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!

All Quiet on the Western Front


Things have been a bit quiet here recently as we get ready to move house...but just before we do we're off to sunny Cornwall for our Summer hols! So it really will be quiet here for the next couple of weeks. Back in August!

Dracula's America: Shadows of the West...Nickstarter Live!


North Star's Dracula's America: Shadows of the West Nickstarter officially goes live on Monday but for those of us who have joined the Dracula's America: Shadows of the West Player's Page on Facebook the page is already live!! If you can't wait, just head on over to the Facebook page here and join up!

There are early bird deals until Wednesday when prices will go up...and there is lots to choose from. If you want all of it then the early bird price is £118 for the lot! Otherwise a book and posse combo will set you back anything from £31.90 to £48.60 depending on the posse and the figures included.


You can also buy all of the figures individually including many from the Artizan Wild West range as well as assorted other figures from a few other ranges...most of which are not normally available individually.

You can apparently play the game as straight Wild West or include the Weird West elements from the book. The posses (each made up of around 10 figs) are Twilight Order (Templars/Monster Hunters), Red Hand Coven (Vampires), Skinwalkers (Indian Shapeshifters), Crossroads Cult (Demon Worshippers), Congregation (Voodoo) and Dark Confederate (Zombie). There is also a further book in the works, Hunting Grounds (due out in Jan 2018), which adds The Forsaken (Cursed 7th Cavalry) and White Dragon Tong.


Already having quite a few Wild West figs, I've jumped on board for the book and some of the more Weird West figs. Really looking forward to this!

Dark Dungeon Gaming Mat from Ceri Design


I got my Dark Dungeon 4' x 3' gaming mat from the Ceri Design kickstarter last week...and it looks great!



The brown-tinged flagstones and cobblestones will be great for everything from Victorian streets to lost cities to dungeons deep. They will also go well with the Badlands Battlefield in a Box stuff I have...at least I think so but most of my stuff is in storage at the moment so I'll have to wait to find out for sure.


And it fits our kitchen table perfectly. I really need to give it an iron, though...but that too is in storage!

Anyway, I am certainly planning on picking some more up soon!

Pulp Heroes from Crooked Dice



Oh dear! Yet more temptation! Crooked Dice have just shown some pics on their Facebook page of their upcoming Pulp Heroes for their Time Lost Programme Guide.



Wow. Perfect for Lost World and Pulp gaming. The Rod Taylor (The Time Machine is one of my favourite films) and Doug McClure figs are just brilliant!

Dunkirk Joe, Wargames Illustrated's Latest Giants-in-Miniature

Dunkirk Joe

Wargames Illustrated have their latest Giants-in-Miniature figure up for pre-order here...this time Dunkirk Joe. Would work well for Pulp, VCBW or Campaign Sea Lion games.
