I couldn't find anything on this site or at Fanaticus, but I swear I've seen somnething before. You can game outlaws vs. the good guys, which would include a combination of lawmen, cowboys, citizen hordes, stagecoaches or wagons, a herd of cattle, etc. Curious if anyone has any lists. Thanks.

The Wayback Machine is a helpful tool.

Here is Alan's old list of HOTT armies:


Check under Indians (Deadland) and you will find some useful lists.

79th PA, Here is a link to the North Yorkshire Leg of the 2014 GBnU Tournament and one of the armies used there was an old west army (scroll down a bit). I liked it so much I am slowly gathering figures to do one similar using a slightly different list.


And here's my Ghost Riders in he Sky army. I have not had much luck with it as originally designed so want to try it using a couple of the "red eyed cows" as Behemoths and see how it does.


Hope this helps,

I am looking at now doing a cowboy army based on characters from the various western movies primarily the better ones rather than what in SASS are termed B-Western, so no Roy Rogers or Gene Autry.

Just to give an idea Quigley will be artillery with his long rifle, Charlie Wade or John Wayne and the "Cowboys" will be herding steers as a Behemoth, definitely Sharon Stone from Quick and the Dead as probably a Hero or Paladin, and maybe the Earps and some of the "Cow Boys" from Tombstone. There will be more but this gives an idea of how it will be set up.
