Hi there. In anticipation of the release of Osprey's new "Pulp!" skirmish game, I've decided to start collecting 28mm – 32mm figures for this era.

There are TONS of classic figures out there that have been around for decades, from many well-known manufacturers. Those are great. However I'd like to see if there are some manufacturers out there creating new Pulp-era figures using modern techniques. Can anyone refer me to a few, please?

What do you mean by "modern techniques"?

Computer-aided design, 3d stereo lithography, resin, that kind of thing. The kind of techniques used by the "newfangled" miniatures manufacturers such as Black Scorpion, Kingdom Death, Wargame Exclusive, and Raging Heroes. As opposed to the classic technique of designing a master using greenstuff over a metal armature, and then using that master to spin-cast miniatures in pewter.

Zephyr, I'm pretty sure this is a sausage thing. Find well-sculpted, properly cast miniatures, and don't ask any questions about what went into the making of them. Suppose you don't like the answers?

Yeah see that's why I kept my original details vague. I didn't want people obsessing on the details. OK, so let's try a new criteria. I'm looking for "Pulp era 28mm-32mm miniatures designed within the last couple of years."

You need look no further than the excellent Pulp Miniatures range from Bob Murch.

Yeah, I saw those on my google searches. They're pretty good. But still not quite what I'm looking for. The sculpts and poses definitely radiate that old-school, flat-pose, 1990s Ral Partha vibe.

Anything more dynamic out there?

Crooked Dice has some good pulp minis made recently.

You could also do well with Cthulhu death may die. The minis are great.

Ah now those "Marketmagique" ones look interesting. I didn't think to check Etsy. Thanks, Saltflats.

What new Osprey's "Pulp!" skirmish game?

QUATERMASS03 Sep 2022 7:11 a.m. PST

Never mind
Cool getting

If you are looking to 3D print miniatures, MyMiniFactory has a lot of Pulp style figures. Even if you don't print them yourself, Etsy will probably have a shop that does print the MMF designer's work.
