Latest Cowboys

These are the latest additions to my cowboy posse. I've been trying to vary colours and techniques as well as be bolder with highlights. I do struggle with saturation and colours in general, but they just need practise.

In her majesty's name. Round 2.

IHMN campaign's 2nd mission was to get out of the board with a boat. The boats started activating randomly from turn 1 onwards, and sailed offboard with growing speed unless boarded and taken into player control.

To get to the boats, one had to use a rowboat. It moved 1" for every model that elected to row, rowing models could not do anything else thet turn. So if 5/7 models would row, the remaining 2 could stil fire/move etc. Also swimming was 1".

Very fun mission! Many thanks to Mikko from smallcuts for setting it up.

Dark Elf core "nearing completion"

2 cowboys are feeling a bit neglected in the midst of all this..
My plan is to get at least the whole core painted until next sunday's tournament, I need 20 models anymore.
After initial experiments, I can now manage about 8 / evening, so it is doable + if I burn some midnight oil, I can get the hydra and chariot painted as well.

In her Majestys Name battle report

Our "In Her Majestys Name" campaign started with a clash of my wild west posse against Hassan and his strange bunch.
The rules are fun and fast, we got 2 games played within 4 hours even with all the rule reading and all. I can recommend them to casual gamers who want to have some fun and play that one group that has not existed in any other game.

As for my posse, Wild West Show seems to rely on it's speed and medicore firepower, the old hunter is really good with his rifle though. I think I'll remove some of the horses and get more boots on the ground for those points in future.. If i get to around painting them..

Big thanks to Mikko for setting up the games, they were really balanced and entertaining.

Following battle report of the first game has really no enemy movements or tactics, its more or less a narrative of my posse's actions.
