Like opening some dark eldritch tome on the Lead Mountain of Madness, Dave passes into insanity with the start of a new project: Wild West in 54mm...
So Mrs D continues to feed to my Old West "obsession" and dropped some very nice Xmas presents - this time its gone up a gear - or more correctly scale . This is a 54mm Andrea Miniatures rendition of Wyatt Earp. Its been a long time since I painted any 54's - the last ones i did were at least 20 years ago and were done in oil painted - so i was a little concerned over the work involved. However I have been using the Andrea paint colour sets the last few years and decided to tackle him using acrylics.The casting itself is absolutley superb , incredibly crisp and the detailid just right to paint. I have enjoyed doing him so much I have been looking at the other figures available in the range - there are some real crackers.
I have decided I will do a 54mm Old West game using these - I will only need a handful of figures scratchbuild a bit of terrain - oops this is beginning to sound awfully familier to how the 28mm collection started,,,god somebody stop me!!!
Well, its a wonderful madness that you've embarked upon Dave! This is a gorgeous figure and you've done a cracking job on him - well done!
Wyatt Earp will give Dave 10 points. I'm really looking forward to seeing more from this new project Mr. D.
