Gutshot is a rip-roaring tabletop miniatures game compatible with all 25mm-30mm miniatures that you're already stocking from Artizan, Foundry, Dixon, Old Glory, Monday Knight, Westwind, and others. Set in the American Wild West, this game delivers a simple system to run one-on-one and small-scale combat that is fast, simple, and exciting. Designed for 3-8 players, Gutshot lets gamers experience the thrilling adventures of another time. The game is character driven, features a campaign system that encourages replayability, and with a $19.95 cover price, Gutshot delivers more bang for your buck!


Over the past four years, more than 80 people have playtested Gutshot. Rigorous playtesting helped the creators refine the combat system and focus on the things that help Gutshot stand out from other Western skirmish games:

  • Character-Driven Gaming - This is all up-close-n-personal, so you won't find large armies in this game.
  • Specialties - Unique abilities eliminate "cookie-cutter characters."
  • Streamlined Combat Engine - Gameplay is fast and deadly!
  • Initiative - Random actions impose a level of chaos, making this Western truly wild!
  • Campaign System - Experience system allows characters to improve their abilities over time... if they live long enough.
  • Online Support - Free downloads of all game aids, including Character Sheets, Horse Record Sheets, Vehicle Record Sheets, and free adventures.
  • Quick-Start Guide - Experienced gamers can figure out most of the game basics by reading this one section of the book.


If you're already carrying Western miniatures, then Gutshot is a perfect addition to your catalogue. Our game is compatible with all 25mm-30mm figures, including those by Artizan, Foundry, Dixon, Old Glory, Monday Knight, Westwind, and others. In fact, the book is illustrated with photos of figures from most of these lines.

Key Selling Points:

  • Price - At only $19.95 for 178 pages, the book is a great bargain that prevents the “sticker shock” some gamers are experiencing with more-expensive products on the market.
  • Appearance/Quality - The book itself is high-quality in appearance and printing quality. It is lavishly illustrated with photos, vintage and new artwork. It's a top-quality product that look great on your store shelves (and even better in your customer's hands).
  • Discounts - We offer industry-standard discounts to both distributors and retailers.
  • No Minimum Orders - If you just want to see one book before commiting to a larger order, that's fine with us! But... we will need to confirm that you're a bona fide retail outlet and not some flannel-mouthed tinhorn trying to scam a discounted book from us!
  • In-Store Promotions - We have posters, flyers, and stock advertising to help you promote the game to your customers.
  • Online Promotions - We advertise Gutshot on and will be taking out other banner ads at key miniatures Websites to help spread the word about Gutshot, so you won't have to.
  • Online Retailers List - Our Website has a list of all retailers who carry our game. We are very pro-active about getting our game onto your shelves.
  • In-Store Demo Support - We offer prize support and incentives to stores/clubs that commit to run a five-game campaign. We believe that our campaign system is one of the strongest selling points and we're convinced that once people play in one, they'll be anxious to get Gutshot so they can run their own.

Our main goal is to get Gutshot onto the shelves of game stores. We think we've created a quality product that's a lot of fun to play, but it won't do us any good if no one ever sees it.

That's why we will bust our butts to make sure that our main outlet will always be game distributors, Friendly Local Game Stores (FLGS), and comic book stores. To show our commitment, we promise not to undersell you on our Website: everything is sold at full retail price plus shipping. Additionally, although we cannot control what other people do, we will carefully reconsider doing business with anyone who buys our products and dumps them online with the intention of driving down the prices for everyone.

So, if you're a distributor or Friendly Local Game Store (FLGS) and you're interested in carrying Gutshot, please contact us at:
