Deadlands / Wild West terrain?

#1 Postby mmacmartin » Mon Apr 30, 2012 8:24 pm

Howdy y'all:

been huntin' for some decent Wild West and Deadlands style terrain on the 'net, and comin' up short. I know of Whitewash city - is it as good as it seems to be? Other than that, there's a dearth of material on how to build a good western scene.

At this point, I'm aimin' to make myself a desert board (though a lighter brown-grey than straight up brown, with foliage about, as per Survivorman's episode in the Arizona desert), but I'm at a loss for buildings. I've got me some ideas on how to build buildings and fences and the like - using popcicle sticks and so on - but I'm not quite sure /what/ to build. Floor plans and so on.

Does anyone have links to good tutorials for this kinda thing? Would be much appreciated!

HERE - just leave off the palm trees.

If you live in the USA... THESE (the topmost listing) make great spiny desert plants one you remove the stem.

I have some good plastic cactus from out there, but I can't for the life of me remember what company made them.

I use Rio Draco and it works very nice. I also have a few other Fat Dragon pieces that work, the blacksmith, stable, well, and hangman's gallows.

Find a decent model railroading store. They have a LOT of era appropriate buildings - Old West was when Railroading hit its stride. Closest scale would be O Gauge - which will be a little big. HO is 1/87th, 28mm is 1/56th O is 1/45.

If you want a real cool kit, surf for some laser cut wood kits.

And yes, Whitewash City is everything it is said to be. The man actually travelled the country (on various vacations!) and took photos and measurements of real old west buildings still in existence, and then translated them to paper models. One thing though, they seem small in scale to most figures... this is because the real buildings are small and cramped!
Each building also comes with a typical floorplan and a blank so you can do your own. Plus you can print in color or B/W so you can color it.

Whitewash is pretty sweet. I have about 20 of them built and they are great in a pinch. They are a tad small, even though they are listed for use with 28mm.
