Looking for a very specific Old West figure
« on: July 17, 2019, 10:53:38 PM »
Hello,

I am looking for a very specific Old West/Victorian Era miniature. It needs to have a full beard, waistcoat, holster/revolver and bandana around its neck. I have looked at Foundry, Artizan, Brigade Games and North Star, but can't find anything fitting.

I have attached a picture of what I am looking for, but without the jacket.

Does anyone know of a miniature like this?

Thanks!

You could try Knuckleduster Miniatures they have quite a wide range of figures.

or Black Scorpion miniatures.

Yeah, of all the manufacturers...Knuckleduster is very likely to have something matching that.

The 'Outlaw' box of figures from Great Escape Games Dead Man's Hand might get you close to what you're looking for http://www.greatescapegames.co.uk/deadmanshand/dmhminiatures/dmhgangs-1/dead-mans-hand-outlaws.html

Thanks!!

How do the Knuckleduster miniatures hold up against regular Foundry and Artizan? Are they very big in comparison?

I completely forgot about Dead Man's Hand, thanks!

Depends, as some of the Artizan line is pretty old.  They're on par with Black Scorpion, and are solid 28mm miniatures, sometimes advertised as 32mm.  They don't have obtuse proportions like some "larger" minis.  What they are though, is absolutely fantastic Old West minis - easily the best line in production right now, hands down.  Forest's images/web-page do them zero justice.

They mix find with most of the Foundry stuff I've seen, as Foundry tended to make larger minis depending on the sculptor.

 Most of my western figures are Artizan and Knuckleduster.  Heights are quite similar.  The latter are a bit slimmer and better proportioned, but they work well side by side.

 I will second what others have said that Knuckleduster are the gold standard of western minis.  They have to be seen in the metal to be believed.

For figures with bandoliers might be worth looking at Boer War ranges too.

It may be easier to order the modeling of the desired figure?
