GFI/Minifigs is proud to announce release of:

"The Best of the West"

A range of 15mm figures from the American West!

Stagecoach

This range of Minifigs, when used with the excellent range of Musket Miniatures buildings and accessories, provides endless possibilities for western gaming scenarios.

Our free rule set Bite the Bullet will provide you with hours of "Beer and Pretzels" fun in the Wild West. Rules and scenario ideas are available as free downloads from our website.

Gunfight

"While we are promoting this range in a fashion akin to a Spaghetti Western, these figures are perhaps the best sculpts and meticulously researched figures ever done from the hands of the talented Mr. David Higgs! " says Tom Dye, "Until I did some research for sculpted historical accuracy, I just took for granted that the range was merely 'representational.' I was surprised to see the variations (as one example) in the feathers in the headdress of the Indians! Ends of feathers are cut, pieces removed and some are angled downward, all having meaning to the status and war record of the warrior to the tribe! Incredible in 15mm!"
