More Damsels in Distress from Pulp Figures


Here are the rest of the damsels in distress from Pulp Figures "Cringing Captives" pack.


To quote owner and sculptor Bob Murch:

"Some mugs’ll tell ya that playing with toy soldiers is for kids. After you knock’em flat, grab your dice and a mit full of Pulp Figures and join in the Rugged Adventure! .45s blazing, you can push these little character charged castings around the game table; fighting mad scientists, criminal kingpins or freakish flunkies until Ma calls you in for supper. If its liver and onions again I'd recommend pretending you didn't hear and go discover a lost city instead."


I love Bob's attitude toward gaming - we don't have to grow up and still have some fun!

 I added some brass rod to this figure as there is no pole that she is actually tied too!


Here's a view of the brass rod I added. I just filed a grove in the back and attached the figure with super glue.

 My least favorite figure - not because of the sculpting but I had so much trouble trying to get her face painted to a decent standard! I was definitely off - my eyes are getting old.




All right now, as H.G. Wells wrote as the full title of his wargaming rules Little Wars: "Little Wars is a set of rules for playing with toy soldiers, written by H. G. Wells in 1913. Its full title is Little Wars: a game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books."

So game and have fun all you boys and girls!
