It seems a long while again since an update, so here are some images of the finished store fronts from the western town. The 6 Buffalo Soldiers I painted up have played out a few games now and Dead Mans Hand is proving to be a nice, simple distraction for the time being.
I had a couple of store fronts half heartedly done with printed signs already. Some of these were less tidy or clear than I wanted and when painting the windows and frames of these buildings, some had to go. The old Jail sign was a quick Google image steal that never looked good, or fitted the signboard it was stuck onto either.
This has been redone as a US Marshalls office along with the large store being made into the Tail Feathers Saloon. The Saloon also doubles up as the Telegraph office and the back room is planned to be a small undertakers offices… Obviously owned by someone with hopes of starting their own boardwalk empire.
The hotel came with its own sign so didn’t need an update after the painting was done.
The only sign to stay on its building is the Cattleman’s Club. I think of it fondly as a smaller, seedier bar for desperados and outlaws to frequent.
The medium store front, with the covered boardwalk, has been updated as a Post Office and General Store.
So far the town is not big enough to cover any more than a 3 foot board, but that should be perfect for Dead Mans Hand or Malifaux (if we ever go back to that).
The hotel needed some bath or shower facilities so a small water tower will come in useful to keep the residents from complaining about the water pressure.
And for when those outlaws finally find themselves falling foul of the law… We can always hang them high…
