Well Murdock and Pete stopped by yesterday (Sunday) and we managed to get 44 figures painted for the Grizzlyville games at our local Dak-Kon convention (end of February).
To the left you can see what we painted. There are six gangs of six. Each gang has its own hat color (white, grey, black, yellow, tan and brown).
(note -- click on photo for larger image.)
You will also note eight "North-West Mounted Police" figures . . . well you probably thought that they were British Colonial figures, didn't you?
Well the NWMP (precursor) to today's Royal Canadian Mounted Police did indeed look like British Colonial troops . . . including having tropical "pith helmets" as their official summer headgear . . . which wasn't very practical . . . the modern Stetson "Campaign Hat" becoming their standard headgear after the Boer War.
Anyway, thanks to the help provided by a couple of friends, I now have enough figures for the Convention. Aren't friends great?
