Only A Fistful of Lead can do this...
« on: January 04, 2018, 02:18:15 PM »
We had three gangs entering Dead Man's Gulch's Mexican quarter. Tuco and his scumbags looking for the hostage they'd misplaced during the night before's long bath in Tequila. Colonel Mortimer and his men, intent on finding said hostage (his daughter Millie) and then chastising Tuco severely... with lead. The Man with no Brayn led the last bunch, who wanted the bounty on Tuco's melon, and to thin out the sudden infusion of Lawdogs into the Gulch.
Battle was joined with a severely hungover Tuco and The Man with no Brayn blazing away at each other mid street, as their underlings got stuck in Colonel Mortimer's men lurked about a bit! Suddenly Pedro the Bastard's Winchester jammed, and he dropped it and set of running round the village looking in all the buildings! As men on all sides were killed around him Pedro ran through a blizzard of lead on his lunatic quest. The Man with no Brayn dropped Tuco who was sent to Boothill by both barrels of a scattergun as he lay wounded, The Man with no Brayn then following from a rifle shot of remarkable accuracy triggered by Colonel Mortimer's marksman. As the gunsmoke cleared Colonel Mortimer and three of his men were the last men standing.  Suddenly (again!) Pedro the Bastard came streaking past on the last lap of his unarmed marathon. He sprinted into the last house to be searched and found Millie Mortimer cowering in the corner, he drew his revolver and... deadman's click!
Remembering he'd run out of bullets two hours back Pedro the Bastard he drew his Bowie knife and went in for the kill just as Colonel Mortimer burst through the door. Seeing Daddio galvanised Millie into action and she threw herself into the Colonel's arms. Which was a tad gormless as this allowed Pedro the Bastard the split second needed to bury his knife in the Colonel's neck and kill him! As Millie, swooned away at the sight of Daddy's dee-mise, the Colonel's surviving three men burst into the little room, with not enough space for gunplay, a terrible melee developed. Pedro the Bastard wounded all three before getting his melon stove in with a cast iron cooking pot... Millie was free!
Her first task, a sad little procession to Boot Hill with Daddio in tow... wearing a pine overcoat.

Only A Fistful of Lead can do this!!!

Thanks for the pictures, those adobe houses look very good, do the roofs lift off, it looks like you have a hand hold to lift them off but there didn't appear to be a gap around the roof.

I don't mean to be rude but I don't think I would want to go home with Millie, although your mileage may differ. :)

Some of the roofs lift off so you can fight inside. As regards Millie, she's entitled to look a tad manky... her Dad's just died!

Looks like a problem with the Facebook image hosting, if you right click the image placeholder and 'open image in new tab' it takes you to
