Recent Discoveries From Faraway Lands

Amazing discoveries brought to us by intrepid adventurers to faraway lands!

So, recently I managed to make a few new additions to the old Pulp collection. These are two pieces that I have really been looking to grab for a long time.

The first is the amazing Allosaurus from Papo. To call this a toy almost seems insulting as the level of detail in the sculpt and paint job are as good as many gaming models out there. The picture shows the dino in the stock paint job right off the shelf. It stands easily on its own two feet and has an articulated jaw.


While the listing in any catalog makes this thing seem huge (11") it really doesn't end up too huge at all and is a respectable size for any Pulp genre monstrosity. The figures on the table with it are 28mm Artizan and Copplestone miniatures.


The other new item is a wonderfully painted and sculpted animal tank decoration. This great, ruined head seems just perfect for adventure in exotic lands and, except for the flat brown color inside the break, seems to need no further painting to use it on the table. The piece is sculpted all around with a walled surface in the back.


While these models aren't the sorts of things to appear in every Pulp Alley game I run, they are definitely fine accents that will spice up more exotic adventures.

  2. Papo is awesome. I have two Trex from them and a stegasaurus. may have to get this alice too. I like the Buddha head- I'm hoping one of my pet stores will get that in.

  3. The Papo Trex is cool IF you can find the right version.

    Unfortunately all I seem to find is the ugly brown one that lacks all of the interesting living color of the more green/grey version.

  4. Neat! Now, some ferocious monkeys on the idol and rocks, and there will be a rumble in the jungle.

  5. I need to find some good savage looking, but not huge monkeys for the Blood Monkeys in one of my scenarios.

  6. I've often wondered about fish/reptile tank scenery as tabletop scenery... It runs a bit pricey, but it's not that bad compared to actual gaming pieces, especially large ones. This one is phenomenal!
