From DaveD: 'Prospector Pete' and 'Jess' (10 points)


Dave begins his opening gambit with this fine duo from his wonderfully realized Wild West town of 'Serenity'.

From Dave:
So its an early single entry just to kick my personal scoreboard into life, and see if the rest of the 600 point mob are on their toes... I give you "Prospector Pete" and the faithful mule Jess. A Dixon miniatures set, and very nice they are too.  My diversion into the  Old West  has been growing steadily and my prime aim for the start of the challenge is to add some extra depth to my collection with some more civilians to my town of "Serenity". We will also be off down south of the Rio Grande , and out onto the plains before long. 
I hosted some of the gang at our first ever "Blog Con" a little while ago, fighting it out on the mean streets of Serenity - well apart from Ray not hitting a barn door - Sidney not being able to get through one, and Fran nearly falling over in fright at an opening "double 1",  James needing all the ammo he could, and don't let Loki anywhere near the steak house. - It was great fun , I am looking forward to the re-run. May be we will have a few other challengers involved.

These two are just great Dave. I particularly like trusty 'Jess' with his (her?) load of prospecting gear. 

Jess and Pete will give Dave 10 points. Good to have you up and on the board Mr. Docherty!

  2. A lovely combination. All prospectors need a trusty friend and it looks like he has one.

  13. Thanks all. It's been good to get paint on brushes again, it's been a long break over the summer and autumn.

  14. Great work mate. Love the colour on the mule. Is it just me or is he smiling on one side and looking a bit forlorn on the other?

  17. Lovely combination, Dave. The wonderful games I played at Serenity were right up there the very best of my wargaming year 2013!

    But do you have a rule for Jess being spooked and startled by the gunfire.....you know you need one!
