Has anyone tried  Faces of Horror?

It seems to be a variant of the Face of Battle skirmish rules.
Introduction on their website says
Quote
Faces of Horror (FoH) is a new miniatures game from the designer of The Face of Battle. The game covers all characters, heroes, villains, creatures and monsters from literature and movies over the last few centuries. You can play The Mummy, Dracula, The Werewolf or modern horrors like Jason, Crawlers, or Rage Zombies.


Apologies if anyone's mentioned this before, I'm a new arrival here and just started sniffing around the boards.





Welcome on board. :)

Never heard of these rules before, where do you get them?

Where can one purchase the CinC rules?  Old Glory doesn't list them, nor does the Four Color Figures site.  Also wasn't Chaos in Cairo supposed to be reprinted?

The new CinC rules are due out later this year, using the same game mechanisms as Chaos in Carpathia.  Blue Moon were waiting for the new figures to be ready for sale before launching the new rules.

You can get the Carpathia PDF here:

I understand Ganesha Games will shortly be bringing out Fear and Faith for horror type games.

No more information at present, I'm afraid.  However, they should be out shortly and I will post if I learn anything more.

I did ask if they would be suitable for the likes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Andrea did indicate that BTVS was a source of inspiration for the rules.

Just joined this forum and wanted to add in that I enjoy Chaos in Carpathia, I have also played the Ganesh games Fear and Faith which aren't bad but I prefer CiC. Still waiting for Chaos in Cairo to come out though, at the same time any recommendations for Foreign Legion figs?

Shawnt, Cairo is out in .pdf form. A print version will be out within the next month or so I think.

Sorry, but is Gothic Horror: Vampire Wars the original Westwind rule set, or a reworked one?

Thanks!

Is C in  C still the clear winner?

Thanks, Malamute.

I've worked out 'bad' rules before, even enjoyed the same on occasion. Not sure I'm up to it at the moment, though.

Looks like I'm on my way to Carpathia.

Doug

Edit: Of course, within a couple of days, I noticed one of my co-owners had dropped a copy of GH:VW into our used bin. Malamute, I may have some questions for you shortly...
