So, I have based up two of the West Wind "Road Kill" Cops - they were TERRIBLE to clean up. Miscast, loads of flash - and the metal is ridiculously soft (for those of you with Kids - BEWARE they have a very high Lead content).
Of course I still have a Pack of Pulp City Sentry Bots, and some Necro-GI's to go. But I have been looking around for "options" for other Minion Types.
Of course as far as Vigillantes go, we have the official Pulp City Miniatures - HOWEVER there are only two poses. So how about other alternatives?
The Spinespur range has "Thug" Packs, they come with a selection of Weapons - but ignoring the edged weapons if you use the Baseball Bat and Pipe - you have some "Dark" Vigilantes.
Hasslefree do a GREAT range of Adventurers that have a MYRIAD of uses for Pulp City Miniatures (and Heroes too potentially).
HFA036 "Baker" has different hand options, so can be given a hand weapon or a Pistol - so would be great as either Vigilante or a Hired Gun.
HFA045 "Joe" is a "classic" Punk, with a Baseball Bat - what more could you want!
HFA052 "Dynamic Ray" is a classic "Shaun of the Dead" dude with a Cricket Bat - excellent!
Last (but not least) in our Hasslefree Vigilante selection is HFA026 "Tony" and overweight (like me LoL) Dude with a Cellphone and a Golf Club!
Hasslefree also have a decent selection of miniatures that would be perfect for Hired Guns - for both Heroes and Villains!
Plus, they have this Dude - would he make a perfect Savage Dragon or what!
HFZ211 "Mutant Joe"
Moving on now to Copplestone Castings - they have a GREAT selection of Cops (which I wish I had bought now LoL), but they also have some fantastic Hired Guns - even some with a few surprises!
Copplestone Castings KKBB104 "Guards in Berets" From the "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" Range would make excellent Evil Hired Gun Minions.
For the Heroes we have a decent selection over at Copplestone too, not only Cops but suitable Hired Guns.
From the Future Wars Range - the FW20 "Citizen Militia 1" & FW21 "Citizen Militia 2" would be perfect to represent your average "Joe" who's taken up arms to help in the fight against evil!
Artizan Designs have a couple of interesting bits and pieces too!
Their KKB204 "Guards" & KKB206 "Guards II" would make great "S.H.I.E.L.D." Type Hired Guns for your Good Guy Supremes!
Next Time I shall be looking at Terrain Options for your Games of Pulp City!
