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.

      Here is my collection of fantasy ruins the can be 3D printed for tabletop games.
      The pledges will be delivered as STL files for you to print on your home 3D Printer.
      Disclaimer: i do not own a 3d printer yet so i have not test printed these models, if you find any error let me know and i will sort out the meshes for you.
      All models have been checked for errors in mesh-mixer and a couple of them will need to be sliced to fit onto smaller build plates some of them already fit onto a 300 x 300 mm plate.
