weird idea... any interest in this:

Post by Dropbear » Fri Jan 30, 2009 6:10 pm

I am blaming it on the ridiculous heat down here in Victoria (a lovely 45 in the shade at my place today) for this idea, but it has rather taken my fancy (the saucy thing!), and I am willing to bet I am the only one interested in this, but:

28mm scale Australian Animals with modern day weapons:

Kangaroo with F-88 (Steyr)
Wombat with M-79 (wombat gun - for humor purposes)
Platypus with F-88/GLA (grenade launcher)
Tasmanian Devil with anti-armour weapon
Dingo with M60 and crossed ammo belts

and so on.

The animals wouldn't have any uniform or helmets etc: just animals with weapons, with except bandana type thing.

Maybe animals from other countries with the weapons particular to that nation for opponents.

i.e. a Badger with an SA-80

They took our 105mm howitzers away from us and gave us mortars instead :cry:

Not kidding either.

We dont have to have bandanas.... after all "bandanas, we don't need no stinking bandanas".

If anyone is interested, would they want them in 20 or 28 mm?

Will Wargamer Oz want any? If so, 1/76 :D

I see benefits in each, but would probably prefer 28mm
