Knuckleduster do almost exclusively historical figures and most of the cast from Tombstone (early 90's).

They also have an excellent John Wayne, a Bass Reeves figure, etc.

There is an excellent version of the Outlaw Josey Wales in the Reaper Chronoscope range.

Reaper also has a really nice Matthew Quigley in their Chronoscope line.

Gordon Studios have many great movie characters including the 7. Fair warning IMHO that Reaper mini is huge. Reaper is great but their scale is all over the place.
I am looking for the following Deadlands minis:  Shotgun Thug, Lost Soul, Cleaners, Railroad Workers & Feral Dead. If you have any of these minis, or if you are one, please send me a PM.

That's a fair point, but on the other hand, Clint Eastwood is 6' 4" so he is a lot taller than the average man and so I'm not too bothered that the figure is overscale.

Monday Knight Productions are old school, but their Old West Desperado line includes many well known and recognizable characters. They're 'big' 25mm figs, mix well enough with standard 28s (but not 32s) and paint up well:

Thanks for all the help!!

I just purchased FISTFUL OF LEAD and want to try it out.     I also want to take a look at Dead Mans Hand. But based on reviews- FoL fits my playstyle better. I just want some simple rules without alot of book keeping.

Brigade Games makes some great models that might resemble the cast of Tombstone, Deadwood, and others.

Never watched Deadwood.  Maybe I should.  Seen Tombstone,  Kurt Russell.
