Some 15mm Cowboy civilians, and a neat Christmas gift!
Well, on a snow-bound night, I thought I'd get a little painting done... namely, these 15mm Old West civilians for a buddy of mine... I asked to paint five cowboys and he required that I paint five civis along with them:) So be it!
Overall I think they turned out nicely... really, I've found with these guys that basically I just need to go through scorched brown, bestial brown, snakebite leather, and then grey and bleached bone... and that's it. Back in those days you wouldn't have too many crazy colors... I limit the brighter colors to the occasional bandana, and of course the lady's dress in this shot.
All they need now is dip, and basing, and they are done.
Also, a neat Christmas gift, from my wife's best friend (who is a SWELL lass!)... a $25 gift card to Battlefield Terrain Concepts! Good stuff! I'll have to think about how to get the most out of it... any suggestions?
