Dead Man's Hand Project - Update #4: More Buildings

I'm working to wrap up the remaining buildings I need to finish my old west town for Dead Man's Hand.  I have all the buildings assembled now --- I'm waiting on an order from 4Ground that has some bits for the bases ... and the building bases for the gallows and Marshall's office (since they didn't come in the base packs to my surprise).  I downloaded the additional building signs from the Dead Man's Hand website and will get those put on the yellow and red tow story buildings.  I snapped some pictures of the progress with my phone, see below.

I'll be putting on games of Dead Man's Hand at the upcoming CelestiCon game convention that takes place in my hometown of Fremont, CA.  I'm looking forward to a great time!

Very nice two-story building with balcony.  This adds
a new sign shape to the mix.

Rear view with stairs to second story.

County Sheriff's Office with jail inside for those bad guys!

The gallows.  I must say they outdid themselves here as
the trap doors actually work!


Excellent internal detail with the jail cells
(with working doors of course)

You can have a jail break by removing the windows!

They include a number of to-scale
wanted posters to put up around town.

My only complaint - surprise, you don't
have everything you need in this kit!??!
That's it for now. More to come.


  1. Looking realy frestelsen Jay!

    Best regards Michael

  2. Great looking buildings. When can we see the figures? Can't wait.

    1. All four gangs are in progress and will complete at the same time. I should have pictures of them up by mid to late August. Everything will be done for the upcoming convention set for the end of August.

  3. Can't wait to see the gaming table finished, Jay, great stuff so far.

    1. I'm getting close ... gang painting is in progress and I can see the finish line :-) Thanks for posting the additional signs for the buildings ... that helped a lot!
