Old West


Recommended Posts

So, a couple of years back I picked up Aces & Eights, a really nice Old West RPG from Kenzer and Company. I purchased a bunch of minis from Black Scorpion in the hopes of putting together a campaign.

Sadly I never got the campaign off the ground but I’ve been using the old west figs as a skirmish group and, with the new Chronoscope figs, I’ve been adding to my army. I finally got around to painting more this weekend and thought I’d post the lot so far.


I really like the animated pose of Crazy Pete the Prospector (who looks suspiciously like Stinky Pete from Toy Story 2).


Another look-alike is the new O'Doul the Bartender which is similar to Leon Rippy’s version of Tom Nuttall, but I gave my red hair to match his name-sake.


Here is the bartender with his ‘favorite’ drunk.


I have about a dozen more old west minis to paint, but my ADD won’t let me stay on one theme too long. Oh look, something shinny.

The bottles are easy. The bartender's bottle was primed gray so I washed it with GW's Mud wash. I then layered on some thinned Muddy Brown from the bottom up and tried to make the fluid look level.

The only real trick is, instead of the Matte Varnish I use for the rest of the fig, I use a thick coat of Gloss Varnish. It makes it stand out.
