Specially one in which the Alien abductors are suddenly facing an abduction experience of their own?

Or maybe some technical difficulties?

So … at what point would you introduce the "twist" into the game?

Closest I came was when the Aliens interfered with an IRA/Black and Tan turf war in 1920.
Flying saucers have little protection vs Lewis guns.

Ha! That must have been a blast just to watch it turn.

I guess they picked the wrong bunch to mess with. :)

The closest I ever got was a game idea where Greys are out harvesting, but happen to land in hillbilly country…

Pro'bly ended up fried in a skillet with some collard greens. Tastes like ‘possum.

Well, if you look at it the right way, that's Poul Anderson's "The High Crusade."

Though something more along the lines of "The Ransom of Red Chief" might be fun. ("I don't care what the regs say, no tracer in this one! I don't ever want to see it again!!")

Damon, Henry Kuttner and CL Moore did some in which the aliens WERE the hillbillies. Leigh Brackett did it once too, but she did it straight, while the Kuttner & Moore clan--the Hogbens--are pretty clearly the country cousins not invited to the Addams Mansion.

Excellent leads! The aliens were the Hillbillies? Lol.

This is the kind of reception I'd expect they would get from rural folk, specially up in the US Midwest, the South and the Appalachians (Hillbillies), and from "Preppers" everywhere. I guess that, should the visitations turn out to be hostile, they are indeed our first like of defense! :)

PS. I wish there was a figure posed just like this Reaper one, but for 15mm:

SBminisguy that link made me sad. Fun stuff but it's gone now. No MegaMiniatures, no Large, or small, Cow herd, moonshiner hillbilly miniatures frown

dragon618 Feb 2018 3:23 p.m. PST

Dan… Dan are you serious?

Believe it or not, I've never seen that movie [Raising Arizona].
If so IMMEDIATELY rent it.

tsofian Sponsoring Member of TMP18 Feb 2018 4:32 p.m. PST

I can't game this. It brings back too many memories

Extrabio1947 Supporting Member of TMP18 Feb 2018 6:19 p.m. PST

Naw, that's just the implants talking.

LOL. Or the Alien parasite in your brain.

I have the Hillbillies set. I plan to make a few alterations here and there at some point, before I paint them up.

I love that clip! Thanks for that.

I have a unit of Greys in my 6mm Sci-fi forces, but have not gamed with them yet …

Those look great! And I really like that flag design too.

Dan
PS. I still don't know how you guys can paint something so tiny. :)

Personal logo miniMo Supporting Member of TMP20 Feb 2018 8:08 p.m. PST

Like the time Cartman got abducted?

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP20 Feb 2018 8:55 p.m. PST

Who?

Dan

Legion 421 Feb 2018 9:34 a.m. PST

Thank Dan ! I'd tell you how I can paint such small models … but it's classified … wink

Cartman, South Park, NSFW video clip:

Pyrate Captain21 Feb 2018 8:42 p.m. PST

Yes, as it happened.

South Park? Lol, pass.

A few years ago there was a group who used "SKANK" rules in a game called Triple Abduction. A politically incorrect game to say the least and involved three alien species. Pics were on the website. I haven't seen it for quite a while.

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP18 Mar 2018 11:24 p.m. PST

Hmm. I remember a website that had something like that. I've looked quite a bit, and I can't find it any longer.

Dan
PS. I haven't a clue where this Grey fella is from, but he looks like he's had a really bad experience with Earthlings.

Yeah … saw it on HBO a few weeks ago … Very X-File-ish. With much more blood and gore just for the sake of it ! huh?

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP18 Apr 2018 9:52 a.m. PST

Yes, don't eat spaghetti while watching it. :)
