Fistful of Lead - Old West Gun Fight

Due to an electrical in my new (used) RV I had to cut my trip short this week. Having Friday off I decided to attempt to salvage the end of the week by stopping by Adler Hobby for a game. Since there were four of us we decided to play a game of Fistful of Lead which is a quick-play Old West Gunfight game.

Gordon is planning a big game of this at the end of the month so this was a learning game for Adam and I. Gordon and Chris already knew the game very well. Each side took half a squad of six. I used some ACW skirmish figures I had for Brother against Brother and Gordon used three of his his Buffalo soldiers. Facing us were Adam's gunfighters and Chris used three Confederate Zouaves that I lent him. Chris and Adam's job was to get away with the gold from the bank (represented by white glass beads). As you can see from the photos below they did very well. Chris placed a Zouave on the top of the bank who commanded the entire area and shot Gordon and I dead almost to a man single handedly. Give that 'reb a double share of the loot!

If you have the chance, our local con, RECRUITS will celebrating its 20th show in the Fall. They've asked all the original GMs to come and put the game on they ran back then. I will be running the big scenario from the rules. If you can make it to Kansas City, it'll be worth the trip.
