Time for a few changes...

Well, since I am now getting into Warhammer Historical Gladiator as well as Legends of the High Seas along with Legends of the Old West that I should revamp the blog to accomodate all of the different aspects of the hobby instead of having multiple blogs dedicated to each.

I just ordered my copy of my Legends of the High Seas and should be in my hands within a few days. I also found about 8 old Foundry Miniatures before they revised their packages to the 6 piece sets. Already I have started research to scratch build a ship and started to shop various retailers for pirate miniatures.

As for Gladiator I have most of my order ready to place and should end up with at least two Gladiators of each type and have about 1/3 of the animals featured in the book on what I think is the best savings per figure that I could get.

Next up in Legends of the Old West, so far after I finish the last of the Knuckleduster miniatures I am slowly checking over my models as to what I need to round out each faction that I have and what to start on next.

Scenery is also going to be key for all these games and I have already started plans to make a few things.

Last of the Knuckleduster Minis are done!

Well, not totally done. I have to go back and finish the eyes and the bases.

Here is the last 3 of the Magnificent 7 or rather by Knuckleduster the Marverlous Seven.

At this point I am looking at a few different companies to round out each faction. Short of the Lawmen that have a good selection. I want to buy some extra Banditos (mainly with pistols) from Brigade. Some extra models to the Outlaws and the Cowboys would be a nice rounder for those two groups. After that, I am thinkin of just a few extra models to plug in as hired guns and Citizens then. There are tons of other figures I would love to collect but I am trying to get my list to the items that I most would rather have now.

A few models more...

I managed to paint up about half of the Marvelous 7 (aka the Magnificent 7) and the Client Eastwood look alike from the Heroes set by Knuckleduster. I just have to mass paint the bases, trim them and touch up the eyes and I am done! Time order more!

Here is the Clint's from various movies..

Various Clints from Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Outlaw Jose Wales and High Plains Drifter.

Magnificent 7 for reference.

Here is a few more that was just finished tonight....

Not sure who this is from a famous western. The Heroes set has 3 Clint Eastwoods, 2 John Waynes and some other guy in a sheriff outfit.

I have to touch up the eyes and finish the bases.

A few new faces....

Last of the Outlaw Gunmen

Lawman from Cowtown Chaos

The last Lawman from the Marshall set from Knuckleduster.

So far I have the following painted and done from Knuckleduster:

1) Earps (everything but the wounded figure), Doc and Behan
2) Banditos
3) Gunmen (Outlaws)
4) Woeman of the Gun
5) US Marshalls

Status on other sets:
1) Cowtown Chaos: 5 out of 6 painted.
2) Cowboys: 2 out of 6 painted.
3) Sidekicks: 1 out of 6 painted.
4) Heroes: 0 out of 6 painted.
5) Marvelous Seven: 0 our of 7 painted.

My goal is to push through the Cowtown Chaos, Cowboys and Sidekicks next. The Heroes and Marvelous Seven are some of my favorites and I want to take some time to look at pictures online to make sure I can paint them close to the actual character.
