'Not so Mini' MONSTERS!

 There has been talk online about the new Monster rules for Pulp City that are meant to be posted up very soon.
What do we know about them so far?
You will be able to use a Monster instead of a Pulp City team of Supremes.
They will have 3 different levels. (9,12 and 15 iirc) Basically they are as powerful as that many levels of Supremes.
There will be 3 different types. Beasts (nature), Elders (mystery) and robots (science)
You will be able to create your own monster rules using 100s of different options. Quite like the current BOOM Minion rules from the Pulp City Guide.
As well as the create your own rules, there will be premade rules sets for the 4 builds of the Pulp Monster and more.

Time to look at some big toys!
I'm going to start off with the Monsters I have or plan to pick up.

The official Pulp City Monster model. 
4 different builds but a whole variety of different options if you mix and match the bits. Made to create 2 Elders and 2 Beasts. You can see scale shots and layouts of the different builds >>HERE<<

Heroclix Giant-Sized X-Men Sentinels. Mk1,2+5.
They fit perfectly on 80mm bases and look the part for Robots. Can see them storming through the city on the hunt for Supremes.
Mk 2+5 are about a head taller than Giant Hadron but Mk1 is even bigger! Scale shots >>HERE<< and >>HERE<<

Perfect for climbing tall buildings with a helpless lady in hand.
There are some great scale shots and even a Battle Report using this mini on the Pulp Citizen Blog

Banebeasts - Talos, Colossus of Bronze from Maelstrom Games
Ever watched Jason and the Argonauts? Think Hellsmith should have a new friend?
This could be perfect for you. Can even be used as Beast, Elder or Robot!

Steampunk Dragon from Armorcast
In the fluff, CORE turns into a giant metal dragon to fend off a Necroplane attack. At 8 inches tall this looks like the perfect model to be Byte Dragon

Area 51 UFO from Pegasus Hobbies
I really hope I will be able to tweak the Robot rules so I can use this UFO. You always see them in comics.
If I can, it will make a good Necroplane Harvest Ship for Byte Dragon to take on.
About 6 inches wide I think. (Mine hasn't arrived yet)

TR-3E UFO from Atlantis Models
If the rules will allow me to make a flying saucer, I quite like this one as an Ulthar invader. 5 1/2" wide.
Seeing there will be 100s of rules options, I should be safe picking this one up.

I have also found a selection of other large models. Not sure if I want to pick these up yet but the might be just the thing someone is looking for.

Pegasus Hobbies War of the Worlds tripod

Reaper Miniatures Grave Horror, Purple Wyrm, Pit Fiend + Spirit of the Forest

Kaiju Kaos Colossal Subterranean, Kaos Monster, Son of Gourdzilla and THE COBLIN!

That's not a bad list on 'not so' Miniatures. But I would love to see and collect some more.
Do you know of any?
What else would you use as a Monster Beast, Elder God or Giant Robot?
Please post them below.

There are 3 (very loose) rules to follow.
1. It has to fit on an 80mm base
2. Should be at least 4" tall
3. You can see it rampaging through or attacking a city in a comic book
Cant wait to see what everyone comes up with.....

The Future's Bright. The Future's.......... Badger

I thought it would be nice to put together a post on the future of my hobby and the future of this blog.
At the moment I have LOADS of models and different games lying around, and not enough time to finish or play them all.
So I have chosen to narrow down what I'm doing for a while.
My own hobby will be 3 games (for now) and the blog will have a couple more.

This blog is going to get a 'little' narrowed down. Some things going but some things getting added.
In the near future you will see-
Relics Reviews, General gaming news I like the look of, New products I find and like, Guest posts on Malifaux, and some surprises.
And content from and for my 3 chosen games (below)

Pulp City is my favourite skirmish game of all time. Amazing minis with brilliant rules.
What other game lets a 50 year old man wearing a train kill a vampire bulldog with a portaloo while a robot gorilla throws zombie superman off a building?

What you will see on here-

My own collect, paint and play ALL Pulp City models project
News and Reviews and of the game and minis
2012 11+1 painting challenge and Pulp City painting exchange
Theatrical battle reports, some in comic form
Reviews, building, painting and finished scenery from companies such as Sarissa Precision, Ainsty Castings and Fenris Games
My own paint schemes inspired my characters from Marvel and others.
MONSTERS! From a selection of different companies
And more

Pirates are my other main love. In any form. But Legends of the High Seas has 28mm ships as well!
Need to learn this game but from what I have seen and tried so far its great fun.

What you will see-

Reviews and battle reports from the game.
Painting, converting and reviews of pirate minis from companies like Black Scorpion and Black Cat Bases
SHIPS! Huge ones! From Ainsty Castings,  Games of War and Minimi
Sea boards, islands and pirate ports with some weird and wonderful additions!
More piratey things

Infinity is the newest game to me. But after playing recently I have found its a lot of fun.
Started up a PanOceania force and really enjoying it.

What will be on here-

PanOceania models. Building, painting, reviews etc
Sci-Fi scenery that's home made and from Micro Art Studio and Sarissa Precision
Battle reports
News and anything else that comes up.

So, that's that!
Looks like I have lots of work to do!
