I knuckled down and maintained my 'at least an hour a day' painting regime, with a couple of extra hours over the weekend - filing!
The photo on the right shows all the dismounted bandits, each with a duplicate figure behind them, with a few small variations.
|Leader figure on the left has had his left holster and pistol removed.|
|Two standard figures|
|Hat removed (L) and added (R), also bottle removed from left hand.|
|Mounted and dismounted figure (horses not done yet)|
|Another mounted and dismounted figure|
|Leader, mounted and dismounted versions|
|Final pairing (bored yet?)|
|No modifications here|
|Hats either removed or added|
|More with no modifications...|
|...and their mounted versions|
|Unmodified dismounted figures...|
|...and their mounted versions.|
|Another view of the whole lot, dismounted (obviously)|
|'Blue' building roof, with scrap foamboard to 'key' the building - note also the support frame.|
|Underside of 'shack' roof (obligatory blurry photo) |
|Any and all store cards, phone cards etc.|
I'm happy enough with finishing the first batch of 16 Bandits and their 16 mounted versions. I'm now in negotiations with #1 son to see if he can make some more variants using scalpels, pinning amd green stuff; neither of the latter two skills I'm competent enough to tackle, but at least I'm fairly accomplished at using a scalpel (and I have the scars to prove it!).
