Just starting of in Old West gaming.

Are there any online sources for scenarios for perhaps a dozen figures each side?

Louis L,Amour stories. They are exciting and fast reading. Full of great characters and plots/scenarios.

Smaller than a dozen, but check Board Game Geek's page for "Cowboys – Way of the Gun". There are loads of movie based scenarios. Aain smaller, but Bob Boze Bell's "Famous Gunfight" books are pefect, basically each story is a scenario.

Seems it would not take much to come up with 100s of them on your own?

Fistful of Lead has a scenario book as well as scenarios available through Wargame Vault.

There are some great free scenario downloads on the Hawgleg page (publishers of Gutshot)

A lifetime supply of potential scenarios:

Encyclopedia of Indian Wars: Western Battles and Skirmishes 1850-1890.

Reading it now. Has all the big battles but most of the encounters were skirmish-level affairs, raids, counter raids, and the like.
