Excellent new MUDMEN figures from Bob Murch PulpFigures !!
« on: July 15, 2022, 09:54:37 PM »
About 15 years ago I encouraged Bob Murch to carry out his plan to sculpt figures based on the Asaro Mudmen of New Guinea, and add them to his Pulp Figures catalog.  I nudged him gently every 5 years or so, and it seemed that intermittent progress was being made.  You may be able to imagine my excitement when Bob recently offered to sell me early castings of those sculpts !!

The figures arrived, and they are better than I ever expected !!  It seems that there are 15 different versions of the full head covering mud masks, along with 5 body pose variations, most cast with open hands.  Also included are a very welcome and generous assortment of bows, one and two-handed weapons, and shields. 

Google 'Asaro Mudmen' to see photos of the source material !

Thanks, Bob Murch, I can hardly wait to get them painted up and on the table, to 'spook' our Pulp Heroes !
