  1. Deadlands is a series of Role Playing Games based around alternative history, with the major change taking place on July 3rd, 1863. This change, called The Reckoning, made the US Civil War grind to a halt, resulted in half of California fall into the sea, and had a new miracle substance called Ghost Rock revolutionize technology. The game has used different rules systems; including the original "classic" system, Savage Worlds, a new system that is/was releasing soon, a d20 conversion, and had a GURPS port. The Weird West - Beginning in 1876, players would wander around the Weird West, ful
  2. I have been working on my wild west town of Calamity for a long time. I have managed to acquire a number of different rules for Wild West miniatures during the course of working through the build. I recently did a review of the different rule sets that I have managed to accumulate over the last couple of years. I thought some of you might be interested in seeing some of the myriad of rules that are out there for the wild west. These posts aren't reviews in the sense of whether I like the rules or not but more of a breakdown on how the game works and its basic mechanics. http://wargames
  3. Okay, so this isn't so much a "conversion" as it is an "appropriation." I had #77470 "Elthin Bluesteel, Gunslinger" (Pathfinder Bones) in my box o' Kickstarter Bones, while I was digging through to find anything that might even remotely look appropriate for a "Wild West" scenario. Sure, he's got some crazy boots, a big ol' dagger, and some sort of leather armor layered thing going on with his torso area, but he's got a gun, a cowboy hat, and a drape to one side that feels kind of Eastwood-ish to me. He also suffers from a wee bit of "melty face," as there's next-to-no definition
  4. Found this and thought I'd pass on: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/highnoongame/high-noon-a-wild-west-combat-tactical-board-game/description FYI the game components graphic near the top show what you get if you go "all in" NOT what's in a standard box.
  5. “Off to off the wizard” The figures are from Reaper Bones KS3, “Chronoscope Wild West Oz”. Since they all were armed, I see this as a sort of hit squad, hence the title. I based them on 30mm round display bases from Reaper, and I 3d Printed a 20mm round in a similar style for Toto. Since not only the Tin Man, but also the flying monkey are obvious metal robots, I think “Weird West Oz” or even “Steampunk Oz” would be a more fitting moniker. The miniatures are made in the slightly harder Bonesium, henceforth to be known as Better Bones™. Since the third Bones kickstar
  6. This past week I completed the last of the four hero figures from the Bones 3 Kickstarter Wild West Wizard of Oz set: the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Lion, and Dorothy & Toto. (Still have the Wicked Witch and the Flying Monkey to do) This was a really fun set to do, and it had some interesting interpretations of the classic characters. Also, I was lucky enough to get a chance to already use them as my gang in a post-apocalyptic game of "This is Not a Test". For the full painting articles and more photos, please see my Bones painting blog linked in my signature.
  7. This is a boss character from the skirmish game - Wild West Exodus. At some point I need to get round to painting more of these.
  8. Completed another couple of Malifaux models: I've never been great at freehand, but I wanted to try anyway some kind of tattoo/warpaint... Result is kinda mediocre, but overall I'm not too displeased As usual, C&C will be appreciated More pics on my blog: gabbigames.wordpress.com
  9. I'm still contemplating exactly what I want my saloons for Calamity to like. In the meantime I decided that something a bit more complicated was called for. This is the "Hardware" store, I'm not sure it will remain a hardware store in the end but for now its a convenient handle. Still in the construction phase but the light at the end of the tunnel is starting to get bigger. Here is a link to the last installment on my blog: http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2016/01/building-calamity-27-hardware-store.html
  10. This is the 2nd row house for my western town of Calamity and I finished it off over the weekend. I tried out a couple of different techniques and materials but overall the build is almost the same as the first row house I built. Primary components are; foamed PVC sheets and commercial parts for the doors and windows. I used a wood shingle for the roof which lent itself to slightly different style of weathering than I use on a paper or cardstock shingle. I'm still up in the air on the usefulness of chipping fluid to create chipped paint and a lot of the chips are actually painted on. Another c
  11. This week I completed the Ellen Stone, Cowgirl figure as I begin working on the Chronoscope set from the Bones I Kickstarter. This figure is notorious for it's missing nose; however, I wanted to see if with generous shadow and highlight, could get her looking more normal in her face. Also, as I studied how I wanted to paint her, I thought about painting the shirt white; and as I thought this it occurred to me that it might be neat opportunity to try and attempt a level of translucency to the shirt, as might occur with a thin white cotton shirt. I'm happy with how she came out; p
  12. Has anyone actually played WWX? I can't say that I'm overly impressed with the models, but interesting/different gameplay always piques my interest. Anything new or novel here? Not that I need any more miniatures games....
  13. So I'm looking to expand my western movie collection. While I know we all have our favorite western films this time around I'm looking for those definitive western films. Along the lines of a director's best western film, an actor or actress' best western film. The only restrictions are: 1) You have to tell me why you picked that film so state whether its for the director or the actor. You can only name a director, actor or actress once.For instance you could name Clint Eastwood twice, once for his best (or defining) western role and once for his best (or defining) western film he directed. H
  14. The proportions of this figure strike me as a bit gawky and thin ... but then that's entirely in keeping with this guy being called "Slim." The figure practically begs for conversion; the neck and wrists are very clear, making this an ideal candidate for head or hand/weapon swaps, and even the delineation between the rim of the head and the bottom of the hat invites a pretty clean cut with hobby knife (so that some other hat could be substituted). What's more, with a bit of putty (and I'll likely be doing this the next time I pick up one of these figures), a fairly straightforward banda
  15. I've been working on this guy for a while, but am giving him his own thread under the new WIP guidelines. I base coated a few more bits, but now I'm stumped. I want to make some of the metal bits of his gun NMM brass, but I have no idea what colors I should use. Any suggestions?
  16. The is the first of three or four buildings that I'm scratchbuilding for my wild west town of Calamity. The driving concept behind Calamity is a display board to be used at conventions to promote my local miniatures gaming club (The League of Extraordinary Gamers or LEG). I want it to be the kind of board that really draws people in and gets them fired up to learn and play a game and get introduced to miniature games. With that in mind my builds tend to be a bit more involved than you would ordinarily put into a building meant for gaming. That goes for all of my laser cut buildings as well, al
  17. This is the first building for my western town of Calamity that is scratchbuilt (well mostly, I cheated on doors and windows). I'm referring to this building and the few other scratchbuilt buildings as "Hero" buildings. They will be buildings where I expect a lot of action to take place. The rest of the buildings, which make up the bulk of the town, are "Sidekick" buildings. They are there to further the action and may see some, none or even a lot of action. Some "Sidekick" buildings might be upgraded to "Hero" buildings later on. I have a ton of buildings finished so I'm ready to get started
  18. My western town of Calamity finally has some new, painted, denizens to populate it. This is the rest of the stuff I managed to finish before the end of the holiday weekend. Although there are 8 minis in the picture only 5 of them count towards the total. That brings me up 22 for the holiday weekend. Here's the group shot: left to right Wargames Foundry Rusty Dimmock, Reaper Female Huckster, Dixon Bystander, Black Scorpion Tombstone 5, Reaper Miss Scarlet, Reaper Female Huckster, Brigade Games Western Characters I (Gambler), Brigade Games Western Characters I (Bartender) Individual
  19. I finally was able to acquire six of 4Ground's Dead Man's Hand buildings and built the first one up the day I arrived back from LA. Fantastic Service from Great Escape Games had them waiting for me on the doorstep (well in the house, one of the boys did bring the package inside). This is Side Street Building #2. I liked the kit and found it fun to build. Naturally I took extensive photos of my first build and noted some spots that I had difficulty with. Here are a couple pictures of the finished structure and if you interested in the trials and tribulations (actually not many) of building this
  20. I still have some buildings left to build, including the centerpiece which will be scratchbuilt. However, I thought it was time to get some paint on the buildings I have finished. This will be a two step process. Step 1 painting on the undercoat. In most cases this will also be the final color for the sides and backs of most of the buildings. On the front this is the undercoat and will be covered with paint and then partially exposed to create a peeling paint effect. This is definitely a "season to taste technique". There is more detail on my blog: link Here are a couple of shots of the first
  21. Hello. My name is Joaquim and this is my first post in this forum, althought I've been lurking here for quite a while. I'm from Portugal and I've been playing Warlord for some time now. I love wild west games and I've played a few but I always flet that they lacked something. I read Cowboys & Gunslingers and I was drawn to it instantly. But I had to add some details that I think that belong to this particular system. Some s abilities and the Leader and Troops rules. I've played twice since and it worked pretty well. Please let me know your oppinion about it. Abilities Leader
