Goodfellas!


Enforcer and Gun Moll 

 Things have been so busy over the last month that I've not had a chance to show off all the Copplestone Gangster figs that Matt has done for me over the last few months. Time to remedy that!

More Enforcers or Bosses
Hoodlums and Gun Molls
More Hoodlums and Gun Molls
Sluggers and Punks
Gun Molls or Civilians
Civilians and Accountants
Cops


Sorry about the lack of terrain...it's all still in boxes in the garage! Hopefully it won't be too long before I can dig some out and actually get a game of Mad Dogs with Guns in!

Philip Hynes' Bear Heads Miniatures Kickstarter

Just in case anyone has missed it, there is another interesting Kickstarter running at the moment. This one is for an eclectic series of minis sculpted by the talented Philip Hynes...ranging from H P Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe to Undead Spartans via a Kirk Douglas Viking and the Frankenstein monster! Check it out here.

The Undead Spartans, in particular, are superb...







...and there is the promise of more figs to come before the end of the Kickstarter, including more Undead Spartans.

The Lost World of Lemuria - Pulp Alley Kickstarter


 Things are finally starting to settle down after the big move. Sadly, I've not had much time for my blog or anyone elses, I'm afraid...but I'm looking forward to catching up on what everyone has been up to and maybe even dig through some boxes and get some games in!

Anyway, I'm sure you have all missed my posts about the latest exciting releases and so with that in mind....



Pulp Alley are doing a Kickstarter for their latest book...The Lost World of Lemuria...along with a variety of card decks and minis. Check it out here! Looks absolutely brilliant. Can't wait to get my hands on this. With the exchange rate being so poor at the moment, though, and the shipping, therefore, being a bit pricey...I may actually wait until Sally 4th and Statuesque Miniatures get it in stock.

Anyway, here are a few pics of some of what's up for grabs...





Gotta love Kickstaters!

Intermission


Moving house this week. And we're going to be without broadband until the end of August beginning of September...it seems calling BT two weeks before the move was leaving things too late. Grrr. So this blog will be taking a little holiday. Back in September!

IPMS Avon Plastic Model and Wargaming Show 2017


Sadly this year I'm not going to my local wargames show, even though it's in my home town...just to much to do as we're (finally!) moving house next week (for the last time)...but I'd recommend it for anyone nearby.

Pulp Agent, Wargames Illustrated's Latest Giants-in-Miniature



I'm back...sort of. Back from a great two weeks in Cornwall but now busy getting everything ready for the big move next week. So things will still be a bit quiet on the blogging front.

I did, however, notice Wargames Illustrated's latest Giants-in-Miniature fig...Pulp Agent Agent Peggleton!

Sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.
                                                Agent Peggleton
Agent Peggleton is a woman in a man’s world – and she’s better than most of them. A veteran of countless special operations during World War Two, she continues to use her prodigious analytical and combat skills to investigate threats to Democracy and overcome the enemies of Freedom. With her cut glass British accent and her classical looks, she’s a devastatingly attractive woman who can be relied upon to use her feminine wiles and combat skills in equal measure. She wields her trusty Thompson submachine gun in her quest for justice. At times, she suffers at the hands of the sexism endemic to the late 1940’s, constantly striving to prove herself.
Lovely fig and one I have already ordered! Agent Carter figs seem to be a bit like buses...you wait for ages and then two come along at once! Ivor Evans (Saturday Mornings blog) will be happy to have another mini for his superb Agent Carter Pulp Alley games!
