Painted Plastic GEG Gunfighters
« on: July 09, 2021, 01:26:46 PM »
I picked up a box of the Great Escape Games plastic gunfighters recently,  stuck them together and sent them off to an old friend, Phil Turner, for painting.







I am very happy with how they turned out.

They look good, very nice paint jobs.

Do the 6 guns look a bit big (or are you just pleased to see me)?

If you think the guns look big, you should see their Sheriffs badges......... :o

The pistols on most ranges look on the large size to me.

Nicely done figures, those.  Thanks for sharing.  Mine arrived right before we left for a two-week vacation; hopefully I can start assembling some soon.

Nice!

I have a review of the set on RPG.net : https://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/18/18968.phtml

Something I like about the figures is that you can make an unarmed figure from the sprue, as well as an objective market. The guy with the rope has the rope stuck with sticky tack, so you can replace the rope with dynamite or something else. Probably only important to us sticklers who gotta have the mini show their loadout...!

My DIY Contrast mix:
* White-primed miniature lightly pre-inked in a dark shade.
* 1 drop acrylic ink in a small pot of paint (eg. children's craft paint). Do not mix.
* Dip the brush in the ink. As you paint, you can dip into the paint to make the layer more opaque.

Nice figs!

Like the idea of unarmed figures from that set.  May have to pick up another box...

They are a bit big.  Seen that problem with many, including the company with the "design your own figure" (forgot the name).

No way the smoke wagons will fit in their holsters.  Much like the park bench/surfboard sized swords we see on fantasy figs.  My favorite is the scabbard worn on the back holding a sword that would need more than double length arms to draw it.
