From AlexS: Wild West: terrain, animals, people and monsters (130 points)

Hello to all! My name is Alex and today there will be some strange things. I'm still working on the theme of the Wild West. And I made a water tower. And cacti. Iron bank instead of a huge village barrel? Why not... It seems to me that it looks interesting. And cacti will turn any element of the area into the Wild West.

Then I made my way into the playroom of my children and again, as last year, stole their toys. I could not resist. Doctor, what's wrong with me? :)


Then I took a miniature from the board game. I really wanted to make ghost dogs and a fire elemental. Yes, I know, they have not met in the Wild West, but in the version of the game that we play, it is possible. The dogs turned out great, but I repainted the Elemental three times. And I decided to leave this option.  Rather, it is a mud elemental, but it will give an interesting course to our game ...

Do you think these are just frogs from the baby kit? No, I'm a big fan of Lovecraft, so this is the messengers of Tsatnoggua. And they are very bloody and powerful ...


And these are the children of Dagon. Priest, changed cultists and Big Brother from the depths. I am very pleased with the way Big Brother did, I like the color of the skin. And a great priest. But this is not my merit, but a sculptor.


Finally, the mayor of the fictional city of Prague, which is in our fictional Wild West, and the widow of a preacher, who was torn to pieces by monsters in the night.


General view:


28mm people and animals: 18x5=90 points
28mm monsters: 2x10=20 points
terrain, no fully filling cube 6x5x6 inches = 15 points
total 125 points.



Wow this lot should be dubbed the Weird Wild West! I love the cultists and the colour of the Big Brother figure is spot on. Such a bizarre collection but all so nicely painted its worth stealing from the kids toy boxes for. Keep it up, they'll thank you some day. I particularly like the scratch built terrain with a tin can recycled into a water tower. Very environmentally friendly and worthy of rounding up to full points for a terrain cube (its close enough not to haggle over).  

130 Points strangely earned!
