2nd try.
Does anyone know of any range which has 15mm Zombie Cowboys, ACW troops or Indians?
All undead, zombie, skeletons figures seem to be the classical Jason and Argonauts style, with Splintered Light doing some Orcs, Dwarves and Beastmen.
Or a couple of ranges doing Nazis.

But sadly no-one does the West. Is this a large gap in the market?

Is there a suitable range of 15mm figures, which might be a bit old or rough or have suitable poses which could be converted to Undead?
ACW or Wild wild West?

I'd love to see where this is leading.

Perhaps an undead hero, protecting the living from others of his kind? And a new series … Dead Dead West? :)

With my luck, someone has probably already thought of that premise and title.

PS. Plastic 1/72 scale cowboys (I think Airfix is closer to 1/87) could be trimmed (zombified) a little bit with clippers, warmed up in hot water and put in all kinds of poses:

You could even have Texans vs Mexicans refighting the Alamo:

AWESOME, the characters could be Grim West and his sidekick Artery Gordon.

Or another idea:
The Gold Miners/Prospectors either let loose a horde from a mine shaft or they dig up some "disease" from the ground that turns them. A twist on Deadwood. link It could be called "Un-Deadwood".

The Dead Dead West would be a fantastic idea. You better TM that straight away before FOX steals it and then cancels it after a season due to high ratings.
Refighting the Alamo or any battle for ever after death…the pathos. Truely scarey idea, knowing that might be your fate…
