Dangerous Dames - Pulp Figures By Bob Murch

Recommended Posts

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.

Any indication whether it'll involve miniatures based on the sketches he's recently been showing on Facebook?

What I posted was all that I heard.

No idea about anything more.

Well, guess we'll have to wait and see then. The sketches on FB are Mexicane ladies and some prohibition era style gun molls, so I figured that might wind up being 2 of the sets. just guesswork at this stage though.

I hope potential backers realize that Bobs sculpting style isn’t much like that drawing style when it comes to what the final minis will look like.

 

The drawings look very realistically proportioned but his sculpts are much more “cartoony”.

I wasn't familiar with Bob's work, so I googled "Bob Murch miniatures" and found his pulp figures website.  I'm not sure if "cartoony" would have been the word I used, but he definitely has a style.

 

Edit:  Okay.  This guy is a bit cartoony.

IIRC that fellow is a German officer for that Viet Cthulhu (errm, Weir War Nam, officially) game, and pretty near the top of the cartoonishness scale.

 

I'd expect the new ladies to turn out more along the lines his existing pulp heroines:

Oh, also, still somewhat rough-looking draft/preview for the campaign is up::

Urgh. I really love these sculpts, but...

 

From the preview of the campaign, he's only doing one tier for all 30 miniatures. No opportunity to get just one set (much less one mini).

 

At about $100 USD, I don't need enough of these to justify it... Especially with Bones V coming. Poor timing...I could see myself getting in for twenty bucks, but not a hundred.

I'm excited for the Kickstarter. I've been wanting to start collecting some of his Pulp minis for a while and keep talking myself out of it because I'm not a big fan of metal minis.

Project draft has been updated to stress free shipping worldwide and to show a bunch of stretch goals:

Campaign should presumably start some time this week, but afaik no confirmed date yet.

      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      What are GOAT Dice?
      Polyhedral 20 sided dice that produce a visual swirling effect when rolled. The effect is akin to animation or holographic. Don't believe me? Watch the video!
      Handmade and Artisanal. 
      Each GOAT Dice is produced by hand by one person(me). The process takes 4 days total with many overnight curing processes. The dice are made from resin and secret proprietary ingredients to create the visual effect. 
      Are these dice fair?
      The #1 question asked. The truth is, I don't know, but I think so. I've rolled these dice hundreds of times to shoot the very videos you see here as well as having played with them and they don't seem to be unfair based on my experience. They cannot be tested by the infamous salt water trick because they sink due to their higher than normal weight and density.
      They roll just like any other D20 with one small difference. The inertia from the spinning core causes a drama moment at the end of the roll, sometimes the inertia is strong enough to make the dice flip one more side and other times the inertia is not strong enough and it does a bounce back. This does not effect the randomness, but can create tension. 
      Shipping.
      I've done shipping like this, on a good month working full time I can make 300 total GOAT Dice, so I've split that in half and adjusted the shipping accordingly. The early backers, the first 150 dice, I am expected to get out before the end of December and with any luck delivered before Christmas. Then I batch them into 3 months (450) for each quarter of 2020, so if you miss early backing then your delivery will be targeted for end of march, if you miss March, end of June and so on. Best case scenario all dice are shipped in half the time allotted. When one reward tier is out of stock, another will be added with +3 months on expected delivery. 
       
      GOAT Admirer $1
      You like what you see and want to support this project. You can adjust your pledge at anytime and choose a reward. If you adjust your pledge for a reward, I will do my best to place you in the correct shipping timeline based on your time of pledging. If you want dice, best practice would be to back one of the other tiers. 
      Petting Zoo GOAT $25
      You will receive a single GOAT Dice of your choosing.
      Mountain GOAT $45
      You will receive two GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $22.50 for additional GOAT Dice up to 4, if you want more than 4 you are upgraded to GOAT Shepherd. (you may choose the same color twice or more)
      GOAT Shepherd $95
      You will receive five GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $18.00 for additional GOAT Dice, no maximum. (you may choose the same color twice or more)

      That might hurt ...
       
       

       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Midlam always has some very nice sculpts, great castings and timely delivery ... and I do not have enough Hobgoblins ... (i.e. less than 20).

      And lots more ... this is a bad time with Reaper Bones and lots of other interesting projects at the same time. Probably the first time I will take full advantage of every "pledge $1 now and rest in pledge manager" offer possible.

      Not sure if anyone cares, but thought i'd post it in case
       
      well articulated (19 points on average), scientifically accurate action figures of 1/18th Ceratopsians. Not all have been unlocked yet though, and probably won't be before it's done
       
      He has 1 successful kickstarter that he's fully delivered on in a timely manner and came out pretty well
