Cowboys & O'Leary Cowgirls!

Another set of gunslingers for Dead Man's Hand.  The cowboys should be easy to identify on the tabletop as most of them sport leather chaps.  I do like the fellow in the red shirt best.  Looks like he's checking to see if he has any bullets left in the chamber.  I can imagine him standing over a bad guy and saying "You're thinking, "Did he fire six shots or only five?" To tell you the truth, I forgot myself in all this excitement. So let me take a look. I'll be damned. I'm out."   BLAM!!!




Months ago, I had the great fortune to win the O'Leary girls in a drawing at O'Leary Miniatures.  Anne is back at it again with another giveaway, bigger and better than ever! She's got loads of prizes and her giveaway is sponsored in part by author Patrick Hatt. You can find Mr. Hatt's Amazon Writers Page HERE.  It's pretty cool that a writer and a painter teamed up like this. Do head over to her blog and put yourself in for the big drawing.

I keep Anne's girls up on my painting desk for inspiration. I'ts a double edged sword though as they can be, um, distracting. When I play Dead Man's Hand, I'll have the hottest outlaws on the table.  Thanks Anne!
"You girls are purdy!"
Showdown at Gucci Gulch...and the men were blown away.
I've got a set of lawmen and civilians to finish this project and then it's on to 2 new factions for Saga.  The bonus for the Irish warband is that they be run in Dux Britanniarum once Two Fat Lardies release the DB supplement this winter.  It's great when a set of figures can pull double duty like this.

    1. Finally getting to the bottom of the gunslinger barrel! Then it's back to two-handed axes.

  6. Another fine batch of gunslingers, Monty! If I had to choose a favorite, I pick the fellow in the yellow shirt firing the Winchester. His pose of leaning into the shot really captures the the sense of firing the rifle as he braces for the repercussion.

  8. So the desperadoes won't have things all their own way after all! These lawmen will make the west safe for decent hard-working homesteaders.

    Although the gals of the O'Leary Gang look to be (ahem) more than a handful for the most hardened custodians of the law...

    1. LOL! In the Old West, there was a shortage of buttons and thus, the top 3 are missing from the shirts in question.

  9. Great looking cowboy Monty! And the cowgirls are fantastic too.

    I'm looking forward to see what you do with the new Saga factions – I too will be doing some Irish for Dux Brit eventually.

    1. Thanks Jonas! Locally, we've just started a DB campaign. I hope to do an AAR and plug for it sometime soon.
