Legends of the Old West rulebooks?

Postby Krak_kirby » Sat Dec 04, 2010 12:34 am

I just signed up for the Legends of the Old West event. I don't have the game books, and I'm having trouble running them down. Is there a source outside of the U.K. for the main book and the supplements?

I'm planning on buying a selection of Foundry Miniatures for my cowboys and such, as I don't believe GW makes a western model range. Is there another option better or more fitting for the game?

There were some cowboy miniatures for the deadlands and rail wars games, you might be able to find some on ebay.

I think perry miniatures might make some & I also found these by valent studios: http://www.jeffvalentstudios.com/store/ ... 09240cdde7

Legends in Time carry a variety of old west figures. Foundry & Artizan are well sculpted & similar in scale. I have some of the Black Scorpion pirate figures - well done, but more 32mm than 28mm.

The Old West books used to be distributed in the US - you may be able to find old stock in a few places. If not, you'll need to order from the US.

Legends as the Old West book listed also.

Kevin,

Mike Owen was I think the primary sculptor for the Foundry Old West range and is also the owner of Artizan so those ranges match up well.

Mark Sims another ex-foundry sculptor .. and owner of Crusader has a few olds and ends for Old West models.

Black Scorpion makes some nice stufF and there is always Dixon and Knuckleduster.

You can also take a look at some of the models for Wyrd games Malifaux line

They are heroic 32 mm scale and a lot of them also have a bit of a fantasy influence so most wont work. But there are at least a few straight up cowboys in there as well(Mostly Guild models)

The first thing I need to do is get a copy of the rulebook so I can lay my nefarious plans for an outlaw gang.

Can someone with the game and supplements let me know if the supplements are necessary to make informed decisions? I am a pretty competitive gamer, so if there are additional rules or new factions in the supplements I'll probably pony up the dough. If they are mostly new scenarios or optional rules I can limp along with the main book.

Is there a forum for this game anyplace?

You'll definitely need the main rulebook (which really is worth the money BTW). That has outlaws in it (as well as 2 other gangs). The supplements are unnecessary, unless you plan on running US Cav/Infantry/Indians/TX Rangers (Frontier), Mexican army/peasants/TX volunteers (Alamo), or one of the gangs in Showdown.

A good forum to try is Lead Adventure's Old West forum, that's where I got all my info.

I've got the main book on the way, and a friend is rounding up a couple of the others! I'm going to enjoy painting up some cowboys, indians, mountain men and townsfolk. It'll be a nice break from guardsmen, marines and xenos!

Yee Hawww!
