Flashback: Gunslinger

We had nine guys out at the club last night. Dave hauled out his 10mm WW2 troops and put on a Russian front game using Blitzkrieg Commander.

Bruce took us back to 1982 (or 1882?) with a game of Avalon Hill's Gunslinger, including Gamescience miniatures he won in an auction around about that time. 

The marshall and Miss Kitty were left to defend the town against two desperadoes. The bad guys split up, with Terry's fellow exchanging wild shots with the marshall, while I snuck around the buildings to get the drop on him. Miss Kitty moved into the saloon and pulled her derringer out of her bodice.

Alas, the marshall pulled a whole lot of bad, bad cards (too much coffee?) and was unable to hit me. Eventually, we dispatched the marshall and made a terrible mess of the saloon with gunfire.

Up next: I have some Dropship Commander minis underway. The human faction is based coated and I'm working on the details. These are nice models!

The game certainly had a lot of interesting ideas, but it definately showed its age, but is that a bad thing?

Hey, we're all old. I think a second playing would see a bit more strategy now that we get the ranges and whatnot.
