Fenris Games New Grey Aliens

| Saturday, 21 December 2013 | 0 comments |
Fenris Games have just announced that they will soon be releasing a new range of Alien Greys.

The range is sculpted by Tim Prow and looks to combine a very retro sci-fi styling with some disturbingly frightening alien designs.

Copplestone Casting new Armoured Car

I haven't featured Copplestone Castings on this blog before which is a bit of an oversight. Mark has various ranges of miniatures that should appeal to the pulp gamer, from obvious choices like the Kiss Kiss Bang Bang range and the Gangster Range through to the Future Wars range and the High Adventure range.

In this article though I would like to focus on the 1/55 scale Vehicles, virtually all of which come from the First World War or Inter War period, making them idea for many different Pulp style games. The range generally concentrates on some of the more obscure armoured vehicles from the early years of production of this type of military vehicle.

This is the latest addition to the range. A German "police" armoured car from between the wars!

Finally we have the only item in the range that is not necessarily form the first half of the 20th century. A mini-sub.

Pulp Alley New Range of Figures!

The producers of the Pulp Alley rules set have announced that they are producing a new range of figures to support the game.

These are the first two concepts.

They are sculpted by Andrew Rae of Statuesque Miniatures.

And the Winner is...

The competition to win a copy of Osprey Books We Will Destroy Your Planet finished last Thursday at Midnight. I was very busy on Friday and over the weekend, but I have just been through the results and we only had two correct answers.

The answer are as follows:-

1. The Earth is located approximately how far from the centre of the Milky Way Galaxy?

  B. 27,000 Light Years

2. True or False: Crashing the moon into the Earth is likely to destroy the planet?

 B. False

3. How many Lagrange points exist between the Earth and the Moon allowing for the maintenance of a stable position with minimum fuel usage?

 B. 5

The questions were supplied by Osprey Books and I think the tricky one was number 2. The paragragh in the book that deals with this particular issue on page 38 or 39 (I don't have the book to hand as I write this), and the general consensus is that the Moon hitting the Earth would probably be fairly catastrophic for the residents but the Earth itself is very tough and would almost certainly survive!

Anyway, used a random number generator to pick the winner and, drum roll please, 10 second pause for effect (don't you hate that when TV shows do it), the winner is... Mildot2u.

Strega Unbound: Some nice pulpy inspiration!

I just found this short film that combines the Cthulhu Mythos with Nazi and a nice Film Noir feel!
