A Fistful of Lead 
I've been stupidly busy with work the last few days so haven't had a chance to sit down at the workbench and get anything done. However, I have received a timely delivery from Products for Wargamers today, which included the laser cut signs that I commissioned, together with a couple of extra buildings for my expanding Wild West cow town.
These are an undertaker, which I'll be using as a gun store, and yet another saloon, as you can never have too many of those and it is a really nice kit. The great thing about the PFW kits is that you can order them in several different roof configurations including flat, pitched or sloped and in different lengths, giving you loads of scope for variations. The signs are also really neat and I'm looking forward to using them, especially the Wells Fargo one which is very cool.
In the meantime, I have started on a Sarissa Precision small building to add to the two that I already have. These are relatively cheap and quick to assemble, so perfect for filling in the gaps. However, I am thinking of toning down the colour scheme for the next few buildings as my town is starting to look a little bit garish with all the green, blue, red and yellow paint.
I have a busy weekend ahead but, hopefully, will get some more construction completed by the end of play on Sunday. The priority is to get the Sheriff's office and jail done but I may have to leave that for the moment as it's quite a complex kit, with a couple of the less tricky buildings being glued together instead. I also really need to find an inexpensive bank to stick my new sign on to!
