For a variety of reasons, my dad going in to hospital with a suspected stroke being the big one, this has been a challenging week and time spent painting has been minimal. As a consequence I didn’t think I would enter the June challenge. War gaming looks great, I love what others are up to and I read their blogs and comment when I feel I have something to say. I admire the gaming boards and the figure painting but I’m not into gaming myself and thus building armies etc is not my thing. Accordingly I couldn’t see how to contribute to “June-it” against this background and the unforseen time constraints. Then I went and had an idea – “The Lamerton Posse!”
A Posse is a unit of sorts, a gathering of men summoned by a sheriff to apprehend a wanted outlaw. My historical genre of choice is the Old West and Lamerton is where I live in Devon so there you have it.
So far I’ve completed the first two figures (hence part 1!), albeit painted and based in to much of a rush. I hope to hit a minimum target of five/six if I can. The figures themselves come from Artizan and Dixon’s. In the case of the two below both are from Artizan. Very basic base work applied to both and painted using a combination of acrylics and oils.
Now to get my finger out and get the others done as the clock is ticking and the end of the month is nigh. Hopefully this will prove to be a better week!
