Pulp Characters
« on: January 20, 2017, 10:03:48 PM »
My first offering on the Pulp Boards.

I've had the Pulp Alley rules for around a year and still haven't given them a test drive, so I thought I'd paint up some pulp figs as a break from all the sci fi, and put a couple of leagues together to give 'em a spin.
Here's the first of the lot. Statuesque Phantom Ace with a head swap from a Hasslefree fig.
I love the Statuesque figs, they've got such clean lines to them, they're a real pleasure to behold, but I guess I just wanted to make him mine, hence the head swap.







Hero or villain? As yet to be decided.
He also needs a name if you have any ideas.
I was thinking of Col. Jack Tempest, what do you think?
Any better ideas?

I did the same thing.  I gave him a bare head. more heroic looking in my mind.  I've named my character "Nick Wilde".

Looks great! I did a headswap for Minerva when I made my Indian league.

I've named my character "Nick Wilde".

Excellent work! Reminds me a little of the Rutger Hauer character in Blade Runner.

Great work!  Thanks for sharing.  I really like the head swap, and your name is cool too.  Sounds like a "good-guy".

Was the head swap pretty straight forward?

It's easy as long as you're not trying to save the original head, which was  my intention :?. You just saw it off and then drill out the neck with progressively larger bits.

Thanks for all the positive feed back folks.
