This is the first gang I created for BWG. It is partly dictated by the figures I have on hand, and partly because I like gangs that are not your run of the mill lawmen or outlaws (though we need those too!). The figures are a mix of Reaper, Foundry and I don't know what else... They still need a lick of paint, which is my project for this weekend.
After reading the campaign rules, I see that campaign gangs are generated differently, so I may go back and re-work their values to reflect that. I am not sure yet how I'll handle campaigns in our group. Lots to think about...
Anyway, here you go:
Miss Maddie (Gang leader - Gambler)
Miss Maddie (no one knows if that’s short for Madeline or Madame, and no one dares ask), came to Trinidad about eight years ago, at the start of the town’s rise to prominence. She opened a “social club” where lonely prospectors, ranch hands and travellers could get a decent meal, cheap drink, and find some company and a place to spend the night. It has become one of the premiere establishments of its type in the region, and with that notoriety and attention have come difficulties. Miss Maddie has to deal with many threats to herself, her girls and her profits, ranging from unhappy clients, to overzealous law enforcement, to outlaws looking for a quick score and thinking a building full of women is an easy target. She is a very capable woman, and as gentle and tender as she is with “her” girls, she is equally tough and determined when facing off against her enemies. Whether it’s bribing Sheriff McCabe’s deputies to turn a blind eye to the gambling going on the back room, tossing rowdy drunks out of her place, or using her 12 gauge to dissuade would-be bandits, Miss Maddie knows how to take care of business.

“Kat” WInslow (Bounty Hunter)
Katherine “Kat” Winslow was one of Miss Maddie’s girls, until a cowboy with a mean streak got a little rough with her. When she recovered, she cashed out her wages from Miss Maddie’s, went to Smith’s Pawn, strapped on a Peacemaker and went in search of justice. No one has seen the offending cowboy since. Now Kat works for herself as a bounty hunter, tracking down those with a price on their head. When not “freelancing,” she can be found working for Miss Maddie, either busting some disorderly heads or collecting past due balances.

Mysterious Stranger (Gunslinger)
No one in town knows where the tall stranger came from, but since he arrived six months ago, he has been a fixture at the club. Rumors say he and Miss Maddie have more than a business relationship, but in public the pair are always very proper and respectful. He is fast with a joke, and faster with a gun, and does not let any insult to Miss Maddie go by without a challenge.

2 Smith & Wesson Frontier Revolvers
Sally came west to Trinidad from a big city in the East, seeking her fortune and/or a husband. Miss Maddie took her under her wing as soon as she stepped off the coach, offering her instead a job, and the chance to make her own future. Less concerned with her reputation than with getting by, Sally took the opportunity. During a brawl in the common room at the club, Sally ran behind the bar. Rather than hide, she came out swinging a bottle and laid low several of the participants. Miss Maddie was impressed, and sees greater possibilities for Sally.

Run & Gun
Frankie is a ranch hand on the McCabe spread west of Trinidad, following in the footsteps of his older brother, Josh. He came to Miss Maddie’s with his first paycheck, met Sally, and headed back to the ranch the next day, leaving behind his money and his heart. He is devoted to Sally, promising to earn enough to “save” her from her life at the club, and will always step in to protect her and the other girls. He is seen as a younger brother by most of the girls at the club.
