Fistful of Lead: Galactic Heroes
by Michael S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/08/2019 05:43:53

GREAT Addition to the Fistful of Lead system!! As always, clearly wrotten rules with just the right amount of new rules to fully immerse the players in the pulpy retro-Scifi genre. The "Crew Traits" are are very nice addition and "Powers" make it very easy to give your scenaios the Star Wars feel. The Codex Glactica and Vehicle Instruction Manual are the icing on the cake, giving players all the options they need to generate exciting campaigns in a univere of their choosing. Keep up the great work.

BTW: When will we see a Post-apocalyptic setting complete with mutations and creatures in the vein of Gamma World?

Finishing touches on Fistful of Lead Core rulebook (stripped down GH) then Tales of Horror. Final edits of both in progress along with ToH cards. Then Wastelands Warriors should be around the corner. -J

This supplement is very good if you search ideas for scenarios skirmish. You can adapt these scenarios for maximilian war easily.

Very good rules. Fun, fast and furious. We played these rules for FIW period but also ACW.

Fistful of Lead: Horse& Musket
by Jamie B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/11/2017 22:41:14

Nice, simple rules for pre- repeating firearms-era skirmish battles of around a half dozen models on a side. Nicely adapts and expands the Fistful of Lead Old West era with more detailed rules for hand-to-hand combat and muzzle-loaders, among other things.

it's an exciting and fun way to use a few models to create battles ranging from the 1700s to the early Victorian era.

However, the editing is terrible, with multiple obvious typos. It's embarrassing, especially given that this is also a print product, and, one assumes, the print edition went out this way. A single pass by a copyeditor could have fixed this. Why one wasn't used I don't know, but it doesn't give me a lot of confidence when the publisher lacks the respect for his customers to put out a finished product. If it were a freebie product this would be more understandable, but I have numerous free or very inexpensive rulesets with less errors. That the errors still aren't fixed even though the prduct has been out for months suggests that the author and publisher are content for it to remain this way.

It's a decent, fun product marred by a lack of editorial oversight. HOPEFULLY THE PUBLISHER WILL NOTICE AND EDIT IT.

Clear, concise rules with hardly any complexity that leaves you wondering - what's that mean? The one page heads-up sheet is all new players need to jump straight in to the game. Ideal beginner for my school games groups.
