Knuckleduster continue to expand their range of 28mm Old West figures at a pace I have given up on in terms of trying to collect and paint them all. As a consequence I made the decision to focus only on the figures which really caught my eye or had some other special meaning. So when they recently brought out the seven figures from the classic western movie “The Magnificent Seven” I knew this was a purchase I had to make.
The quality of the metal sculpts was typically excellent but there is a problem with figures of “real” people. Whilst I consider myself to be a reasonable figure painter I am not an artist capable of painting a face to look anything like the actual actor. Those of you familiar with the film will no doubt be able to work out which figure is which from the pose and the clothing but alas you ain’t going to look at the faces and say “He’s a dead ringer for Yul Bryner/Steve McQueen”. All I can say is I did my best.
