Admittedly after a long time !
Michelle fancied being the Outlaws so I had the Marshal and his Deputies.
A church has been built since our last visit
and Honest Al now runs the Saloon & Hotel
Where the bar is as popular as ever
The lawmen regularly patrol Main Street
but they were caught on the hop when this band of baddies arrived
They ignored the entreaties of the Reverend
They split into two forces - half heading straight down the street towards the bank the others with their leader skirting around the back of the church
The Lawmen were scattered around town but the sound of hooves sets them in motion
The Marshal and a Deputy emerge from his office and two other Deputies have come out of the Saloon
Another seems to have been hovering near the dress shop !
A train came in earlier with banknotes for First National Bank so the Baddies must have been tipped off
(The mounted Baddies have dismounted counterparts here to replace them when they dismount)
They have moved so swiftly that the first three are near the bank already
A Deputy who had been on guard outside the bank takes cover after some shots from the Baddies
The townsfolk would do well to go indoors !
The leader has moved his gang around the back of the Undertakers and now turn to go down the alley beside this and the new building under construction
First blood ! The Deputy nearest the bank has "dropped" a Baddie
But two others have dismounted and head for him
and the second group gallops into Main Street, leader at the fore
They gun down a second Deputy by the carts
But they haven't spotted the Marshal and a shotgun armed Deputy on this side of town. The Baddie Leader is hit but he survives - the Marshal has managed to miss the other Baddie beside the construction site.
The Baddies dismount, bash in the bank door and grab the cash.
They have charged into the bank, got the Loot, reloaded and emerge onto the Street again
A Deputy shoots and misses. The return fire takes him out of the game. The Baddie Leader has remounted as the rest of the gang head for their horses too
They exchange fire with the Marshal who has now taken cover near the Undertakers
They have all managed to mount up now whilst the Lawmen are reloading
They whip up the horses and flee
Two are away
but the Marshal has managed to kill the Baddie Leader as the rest of the Lawmen catch up
So two thirds of the cash has gone - who is going to tell the train driver to go back and bring some more !!!
Thrilling game of Legends of the Old West.
Michelle really enjoyed this game.
