About the Project

I've decided to revisit my first historical games and give my minis a face lift. I dug out legends of the old West a month ago and realised how chipped my minis were. So I'll be revisiting my western and my pirates for these classic skirmish games.

To break up the sharp laser cut lines I drew over some of the lines of planking. I used a dark crayon with a light grey just above to create a wooden effect. After doing all the walls I thought I might go back to my other buildings because I like the result.
