Blazing Saddles


I've finally managed to paint a couple of cowboys from Peter Pig. I've had these chaps for about 15 years and it was high time I get the little guys painted.


Although historical figures, I plan on using them for armed colonists and Grox ranchers on Farpoint. I have about 15 or 20 of these guys lying around so I should have enough to represent a decent force of frontier types to whip into a frenzy of anti Xenos outrage while hopped up on moonshine.

I do like the fact that 15mm miniatures are rather flexible and all manner of historical goodies can be ported into sci-fi gaming. The chap on the right is a Laserburn figure and they scale well together.

Next up, there's a giant Sumatran Rat!


This chap is an old GW plastic rat that is about the only remaining part of my Warhammer Quest collection and although it's a mid 90's mono pose, it paints up really nicely. I think I have a few more of these chaps kicking around somewhere and am rather looking forward to painting them up into some verminous menaces for my inhabitants of Farpoint.

Rat Hunting

I seem to be going through a rather productive spell at present with lots of stuff being painted and bits and bobs of scenics shenanigans in the works too.

Hopefully I'll have some more gubbins to show soon, including some new GZG stuff that I picked up during their recent sale so watch this space!

All the best!


  1. I was going to say that GZG has some space Cowboy (Firefly) colonists types
    that would mix in well here. Nice work thus far!

    1. I've spotted them and may have to pick up a pack next time I place an order!

      All the best
