A rather fine casting I must say. Who will shortly be taking over the a new establishment in town the "Cattle Exchange Saloon"
Well we can hardly have Old West Cowboy scenarios and a Cattle Exchange Saloon without cows can we. I looked around in the UK for some , saw some expensive metal etc, but i wanted to be able to have a large number for a rustling , or stampede type scenario. I found these guys from the US , they are 1/64th scale hard plastic Herefords , a breed popular in the west made by ERTL. They were pre painted ,I gave them a matt varnish and then a light brown wash , and dry brush, also had to dot the eyes in. I based them on 60mm across flats 2mm MDF Hexagons from the ever helpful Warbases - This means the herd or elements can be a multitude of shapes , and can be easily controlled on a d6 for random movement. These cost the total sum including shipping of £18.50 for 40 cows and 10 calves!
So it is Sudan preparations next week , along with picking up a collection of Sudan figures , the Mahdi's; drums are a beating.
