O'Leary Cowgirl Leilon

Leilon is the nicest of the lot of us. She rarely shows a temper and seems to be perpetually happy.


While having a higher than average IQ, Leilon will admit to being a bit ditzy.  "I've lost my sunglasses. Has anyone seen them?" she'll ask as she hunts around the house. The rest of us are trying not to laugh, because her sunglasses on on the top of her head. And when we point it out she just says "Ooops" and giggles.


Leilon is oblivious to the attention of males. She has no idea that they find her attractive. She and her husband have a house on a lake. Now it's a big property and Leilon push mows the thing whilst wearing her bikini.


The first summer after they bought the place all the local boys started asking her husband if they could come fish the lake. Being a nice guy, he said yes. He had no idea that Leilon was mowing in her bikini in the afternoons. None of those guys were there to fish, all of them were there hoping that Leilon would come out to mow. Well, word got back to him and now a giant sign with angry letters sits at the end of their lane and it says "No Fishing, No Hunting-DON'T ASK".  What did Leilon say? She said "Ooops" and then she giggled.

This is a 25mm figure from Reaper Miniatures and was sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

Okay folks, it Wednesday and I'm knackered from staying up nights painting. I'll be in today, but will be away until next Monday. The weathers to be good and the painting table is crowded. Have a good one people.

  4. Dear Anne, another nice figure to be added to your posse! Isn't it about time for another group shot? One in sepia perhaps?

    Anyway keep 'em coming!

    Cheers Sander

    1. I've got two more to go and then I'll do a group shot. I may put a picture of the four of us sisters up so you guys can see how much we look like our figures.

  5. love her background story as much as the figure itself. Look at that tiny horse...awh! Make yourself some nice days!

  6. Have I told you that I absolutely love the back stories that you come up with for the figures? I think that is why turn out so amazing...you know their story and are putting the face on it!

    I too have been enjoying the weather. A lot! I think I've turned my home computer on twice in the past week almost! Enjoy!

    Liking it... good work!

  15. Nice job. Also, have I mentioned that I love that you give each character a personality and backstory? Because I do.

    1. I have so many funny stories about her. She has this huge Golden Retriever and the dog will take off if it sees a rabbit. Well, rather than just drop the lead, Leilon will hold onto it. She's been dragged into the woods face first more times than I can count. I tell here "Just react by dropping the lead" and she says "I never thought about that" She also pulled a muscle while tying her shoe and had to go to the doctor to have it mended.

      Delete
    2. LOL well you don't want to loose the dog, that must have been one tight knot too.

      Delete
    3. The dog would come right back and she's just holding the lead, not looping it. She could just let go, but she forgets. We can't let her ride horses as she doesn't know what to do when one runs off with her. One time this nag got startled and took off. Instead of leaning low over the horse when it went into the woods, she leaned back pulling on the reins. The branches of the tress cut her all up. Thank God I was riding with her and was able to get the horse to stop, elsewise she would have been killed.

    1. She's so pretty and doesn't know it. She's a painter as well. She does landscapes, still life and folk art. Very talented she is.

    2. I hope a gent finds her, Annzie, because is a rose pretty and fragrant if nobody plucks her and enjoys her before she fades away?

    3. She has a marvelous husband. He takes such good care of her and he's an upstanding man with old fashioned values and morals. A man of integrity.

  21. She reminds me of the girl from the Texas show in "The Right Stuff". I keep expecting Lyndon Johnson to leap out, yelling "Look whut I brung you!"

    1. That's a good one. I had forgotten about that film. Lyndon Johnson, now that was a character.

  22. Very nice painting Anne. I also enjoy hearing about your sisters. This is a fun project you have going with the Cowgirls. It gives the miniatures a lot more "life" when you are told the background the painter was developing for the figure as well.

    1. It makes it more fun for me as a painter as well. The next sister up is Niamh and she's the mean one. I come last and I'm not sure what to say about me. My figure looks like me and she's got the most guns.

      Delete
  23. Anne why do I feel like I've fallen in love with Leilon? I even feel gutted that she has a husband haha, just amazing, my favourite of the bunch.

  24. Are her sunglasses under her hat?

    2. Thank you for noticing the hobby horse Ray. I thought it turned out quite well.

      Fran, you were the only person who noticed that. Or maybe the only one who dared point it out :)

  26. Oh Anne, these wonderful miniatures are really showcasing your new found confidence. Skill level on this one is just sensational; outstanding work.

  27. Cute figure. I like the story too. Doesn't everyone wear a two piece while mowing?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Nice work Anne...you did an excellent job on the nips...hear me Fran & Ray???
    Really nice work.

  29. great figure, highlights, basing and what an interesting sister you have... its good your there to look after her, its also good that her husband is there to put up signs.

    a very interesting family. by the sounds of it now her husband has to watch out for some dodgy looking men claiming to be "followers of Leilon's sisters blog" I hope her husband can chase them away... anyway great figure and what an interesting character your sister is.

    1. She's so accident prone. She put her foot through a stack of empty aquariums, she accidentally cut off the tip of her finger trying to move a bed, she forgot to let go of a wagon when it starting rolling downhill and got road rash and on and on. She's got a high IQ. Lots of book smarts, no common sense. I lover her.

  30. Superb Anne she is marvellous I've had shit day in general and Leilons story has amused me immensely and lifted my spirits some what! Thank you!

  31. This is a treat to look at! And your ability to weave a story to go with every figure is a wonderful skill. It brings each figure to life. Looking forward to the pic of the real O'Leary sisters!

  32. Very nice work, Anne. Your color palette is now known through out the earth (and maybe beyond)!

  33. The painting work is awesome like always and the little story is good, I like it!

    A very nice figure.

  34. That story reminds me so much... of so many people..

  35. Very nice Anne, you are really putting out some professional looking figures now.

  36. Who can resist a shelia who mows the lawn? Nice execution on this Anne!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wonderful figure!

    Shows no temper?! isn't that a gun in her hand?! Seems her husband has nothing to worry about!

    All of your sisters are married, right? If not, these posts would began a pilgrimage to Ireland...

    ReplyDelete
  38. That is wonderful work Anne! Very impressive. How about a "mowing in her bikini" shot!!?

    ReplyDelete
  39. ha. well isnt she cute...
    now if they were real gentlemen they would have offered to mow her grass for her...
    rather than just playing with their poles...

    ReplyDelete
  40. A great piece and a great story. Also, a wife that does the push mowing? That's awesome. I don't know a single woman who'd do that. Inherently, as the man, it's just always my assumed job.

  41. Fantastic work again, Anne. You've certainly captured her personality with her facial expression. Best, Dean

  42. She looks fantastic and bubbly just like her personality. I especially love her base. What a wonderful backstory for her. Hope you're enjoying your downtime.
