I’ve not looked into the rules a great deal but they do seem very interesting from what I have seen.
The miniatures though are fantastic!
To the best of my knowledge, they’re the only superhero skirmish game out there except for that heroclix thingie with the horrible minis… They started out small online, and are getting bigger. I say, more power to them !
If you like the game, support it !
The other game I hear mentioned a lot amongst superhero skirmish fans is one called “Supersystem” by Four-Color Figures.
The main differences between the two, this answers Siygess’ question below, is that while Pulp City is focused on pre-made characters Supersystem is very freeform and allows for huge levels of customisation, one of those “use any model in your collection” type games.
Pulp City is probably a bit easier to run games of, you get the rules, models and stat cards and off you go, and of course has the stunning model range going for it, of course you could use those models for Supersystem as well.
All this is based on a very vague knowledge but certainly both systems seem very solid in their own ways.
Thanks for the tip! Although it’s only 86 pages, the SuperSystem digital download is a steal at $10 and I’m really liking the character generation rules. Hopefully Pulp City will implement something similar in the future!
Since this is a skirmish game I would imagine the answer is no.. but does Pulp City contain rules for building your own heroes / villains from a pool of powers and abilities?
Nope. It does have some rules to create your own minions though!
Thought I’d also drop in a wee link for the Lead Adventure forums Superhero board, certainly many people far more knowledgeable than myself on the subject there! http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?board=14.0
these would also work well for hero rpg games… like FATE based Pulp rpg “Spirit of the Century” or the more tradional sort
