So many hard choices this round! I do so love it when contestants go the extra mile with staging. Thanks for making my day, both of you :)

One of two very tough ones for me this round. Brilliant.

And I do love the red. Vivid, yet not gaudy, loud, garish ... knallig in German ...

Awesome scene Tsar, really vibrant and great work on the patterns. I hope to see more views of that wagon in the future  :)

I was going for a somewhat subdued red-orange, like the sun disk in ancient Egyptian artwork.

Both entries are brilliant. Still finding new details every day.  :o

Who makes the snake charmer and who the vigilantes (especially the guy on the far right)?

The snake charmer is from Eureka miniatures, there's three packs of Indian civilians, fakirs, etc.

The vigilante on the far right is from the Foundry Old West range, there were some townsfolk packs- I think he may be in one of those.

Wow!  They're both fantastic!

I put the Egyptian one just a tiny bit ahead because I'm from the US and I find pulp Egypt more interesting than cowboys.  Also, a great job painting that black jacket.  I'll try to learn from that example.

I, too, voted for the pulp entry, but I simply must acknowledge the amazing fabric patterns on the wild west figures. The kilt and the plaid trousers in particular are top-notch.

No kidding.  That's some incredible painting.

Tsar, who makes the Scotsman with the two pistols? I'm not familiar with that figure.
