Chuck Wagon

The weather's turned wet and horrible since Monday but luckily I did manage to take a few pictures on that day.
The chuck wagon is pack 91 from PeterPigs wild west Cattlemen range. The body of the chuck wagon is resin and all other parts white metal. The model went together nicely.  Originally I was going to paint the wood part of the body in wood brown but after having a peruse on the internet I found a couple of green examples which I thought looked rather good.

Wagons roll.

More cattlemen

As I've got the week off and the sun was out I thought I'd take some pictures of some finished figures and will put up a number of posts over the coming week.

First up is petepigs Cattlemen mounted with rifles (pack 89).

The eagle eyed amoungst you will have noticed the basing has changed. When it came to basing these I decided that the sandy base that I have done for the rest of the range didn't seem right for these chaps. Cattle eat grass so bases should be more green/brown than sand.
What it does mean is that I need to go back and re-do the basing for the rest of these cattlemen. That should keep me busy.

Snow cancelled show.

I was planning to go to overlord in Abington today , my first war show of the year but yesterday I found out that the weather had taken its toll and the show was cancelled. I always enjoy it as it's a small but but friendly show where I can pick up a few bits and pieces and  spend a good half day perusing.
The next show I could well attend would have been the wmms in a couple of weeks but my two young lads are doing a walk for the cubs and Beavers and I've being been roped in to do the walk as well. 

The latest pack of cattlemen finished are pack 88 mounted cattlemen with Pistols.

The horses for both this pack and the following pack 89 were all sprayed together using Mournfang Brown from games Workshop. Different shades of washes and mixtures were applied to give a variation of colour which is not so visible in the pics.


Hoping to spend a couple of hours outside in the painting den today and get the next batch of cattlemen finished. Then on to a couple of wagons and a stagecoach.

Thanks for dropping by.
