Blame for this one lies equally with David Okum for putting out such great western figurines, and Jon Favreau for obvious reasons.

And now some behind the scenes...
My modified WWG railroad in the foreground.
WWG explosion and fire cinematics added a lot.
The rectangular building in the center foreground (which I took to calling the Boathouse) is made of leftover scraps of FDG and GG pieces.
The Alien Thingy!
Mel's Shoilem Marauder.
A piece of the camp tile from WWG Hinterlands, with my modified railroad again. The tents and water tower are from Whitewash City, and the cacti are Okum's. The bit of the sandy hill there is Mel's. All the pieces in the lumberyard are Dave Graffam's (except for the explosion which is WWG).
Dave Graffam's wagon, covered, with Xtea's clydesdales out in front.
The burned-down house is one of Dave Graffam's ruins. With some of WWG's fire stuffed into those holes, it looked fantastic.
Dave Graffam's magnificent church. The dam, to the left of the covered bridge (also a Graffam model) was freehanded by me using some One Monk textures and leftover Graffam pieces. The waterways, by the way, are Fat Dragon Games', from the Rio Draco set.
The gravestones are Propz Graveyards. There's a One Monk statue there at the end of the walkway, but you can't see it very well.
Smugglers Rowboats from Dave Graffam.
I don't know about you guys, but I got some big fingers and sometimes posing minis is challenging.
I use machine cut discs of full-sheet texture, with a (carefully measured) space for a slot, then I glue those to a plastic slotted-beveled base (a Warmachine or Malifaux base) and use poster putty to secure the tab into the slot.

The original plan was to have a place to test Flying Lead for a Western setup and scenario, but that was before I decided to add the aliens. I'm sure coming up with the aliens' stats would be pretty easy using the weapon build-ups that wonderboy put together in this epic thread.
However, lately we have been messing around with Go For Your Guns, which is a Western-style ruleset being put together by some folks at Beasts of War. It's a basic minis system that uses poker dice for resolution. I think it's got some potential, probably never will be as in-depth as Flying Lead or others, but still fun.
That is just really stunning! I am drooling and deeply admiring that kind of setup. Wow. It's just ... wow.. I'm speechless. I really like how everything fits together so well.. Those animals are great. Where did you get the farm animals (and the hairy horse)?
Definitely, all of the unmounted horses are Xtea's, and the farm animals and dogs are from Horde 30, with some done by Big Jim and some by Scruff, if I remember right.
Also got Jim's donkey and cart in there.
I had wanted to put at least the clydesdale-style pack horses on large bases, but I only ended up having the one unused 50mm, so the bull got it. You can see him and the pig with the rest of the farm animals watching the action in photo #4 of reply #1, and in a couple of the "behind the scenes" shots.
Great looking diorama! Love the set up and elements! Thanks for posting the pack horse image too!
I'm running a western rpg and seeing the paper figures for the towns folk has given me inspiration to use them for minor characters during normal sessions so I can have extras the have get in the way of the PCs! ;D
Vermin King: For Papercuts this year, I am just going to use things created since last Papercuts. Bessie for the model and Onager Longhauler for the kitbash. I was going to build 10 Downing St for a Bessie backdrop, but that ain't happening

Vermin King: I've decided I need to stop trying to get stuff back that I lost and get back to working on new stuff. Until work stuff gets caught up, I need to fight the rebuilding aspect.

Vermin King: My Doctor Who stuff is all gone... and couldn't get onto the company database for 4 1/2 hours today. Life has got to get better

Vermin King: It's been such a nightmare, I haven't been to OBS or your site yet. I just know they are gone

bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download
Aug 21, 2019 18:28:51 GMT -9
Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: Oo, oo! I just saw the Olli Bizer models loading!

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss

wyvern: VK: Now you also have the "joy" of the painfully slow shutdown and reboot every time (at least once a month) that Windows is made "better" by yet more unwanted clutter being downloaded to your system, plus a scatter of useless "desktop.ini" files.

Vermin King: After 3 1/2 hours of updating, I got this xxxxxxxx Win10 computer runnable. I'm really going to miss the ease of Win 7. Amazing all the stuff I did here that is just gone ... except for what I posted

cowboyleland: It looks like you guys are busy, but I would like to point out that the "Ghoul Design Tutorial." which would start to answer bobsomething 's question from Aug 10, is MIA (again)
