    Cool Legends of the Old West



    This is the beginning of my journey into Wild West gaming. After deciding on LotOW as my ruleset, I've started on models and scenery, mostly from Knuckleduster, with a few scratchbuilt pieces as well. My groups first showdown is tomorrow, so I'll try to get gaming updates as well as hobby stuff.

    The gangs, minus my Texas Rangers being primed.


    The town (still need a name!)


    Thanks for looking!

    Very promising indeed! I'd love to do some Wild West thing some day too. I'm critical of MDF because it's overused as all heck these days and often for things for which it doesn't work or requires a lot of additional work to make it look decent but for old west buildings it does work really well.

    Texas Ranger posse lead by the Duke himself. These are my first western themed models.

    Thanks! I was going to try the Rules with no Name, but I like the mordheim influence on this one.

    Looks good to me. I've always wanted to do a wild west project myself but until the recent abundance of laser cut MDF buildings it always looked prohibitively expensive. Of course now I have done the modern scenery I don't have enough room for a wild west project so I will have to admire yours instead.

    Managed to get our first game in last night even though half of my group canceled. We ran the Hang 'Em High scenario, with a posse of Cowboys attempting to rescue their buddy being hanged by my Texas Rangers. The Cowboys had 10 turns to cut or shoot the rope before the trapdoor falls. Unfortunately, my opponent chose to split up his gang and I was able to gun three of them down, at which time they failed their Head for the Hills test. Don't mess with Texas!

    Nice!

    I think it should be called Pinewood - it's certainly a material that will be in great demand in this town!

    Don't worry, non-GW project logs on Warseer can feel like that at times. Just keep at it.

    How did the train game work out? Reminds me of playing the FPS "Smokin' Guns". Fire fights on those enclosed spaces can be lethal.

    The train scenario will be tomorrow. I think the key will be to shoot the bandits before they can reach the train, or things will get messy .

    What? Not modelling an actual train?

    I like the mud on teh edge of the long coat of the pistol packing guy. Nice touch.

    That print-out train looks like a good idea. Nice painting so far.
