Inspired by this thread: TMP link

What "rowdy" women from western movies and TV shows would you like to see produced as miniatures?

I'm not talking about prim and proper ladies like Grace Kelly in High Noon, nor saloon gals like Angie Dickinson in Rio Bravo or Miss Kitty in Gunsmoke. I mean the ladies mostly from the '60s who didn't mind getting their hair mussed-up and could hold their own with the men-folk.

Women like:

Claudia Cardinale as Maria in The Professionals

Or as Jill in Once Upon a Time In the West

Raquel Welch as Sarita in 100 Rifles

Or as Hannie Caulder

Michele Carey as Joey in El Dorado

Brigitte Bardot as Irina in Shalako:

I know someone already does a miniature of Sharon Stone as The Lady in The Quick and the Dead.

Honorable mentions to Kay Lenz in The Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday, Katharine Ross in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Sophia Loren in Heller in Pink Tights, and Jane Fonda in Cat Ballou.

There were also quite a few tough ladies in spaghetti westerns.

Who else deserves to be immortalized in white metal?

Brigade Games has a Calamity Jane figure in one of their Western Characters sets.

To add to your list – how about Shirley Maclaine from Two Mules for Sister Sara?

"Bandidas" followed in that tradition:

I would like a Maureen O'Hara figure from McLintock!,Rio Grande, or Big Jake.

Shadowforge, currently distributed by Eureka, has some excellent figures for these ladies and their, ahem, figures:

Claudia Cardinale remains my favorite…has a Ursula Andress look about her…yum. :D

Definitely Cat Ballou. The accompanying gang and minstrels would be great bonus figs!

Ann-Margret, just because she was hot.

More great suggestions, guys. Keep 'em coming!

Sculptors, take note: I'm not talking about female Western miniatures in general, I'm talking about sculpts that look like *these* famous wildcats, including facial features and style of dress and weapons

Trixie from Deadwood is fun.
