I'd play as long as John Wayne wasn't explicitly invoked.

I think all of us have seen one if not all of the John Ford action-packed U.S. cavalry vs. Indians pictures.

John Wayne led a terrific group of actors in (I believe) three movies that seared an image in my mind of how the US cavalry looked in or around the late 1870s.

The uniforms he created are how many of us would like to see our "Nathan Brittles" Cavalry Troopers (authentic or not) move across the western landscape to engage the Apache, Commanche, Sioux or Cheyenne warriors.

The bent-up hats, white gauntlets, scarfs tied around the neck just right - and, of course, the best detail - "the white suspenders." Troopers just need those white suspenders to look right.

So my question to you gamers is, would you be motivated to wargame the "Western Indian & U.S. Cavalry Wars" if these miniatures were available?

I would like your input because if there are enough of us out there, I will have a complete series of U.S. cavalry figures produced to give us that great cinematic look to game with.

The scale I would like to do (at present time, because of cost) would be 15-18mm.

OK Troopers, let me here you sound off.

Forwarrrd Yoooooo!
