VBCW: Pulp Figures Scots

Filed under: Crucible Crush, Pulp Figures, VBCW — gisby @ 16:01

(Apologies to Bob Murch, I originally titled this as ‘Pulp Miniatures’ – Sorry)

I started collecting forces and terrain for VBCW gaming after reading AAR’s on the ‘View From the Hill‘ blog, and many discussions with the author.

I recently picked up several packs of figures appropriate for VBCW from Pulp Figures. Mainly known for packs of Pulp Personalities, they are also a good source for various Inter-War troops that cannot be found elsewhere.


These are my Highlanders, painted to match the old Britains Swoppets and Herald Khaki Infantry. I loved them in my youth, and I love the look even now. They are fielded in a 10-man unit.


These are the poses used, without duplicates. They are well-detailed, essentially flash-free, and are a joy to paint. They scale well with my various other VBCW figures.


I also have a Tommy Gunner and a Vickers gunner – I can swap one or both into the unit to give it a bit of ‘punch.’


Otherwise they are attached to the Headquarters.

In case it’s not obvious, I recommend these figures to one and all.

Bob has also sculpted a set of 8th Army miniatures that match perfectly in scale and style, that I will be using to make Spode’s Black Shorts. These are available from Crucible Crush.

Figures used:

PBT 12 Highland Infantry Command

PBT10 Highland Infantry Rifles

PBT11 Highland Special Weapons

PHP18 Rugged Sons of the Empire
