I am working on a pulp scenario, entitled Duke Morrison and the Mounties for our New Years Eve gaming event and for the Cold Wars convention. I bought two of the new sets of Pulp Figures mounties to support the game. This weekend was the first time I had picked up a brush in several weeks.
Pulp only makes the one pack (so far) of dismounted Mounties (what I call “dismounties”). I bought two sets to make a ten-man GASLIGHT squad. The scenario will also involve the older Sergeant Preston figure.
There was some recent “conversation” on TMP about Bob Murch’s faces. Since TMP message boards are often inhabited by haters and critics, several folks jumped on the bandwagon. I like his figures, however, and I think they have real character. The detail is deep enough to be easily painted.
Stay tuned after the first of the year for an update on Duke Morrison and the Mounties.
I finally got around to modifying two Make Knight tanks that I bought recently. These used to sell for $35 each, but I found two at $5 each at different conventions.
This is what the tank looks like before I modified it. I’ve never thought the spikey wheel on the front made much sense. I could only imagine this tank burrying its front end into the dirft after a few yards and becoming immobile. I ordered resin wheels from Brigade games, cut off the spikey wheels, repainted the whole thing, and glued on the new wheels. I also mounted a commander’s machinegun (also from Brigade Games) on top. I’m pretty happy with the way the two tanks turned out.
I’m not sure when these tanks will see action for the first time, but at least they are off the project table. So, now I have to devise a scenario that uses them in time for Historicon!
