Black Scorpion Cowboys

It's been a long time since I last painted a cowboy figure. In fact it's been over thirty years but given the fee for the Painting Challenge I had reason to wave a brush at a few just because.


First up is the entry fee, this was actually from one of the Tombstone packs rather than a stand alone figure. It was kind of funny as I did not select a figure for Curt, rather I realised part way through that this one was going to be sent as I painted him. By far he is the most colourful of the lot.


I also bought the outlaw pack, though surprised there is only the one pack. I painted all of these with the same colour long coat to identify them. These will be used by my daughter in games she will be playing against her brother, that should be fun.

Some of these guys are packing serious hand cannons though the one with the shotgun is more like me. They were relatively quick to paint. Dave D recommended the Black Scorpion figures and I was pleased he did as they are a joy to paint.

My son needed something to take on his sister so here they are. A more mixed bag with the figure on the far left an extra Lawman figure I bought as a single with a separate arm. I am really hoping the kids like playing cowboys and will be using Dave D's rules for the games. If all goes well, the future will have more cowboys in it. Well it's assured really as Lee want's a go with them after playing at Blog Con. 

So thanks to the challenge and Blog-Con I am at the start of a new diversion, so it's still early January and it looks like I have two new periods to add to the one new I started last year, well bought into last year at any rate.

    1. Dave those I think would make the kids really love the game. I am sure they will like it anyway but something about cards not dice would send them into a tizz. We will have to talk about what I can trade back to you, especially if the cowboys are still available
