[PA League] Bana Tribe of Khanysha, cult of Goddess-Queen TALESTRI

Here another Pulp Alley league I painted last year. This league will be often the antagonist (often bot league) of the Baker Expedition, Legio Prometheous and Red Ribbon in the jungle campaign I'm playing.


The tribal women are the guardians of Themiscyra an ancient town hidden in a forgotten valley deep in the jungle of central africa (congo-south sudan). The hidden town is ruled from thousand of years from the mysterious green skinned Goddess-Queen Talestri. In thousands of years, no intruders could violate the hidden town, the few that could break the first defense of the tribal women were all destroyed by the great powers of the Queen-Goddess or by her Cyclops: GORT.
From the beginning of the colonial age, protecting the secret town is harder than in the past, few european explorers and adventurers approached the town, but all vanished in the jungle. Now, rumors from the natives about the ancient town of Themiscyra and her Queen-Goddess Talestri have reached the ears of some europeans, that consider the voices not simple legends and want to investigate... for archaeological purposes, desire of adventure or lust for powerful artifacts...

PULP ALLEY Battle Report: Free BAGI

Here a Pulp Alley Solo game I played last year (three hours of play, 7 turns played)

Somewhere in central africa, 193X
From an hidden laboratory, an evil and mad scientist, working for the Red Ribbon Army, created some bestial hybrids, using animal and human DNA.
Some of the creatures free themselves and try to flee in the jungle.
The Commander Red ordered that Blue Korp must capture the monsters, especially the most dangerous: Bagi.

I played a modified scenario of "Death Trap". Bagi, the Terror league, was the major plot point. The Blue Korp (bot league) MUST capture her.
The other minor plots are three hybrids and a belgian hunter that was sleeping in his house, a witness.
All the minor plots are extreme perils (including the human, he have a gun)

The leagues were:

Terror (me): the Pink Panther BAGI

[PA League] LEGIO PROMETHEUS Gabinetto RS/33

Here my third PA league I've painted last year.

It's a 193X Weird Wars league of italians, to search for unknown and mysterious artifacts from alien, occult or ancient origin.

The GABINETTO Ricerche Speciali anno 1933 (Cabinet Special Researches 1933 year), in charge of collecting, investigating and suppressing UFO data, was founded in 1933 on orders from Il Duce Mussolini, after a crashed disc aircraft of unknown origin was recovered from Lombardia. Gabinetto RS/33 have links with the Fascist secret police OVRA and with "Agenzia Stefani," the regime's news agency in charge of disseminating Fascist propaganda. Italys most famous scientist and inventor, Guglielmo Marconi, is the director of the Cabinet, which also include several other prominent Italian astronomers, scientists and aeronautical engineers. Marconi believe that alien life existe on Mars and that contact with the “Martians” would be possible from powerful radio transmissions. Some of the most important researches are about the Death Ray, flying saucers, flying Wing and first Jet aicraft Campini-Caproni C.C.2.
One of the best field agents of Gabinetto RS/33 is the loyal ex "Moschettiere del Duce" Benito Littorio Volpe that formed a special team the LEGIO PROMETHEUS in 1937, the same year when suddendly Marconi died.

more informations here:

I enjoyed to do some research about italian interwar secret weapons. I was sure that Italy had some urban legends too, and Gabinetto RS/33 seem an excellent base for any weird wars ideas. There are many strange secrets in Italy, not just from alien or secret weapons, but from occult or mysterious sources too.

here some informations about italian secret weapons:

Captain Dante Littorio Volpe nickname "Capitan Littorio" and his bodyguard of paratroopers with power armor, painted with the paint scheme of the elite italian paratroopers in Africa:

Capitan Littorio and his sidekick lieutenant Giulietta Bellucci nickname "Belladonna"
 Sergeant Galeazzo Musolesi
 I used an Artizan miniature, including a new helmet and a little conversion on the jacket.
He is based on the character of Galeazzo Musolesi, from the italian "Sturmtruppen" comic
