My town name is Jamestown.
 Named after my boy.
Yearly painting challenges only show me how useless I am at painting...

But could not make the sickle yield."

Well, I've got Ashbury, Colorado. But my set-up changes from game to game and it consists of papercraft buildings from Whitewash City. However, now that I've discovered MDF buildings I'm going to build a TOWN!!!!  lol

My Town will be called Malice (of possibly Malice Flats) inspired by Paul Weller of course, and I promise to post pictures next time I play...

I have two names for my towns (which I can hardly call towns at the moment as they only consist of a few buildings). Schitte Creek and Bull's Deep, two rival towns in a story I'm writing. Here are the few buildings I have actually finished, more in the works.

I once looked up real genuinely odd Old West town names and came up with this list.

Gobbler’s Crossing
Bloody Springs
Beaverlick
Smut Eye
Blue Balls
Goobertown
Yeehaw Junction
Benevolence
Licking
Cumming
Climax
Conception
Beer Bottle Crossing
French Lick
Big Beaver Lick
Knob Lick
Spread Eagle
Aimwell
Hot Coffee
Knockemstiff
Idiotville
Windy Bottom
Ding Dong

The mind boggles at some of these.

^That lists looks similar to places we have (mostly) in Lapland (our own "wild" frontier).

I used to have a village called Hickville, not that far from Idiotville on your list :)

Now the new place is called Dos Cruces, no pics to show yet though  :'(

My old west town is Calamity also located in Colorado, somewhere along the front range towards the southern border of the state. Here is a peak at what Calamity might look like when I get that far. Each model building represents a specific building that I already own, except for one that I'm designing and will be building from scratch. This is, currently, a mix of Battle Flag, Sarissa Precision, Knuckleduster/Tri-City Laser, Gamecraft Miniatures and Aetherworks kits.

If you reduce it to this it is pretty much my "Rattlesnake".

Sadly, I know where Drakes Branch is. Not much happening. :-[

Ok, so its not clapboard and shingles and its named after a real historical town

San Antonio de Bejar in Texas.

Here is a small part on a 4ftx4ft



A couple showing some more (but not all) of the buildings on a 6ft x 4ft





In total it covers a 4ft x 10ft or 6ft x 8ft.

Hickory Flat

I needed a name so I googled "old west town names" and one of the first hits was a site with a name randomizer. Hickory Flat caught my eye. So here is in short the story of the birth of name of my town   :D



Regards,
Za
