|GröFaZ and ET? No thanks!|
Now as it is a fantasy subject there is no reason that Minotaurs couldn't be enlisted in the Heer fighting against a race of Soviet Gnomes. However, I wanted to keep the whole thing a little more believable (if it can be plausible in the slightest!)
|Interesting but over-done.|
It is well known that various German societies and some senior figures were searching for "Vril" or Hyperborean technologies. Indeed the quest for perpetual motion and free energy was still considered attainable at this time.
Some fringe types had decided the Earth was hollow (there are still believers) and that an advanced race lived in a subterranean realm illuminated by a hidden Sun!
Then of course there is the whole "Haunebu" area where the Germans were supposedly cooperating with Aliens to build flying saucers - a crackpot's wet dream!
Anyway the options are pretty simple:
- Alien Tech - Flying discs, rayguns and Antarctic bases.
- Anti-grav research based upon "Die Glocke" style experiments.
- Vril animated machines and creatures.
The Anti-Grav will allow me to field small scout vehicles that hover above the ground. The weaponry will be strictly in-period and I am planning to base this on the Sdkfz 234 series.
The number of vehicles will be very small as they are produced contrary to Hitler's wishes* and manned by the secretive and paranoid "Projekt Ostara" personnel.
Currently I am awaiting the delivery of the basic chassis from Jez at Old Crow. The model I have chosen does not really look too futuristic and with a turret transplant should have a real alternative WWII feel - I just hope the turrets I have in my spares box fit as I have not been able to measure or handle the chassis!
The choice of Vril will also allow me field zombies - Hoorah! - as corpses could easily be reanimated by such an amazing substance!
More to follow - albeit slowly - as vacation season approaches...
*A fact often overlooked by "Weird" enthusiasts is that GröFaZ detested the Occult and the bizarre theories of Himmler and Rosenberg. He was far more interested in weapons specs, troop numbers and production than in the search for an Hyperborean civilisation and magical substances.
