Heading south

I am heading south for SELWG in October, I will be staying at Daves so we have decided to use it as an excuse to get in to some more old west trouble.
As you can tell by the lack of updates on the blog the town of Imelda has been very peaceful of late. To wake up the locals I need a posse. I am unsure whether to take an all mounted bushwhacker posse or crack on and finish the renegade Indians I started a while back.
I know Dave will be using his mountain men which have an awesome mix of long range fire power and close combat skills. so it may be good to close in quick on horse back then blast a way with 6 shooters. Or i could use lots of sneaky braves which can be hard to hit then close in an use tomahawks to scalp the hairy headed mountain men.
Other people may also be playing so its probably best to take a well rounded force. Whatever i decide it is sure to be fun and the updates will be coming in thick and fast.

Native American posse

Stephen the heathen used to ride with Rob Johnsons rebs, now he is leading his own outfit of renegade Injuns. More to be painted over Christmas.

This little lady, was painted by my little lady Isabella aged 4. She has even tried to dot in the eyes.

new posses WIP

I took advantage of Wargames Foundrys Christmas discount the other week and bought myself over 150 new old west figures!
Not that i would ever need 150.....
plus I already have around 100 sitting on a box waiting to be painted from Artizan, Obelisk and war paint ranges.
So over the next couple of months expect to see a good few new posses as well as all the civilians I have been hoarding to populate the town with.

To finance the project I will be painting some goodies up and selling them off on Ebay.

You never know I may actually get a game in to!

I have just finished watching deadmans bounty, the strangest western I have ever seen, featuring possibly the smallest little western town, three buildings in all!

A strange story which has Val Kilmer cast as the corpse, probably the best acting he has done in a long while....

It seems to be both a parody and a homage to the spaghetti western and it is hard to know if you should be taking it to seriously

I will not give the story line away in case you should ever watch it, which you should if you are into the genre and have a spare afternoon free.

If nothing else it shows you that you dont have to have lots of buildings for your wild west scenarios!!

it has also got me thinking of a fun scenario for my next game of LotOW

watch this space!!
