Blackwater Gulch: Rebels & Reinforcements

We just launched a new Kickstarter campaign for Blackwater Gulch! Check it out!

Blackwater Gulch is a tabletop skirmish game based on the Wild West. We launched our first successful Kickstarter campaign for the game back in March. Now that the models we produced are about to be shipped to previous backers, we are launching this new campaign, Rebels & Reinforcements, to fund even more miniatures! We have several all new gangs planned, along with new 3-man "Support Packs" that will expand upon our existing gangs. We're also offering lots of new bonus figures, custom dice, laser cut building kits and more!

For more information on all of the new models and other goodies we have planned, please visit the Kickstarter campaign page.

And lastly but not least, for those of you who might be interested in the status of the previous campaign, you can find all the info there too, in Update #1.

The miniatures are good, but allow me to mention a printing mistake.


That world didn't exist in spanish (or mexican).

I would be more excited about this if I had actually received anything from the first one…

Best of luck, guys! This looks like another set of great minis!

Actually both are correct. Banditos is certainly be the common usage in the US. I don't think it is Spanish though, it might be Italian.

Necros Sponsoring Member of TMP15 Nov 2012 8:54 a.m. PST

Thanks folks :)

And I had them fix the spelling, I didn't notice that before. We also adjusted some of the unlock levels because so many people were begging for the Tranquility Crew for some reason :)

Doing pretty well, over half way funded now :) it's trending toward around $50,000. USD Hoping that once we get more bonus items unlocked the higher pledge levels will be a much better value and bring in even more folks looking for free minis :)

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP15 Nov 2012 12:22 p.m. PST

My friend Heisler, in italian it's banditi (plural) or bandito (singular).
I never hear that in USA people called in the Old West thieves in Italian as a common word.
Also, the box showed Mexican thieves.
And, for any doubt, they had just change the name in the link for "Bandidos".

Yep I had him change the image real quick, didn't notice the error at first. Luckily we have it spelled right on the boxes :)

We just did an update to the campaign page and changed around our stretch goals in light of what a lot of backers were requesting and to make the bonus items unlock sooner to give the higher level backers a much better value, and the lower level backers a lot more options to choose from :)

$5 USDk – Kurt Wyatt Bonus Figure (unlocked now)
$10 USDk – Widowmakers Gang Starter Set
$15 USDk – Dr Kilmer Bonus Figure
$20 USDk – Tranquility Crew Gang Starter Set
$25 USDk – Wayne Duke Bonus Figure
$30 USDk – Flying Zarconis Gang Starter Set
$35 USDk – Nevada Dave Bonus Figure
$40 USDk – Secret Fist Gang Starter Set
$45 USDk – Father Al Bonus Figure
$50 USDk – Dockside Drifters Gang Starter Set
$55 USDk – Marshall Stewart Bonus Figure
$60 USDk – Wilde's Rangers Gang Starter Set

So we just alternate every $5,000 USD 1 bonus figure then 1 gang. We also moved the Tranquility Crew up to $20,000 USD just because so many people have been asking for it. I didn't expect that, I kind of tacked that one on at the end at first just for fun, turns out it's the one everyone wants most :)

Just got the sculpt for Kurt Wyatt today :) He was done by Brother Vinni. Vinni will also be doing Dr. Kilmer and Wayne Duke since they will eventually be sold in 1 set together as the "Hired Guns: Lawmen Support Pack" :)

Here's some pics, 1 with some other minis for comparison and one extreme closeup.

Wayne Duke is now unlocked!

Next up, Tranquility Crew!

New concept art for some more of the bonus figures :)

Here we have The Outlaw Clinton Wales (may change his pose to "Do ya feel lucky, varmint?" or "Get off my tumbleweeds"), Doc Emmitt, Father Al and Nevada Dave :)

Necros Sponsoring Member of TMP28 Nov 2012 8:31 p.m. PST

Got the last of the new concept art .. here's an updated Clinton Wales along with Marshall Stewart and Fox McFly :)

New updates today. We decided to swap the positions of Wilde's Rangers and the Flying Zarconis, so the rangers are now a $30,000 USD unlock. Did that mostly because we already started on the gang and I want to make sure they're unlocked :) A lot of folks were asking about them too so it seemed like a good idea.

We also have a new General Store Add-on – the Blackwater Gulch Army Painter Paint set. Similar to their standard starter set, this is 10 different colors that will work good for the western theme (lots of brown!) and a different brush.

3 more days to go! :)

Necros Sponsoring Member of TMP03 Dec 2012 12:08 p.m. PST

We just passed the $25,000 USD mark and the outlaw Clinton Wales has been unlocked! He's another bonus figure to add to the pile. Now pledges at the Gunslinger level ($100) or higher will get 10 free miniatures plus 6 Colt 45 dice.

Next on the list will be Wilde's Rangers, they'll be unlocked at $30,000. USD Only 2 days left!

Necros Sponsoring Member of TMP04 Dec 2012 9:01 a.m. PST

less than 2 days left :) Wilde's Rangers are about to be unlocked, followed by Doc Emmitt soon after :)

Necros Sponsoring Member of TMP04 Dec 2012 6:53 p.m. PST

The new campaign has gone extremely well! As of this moment we have 24 hours left and funding is over $31,000. USD At the rate it's been going lately, I'm pretty confident we'll get up to $40,000 USD to unlock the Secret Fist!. We're also really close to unlocking the next bonus figure, Doc Emmitt at $35,000. USD Once he's unlocked, everyone who pledges at the Gunslinger level ($100) or higher will be getting ELEVEN free miniatures and 6 colt 45 dice!

We've also added some new add-on items like paints and extra gatling gun models, in case you want the gun but not the gang, or you want the gang but want more guns!

So if you haven't jumped in yet, now is the time
