Almost two dozen desperate gunslingers were arrayed on the outskirts of town, armed with sixguns, rifles, scatterguns and a bloodthirsty desire to kill!

Hi All:

the title pretty much says it all.

Are these for sale any more? Jeff Valiant used to sell these but I cannot find them on his website now.

i did find some figures with Reaper and Pinnacle, but these are new sculpts and for the most part i am unsure of the compatibility with with my old miniatures.

i have hit ebay and noble knight games, availability and pricing can be interesting

any advice or information would be greatly appreciated.

thank you in advance,

I may have a box of those hanging around. If I do you are welcome to them.

A fun game

I do not have any of the box sets but I do have some of the original blister packs. If you let me know which ones you are looking for I can check if I have them and would be willing to part with them at a very reasonable price.

Those old Naismith sculpts have lots of character. It'a a shame a lot the (five-)packs had only thee variants. They're also huge and hard to compliment with other lines!

Yes, a great game, lots of fun back then.

I hope these fellows can help you out, Clark.

thank you for the information and offers.

At this time i would be interested in almost anything and i have just the box set and a few odds and ends. so what have you got and what do you want for them?

I also am looking for any recommendations for ACW figures that would fit with these figures. I have done some surfing and found many lines but most are in the 28mm range or smaller. Deadlands figures are about 30mm foot to eye and has been remarked, quite stout :).

thank you for your time and offers,

I will dig out my box of figures and see what I have.
You are right about the Great Rail War figures being stout. They do not mix well with anything. The new sculpts will mix in with some lines.
