Just saw this in the campaign guidelines so I thought I'd repost it. With the aircraft campaigns I have been in have their own galleries. That has changed. So I think in the rules I kind of said post 1 or 2 completed pics with the gallery in mind. Instead of that just post 1 or 2 picks to the campaign thread.

Now i'm off to order my figure so it gets here in time.


"Due to this fact I have to inform you all that from this moment campaign galleries will not be available for new campaigns.
I have to ask you to save your pictures in your private outside galleries (like photobucket, flickr etc.) and change rules by adding condition that picture of finished figure/s must be posted in campaign’s main thread on forum."

Mine is in the mail. I am doing a 54mm Clint Eastwood Man with no Name mini from the trilogy of films. No I am not going to show a pic yet as the only ones I have are painted by professionals and as I am not as good as them by a long shot I will wait and try and trick everyone into believing I'm not crap

Andrea Miniatures has a decent selection of minis. They are 54mm so are a little more expensive than the smaller stuff.

Black Scorpion has a range of 28mm mini's

Hi
@ Aaron - I'm happy you like them.
@ Sven - it depends on how much you want to spend on a figure. You can check Master Box (Randy's choice), they are quite cheap but nice plastic figures or you can choose some of metal figure vendors like Andrea Miniatures or Pegaso Models (they have wide range of very very nice Old West figures).

As for my choice: 75mm Pawnee Warrior from Pegaso (proudly sponsored by Mrs. Snigorska - this was my birthday gift this year)

Here are my first two submissions for the campaign, Sioux warriors by Thunderbird and Elite Miniatures. The first is a relatively new release (Spring 2011) in 75mm and the second is now part of the discontinued company in 70mm. Both have been cleaned and primed and the parts are displayed with the box art. I replaced the barrel on the carbine in the Thunderbird kit with brass rod as the original part was a bit rough in the casting. Both had hair painted when I was working on another figure and had some Vallejo black gray ready to apply and they were dried from priming.

Hi,

nice projects in progress i saw !

So here is mine.
I made research on net to find what to model and what stroke me is that a lot of originals photos of this time were very "posed", you see what i mean ?
So i decided to model 2 characters posing for a photo.
There will be ,little "cliché" i agree but never mind this is the wild west , a standing gunman brandishing his Winchester and a seating saloon prostitute (his girl friend maybe...).

So i began with the skeletton for both:





Then i managed to add some "flesh"









And then i really began the man, from the base to the top (the boots are not finished) :















That's all for now,
any comment is welcomed
cheers

Awesome work mate. I can't even model a simple pouch let alone figures.

American Civil War (Touches on the Wild West Era) photo's were also really posed and staged. It might have been not just the mentality, but those big box cameras might have had crappy shutter speeds so movement would ruin the shot. So posing people might have been the only effective way to do it, but there are a lot of funny photo's out there with people looking really uncomfortable and very strained smiles.

As my main modeling interest is from Woodlands Indians - American Civil War - Westerns , I think I'll drop in on this one . I have three diaormas on the go right now that would fit in .

You hit the nail on the head about the cameras of the time, Thats excatly why all the photos looked posed.

Nice campaign, I migh join in.

Thanks, I’m signed up. It’s funny as I have been looking at the Andrea range of figures this week and ran across this campaign. I just ordered my kit this morning. Andreas “The Duke”

I’ll be watching all these figures with great interest.

Hi Aaron,

you're absolutly right, i forgot the time needed for the photos to be taken in its early times and so how long people had to wait in the same pose.
So this pictures have a very peculiar look i would try to reproduce, the way the gunmen posed fiercely with their weapons well in evidence.
