PALAEO DIET PULP Battle Report: To Kill a King

Today I played my first Solo game with the expansion of Palaeo Diet: Pulp.
The scenario is "To kill a king". The adventurers must kill the king carnivore and at least one member of the party must survive at the end of turn 12.

Year 1508, Somewhere in the Caribbean.
The governor of Hispaniola has taken much interest in the so-called Mysterious Lost Island of Dragons, newly discovered by an intrepid new Conquistador: Cesare Borgia. On his istructions, specimen of most of the larger creatures on the island have already been shot for taxidermy and exhibit. However, one notable beast remains unacquired; the king of the island, a mighty dragon. The party of Cesare Borgia have one morning left on the island before their ship must sail. There is time to go hunting one last time.

 Overview of the board:

The great herbivore

The King Carnivore

The Raptors

The Adventurers/Hunter "Conquistatori" (italian word for Conquistadores) of Cesare Borgia

Cesare and his companions move cautiously and silently towards their prey.

Cesare lead with caution his companions and through gestures order them to be ready to attack

The hunting begin. The Arquebusier and Crossbowman aim to the Dragon and shoot, wounding him.
The furious Dragon charge the hunters, seriously injuring the Halberdier, now he is KO.

The Hunters continue to shoot to the wounded Dragon,  frightened by the sound of gunfire, he try to flee but one last shoot from the Arquebusier kill him.
Cesare: "The beast is ours! Do not let him flee!"

Cesare and his companions admire satisfied their trohpy.
Cesare: "Well done, men. The governor of Hispaniola will be pleased and will reward us properly."

Falconetto Cannon for Borgia's "Conquistatori"

More minions for Cesare Borgia: a Falconetto cannon with artillery crew, another alberdier, arquibusier and crossbowman.

The "Conquistatori" are growing, he a group shot. Next I will paint Cesare Borgia on Raptor.

Cesare Borgia

I painted the miniature I will use as an alternative fantasy Cesare Borgia. He will lead his group of reinassance (1507-1530) italian "Conquistatori" (Conquistadores) to pulp adventures in Central America. I painted him with the supposed uniform colors (red and yellow) used by Borgia during their late campaigns.

"Sierra Gordo" Guerrillas

Here a group of generic Cold War central american Guerrillas, maybe from "Sierra Gordo" a fictional country from the gi joe marvel comics. I will use them for my gi joe SOLO games, using Pulp Alley rules.

Cold War Central America Guerrillas

Here three Cold War (1982-1988) Central America Guerrillas. They should be the command group of a small force of about 9-15 Guerrillas (next I will paint six guerrilla soldiers), they should be allies or enemies of the gi joes or cobra in my pulp games.

TRANSFORMERS G1: Insecticon Clones

I found on the net some free 3d print designs of Insecticon clones, then I commissioned the 3d print to a friend and painted them. I will include a 30mm round base as the other Transformers (I ordered the bases). I should commision 3-6 more of these clones and they will be fine as cannon fodder of the insecticons for play with Pulp Alley and Bot War.
