'Paint the City Pink' - Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraiser

Dr Warlocks pink take on the PC logo

Some of you may remember that last year we ran a Breast Cancer Brawl at our local club where all the participants helped to raise over £500 for the local cancer ward.
I wanted to run something again this year but unfortunately the club has shut down.
Then I spotted that the Breast Cancer Brawl team had suggested adding Pulp City to their list of games.
That gave me an idea.

Paint the City Pink!!

The idea of this 'supreme' fundraiser is a painting competition.
Each person paints 1 or more Pulp City models in a pink scheme and sends them in. (Or any other super hero or villain if you cant get your hands on PC ones)
The top models will win some awesome prizes that have been donated for the competition (list below)
ALL the models will then be auctioned off to raise funds for Cancer Research UK and the Breast Cancer Campaign
Their work helps people worldwide and every penny we can raise helps them.

-3 Unreleased Reaver Lords models from Pulp Monsters Pics HERE

I'm going to be doing Tangent and the Green serpent myself. Going to go all out and attempt a pink urban camo on her.
Wish me luck!

I think some of these would look great in pink as well!

I really hope lots of people get the pink paint out and take part. The funds raised will mean so much to so many people.
I would be very grateful if you could also share this post on your blogs, sites, forums and such and help get the word out to as many people as possible and raise even more!!!!

Henydbadger awaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!


  1. Just ordered some mini's to paint up and send. Will have to get them painted up quickly as I'm in Australia and want to make sure I have plenty of time for the post to arrive...Great Idea by the way.

    1. You have until the middle of November. Painting deadline is the end of Oct then 2 weeks to post.

  2. If you would like to add anything then just ask

  3. Think I'll have some of this. Painting pink will make a nice change to grim and gritty superheroes and it's for a good cause too. Don't tell Rusti though, I'm supposed to be sculpting... ;)

    1. Cant wait to see what you come up with.
      I wont say anything!

  4. Yep, I'm in! Will post pics on the blog when finished and in the air!

  5. Dumb question, does it have to be a pulp city model?

    1. Feel free to do something else that fits if you like

  6. We lost my wife's dad to lung cancer, so this charitable effort means a lot. I know the tie-in is with breast cancer awareness, but anyone who's lost a loved one to any form of cancer certainly knows how important research and education are. Thanks, Ian, for taking the lead on another great effort.

    1. Just trying to do something thats worth doing

  7. Hey Ian! I'm hoping to paint up a June Summers for this. I look forward to it!


    1. Thats awesome.
      I will be bidding furiosly for that one myself!

  8. I will be working on mine also, the 2 week bonus would be nice.

    1. It will be happening. New dealines will be posted up today

  9. Hi, I wish to partecipate, I will paint an Heroclix Huntress, is she good?

    1. Heroclix is a great idea for this. Never thought of that until now.
      If you dont have / cant get hold of any PC then anything else that fits the theme is good

    2. Would you accept a conversion? I mostly have GW and Mantic bitz but I am positive I could create something.

      Do I need to register on the forum or just send the finished article?

    3. A conversion is fine.
      Interested to see what you come up with.

      No need to register anywhere. Just send the mini in

    4. I've just send the photo, let me know if the mail arrive pls!

    5. Arrived fine. Thanks.
      Will be posted up in the next couple if days

  10. It is good to work for a social cause.
