I've been trying to look into this game.
Went to their site and tried to get info on gameplay and downloaded their pdf about it…

Is the rulebook for this as poor as the pdf? Absolutely horrid translation issues and left me more confused than i was.

Does anyone actually have the game and can tell me some about this?

I picked it up when it first came out as it looked to be full of promise. The production value is outstanding..even the box! I painted the four mini's as I struggled to get my head around 'that' rulebook. Each mini has their own set of card's for combat and special abilities. I even put a list together of figures to buy to make up two gang's, but after downloading the updated rules… I gave up. All I can say is that there is a 'game' in there if you have the time and the money to find it.

I have it and its more a boardgame than wargame.
I do have to say that I do like it.
It took LOTS of reading and trying things out to figure out the rules.
For all I know, we may have screwed us some of the rules, but they work for us.

I bought the box set via maelstrom (ahh back in the day)
It turned up with a tampered box and minus the inclusive figures. I tried to contact the Ron and Bones gents re the dilemma but I never got a reply (even on their Facebook)
The product quality is beautiful and I have since acquired individual figures but all in all I agree totally with all the previous comments good or bad.
