WWX painted outlaws

I've  been itching to paint these guys ever since I stuck them togeather, but held back and  the last of the warzone done and dusted it was time!

I wanted a rag tag look to my outlaws this is mainly down to recently watching 3:10 to yuma and the outlaw gang fashion gave me a few ideas, If you've not seen the remake its worth watching.

For once I actually did a test model to see how the overall look would well look!

and with the feedback that I got from my muse's I continued on with the rest of the hired hands, all 19 of them!

long range hired hands, both wave one & two mixed in, not sure on the differance model wise?

another load of long ranged guys

and the combat type chaps, again wave one & two,  wave two seems to be better stats wise but more expensive of course.

and the other 5

and all 20 good to go!

I also manged to get some other odds and sods done as well, in the form of Jesse James, a couple of specialists and side kicks and underbosses,

 The bases I've stolen the idea from Matt (Mr Evil) via the facebook group for UK fans of WWX, so huge thanks to Matt for doing the hard work and coming up with the idea ;)

this is his magic recipe....

paint base a dark gold,
use the gw stuff  (nihilakh oxide) with a bit of water,
let dry, drybrush with a lighter gold.
then put down a shade for base,
spray varnish so it doesnt lift (I didn't bother with the varnish personally)
then aff the gw crackling stuff (agrellan earth)

with these boys done, the pledge is looking stupidly good for month one....

Bought -8
Painted - 92 (nearly half was the jungle terrain)

So I nearly managed a whole month without buying a model but caved in on a good deal for a firestorm armada start set.

so on to the goals for 2014.....
