The cobblestones look great, thanks for detailing the color choices too, makes it easy should I ever have a need to try to replicate . . . err . . . steal it.  :)

I made some very good progress this weekend but I'm constantly spotting more to do.  Here's where I ended the evening as I was getting too shaky to do anything useful.




I've attached the front piece, primed that, got a base coat on it, painted the luggage, painted all the brass trim, a first pass at curtains in the windows, a wash on the metal under carriage bits.


Here is a top shot of the luggage.




I also painted and washed the wheels.  And had to give them a test fitting.




There are tons of little (and not so little) touch ups to go, especially the black.  I need to decide on some highlighting.  I need to wash some bits.  

Hopefully I'll get to finish the base up tomorrow at work, and maybe seal it , if it isn't too humid. Its game night so not much painting in the evening is likely.


Then hopefully get finished  painting the carriage  on Tuesday and get it sealed so I can start on final assembly.


Wednesday might be a late night, to get it finished in time for the RPChallenge,

Getting very close now (which is good as I need it completed tonight!!).


Did many touchups and bits I'd been putting off, like the lenses for the lanterns.


Also drilled and pinned the bottoms of the wheels where they will attach to the base (note to self, do this very early on the next one as it is nerve wracking doing it to the painted wheels....)


Hit the cab with a quick coat of antishine to give it a little protection.  then attached the driver.  Found he fit and looked best turned a bit to the right.




After that was dry, on to the part that was worrying me the most, final assembly.  I'd been pondering how to get the wheels attached, with the pins for the wheels lined up, and the rails at the front at the right height for the horse?  There was no way I was going to be able to accurately drill 4 holes for pinning in the base, then glue the pins in, the wheels on the cab and the rails on the horse all at the same time without making a huge mess.


Then I remembered I had another couple of the big corks I had the horse pinned to for painting....




This shot is actually from my first attempt.  I checked it after a bit and realized the wheels had some serious negative camber and toe in going on, so they got an alignment which still looked good this morning.

And luckily I had a piece of Bones sprue just the right size to use to block up the cab at the right height while it dried.


So, all that is left is to trim the pins, drill the base and glue everything on.  Then a final once over and some quick photos.

      WIP HERE:
      Vampires roam the land, but fear not, there are those who dedicated their lives to exterminate them.
      Here we can see how Ernst Holtz and his crew hunt down the evil creatures who were hiding in an abandoned cemetary.
      Once nobles and commoners alike donated money to the Order of the Vampire Hunters, but since the Baron's son and his wife ruled the Barony the order was mocked.
      People no longer believed in the supernatural.
      Ernst suspected the Baron's son and his wife to be behind it but he couldn't prove it yet.
      When he heard rumours of vampires in the area he assembled his crew and took out the now rusty Dampfhammer.
      He would show them!
      He would capture one of those vile creatures and show it to the people, they would believe again!
      Once more the vile Undead would flee before him!
      And maybe he could find out why the Baron's son and his wife wanted to get rid of the Order..

      Finished up the companion to the "Stug" mech I posted earlier this year.  This is the "Tiger" mech from West Wind Productions, although this build-out differs from what they currently offer on their website.  Friend of mine picked it up in their kickstarter and asked me to paint it for him as he doesn't like doing vehicles.  I drilled out the "turret" and the legs and epoxied magnets in so the turret can rotate.  They're 1/4" so you can actually pick the thing up by the turret!  Base coat and camo is Tamiya, details are in an assortment of manufacturers paints.  Weathered with an oil pin wash and Secret Weapon pigments.  Markings are from a 1/48 sheet of dry transfers from Archer.

      Presenting the Shrike Urchin, this sewer wader is part of Twisteds Dickensian faction.
      Really struggled with this one for some reason (the fact he's very unstable didn't help), but I think he came out okay.

      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, full of monsters, gunfighters, agents of the United States of America, Confederate States of America, the United Kingdom, the Empire of Mexico, the Dominion of Canada, and Lost Angels, might get involved in the Great Rail Wars, get lost in the Sioux Nations, or confront the creations of the New Science.
      The Wasted West - It's 2094 and the world is almost over. Irradiated Ghost Rock bombs, as well as conventional nuclear weapons, were dropped on major cities all over the globe. The east of the Mississippi  river is full of the Walkin' Dead, the city of Lost Angels has fallen into the Pacific Ocean, and the only place where people can eek out a living is the west. Using Spook Juice, you can travel the collapsing highways from Junkyard to the ruins of Boise, and all points in between, traveling with Templars, Tellers, Cyborgs, Toxic Shamans, Sykers, and Junkmen.
      The Way Out West - The final part of the original trilogy of settings, this one is set on Banshee, the first alien world colonized by humanity. Of course, there were native people there first, and history has repeated itself again. Take up a badge and defend the colonists, or rob them instead, or maybe try to work with the natives, now that no one from Earth is coming to help. Ever.
      Deadlands: Noir - Set in the period between World Wars, centered around New Orleans, this was the first new game and first one done in the Savage Worlds system.
      So, I made this thread so folks could talk about games they're run/played, ask questions about the setting and system(s), or just share their love for the game.

      Presenting Little Dorothy, the fourth member and leader of the Oz gang from Twisted by Demented games.
      Wasn't as fun to paint as some of the others, but I think she turned out okay.
      As a bonus, here she is with Big Dorothy (The original version I painted a while ago):-

      Weirdly, they both ended up in the same colour dress despite not looking at Big Dorothy until I dug her out to take this piccy.
