Guns of Brimstone Set 1

 My first PDF. A set of ten figures. Perfect for Blackwater Gulch Gangs. I just hope the scaling came out right. I printed them and did a test build.
I think they came out decent...

Here's a couple of pics.


3:10 to Yuma

One of my favorite movies... So, I made one of my favorite characters.  I have a couple more "Movie Western" characters made.  I need to color them and post em. Like a Hollywood series or something. Well, except that some were Italian movies...

oh well.

Banner, Logo, T-Shirt?

I've got  no idea what I was thinking here. I'm not even sure what to use it for. All I can tell you is, for the past few days, I haven't been able to leave this alone.  I just kept adding stuff.


Saloon Girl 1 Update

I managed to finish up Lottie tonight. I don't think I've done her justice.  For some reason, this was the hardest back I've done yet.  The hair just.... wouldn't work for me. Maybe I'll return to her and re-work it a bit later.

Since she's only 30mm tall, this will work for now.

It looks like I'll have a bit of time off work coming up, so maybe I can get a few things done. I'd love to have a horde of these finished.

One thing I have done for these last few, I "borrowed" a color palette from RAFM Miniatures. Seems to help with the shading I think.  Helps me have consistent colors from one figure to the next, which is something I've had trouble with.  Anything that gives a touch of uniformity and style to them is a good thing in my opinion.


Paper Figures, Update

I've had a long several days. Including a great game session I pulled almost entirely out of my ass, with no prep at all.  Seat of the pants can be fun but wow... I came close to panic.  I dunno if my players caught on, or if they're too good of folks to mention it.  I think the latter.

I did get a few more figures done, and added them all to a file, so you can have them all at once.

Next, I'll finish my Saloon Girls. We've almost got enough here to have a gun fight.  After this, I've got 5 more PCs to finish, and a horde of NPCs from the "Guns of Brimstone" game.  I plan to re-draw my previous work, which looks so bad compered to these. Bad. Yuck.

I hope to post a bit more in the next few days, provided life calms down a bit. Riiight. That will happen. Well, enjoy these. More on the way.


Weird West Roleplaying Game

Crushingly disappointed. I'm bummed.  I saw this on DriveThruRpg. I was elated to see a rules light Western RPG. For a buck. Hell Yea!!

Evocative art, check. Awesome genre, check. Great price, check.

Oh God NO!!

Classes. They're called Paths, but yeah, its a Class. Damn..

Hit points. Stamina points in this game. Oh, and a different die type by class. At least you don't get harder to kill by going up in level. I like the re-roll at the start of each session. That I think is a cool idea. The 0 Stamina points table is not bad either. Tying stamina to the Grit attribute I like also.

Ahh... ok, well maybe it can still be cool. 

Uh oh, here's something like Armor Class. Damn. Okay, so its Defense score. And, armor somehow makes a person harder to hit.  Oh, sorry, "Armour". This right here is the other biggest gripe I have with the D&D combat system. Armor just doesn't work that way in my mind.  It makes a person harder to DAMAGE or hurt. Usually it makes someone EASIER to hit, as it slows them down, what with being heavy and all. Ah well.

Skill use and Tasks. Okay, cool, you roll against a difficulty on a D6, adding or subtracting for your skill levels. Ummm, okay. Reasonable. Er... What skills? We got some Paths.  No idea what each of these Paths should be able to do.  I realize its only 8 pages, so a skill list by Path was omitted. We can figure it out.

The Magic and Special abilities section I like. Got some very cool quirks and perks in there. Well done.

This ain't gonna work for me. I pretty much loathe D&D in all its incarnations.  I had no idea what this little game was going to be like before I bought it. Since then, I've been reading Stuart's blog, so, I could have known about Weird West if I'd found the blog first. No big deal, its only a buck, and I like to support people making "small press" type games.

I do wonder why I wouldn't just use the Sixguns and Sorcery section in the AD&D DMG though.

So, if you're in to D&D, and want to play a Western, these rules will be perfect for you.  Its really a cool little game.  I really really want to like it.  Its just not for me.

Name Change in Order?

I'm really thinking of changing the name of this blog. I haven't written a whole bunch about Wild West RPGs.
Mostly, I seem to be all about Paper Figures. They're made for RPGs.. Does that count?

When I started this, I has some ideas about writing out some of the plots from my Boot Hill game. For some reason, its tough to bring myself to post all that here.  I don't think any of my players read it. Hell, I'm only positive a couple of folks do.  So, I guess that isn't an excuse. I'll start adding that kind of stuff real soon.

Who knows, maybe it will help me keep stuff straight.  Some sessions I have trouble remembering what I was doing.

Paper Figure- Saloon Girl

I've been working on a few new figures. This is one.
I'm fairly proud of her.

Most of today, I hung up Christmas lights. Just in the past hour or so I was able to work on anything. I'm not sure about the boa.
