Hi all

I bought the BWG paperback version from Lulu (I think) way back in 2011, before Kickstarter and new Weird West were being thought of.
Looking at the PDF version of the "new" rules, I can see that
1) Can only have as many skills as Int score
2) Only lose one HP in Defense, regardless of number of hits (in the paperback it was 1 HP for each successful hit!)

Are these the only differences? I'm currently working through the book and looking at the PDF to see if there's anything else that's changed.

Thanks in advance

Yep, that's pretty much all that changed between the Lulu book and the new printed book.

But, when the next batch of miniatures are released I'm going to be putting together a new PDF with some other minor rules updates and errata. Basically when building a custom gang, henchmen's attributes can be no higher than 4, professionals 5 but their favored attribute can go to 6. And then gang leaders and hired guns can all go to 6.

Gang Leaders and Hired Guns will be 1 and the same, and will eventually be changed to "heroic characters" .. any gang leader or hired gun can lead a gang, but usually the gang leaders will be a better choice since they will have a skill that benefits everyone.

And for horses, large horses and warhorses will have 2 HP instead of 1.

I was going to wait until I know the new models are actually shipping before I finish the PDF update. I'll probably post it in the next week or so.
