Help With RAFM Ghouls

Recommended Posts

Hopefully the old timers in this forum can help me out.  I recently went through my bins of bones and metals and dragged out all the ghouls and ghasts I could find and then painted them up.  I had Reaper's 2450, 3716, a bunch of 77159, and 2102 (that one's a ghoulish looking zombie but it got painted).  I also came across two blisters from the old RAFM company 3892 and 3894 and the lost minis wiki says they were sculpted by Bob Murch.  They're much older in style (ie - very armature basic) in comparison to today's standards and I was curious if anyone knows the release date of these miniatures?

 

Here's the painted minis:  http://minipaint.blogspot.com/2018/05/rafm-ghouls-3892-and-3894.html

 

Thanks,

Rick

Okay. First off I prefer the term:

"Level 55 Miniatures Enthusiast."

:poke:

 

All I can tell you is that those two ghouls do not appear in RAFM's 1983 catalogue, but they are in RAFM's 1992 catalogue and at that time there were 6 blisters in the set.

 

Bob Murch is a very nice guy, I've met and bought minis from him several times at a local convention. He lives here in BC.

If you really want to know more you might try contacting him through his company Pulp Figures.

 

Now you'll need to excuse me.

I have to go get those dang kids off my lawn.

 

Also.

Buglips is pretty knowledgable about RAFM.

But you might need to try typing his name 3 times or sacrifice some old Ral Partha paint to get him to appear.

I think Bob Murch is correct.

 

But I'm a youngster so I might be off...this is waaayyyy before my time..:ph34r:

      Picked up just because I wanted to paint some more Ghouls, here are The Grymwatch from Warhammer Underworlds.

      I was amazed the amount of character they can get into a snap-fit kit these days.

      The Ghouls, aka the Flesh-Eater Court faction's warband was the first to be released seperately for Beastgrave, the third season of the Warhammer Underworld game, apart from the warbands in the Beastgrave game set that is.
      As soon as I saw these, I knew I had to have them. Still, it took me several months after building and undercoating them until I got around to actually painting them. Much like most minis I compulsively buy. I still have first and second season warbands to paint...and most of a ghoul king army...
      I did these in the same sitting as the Reaper Bones Hungering Dead. Luckily, ghouls can be really quickly painted with good results.
      These I had undercoated black with white zenithal when I first bought them, before standing around gathering dust for a few months.
       
      Alot of pics behind the click:

      I originally purchased him use his alternative skull head and arm, but needed a human necro for an upcoming scenario. I like this version too.

      Kickstarter is now Live and I’ve updated the thread title to the name of the kickstarter.
      Heres the link:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1313980061/pulp-figures-dangerous-dames-28mm-miniatures?ref=9p7oe7&token=186495ca
       
      I don’t know what the actual name of the kickstarter will be, but I was at a local wargaming convention earlier today that longtime miniature sculpter Bob Murch attended and had his sales booth set up at.
       
      I happened to overhear him mention to another customer that he was planning a “quick and dirty” kickstarter for next month (May) for 5 or 6 sets of female characters for across his Pulp Figures ranges.
       
      Figured I better post a thread here in case there are any other Murch fans.
      Plus it serves as a reminder to keep an eye and ear out for the project.

      I had to change the title since apparently "March of the Murlocs" is already a thing in the current game. And I was so proud of the name, too!
       
      My husband loves his gift (the biggest and bestest success!!!) but it would have been great if my painting for my ReaperCon entry wasn't so awful two years in a row.
       
      All the details, rambling love stories, and modding/creation details are in my WIP thread here!
