Painting up a random assortment of Pulp themed miniatures I picked up at Historicon last year. I only wish I had bought more. They turned out well. Now I need to find a game for them.

They look good. Game. Might consider something along the lines of Howard Whitehouse's Astounding Tales--an overall plot, and several settings for episodes. This lets you tailor each series of games around the figures and terrain you have. Looking at this bunch, Wheelchair (or Labcoat) assembles our heroes and alerts them to a Cthuloid Plot. They have to secure a map--probably from Tailcoat at a diplomatic function. (Or maybe he just directs them to Feral Druid there, who seems to be holding a map or scroll?) This takes them to Darkest Africa/the Savage Land/the Lost World and so to a cave with the plinths and copies of the Necronomicon and Unaussprechlingen Kulten, not to mention Fearless Leader. This makes your adventuring party Trenchcoat, Sweater, Aviator (their pilot) and Labcoat with Tools, joined later by Tarzan/Ka-zar.

Add Nazis/North Koreans/dinosaurs and Diplomatic Security to taste, and depending on what you have in stock. For this sort of thing, you can never have too many thugs, Nazis or dinosaurs, and you always want a jungle, ruins in the desert, a few alleyways, a cave and an Underground Lair.

Agreed. They did turn out well. That Tarzan is a nice piece.
