I was combing through the Reaper site out of curiosity to see just how many cowboys, cowgirls, etc., were in the Chronoscope line, and since I went to all the trouble, I figured I'd post a list of items I found that might work well for Deadlands -- including, of course, the official Savage Worlds Deadlands miniatures.

(Edited for organizing purposes.)

In particular:
Chronoscope - Cowboys, Cowgirls & Such:
* 50003: Ellen Stone, Cowgirl

* 50023: Doc Holiday
* 50049: Rio Wilson, Cowboy
* 50076: Jeb Lawson, Western Outlaw
* 50105: Davey Crockett (wrong time period; perhaps a mountain trapper/frontiersman)
* 50111: Diamond Sue Dawson, Cowgirl
* 50240: Buck Fannin, Cowboy
* 50244: Victoria Jacobs, Cowgirl
* 50249: Deadeye Slim, Cowboy
* 50251: Hank Callahan, Gunslinger

An excellent and astoundingly handy list, Jordan. I believe you remain "the man."

I do believe voodooists get beast friend, which handily covers a rat swarm.

There are of course other figures that would work great (such as various unique monsters and any number of demons), but I tried to limit it to fairly "archetypical" monsters and characters that didn't have trappings that placed them too strongly in a time period OTHER than the Weird West. Hence, I didn't include the various "beastmen" dressed up in armor or fancy "fantasy garb" who could otherwise pass for werecreatures. Also, the only skeleton I've got is that one rising out of the grave, since it's not carrying a sword and/or shield, and it's not dressed up like a pirate ... though I suppose various of the undead pirates would work fine for some "pirate's curse" adventure in the Maze.

I saw that one, and I'm sure that'd work fine by some folks, but I made the arbitrary judgement that "magician's assistant in leotard bottom" was just a little too ahead of its time for the late 19th century, compared to what passed for risque in archetypical burlesque shows. (For similar reasons, I figured that Vermina was pushing it with her attire, but perhaps if she conjures up rats to follow her around, she simply doesn't CARE about conventions of propriety appropriate to the time period.)

Spandex and leotards seem to evoke later time periods, even if certain elements of the costume (top hat, jacket) are meant to hearken back to "yesteryear."

I found a few pretty strong candidates for Martial Artist in their Monk section.

http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/monk/sku-down/02009

Krupp the Heretic would make a good sifu, or even an older martial artist!

http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/monk/sku-down/02731

Yuri for a barehanded monk...

http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/monk/sku-down/02279

Baalbek would make an... interesting... character.

http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/monk/sku-down/02511

Midori here is so 15th century Chinese it almost hurts me - hurts me not to have her!

http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/monk/sku-down/02847

Jade Tiger makes a good candidate for an ambidextrous armed monk - or barehanded, if you wanted to clip those kamas out of his hands.

This isn't a reaper fig, but this mini makes we want to grab my books and make a character immediately.

Many of the Outcast line for Malifaux would work, especially for Weird Scientist types or anything where a darker, steampunkish feel might be desired.

One thing I've really wanted in the Reaper line for Deadlands would be miniatures that can pass for civilians, despite the tendency for just about everyone to be armed. I found a couple of miniatures that work well for conversions to represent Victorian-era lady bystanders/noncombatants.

Reaper Savage Worlds 59009 - Mad Scientist (female) - converted


This is another "Mad Scientist (female)" mini that I picked up, specifically for conversion purposes.  She's by far one of the more modest Reaper offerings, so unlike the Alice mini, no conversion was required to make her look more like a "prim and proper Victorian lady."  I removed the mad-science gizmos and gave her some alternative hands.  The hand holding the "lace fan" is actually from an Indy HeroClix "Tomoe" figure.  The base is a resin scenic base from War Cast Studios.

For comparison, here's the miniature painted up without conversion:


... and for another possibility:

Reaper Chronoscope 50057 - Miss Scarlet, Wild West Madam


This is assembled and painted up without conversion, but I have several more "Miss Scarlets" on the worktable with left-arm swaps so I can have some Victorian-era bystanders (with a few other minor modifications to try to make the figures look a little less like clones of each other).  Fortunately, the Chronoscope mini comes with the hand holding the shotgun as a separate piece, so it's very easy to make conversions. (I'm working on one holding another "Tomoe" lace fan -- fortunately the Tomoe figure has fans in BOTH HANDS -- and another holding a parasol over the shoulder rather than a shotgun.)

The base is the standard 30mm base, but I inserted some Apoxie Sculpt and made a textured "tile" pattern for visual interest.

Also, a few Chronoscope heroes:


Pictured (L to R):
* 50111 Diamond Sue Dawson, Cowgirl
* 50155 Mickey O'Doul, Wild West Bartender
* 50045 Jesse Moonwalker, Werewolf Tracker

(Jesse was slightly modified in that I gave him a cigar to chomp on, just because. Now I just need to find a mini to represent his human form.)

A couple more miniatures that I intend to use for games of Deadlands Reloaded:

Reaper Chronoscope #50124: Merlock the Magnificent


Reaper Chronoscope #50125: Yvette, Magician's Assistant


I made some modifications to Yvette, namely by giving her a dress.  The original figure was wearing a leotard, which just didn't seem quite right for a Victorian-era stage performer.

I figure that either of these would make decent Hucksters (especially Yvette, holding the cards), but they would also work for non-magical performer types, heavily relying upon Tricks, Taunts, and Stealth (plus "people skills" such as Persuasion) to hold their own.

...

Reaper Savage Worlds #59007 - Gunslinger


Your basic gunslinger type. I actually painted some weathering on the wanted poster, but out of all the ways I tried to place the lighting for the best shot, this is the closest I could find to actually showing some print on the poster, if not any color. (Most of the time the poster just turned into a white shape, rather than being identifiable as anything readable.) I still have much to learn about proper photography.

Great job, Jordan. I am slowly painting some of mine but with nowhere near the skill with which you have. I especially love the Huckster and the fact that you painted faces on the cards ... that is amazing!

I made amendments to my earlier entry about 59026 (Deadlands Weapons & Accessories), as my pack finally came in at my friendly local game store, the Armadillo Game Shoppe.

Really, I think they could easily make a SECOND pack, what with all the weapons held by other Western folks in the Chronoscope line, and a few Savage Worlds minis that have come out since, but I really couldn't ask for a better selection than this to start with.

Contrary to my previous guesses from pictures of the sprues, this set consists ENTIRELY of weapons from existing Reaper minis in the Savage Worlds line, with hands attached. That makes for easier conversions, but there are no weapons-sans-hands in case you wanted to use the weapons as scenery/decoration. For my purposes, this works perfectly fine. The few hands actually holding non-weapon items (cards, gem, book) actually help with my desire to take a few gun-wielding figures and use them for unarmed civilian types instead (such as the Chronoscope Miss Scarlet).

While technically you could just as easily obtain any of these items by buying the appropriate figure and doing a hand/weapon swap, this provides a slightly less messy alternative.

I'm already mulling over the possibilities. I'm thinking about giving one of my Undead Outlaws a lever-action rifle, and then expanding their gang a bit with some skeletal "old-timers" (skeletons + my "hat-o-matic" + guns). Also, "Uncle Sam" just might become a gunslinger. Wink

P50066C - "Zombie with 2 Weapons" from #50066 "Urban Zombies II" (converted)


I converted one of the "Urban Zombies" to be a new addition to my "Undead Outlaw" gang, with a pistol from #59026 "Deadlands Weapons & Accessories."

The coffin is a room-temperature plastic casting from the "graveyard mold" from Hirst Arts Castlemolds. The noose and "wanted" poster are plastic "bitz" from the Games Workshop Warhammer Fantasy "Empire Flagellants" set. I tried to evoke the morbid imagery of putting a coffin on display outside the undertaker's office (or sheriff's office) with a recently executed criminal, and a sign hanging around his neck to explain his crime, to serve as an "example" to others.

(Originally, I had the plastic coffin, and wanted to figure out a way to incorporate it as a base decoration for a mini, but it was just TOO BIG to fit on a 30mm base ... unless it was standing up. That idea led me in this direction.)

Of course, I need more mad scientists. So...

Reaper #59014 - Savage Worlds Mad Scientist


I imagine this fellow saying something like, "Those fools! They said it was mad; they said it couldn't be done. Well, let's see what they have to say now ... after I TAKE OVER THE WORLD! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!"

The original miniature just has this delightfully crazy grin; I feel sad to have inadequately pulled it out with the paint job, but that's just the level I'm at right now.

The miniature is standing on a home-made base; I inserted some gears and such, though I regret that it's hard to pick them out. (Honestly, they don't exactly "pop" with the unaided eye, either. Doing everything in bronze with Inca gold highlights probably wasn't the best approach, in retrospect. Some alternating steel vs. bronze would have given better contrast.)

The gizmo he's holding aloft is also in the #59026 Deadlands Weapons & Accessories pack; I used one to convert my "Sabertooth Tiger Man" as a Slipstream miniature, turning it into a ray-gun.
