So as discussed previously I am on a bit of an Old West kick. The new set of rules I ordered turned up on Friday, Dead Man's Hand from great escape games, and I got a set of their models to try as well. This game seems pretty fun to me, nice and simple with with some card mechanics. They have games split up into smaller sets of scenes which seems fun. In the book they have 3 sets of scenarios names, a handful of models, a few models more, and the good the lead and the dead. Hah, excited to give it a go.
Of course I couldn't resist painting the models wither, I went with an Outlaw gang since I didn't have any bad guys previously. The miniatures had a bit more flash and mold lines then I would prefer but they are not super new I guess so that is kind of normal.
They painted up really nice thou so I am quite happy with the result, a good bunch of guys. The boss in the front middle I am particularly happy with.

I also re-based a couple of my old guys over to the new standard to keep the numbers up.
I painted these guy probably 4 or 5 years ago, so hopefully you would agree that the new ones look allot better and I am improving hah.
Of course this meant I didn't make any more progress on the Somali pirates but I am ok with that.

Now I need to find a Clint Eastwood man with no name model. I know someone out there makes one! I have a hanging tree kit to paint as well which should be fun.
