Hello again all,
Finally painted my 15mm GZG Lawmen. Great minis , full of character. I did some head swaps & Milliput hats to add variety. The Matchbox toy cars were a perfect choice & a steal at 2.75 each. They were perfect painted as they were but I decided to add brown & black washes, matt varnish to windows & damage.

Don't ask me where or when I got that Aardvark mini but I had him for ages & now he seemed like the perfect choice for an alien villain.

Thanks for your comments. Z

Give that Aardvark a sword and you have Cerebus!

I usually dislike matchbox etc vehicles in 15mm….but I like those very much.

Great job on those lawmen.

You should have one with a hat like Two Fry's:

Thanks all glad you like them,
Sorry Dan I mislead you into thinking that Gzg has specific lawmen. I used the armed civilian's , specifically those with hats to make lawmen ( the most logical solution )

Funny you suggested that top hat because I have made a mini (Ebanezer the Undertaker – top hat & coat ) with a similar hat , to continue on the frontier town setting. Very difficult to make a narrow brim in 15mm though.

'Very difficult to make a narrow brim in 15mm though.'

Maybe start with a paper punch cut piece of thin styrene?

I was about to say 'donut made with two different sized punches,' but you don't have to fit it ON the head. ;->=

I agree! Making thin brims on 15mm can be tough.

Hi DSG,

I think I have 4 of those awesome figures. I didn't know they were sold as part of a set. I love that girl in the long coat.

I also have them with masks:

Your figures always have such amazing detail.

You guys; have you thought about links?!? ;->=

Does anyone have some GZG and DSG to put side-by-side? PLEASE let them mix-and-match!

Those sombreros look great Dan.Must do some someday.

Dk Str , I got those when I got the Parmas ( you still need to tell me how they came out pls)

Doug on those sizes,punches will break washers ( i gave up trying to do them in styrene) i used melted plastic sprue for the hat with very good results.

Here are the pics as requested

Gzg are 18mm & Dkstr are true 15mm.
The Dkstr females have lovely faces which considering their size shows the skill of the sculptor.

I used a thicker base so as to use them as frontier juveniles
with the GZG armed civilians shown.

They look good together.

This should help Doug.
