NEW RELEASES: Bigfoot & Pixels

Great news for Pulp Citizens – we have just added six new packs to the web-store. This sees Pulp City return to a more regular release schedule, and we will announce the planned calendar for further new releases soon – there will be some surprises, including the return of some familiar faces!

 

Bigfoot

Bigfoot is a very hard-hitting Infiltrator; mounted on a 40 mm base and packing Trump Strength 6, he can wreak havoc with your foes and is an ideal addition to a Hero Team.

 

minipixels-600x338

Pixels

Pixels (which come as a pack of 3 Pixels and a Mega Pixel!) come in 5 different colours and are Exclusive Minions which start the game in play with Vector, who can then Summon extra Pixels if needed, replacing them almost as quickly as they are lost! They give bonuses depending on whether they are attached to a Friendly model (defensive bonus) or Enemy model (offensive bonus). In addition, 3 small Pixels can be combined to a single Mega Pixel, allowing Vector to then Summon up to two more Pixels!

allpixels-1000x563Pixels are available in the following colours (all minis in the pack are the same colour)

 

Look out for Spotlights on these characters very soon.

Preview: Prisoner #176 Production

p176 frontOne of the new Supremes unleashed by the success of the Cold War Kickstarter is Prisoner #176, who comes as a one-piece body sculpt with two tentacle arm accessories.

When producing miniatures with awkward appendages, it is vital to balance out the coolness of the concept against future production and hobby assembly challenges.

The arms we created for Prisoner can be assembled in a very simple way. They fit snugly whichever way you decide to put them in (in the pictures, we didn’t use any glue – the final metal one may require glue because of the weight of the parts).

p176 backIf you would like to be more adventurous in the way you pose your own Prisoner #176, it should be simple enough to separate the arms with two swift cuts, reposing them any way you like.

 

Once Kickstarter fulfilment is complete we will be adding Prisoner #176 and the rest of the Red Republik and Supreme Alliance minis to the web-store, so be sure to keep an eye out for the new models when they arrive!

Baroque Sculpt

baroqueThe success of the Pulp City: Cold War Kickstarter allowed us to add a few extra Supremes to the line-up, including Bulleta (who we showed in the last preview) and her twin brother Baroque. The twins have previously allied themselves with both the Supreme Alliance and the Red Republik, and now both teams have arrived in Pulp City’s present, who knows where their true loyalties will lie?

 

Sculpted by the supremely talented James Van Schaik, Baroque is the final sculpt we needed to complete the minis from the Kickstarter campaign.

Cold War Sculpting

bullettaSculpting is progressing well for the Supremes and Minions unlocked and unleashed through our recent Pulp City: Cold War Kickstarter.

 

One of the recently completed sculpts is the super-fast Bulleta, twin sister of the mage Baroque.

 

These powerful twins have shifting loyalties, aligning themselves to both the Supreme Alliance and the Red Republik at times.

Solomon

Solomon, the colossus from Rhodion is the last in the line of powerful warrior kings.

In fact he is both ruler and his only subject in one person, as a chain of unfortunate events led to a once proud world becoming just a tiny jagged island with a single spiral tower drifting in the blackest regions of the sky.

The royal blood of Rhodion came with the divine gift of gigantism. Warrior kings led their kin to battle wading through the sea of enemy troops like giant armored ships, breaking the waves with colossal double-handed blades.

No single warrior could stand to match a Rhodian noble. But when the gods started falling asleep, the Fading affected the king’s progeny in the most bizarre way. It seemed like emotions slowly seeped out of those mighty warriors, draining them of humanity. Some fell into the embrace of madness, like Solomon’s father, while some decided to end their bleakness by throwing themselves off the Cliff of Despair, while others searched for most cruel acts that could spark any interest in them.

Solomon was different. While his kin took on their quests of self-annihilation, he just became slower, increasingly slow with every passing day. When the priests of Luna finally discovered the cause behind Fading, Solomon was a lone survivor, star-gazing atop his tower, King of the Bleak Kingdom. His bond to the floating remnant of Rhodion is very different than some of the other Reaver Lords to their own realms. He IS the kingdom, and he fights to stay alive and keep his kingdom alive, and not just awaken the Slumbering One.

Do not think that the warrior’s heart has stopped beating in his chest. Far from it. When called upon by the power of ancient treaties, Solomon is one fierce war beast. The Fading didn’t affect his strength in any way, he just became more calculating and purposeful. The gift of the Bleak Kingdom made him also less vulnerable to wounds and almost immortal, as his time passes just so much slower.

Shadow Prince

Shadow Prince, the Reaver Lord of Sollyn, is only a wraith-like remnant of the bright ruler of the elvenkind from before The Fading. His people, unlike most of the other worlds, revered and still revere the Sun. Even the dark wind of Fading that swept through their forests did not change that. When the Fading’s dark dreams of the Slumbering Ones covered Sollyn’s sky, Shadow Prince went to the belly of his world, traversing the tunnels that no kin of his had ever seen. After days in the darkness of the underground, he finally reached the heart chamber of his world and stole the two hands of the clock that controlled the time flow on Sollyn.

The Slumbering One didn’t notice that, and even if so, it wouldn’t care that the time has stopped. The last day of summer would last the eternity as long as Shadow Prince was in the possession of what became his precious weapons – twin swords, Solstice and Equinox.

The model was sculpted by Remy Tremblay.

Death Girl

One of the biggest isles and the home of the nation of the East, Aia is the name of the giant Turtle God on whose back the Eastern Kingdom was built.

The Emperor Li faced his biggest problem in centuries – father of ninety-nine daughters, he was unable to sire a male who would ascend to the throne. General Tao, leader of the Black Sun Samurai, was whispered to be getting ready for rebellion when the Fading hit.

Slumbering Aia woke up only when Tao opened up the gate to the Nether, his samurai merging with terrifying Oni, forming an army that assaulted the seat of power and slew Emperor Li. Aia’s cry of pain transformed ninety-eight of Li’s daughters into Wailing Spirits. The youngest one, known ever after as Death Girl, was sworn by her father to the death goddess Izanami, and ventured to the Fuji summit where she received the gift from her deity, Severance, the bone staff that splits human and Oni, sending the Black Sun demons back to hell.
