Hello. My name is Joaquim and this is my first post in this forum, althought I've been lurking here for quite a while. I'm from Portugal and I've been playing Warlord for some time now.

 

I love wild west games and I've played a few but I always flet that they lacked something. I read Cowboys & Gunslingers and I was drawn to it instantly.

But I had to add some details that I think that belong to this particular system. Some s abilities and the Leader and Troops rules. I've played twice since and it worked pretty well. Please let me know your oppinion about it.

 

Abilities

 

Leader

A leader can lead troops (0-3) (0-5) (0-8) and add +1 to their DIS.

 

Horse Ride

A model can ride a Horse. The stats are the same. MOVE becomes always 9. It adds 1 to his DV and substracts 1 to his RAV while in the back of a Horse. It takes one action to mount and dismount.

 

Born in a Saddle

The figure is complete at ease when mounted in a Horse. It doesn't subtract to his RAV and mounts and dismounts as a free action.

 

Fast Draw

When firing or making a Defensive Shot, this model strikes first. The damage it makes will be done before the adversary fires.

And that's it for the Cowboys and Gunslingers for now.

 

As for Galactic Warlord ;) I've been struggling with scifi weapons and abilities. I'd like to have your ideas on this. Not weapon ranges, or special abilities, but modifiers to RAV. Should RAV be only accounted on the figures capacity or weapons should modify this?

 

Thanks in advance and a Happy New Year for you all.

Well Jeff you know I am always up for something new and I am sure I could get travis to join in as well.

 

As for the abilities I have to say I like them although the horse sounds like a piece of gear that you could shift from one figure to another which I can see being useful.

After playing a game last night, with Leaders, Solitaires and troops, I found the need for more special abilities and some more "characters".

 

Abilities

 

Sharpshooter

A model with this SA ignores its opponent’s Deflect and Stealth SAs when making ranged attacks.

 

Stealth

Models with this SA cannot be targeted by ranged attacks from farther than 12” away. If a Stealth model provokes Defensive Shots, those shots can be taken using the defending model’s normal range. Models with Stealth do not block LOS for any models more than 12” away from them.

 

Tactician

A model with this SA grants you a bonus card for your Draw Deck. A player may choose whether or not to include any bonus cards at the start of each Initiative Phase. When the model with this SA is destroyed, remove the bonus card during the End Phase.

 

Unhindered

A model with this SA can make ranged attacks while in B2B with enemy models. It cannot shoot any of the models it is in B2B with. Using this ability does not provoke Defensive Strikes from any models it is in B2B with.

 

Troops

 

We also came with a new troop type:

 

Mountainman

Rank: Troop

DT: 0/1

Move: 6/5

DIS: 7/6

DV: 9/8

EXP: 3/2

SA: Tough/2, Ranger/4, Stealth

MAV: 3/2

#MA: 2

RAV: 3/2

#RA: 2

SA: Rng(4), Ammo/12, Reload/2,

RAV: 4/3

#RA: 1

Rng(18), Ammo/1, Reload/1, Pierce

 

Finally one question:

 

What should be the range of the saw-off shotguns?

Hi Bayushiseni,

 

You have some interesting ideas. I designed Cowboys & Gunslingers as just a quick play game, but you aren't the first to want to expand it. Probably the biggest reason I've never tried to expand it to include troops like in Warlord is that I don't have access to the Warlord points generator. I just had players pick their cowboy/cowboy based on looks, not any specific point values.

 

In the shootout games I ran I used stats for the horses pretty close to what you came up with. The same went for when the players tried to handle a wagon. I would treat horses as equipment.

 

Born in the Saddle looks like a neat S.A. I don't dislike Fast Draw, but it would be a huge bonus for the model that had it. I'd be willing to playtest it though.

 

Sawed off Shotguns use a spray template for their range.

 

I have data cards for just about every cowboy model and lots of conversions I did. Drop me a PM with your e-mail address and I will send you a pdf of them.

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      My waste paint receptacle for my ogre squad. Nothing special or exciting but he's done too.
      probably his best side here.

      This side no so much. I don't know think he translated into bones as well as some of the others like the ogres. But then, he's just a mook so who cares. 

       
      Oops! Looks like I hurt his feelings. He'll feel better when he's amongst his metal brethren. He has a much better base than they do.

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
       
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.
