From DaveD - The Pale Rider dismounted..54mm Cowboy (13 points)

Ok not exactly what I had planned next , but i wanted to do something a little larger than 28mm as my eyes are not coping as well as they were last year. This lad has been staring across the desk of shame for at least a year - so once I had blown the dust off the undercoated figure I thought why not. Some of you may recall the 54mm Cowboys I did a few years ago so this is to add to the collection , and for possibly a future 54mm Old West game.


As with all the 54mm Andrea Miniatures figures the castings are first rate and a real joy to work on.


Of course its easily recognizable as that anti-hero from Pale Rider played by non other then Clint Eastwood - not to be confused with our very own Paint Monkey Clint...


Right off to find something else from the Sudan mountain...Martin C ...I will see your Zulus and raise you a Fuzzy or several...

Absolutely lovely work on a beautiful casting Dave. I was wondering when you'd add something more to this great 'little' project. I think you did a brilliant job on the shading and weathering. I particularly like his dusty trousers and the wheelbarrow he's leaning on.
10 points for the Pale Rider and of course something a little extra for the wheelbarrow. Lovely stuff Dave.

  1. Not only is the miniature itself absolutely stunning; the composition of miniature and background is mindblowing as well! Great stuff.

    1. Cheers.. Weathered wood started with neutral grey undercoat, this is just then drybrushed in a range of gradually lightened mid brown colour to to a top of light sand
