Film Crew and a French Cyclist

A couple more Pulp/WW2-ish era odds and ends…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

This film crew is from Pulp Figures. I’ve had them for a few years now, but just got around to them. Not sure why it’s taken so damn long – they were such a snap to paint up!?

This cycliste is from a new(-ish) pack of French Civilians from West Wind Productions. Honestly, this figure is the only reason I bought the pack. (Bit of a bike geek). Oh the other figures are fine and will come in handy for something or other… but I totally wouldn’t have bought them if it hadn’t been for this chap.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Japanese. Then probably some Canadians. Elves are still lurking on the painting desk… but I seem to be successfully managing to completely ignore them.


  1. The film crew is great colour. I recall a set of rules (Peter Pig maybe?) where a film crew can be a random event. Maybe it was a 2-hour Wargames set?

  2. Film crews show up as part of Savage Worlds: Showdown's freak events (depending on the setting) or can be thrown into an adventure as a "complication" (usually characters are required to make sure they don't get hurt - the film crew has it's own agenda, though, and will try to move towards the hottest action unless characters are detailed to hold them back...).

  3. Nice work!
    I always enjoy these sorts of "odd" (in terms of "not your usual soldierly or adventurer types") figures.

  4. I'm a total sucker for the odd - often entirely useless for game purposes - figures. Luckily for some DBA-type armies I can use them as "camp followers"...
