Cactus (28mm WTW)

Yes I felt the urge to do some wild west wargaming. It has now quickly past. But while I was in the mood I did manage to paint (roughly) a Wargames Terrain Workshop (WTW LINK) 28mm Cactus. Personally I like the sculpt, very well cast and clean and easy to paint. Just what I want from a Cactus. I am sure it will fit well into a wold west setting with NO difficulty!

It cost just £3 and was a joy to paint. Model wise, very well cast with no flash and no Moulding lines. So a real minimum of clean up. So really just a prime and paint.

I am tempted to get a few more but as wild west is currently not my thing I will hold off a while longer. But be aware when Wild West Wargaming does rear it's head with me again I shall nip out and buy some more.

I was going to grit the base but a simple paint was all that was required. We did not want to guild the lily to much so I have kept it simple. The taller cactus clup (I am sure there is a better word but at present it escapes me0, is tall and wide enough  for a 28mm cowboy to hide behind. While the rest are either waist or chest height.  Overall I am very pleased with the cactus and while at present Dave only makes (I think) 1 variety of these if there was more I should get one of each!  No that is not a cue to make more. As previously mentioned I am not in a wild west sort of mood.


That's it for today, back to painting some 28mm Colonials for Matt, which I hope to show soon.

Thank for looking more again soon. All the best Clint.

  1. I have that particular model myself and it is a great piece of scenery with a fairly large footprint. I have been collecting and painting lots of different cacti models for my Wild West games. It is amazing just how many are out there. By the way, Dave makes individual cacti as well - five for £2.50 - see here - https://wargamesterrainworkshop.co.uk/?product=cacti

    1. Thank you Bryan. I have since seen the individual cacti you mention. When I get in a wild west mood I am sure I will get some, and some chickens as well. Long story best covered MUCH later.

    1. Thank you Joe. All I know is that these type of urges are short lived, well most often.
