Even More Peons

It's been a long time without updates, but I finally completed the last of the Foundry peons to populate the pueblo. Not the most exciting figures in the project, but when it comes down to it, a Zorro game will always need loads of these as the rest of the action boils down to Zorro on one side and a handful of villains on the other (more if they are especially incompetent).

Looks like I was a little rusty. Luckily, I documented all the colours used (and mixed) to represent the different textures, so I had something to fall back on. The dark grey seems to have gone a little glossy over time, might have to consider getting a matt varnish for the lot of them.

A little group of just the peons (not including the slightly higher class civilians).

And a groupshot of everything, it became clear my display background isn't big enough anymore...

The Dastardly Governor Rides

The Dastardly Governor returns... on a horse! A mounted version of Boot Hill Miniatures' governor figure.
It took a long time to finish this figure, not because of any inherent flaws in the sculpt, but because I really really dislike painting horses. It didn't help that when I was finally ready to mount him on the pin I prepared before painting, it no longer wanted to fit, so he's not sitting straight on the horse. Grmmbl. Anyway, here he is:

Mounted and dismounted version:

And since I've done it all the other times, another group shot of all the figures so far.
