From DaveD: 28mm Bromhead, US Marshals & Al Capone (40 points)



From Dave:
As you will see this is not the Napoleonic gentleman in red !- I have had a re-arrange of a commission order so these will be along a little later! So i have had to prep another one instead and in the meantime thought I had better keep the scoreboard moving.
So here is Plan B:-
So first up I give you Lt Gonville Bromhead by Black Scorpion . I did one of these last year as well , but parted with it. The collectors series are limited edition and these are now out of production.

Part of the reason for doing the rifles last time was I had a request for a vignette for a friend who wanted it as present for a birthday - the recipient was very happy! 
I thought I had done all the Cowboys, but while rooting around I came across a mislaid pack - and what a pack it was Artizan Designs Town Marshals - Including a rather dandy "Bat Masterton" complete with bowler and stick.

A finally - I have made up my mind on this years new project - a bit of "Mad Dogs with Guns" 1920's prohibition America. It will use the same bespoke card activation system used in the Cowboys game and a range of different pulp figures (thanks for the distraction Curt) . So who better to start with than one Al Capone by Steve Barber - Prohibition Wars. Complete with an emergency getaway vehicle - no credit to me for that bit - its a straight Lledo Days Gone By - Packard - picked up for under a £1 on ebay! - he has a rather more imposing Rolls Royce on order for a whole 99p 

Phew - a very bitsa week!

Lovely work Dave. Those Marshals are particularly fine and I especially like the pinstripes!

These eight figures will give Dave 40 points.
