Here come the natives.

The first batch of figures are ready to be painted. I have a pretty busy week but hopefully I can get some time in.

King Kong's gate finished.

Here are some shots of the finished gate. A bit heavy on the dry brush but, it got the job done. Also, my pulp figures arrived in the mail so time to get reacquainted with small brushes and back pain.

Kong's wall

Hello adventurers. One of the features that stood out for me when watching King kong were the huge doors built to keep him contained. So, while I've been waiting for my pulp figures to arrive I've been busy making up my very own version. I decided to go for the look of the original because it feels a bit more pulpy.

I have built my version out of some old boxes. I used hole filler to cover the boxes in order to try and not have the corrugated look. I also wanted to make sure the masking tape was not visible after painting. Was a bit of work but I hope it will be worth it. I will look to invest in some foam for future terrain projects. Here are the walls as they stand unpainted.

Finaly. I cut out some card to add relief to the flat areas. Even got my kids to draw up some designs which turned out really cool. Pretty happy with it so far. Now, where is that tin of paint...

In the deep end!

Pulp Island, a place of adventure, terror and giant critters! Welcome to what I hope will be a long lived blog about my adventures in pulp gaming. I have been a fan of the pulps tabletop wargaming for some time but have never put the two together. In fact, I have spent more time planning and researching games than actually playing them. So, I have jumped in the deep end and purchased some pulp minis which will form the backbone of my adventures on Pulp Island.

Here are the figures I have purchased. All from Bob Murch's Pulp Figures line. With these I hope to capture the excitement of King Kong on the tabletop. Wish me luck!
