I think it was from The Hallelujah Trail, with Brian Keith.  Been a long time so I may be misremembering.  Which also had the memorable line "Protect both rears, simultaneously!"

-Michael

That was a really good comedy Western - and I remember that brilliant line, but as soon as I read has.been's Texas Across The River, I was fairly sure that was the one; but I looked it up on IMDb anyway: it turns out I was right about Peter Graves (from the original Mission Impossible TV series) playing the dragoon officer Capt. Rodney Stimpson, whose every order, whatever it was, came out to me anyway as "Hroo- Hrooor"  lol despite which, the troopers always seemed to know which order to follow. I haven't seen that for years, must see if I can find it  :D

Cheers,
Lance

Both were fun films, but I have seen neither in ages.  I do remember the line about "the curse of Texas", still.  But I had forgotten "How big can it be?"  We live near the border with Mexico.  It is a two day drive to visit my Mom and siblings in Tennessee.  One whole day of driving is getting out of Texas!

Pledged for the dismounted figures.
Lance, are you planning any 'Empty Horses'
(David Niven's autobiography, well one of them).

I await the Apache... & (maybe at some future date)
early 1800s Indians, Mexicans & Texican frontier folks.

Many thanks Pete  :D I spotted that earlier  ;)
I also picked up on the David Niven reference  8)

Yes, I do plan to do "empty horses"  lol
First dismounted Apache pack is out now, I have lots more planned. I'm going to put the pack of Apaches in as an "add on" to the Kickstarter at a reduced price and no extra postage - you might want to watch out for that  ::)

Cheers,
Lance

That's great  :D
If it goes through, I'll certainly be moving on to more Apaches and some Buffalo Soldiers  :)

Thanks,

Hows about now  :D I just created an add-on for them: "You can add one or more packs of TWR APA1 to your pledge at £6.50 per pack (usual price £7.50) and no extra shipping charge, there'll be a facility in your survey to add them in."


The Apache on the left brandishes a Richards conversion (to brass cased ammunition) 1860 Army Colt and a  lethal stone headed club. These Apache clubs were a clever bit of  stone-age technology which had the stone head 'free-floating' from the  wooden shaft, the whole being wrapped in rawhide shrunk to fit to give  extra impetus to the blow. The other 3 are armed with 1873  army Springfield carbines, 2 carry revolvers in holsters, all have  knives. Three of these wear waistcoats (vests) and shirts and pants -  which were usually white long under-draws beneath their breech clouts.  The other (3rd from left, is bare-legged and wears shirt and  breech-clout only. To use any of these as army scouts, paint their  head-cloth red, although dedicated army scouts will be added later.  There were occasions when more Apache scouts were in the field in  pursuit of 'renegades' than regular soldiers.

I have only painted one of these Apaches so far, here is a picture of different angles:

Here's a couple of the others in action:
