From DaveD: 28mm Cowboys - The Willey Mob (15 points)

From Dave:
A little distraction away from the Sudan. I met with fellow challenger Ian a few weekends ago in Nottingham for a bit of future Blog-Con event planning and as I seem to have started him and his kids down the road of Old West Gaming using my "Blazing Dice" rules I thought (Recently offloaded the "spare" Old West lead pile to him) I would take along a present to ease his painting burden! 

Here we have The Willey Mob ready to defend the ranch . These are 28mm Great Escape Games, Dead Mans Hand figures. Ian has said the kids are already bagging any of the unpainted  lead pile with shotguns and pushing them up his painting queue - well I found two with shotguns to help him out.

A wonderful bunch of miscreants and a great gesture Dave. I particularly like the elder Willey with is grey whiskers and natty tan jacket.

These wild Willeys will give Dave 15 points. Nice!

  1. These Dead Man's Hand figs paint up a treat, and the sculpts have loads of character. Mind you, there's no reason why they shouldn't end up in the Sudan at some stage, just to stick with the overarching theme...

    "You're... you're the Khartoum Kid!"

    "Smile when you call me that, stranger."
