Question about the Witchfinder general Rules...
« on: July 23, 2019, 11:07:48 PM »
Okay not a question about the rules themselves but are they still commercially available?

Warlord had them (sold out a while ago) and i cant remember who published them.

Yes there are.

I don't remember from whom. Wherever, I believe I just googled Witchfinder General rules and found them.

Did so found this ''The Witchfinder General rulebook and the Stickler Mitchell and Young Megan figures are no longer available from this site. Warlord Games may still have some stock available. Thank you for your interest in the game.''

Ah well...to the sales section!

Okay, I found them.

Dashing Dice games still has the rules. You can get them there for 15 pds.

Is Dashing Dice still a going concern, though? I emailed them earlier this year about the rules (as their own website says they are out of stock) to ask and never heard back from them.

On their own website: "The Witchfinder General rulebook and the Stickler Mitchell and Young Megan figures are no longer available from this site. Warlord Games may still have some stock available. Thank you for your interest in the game." - http://www.dashingdicegames.co.uk/page5.html

I did wind up getting a barely-used copy of Witchfinder General from a fellow LAFer who had bought but never used them. Haven't played them yet but they've got some interesting ideas. I might wind up just house-ruling some of the bits into Pulp Alley as it's been my go-to skirmish game for several years now.

My bad for posting if not. I assumed they were still active because I found their web page.
Didn't look any deeper.

It would seem they are gone (a damn shame) skrapwelder is sorting me out with some rules so mission accomplished!

This is one of those rule sets that I kept putting off and then found it was too damned late

sadly, they weren't great rules - nothing really original, lobbed in with a load of anachronistic vampires to appeal to Warhammer players...

Drop Andy a line at Ainsty Castings. I *think* we have a couple of copies left and we might even have some of the minis knocking about.
Colours in for cash!
