This range is a western gunfight range with a little difference. Having lived through the age of the Hollywood Western, some good, some bad, some amazing we all realised that no matter what our age we all had favourite characters from the cinema for this genre. 

Yes we had a tendency to whinge about the accuracy of the costumes or the weapons and sometimes the story lines. And why can't the Indians (that's Native Americans today.) win for once. But the obvious fact was that cinema had more impact on us than the real history. As a young lad I would rush home from Cub Scouts, via the chip shop for a bag of chips and a pickled onion, to get home in time to see The High Chaparral on BBC 2. I always missed the first 10 minutes but it never ruined the story.

This range is also about the characters that the actors created more than the actual actor. John Wayne is credited with 84 films and although his acting style was wrapped around his Hollywood persona he created a number of superb characters. It is for this reason that this range is more about the film character than the actor portraying the part although it is only one step away from honouring those incredible actors. With this in mind we pay particular attention to the physical height and size of the actor / character and so the figures jump up and down depending on the actors height. Its been an education to see how may actors are well over 6 foot. We have included a few comparison shots with figures from other companies so you get the idea. What is interesting is that Foundry figures also jump and the Apache's are sadly small, although lovely figures. Anyway see what you think.    

With these type of memories it seemed logical when designing a western gunfight range that we concentrate on film and television rather than just history. So prepare for the release of characters that you will, hopefully, recognise and not only bring back nostalgic memories but allow you to put them into your games. 

Please note that all figures come unpainted and the painted figures shown are done so as painting guides.

Worth looking in is the Miscellaneous room that also holds some related treasures for Western Gunfights.
