Devil at the Crossroads: Western Sophie (03985) plus WWWOz Scarecrow and WotC Aaracokra as Sam


Recommended Posts

"Aw, shucks, pardner. You know Ol’ Scratch already. Closer to you than your own skin, and always ready to strike a bargain. Just wait at a lonesome crossroads at midnight if'n you need riches, skills, or vengeance. Scratch got all three in spades. You’ll know them by their smile and by the way their boots don’t fit quite right. Only takes one kind of currency—but you probably wasn’t using it anyhow, was you?"

"There's a little black train a-comin; Best get your business right / For that dark train's a-comin' on, And it may be here tonight"

A Stranger Comes to Town



You don't have a horse? She'll get you one. You don't have money? She'll get you some.

Her shadow is cast wherever she stands, stacks of green paper in her red right hand.

Took me a while, but I finally got Western Sophie and her crossroads signpost painted up. Added a couple of signs from other sprues. She's a beautiful sculpt. 

While we're on the topic of the Weird West, here's Agent Sam of the Treasury Bureau. A grab-bag WotC aaracokra mini that used to be dull bland white with brown armor; I gave him a bit of pizzazz and a nice hat. 


My Weird West games are warlock-patron intensive, and this fellow definitely serves the Spirit of the Age. Wings, talons, and authorization from the Treasury bureau is a formidable combination. 




Guest appearance by the skeletal WWWizard of Oz scarecrow, 80059:

"...Oh, that dark train's a-comin' on; Prepare to take a ride."

Great setting and backstory once again - love the way you did the chaps.

Bonus from me for the Nick Cave reference....

They're very nice chaps! I should probably put some fur texture on there. 
And if the fella from "Red Right Hand" isn't a crossroads devil, I don't know what is.

Love Sam, and the bit with the sprue on the signpost is genius. 

Waste not! The mini comes with a Reaper signpost, and I could easily believe the other two are Western place names.

Sounds like a fun adventure. 

Thank you! I'm jonesing to get back to in-person tabletop for this very reason.

Good job!

Better not be out there at midnight!

Oh, it depends! Sometimes you're in a bind, and need all the help you can get...if you don't have friends in high places, you can always find an ally Down Below.
