Hello and welcome to another review, this time I have managed to get my hands on the 2 starter sets for Pulp City. A small skirmish game of super heroes…..sorry Supremes battling each other for no other reason heroes and villains need 🙂
Today I have both starter sets to look at, on both sides of the line, the boxes are really nice, well the models come in a white box but the sleeve is really nice..
You get colourful artwork on the back (including info on what you are getting plus the classes of the supremes in each box), while the front shows off the models themselves in some great looking studio colour schemes. Well-presented boxes all round then but now for the exciting bit.
So whats in the boxes then? Well obviously we get shiny models bit of a short review otherwise.. We also get the character cards which have all the stats and unique actions on them. Usually thing nice bright cards that fit into MtG card sleeve.
What is also nice is each box comes with a poster style version of the quick start rules which are enough for you to get on with a game or two. As you don’t need the full book unless you are going to some of the more advance stuff. The poster also works nicely as a way of looking up rules quickly in the heat of battle.
Now for the actual shiny, on the whole the models are one piece metal models, this makes a change but also pleases me. Sometimes you don’t need models to be in a million pieces to give dynamic looking models. For someone who is very adept at gluing himself to various things the less super glue flying around the better
The detail is really nice on the models, they have made sure that the art imitates the model which is nice and they have kept true a scaling of the models.
What I mean by that is each model is slightly different in size which adds to the feel of individuality you would expect from heroes and villains.
Just overall some really nice fun models, sometimes we have some very serious looking models in this hobby and there is nothing wrong with camping it up on an odd occasion.
So overall the models are easy to put together 😉 while still keeping some nice dynamic poses, do they suffer a little from the flatness of one-piece models? Maybe a little bit but the poses are done in such a way that this is not a problem and they are all pretty nice. OK, maybe Wildman is a little odd and out of proportion but that probably works in his favour.
A fun set of models that are going to be fun to paint up in suitable 80s style.
