Or how about a fleet of Korsars (Pirates)?

Yes. My brain is dreaming up some way to mix the captain and crew of the Nautilus, a Jules Verne creation, with Edgar Rice Burroughs' world Pellucidar.

Is that too crazy an idea? Come on, don't be shy, you can say it. :)

PS. And I have just the 15mm crew for it, from Rebel Minis.

I don't see why not – that electrical charge system plus other weapons could do a lot of damage, and a pleiseosaur is no tougher than any living whale.
Arguably, squid are hardier opponents with no bones to break and a simpler biology, and we know that was a difficult but beatable opponent for the Nautilus. :)

It seems perfectly reasonable and plausible to me.

Lol. You guys are just as crazy as I am!

I love it.

Well, where else do you think Nautilus went after the end of Twenty Thousand Leagues? Pellucidar is a completely reasonable candidate to explain that remarkable vessel's sudden disappearance. laugh

It just sailed due north and ended up in Pellucidar. Everyone knows that NASA and the Soviets have covered up the huge hole up there since Sputnik was sent up.

Depends on which Nautilus.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen version was so over-the-top implausible, yet that IS a version, and it would win hands down.

If Doug McLure and some WWI Germans can take on a plesiosaur, then I'm certain Captain Nemo would have no problem doing the same.

Don't you mean Mosasaur ? Plesiosaur had small heads and long necks and mostly ate fish and squids they could swaller whole. Now a nice big kronosaur would be a fight ! evil grin

Cacique Caribe11 Sep 2017 10:27 p.m. PST

LOL. Good point!

Long necks are good for attacking high up, say, the bridge of one of those subs, and you don't have to model the whole body. ;->=

For beasts without, I'd probably go with a mosasaur. THAT has been close to giving me nightmares.


Cacique Caribe12 Sep 2017 11:33 a.m. PST

Mosasaur, nightmares for sure!

PS. The one in Jurassic World was way bigger than the real ones, of course.
