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

Cardstock Dane: Why is beef kebab more common han lamb ditto? It's a disgrace!

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

gav: seen them was thinking a bit dodgy, that's cleared up. I take it the plastic ones I am seeing are the same.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: Found the video, uhm, I don't speak German but I think he likes them.

shep: Ah, I see. Good to know.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.

shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
