I've been enjoying watching High Chaparral lately (on every night, M-F from 10:00 – 11:00 PM here, and Saturday afternoons/nights too), and was wondering if there are miniatures, in any scale, to represent the characters, and some of the bad guys in the show?

Might as well ask about others while I'm at it:

The Big Valley?
Bonanza?
Maverick?
The Rifleman?
The Clint Eastwood Movies?
Other major TV Western series shows, and/or movies?

Artizan do a 'Good, the Bad and the Ugly' pack.
Brigade do Deadwood if they are of interest to you.

Crusader and ? Blue Moon (the old cowboy wars line)do original Rooster Cogburns.
Knuckleduster do a couple of John Waynes, one with the Rio Bravo upturned hat brim and a more generic one. They also do a very nice Josie Wales and what looks very like Robert Duvall in Open Range – couldnt see Kevin Costner though so it might just be a handy coincidence.

…and of course from an even older generation, Tombstone do a wonderful "Masked Bandit" and a "Sargento" who has just oozed off the screen… superb figures and no mistaking them, especially Garcia…

Hmmm a Maverick would be a nice figure to get. Wouldn't mind the Lonesome Dove pair either.

And a Trampus, definitely need a Trampus.

We at rapierminiatures.co.uk do a skeleton with no name figure…

The "Friendly Rancher and sons" in the West Wind / Old Glory Cowboy Wars line bear a striking resemblance to the Cartwright family.

West Wind do a couple of the Characters from the movie Silverado. Costner with his twin sixguns and Danny Glover with his Henry rifle. They also do James Caan with his shotgun and knife from Rio Bravo, and the Sheriff.

Sorry All, addled brain syndrome strikes again… I meant Boot Hill Miniatures of course… apologies to all, but please check out the site, well worth the visit (and no, I am not an addled sock puppet… who wants promotion from someone who can't get the brand name right lol!!!)

Travellera Inactive Member08 Jan 2013 11:58 a.m. PST

Isn't there a Hickock in the Foundry or Artizan ranges? Dixon has also some characters.

The "Friendly Rancher and sons" in the West Wind / Old Glory Cowboy Wars line bear a striking resemblance to the Cartwright family.

The set also comes with a Hop Sing with coffee pot. I painted them up for TRWNN and call them the Wainwrights.

I tempted by some of your suggestions, but I think I should paint the western figures that I have. As it is, if all the figures were painted and and put on the table, I am at a loss to create a credible scenario to account for the number of lawmen and badmen.

Toshach Sponsoring Member of TMP08 Jan 2013 6:53 p.m. PST

Ebob does a fantastic Clint form the Good the Bad and the Ugly.

Anybody do a Paladin?

Cadian 7th Supporting Member of TMP08 Jan 2013 10:40 p.m. PST

Terrance Hill would be a great addition!
I will someday seriously try to nail down F troop in two forces, one for western games and another to add to my Cadian7th Cav!
For now I'm awaiting the release of the Blackwater Gulch "not" characters!

@silly point…you could always do" my name is nobody" with the 99 gold smugglers or Blazing Saddles….but you will need a lot of topcoat and hat
Dandies for the final fight scene! evil grin

Nobody does TV characters from the 1950'/early 60's.

There are quite a few that i'd love to see:

Paladin, Josh Randall, Brett Maverick, Marshall Dan Troop and Deputy Johnny McKay, Johnny Yuma, Lucas McCain and others. Not gonna happen. We've been asking for years. There is no interest from 28mm manufacturers. There should be at least *some* interst in the Magnificent 7, but nope. Not happening.

>>As it is, if all the figures were painted and and put on the table, I am at a loss to create a credible scenario to account for the number of lawmen and badmen.<<

Nobody says that you should. The variety of TV lawmen would create a variety of scenarios. They don't all have to be on the table at once. But several of them in combination might be very interesting.

Rapier Miniatures Sponsoring Member of TMP09 Jan 2013 2:12 a.m. PST

There is a Magnificent 7 set in 28mm, knuckleduster I think (I could be wrong). I have it along with a piano player from the same maker.

We do need a SlimPickens figure, from any of his westerns to be honest, and of course Mongo on his Yak!

Norman D Landings09 Jan 2013 1:52 p.m. PST

There's a couple of different M7's knocking about… Knuckleduster's, and the Monday Knight range.

Dixons do Cattle Annie and Little Britches.

Everybody does a Man with No Name.
Off the top of my head, TTG (25mm, no longer available), Foundry, Artizan, Reaper, Warrior, eM-4, Mirliton (ex-Grenadier)
Artizan do a full GB&U trio.

Reaper & Knuckleduster each have a Josey Wales.

Knuckleduster and Crusader do a (John Wayne) Rooster Cogburn.

Artizan does Sharon Stone's character from 'The Quick & the Dead'.

Stone Mountain has a Lone Ranger & Tonto.
( and Mike Owen sculpted a Lone Ranger figure as a giveaway with LotOW when it launched.)

West Wind has the Cartwrights.

Monday Knight have the Cisco Kid.

And Airfix did 'The High Chaparral' in 1/72.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Huscarle10 Jan 2013 6:50 a.m. PST

I have a 28mm Wild Bunch set (4 figures), no idea of the manufacturer, picked them up from a remainder bin years ago.

The Shadow Supporting Member of TMP10 Jan 2013 7:13 a.m. PST

I have seen the "Marvelous 7" from Knuckleduster. They look like they can be *any* cowboys. I didn't see any Mag 7 figures at Monday Knight's site. So let me amend what I posted to nobody makes a *good* set of mag 7 figures.

CooperSteveOnTheLaptop10 Jan 2013 12:17 p.m. PST

There are a few Zorros around, including by Boot Hill Miniatures

Norman D Landings10 Jan 2013 4:19 p.m. PST

Shadow, MK's 7 are in the 'bulk packs' section under the title; Seven heroes".

They're underwhelming by today's standards.

Norman

Thanks for the heads up. They appear to be the same sculpts that were produced by Paso Del Norte many years ago.
