Rest assured, there's more to come....


Including I think a china town quarter!  Just found these civilians from Obelisk, fantastic!

Cheers Todd.

Just messing about with offcuts and I reckon this may make a half decent wind pump.  Only trouble now, is I don't have a clue how to make the sails!!!   Oh well, best get checking the net...



Edit:

Genius!   I remembered I had a bag of old pc fan units - knew they'd come in one day!   Now to figure out how to use it...






Edit:

Et voila!









Edit:  Painted (still drying!)

This is absolutely great, Digits!

I rarely visit this forum, but after passing by 4 threads with marvelous builds, I think I've changed my opinion on the subject :)

Excellent horse, and nicely painted. I like the wind mill too - I see lots of them in this part of the country.

Cheers guys.

Quick hand swap (Foundry about the right size) on one of the great Westwind nuns and hey presto!  Sister Sara.  One of my favourite westerns.

Useful to note, any one of the four nuns in the pack could be converted to a gunslinger.  Some are very animated indeed.

That's a great idea, Digits, wonderfully executed. Now all you need is a couple of mules...
 I have plans to have an all-girl LotOW posse, and this is a great idea to fill out the ranks. Give one a shotgun, and she could even be useful for anything from Pup to Cthulhu to Post-Apocalypse.
Brilliant!

Only one mule.  The second was a reference to Hogan (Clint) himself.

Yup, definitely 4 nice figures in the set, it would be easy to convert all four I think if you needed them.

Just goes to show how long it's been since I saw the movie - although finding a mini to represent Clint is probably easier than finding a second mule! My personal favourite (although it's Clint from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly), is the Artizan one. Great mini. Must paint mine up - along with some gun-totin' nuns!

Have you seen the Ebob miniature?  A little gaunt but very sweet figure.

BTW - Just ordered Rules with no name for reference (we use our own version) from Wargames Foundry as they are doing ALL books half price right now.  Further more, order yourself paints / minis too and it will be post free!!

"Texas has a whorehouse in it!  Lord have mercy on our souls..........."


Most of you will never have heard that line from the musical but tough.


It's been a while hombres, but I'm finally getting round to giving VC some love.   First up is this den of eniquity - "Dolly's" - VC's first official cathouse.  I've a few new figures to paint for it including bar staff and working girls but you get the picture.  I still need to make a sign for it too.

I've suffered abuse for having fielded a half painted Mexican gang for the last few years, so I finished them too.

El Porco


Groggy


Cuccillo


Tomasco


El Stupido - their infamous leader.
