Very nice, figures & painting.
Are they metal, resin or printed?

Some very nice figures and very well painted.  But it seems as if the cowboys in pictures 4 and 6 all patronised the same haberdashery.  A little variation across the range (pun intended) would have been nice (it is not as jarring for the banditos). I know that they are called "vacqueros," but only 1 figure in Vacqueros B and two figures in Vacqueros are actually dressed as Vacqueros (with the short jacket); the rest look like cowboys and would have benefited from different headgear.

Yeah, it's fair to say there has been a bit of digital cut and paste  probably to keep initial costs down. Sensibly priced though so forgivable in my book.

If I didn't already have more Wild West figures than I will ever use I would grab several of those .... who am I kidding, I'm already hankering after the Mexicans ... and prospectors .... and bank robbers .... and vaqueros .... OK, I see one pack of each in my future :-)

As to the similarity of dress ... it depends how many tailors/ seamstresses you think your imaginary town has I guess.

Ooooooooooooo...some really nice figures in there. Not a big fan of the guy dragging his rifle through the dirt pose, but otherwise some really nice figures.

Those look very nice.  I've always painted a few cowboys here and there, but think I want to take the plunge into the Old West in the upcoming year.
