Well, I decided to get back into painting up Old West stuff, after a 20+ year absence.  It was the GEG plastic cowboys what done it.  I got a box, put them together, and painted them up.  I also added a couple of kit-bash figs, using WA French Resistance as a base, with GEG plastic cowboy bits and bobs. And, with my take on these lovely figs, away we go...

The first 2 pics are the first 5 of the 10 figs in the GEG box.  The 2nd 2 pics are the other 5.  As mentioned in other threads, the box comes with 10 figs.

The 3rd 2 pics are the WA/GEG mix figs, and the last pic is the lot of 12 all together.

I must say, these figs were a joy to put together and paint.  It would be interesting if GEG did any other plastic sets...

Enjoy!

Yeah great work.  I have two boxes sitting on the shelf...I'm tempted to do a new town if I do new cowboys so it's all on hold right now.

@Elbows:  Yeah, I have several cabins, a barn, and a few out buildings, but no actual town pieces.  I may have to get me a town, as well.  Oh well - it's only money.... :)

@mweaver:  Thanks!

Got a few figures more painted to broaden my little collection.  Getting ready for a FFoL game Monday... an "incident" in the border town of Santo Diablo...

Did up 3 Vaqueros and 3 Plains Warriors, all Knukleduster Miniatures.  I'll do up the other figs from those packs in due time...

Enjoy! - comments, critiques, and questions welcome... :)

Viva Mexico!
Nice paint job on all of them, but I like the Mexicans best.

Thanks, has.been!  I like the Mexican just a bit better too,  But in today's first fight for both of them, the Mexicans faired not so well, and the Warriors did just fine...
