Dead Man's Hand Cowboys

I found another two prepped Cowboys a few weeks ago so I slipped them into the painting queue just to get them out of the way. I did not get them varnished for the game on Monday night so they have yet to get on the table.

I just did a basic job on them, single base colour and an ink wash. That said, on this guy I added sweat stains as the light blue shirt looked vulnerable to such.

Nothing over fancy with the figures but I like the pose and level of detail. Both figures will either be used by the kids or can make up my group when I get to play against one or both of them. 

This figure has the least detail showing of all the Western figures I own as the long coat covers mose of the figure. Still he is just cannon fodder anyway.

Lastly a shot of the new guys with the gallows to help give you an idea of scale of the gallows. Quite a large piece and does gain your attention.

I just need to clear the table of the six Prussian Battalions and a few other odds and ends then I will get my Santa Clause finished, want to do a good job so that it looks the part. Talking of Christmas all Secret Santa's should now have their targets, if you do not then get in touch with Cath if you have her email,, if not let me know and I will pass you over.

  1. Amazing what life just a couple of models can make to a piece of terrain. I've just put on a "Rio Bravo" for background noise now just because of this post - though probably "Hang'em high" would be more appropriate. My best to Cath for sorting out the Secret Santa.

    1. Figures help scale the piece but also in this case it's helped set off the figures

      Cath is a good one passed on your wishes

    1. Well they should get there fairly soon as either the kids or me and Lee will get them into play once I have a few more buildings finished
