TABS Old West Faction Concept Art
"Cowpoke - 100 pts.
Basic fluff unit of the Old West faction but with a twist! When the battle starts he draws his weapon. 40% chance to equip a knife (normal melee dmg). 40% chance to equip a bottle (normal melee dmg). 10% chance to be unarmed (weaker melee but can grab with one hand). 10% chance to equip a pistol (weaker melee but short range revolver which can be fired once per 5 seconds).

Cacti-guy - 140 pts.
Shield unit. Similar properties to the Haybaler but has shorter reach in melee. Causes minor damage to any enemy units in extreme close range, and considerable damage to any unit that grabs him. (Good Halfling and Minotaur counter)

Frontiersman - 180 pts.
Ranged unit. Good accuracy but long reload time. Similar to medieval Archer.

Wrangler - 800 pts.
Cavalry armed with a a cavalry saber and a lasso. Rides through enemy formations, but on his approach throws a lasso to snare a single unit and can drag them behind him causing damage over time. Also swings saber while in melee range.

Sheriff - 950 pts.
Leader/Hero unit with a revolver (short range), cavalry saber and good HP. Primarily a melee fighter, so will not stop to fire his pistol, but shoots as he advances (3 shots per 5 seconds?) and will continue to shoot while in melee. Fast and unrelenting melee attack speed similar to the Chieftain, with a 50% chance to parry any incoming melee strikes.

Posse Wagon - 1500 pts.
A stampeding brute cavalry unit. A strong cart horse pulls the wagon through enemy lines, while two mounted passengers fire 2 short range revolvers and 1 long range rifle at any enemy units within range.

Gatling - 1750 pts.
Similar in function to the Hwacha. Fires a steady stream of bullets before overheating / needing to reload. Able to rake laterally across enemy lines. Marginally longer reload time than the Hwacha."

Thanks for all the comments!
@Lionbreaker08 Yeah, they are. But when you say "aren't they already in the game?" have a look at the date I drew this, and the date that the western faction came to TABS ;)
(spoiler: They loved the artwork and sent me some merch and then months later the western faction appeared in the game)

I really like the idea of the Frontiersman. That's what pissed me off about the actual Western faction, and that it has no cheap ranged unit. This is perfect for that, and I don't know why Landfall didn't come up with this sooner.

suggestion: add a secret plan map where there a bunch of unused concept units in the form of secret units, this would add more variety to the game AND LET ME FIND SOME MORE SECRETS!

im only asking is it possible that as a secret you are able to get the units that didn't make it to the final product?

( rus) арт очень даже пригодный но единственное на что я бросил свой взгляд это повозка мне кажется она должна обязательно быть в игре как секретка
(eng) the art is very useful but the only thing I looked at was the cart I think it should definitely be in the game as a secret

well... aren't all but the posse wagon already in the game?

also cowpoke seems fun because of the randomness
