I was wondering if there are any Old West lines that go scale wise with Black Scorpion?

My Black Scorpion and Artizan look fine together; if you've got a fair of number of each they simply look like normal variations in height. The only thing that can really tip you off is that the BS pistols are a fair bit larger but that's only noticeable if you know it's there and you don'tk now they're not just carrying Colt Dragoons or something.

I have figures from most manufacturers in my collection.
I do not fuss too much about them matching exactly, but will say the two extremes, for example Black Scorpion and Reaper at the 'Tall' end and the early Foundry stuff at the 'Short' end can look a little odd together, but on the whole I do not mind.

Most of my 'gangs' are comprised of BS stuff and I find the best to size up with them are Galloping Major, Boot Hill and my own (as I deliberately made them that way  ;)).

I agree with vindice, though, BS guns are big!

I use the examples below from my Apache band to demonstrate...



L-R: BB (cowboy conversion), BS, BB (conversion), GM, BS, GM (conversion.

BB: Blind Beggar
BS: Black Scorpion
GM: Galloping Major.

Hope that helps.

We have Knuckleduster in here from before.  However, this is the new "large" 32mm digital sculpt line (as well as 28mm proper digital sculpts)

http://knuckleduster.com/shop/index.php?route=product/category&path=1_68

Excellent line-up for those looking to match Black Scorpion etc.  All metal, wonderful sculpts.  The previous Knuckleduster releases were mediocre hand-sculpts far closer to classic 25mm.  This is definitely an entirely different line.

Can't miss out Great Escape Games, we have a rather sizeable range of 28mm Old West figures, scenery and rules!

Although lacking some of the newer lines, this remains a great visual reference

I've just found this figure comparison picture on Photobucket, uploaded by Uzgroth:
