Agreed! Great game and I LOVE the cards you did. That Foundry posse has always been my fave group of Old West minis. But I need another project like I need a hole in the head!  lol

Keep up the great work Trev!

Thatís a neat idea for a scenario.  Iíll have to try that.

Glad I could help. 

FYI, a lever-action rifle can indeed break rope by firing at it, say maybe a hangman's noose for example....my younger brother and I rigged a rope suspending a 75 lb. weight at the range a few years ago.  Shooting off-hand at 25 yds., we broke the rope.  It took 18 shots though (5 of which actually hit the rope), so apparently we weren't rolling our hit dice quite well enough...... ;) 

Thanks for that link.

You're welcome!

Thanks for the kind comments all.

That's one of the nice things about FFOL, and skirmish games in general.  It's a very low bar to build a new force.  Especially if you already have terrain you can use.  The biggest downside is I'm enjoying the games and forget to take photos.   lol

Hmmm... I might have to try this too.  Did you use wad cutters?

Nope.  Good old-fashioned round-nose.  Winchester '94 in .30-30.

Of course!  I was thinking pistol calibre.

Yeah.  Maybe .45 Colt wadcutters might take less shots.

Bullet type is probably a bit too much detail for FFOL but I did wonder about adding a +1 at short range and -1 at long range for pistols.  Theyíre just the poor relation of rifles currently, with no advantage.  For long rifles, especially with a scope, if could be the opposite.  Probably not needed but it might add a bit of tactical variety.

"Yep" to the first point.  and a hearty "Hmmm..." to the second!

Glad you discovered the Gang cards. I will say personally, differentiating between gun or bullet types is the antithesis of FfoL. You are better off bringing in traits and rules from the newer versions to add flavor. No bullet counting here.

Sorry - I was just discussing that for discussion's sake.  FFoL isn't meant to differentiate between ammo types.  One of the things I like about it...
