I know it's a little bloodthirsty, with innocent civilians in the line of fire, but I'd like to run a game based on the botched robbery of the railway office in the Texas border town from The Wild Bunch (WB). I will be using the Fistful of Lead rules. Has anyone else run this scenario? I am thinking that, once the shooting starts, the civilians will run in random directions and distances based on a D8. If one of the Wild Bunch is targeted within one inch of a civilian, then there's a 50% chance of hitting the civilian. The WB need to get to their horses and make their getaway to win. I'll give each of the WB one to three "Luck" tokens that will force a re-roll on a hit, but they have to accept the result of the re-roll. Has anyone, by chance, got a diagram of the location of the shoot out? I just re-watched the movie last night and it looks like the railway office is located on a street facing a park or town square. I'll be playing the game in 54mm, using Armies in Plastic US Boxer Rebellion Marines for the WB.

It ain't like it used to be … but it'll do.
