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

+1 !!! Specially if they are Copplestone sculpts!  :-*

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

It's China-made stuff (Bee Me Toys), they are very cheap and come in a clear plastic tube called JURASSIC LAND. From the 12 dinos included, at least 6 can be used as mounts for 28mm figures!

YESSSS!!!  ;D

I think I'd have to be very lucky to find that particular set of dinosaurs here in the UK, but I'll keep on looking. In the meantime, a quick search on Amazon has revealed plenty of alternatives, so it looks like I'm well covered for cheap dinosaurs!  :D

These China toys are strange: sometimes they are everywhere, sometimes they disappear from the shelves for a long time... So grab a bunch while you can! Looking forward to see your dino cowboys some day!  lol

That's equally true over here. Still, I have options now.  :)

Cowboys on dinosaurs immediately has me thinking of the Flesh series from 2000 AD comic in which time travellers from the future plunder the dinosaurs for their meat in order to feed their starving population. It is just another story from this wonderful comic that I'd like to recreate with miniatures.  8)

Apologies for going off topic in this post.  :-I

Vampifan, I will check out that FLESH comic, MANY THANKS for the info!  ;)

Still, I think that a miniature game set in the Weird West with vampires, werewolves and dinosaur cowboys would be AWESOME!  ;D

Here's a link for the Flesh graphic novel https://www.amazon.co.uk/Flesh-Dino-Files-2000-Ad/dp/190799226X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1496908389&sr=1-1&keywords=flesh+2000ad

I totally agree about a Weird West game with vampires, werewolves and cowboys riding dinosaurs being AWESOME!  :D

Everybody knows that vampires, skinwalkers (werewolves) and dinosaur wranglers are a historical heritage of the Wild West, as shown in this 1969 documentary:
