Painting Gunfighters

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

I have done some more work on my Old West gunfighters.

I am keeping the paint jobs relatively simple, so I can do them “quickly”, though “quickly” for me often means rather slowly…

The method is to paint the basecoats of the different aspcts of clothing, shoes, hats, guns and flesh. The models are then finished with a wash (or shade) to add shadow, tone down the basecoats and blend the colours where required.

The models were mounted on two pence pieces as bases, they have some Green Stuff added to the bases to add texture. Pieces of slate were added to some of the models.

Once the model is finished, the base is painted with Citadel Texture: Armageddon Dust. After it is drybrushed with Citadel Ushbati Bone. Finally some Citadel Mordheim Turf is added.

One of my finished models is Emmet Gates.

I need to finish the basecoats and then he will receive a wash to add shadow.

Slow progress with Wild Bill Hickok. Wild Bill Hickok is part of the Foundry OW9/1 Shootists pack.

I decided to use a bit of green stuff to texture the base. This will combined with the Citadel Texture make the base look more like a base and less like a coin. I gave his trousers a coat of light brown paint.

Alas the photographs are a little dark, forgot to check all the settings before taking the pics, needed to up the white balance.
