Jungle Pulp - A "Pulp Alley" AAR - with added Jungle WIP pics
« on: January 17, 2014, 05:17:00 PM »
Ok, so I have been in possession of the “Pulp Alley” rules and cards for a little while, but now we have actually managed to put them to good use. A couple of games, admittedly just before the Christmas break but here is the first part ...

1943, somewhere deep in the Amazon. A special unit of German Military personnel have worked their way into the interior in search of a statute; the group has secret orders from the highest authority to obtain the statue at any cost. However, it appears the orders are not quite as secret as they should be; the intrepid adventure and agent Professor von Nash and his team of helpers have also made their way to the same location to prevent the statue falling into the “wrong” hands ...



A table full of jungle – nothing like starting off easy and this certainly wasn’t. Line of sight mostly blocked and some nasty little perils lurking in the undergrowth.  



The leader of the Military group searching for that elusive safe passage through the jungle



One of the members of the Military group locates a chest containing a mysterious map and succeeds in secreting in his back pack, whilst his comrades ...



... try and out manoeuvre Professor von Nash and his trusty hound “Hemmingway” ...



... but they are spotted and Hemmingway makes a dash for them (several times) ...



Meanwhile, in another remote part of the jungle, Klaus and Imbi, the Professors assistants get a little too close to an over-friendly carnivorous plant.



The goal is reached eventually, although the Military group had been seriously delayed by some carefully aimed shots



To the victor, perils passed and the statue may have fallen into the wrong hands! (or has it ?)

The chase is on ... where will the mysterious map lead them once the statue has been safely delivered to Berlin?

Miniatures mostly Artizan, with a couple of Foundry and Bluemoon and Jungle terrain virtually all pet shop fodder, some of which is mounted on Snapdragon resin hedges. The statue enclosure is Games Workshop and the Cthulhu statue from the bits box; all painted and created by “The Somnambulist” and myself.

Great board! Love that photo angle looking out from the temple -- not an easy shot to take!

Do you have a tutorial anywhere on your jungle pieces? I'm always looking for new ideas...

Thanks guys,

Mike, the bases for the jungle terrain were the old Snapdragon hedges; I painted the bases a dark brown and gave them a two stage dry brush to lighten them up. The prepared sections were drilled using a 1.0mm bit in various locations and pieces of jungle scenery glued into the drilled holes. Once everything was dry, I applied some of my usual scatter material to the bases so they blend in with my gaming board. I'll try and get some photos posted of some of the stages.

Dave, (and Joroas) thanks for the heads up on Mila's "Phantom Agent" promo.

Now to get the next adventure posted.

Good Germans against evil Germans always makes for a great game of Sauerkraut flavored pulp.  ;)

Excellent AAR. I like your terrain a lot. And every jungle should have a Cthulhu statue!

Thanks guys for all the positive comments.

I have the next adventure to post up soon, but I managed to find some shots of the jungle pieces as work in progress. So in answer to Mike Demana's question ....


Do you have a tutorial anywhere on your jungle pieces? I'm always looking for new ideas...

here are a few pics of the terrain pieces







All of these pieces are awaiting ground cover and the temple needs the jungle stuff adding.

Into the desert next ...
