Yeehaw, pardner! Mount up, men! We’ll head ’em off at the pass! Come on out with your six-guns a-shootin’ and a-blazin’! Unhand that rancher’s daughter! Tear up that mortgage! Cattle… lariats? … Anyone for tennis? Anyway, Wild West cliche sayings aside, Knuckleduster Miniatures has launched their Kickstarter campaign for their new miniatures skirmish game, Gunfighter’s Ball.

From the campaign:

If you have ever held a Gunfighter’s Ball game miniature in your hands, you can attest to the stunning quality of these digitally-designed wild west miniatures. The Gunfighter’s Ball game system ties together these digitally-sculpted miniatures with extremely fun rules and matching terrain items worthy of the figures themselves.

Gunfighter’s Ball is a tabletop miniatures game that puts the focus squarely on combat. Each player controls one or two characters with a card-driven turn sequence, dice-rolling for hit results, and a very detailed wound chart which specifies where you are hit and how much damage you take (tracked by poker chips).

The campaign is already over its funding goal, so it’s on to stretch goals for the next 29 days.

    I’ve always thought Knuckleduster minis were really underrated in the Wild West gaming world, but this KS is unfortunately expensive for what you get. Still a fan of the minis though.

      Looking it over, and it is an odd one.

      The existing minis add on gives you 42 minis for $125- which is a good deal on the metal minis.

      For roughly the same price you could instead get seven minis, the rulebook and a saloon exterior and interior set (also tokens and dice).

      So the terrain is expensive, but it is all cast in either metal or resin, so I don’t see how they’d make it a whole lot cheaper.

      I’m always unsure about terrain prices- I just so rarely get excited about terrain pieces, so the prices usually look like a lot to me.
