Looking at a more recent photograph of Ned Buck I realise that I still have some more work to do on the model after giving him a shading wash, and painting his base.
I painted the base with Citadel Texture: Armageddon Dust. Then I drybrushed the base with Citadel Ushbati Bone. Unfortunately I maanged to get some of this on his shotgun, so that will need to be re-done.
In addition I think I might go back and highlight a few areas, notably his hands, to add some more depth to the model.
Another one of the Wargames Foundry Old West figures I found. This is one of the Pinkerton Men from the OW9/1 Shootists set. I based the model on a two pence piece. I “flocked” the base with Citadel Sand and then gave the model a white undercoat using a Citadel Skull White spray can.
Using Chaos Black I then painted the model’s hat, shoes and pistol.
Sheriff McQuaige is part of the OW11/6 Town Toughs & Staunch Defenders pack. As the Sheriff is wearing a suit, as well as carrying a shotgun, he could be used in Victorian Science Fiction scenarios. He certainly could be walking the streets of London as well as the dusty tracks of the old west.

I have done some more work on my Old West gunfighters.
I am keeping the paint jobs relatively simple, so I can do them “quickly”, though “quickly” for me often means rather slowly…
The method is to paint the basecoats of the different aspcts of clothing, shoes, hats, guns and flesh. The models are then finished with a wash (or shade) to add shadow, tone down the basecoats and blend the colours where required.
The models were mounted on two pence pieces as bases, they have some Green Stuff added to the bases to add texture. Pieces of slate were added to some of the models.
Once the model is finished, the base is painted with Citadel Texture: Armageddon Dust. After it is drybrushed with Citadel Ushbati Bone. Finally some Citadel Mordheim Turf is added.
