Can anyone tell me if there is a John Wayne figure availiable in 28mm or indeed a figure that looks like him?

I have had a look around but can't seem to find one.

Cheers

There is one in the old glory range that is the splitting image. You will have to contact them to see what code it is in.

Old Glory, in the Plains War series. I think he is in the Marshals pack. Look for the dude in the vest with the rifle over his shoulder. My friend has the movie poster.

TAG do a WWII one.

There is an even better one in the Cowboy Wars pack. Pack #1, I believe. That and the second pack are basically the characters from Rio Bravo, John Chance, Borachon, Colorado, and Stumpy. Sadly, Angie Dickinson didn't make it!

Recommend using Shadowforge's Madame Orr…gorgeous, for Angie.

I am aware of at least three:

Rooster Cogburn ZCW-10 a.k.a. "Morrison"
John Chance ZC-01 a.k.a. "Marion"
Ringo Kid in the Warpaint set "Marshals,Sheriffs, and Lawmen" (difficult to see in the on-line picture)

rddfxx17 Nov 2006 11:08 a.m. PST

ZWC-01,not ZC-01

And if you order the Cowboy Wars pack you get James Cann as Mississippi!

They also do figures from Silverado!

Take a look at Artizan's Cowboy Posse 2. The feller with the ten gallon hat looks like the Duke in his early years.

Cheers guys.

I reckon it will have to be Westwind as Rio Bravo & El Dorado are my favourite westerns.

I like the look of the Old Glory one too, very Duke like, just don't need the 14 other figures.

When i am forced to buy fig i do not need to get trhe one i wanti use that as a chance to make some money and sell tham individually either painted or not painted.

If you're shopping for Cowboy Wars stuff, don't miss the two "Long Riders" packs. No Duke in them, but they are two of my favorites in the range.

Does anyone do a John Wayne from She Wore A Yellow Ribbon, Rio grande, etc. The Cavalry Trilogy. Those would be cool, it seems we have too many Custer's and too few Captain Brittles'.

vforvictory17 Nov 2006 12:25 p.m. PST

How do West Wind compare with Foundry in size and heft?

60th RAR17 Nov 2006 12:56 p.m. PST

We mix Foundry and WW freely in our group. Very little difference IMO.

Rooster Cogburn?
Last year someone advertised a "green" Rooster Cogburn. Who is making this miniature please? Sorry if this is a repeat.
Thanks,
Bill

The dismount from ZCW-01 is armed with a shotgun rather than a Winchester, so he's more Big Jake than John T.

Both the Cowboy Wars are pretty good: the Warpaint one less so, and more unfortunately he's a tad short.

CRUSADER seem to do one with an eye patch

charles popp10 May 2012 2:21 p.m. PST

Mr Reed, Silverado? Cool What pack/figures do you suggest?

Willtij11 May 2012 10:11 a.m. PST

Found an older not-John Wayne with eyepatch

mondayknight.com/Index.html

Under Sheriff with Eye Patch in their Desperado Miniatures line

Also a not-Clint Eastwood under Miniature with No Name

Looks like they are having a sale too.

Knucledusters' OW28-106 ("Heroes") has 2 JW lookalikes.

Is the Knuckleduster range the one that has John Wayne listed as "The Duck"? If this is the one that I'm thinking of, it is a superb figure – best I've seen.

viking03 May 2020 2:11 p.m. PST

Yes Knuckleduster does several different John Wayne figures
