Super Bowl Weekend

Typically, I only watch one football game each year.  That’s the Army-Navy game.  It’s been a disappointing decade (11 years actually).  Occasionally we watch the Super Bowl, because we get invited to a party or my wife wants to see the commercials.  This year we weren’t invited to any Super Bowl parties, but the kids were.  With taking kids to Super Bowl events, church, and going up to Delaware for a friend’s promotion party, Sunday was largely shot.  Saturday, on the other hand, provided a good opportunity for some light painting between other kid taxiing events.  I used the time to work on some odds and ends that have been in my project box for a while.

Before he created Pulp Figures, Bob Murch sculpted for RAFM.  His old Call of Cthulu figures are more 25mm compared to his current 28mm figures, but I think they are interesting and have some nice aspects to them.  This roadster has been calling my name for a long time.  I got it for Christmas and painted it up this weekend.  The casting on the roadster (lead) was poor and required a lot of putty work.  I think the final product turned out pretty good though.

In that same Call of Cthulu line are these neat policemen on motorcycles.  I especially like the side car with the officer armed with a shotgun.  In my Granville pulp games, the police tend to be outgunned by Venusians, gangsters, soldiers, sailors, and robots.  These will help redress the balance a bit.

What’s not to like about female cultists to go along with the other cultists.  I’m thinking the cultists will have a major role in the next Duke Morrison adventure.

In an earlier post, I showed pictures of the Sergeants Three from Pulp Figures.  There are two Sergeants Three sets:  one with “toad face” from Gunga Din.  The other comes with these two characters from The Drum.

I’m thinking these Cub Scouts will have a major role in the next Granville game as well!

When we were getting ready to release The GASLIGHT Compendium, we had been in discussions with Nic Robson at Eureka Miniatures about a custom figure.  They already had this one in the pipeline that was similar to what we wanted.  I have a unit of 10.

When I ordered the flight stands for the FASA Hangar 18 ships from my previous post, I also ordered these larger Hydra pirate ships for War Rocket.  The pirates haven’t seen action yet.
