After reading many glowing things about these rules, I downloaded the .pdf from Wargame Vault for about $10. And I'm very impressed; they look like a lot of fun.
One nice thing is that there won't be many hundreds of figures to paint. The typical gang (what they call a "League") is around a half-dozen figures . . . so it won't be too hard to build a few.
Being in British Columbia, Canada, I naturally ordered some 28mm miniatures from Bob Murch's "Pulp Figures" . . . but there are several other wonderful suppliers serving the pulp genre.
Now to get out the paint brush, eh?
