Old West Gunfighters

More progress on Tucson Bob for the Old West.

I also did some work on Tuco.

Judge Guthrie Prentice has had some more work on his painting too.

Still some more work to do, and I think looking over these photographs that I might need to use some more lighter tones on these and the other models I am painting.

Painting Gunfighters

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.

One of my finished models is Emmet Gates.

I have continued to paint my Old West Gunslingers, I am hoping to get a few more finished, despite having started to paint some more.

This is how far I have got with Judge Guthrie Prentice, compared to previously, I have painted his coat, British Uniform 921.

Alas the photographs are a little dark, forgot to check all the settings before taking the pics, needed to up the white balance.

Basing the Old West

I mentioned before that I wasn’t initially happy with my basing of my Old West miniatures so have been adding green stuff to the coins I was using for bases.

This should mean that when I come to paint the bases with textured paint it should mean the bases don’t look so coin-like.
