A couple of weeks ago, I finished painting the dancing girls, but dancing is easier when there’s music, so this week I painted the piano man!
The piano and piano player is from Knuckleduster Miniatures and can be found in the Gunfighter’s Ball range. It is a multi-piece kit of metal and resin parts.
The piano is the only resin part, the piano legs, the stool and the player are all made of metal. The stool is weird. I don’t know if the legs were bent wrong or if the stool is just well used. Anyway, the parts all fit together and painted up well.
It’s hard to see some of the details in the photos, but the player has curly hair, a small mustache and wears a bow-tie.
I don’t know if you can make it out from my photos, but this cowboy has one silly drunken grin on his face. The cowboy with girl on lap is also a Knuckleduster miniature from the Gunfighter’s Ball range. It is a multipart metal figure kit consisting of chair legs, chair, cowboy and floozy (err, girl).
Looks like this cowboy’s definition of happiness is being three sheets to the wind and having a floozy on your lap.
With this post, the count toward my goal of painting 520 figures is at 182. Since I decided to count mounted figures as a single figure, it seems right to count the piano and piano player as a single player. However, even though the girl is sitting on the cowboy’s lap, they are two distinct figures that were painted separately.
- 38 28mm Fantasy Figures.
- 59 10mm Seven Years War Figures.
- 47 28mm Old West Figures.
- 5 28mm Colonial Era Figures.
- 15 20mm Spanish Civil War Figures.
- 18 28mm Science Fiction Figures.
- Rebased 11 28mm Science Fiction Figures.
- 35 Terrain Pieces.
Ok, time for a raise of hands – when you saw the title, how many of you heard “It’s 9 o’clock on a Saturday, the regular crowd shuffles in….”?

Here great song. Very nice minis. I have some minis from knuckleduster myself but have yet to paint them.
I love little civilian bits like that – they add so much to a table set up.
Elaine where’s the large glass of BEER on the top of the Piano for the Piano Player?
He has to earn it first! Haven’t you ever been to a piano bar?
