I was just watching the movie Tombstone, and I thought how great it would be to be able to stage the gunfight at the OK Corral using Whiplash Trigger figures. Since there were only (if I'm not mistaken) about 9 principal shooters in the fight, it could be done with a single set of figures on foot (with perhaps a figure of Gabby Hayes or Andy Devine thrown in to round the number to ten).
A set of OK Corral figures would make a perfect platform for running demo games of just about any Old West skirmish rules!

Well hell, these are great! I am currently running a Boot Hill game and was thinking of getting some figures but did not really want to paint anything and BAM!!! My prayers are answered! I look forward to more in this set! I second the victims set, maybe Bandidos & Victims...
Thanks Mightyeroc! I was in a similar situation, running a Microlite20 (Tumbleweed) campaign and thought I should see what cardstock minis were out there. Not a ton of what I needed so I made my own. Five of the Unlikely Heroes are the main player characters of the campaign I just wrapped up. Banditos and victims are coming up in two separate sets. I'm also working on a modular and collapsible terrain system.
I know you've probably got ideas coming out of your ears for these, but I'm looking over my table and feel like I'm missing innocent bystanders--not specifically just victims... Everybody's got a gun, and the town is missing unarmed folks, going-about-their-business-types, characters that will dash for cover at the first shot.
The figures look great together. As you can tell each set of WT I have been experimenting to find "the look". It's somewhere in there. I think the Martial Arts and Retro Space Minis have more of the look and feel I'm going for. It's really awesome that you had some structures to play with. Are you using a particular game system? Thanks for posting these!
I just finished watching the whole series of StarTrek (the Original Series... I LOVE NETFLIX). I never noticed how they encounter SO many races (of course) but they go to planets that are associated with such things as Nazi Germany, Native Americans (two episodes), Greek Gods (3 episodes)... and 3 episodes of the 1960's! ("Edith Keeler MUST die.")
SO, as far as the Smuggler's, I had that EXACT thought as I was watching the Original episodes of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA! There was an episode there Starbuck gets shot down (isn't that EVERY episode?) and he encounters a planet that resembles the old West (and yes, there is the episode of Star Trek where they have the shoot-out at the OK CORRAL). ANyway, Starbuck has a shoot-out with the Cylon, "Red-Eye." (Do you think they call him that because he flies very late at night?)
Ok... that was my useless ramblings!
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?
Feb 26, 2019 12:24:18 GMT -9
Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
