A Fistful of Lead [1]

We got back from France last night after a long, hot journey but I found some time to dig out the figures for the wild west posses that I'm starting in September. The first consists of an outlaw bank robber gang of ten figures made up from the Artizan and Crusader ranges. These are all dismounted as I haven't got any suitable outlaw figures on horse but that's not a big problem.

The second posse is a based around the Artizan pinkerton figures, which I think are some of the best in the range. I don't have these yet but decided to order both packs as I've always wanted to use them, although not as Pinkerton agents. Instead, along with a Foundry 'Doc Haskins' mounted / dismounted character that looks similar in style, they will be Wells Fargo agents or work as enforcers for a railroad or mining boss.

In the meantime, over the next couple of days, I'll be finishing off some mounted lawman that I painted years ago but didn't get round to completing. These only need the horses tidied up, an overall wash in Army Painter quickshade and some base decorating with static grass and tufts to be finished. I'll then have a mounted version of my lawman posse ready for a game of Fistful of Lead Reloaded.
