Pulp City new edition on Kickstarter

For those of you who haven't seen them before, Pulp City has a pretty groovy range of super hero minis. They've been around for quite a while, and really have some of the best range of supers out there.

Fairy riding a turtle

This is a mini that started life as a resin statue. I've done a few of these, and I find that they can turn out pretty nice.
