Old West Gaming (Part 2)

Annoyingly I am still not feeling any real urge to paint! Still, I have just about managed to motivate myself to finish off a few more Old West style buildings. I have concentrated on the plain wooden stuff for now rather than the nicer/more interesting buildings I have, which I will save until the painting bug returns, for now at least it means I have just enough buildings/street furniture for a small game.

I also though I'd post the selection of Hired Guns/Legends for our Legends of the Old West campaign, my mate painted up for me a good few years ago now, apologies for the poor pics, I found it difficult to get good light on the mini's without it shining back.

US Marshall

Former Cavalryman

Soiled Dove



The Unknown Gunslinger

Mountain Man


I'm currently looking over some of my unfinished stuff to see if anything takes my interest and gets me motivated to paint, hopefully back on the brushes soon!

Old West Gaming (Part 1)

Apologies for the lack of recent post to those few of you that follow this Blog, due to a case of Tennis Elbow and ennui, I haven't done much in the way of painting recently, but am slowly forcing myself to pick the brushes back up and get some stuff done.

So with that in mind I decided to re-visit my 28mm(or thereabouts) old West stuff that had been languishing in a box for the last 3 years.

 Whilst I have a fully painted gang of desperadoes they were in dire need of a touch up having been through the wars somewhat, and as I had binned all my Old West scenery(predominately printed out card stock buildings that had gotten knackered through bad storage and time) I really needed to work on some scenery.

First up is the gang, which just needed some touching up and a quick re-base to make them more consistent with each other(minis from Dixon, Foundry and Artisan):

Secondly, I have started to replace the now disposed of cardstock scenery with some MDF stuff from the excellent TTCombat range:

Finally a little bit of street furniture, the fences are from RedVectors the other bits from various places:

I have about 10 more gunslingers to do, plus a similar amount of citizens and hired guns, plus a load more buildings so hopefully this project will get me back at it.

Blood Bowl (VII) - The Undead

Well I have finally picked my brushes up after almost two months of no painting and I have managed to finish off my Blood Bowl (Shambling)Undead team, that's 5 of 7 finished, so without further ado, here they are(all minis are GW apart from the dwarf with an axe in his head which is from Greebo):

And as I have to have Staff/Side-line figures these days, I did a coach and a cheerleader(minis from Reaper, turn markers etc are GW bits).

With them out of the way I'm determined to clear the stuff on my painting desk before doing anything else, so I am now on with a bunch of 15mm and 6mm fantasy stuff, plus a few Blood Bowl Star Players, oh and some 2mm ECW stuff, all of which will be the subjects of the next few(hopefully more regular) posts.
