Robots filled the pages of the classic pulp magazines of the 1930s. Mechanical creations could be found invading the Earth, threatening humankind, and generally eliminating the universe of its organic pests.
Here is a wonderful gaming sculpt that looks like it stepped out of the pages of those early pulp science adventures.
Although there is no facial expressions on the robot’s
head, the steadily glowing electronic eyes (along with the large ray gun
grasped in its hands) sends the message that it is not a friend.
This game miniature
is on a bit of larger scale. It stands about a full 2 inches (50 mm) from the base to the top of its metal head. But it still works with the standard game figures
. Here is a size comparison with a 25mm scale figure
of Doc Savage
(another fine example of pulp goodness
could be an invader
from outer space
intent on conquering another planet
, or the product of an Earthly mad scientist’s
designs for world domination
. Whichever, it would make a nice classic addition to your game table
