This is some weird concept art.

Maybe artists like Rudaux were inspired by ER Burroughs' "The Monster Men", Or HG Wells' "Island Of Doctor Moreau", or perhaps even by rumors that Stalin was pursuing experiments to produce an army of Ape-Human hybrids. I guess that, with some people, the end really does justify the means.

QUESTION:
Can you imagine Indiana Jones (or Rick O'Connell) coming across a secret Soviet lab deep in some jungle, or one run by some other mad scientists, and coming face to face with some hybrid creation(s)?

A little on the bizarre side.

Cacique Caribe20 Feb 2018 3:06 p.m. PST

Lol. Just "a little"?

Already have those games floating in my brain. The dreaded man-ape project for one.

Just 1930's X-Men and other mutants!

Codsticker20 Feb 2018 10:48 p.m. PST

I want to know who made their clothes.

The strange experiments of the Mi-Go.

Any terrain project related to this topic should include a jungle "House of Pain" for sure!

PS. Though his experiments were not with hybrids, wasn't Dr. Cyclops' lab also in some sort of jungle? Perhaps an opportunity to use figures of vastly different scales in the same game?

You mean like these fine fellows from a "Sumerian tablet?" :)

Lol, yes, but in poses that are less upright, of course. :)

Interesting pic of Burt Lancaster as Moreau and Michael York on the slab.

Cacique Caribe22 Feb 2018 5:42 p.m. PST

It took some effort to find that picture too. :)

Are we not men?

Back to the house of pain. Great stuff.

Just remembered that in South America, Dr. Cyclops had some hardware above ground, but that his lab was underground.

In fact, in some of the scenes it looks like his lab may have been within the ruins of some Inca building.

I've never done a dual level piece of jungle ruin terrain with a lab before. Tempting.

We add the Pulp Figures lab equipment to many settings, arctic, underground and jungle. But we also give our characters ridiculously large crescent wrenches.

Dr. Argent

What pieces are those? Who sells them (got link)? And, most importantly for me, could they work for 15mm?

Dan

Dr Argent25 Feb 2018 11:31 p.m. PST

Pulp Figures. They are 28mm (Actually two-fisted 28mm). All would work, except perhaps the control panel.

UNLESS,you did a Dr Cyclops scenario and the good doctor was 28mm and your heroes were 15mm.
