28mm Painted Black Flag Wild West Townsfolk.

While hunting around for townsfolk and citizen figures for my wild west town of Angry I stumbled upon these while ordering a gallows from Black Flag, not bad at all, very little flash, quite easy to paint and welcome in the town as long as they do as they're told and pay their taxes!

    Now go and watch Django unchained, you'll get some pretty neat ideas for your city I promise.
    Like making Dr. King Schulz

  8. I don't really get war-gaming but I was watching Cowboys & Aliens last night, and absolutely wishing for a model set. This stuff is fantastic!

  9. Very well done.

    Some of them look angry - possibly over the high taxes.

    If you are not careful some of them might go Coffeyville (Kansas) all over you.

  12. They certainly do look good, Fran.

  17. Yeee haw! You know with my name I'm gonna like Western figures. I was Christened after a TV Cowboy after all (not Eastwood.... so guess again!!)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Me like. Civvies are great..you´ll have to do up a few more and do a TV series style game. You could have one turn up every episode, who declares he is a man of peace, (a half american, half chinese guy looking for his brother)
    Just before he beats the hell out of anyone he goes back in time in his head and remembers the lessons of tolerance, calmness etc, chooses to ignore them and leaves a trail of dead and crippled behind him before walking off into the desert again.

  24. These have character, talking of which have you and Ray thought about doing a Trueman Show type thing, sure you would put wargaming on the map and make yourselves rich and infamous.

  25. Awesome job, really filling out the town now.

  26. I love the barkeep/general store owner. Probably the only time a man can wear an apron and still look like a badass.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Nice work Fran! I have that set too. In fact I cleaned them, primed them and then misplaced them.

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a wonderful array of characters and beautifully painted. Is it just me or are the photographs a tad over exposed? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nice painting, General. I especially like the fella who has just spit in his hand and is looking for someone to shake hands with!!

  34. Those look fantastic. They all just scream to be used in a game.

    ReplyDelete
  35. They look great!

    If I were a wild west bandit, these would definitely be the folks I'd want to rob. :)

  36. At first, the guy with the red vest, I thought he was a cyclops because that nose looked like it was one big eye. But then I clicked the image and saw that he had two eyes and one honkin' nose.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nice Fran in particular the gent with the glasses.

  53. Town- check, Irish infantry-check, hapless citizens-check......All you are missing now is perhaps Josey Wells type rebel raiders.
