I seem to have generated a few draft posts/photo’s of things I did a long time ago which I have not shown so far. So this is a quick post of some figs like that, as I have had these figures painted for a while and really should get them up here on my blog. With the people working a lot more from home/social isolation which we are experiencing now I thought I’d get this out, as a little more content on my blog.
These are more generic Cowboys done for Wild West and Pulp games. The figures are all based on pennies like the rest of my wild west miniatures. I have to say that the varnish on these seems to have been a little strong/thick, so you’ll have to forgive that in some of the models. They do not look as bad as this in reality but I don’t think these are some of my best work (either painting or photo’s) either, so its good to just slip this in here and get them shown. Still they will work ok for gaming.
All these models are mostly Old Glory figures. I painted these at the cottage, which is one reason why the faces are a little stark, but that is also from the lack of skill on my part. Still they are good for table top games and look ok when in the game.
As you can see they all have a definite green theme – and that’s for a reason. That allows them all the be in one specific gang for fights. The colour is one which is likely not that common in ‘the west’ for hats, but green is a fairly easy dye – one reason we see a lot of it in the middle ages so they are not that unlikely. Hollywood likes to use green tones for middle ages not the west.
So there we are. Another set of 9 toys ready for the table. These are good for all sorts of Wild West and even Pulp gaming. I have a whole pile of terrain or these guys to fight over, but it will be a while before I start putting that together I think.
