Pulp City Starter Review

Hello and welcome to another review, this time I have managed to get my hands on the 2 starter sets for Pulp City. A small skirmish game of super heroes…..sorry Supremes battling each other for no other reason heroes and villains need πŸ™‚

Today I have both starter sets to look at, on both sides of the line, the boxes are really nice, well the models come in a white box but the sleeve is really nice..

You get colourful artwork on the back (including info on what you are getting plus the classes of the supremes in each box), while the front shows off the models themselves in some great looking studio colour schemes. Well-presented boxes all round then but now for the exciting bit.

So whats in the boxes then? Well obviously we get shiny models bit of a short review otherwise.. We also get the character cards which have all the stats and unique actions on them. Usually thing nice bright cards that fit into MtG card sleeve.

The Baddies

The Goodies

What is also nice is each box comes with a poster style version of the quick start rules which are enough for you to get on with a game or two. As you don’t need the full book unless you are going to some of the more advance stuff. The poster also works nicely as a way of looking up rules quickly in the heat of battle.

Now for the actual shiny, on the whole the models are one piece metal models, this makes a change but also pleases me. Sometimes you don’t need models to be in a million pieces to give dynamic looking models. For someone who is very adept at gluing himself to various things the less super glue flying around the better

The detail is really nice on the models, they have made sure that the art imitates the model which is nice and they have kept true a scaling of the models.

What I mean by that is each model is slightly different in size which adds to the feel of individuality you would expect from heroes and villains.

Just overall some really nice fun models, sometimes we have some very serious looking models in this hobby and there is nothing wrong with camping it up on an odd occasion.

So overall the models are easy to put together πŸ˜‰ while still keeping some nice dynamic poses, do they suffer a little from the flatness of one-piece models? Maybe a little bit but the poses are done in such a way that this is not a problem and they are all pretty nice. OK, maybe Wildman is a little odd and out of proportion but that probably works in his favour.

A fun set of models that are going to be fun to paint up in suitable 80s style.


Well back after a bit of break and writers block, not that I write too much but hopefully I can get back into the groove…

So we are hurtling towards new 40K release and I have to say, I can’t remember a more positive outcome from the internet in any of the releases I can remember.

Have GW finally hit on a winning formula to keep everyone happy? Probably not but they still make some dam sexy models.

I recently got my hands on an Imperial Knight and I have to say it has to be one of my favourite kits to put together an absolute joy!

Speaking of GW, we have all been recently been playing around with Shadow wars and it is proving addictive. Small quick brutal games (getting 3 games in an evening including set up and book-keeping) are always great but getting to use the models from all those failed armies has to be a huge win as well πŸ˜‰


Mythos is here and boy are the models sexy! (Review coming soon) For those that missed out on the kickstarter the guys have gone to retail and have a pre-order up on their website https://paranoid-miniatures.myshopify.com/ so you everyone can get there shiny on πŸ˜‰

No games this week, been pretty uneventful time recently

Death Guard Tactical Squad

So here is the first of my Death Guard, ready to go against the loyalists in 30K and once I have a nice nurgley unit sarge I will be using them in 40K as well πŸ™‚

Really enjoyed painting these up, the scheme I borrows from a YT video is quick and easy to achieve and we all know I love a crazy base πŸ˜‰
