Painting Some Odds and Ends

Buck

I’ve put in a large order of Old Glory 10mm Napoleonic figures, but while I’m waiting for them to arrive, I’ve been attacking some odds and ends sitting in my project box.  Usually right after a convention, I file, bases, and prime the figures I picked up at that convention.  They then sit in my project box and are ready to paint when the mood strikes me.

The above figure is some sort of Games Workshop somethingorother that I picked up at NASHCON.  I thought the mounted Gatling gunner would make a cool addition to a GASLIGHT game.  The figure was painted when I got it in the flea market, but I repainted it.

From previous posts, you can see that I have spent several years building up a nice-sized town for my pulp games.  Each building, however, either has no sidewalk or has its own sidewalk section that goes all the way around it.  The result is that the town doesn’t quite look so much like a main street as a series of disjointed buildings.  I decided to cut some large sections from 1/4-inch plywood, paint sidewalks, and flock the centers.  The flocking in the center is meant to be alleyway or vacant lot.

In this picture you can see how two buildings look sitting on the boards.  The buildings aren’t of uniform size, so some will have a flocking “back yard.”  I need another coat of flocking on the boards, but I think the overall effect is about right.

This was another flea market find that will go nicely in one of my cowboy games.

I bought these at Historicon to go with my other Pulp Figures colonial Germans.

These are from the re-issued pack of rugged heroes.

So are these.  Today the kids have homework, so I’ll probably work on a few more sets of Pulp Figures that are sitting in the project box.  I’m hoping they finish their homework in time that I can put them through a quick WWII game with the rules I’ve been developing.
