Thanks for your review RnT!

You've allayed some of my concerns.

I just got my order of these figures in today. I think they are quite fantastic in detail and crispness. I am pretty sure they are from 3D printed Masters which really helps in how the details stand out. Finally some one making figures of the same quality as the fantasy figure market (which I think are these guys main market).

The figures are posed a bit on the "old west Hollywood movie" side, which is what I really like about them. They look like they just came out of "Deadwood" or "Hell on Wheels". There is a lot of character molded in to these figures vs the Stadden figure. Those are excellent too, but a little flat in character.

The Knuckleduster figures are a treasure for me in some upcoming dioramas in the works for the period. Thanks to Dave for posting them here!!!

Also excellent service. When I ordered, they were shipped the same day.

I hope these guys continue to do more.

Now if I can only find the same quality and character in some 1920's Gangsters!!!

Håkan:

Thanks for taking the time to make a comparative photograph of the various figures. The Knuckleduster's look "good enough" to my eyes. Perhaps with some judicious filing on certain aspects, they could be improved further. ("Improved" for photographs, mainly. I suspect under typical viewing circumstances they will fine and dandy as is.) I don't know if any can be used in my 1880s Ozark setting... but I don't have much to choose from, so I suspect there will be some Knuckleduster folk in my hills.

In my opinion, it's obvious that the best of the lot (in fidelity and "crisp" detail) in your photo is the Preiser figure.

All fer now!

Thank you Håkan for your time and examples. From the picture, Knuckleduster figures will work for me then.

Hi
Sorry for the delay. Here is the picture. The large one is a Bachmann OO figure. The one on the right is a Preiser HO.

Thanks for the link Dave. Just ordered all of them!

Many thanks, I'm hoping they are closer to the Preiser figures, and not the OO scale. Looking forward to your picture example.

Thanks Håkan for the picture. Are their figures close to the HO scale, or more toward the 1:72 scale size??? I like the looks of some of their figures, but before I buy any, I'm just reaching out for any and all added information about them. Thanks!
masonamerican Posted - 07/03/2019 : 3:53:55 PM
They are very nice although the details are a bit excaggerated. Somewhat like Weston figures in style.
I have used them on the layout. Here is a photo.

Thank you Dave! I thought I knew all the western figure companies. Guess I missed this one. Or, they just started going from gamming figures to adding Railroad type figures.
The long horns and horses look like the type from Fun & Games company. I like the way these look, and some of those western cowpokes look like what Verne Niner, Thunder Mesa, used on his layout. The prices look good also. And with them being from here in the U.S. in Normal, IL., I'll be making an order for the HO figures. Thanks again for sharing this information.

Yup, with you modeling a layout based on the west coast, the Chinese laborers would definitely be nice to represent. I remember reading my Central Pacific book "High Road To Promontory" about the Chinese and what they accomplished, and I came away from that with a totally new respect for them.
