Fistful of Lead...
« on: August 20, 2017, 08:43:19 AM »
Drums Along The River!

Tuesday's game will feature a marooned stagecoach surrounded by hostile Injuns. Luckily Doc Pearson will be aboard to tend wounds and deliver a pregnant ladies's baby. the driver and travelling Cavalry Occifer, will be all that stand between the Redskins and a gory massacree!
Sometime during the long, hot and dusty day, a Cavalry bugle will sound heralding the arrival of the Powder River patrol... the same bugle will attract The Great Lame Beaver's War Party to see wot all the commotions about!

:o
"Wot did you do in the war Grandad?"

"I was with Harry... At The Bridge!"

Nice-looking (if a bit disreputable) group!

I need a stagecoach...

Harry did you break you stagecoach just for a game - now that's dedication.

Is it the 4 ground one?

Looking forward to the game report

Yep, it is the 4Ground model. The front wheel assembly is held in place cleverly by magnets, so it's easy to dismantle then pose as if wrecked... I nearly broke it with the killing hands several times while trying to build the bleedin' thing!

At the moment we keep track of activations with rather clunky looking markers that I'm not right happy about. This will be rectified next visit to the range when an activated bloke will get a shiny brass .22 rimfire case stood next to him... much more in keeping with a lead slinging game. One wound gets a little white skull, two wounds warrants a nice blood splatter... the bigger the better for the more loathsome combatants! Out of ammo is a plastic bullet marker marked... 'ammo'!

Cheers - i bought the warbases one and it looks a little on the small side to me but im not really sure how big they were. So looking foward to seeing yours with some figures for scale

Your pictures seem to have disappeared in the mean time.

Here's the 4Ground Stage with a couple of figures for scale. The building is one of our very own, has.been's creations, much better looking than owt laser cut. I think he's still got some Wild West buildings if any body is after some.
