Really looking forward to seeing how the town (great name by the way) comes out
I am sure that with your master touch they'll look better than I could ever have managed

Looking good young Paolo!

Excellent start! You already have more buildings than my own Schitte Creek  lol I shall be watching this thread with interest. I love all of the Wild West projects on this board. Everyone is different and great in its own way. Great for inspiration.

Edit: only just noticed the name if your town lol very similar to my own. Must be neighbours on the same creek.

Cheers, Gutbukkit.
Great minds, ya know... ;)

You are right about the variety on this board, plenty of wonderful ideas to steal!
 :D



Really looking forward to seeing how the town (great name by the way) comes out
I am sure that with your master touch they'll look better than I could ever have managed

Cheers, mate.
I am glad that you approve of what I am doing with your lovely scratchbuilds.
I will try not to destroy your fine work.
 :)



Awesome stuff.  Can't wait to see how this pans out!

Thank you, sir.
We shall initially be using LotOW for our campaign games, but I do intend to use SNS for some multi-player fun games when all the lads are around.



Looking good young Paolo!

... Which is not to say I won't be tempted into a game with yours and your grandpa's  ;)

Thank you, Riccardo
I shall put that idea to Gramps when he wakes up from his nap!
 :D

 lol
I think that they have your number, mate.

Spot on, Doc!
That does seem to mean that I cannot build a paddle steamer, though...... :(

 lol
You do make me laugh, Treebeard.
I shall only be shamelessly stealing ideas from everyone else.
 :D



Hmmm.

 lol

SEE!




The Bank is almost there.
I shall try to get a picture up tonight.

Hi fella,

I see what you mean, these look awesome. I hope you did not pay "A fist full of dollars" for these... :D.

After watching all of Deadwood I have some ideas about how I would like my cowboys to look, and what I would like in my prospector gang.

Allo, mate!
I paid a fair price for these, both parties were happy with the outcome, so all were happy.

As for the Prospector Gang: I like that idea.
 8)

Another gang to add to the mix.
Your Prospectors, smokezombie is doing Mexican Bandito's and I shall do some honest Lawmen and Townsfolk at the beginning.
I say at the beginning, as everyone wants to do an Outlaw gang of some sort, don't they?  :D

Not sure what Bert is doing, but he is definitely up to doing something...
 :D

We shall be starting off with LotOW and seeing how we get on with that set, purely as three of us already have the rules.
I intend to use Elbows Shoot N Skeedaddle rules for when we have more players and want to make it more fun and less serious.


Anyways, I finished the Bank today.
Then I took some pictures and could not get the damn flash to stop going off.
I carried on regardless, but they all came out crap.
I shall try again tomorrow when the Missus is there to show the trained monkey (me... ::)) how to use the camera properly.

Here is one of the photos, darkened and turned into monochrome with the Edit function so that it does not look so bad.




Just to prove that I did get the bugger finished.

Well I was beginning to wonder.

It looks good in B&W, now looking forward to seeing it in Glorious Texhnicolour(like what the Westerns you watched in your youf were filmed in)
