Monsterpocalypse (3)

7:16 AM by , under

Last week I briefly mentioned having a demo game of Monsterpocalypse. Published by Privateer Press, the point of the game is to have your giant monster completely wreck your friend's giant monster. The city you're crushing is just an afterthought, as are the people living there.

The game was taught by my buddy Ryan, who assembled a force of Lords of Chtul led by Cthugrosh backed up by a bunch of little things I would rather have not faced.

I picked the Terrasaurs because they were chubby and made me laugh. I ran Terra Khan and a couple other chubby little dinosaurs.

When the dust finally settled, Terra Khan stood over the busted husk of Cthugrosh.

While I had a good time and REALLY like the models, I don't think I'll be playing the game beyond this demo. There were a few rules mechanics that kept pulling me away from what I really wanted to do, which is punch giant monsters and breathe nuclear fire on unsuspecting cities.

It wasn't a total loss, however. I spent the next hour taking pictures of Ryan's models (and made a stop at ebay to order a few monsters for myself). Without further adieu, here are just a small sampling of the awesome looking figures:
