Henry and I did our first 28mm playtest of a new skirmish game called Blackwater Gulch- similar to LOTHS in "structure" BWG is a rather simple game for Old West Skirmish. Without using the extra skills Henry and I ran a simple game to test movement, shooting and melee. Henry had a "Bordello Gang" While My gang consisted of Union dismounted Cavalry with a couple of hired Mercenaries,
the mission was simple capture this western town from Southern Sympathizers and establish the rule of law. the Bordello Gang were affiliated with a loosely run band of Confederate Marauders displaced by the events of the recent Civil War. Ongoing conflict will include raiding Idian parties
as Union interests spread out of Texas into Arizona - New Mexico Territories.
Pics of the simple battle follow -
One rule - in order to have special skills a figure must be fully painted and shaded.
