Crusader Cowboys

Some of my game friends are planning another Legends of the Old West campaign day at the end of March. I am not sure what I want to play but I have been inspired to paint some more cowboys. Here er have some cowboys from Crusader Miniatures.

Grima Wormtongue

This is my Grima Wormtongue model. I started painting this one about 5 or 6 years ago and the mostly black color was not working so he went in a box. For last weekend's Gathering in the Desert event I needed an emissary model for my Rohan army. I thought Grima would work so I dug him back out. Since I was running out of time I rushed the final paint. While I think he looks good in person high res photos show some flaws. He also looks a little dusty.

Rohan Royal Guard on Foot

These figures are the last of my Rohan army for Gathering. Here we have three Rohan Royal Guard on foot. These may be my favorite models in the entire Lord of the Rings line. I loved painting these and I wish I had more.

Warriors of Rohan

Wow...I am cutting this project close. Here we have 24 Warriors of Rohan that will be serving as dismounted Riders of Rohan for the upcoming Gathering in the Desert. These guys are quick and sloppy paint jobs on figures right out of the box. I am really glad these are done as they have been sitting around in primer for years.

OK, just a couple more pieces left on this project.

Eomer, Captain of Rohan and Standard

With Gathering in the Desert 2011 happening this weekend it time for me to get this army done. I am taking an all mounted Rohan army and I needed to finish the heroes. Here we have Eomer, a captain and a standard. These are fairly quick paint jobs but they look ok I guess. I was having a hard time getting into this project.

I also finished the dismounted figures. These are a must have for the game as it is very likely the horses will get killed at some point. If you don't have the dismounted figures then the model is removed.

I still have a few more items to finish up before the event. I still need to finish the dismounts for the rest of the army.
