Old West Texas Ranger

Another Western miniature from the Reaper catalogue, superb sculpt and lots of character.

The size of this one is similar to the "Old west Madam" I painted  a few days ago but being a male his height is slightly taller so he can fit in with Black Scorpion Miniatures range models as well if you like. Previously I thought BSM were the place to go if you wanted Old West minis but I kind of like the sculpting of the models I got from Reaper a tad more. They are not as "blocky" if that makes any sense. And being slightly smaller they can fit in with other ranges more easily.

Comparison picture shows a Black Scoprion Outlaw and a Artizan Design "Earp" brother.

With that said I would still love to have a majority of the Black Scorpion "civilian" range as there are a ton of great characters among those blister - most of which would work for a Strange Aeons 1920's setting as well.

For the two weeks to come I've already planned the blog content to be "Forgotten Realms week" and a "Western  Week", in that order. So there will be reviews of miniature wargames, boardgames, movies and books connected to each theme Monday-Friday both weeks.
