“Josey Wales” – 28mm Knuckleduster (Mo’vember Challenge)

This week sees the return to the Old West era and Knuckleduster Miniatures.  It’s been quite a while since I painted a western figure and it was good to delve back into the genre.  I can’t recall when I bought my last batch of Knuckleduster figures, it was certainly some time ago, and I have a fair few to get done.  I’m not in a rush to do them and the aim is to simply mix them into the to do pile to provide some variety over the weeks to come.

When the Josey Wales figure became available I knew it was one I had to have, not just for me but for my brother too.  A great many fans of the genre consider Josey Wales, the film starring Clint Eastwood, to be one of the finest ever made.  As a consequence the figure was a must buy and paint and I purchased three of them.

My brother has already taken possession of his figure leaving me with the two shown below.  I decided to base one on the same style of base as all the other figures I have done in this range and one on a little oak plinth as I consider it to be “special” figure.  Nothing really to say about the paint job itself.  All painted in acrylics with a colour scheme as close as possible to the movie character.

Personally the figure not on the plinth is the better of the two.

  1. Its great to see you painting some cowboys again and you can’t go wrong with Josey either! πŸ™‚ I remember seeing that one when I was young and enjoying it which is something because I didn’t like a lot of Westerns growing up even if I still watched them with my Dad πŸ™‚

  2. Those are both excellent (I think if I had to pick the lower one would win it for me too but they’re both great). You say your brother received the other one, does he paint models too then?

    1. Thank you. My brother doesn’t paint models but amongst other things he is a huge fan of all things associated with the Western genre and he loves the old West minis I do. Every now and then I’ll paint a classic figure for him and post it off. Josey Wales is one of his favourite films and Clint is one of his favourite actors so the figure was always going to be a winner with him. πŸ™‚

  3. They are both excellent work and you say you painted a third one as well? WOW. They are your usual high standard, and I have to say I like the idea of both plinth and “table” basing, gives you options if you ever decide to game.

  4. Yes Dave, you should try a game with your toys! It is rewarding. I love the Josey Wales character. One of Clint’s best. I love both of these figures. And with your brother taking some off of your hands you have a storage relief valve (however small) that even SWMBO would appreciate!
