'West' from IsobelS: Dead Man's Hand

Hello everyone!

Unfortunately, this post is going to be very brief as I am currently in the middle of a move and don't have an appropriate amount to sit down and write a complex and meaningful entry. Anyways, for the "West" Bonus Round I decided to paint up a figure that I have had for a little while now.

Ignore the messy work space.

This guy is a 28mm Reaper Miniature called 'Undead Cowboy'. I think the name is fairly accurate with what we're dealing with.

Close up without the flash

A bit of a high angle so you can see the base a bit better.

And a shot of his back.

He was surprisingly quick to paint up, but I think that is mostly because there was nothing particularly fancy about the colour palette I used. I tried to invoke a bit of an American Civil War vibe by painting his uniform blue like a Union troop but I'm not sure how well I pulled it off.

This guy was also a practice in glow effects and object source lighting. As I have mentioned before I have a large and growing collection of skeleton figures. To tie them all together I am planning on giving them all blue glowing eyes, so this guy was a bit of a dry run on this technique. I don't think it turned out amazingly but I don't think it's too shabby either, just something that I need to continue practicing. 

That's all that I've got time for at the moment but stayed tuned for some more skeletons. Thank you!


  1. Looks great, shame about the photography

  2. quite the unusual take on the theme, well done!

  3. Nice work Isabel. I'm glad we got a glimpse of the work space, as I chuckled when I saw the old school chestnut ink from GW...

  4. All the coolest people who want a real challenge move house during the AHPC season - so kudos to you Isobel!

  5. I love undead gunslingers, great work!

  6. Well done on a lovely figure, I like the glow effect on its eyes!

  7. A grisly and gruesome gunfighter, Isobel - well done!
