Title: You are never to old to play cowboys
Post by: scrubber on February 08, 2016, 09:59:45 PM
Enjoyable friday and saturday night. Played 3 games of cowboys first this year, the result of which 7 more souls entered Boot Hill.

Game 3 turned into hunt down the Legend and kill him by two of the teams.

Great Scenery

What rules set are you playing?

I've got the Legends of the Old West and the supplements, and then The Rules with No Name as well, and have figures, but never played a game of any one of them.  :icon_rolleyes:

That looks fantastic!

Who make the wagon models?

Big Chief Sit on Bum, he say,
How Midaski, the rules are from many many moons age. They are Fist full of Dice from Guernsey Foundry which you could down load for free. {This may be the current rules with no name.} How every they have been change many times by us, but the basic rules and charts still apply.

How Warlord. Wagons are many Redoute ACW and Boar war. The stage you see is Dixon, but raised on a high base to fit scale [roughly]. ps Dixon wagons are to small for 28mm. We try to avoid the laser cut wagons as they don't stand allot of man handling, since our wagons move every time the Joker comes up in the card-deck.

Old picture of some more wagons.

The covered wagon now has a driver. It and the buggie are from Redoute, think the funeral wagon came through Cavalier Books. [not mine].
Can you spot Alice and the Cheshire cat?

Great gaming last weekend. 5 cowboy games in two nights. That's very good going for us.

New gang member. Dottie complete with red shoes and "dog with no name". Behind her is Rattie the rat catcher and further back is Mrs Jones the butchers wife.

Just 3D printed a saloon and bank. Lots of stuff coming out for the Old West these days.

Not my buildings, all scratch built with form board and balsa wood by friend of mine.
Towns call "Vulture Creek" and you can find Digits posting on the Lead Adventure site.

On a similar subject. I'm currently making custom Deadwood action figures. I also plan on making a saloon for them to hang out in

Need to replace pictures next time we play. Still undecided who to go with for picture hosting.
Never mind, I need something witty to put on a hand placard held by 28mm figure.
Theme: David has replaced our long time sheriff called Mr Pinkie [Sheriff figure in his long-johns.] with a portly sheriff with rifle instead of Pinkies pistol. I've made a small group to protest for the return of Mr Pinkie, so need something amusing for placard. Suggestions.

Does anyone have experience of Blue Moon 28mm Tombstone figure's. Hoping they are better than the picture on the box.
Title: Re: You are never to old to play cowboys
Post by: Midaski on January 02, 2018, 10:43:44 AM
No  :engel:

 - but got my Tombstone Rules pdf through yesterday from the KS and the hard copy and figures are on their way - really looking forward to this one. I do think Black Scorpion make some lovely stuff - already have a few of their pirates. Their resin has the same clean fine detail Westfalia produce on their halflings.



Got my 4'x4' board painted and been working on cacti - need to finish off some buildings and paint them up.
So we could keep this thread alive.

OK up for that, since I only own figures and wagons that we currently use. Some time in the next 18 months will be moving south from Manchester to be near my other two, so need to start making town.

(https://i.imgur.com/OKTwkiE.jpg)

So starting with something big. Livery Stables. They are for figures between small 25mm and super size 32mm all on 5mm bases, so building not made to any scale, but to look right using figures and also for use with ham-fisted war-gamers.

The wagons in front are. The unpainted one from Tiger Miniatures Colonial range. The driver is rather large, so going to swap him over with the Redoubt wagon behind. This one also needs changing, to long for street with team of 6 mules, also the base needs to be remade more narrow to allow wagons to pass each other in smaller streets.

Progress on Livery Stables.
(https://i.imgur.com/IwzCHqj.jpg)
All outside boarding finished. Need to get some mdf for the base board, attach stable then sand the base. All this is done before adding the floor for the hay loft and roofing the stable block. Reason, the ground area of the stable will have the doors open at either end so you can see right through it. Therefore it would be very hard to paint the floor with roof already attached.

The 6 mule wagon has been removed from it's base, again need mdf to make new one, with only 4 mule's. Having taken the driver from the Tiger Miniatures model, I need to get some more sitting cowboys. There is a nice set of 6 from Knuckleduster.

Are they available over here in the UK?

 I'd like a set of them too.

Hi Artoban. Going to have ago at shingle roof for stable and attached house. It will have to be the last thing done once painting finished as will be made out of thin veneer. Will be adding extension onto blank side, this will have plain timber roof, as added by owner after main building built.

Hi Midaski. I get Knuckleduster figures from Caliver Books.
http://www.caliverbooks.com/figures/index.php?menu=2#url

Also need to buy outdoor privy, large open barrel to collect rain water from gutter. Water trough for horses and a standing horse without saddle.
Title: Re: You are never to old to play cowboys
Post by: Midaski on January 31, 2018, 10:35:42 PM
Thanks scrubber - haven't looked at Caliver for a while - got a bit pissed with his prices at shows being more expensive than his online stuff, and some other sloppy admin where I got charged postage when it was supposed to be free, and never got the credit I was due.

I got a privy from Soth a couple of years back - he has a print design to make one on his 3D printer - as well as a cool gallows, and saloon.
Title: Re: You are never to old to play cowboys
Post by: scrubber on January 31, 2018, 10:45:23 PM
Beware ebay. Some one in Nottingham selling packs at about £20.00 mark and single figure's for £5.00. Packs of 6 figures should retail in UK approx. £10.00.
Midaski. Need some more figure's from them, but not until end February, can order you set and post on.

I have the clay tile mould, would like wooden shingle mould ,but bit pricey at £26.49 in UK.
That's nice contact GP, however costs as much to get it posted over here.
Got my stairs and ladders from Blotz. Stairs nice height 53mm from ground to first floor level and only cost £3. Ladders are a good scatter allowing your cowboys and girl's to gain access onto roof of building.

Problems in the planning department.
I've run out of small windows as used in the stable.
Anyone know of a supplier of 28mm scale windows. Not laser cut though.

Foundry have some metal ones - but they're pretty basic, and expensive.

I got a couple of packs of coffee stirrers for my planking, and those long matches for window frames.

No, I'm just an amateur. But tell me what exactly you need and I think I can help you out.
Windows are generally not that complex in shape, so I (or you even)could design them and then print to measure.
