The Woeful Tale of Wyatt Earp and the First Ever Army Build

I am not very far into planning my first army beyond I MUST HAVE WYATT AND DOC... oh, and some other guys, who I will throw in harm's way all the time to keep my precious Wyatt and Doc safe. I may paint those unfortunates with red shirts.

Things to build, which I'm no good at and to paint, which I'm still worse at.

CAN'T WAIT!

Further bulletins as events warrant.

    Right, here we go. Please bear in mind that I'm new to building an army of my own and this is my first time at having a go. I am deliberately going for basic because I want to get to grips with the gameplay before I go wild.

    Tell me what I've done right, what I've done wrong. Wyatt and a Doc will always be there, no matter what, but other than that personal preference...

    Onto the interim-named 'Eight Men and Their Dogs'

    BOSS - Wyatt Earp, 270
    Face 1 - Virgil Earp. 145
    Hands 1 - K9 X 3. 60
    Face 2 - Doc Holliday. 160
    Hands 2 - Riflemen X 5 125

    760 Points, although because I'm too lazy to get out of bed and get something with a calculator, I've attempted to work it out in my head. I've got three different answers so far.

    Maths. Not my thing.

  • Excels says 760 :)

    I just wonder how strongly our list building will change when we actually play some scenarios :)

  • OK, pending the arrival of that appalling timekeeper Virgil Earp, we are good to go!

    "There's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No, I'm sure of it, I hate him."

  • Addendum. Posse is now named 'The Hellbringers'.

    "There's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No, I'm sure of it, I hate him."

  • OK, with the latest stat card updates, the army now points out at 745. The other half has jiggled his Enlightened about and it came out at 740. We're pretty much matched. Time to crush him into the ground.

    Ahem.

    "There's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No, I'm sure of it, I hate him."

  • Virgil 'Late to the Party' Earp is now Green Stuffed to the hilt and lingers with everyone else apart from one of the K9s in basecoat limbo.

  • "There's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No, I'm sure of it, I hate him."

  • One of the riflemen...

    "There's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No, I'm sure of it, I hate him."

  • And Marshal Earp himself. Hard to get a good photo in that pose...

    "There's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No, I'm sure of it, I hate him."

  • Great colour scheme, can't wait to see them all finished.

  • Looking good! I like the posse choices. The dogs make every list better.

  • I am a slacker. Nothing has progressed.

    Well, none of the painting has progressed. Writing, on the other hand... ;)

    "There's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No, I'm sure of it, I hate him."

  • Looking good there mate!
    I need to get working on my lawmen as well, first game on Sunday :)

    You tell 'em I'm coming... and hell's coming with me, you hear?...Hell's coming with me!

  • Well, Doc got painted as well. It was much needed for the trip to Tombstone, because the pair of them had fun being pictured in entertaining spots. The rest of the army is mostly done and just quietly sitting waiting now.

    In the meantime, here's Doc 'n' Wyatt enjoying the view from Boot Hill.
