Thanks for the tip on making sombrero and ponchos i will give it a try.
Homies are not available in the UK but I have found them on ebay(US version) it looks like series 7 is the most suitable.
I also had a fruitless visit to a few war games stores they seem only to stock fictional intergalactic characters, I dont think 'Skar the skull crusher' is suitable for my layout. But hey nothing is easy in life

OK-you mentioned the chupacabra and here is a photo of one such creature taken on a dark night outside of Mogollon. "Chupie" was hiding in an ore car when suprised by a dude with a camera. This may be the only clear photo of a chupacabra and "went viral" down at the Bloated Goat later in the day.
The chupacabra has been blamed for the death of a local, found under the Pinos Altos bridge.
Woodie-that Chupacabre is just plain creepy. Michael-another source Ive used is the set of O scale miners that can be picked up on ebay, iirc there were about 20 figures including a couple of men panning for gold and a couple of coolies. Cant remember the name of the company off the top of my head

Ronnie-old Chupie was made from an old Airfix 1:32 WW1 military figure with a "20 Mule Team" mule's muzzle and ears stuck on. Then he was covered with Tamiya body putty all teased up and funky. What you can't see is his legs which came from the same old mule. You really can't model a SW narrow gauge scene without a chupacabra somewhere. The dead guy under the bridge was one reason I got banned from another web site...a couple of guys complained that it was "too gruesome". They had better stay away from a military model shop, there are several "gruesome" scenes to choose from.
