I've painted up some Peter Pig cowboys recently to use as pretty counters on the game Gunslinger by Avalon Hill. Gunslinger is a fast paced Western-era shootout game, and it doesn't use dice. Instead all results are determined through cross referencing the information found on the card at the top of the draw pile.
|My Marshall and Sheriff with mandatory big moustaches and both carrying invisible bag pipes. Or they both have a stitch.|
|I have two identical chaps in the same pose (but bent by me for variety) and painted in similar colours as generic cowboys/bandits/gunslingers.|
|Rifles are deadly in gunslinger and far outdistance the best handguns.|
I'm going to do a few more when I next need an escape from germans but I'll try and play a simple game of Gunslinger and put it up. I also purchased this rather fine windmill last week for 20% of it's original price. I know it is 1/87 but was wondering if I took the top rail off and modified the doors whether it would look ok.
I've nearly finished some barbed wire and other barriers and they'll be up next. As a final note I went into my FLGS this morning and picked up Human Fighter Male v2 from Otherworld Miniatures. They are nice, classic D&D art fantasy but would mix well with most things. The sculpt is crisp and the pose believable. He'll be lucky enough to get based ASAP as I haven't painted 28mm in ages, especially not a miniature that just made me buy it. He will adventure into many AHQ dungeons.
|It's been a long time since I've seen a miniature and impulse bought it at anything other than car boots and bring and buys.|
Thanks for taking the time,
