So, I checked and the first rolled hay machine came out way back in 1903 but much later for practical use - and the earlier rolls were not large, the large rolled bales were around 1970.  Stationary steam powered square (or rectangular) balers were much earlier than 1900 so in place.

By the way, I like how you've used color on your figures without crossing into that cartoonish look that some seem to favor.  I like the grittier look.  And I really like the Mexican in black.  While that might be his "Sunday go to meeting best outfit" or his party clothes, he sure is distinctive.

Thanks, chaps!  Appreciate the comments.  And methinks the hayrolls will reserve themselves for "modern" games...

And here are all 27 photos of the game.  They show the whole farm, as well as tell a more complete story...

Inspired by Ash on the "Conflicts That came in From the Cold" and "World War 2" boards, I have been taking group shots of my minis, and positing them on the appropriate boards here on the LAF.  My 28mm stuff is first.  My  Modern, Vietnam, WW2, and War of 1812 stuff is already up on those boards.  Here is my Old West stuff.  It is by far my smallest collection.  I need to work on that, methinks yet this year!

Figures are GEG plastics and Knuckleduster metals.

Thanks.  In regards to that last AAR, I think our favorite part was that last outlaw hunting the Indian around the cabin...very cinematic...
