Finally we had a trial game with my little side project for the year, The Wild West using Dead mans Hand rules. We simply used 5 men aside with one gang of outlaws and the other Law men and played a shoot out down town scenario with a very simple objective of killing the other gang!
The outlaws approach the town with caution
The Marshall had shot down a outlaw but is shot dead out right by the outlaw gunslinger
In the end my sole surving gunslinger held is nerve long enough to see the last two lawmen jump on their horses and get out of town, so victory for the bad guys this time round. Next time we will both pick our own gangs and have a go at the campaign series which was supplied in the Rulebook. Overall view was a positive one and a think it will be a welcome break from wargaming large battles most weeks..until next time partner 😄
A barroom brawl saw a outlaw dude kill the deputy before he himself was shot dead from a near by building window
