Yeah I was going to add Gutshot but their page is down and their blog doesn't have much on it - so I don't recall the price or if it's currently available, etc.

I have a few copies at the bargain price of £10 + postage (pm or email me). Or pick them up at upcoming shows:
Overlord Abingdon; Legionary Exeter; Attack Devizes; Colours; Warfare.

I have Gutshot and Blackwater Gulch, but right now have stacks of K-cups and Kurig type coffee machines blocking access to my book shelves.


If no one else posts the info before I can get these piles of boxes out of here I'll dig them out and get the info.

Hawgleg seems to be recovering:


UPDATE: March 01, 2017

Tech support says they have caught the varmints responsible for the failure and are working on a solution.

With any luck, things should be back online by March 6. VERY sorry for the problem, folks!

And em4 has Gutshot listed at £20.40 http://www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/Links.html

Ask at the LAF, and answer shall thy be given!

Here is the info for BWG Smiley

Rules: Blackwater Gulch (Gangfight Games)
Type (Hollywood, Historical, Weird?): Weird
Cost: 1st Edition $5, 2nd Edition TBD, free PDF
PDF or Book?: Both
Miniatures Needed: 5-10 per player.
Table Size Suggested: 3'x3'
Currently available?: Yes
Supported by a miniature line?: Yes
Website: http://www.blackwatergulch.com/

Kind of in between editions at the moment. The 2nd edition won't be released till this summer or fall, not exactly sure of the retail price for the rules, hoping for "Less than $50" hopefully will be closer to $40. The rules will be in a nice box set that contains a hardcover rulebook, deck of Loot Cards, custom tokens for objective markers and damage, and some fancy dice.

There will also be a free "just the rules" pdf.. the free rules will be part of our generic "Gangfight Skirmish Rules" that let you use the same exact rules for all different kinds of genres & settings. BWG is just the first official printed Gameworld Ruleset.

Rules: Gunslinger 1982, from The Avalon Hill Game Company
Type (Hollywood, Historical, Weird?): Historical
Cost: Out of Print (find old copies on eBay, Consimworld, BoardGameGeek)
PDF or Book?: 1982 old cardboard wargame, rules, cardboard tokens, cards, maps
Miniatures Needed: maximum of 7 miniatures for player characters in the game
Table Size Suggested: originally hex maps, but could expand and play without hexes using modifications
Currently available?: No, out-of-print, but many copies printed, so available via eBay, Consimworld, BoardGameGeek
Supported by a miniature line?: No.
Website: On BoardGameGeek: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/1044/gunslinger

This is not merely the most exciting western gunfight game that I've ever played, but is also the most exciting game of interpersonal combat of any type that I've ever played. Players choose actions via a set of actions available in a hand of cards. Each turn represents 2 seconds of real time, and each turn has 5 increments of time representing 0.4 seconds. Different actions take different numbers of increments of time, and this may vary depending on the speed of the gunfighter.

Players can choose to accumulate aim points that improve the odds of hitting. Shots are resolved by pulling cards from a deck. The game has a set of hex maps which include many different building interiors. The cardboard pieces for characters are round, so they look like miniature bases, and miniatures can easily be substituted. Would not be too hard to convert the game to use regular miniatures terrain with distance measurements and no hexes.

Very detailed and realistic game, more so than what most miniatures players want to deal with. But the payoff is much more tension and excitement for the players. I've seen this game taught to a group of 7 players in about 10 to 15 minutes at a convention. So it can be learned quickly from a teacher. In my opinion, a masterpiece.

Sailors have more fun!
