I wish these were closer in size to Shadows or Brimstone minis, not that I won’t be getting some. Great looking kit.

Yep. Small or not, I'm getting a box. no idea why, but when I'm ready for them, there they'll be - tucked away in the dusty back of my closet!

I play...

Sigh.

Battlefield Berlin in Germany stock the Dead Man's Hand range so probably worth asking them

(if they don't have an order in already knowing there is demand means it's more likely they'll get them)

Right?
I have no use for them at all, which is why I bought a box.

Sprue's a useful compliment to non-sprue miniatures in that you can select which weapons, poses, and even sides your miniatures will be, to flesh out your posse or build one. Frex, you need two masked bandits, one with a rifle, the other with dynamite. Well, this sprue has them. I think you can also have unarmed cowboys and maybe cowboys with their hands in the air. The set also comes with little tiny badges, so you know which side your miniatures on -- and you can use the badges on your other western miniatures as well. You could even glue a badge to a base to mark which side the miniature is on. GEG has single-pose metal miniatures, so one thought is to see which of their non-sprue miniatures suit your posse, and fill out the ranks with the sprue models.

Good fiction is consistent.

https://stronghold-terrain.de seems to be the only online shop on the continent taking preorders, they also carry the rest of the Dead Man's Hand range including joke sculpts like Doc Brown and Lucky Luke.

Right



WGA Raumjager, Great Escape Games Gunfighter, Frostgrave Cultist, Stargrave Trooper, Maelstroms Edge Broken, Great Escape Games Gunfighter, GW Genestealer Cultist

so size wise they fit right in, perhaps a touch less bulky than Stargrave & WGA

trying the stargrave arms on them they work but you'll need to trim round the edges to get a good fit (may work better with GW GSC arms, from the look of it but I don't have any of those spare to try)

Got a preview sprue, and painted up the heads. You get 11 heads, five top body halves, and five bottom body halves, per sprue, and two sprues per box (?). So that means you can have eleven unique heads, and ten bodies to put 'em on...

Still working on it (that's putty that's holding them together

I assembled some cowboys based on what poses would round out my collection. Other metal figures are Pinnacle Entertainment Game's "7th Gun" figures, GEG's "Cowboys" figures, and Reaper's Chronoscope figures.

Hope you guys get some ideas so you can paint them up faster and better!

Just got home to my lovely gunfighters.

The sprue is nice and decently laid out.

I'll probably pick up another box and definitely would go for some banditos if they decided to make them.

Some desperadoes or bandits would be a perfect foil to this box.

After all, there's only one head with a bandana covering the face! We're going to need more of those!

Happy with mine as well. I'm sure they'll end up online in the next week or so.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

I definitely see bandits and desperadoes happening before Brothel workers and bartenders, but the second box would be more unique

The desperado's rope can be swapped with dynamite (sticky tack), and I used a few bits for an objective marker.
Also, finally a gunfighter who's unarmed!

To be fair, it is hard to be a 'gun'fighter when you're unarmed. You're more of a fighter at that point.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

I preordered a 5-pack from Stronghold-terrain and they still have no stock as well.
