That is rather nifty - you should do a pole with an windsock see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windsock

I should have thought of that. Maybe later.

things have stalled (again) because I need to find another apartment, and the search is taking a lot of time and energy, so I'm working on painting some figures in the hope I'll be able to make a game work after I move...



Only primer so far, but I'll add a bit each day...

I'm working on the figures, slowly. This is mainly because after seeing the work on here I'm getting all ambitious; again; I'm building up a league of Dusenjetjäger or "Jet Troops"





In my personal Pulp Universe WW1 ended in 1916 or thereabouts and Germany had a series of revolutions then dissolved into the old states of the German Confederation. The South West of the country will be a bit chaotic but is dominated by three major players, the largest of which is Württemberg. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W%C3%BCrttemberg) The flag of Württemberg is a dark red and black, hence the red details.

In our own timeline Württemberg has always been at the forefront of technology, and obviously it is the home of the Zeppelin and Mercedes et c. So I'm assuming that their military will enthusiastically adopt any new technology, much of which will undoubtedly be as dangerous to their own troops as any enemy.

Great thread! I just read all 7 pages of it. I love your scratch building and in particular your insistence on creating everything yourself rather than just buying an MDF or resin model. I used to be that way and wish I had time and your life passion, Andy. You are an inspiration!

Thanks Mike. It's largely due to lack of cash, but I confess the process of making interesting things out of other things is fascinating in itself.

I've worked out how to improve phone photos of my figures. I'm still working on the "gluing figure to base" quality...

The Dusenjäger are complete:



Also, the flat hunting which has been plaguing me for several months has finally been resolved; it wasn’t helped by the need to be within easy cycling distance of work because I’m a tree hugging hippy and refuse to own a car.



In the meantime I'm painting my way through a stack of Pulp Figures as represented by “Lev the Anarchist” who is carrying enough explosives that he’s probably a danger to friend or foe within about 20 metres in a combat situation, I particularly like the way he has a detonator on his back but appears to be lighting a fuse on the dynamite in his hand.

He’ll soon be joined by some comrades in arms to travel the world and awaken the proletariat to their oppression, or possibly of course, oppress them a bit more in service of the highest bidder; even anarchists gotta eat.

I'm getting seriously addicted; these arrived this evening, from Miniatriculum:



I'd also really like to have a female league based on the largely female groups of thieves from London in the 20's and 30's; they tended to be very, even ostentatiously glamorous during their heists.Are there any figures available that would fit this description? I've looked around but I'm still not familiar with the ranges of figures in Pulp...

Try the gangster ranges both from Pulp figures, Copplestone castings and Great Escape Games. You may find what you are looking for.

Excellent discussion and inspiring work!  How thick are the acrylic bases you’re using?  Thanks

Thanks for the suggestions and replies, apologies for my delayed response; I didn't get a notification.

More figures being painted at the moment and I really would like to try some kind of airship...

Thanks Dan. I bought a set of 3mm bases, but I'm trying 2mm to see if they're a bit less obtrusive.
