Here are Mick's write-up and photos from his Pulp Alley games in Bristol over the weekend. Definitely worth sharing -

"Had a great day at Reveille in Bristol, lots of interest in Pulp Alley and plenty of volunteers to play as well :) Warmington-on-Seas finest managed to win each game with only Pike being captured in one game (this could have been down to my compatriots playing the Germans in each game and not changing his tactics at all…).

There were three downed German aircrew which were the plot points at the start of each game but I made a small rule change, health became courage so if a character fails his final check rather than being taken out of the game he surrenders to the nearest opposition character giving that side an extra plot point.

The Gallant defenders of Britains shores.

The German U-boat crew.

The downed German aircrew.

The field of battle. There were three perilous terrain areas, the muddy field in front of the farm, the field full of cows and finally the old monastery ruins.

Walmington-on-Seas start the search for the downed airmen.

Captain Mainwaring convinces a pilot and his associate that surrendering would be the best option.

After a hail of fire coming his way a U boat crewman surrenders.

Corporal Jones escorts prisoners away.

Private Godfery escorts another prisoner.

'Would you mind awfully going this way?'

Private Walker has a quick smoke while escorting a prisoner.

All the prisoners about to be put in Jonesy's lorry.

Wish I could have been in 2 places at once on Sunday!

Great looking game. Any chance of sharing the leagues?

Pulp Girl02 Dec 2014 8:43 a.m. PST

Thanks, guys. I'm glad you liked it.

@ Norrins – I'll ask Mick if he can share the Pulp Alley league rosters he used.

Very, very good Pulp Girl. I've got some Dad's Army stuff myself but haven't used them very much, but this could see the dust being blown off them.

Dead cool tractor, where did get that thing?

Excellent job! :O)

Nicely done, Mila. You and your dad always do a good job.

Pulp Alley02 Dec 2014 10:12 p.m. PST

It's cool seeing how this scenario played like an episode of 'Dad's Army'. It's a great old series.

Thanks for posting this Mila and the comments, apologies for not replying sooner but I've only just seen the thread….

The tractor is made by Universal Hobbies, there's plenty of different ones available on ebay. As for rosters I did special ones for each Dads Army character to make them like they are in the tv show.

Very nice: who makes the U-Boat crew?


mashrewba15 Dec 2014 1:06 p.m. PST

"Don't tell him Pike!"

Mick A15 Dec 2014 3:44 p.m. PST

The u-boat crew are made by Artizan, Grey a Wolves from their Thrilling Tales range.

alan L16 Dec 2014 4:14 a.m. PST

Mick, many thanks.

Mashrewba: very good!

I see a new Dads' Army film is in the course of production.

Looks like a very enjoyable game -- fun figures, a fun idea (would have made a terrific episode), excellent terrain, and even a dog going about his business!

Fantastic – I love love love the versatility and sheer fun of Pulp Alley. Brilliantly executed!

Pulp Alley29 Dec 2014 2:13 p.m. PST

Thanks Goshawk! We're glad you're enjoying Pulp Alley. We really liked seeing your Old West game.
