  1. Thank you for your kind comments :-) Needles
  2. Hi guys I scratch built the track. It's not far off O gauge scale. I used four of the red measuring sticks that are provided by games workshop in their fantasy box sets for the rails and coffee steaks cut to size for the sleepers/ties. Needles
  3. 'Wild West' themed Malifaux Board
  4. Hi guys, well the board has been delivered to its new home at Sanctuary Gaming near Mansfield, UK. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1418120525109605/ It recieved a very enthusiastic welcome and my hope I'd that it will inspire others to take up the game of Malifaux and possibly to build some of their own scenery.

  5. I must admit that there is an awful lot of resource available if you are thinking about doing a wild West gaming board. My next board is going to be based on the 'buyou' which is going to take a little bit more thinking about. If any of you guys have any ideas or inspiration I would be very grateful. Happy 4th July to all our American friends. Needles.
  6. There are quite a few humorous ones if you look around. I added one to the door frame of the church which reads "no guns please as church yard is full."...lol My other favourite is "here lies Lester Moore 4 slugs from in A44 no les no more" ;-) Needles
  7. Just Googled Wild West posters, notices, sights etc. and clicked on images. Most of them needed cropping as they were embedded in other images and of course they all needed to be reduced in size.
  8. Thank you :-) Printed signs I'm afraid, I would love to have the time and talent to draw ;-) Needles
  9. Thank you all for your kind comments :-)
  10. Thanks guys There really isn't an awful lot to go on in terms of scale when it comes to Malifaux. We know it is set at 32 mm which I understand is the height from floor to eyelevel however the characters that make up the different crews and factions are so diverse in height, scale and build that it is difficult to get a true impression of what the scale should be. I tend to work on 6mm=1foot so going on the height of a standard door being 6'6" then I would make it approximately 4 cm high. The buildings for my Malifaux Wild West board have been mainly constructed using lolly sticks and coffee stirrers and so the length of which have dictated the height, width and depth of the buildings. I would say go on the basis of if it looks right then chances are it's going to be right. That's the beauty of fantasy wargaming, you don't have to be deadly accurate when constructing scenery. I am thinking of putting together a few short video tutorials on how to construct some of these wooden buildings. If anybody is interested I will gladly send you a link to view them. Best wishes. Needles.
  11. Hi guys just finished my Wild West board: Needles
