Could be fun. Horror wild west seems to be a big theme this year - so a wealth of figs and rules for this.

What a stunning illustration! Now I want her figure more than ever!  :-*

I, too, see a lot of uses for these figures in Shadows of Brimstone. The game is crying out for a vampire faction.

My dear Vampifan, I can't really imagine ANY game without a vampire faction!  lol

BTW: Do Shadows Over Brimstone have cowboys riding dinosaurs?

Not as such.  But there are dinosaurs.  And the Cowboy character class starts with a lasso...

You can buy giant slugs as mounts, so there's that.

Thanks for the info, Michael! But it seems that a slug would never be as fast as an old fashioned quarter-raptor!  :D  You know, dino riding and wrangling used to be a very nice sport those days!

It would certainly be possible to have cowboys riding dinosaurs in Shadows of Brimstone, Edu. As Michael said, they do exist. Indeed, I have just bought a large Raptor for the game. It is an official monster, by the way.

I was very impressed with the figure of Ruby riding the dinosaur you showed, but when I clicked on the link I saw that it cost a whopping big £28.00 (OUCH!) and it was out of stock. Oh well, perhaps that's for the best - My wallet certainly thinks so!  :D

Vampifan, at this price I can easily visualize Ruby as one of the mounted ladies of the WW Cowboy Wars miniatures riding a GW ColdOne or even a dollar store velociraptor!  :D

BTW: looking forward to see your new dino in action!  ;)

EDIT: a GREAT example of dollar store dinosaur mounts:

I remember seeing somewhere in the www a long time ago pictures of a DEADLANDS game in which part of the gang of train robbers were riding velociraptors, and the rest of the crew were in a howdah on a big triceratops with a harpoon gun (with a heavy chain) to make the train derail! Simply AWESOME!  :o

And those Dracula's America vampires are perfect for DEADLANDS as well!  :D

Those dino mounts look great. I shall have to scour my local pound stores to find something similar.

The Shadows of Brimstone Raptor is destined to make an appearance in my JDMG campaign!  8)

I like the look of the figures. Apparently there will be new stuff from Mark Copplestone and Mike Owen for this too.

I'm not sure I buy the concept of an, evil crazed creature intent on the destructive of civilization becoming president though.

To be honest, I'm far more interested in the figures than in the game.

Me too. I think I'd just work them into Fistful of Lead.
