Reading down the list it looks like you may have missed this one.

SHQ also do a small range of 28mm western figures and banditos.

a few of the  SHQ  figures from my collection










Does anyone have pictures of the Mexicans in their line? I like the price and if they are decent I may order them to round out my Banditos...I have some Knuckleduster (anyone know how they compare?)

Are there any more old west figures out there? I have pretty much most of the ranges from Foundry, Artizan, Conquest, Dixon, Over the wire, Redoubt and a couple of deadlands figures.


so have everyone his own fetish...   ;)

If you want to add some Mexicans, don't forget to look at the Old Glory PIM line of figures. 

The Old Glory line of cowboys also have some very nice figures in them mixed throughout the packs.  They are not the style of Foundry, but they will blend very well.  My collection, which is now the property of another who uses them for games at HMGS conventions, was a mix of the following:

Old Glory - They also offer a lot of wagons for this period, both in the Old Glory line and Blue Moon line.
Britannia
Connoisseur (which Bicorne would be very simular)
Desperado figures - when I purchased them they were Pass of the North figures.
Eureka - of which Old Shipyard owns the Mexican Civilians and bandits
Foundry
Black Scorpion - Now that they are made of resin I would most likely pass on them.
Crusader
Blue Moon  - Like getting the mounted and dismounted versions together.
Dixon
I have purchased Knuckleduster and few others, but they were not painted when I sold the collection.

Basically, I have played a lot of games using that collection, which the mix of heights between manufactures, and it was never a problem.  The Rules I used were Desperado, and the turn cards were made by photographing the figures and then using a print shop program.  The game also runs faster and has many interesting turns if you flip two to four player cards at a time instead of just one at time.  I found that there were more street gun fights this way as two players moving at the same time would just step out into the street and roll the dice.

Does anyone know if Conquest Miniatures have a distributor in the EU? I'd love to buy some of their Comanche minis...

I know Warlord sells the Conquest boxed sets - not sure if that includes the Comanche line though (as the boxed sets are mostly FIW).  It would make sense though to contact them if they can swing something.

I've checked Warlord Games, they only sell FIW Indians. I'll try to contact them about the Comanches though.

I believe you will only be able to get the Comanches direct from Conquest Miniatures. The mounted versions were only available in limited numbers and not widely available.

Contact Eric directly he's a very nice chap to deal with. I purchased all the Comanches from him and he sent them to London with no trouble.

You might query Warlord Games since they are selling Eric's FIW miniatures. May not be much of a reach for them to go ahead and bring in the Comanches as well.

Foundry has just undergone new management, and so improved things. Good chance to grab some nice bits on offer. Great offers

Just found this site whilst trawling the web for WW bits and bobs. Not sure if they have been mentioned here, couldn't find them using the search.

2 seperate sets of foot and mounted Confederate Guerrillas sculpted by a guy called Phil Murphy. Look pretty good but have no idea of how they scale up to other manufacturers.

We've recently launched the first packs of our Western Range, so I thought I had better make mention of the fact on this thread for current and future reference  :D

The first packs are dismounted 1880s US Cavalry and Apache warriors - mounted versions will come along later  :)



The range is intended to be an expansive one if well received  ;)

For more information, take a look at "The Western Range" and Studio pages on the website, or go straight to The Western Range Shop in the Online Shop.

Not figures, but 'Arcane Artifacts' http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/arcane_artifacts has some '28mm' cacti available. I bought some - they're nice castings, and he shipped quickly, despite being in the midst of moving house.
