It's Raining Cats and Cowboys!

A few weeks ago Dave D offered me the chance of getting some of his spare cowboys which I naturally snapped up. Well I now have them in my hands as Lee kindly brought them over Friday night and for only the cost of a coffee.

Three packs of Foundry mounted and dismounted Cowboys still in their blisters these are great as the kids will be playing a few games where one side has to ride off into the sunset. Dave also supplied two more packs that had been taken out of the blisters so I scored five packs making ten mounted and ten dismounted cowboys to add to the table.

What my son loves the most is that two of these boys are holding shotguns. After suffering many a hit from his sisters shotgun he is planning his revenge.

If that was it, it would have been a great deal but Dave also included these eleven cowboys, three from Artizan and eight from Deadmans Hand if memory serves me well. The primed ones may be the first to cross the table though both kids are pushing for others to be done first LOL

Dave also threw in his shotgun templates, searious wound markers (blood splats) and his hit location Cards and activation cards which I need to add images of the finished cowboys.

So thank you very much Dave and I owe you a beer or a coffee(or three) when we meet up again. It's this kind of generosity that makes the community such a great place to be.

    1. When Lee brought them round he repeated a few times that I don't need any more now. I can't wait till he has bought twice as many as I own right now

  4. Ian, you are very welcome. Good to see the lead pile go to a good home. I look forward to seeing this sapling of a project grow.. Now you need to come up with a town name!

    1. We played another game Sunday afternoon. My son won against his sister (his first win of the three games played so far) but yes I think we will have to work on that towns name.

    1. A start indeed. I am back in the grove to an extent. I have started to paint up a few 6mm bits that have been sticking on my table that will allow me to finish a few bases of Naps that will add to my Waterloo commitment
