Painting Tutorial: Adding Some Color to The Sixth Gun, Part Four

drakeminiatureThese painting tutorials for our Sixth Gun miniatures are coming at us… fast and furious!

In previous weeks, Boardgamegeek.com user “Sam and Max” has covered Missy Hume, Asher Cobb, and the notorious General Oliander Bedford Hume. This time around, it’s everyone’s favorite six gun-totin’ anti-hero, Drake Sinclair.

While Sam and Max admittedly took a couple liberties with Sinclair’s final painted appearance, it is still a terrific step-by-step guide to making the most of your metal minis.

Find this and Sam and Max’s other excellent Sixth Gun miniature painting tutorials at Boardgamegeek.com. We look forward to seeing which character from The Sixth Gun is comin’ up next!

And if you’re feeling inspired, don’t forget that we have miniatures sets available for a few of our other titles including East Texas University, The Last Parsec, and Deadlands.

Savage Bones Brings Savage Worlds Stats to Reaper Bones Minis

Savage BonesSometimes, you guys take the Savage Worlds Fan License and do things that just make us go, “Hey, that’s awesome!” Savage Bones is one of those things.

Since the middle of last year, Savage Bones has been creating Savage Worlds stat blocks for all the minis from the Reaper Bones miniature line. We might not be quick on the draw, but we certainly recognize a good idea when we finally see it. Now you can drop any of the Reapers Bones minis straight into your Savage Worlds games with virtually no effort at all!

“We’ve been dying to see one of our Savage Worlds licensees do a big, full-blown Showdown miniatures game for some time. Modiphius has truly impressed us with Achtung! Cthulhu, and when we saw the incredible miniatures and terrain for the game Mark Margraf created for it at GenCon 2013, we knew this was something truly special. We can’t wait to get some lead painted and play it ourselves!”
