Hello everyone !

To form the crew of the SS Venture in 1933, what figurines exist apart from those of "Pulp Figures" (which are very good ,but I need some variation…).

These figurines must be compatible with those of "Pulp Figures"!

I also need Thompson M1928 and Mauser Gewehr 98 to equip the disarmed figures.

Thank you !

Brigade Games has several sets of seamen in the "To the Ends of the Earth" range.


They might be a bit slighter than the Pulp Figures minis. Perhaps someone else can comment.

Here is a set of unarmed sailors from Crooked Dice, just paint them to fit the 1930s.

Thank you nnascati and Travellera, there are things usable in these two brands …But I have to find more …

If you want a bigger (inexpensive)crew maybe these can be used:

Oh yesTravellera,thank you, good idea Old Glory, they do not do anything in real Pulp Culture?

Not really pulp but quite close if you look at their ranges for Mexico, Spanish American War and Boxer Reb. Another thought is to go through all Gangster ranges. There you might find quite a few usable figures, some examples:


And these:

Oh, why did I not think about these:

Yes thank you Travellera, but the ideal is really the "Pulp Figures" and the Brigade Games with their sets of seamen in the "To the Ends of the Earth" range.

Nothing others in the genre?

Simply get hold of the 54s? That came with the action figure Toys from the Peter Jackson film. You can get the enitre crew (?), and natives, plus the monsters, Ann.

They are too big …
