The Wild West via Dagenham

We are in the last week of the Winter Painting Challenge and I am racing to finish several projects in time for the final bell. My latest contribution consists of a dozen characters from the ugliest corner of the wild wild of which is my entry figure for the challenge. 

My wild bunch - A dozen well armed bad guys
I bought these models at Blog-Con in Nottingham last year which was hosted at Wargames Foundry. Being surrounded as I was by all those packets of shiny metal figures my self resolve didn't stand a chance and I left with a big bag of models and no clear reason why I bought any of them!

A bunch of exotic - or eccentric - characters.
Thanks to the Painting Challenge I have actually managed to put paint on metal to pretty much everything I bought on that day, and you never know, I may even get to game with these at some point. This bunch of wild west bad'un's have great character and were a real pleasure to paint. I would have submitted these a few days ago but when I finished I realised I only had eleven figures in my gang. The twelfth man was still on the run in nout but his undercoat and was found in a hideout behind the water bottle on my desk. 

The middle figure is my entry model for the challenge and I'll be posting that to Curt shortly. The figure on the left (in the white shirt and waistcoat) looks like Charles Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie
Now I just have to make that last big push to get my final few figures finished so I can reach my target of 600pts. 


  1. Nicely done Lee and who can blame you for such impulse buying, I know it would have cost me a fortune!

  2. Good looking paint jobs.
    Now get the brushes wet and hit that target.
