Blackwater Gulch Price Reduction

Gangfight Games is doing something you don’t see too often from a gaming company: reducing prices across the board for their miniatures. The reduction is part of the reason they cancelled their recent Kickstarter, as they didn’t want people pledging for the higher prices when that wasn’t really necessary.
They’ve also got the first 3D renders up for Vicious Beasts, a new expansion for Blackwater Gulch.
You can check out the new prices in the company’s webshop.

Outlaw Miniatures launches Wild West Exodus: Unfinished Business Kickstarter

Outlaw Miniatures saddled up and set out to cut ’em off at the pass with the launch of their Wild West Exodus: Unfinished Business Kickstarter campaign.

And seeing as they’re ~150% funded, and rising, with 26 days still to go, I’d say that’ll happen.

From them to you:

This is the Alpha set of the Broken Contract rules. As an Alpha rule set it is expected that there will be inconsistencies, typos, mistakes, and the like. I’m releasing it to the world so you can find all of those so they can be fixed. I think I’ve raised enough awareness about the game that I should be able to get some solid feedback. With the Kickstarter looming in 5 days it seemed the perfect time to capitalize on the excitement and urgency so here it is. I strongly encourage everyone to use the comments section or to join the conversation on boardgamegeek. Thanks and enjoy!
