The LOTOW facebook link isn't related to LOTOW, but of people telling stories and sharing photos of their great grand daddy's...

The FB site is called Warhammer Legends of the old west.

Ill add the link tomorrow at work.

Great idea and great thread.

I would however call the LotOW games not only Hollywood, but also historical. They do try and tried not to mix too crazy stuff together and have nice sections about the historical west.
Also the subsequent books in that line included larger fights, sieges with companies and real hollywood style.

Nevertheless thanks for starting this!

Updated, also adding a Lead Adventure Contact for those who have a presence on this board (frequently at least). Trying to keep it to the producers/manufacturers/authors.

Are you wanting just skirmish games, or other types of games as well?

For example, I have been binge-painting Western figures for over a month now for Shadows of Brimstone, but it is a board game, not a traditional miniatures game.

I'd say miniatures games only since that's really the aim of the forum - a way to lead new players to available rules.

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.
