From the announcement:

"Blood will be spilled. Lives will be lost. Fortunes will be made. Men will be ruined."

Releasing April 12th, The Legend of Dead Man's Hand is available now for pre-order priced £15

The Legend of Dead Man's Hand is the campaign sourcebook for Dead Man's Hand, in which players take a gang of no-good crooks or a posse of untried, but honest, good men, and endeavor to make their mark on the Old West. Rivals develop business schemes or criminal enterprises, gain skills and experience, expand the size of their respective bands, and engage in plenty of Wild West gunplay in their rise to glory or descent into an early grave (or the bottom of a bottle).

The Legend of Dead Man's Hand contains rules for running multi-player campaigns, eleven new scenes (including multi-gang shootouts), and four new gang types: Banditos, Renegade Indians, 7th Cavalry, and Pinkertons.

In the coming weeks we'll give you the lowdown on different aspects of The Legend of Dead Man's Hand, and give you details on a host of new 28mm miniatures, buildings and accessories and more.

Dead Man's Hand feature and exclusive cards in Wargames Illustrated 315

Great Escape Games will have a new gang and scenes in the upcoming issue of Wargames Illustrated.



Source

From the post:

The upcoming issue 315 of Wargames Illustrated features a brand new gang, three new scenes and a new set of gang specific cards which are exclusive to Wargames Illustrated and come free with the magazine.

The new gang sees a Stranger coming to town and gathering up the local citizens, arming them and getting them ready to fight. Once in a while things’ll get so bad around town that the folks have just had enough. Sometimes the law helps, other times the folks in town are brought together by something else entirely. The Stranger came into town and shook everything up. Short on words, he let his pistols do the talking, and when they spoke they sang a song of death. Nobody knew his name, when he came or when he left; they just knew that the streets were safer and the cemetery held a few more corpses.

Great Escape Games will be stocking this issue of WI and have a couple of bundle deals in the webstore.

And if you haven't played Dead Man's Hand yet, then it's time to quit talkin' and get shootin'!

This item will be shipped upon release in the third week of December and will be due in time for Christmas in the UK. Pre-order now in the webstore.

New Dead Man's Hand Undertaker's Shop and 4Ground Furniture sets from Great Escape Games

Great Escape Games has a new Undertaker's Shop as well as some new furniture sets available over in their shop.
I'd have to put a sign on mine that says "Rigor O'Mortis, the Smiling Undertaker."
Name that cartoon.



Source

From the announcement:

Brand new for the Dead Man's Hand range of pre-painted buildings is the Undertaker's.

This is the most extravagant DMH building to date. The building pictured has had nothing added except for the PVA/wood glue used during construction of the kit. This corner building comes with sub base C and its boardwalk decking enabling it to fit seamlessly along the boardwalk on ‘the corner of main street. These bases may be modelled into a gaming board permanently, allowing you to create a realistically modelled gaming area but still allowing flexibility with the placement of buildings.
As a feature building with large shop windows it also has glass (acetate) shop windows with painted advertising of his trade. All doors (exterior and internal) are pin hinged and this building has an internal staircase.

Also released is the range of pre-painted furniture sets for various wargaming periods. 4Ground's pre-painted "Furniture and Belongings" are particularly useful when giving your buildings that lived in (or once lived in) look. These items may be used as furnishings or improvised barricades; streets and Western buildings look so much more appealing with furniture and belongings strategically placed! This range will grow and they are usable for many different periods.

It's not "dolls' house" stuff as long as you have armed men in close proximity...
