The Baroness

Just finished this lovely little (resin) mini from JoeK Minis - thinking of getting another and painting her in a more 'ghostly' theme

'Down and outs'

I've been clearing out some 'old' projects recently, when I came across some Dixon Miniature's 28mm gangsters. Most have gone, but the 'down & out' pack look useful for other things, so I thought I'd paint them up

This also includes a hitman, which if I remember correctly, was a free sample when the range was first released

& the rest of the 'down & out' pack

"the Swede"

I've recently been watching and enjoying Hell on Wheels, a TV drama set in 1865 about the building of the  Pacific Railroad. All good fun, but when Brigade Games released 'The Enforcer' (sculpted by Paul Hicks) the inspiration was clear - one of the series more colourful villians, Thor Gundersen better known as the Swede (despite, etc). So I had to have one!

I've only flirted with the American 'old west' over the years, so don't have many in the lead pile - however, I did a quick job on these Crusader Miniatures outlaws to satisfy the itch ....

... not sure it completly scratched though, the BG Bushwackers look awfully tempting!
