    Talk to Matt or Ken (Cowman).
    They have rules for the big beastie.

    Here's the link to my rules file - I ran it at Origins three years ago and folks had a grand time. We've also played it in our local group and had a blast with it.

    Here is the link to my album of the Origins game and some pictures of Kong and the base I made for him...

    I think it would be easy to adapt to your gorgeous version of the 8th Wonder of the World, Fox...

    All the best,
    Matt

    I 3D printed a base for my King. The file can be downloaded from Thingiverse.

    That sounds great! Thanks for the link to the map, too, fox!

    My Kong is about 1/144th scale - a biplane fits nicely into his upraised paw...I have an N-scale railroad gal who is blonde wearing a white dress that I am working on to attach to my building top - that is still in progress.

    Keep up the great work!

    All the best,
    Matt

    My goodness, Fox! I love the Kong beating its chest! And the addition of the pterodactyls is splendid, too!

    Very good Fox.

    Just a couple of questions if I may.
    Firstly. How did you produce the dome that Kong is mounted upon?
    Secondly. When I visited the Papo site I could not see any way to purchase the models. How did you manage it please?

    Thank you all :
    Matt: I made the pterodactyls because when we play our first games,
    http://lesnerviens.1fr1.net/t850-wow...to-be-the-king
    I feel that it misses some ennemy's for the pilotes.In the next games ,the player who will play's Kong will be abble to fly with the pterodactyls to.

    Rob: i made the dome wih this
    It's ( don't know the name in english) google traduction shower tray bracket
    take off the screw part , add some plastic card and metallic washers( ?)


    and I found the papo figures in a toy store
    thre's one mutant in hamley's store for example , I suppose you can thind them in other store .
    Anyway you can find them on ebay for less money
