Howdy folks!

I’m happy to officially announce our upcoming Kickstarter campaign for our new expansion, Blackwater Gulch: Savage Beasts.

These beasts make up an all new faction ruled by the Skinwalkers, a race of vicious were-beasts, along with their minion creatures like the Chupacabras (pictured above), Jackalopes and more.

We’re expecting to launch the campaign in about 2 weeks, right now we are still working out pricing and also have to put together the intro video and other graphical elements. Our initial funding goal will be to cover the costs to produce models pictured above along with an updated rulebook. We also have many new models planned for stretch goals, including plenty of new human gang members. Our first stretch goal will be for the sculpts below, the werewolf Scout and Warden, along with the Werecatcher artillery piece.



We’ll let you know when the new campaign is ready to go. In the meantime you can visit our website at http://www.blackwatergulch.com for more info or to download the rules and character cards for free!

Just finished the Kickstarter intro video last night. Here is is!



I may change it slightly for the final version on the campaign page, since I have some new beast art that I should be getting next week, but it will be mostly the same though

Toward the end you can see the picture of the 2 Alpha Werewolves together. Croatoan is the leader of the Beast faction, he's the one with the totem staff. He'll also come with an alternate right arm with just a fist, so you could build him as a generic Alpha Werewolf if you wanted to create your own characters. I'm planning to have all Alpha beasts the same way, so you can build the character or change it up and make your own.

If all goes well, we expect to launch on Sunday, August 23

Just to make it clear, is this an expansion for shadows of brimstone?
There is no info on that petty thing anywhere, so I had to make an educated guess made by the font style and theme

No, this is not related to Shadows & Brimstone at all .. well, maybe in theme a little I guess

This is an expansion for my game, Blackwater Gulch http://www.blackwatergulch.com

The components could easily enough be used in Shadows, but this looks like a Miniature game (a la Warhammer, but in the Old West). Plus, there's no Cthulu element, well, I guess, since we're looking at some kind of wolfmen here

Yes, no Cthulu here. It's a skirmish game though, more along the lines of Infiniti or Malifaux, so it's a low model count kind of game. Rules are real easy and the game is laid back and fun

I also wanted to keep it different than Malifaux which has a similar time period. The setting began as a generic western, and this is the first "weird west" expansion. We are focusing more on US and Native American folklore and urban legends for our monsters. These were-things are based on the Skinwalker myth. Later on we plan to have some voodoo zombies, plus vampires based on the Wendigo legends.

These Skinwalkers also have minions who are other folklore creatures like the Chupacabra, Jackalope, Cactus Cat or Montauk Monster.

Oops, no, I'll have to fix that. We started out with Game Salute, but now we're self published. We're still working together sort-of, we'll be using their ShipNaked service to fulfill pledges and for our online store orders, but the game is "self published" now

With the amount of blow back Game Salute has had around BBG you may want to be clear in your kickstarter that they are not involved other then as shipping support ie "ShipNaked".

I never had any problems with them, in fact I think it was great working with them, but I've heard there have been some issues for other folks. Either way though, they won't be mentioned at all, no reason to

Nowadays, I have the production part all nailed down and simplified now. All minis get produced and packaged by Iron Wind Metals, then they send the final products to the ShipNaked warehouse, then they ship it out to the customers Everything runs pretty smoothly now.

We’re almost there! Here is a preview of the Kickstarter page:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gangfightgames/14194970...

We just have a few tweaks to make, and I need to post the updated rulebook and character card PDFs for the beasts, should have that finished tonight or tomorrow.

If all goes well I'm hoping to hit the launch button on Wednesday at 7 PM EST

We have a new update to our rulebook now, plus updated the final Beast cards now featuring just the minis we have made for the new campaign. As new minis get unlocked we’ll add to them PDF You can get everything on our downloads page:

http://www.gangfightgames.com/blackwater-gulch/rules/

The rulebook is still not finished, but this is the final text update before we finish it up and get it ready for printing. So the content is all there, all of the new Beast Callings, abilities and skills. It’s still lacking photos, plus a lot of art and diagrams. That will all get added in before we go to print, I want to wait and see what we can unlock in the campaign and get photos of for the book.

Also, we finished updating the Savage Beasts page on our site and it now lists all of the different characters we hope to unlock for the new campaign, if you want to get an idea of where the faction is headed

http://www.gangfightgames.com/blackwater-gulch/savage-beasts...

There will be 4 different Alphas (leaders), each getting their own starter set with other Skinwalkers of similar animal affinities. So after the wolves are done we’ll have Werebears + jackalopes, followed by Werecats + cactus cats, followed by Werebirds & bats + Montocks.

We just have some finishing touches to do on the campaign page, and then we should be ready to launch it as planned tomorrow night

Your preview link doesn't work. I believe you need to use a link shorter or tell people to add "/?token=8d438848" to the end of the link manually

Hmm I didn't see that, I guess BGG cut it off somehow?

Howdy pardners!

In today's update we would like to tell you a little bit more about Croatoan, the leader of the Savage Beasts, and other Alpha Beasts.

Croatoan is a terrible Maneater and leader of the Savage Beasts of the Worm Woods, he has been credited with the destruction of colonies as far back as the Roanoke disaster. Now, his sites are set on Blackwater Gulch.



He carries a heavy Totem Staff into battle, and if he's not smashing skulls with it, he'll a make a Ferocious Swipe with his sharp claws, or perform a Lunging Strike that can reach enemies that might be out of his normal melee range.

As a Maneater, he always receives +1D6 to hit when attacking men in Infamous Gangs, and being an Alpha means any other Savage Beast in his Pack within 6" of him also receive this bonus. He is truly a force to be reckoned with!

Alpha Beasts

Maybe you want to create your own Beast Pack from scratch? Croatoan also comes with an extra right arm piece, so you can have the character model, or make your own. This is something we hope to do with all of our Alpha Beasts, we'd like to include optional arms or other optional bits so you have a couple of options for making your pack more unique.



We just launched our Kickstarter campaign and are over half-way funded! Please stop by for a visit and help us get our new faction up and running! You can visit our campaign here:

Time is running out! Our campaign has less than 48 hours left! Won't you help us out? While we do expect to be able to finish the production on our first few beasts, a successful campaign will ensure that we can keep the new stuff coming, along with adding a lot of great new art to our updated rulebook and a lot more! We also expect to be able to fulfill everything by the end of December, rather than April which was a longer date that we set in case we unlocked a lot of stretch goals.

You may pledge to receive any of our new miniatures, or our original gangs, and we are offering free bonus miniatures to any pledge $50 or higher!

Check out our campaign now and join in before it's too late! The campaign ends on Sunday, September 6 at 10 PM EST!
