    Been painting a few more figures to go on my new module. Bought some mules and cowboys from Musket Minatures, Rustic Rails. I had to cob up the mules to look like pack animals as he is not making a pack train as yet. Whew, thought I would go blind painting and tying on some dental floss and Birkshires elastic wire. Don't look that bad from 12 foot away, scale 12ft anyway.

    Don't know if I want to stage this frightening dilemma on my module as yet.

    I have not yet poured the eviortex water yet, still have some more scenery to go.

    Don't put colour on the cliffs, they're perfect as they are!

    end picutre with that speeder station. Bridge almost completed have to paint the track and guard rails. Need to fabricate some sort of tool boxes to go into the step outs and then to weather the heck out of it

    I think that is a bear not a mountain lion. In any event those cowboys are fixing to take a wild ride!!!

    Great scenery and modelling Bill
    It's neat the way you build up the expectancy of what will happen next

    Bill, that's a fine idea for a mini scene - a few figures tell a whole story - great modeling! :thumb:

    On the other hand, the scenery of the module as a whole looks very convincing, too.

    I'm reserving my opinion until its done.

    I'd lose my voice totally from cheering with each post update.

    Love it! love the bridge especially. One bothersome point though... unless you toss a good bit of vegetation around, the bear is out of place. Bears don't do Southwestern canyons much, far more common in the canyons of the Rockies, Sierra Nevadas, Cascades, Sawtooth, etc.
