Pulp City Monster Rules Preview

Ever wanted to play a game as a giant Monster rampaging through a city and destroying everything in its path?
Or wanted to control a team of Supremes (supers) set on stopping a Super Villains latest huge robo invention?

Or course you have!

Well very soon you will be able to.
Monsters are coming to Pulp City. Giant Monsters, Robots and Elder Gods in fact!

As a little taster to the new rules, Devon (aka Beermokey) has posted up a preview of how to create rules for a massive Robot, and the final rules for his 'Wycthbot'.

You can check out the PDF on the Citizens of Pulp City Facebook Group (link)
For those of you that arn't 'Facebookers', check out the Pulp Citizen Blog (link) to see the preview.

The full Monster rules and LOTS of new fluff are due very soon. Pulp Monsters are just waiting on server issues to get resolved for their new site to go live.

What Monsters would you like to see rampaging through a city?

'Create a Super' Winners are.......

The votes are in!

After a huge battle that lasted for hours, the dust settled and 2 Supers were left standing.
1 Hero and 1 Villain. Facing off across the rubble.

Who were they?

(Wasn't listed as H or V so has taken the Villains side)

Codename: Terminal Velocity
Real Name: Alexander Vizcezk

Quote: “This will be over quickly.”

Powers: Terminal Velocity has the ability to control velocity. He can either enhance or decrease the motive force of a body, even going so far as to reverse the velocity back along its vector. While conscious, Terminal Velocity continually emits an ongoing field, centimeters above his own skin.

In practical terms, he is surrounded by a continual force field that blunts the incoming force of all attacks, but energy attacks still hurt him to a much greater degree than physical ones.

He carries a supply of thrown weaponry at all times, even if it is something as simple as a few ball bearings. Accelerated to over twice the speed of sound, they are as damaging as a high caliber gunshot. For less lethal purposes, he also generally has a few bean bags on him that can stun without inflicting too much trauma.

In hand to hand combat, he is a devastating force to be reckoned with, but his great power is offset by his relative lack of skill.

He has also been seen to use his power to enhance his own movement speed, causing him to “walk” at high subsonic speeds. Theoretically, he should be able to redirect his velocity and fly, but at present, he is limited to "slow falls", or negating his velocity to the point that he can fall any distance without harm.

Background: “Look mommy, look!” Alex cried as he added another bowling pin into the pattern he had whizzing in front of his amazed mother. “I’m up to 4 pins now!”

Youthfully juggling his little heart out, Alex was pretty sure this was the best birthday ever! He had just gotten to 4 pins, he was now TEN years old, not a little kid anymore, and his dad would be coming home any second from the science place to give him a special present. He’d told Alex it was going to change everything! The pins whirled in front of him, seeming to speed up as they went. It got harder and harder to keep them going. They just kept getting faster. And faster. And faster. Blood began to fall from his hands as the pins struck with crushing force, but they kept dancing back into the air. He heard his mother crying his name in fear as the door opened and his dad said “Where’s the birthday boy?”

And the pins exploded into motion.

Alex woke screaming.

The same dream again, his damned tenth birthday. It didn’t matter how many times he tried to console himself, or how many times his father tried to convince him otherwise, that was the day he’d killed his mother. Even now the after image of the dreams tried to creep back to the fore as he saw the pins accelerate away from his battered hands like cannonballs. Two went through the door, one of which shattered his dad’s right arm. One went through the floor, fast enough to penetrate through the basement, and two feet into the foundation. The last one…

Alex shook his head again to clear the dream. He reached out and grabbed his cellphone off of the nightstand, flicking it on to see the time; three in the morning. Sleep was out of the question, so it was time to see if some of the criminal element wanted to pay the price for Alex’s nightmares.

Description: Alexander is about 6’ 1” with dark brown, close cropped hair and pale blue-grey eyes. His build is athletic, with wide shoulders and a narrow waist.

His common costume is a combat harness on top of a grey, tough, fitted jumpsuit. In addition to the pouches on the harness, he adds a utility belt and a short waist length black leather jacket. The jumpsuit leads to a cowl that covers most of his face, excepting his mouth, eyes, and hair.

To further conceal his identity, Alexander will often wear a shoulder length blond wig.

And his Heroic opponent?

Name: Farraday Kage
Hero (reluctant)

Though his origin stems from science, F.K. (as his friends call him) would more likely say it was "nominative determinism."

When he was a child, his parents always attributed malfunctions of electronic devices to unseen "gremlins" roaming the house. The truth soon became apparent, that their son's touch somehow interfered with anything electronic operating properly.

As he grew up, the radius of his influence to cancel out parts of the electromagentic spectrum extended. As a teen, no one within 10 feet of him could expect to receive cell phone calls or access WiFi on their computers.

It was at 22 that the real strength of his power became apparent when, during a storm, F.K. was struck by lighting -- or rather he would've been, if the bolt hadn't dissipated in a dome-like pattern around the young man. Excited, F.K. ran to his family's shed, grabbed an old golf club and climbed a nearby trailer. When another electrical bolt flew down toward him, F.K. flung out his arms and was able to redirect the blast to the posts of his mother's laundry lines.

Since then, F.K. has learned to pull electric current from nearby lines and direct it in powerful bolts/blasts. He has also learned to extend his immunity to electrical blasts to others, expanding the radius of his own field briefly to encompass them. His innate interference with the EM spectrum also prevents many types of communication, which has played havoc with the few enemy teams F.K. has come up against.

Now in his late 20s, F.K. works with a local group of heroes because he's hooked on finding a constructive use for this aspect of his life that he always thought made him a freak. Additionally, some of the more experienced team members are helping him discover new applications for his talents.

After a battle of powers, Terminal Velocity seemed to have the upper hand. Putting Farraday Kage to the floor again and again with his trademark ball bearings.
Looking into the rubble around him, Faraday spotted some exposed wires. Drawing on the power of the still live cables, Farraday directed all the energy towards the metal ball bearings in the pouches of Velocity's suit.
As the energy flowed, Velocity fell.
Farraday was a lucky man. One more hit and it would have been him lying on the ground that day.

Second place of 12 Reaper Chronoscope models goes to-
proditor - Terminal Velocity

 Top prize of 2 Pulp City starter sets goes to-
Christopher Sheets - Farraday Kage

The winners have 2 weeks from today to contact me using the 'Email Hendybadger' link on the right at the top>>>> 

Congratulations to the winners and a massive thankyou to all who entered. Some amazing entries that were well thought up and written.

Badgers Booty - 22/08/12

Hi all,
Just a quick 'Badgers Booty' tonight as I have a game sitting waiting for me.

What do you think of these?

 The basic game will have humans and Orx, with booster teams, Forgefathers and Veer-myn.

The players will be categorized as "strong brawler," "field player," and "fast player." A player will have four stats.

Here's a leaked list that's currently circulating (take with a pinch of salt):
NYA MGE DBF11-1 DB Midgard Delvers $24.99
NYA MGE DBF70-1 DB Forge Father MVP $9.99
NYA MGE DBH11-1 DB Trontek 29er's $24.99
NYA MGE DBH70-1 DB Human MVP $9.99
NYA MGE DBM01-1 Dreadball Futuristic Sports Game $79.99
NYA MGE DBO11-1 DB Greenmoon Smackers $24.99
NYA MGE DBO70-1 DB Goblin MVP $9.99
NYA MGE DBV11-1 DB Skittersneak Stealers $24.99
NYA MGE DBV70-1 DB Veer-myn MVP
You'll notice that there is a Goblin MVP rather than an Orx one and that the Veer-myn MVP has no MSRP, the lists I've found don't have it. Supposedly, the minis will be plastic and either one piece or snap-fit, but looking at some of the prices, I'm thinking some will be metal

Those bikes are 28mm scale!!!!!!

Hobby and Competition Update (Updated)

There has been a lot of news and such on here recently and not very much about what I'm doing in my own hobby.
That's mainly due to the time I have had. Which as you can guess, has been not very much.

But I didn't mange to get some Merc Warjack conversion done recently.
The first 3 of many to come.
A converted Buccaneer with a porthole style head, Running Mariner with Freebooter head and legs and a plodding Freebooter with Mariner head and legs.

Here is the next plan. A Piratey Vanguard. Only waiting for a bit to arrive.
EDIT: This will be followed by Captain Bartolo, Fiona the Black, a converted Mariner and a Mariner/Rociante conversion

I have also started to paint finally.
First up with my new attempt and painting properly, Necrplanes Dr.Tenebrous, Doom Train and Night Fright from Pulp City.
(store pics, not mine)

EDIT: I am also going to be painting the Necroplane Minions. Necro GIs. Again these are the studio painted minis, not my own.

EDIT: For my Pulp City building, I have 4 models on the table. BIG ones.
2 official PC Monsters (Dino and Daemon), a 6.5" UFO and a huge Steampunk Dragon. Getting ready for the 'soon to be released' Pulp City Monster Rules.

On the topic of Pulp City, there is still a week to enter the competition to win £70 of Pulp City or £60 of Reapers Chronoscope. All you need to do is think up a Hero or Villain of your own.
Full Details >>HERE<<

That's all for now,
Hendybadger awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
