At Historicon I picked up all the new stuff from Pulp Figures that I didn’t already have. Two sets were French Foreign Legion figures. It appears that this well be the beginning of a new line of figures for Bob Murch. All I know about the stereotypical Foreign Legion is Beau Geste and the Laurel and Hardy spoof, but I figured I could work these figures into a GASLIGHT game as a contingent.
As with all the Pulp Figures the animation and sculpting is superb.
I also finished this shark man from Bones II (I think). This figure will find his way into a future undersea adventure game.
I recently ordered a couple of kits from Multiverse Gaming in Poland. I really like their kits. The MDF is just a little thicker than others, and the kits are well designed. In addition to the new Monarch Theater, which I haven’t assembled yet, I picked up the diner and a couple of smaller pieces.
The design of the kit is such that I could paint the red pieces (that look a little pink in these photos) separately from the silver pieces and then assemble the kit. This made the painting extremely easy. In fact, I spray painted the red and silver pieces. After I assembled the kit, I then went over the red pieces with a dark pink dry brush to make it look a little more weathered.
That dry brushing step doesn’t show up in these pictures either.
In addition to the diner, I also put together these nice little mail boxes. If I have a complaint about either kit, it is that on these the lettering was just outlined. Since the writing was small, the outlined letters were difficult to paint. I would have preferred lettering that was just engraved, rather than outlined. I think they would have been easier to paint.
Both will make nice additions to my pulp town.
