The GI Joe Rise of Cobra line has a neat miniature called the Mole Pod. I can't decide if I'm going to use it for Pulp or VSF.
I found a bunch of cheap ($2.25 a package) furniture for 25/28mm miniature gaming. There is little available from gaming companies but you don't get much choice and it costs alot. The furniture is generally good for the late 1800s to 1930s time period.
I used to run VSF games on a regular basis, but the group I game with now isn't into miniature gaming. Here are the After Action Reports of a couple games I ran a couple years ago using the GASLIGHT rules system.
The first was the Battle of the Bend.
The second was the Battle of Pochantus
I miss VSF miniature gaming. I have enough stuff for both a Union and a Confederate force. Anyone in Southern Illnois play VSF?
In Southern Illinois, in the early Twenties, two groups of gangsters/moonshiners had their own armored cars. One gang even tried aerial bombing!!!
A couple more airplane models that are good for Pulp gaming.
The first is the Franklin Mint's Junker F-13. This wonderful model comes both as a landplane and a floatplane. The only problem is that it is usually expensive ($50 plus and usually $100 plus) and I can find alot of other cool Pulp stuff to buy for that price.
The other is a Lockheed Orion, another good standard Pulp airplane. made by made by Liberty Classics or Spec Diecast.
First, here are some of the Airplanes I have next to miniatures. The Northrup Gamma and Keystone Loening are by Ertl. The Lockheed Electra (Jr?) I bought in a Big Lots years ago.
Ertl airplane banks often come in scales useful for 25/28mm gaming. They can be had fairly cheap (I usually pay less than $20 including shipping). The only problems is that they are not all in the same scale with some being too large (1/32 scale). Here is a listing of those in roughly 1/43rd to 1/48th scale.
Lockheed Electra Jr. of the late 30's
1929 Buhl CA6 Spokane Sungod. A strange looking biplane with an enclosed cabin.
Keystone Loening Amphibian. Good for getting you in and out of all kinds of terrain.
1929 Lockheed Air Express. Strangely the Lockheed Vega, a very similiar plane, is in 1/32 scale.
Gruman Goose Amphibian. Came out in 1940, so it is a little late for Pulp but it is the same plane as in the Tales of the Gold Monkey TV show.
1929 Curtis Robin. Another little known plane, but as the choice of Wrongway Corrigan it warrants a look.
I am finally biting the bullet and changing my site over to a proper blog. This first will be a listing of my Pulp After Action Reports using the Where Heroes Dare system.

I've been gaming since the 1970's and even wrote some RPG adventures in the 80's for the Judges Guild. It seems that I can only get in miniatures is gaming at cons, but I do regularly play boardgames and RPGs.
