New listener, first time caller!

Those thoughts and comparisons were well thought out and showed some mental effort was devoted before opening mouth to insert foot(which didn't happen here prior planning prevents p--- poor performance after all!)

I have never done old west, but, I'd probably like to do a Custer disaster game sometime. And the comparisons are great! Thanx!
Me likey! Thanx for the thread and good luck in the future!

I can certainly recommend Rail Wars - great for traditional realistic Old West games as well as for things going weird and bump in the night, especially if you like characterful games with a roleplaying element. There figures are great - tad large when compared to the like of Wargames Foundry but still passable. The Rail Wars box set comes with a few miniatures as well as card stock buildings to get you started see: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/12957/deadlands-the-great-rail-wars and http://boardgamegeek.com/image/344619/deadlands-the-great-rail-wars.

Some of those are really cool. I wonder how they'd look next to Malifaux figures. Might have to dig out some of my Bronze Age cursed earth figures for an indication of the probable size.

Nice thread.  I have just started playing in a Deadlands RPG campaign, and I am quite enjoying it.  Sadly, we are playing remotely, so no miniatures.  But when our Friday night gaming group starts meeting again, I am planning on introducing them to Deadlands, and there will be many, many minis.

Some of the Highgate Miniatures vampires look like they should work well in the old West setting.  The bulk of my Western figures are Black Scorpion, and the Highgate minis are a bit small in comparison to them... but the BS figures are on the tall side compared to most old West ranges.

Only ten years late (: but here's a pic I took of some OOP RW figures on some khaki plush flannel I picked up at Joann's for under $20. On the left side are Reaper's Bones I Savage Worlds figures, which unfortunately have poor detail on the faces. You can get the original metal versions from Pinnacle Entertainment Group. In the background and on the right side are the GR paperstock and some metal figures. The bases are narrow, so the figures fall over. :P

Might as well also mention that Pinnacle Entertainment Group has a KS for its Doomtown: Reloaded card game base set. No miniatures, but any card flopper who likes the weird west should take a look at it. The base set will be available retail, of course. : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pineboxllc/doomtown-weird-west-edition



My DIY Contrast mix:
* White-primed miniature lightly pre-inked in a dark shade.
* 1 drop acrylic ink in a small pot of paint (eg. children's craft paint). Do not mix.
* Dip the brush in the ink. As you paint, you can dip into the paint to make the layer more opaque.
