboys verus Dinosaurs game.

Didn't you write that one yourself, Bill? Great adventure – I was no-Pa Cartwright the last time I played it, got eaten by pteradactyls.
