Moving house this week. And we're going to be without broadband until the end of August beginning of September...it seems calling BT two weeks before the move was leaving things too late. Grrr. So this blog will be taking a little holiday. Back in September!

I'm back...sort of. Back from a great two weeks in Cornwall but now busy getting everything ready for the big move next week. So things will still be a bit quiet on the blogging front.
I did, however, notice Wargames Illustrated's latest Giants-in-Miniature fig...Pulp Agent Agent Peggleton!
Sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.
Agent Peggleton is a woman in a man’s world – and she’s better than most of them. A veteran of countless special operations during World War Two, she continues to use her prodigious analytical and combat skills to investigate threats to Democracy and overcome the enemies of Freedom. With her cut glass British accent and her classical looks, she’s a devastatingly attractive woman who can be relied upon to use her feminine wiles and combat skills in equal measure. She wields her trusty Thompson submachine gun in her quest for justice. At times, she suffers at the hands of the sexism endemic to the late 1940’s, constantly striving to prove herself.
Lovely fig and one I have already ordered! Agent Carter figs seem to be a bit like buses...you wait for ages and then two come along at once! Ivor Evans (Saturday Mornings blog) will be happy to have another mini for his superb Agent Carter Pulp Alley games!

I got my first lot of Copplestone gangsters back from Matt the other day. As always, he's done a brilliant job!
I've taken a few pics...apologies for the inappropriate terrain but everything else I have is in storage ready for our upcoming move!
|Boss or Enforcer|
|Boss or Hoodlum|
|Slugger...love this fig!|
|Civilian or Gun Moll|

I'm looking forward to getting the next lot and having enough for a game of Mad Dogs with Guns!

North Star's Dracula's America: Shadows of the West Nickstarter officially goes live on Monday but for those of us who have joined the Dracula's America: Shadows of the West Player's Page on Facebook the page is already live!! If you can't wait, just head on over to the Facebook page here and join up!
There are early bird deals until Wednesday when prices will go up...and there is lots to choose from. If you want all of it then the early bird price is £118 for the lot! Otherwise a book and posse combo will set you back anything from £31.90 to £48.60 depending on the posse and the figures included.
You can also buy all of the figures individually including many from the Artizan Wild West range as well as assorted other figures from a few other ranges...most of which are not normally available individually.
You can apparently play the game as straight Wild West or include the Weird West elements from the book. The posses (each made up of around 10 figs) are Twilight Order (Templars/Monster Hunters), Red Hand Coven (Vampires), Skinwalkers (Indian Shapeshifters), Crossroads Cult (Demon Worshippers), Congregation (Voodoo) and Dark Confederate (Zombie). There is also a further book in the works, Hunting Grounds (due out in Jan 2018), which adds The Forsaken (Cursed 7th Cavalry) and White Dragon Tong.
Already having quite a few Wild West figs, I've jumped on board for the book and some of the more Weird West figs. Really looking forward to this!

I got my Dark Dungeon 4' x 3' gaming mat from the Ceri Design kickstarter last week...and it looks great!
And it fits our kitchen table perfectly. I really need to give it an iron, though...but that too is in storage!
Anyway, I am certainly planning on picking some more up soon!

For £11.99 you get...
You can already buy the book as well as download a pdf of the Savage Core Campaign from the website here.
A bargain, I reckon!

Oh dear! Yet more temptation! Crooked Dice have just shown some pics on their Facebook page of their upcoming Pulp Heroes for their Time Lost Programme Guide.
Wow. Perfect for Lost World and Pulp gaming. The Rod Taylor (The Time Machine is one of my favourite films) and Doug McClure figs are just brilliant!

Wargames Illustrated have their latest Giants-in-Miniature figure up for pre-order here...this time Dunkirk Joe. Would work well for Pulp, VCBW or Campaign Sea Lion games.

Of course, none of this has stopped me getting all excited about various upcoming games. I already picked up Mad Dogs with Guns and a load of Copplestone Gangsters will be heading off to Matt's painting table next week. I've also been getting all enthused about Campaign Sea Lion for Bolt Action...though I have so far managed to stop myself from buying a load of those lovely Footsore and Warlord figs. Not sure how much longer I can restrain myself, though...especially as they just released these beauties...
...which will work brilliantly for Pulp games, too. In fact, I can feel my wallet opening as I type this!
And then there is Dracula's America: Shadows of the West! Due out in August this set of rules does the Weird West...though I have heard it can be played straight Wild West, too, and anything in between. I already have a lovely bunch of Artizan Wild West figs but North Star will once again be producing a range of figs specifically for the game. There have been a few sneak peeks on the Facebook page (here)...
...and they are just superb! I don't think I will be able to resist these, either! And there is already a supplement in the works which is due out in January 2018...Dracula's America: Shadows of the West: Hunting Grounds.
So many cool toys and just not enough time or money!
