As a kid I had a good diet of western movies to watch, movies like High noon, Shane, True Grit, How the west was won, The Good The Bad & The Ugly, Blazing Saddles, Blazing Saddles WTF lol anyway the point been I always loved Westerns so really it not surprising that sooner or later my hobby would lead to Westerns.
Its funny how what you do in a hobby can change over time & for me this is certainly true & lately I find I want to be doing terrain more then anything else, I still play games but unlike a few years back this can be anything where as once it was more or less just 40k.
Now don't get me wrong this not me saying 40k has become a bad game or anything like that it just that people change, I told myself a few years back that I would stop playing when I hit 50 I pasted that a couple of years back & with 7th ed coming soon it might be time to drop out but then again ?
Anyway back on track, as I was saying I enjoy making terrain & love Westerns, now on some of the sites I go onto I've seen some great western towns that people have built & I keep think to myself I'd love to build a western town, so I set about building a small western type of building to see if it was something I'd enjoy.
The little building you see in the pictures was my test model & allowing I keep it fairly simple & I've really enjoyed making it, another thing I find these days is I now do what I like when I like unlike years back when I'd have to have models painted to go to an event & boy is it a big plus as I remember sitting down & painting models when it was as enjoyable as getting teeth pulled not really a great way to enjoy your hobby.
So with this project a runner I'm looking forward to building the rest of the town & painting it up, I think I'm now more of a modeller that play's the odd game these days & to be honest I can live with that.
Another thing about doing terrain like this is it cheap I would think that this building costed no more than 2 Euro to make & I see the whole town costing no more then 50 Euro to build & paint, with the paint being the biggest part of the bill,
Will there be any model cowboys to roam this wild west town ? I don't know but then that just makes a hobby better when you don't know what tomorrow will bring,so I'll leave you with the closing line from a great Thin Lizzy song, A cowboy's life is the is the life for me.
Thanks for dropping in partner & I hope you enjoyed it.
