Elegance in the West

When I first got this figure from Reaper Miniatures, I thought it was a neat miniature, and it would make a great civilian when I start playing my Warrior Nation posse in Wild West Exodus.

I didn't expect to enjoy painting it so much, or to get such an interesting result!

Since I want to introduce this greenish color to my official Warrior Nation figures, I was very pleased to see how the warmer 'kelly' green juxtaposed with the warm tans, umbers and siennas.

If I can continue these sets of colors on my hired hands Braves and Scalpers, I think I will have a very interesting looking posse!  Stay tuned.

Seeing the world in Miniature

That would be Miniature 13.  They recently launched a successful kickstarter, and they have been hard at work producing all the miniature since!

Here are two of the first miniatures, which were very nice casts!

You can see that having great concept art can lead to very nice figures to paint.

And here she is in miniature.  I made a base which I thought would continue the setting which was established by the sculpt itself.  I am going to paint her in these colors, which means we will have a very fun set of side by side images coming!!

It was very easy to get these figures assembled, which is always a plus.

And now a look at the other figure.  He is standing on a 40mm base.

You can even leave the cloak off the figure, so that you get to see all the work on the tail and back plates.

Another sculpt that will join the previous figures.  I love the lines on this!  There's a fantastic flow to the chest and arm details that will make them very easy to paint.

So, check out Miniature 13, and see what they are all about:
