Well, I finally got a chance to sit down and do some actual hobby stuff.
The other day I showed you some new 3D printed buildings I acquired for my Wild West (CoffinWood) project and one of those items was the bank from the movie Kelly’s Heroes.
Here’s a little reminder of just how cool this piece of terrain is.
Even though I SHOULD have been finishing off the mdf buildings I couldn’t help myself and made a start on this bad boy.
Firstly, I tried looking for a good reference picture of the bank from the movie but couldn’t find anything really. However my search lead me to this article and my mind was blown. I had no idea the movie was based on actual events.
So after having a good read I got back to looking at old bombed out buildings from World War Two. I decided to settle on a murky, beige, dusty sort of look as I figured that would suit my Wild West theme. Funny, I’ve always felt Kelly’s Heroes is a bit like a Wild West movie. Not just because it stars the man with no name, Clint Eastwood. Or because Donald Sutherland has a holstered pistol on his hip. I dunno I guess it just has the vibe of a western. Stealing gold etc.
Anyway, I tackled a good half of the building starting with the first floor and a section of the roof.
Yes you can see the print lines but only because the photos were taken fairly close up. I think overall the 3D prints are cool and will really look the part once set up on the gaming table.
It felt really nice to be back to painting. I listened to some “Wild Fuzz Trip” and drank some wine and really enjoyed myself. Isn’t it amazing how cathartic painting minis can be.
For those who might be interested, Wild Fuzz Trip are an awesome stoner rock instrumental band. Think Tubular Bells but with a lot more distorted bass 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼
