Ma Dalton

The woman who thought her sons how to open a safe, as to provide them with a living. I had to partially resculpt the hand on this one, as the way she was sculpted, her left hand looked like a right hand. It's a really tiny model, as can be seen from the comparison shot with the sheriff.

Jolly Jumper

Luke's horse and best friend. Not much to say on this one. I'm not overly pleased with the way it came out, but it'll do. I really don't like painting horses, even cartoony ones.

The vulture

The vulture (le vautour), an other familiar presence any Lucky Luke based decor can't go without. The original Atlas model came with a tab to place it on top of one of the resin buildingfronts. Since I'm not planning to get those, I decided to sculpt a dead tree for it to sit in. Using a plastic tree from an old (over 15 years at least) kinder egg toy as an armature, this was a pretty simple sculpt, but it will do well enough for my purposes.

The Hearse

Le corbillard du Croquemort. What's the undertaker without his hearse? Another repaint of Editions Atlas, the hearse is completely made from metal (no resin bits unlike some of the other vehicles in the range). The wreath (la couronne) is not yet glued in place as I'm debating to glue it to the side of the hearse as is shown in one of the promotional pictures. I've heard a second one is included in one of the upcoming sets, so I might glue one to each side. Or not.

The Bankrobber

Second half of the "hold-up" vignette by Editions Atlas, made up of the robber, the banker, the safe and the sacks of money. As always figures were stripped then repainted using acrylics.

Goddess Athena

The reason they're all fighting for: Saori, reincarnation of the goddess Athena. Former spoiled brat.

The staff was bending all the way to Xmas and back again, so it was removed, hand and top were drilled out and a metal rod from a big paperclip was inserted.
