In my mind are Machette (I just need to find miniature of Denny Trejo) and a band of mexicans...

Danny Trejo, you say?

How about:

East Riding Miniatures


or

Zombicide


or

Elgen Miniatures


and, if you're looking for a friend for Danny, there's this Mariachi chap from Brigade Games:

The rules say you can play with multiple protagonists. Just use more points. The problem is that you will then end up needing more protagonists and/or bruisers for the foot, or a lot of foot figures!

Oh cool, I like that mariachi figure a lot. Looks a little small in stature though. 25mm?

Great! I have decided about my gang. It was all the time in front of my eyes. I have only kept skaven gutter runners when I stopped playing WHFB so I am going to make a gang of Rat Ninjas!

My rules are ordered but still on their way. Could you advice on what bases the game is played? Square? Round? Doesn't care?

I don't think the game cares, but I've only seen and (myself) done round bases, though it's a sorta play how you feel sorta game anyway.
For shoddy photos and grandiloquent commentary on miniatures and toy soldiers, waste some time on:

Generally speaking the game doesn't care (as is the case with most of the games using the Song of Blades and Heroes engine). I think most or possibly all of the photos in the book show figures mounted on 30mm round bases. I prefer round bases for skirmish-level games myself, but use what you have / what you like.

It's a golden age for Danny Trejo miniatures!

The Mariachi figure isn't huge (I don't have it to hand to measure, I'm afraid), but it's a Paul Hicks sculpt, I believe, so I would assume it's generally in line with the rest of his work.

My ruleset in my hand and read carefully. I just have one question. How is the Bruiser considered regarding effects? Does he work like an extra or is he to be knocked out the way the protagonists are? Thanks

Hi Jiron,

A Bruiser counts as an Extra - (s)he is built to a higher points total and has access to a select few of the Protagonist Traits (see p.60). This makes Bruisers tougher than Extras, but still weaker than the Protagonist.
