  1. KS : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/zombicide-undead-or-alive/ Safest thing is to pledge $1, wait for the Pledge Manager, check shipping, VAT, and other charges, then wait for the base game at half the KS plus shipping price during a holiday sale.
  2. Bombshell just came out with a resin version of their dieselpunk pinup/supersoldier, Liberty. She's a great dynamic sculpt, zaftig and muscular with it. Now, we all know this is evoking some 'what if Haley Attewell became Captain America' vibes, but I've already painted up our red-white-and-blue hero before, as well as an Agent Carter type and even a Captain Canada. So, I might as well continue down the North American continent. Presenting: Capitan Mexica! Click for the rest of the turnaround: Alas, the resin gun she came with was fragile and I had to kitbash on a sturdier one. He
  3. I'd used leather brown with an umber wash as a primer on this Irish bartender from the western/savage worlds part of the Chronoscope range. I then thought that the skin tone looked quite good and tried to highlight it up to a black/African American person' s skin. I used a 5050 mix of African Shadow from Scale 75 and Troll Claws from Army Painter. I have no idea what rules I will use (and when...) but am putting together a bit of a crew of the western reaper minis with this chap providing medicinal and room clearance support.
  4. Rescued this pair from the Box of Goodwill over the summer, and tried for a quick tabletop job during my Thanksgiving paint binge. Didn't quite get them finished in November, but they are done now. Spent way too much time on them because I didn't start with a color scheme in mind and ended up having to repaint a couple areas.
  5. Well, I figured that the market for cactus-folk was small enough that I shouldn't wait on it, so I decided to get to work on a Saguaro Cowboy and a Cactus Dryad. I got the inspiration to get up and get to work when I saw a picture of a crested saguaro: which really settled the question of "how do I put dryad hair on a cactus lady and make it work?" Twisted up an armature for a dude and a lady, and started slapping green stuff on. Here's a very rough outline of the dryad's torso with a preliminary series of grooves, almost none of which will probably make it to t
  6. Truly delightful sculpts by Bombshell that work well for a Weird West of gun-toting saloon gals and persnickety varmints. The sculpt listed as "Warfare Wombat" is clearly procyonid and in no way meant to represent a marsupial. Thus does copyright law make fools of us all (well, all except copyright lawyers, I suppose). While he might have been intended for a spacefuture setting, that uniform with the two rows of buttons looked like it could be retconned for a strange American Civil War. So I slapped together a half-assed kepi from greenstuff and painted him in Union blue. I didn't want to
  7. My first mini of 2019, she is part of a group I am painting for a steampunk/time travel game my group is playing. For inspiration I used this fashion plate, the figure on the right:
  8. Greetings! Boys..... Get your guns. I'm a raisin' a posse! Yeeeehaaaw! Thanks for looking!!
  9. On a whim I decided to do a quick paint job on some Artizan 7th cav figures I've had laying around for a while. We play a game called Dead Mans Hand and since it's a small scale skirmish game it takes just a few minis. Painted jackets and pants then did a wash on both. Also basecoated some leather. Also used Tanned Leather as a basecoat for yellow neckerchiefs. Decided to go with a few different hat colors just so it's easier to differentiate models on the table. Pretty much done. Need to do some rank markings on their sleeves once I'm reminded what t
  10. Painted the Texas Ranger at the paint and take at Tri-con in Sioux City, Iowa. Really quick paint job but I am happy with him.
  11. Am I the only person that say this when I looked at this mini?
  12. I'm pretty sure this figure must have come from Reaper's first Bones Kickstarter, because they had real trouble with facial features not filling out properly in the mould on a number of the miniatures. This is one such. In Reaper's catalogue, this is 80003: Ellen Stone, by Bob Ridolfi, but I always call her Jenny No-Nose because, well, she has no nose. Rather than try to fill in her missing features with paint, I've just painted her with a flat rag-doll face with no eyes or nose and just a gash for a mouth. She's a Weird West gun-babe.
  13. Things have been a little rough for me lately and I haven't been painting, but last week my dear husband got some paints out and I started working on random stuff. This is the original Ellen Stone with no face, from the Vampire box. I'm pretty happy with how she came out.
  14. Last August or so I helped TophDNA with his Summer Exchange (I think) and he was painting a cowboy for someone. At any rate, I decided to paint up this Gunslinger as Roland Deschain from the Dark Tower Series. I believe we did these in one evening, although I didn't complete mine. I'd put some crackle whatchamacallit on the base and left it to dry. However, I didn't get around to painting the base until a few days back while I was waiting for something to dry somewhere. I figured I should finish him as he'd been waiting around for quite some time. Really the only thing to note on this one
  15. Edit: Since this is now complete, here are before and after photos, so those who don't want to read through the whole process can see the results: before: after: If you want to see exactly how I got from one to the other, read on! ------------ The Bones KS 1 version of "Ellen Stone, Cowgirl" had a badly deformed face. I'll attempt to repair it. It should have looked like this, as the metal version does: But what I got, even after working a bit to build up the nose and do a liner wash, is something so bad my camera can't even autofocus on it:
  16. Well, I finished my first Bones 2 mini. He's pretty cool, and fun to paint, but not a particularly tidy paintjob which I think is largely due to inactivity on my part (plus some sub-par lighting, but it's a poor workman who blames his tools). Got to get a lot more practice in for the ReaperCon open! I'd really like to see more variants of undead gunslingers, too. A whole gang of these guys could be a lot of fun for a "Weird West" skirmish game!
  17. 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
  18. I know there hasn't been a whole lot of action in Calamity of late, but I have been working on it. More miniatures are being added to the population and I have been slaving away on one of my "Hero" buildings as well. However, since that building has just about reached the assembly point I didn't want to haul it with me this weekend. Instead I grabbed four of my freight cars (kind of at random) and decided to do a little weathering work. You can follow the process on my blog at: http://wargamesandrailroads.blogspot.com/2014/07/a-little-freight-car-weathering.html Here is the finished project
  19. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/springboard/blackwater-gulch-rebels-and-reinforcements Project is a followup to the western themed Blackwater Gulch game campaign a couple months back. Here, we have large amounts of various gangs of minis. Sweet spots seem to be at between $100 and $150 (each one gives you different amounts of starter sets, but all give you every single unlocked solo mini) Points of interest: $25 add-on for 10 bottles of Army Painter paints. Essential colors. $10 for 10 scenic bases $50 for a Battlefoam C4 bag $60 for 2 Gamecraft buildings and 2 outhouses
  20. I was looking for RAFM Mounties from the Riel Rebellion, but found this just a moment ago: There are more on this >>page<<
  21. 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
  22. MINIATURE...Hand from the grave...scratch built...all items are from my parts box...the cacti is real tiny cacti from the desert. PROTOTYPE...The request for this very unusual and weird piece came from a writer/artist; who wanted me to do a desert piece of a hanged cowboy coming back from the grave in skeleton form...with the hand reaching up for the hangman's noose. He wanted to do some comic type drawings and needed a visual reference to work by. This is the prototype I built and sent him...he really liked it...used it for his work...and I was nicely compensated. In my years...I hav
  23. I finally finished the last 2 Tombstone gunmen from the Tombstone 2 set, I spent maybe 3 hours on each. And here is the group shot, they all got base treatments.
  24. second one for the year, still on the western theme for the month (though I'm about to work on a cave girl)
  25. first mini of 2013, my goal is 100 for the year, and 24 western figs for January....
