The rule of law...


For Rich and I to finally be able to get started with the Wild West Exodus adventure, we had to have something to work with!  So, that meant I had to create some more bases for the rest of the Lawmen!


This was a Liam Neison classic "Quickly, there's no time!" moment, so I just slapped some paint on the bases...


Here's the rest of the faction, including the Boss, Underboss, and Light Support.


Rich also needed to complete the basing on his Outlaws.  He already had some of the special base inserts which WWX makes.


Lawmen ready for some Paint 'n Play.


Rich's Outlaws, with some of the base inserts.  He also sculpted some bases out of sculpey!


Getting some paint on the Lawmen.


Then it was time to try some basic combats to get an idea of how the system worked,  We found that it was complexity embedded in simplicity, which was nice!  The variety all comes in with the abilities of the actual guys, beyond just simple stat lines.

The factions actually do different things, which certain other systems we had played over the years had lost.  Also, nothing is certain.  Yes, there are some nasty things, but even the lowliest of the low can still surprise you!  Beware. :-)

Rich seems to be taking aim at one of my Lawmen.


Some very basic shaded basecoat colors on the Lawmen, with a few glazes in there as well.


Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday are looking forward to cleaning up Deadwood. :-)

  3. It looks great, and cool to see your painting in different directions! The bases look great, better than store bought, and more unique.
