LOL lots of hand waving?

Good question, though. That is a tricky bit of background to overcome while bridging the two games.

While there’s lots of similarities to what has come before, it‘s a new setting, not a continuation of the original.

In the Dystopian Age setting, the Union won the Civil War. The American faction are the Union of Federated American States.

Mmmm if you read the confederated states info on spartan games it clearly states the rebellious states won and changed the government so that's clearly different than the obvious Union lean of Wild West exodus miniatures. Just sayin.

Hey Warcradle: can you post this sort of information in a manner other than a 20+ minute video? I'm interested in following how the Spartan acquisition shakes out but my time is precious to me and I refuse to watch such a long video where the pertinent information could be read as text in just a minute or two. I know our culture has gone all multi-media crazy in the last ~5 years but video is really the least efficient means of conveying this sort of information.

So no more crown or celestials in wwx?
Did they have any models specific to their factions?

What a shame they didn't know that before releasing the 2.0 rulebook.

I look forward to seeing where things go.

Not sure about celestials, but from the sound of the video the Kingdom of Britannia is going to become the Crown in Dystopian Wars; The sense I had is that major parts of the DW background will be changed to fit WWX, and not the other way around.

Celestial/Crown had a few models, but they were all dual faction anyways, and not enough to run a posse. Nimue was crown for example, but that always seemed odd to me, as Nemo wasn't exactly a fan of the British. Speaking of which, anyone know why Zarelda Kincaide is Confederate? That struck me as highly unusual/troubling for a POC.

I was looking forward to seeing some African Warrior Nation expansion though, as there would be some really cool model designs. Wondering if we'll get a warmachine/hordes situation going where WWX is specifically in the American frontier and they have another game set in the rest of the world.

So, Covenant of Antarctica is now The Enlightened? I'm not sure how I feel about that. I'm assuming Dystopian Legions won't be crossing over. So I guess I should grab those Dystopian Legions figures I want before they're completely gone and retconned out of the game.

The CoA and Enlightened have very different ideological views, which as a CoA player I'm not hugely happy about the melding of.

Gotta love the way the Chinese are now being shoe-horned in under the Japanese because they are both Asian too, not racially insensitive at all.

Are the Chinese part of the Japanese or the other way around? And not seeing the details, they could easily be equal partners of an Asian alliance against the rest of the world. Time will tell.

Given the way they are saying there is "more" to announce later, I wouldn't be surprised if Dystopian Legions was relaunched at some point in the future as a reskinned WWX set in Africa.

So not the revival of dystopian wars I was hoping for, but instead a naval game for wild west exodus, which may or may not use some of the old dystopian wars models.

Not good news.

If you re-release the old model range, you may get some business from me as I need to complete a couple of fleets, but my interest in the new version of the game just took a hard nose dive.

I think what Warcradle is doing is trying to give as much as they can whilst at the same time tightening up the number of factions. One could argue that Spartan spread Dystopian out too fast over too many factions; likely because they got locked into always chasing a new faction/fleet to add for the sales boost it gave.


I can see why they'd re-write big chunks and mating it to their current game makes sense too as it lowers the marketing costs; don't forget near the end Dystopian was basically surviving on a very loyal small market core (and actually as a company Spartan weren't surviving well).

The new Bretonian ship looks very much like the old style; but there's some new features - the lions head (which I approve of greatly) and the new gun designs. I think if they can keep the old style like that and give us something new it should be great.

Post by: NTRabbit


So I'm guessing France was merged into one of the new factions? Latin Alliance maybe? I figured some factions would be disappearing, because Spartan had made way too many, but it's contrry to my expectations to see the Ottomans in, and France out, considering the Ottomans were a small French ally iirc.


Warcradle Studios - News - Updated 30th September 2019 - New Releases & Spiel 2019! (pg20) @ 2017/12/03 11:02:47


Post by: Overread


It might be that they are also simply putting some factions fully aside. As the combat is happening outside of the core territories (eg Europe) they can potentially have some major factions sit outside of the war.

Then if the range does really well they can be added in, either in a major way (full new faction) or a minor (mercenaries).


The war they are designing feels very much like they are recreating the age of pirate ships, new-world colonies and such ;only instead of it being all over America its all over Africa and America.


Warcradle Studios - News - Updated 30th September 2019 - New Releases & Spiel 2019! (pg20) @ 2017/12/03 11:54:00


Post by: NTRabbit


Just seems odd, as France was one of the complete range factions, rather than the minor ally with a naval battlebox faction like Italy and the Ottomans, and it's not like France weren't involved in the African and New World colony races, or the golden age of piracy.

No interest in buying a different faction, so I guess I'll just keep watching from afar in 2018/19 and see what happens.

e: Just saw on facebook, the Latin Alliance is the League of Italy, the Spanish Sovereignty, and the French Republique, so that's answered for me at least

Zarelda isn't Confederate, she's in the Outlaw faction like the Confederates are but her allegiance is Wayward 8. So she's basically Zoe Washburne

I can see why they're doing this, and that it will make it easier for them going forward,

but i'm not convinced it's the right way to go (except the prising the land and sea stuff apart for dystopian, that is a step forward as it never really worked) and think it's going to hurt them in the short term

but i'll be interested to see where it ends up

I think it's going to be a mistake in switching to 10mm. The scale of game scratched a different itch and was a unique part of playing truly colossal engagements with giant combat engines that you cannot represent at 3x the scale (Land battleships for example), or at least easily and not without breaking the bank. At a minimum Warcradle really needs to consider at least having a cast on demand legacy section for those that want to still purchase the older 2mm products. At this point there's 0 products that I want to purchase as I don't want to play 10mm gaming (sorry got DZC and EA - 6-8mm but close enough a scale of game) for those.

Want to get a nice warm glow on those RJ Enhancements for Wild West Exodus? Or maybe you have another model waiting in the wings who could benefit from this quick guide?

Watch as Lewis adds some much needed 'glow' to his miniature, and maybe pick up a tip or 4 while you're at it.

This is not Kickstarter stock as we did not receive any stock from the Kickstarter. This is a reworked model of the Ice Maiden and the first time it is being released.

IIRC some people did get their product meaning production was already on their way for at least some of the stuff. chances are any of the big backers custom guys are dead in the water.

also it seems there are some google images of ice maiden so there may have been a hand full of them done.

IS THAT A FREAKING SPERM WHALE WITH A LASER ON ITS HEAD?


WANT!*

Overall really liking things and it seems that you're actually pushing yet more detail onto already detailed models; will really love to see these coming out.

The Whale also gives me a lot of hope for Uncharted Seas as well as if you're able to craft up more organic (ergo less tanky/blocky) models then that gives me great thoughts to seeing warships, sea monsters, dragons and such!

*I recall Spartan teasing us for years that there was going to be a Dr Moreau/Darwin faction with basically cybermonsters and such or similar.

I like the separation of naval and ground combat. Way more interested in ground, but getting into Dystopian Wars always seemed like it wanted to push me towards the water. No!

Plus having actual infantry this time around will be fun.

The only way to better whales with frickin' laser beams on their heads would be to have FLYING whales with frickin' laser beams on their heads!

I'm afraid it would be a kind of boring model to have them just sitting at the waterline with their faces popping out.

I will not discount the awesomeness of flying spermwhales with laserbeams on their heads

BUT

Sperm Whales are famous for breaching, now there's a vision. Not just a head popping up with the whale breaching and twisting in the air in a massive display of power. Sure its got a laser on its head; but it can also leap up and crush smaller ships. Also if it were charging forward a large amount of its fore and upper body could be above the waterline.

I really hope that they don't go for the idea of having submersed units "flying" on flight stands - to my eye that would look totally wrong (esp in a game with regular flying units).

It is awesome that you'll be at AdeptiCon!!

Since you asked the thing I most want to see, personally, is news on where you'll be taking your games, maybe even a meet and greet / feedback session.

Edit: Whoops, I was thinking Dropfleet but this applies to Firestorm Armada, too!

I thought Warcradle only had Firestorm not Dropzone?

Also don't suppose there's any job there for a guy with a camera and a few lights?

Painting wood effects can be a tricky beast to handle... Watch as Lewis paints up wooden bases and get some ideas for your own work while you're at it.

Those bases won't paint themselves, after all...

Enjoy!

Thanks for the continued painting tips/guides!
One thought - any chance of getting the paint types used to include suggestions for most top brands (GW, P3 and the one starting with V that I can never remember the name of). Granted the actual method would be shown only in one brand, but having a list of alternative similar paints from other brands would be neat for beginners and those who use only one brand.


Also is the Warcralde/spartan website down?

Army painter paints would be great in my mind, not the best brand, but they provided me a cross reference sheet between their brands and then the Dakkadakka page with cross reference colors filled in the other manufacturers.

My thanks
It seems the spartan site did go down/lag terribly over the weekend (based on what I've read on the warcradle forums); of course this hit me since I used to get to the warcradle forums (former spartan forums) via the spartan site - so when one went down I also lost access to the other (and made an assumption that the two were linked).

Your miniatures looking a little bit too neat and tidy? They are supposed to have been through the wars, after all, yet they look a little too pristine…

Watch Lewis’ Worn Fabric tutorial to add some much-needed wear to those clothes!

We are very excited to announce that 24th February 2018 sees the first release of terrain from Warcradle Studios! There are five new buildings available for pre-order including the Red Oak Residence, the Red Oak Cartwright's, the Red Oak Jail, the Red Oak Metal Smith, and the Red Oak Post Office; all of which are supplied primed for easy painting.

With these buildings, you can further immerse yourself into the Dystopian Age and add a special dimension to your Wild West Exodus tabletop gaming experience!

Alongside the release of the new Red Oak buildings - great for setting the scene when playing Wild West Exodus - the highly anticipated Fortune Chips & Dice set including four special ten-sided dice is also available for pre-order!

The Fortune Chips & Dice Set, released 3rd February 2018, includes four special ten-sided dice, each featuring their Critical Success and Critical Failure values, and a stack of ten Fortune chips that let you keep track during your games as you tempt fate, push your luck and bend Fortune at will.

                


RED OAK RESIDENCE
These homes are of a common design found throughout the settlements of the West. Cheap and plentiful timber is supported with steel joists and copper conduits so that homesteaders have access to all of the modern conveniences that the RJ-powered Dystopian Age can offer. These modern homes are always in demand, so act quickly to secure your very own piece of the West!

This Wild West Exodus Scenery kit contains:

1x Red Oak Residence Building
Assembly Instructions

          



RED OAK CARTWRIGHT'S
The advent of the Iron Horse has been a boon to the scattered settlements of the American Frontier. Of course, even these wonderous technological marvels require maintenance and recharging from time to time. Cartwrights, like this one, offer affordable services to the good folk of Red Oak - certainly preferable to dealing with the Enlightened as their assistance often literally costs an arm and a leg...

This Wild West Exodus Scenery kit contains:

1x Red Oak Cartwright Building
Optional signage for a Red Oak Delivery Office
Assembly Instructions
 

                



RED OAK JAIL
This distinctive structure is ideal for securing ne'er-do-wells and other miscreants in secure surroundings. The Jail makes a superb strongpoint for Lawmen and other agents to uphold the Law in Red Oak and beyond. With the Jail in your town, you can be sure that Outlaws can be kept out of sight, but never out of mind!

This Wild West Exodus Scenery kit contains:

1x Red Oak Jail Building
Assembly Instructions


              



RED OAK METAL SMITH
Steel and steam are the foundation of the Dystopian Age. Businesses like this Metal Smith ensure that both are in plentiful supply - especially for a fair price! From simple repairs to steel-shod shelters to more advanced metalworking, the Red Oak Metal Smithy is always busy!

This Wild West Exodus Scenery kit contains:

1x Red Oak Metal Smith Building
Optional signage for a Red Oak General Store
Assembly Instructions


                



RED OAK POST OFFICE
While for the very wealthy, near instant communications can be achieved through radio and other more esoteric means, for most the Post Office represents the only means of communicating with the world outside the town limits. Typical delivery was between a month and ten days, depending on the importance of the letter or package and of course the cost. The Post Office is an important place to not only send and receive messages but also for the local community to meet and share news as it arrives from the Union and beyond.

This Wild West Exodus Scenery kit contains

1x Red Oak Post Office Building
Optional signage for a Red Oak Doctors
Assembly Instructions







FORTUNE CHIPS & DICE SET
Fight the battles of Wild West Exodus with these superb dice and Fortune chips. This set includes four special ten-sided dice for use with Wild West Exodus. Each die features their Critical Success and Critical Failure values with easily recognisable symbols. The stack of ten Fortune chips will let you easily keep track during your games as you tempt fate and push your luck by bending your Fortune to your will.


This product contains

10x Fortune Chips
4x Dice

In addition to the Infernal Investigations posse and the Ranger Showboat posse previews, we've got TWO more to share with you! It's time to feast your eyes on all of the miniatures set to make up a total of FOUR new posse's sets coming to Wild West Exodus later this year.



Below you will find images of the Infernal Investigations posse and the Ranger Showboat posse as well as Countess Byron's Galvanic Mysteries and the Dark Nation Posse, not forgetting the immense Vor Khet!

Without further ado...


HELENA'S INFERNAL INVESTIGATIONS POSSE
Led by Marshal Helena Miller, the Infernal Investigations work tirelessly across the American Frontier, protecting the citizens from the bizarre and beastly that lurk in the dark corners of Wild West Exodus! Look for the Infernal Investigations Posse later this year!




WILD BILL'S RANGER SHOWBOAT POSSE
The Ranger Showboat is on its way! Wild Bill brings some firm favourites to be available again as miniatures with updated sculpts. Plus the Posse introduces the infamous Calamity Jane to Wild West Exodus!




COUNTESS BYRON'S GALVANIC MYSTERIES
The Countess is unrivalled in her knowledge of the Galvanic Mysteries. This Enlightened Posse is coming later in the year - unleash Creation V, Creation X, Creation XIII and Mantis to bring terror to your enemies.





WICASASNI'S DARK NATION POSSE
Hatred and corruption define Wicasasni and her Dark Nation Posse. The spidery Khali, the fiery winged Camazotz, the lithe and lethal limbed Seke and the rage-fuelled Nizhoni round out this deadly group. Hex



And for those wondering about the immense Vor Khet, don't worry, he's so massive he needs to be released separately!

Both The Dark Nation Posse and Vor Khet will be available later this year.




Which faction do you play?
Which one would like to get on your tabletop?

I'm liking all those new sculpts. Mildly irritated about owning a few of the resins in some of those sets, but I figure I can always trade off the duplicates pretty easily.

Unless these end up in plastic, in which case I will happily double dip.

Standouts for me (that I don't already own) are the guy getting his drink on, and what looks to be a new version of the tainted Walks Looking.

The Viridian play an important role in the Watchers. Deployed as airborne Chigoe assault units or as fire support Locust teams, the Viridian excel at targeted strikes. The Viridian Betas provide excellent unit command, giving the Chigoe and Locust units the benefit of their leadership and experience. Ultimate authority resides with the Viridian Alpha who commands all the warriors of his Clade and focuses their actions so that victory belongs to the Watchers.

The wise Viridian Alpha deploys with the Chigoe and Locust in battle as the powerful Viridian Clade to strike at the enemies of the Watchers. This boxed set includes six fantastic plastic and resin miniatures. This multi-part kit can build 3 Viridian as either Locusts or Chigoe.

The Viridian Clade Posse Set contains
1x Viridian Alpha
1x Chigoe Beta
1x Locust Beta
3x Viridian Locusts / Chigoe
6x Bases

The Viridian Clade Starter Set contains everything in the Posse Set plus
1x Wild West Exodus Rules and Gubbins Set
A Softback A5 Rulebook
Condition Tokens
Blast and Torrent Templates
4x D10 Dice
1x Action Card Deck

Warcradle Studios are very happy to announce that we have expanded our global distribution range. We are proud to see the addition of both Corvus Belli and Wyrd Miniatures to our ever-growing trade catalogue which currently includes fantastic products from companies such as The Army Painter, Knight Models, and Blood & Plunder.



Wyrd Miniatures is a passionate and innovative game company dedicated to creating high-quality games and fostering a positive community. Through online competitions, event support, and local game store support, Wyrd is constantly striving to bring tabletop gaming to new players around the world - and we are thrilled to support Wyrd Miniatures in their mission.

Wyrd Miniatures most recognised game, Malifaux, is based in an alternate Earth, and is a melting-pot of gothic, steampunk, and victorian horror with a dose of the wild west to inject fun and depth into the magical lawlessness of a world rife with monsters, necropunks, man-machine hybrids, gunslingers, and power-hungry politicos. Actively using character-driven stories to define the world of Malifaux, seek your fortune in this fast paced and brutal 32mm tabletop miniature skirmish game. Assemble your crew and stake your claim!

Trade customers will be able to order Malifaux, alongside other Wyrd Miniatures products, from Warcradle Studios.



Corvus Belli pride themselves on being passionate players, first and foremost, who look for the utmost quality in their product and are devoted to designing and manufacturing games and figures. Their main product, Infinity, was born with the ambition to satisfy the most demanding audience and to offer the best quality - and, if you're like us, you can see that they do just that!

Corvus Belli's Infinity is a tabletop wargame in which sci-fi themed miniatures are used to simulate futuristic skirmishes and recreates Direct Action operations, high-stakes missions on the battlefront or behind enemy lines, where victory or death are a trigger pull away. Players command a small group of elite soldiers, chosen for their suitability for the mission parameters at hand. Each battle calls for a different composition, and building an effective team from hand-picked members of different regiments is key to a successful operation.

Infinity, and other Corvus Belli products, will be distributed globally by Warcradle Studios for Trade customers.



We, at Warcradle Studios, cannot wait to start collaborating with Corvus Belli and Wyrd Miniatures. Their product will be available to purchase on your Trade Order Form very soon.

If you are a member of a Trade organisation and would like further information regarding this announcement, please contact our sales team: https://blog.warcradle.com/trade-contact-form

For several months now, we have been busy developing Dystopian Wars Third Edition. Though we knew that the new edition would be a complete overhaul of the game engine, miniatures, and the narrative, we wanted to make sure that this new edition still felt like it was Dystopian Wars.

As the Alpha testing is well and truly underway, we are pleased to reveal two key members of the rules development team; Derek Sinclair and Josh Le Cheminant, two games designers with a long pedigree with Dystopian Wars and who are now part of the Warcradle Studios team supporting the development of the Third Edition.

With Adepticon underway, Derek took time out from his day job of fighting dragons in the Scottish Highlands share with us some of his thoughts as he returns to the roiling seas of Dystopia!

So what has been revealed during Adepticon for WWX?

Some fantastic Posses are on the way, including a particularly nasty hombre who's brought his family with him!

Don't forget you can pick up your limited edition Adepticon Pin at the show or online here http://www.wildwestexodus.com/wwx-root/52005-wild-west-exodus-adepticon-2018-show-pin, but only when Adepticon is running!



The Secret Service continues to defend the Union from the shadows.

Led by the remarkable Director Lincoln, the agents of the Union undertake all manner of assignments too difficult or morally questionable for the army.

Robert Pinkerton is Lincoln's strong right hand, giving sage counsel to the fearless former President.

Henry Courtwright is a master saboteur and Automata specialist and Agent Lucinda Loveless is a legend in the Service having saved the Union from insidious foreign plots on several occasions.

Camilla Blanche is an expert in clandestine infiltration and assassination while Milo Jefferson makes up for his relative inexperience in the field with his specialist knowledge of artillery and armour weak-points.

Look out for the Secret Service - sneaking up on you... soon!



Felipe Espinosa is one of the most ruthless and treacherous bandits to curse the American frontier. Leading the twisted mariachi band 'The Bloody Espinosas' Felipe has a dreaded reputation as a bounty hunter and raider.

The music played by this family of liars and cutthroats is terrifyingly jarring as it accompanies them while they go about their bloody butchery. The hard-faced Jose and scarred Luccia Espinosa are never too far from their murderous older brother
while the youngest, Pedro, is content to amuse himself by playing a tune and adding to his collection of trophies cut from his victims.

Vivian Espinosa was once like his brothers but found true love with the beautiful Sofia Antoniela. Wanting to leave the blighted band for a new life, a fight with his brother Jose mortally wounded him. As he lay dying, his tainted soul transformed him into a drooling Hex Beast. His wife, Sofia, could not be parted from him even in this new form and nursed a shred of his former personality from the hulk of flesh and pain he had become.

Now the six are united in a song of murder and mayhem that will only end in death...

Kestral - Dystopian isn't planned for release until the latter half of this year. When Spartan Games closed down they didn't sell up the company as a whole, instead it went into administration. So Warcradle didn't get the whole package, plus what they did get was unsorted. So they've had to resort what they've bought and also rebuild their own factory setup. This is on top of updating and redesigning the game system so that they can pair it with their WWE system that they already own.

February saw the release of the first Red Oak terrain from Warcradle Studios, it was so popular that we've released a further three sets of terrain, all part of the Red Oak range! You can now pre-order the Red Oak Distillery, the Red Oak Prospector's Shack, and the Red Oak Crates, Fences and Barrels from today, all of which are supplied primed for easy painting, due for release on Saturday, March 31st.

With these buildings, you can further immerse yourself into the Dystopian Age and add a special dimension to your Wild West Exodus tabletop games. Each piece of terrain has been manufactured in Medium Density Fibre Board (MDF).

Alongside the release of the new Red Oak terrain - a great way to set the scene in games of Wild West Exodus - we have the Angry Mob miniature set!

Make sure to check the whole of March's pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of the new products.




http://www.wildwestexodus.com/pre-order-products/52039-red-oak-prospector-s-shack

Not every home in the Union is a mighty Promethean Complex, mansion or townhouse. Most of the folk who live out in the settlements make shelters out of whatever materials they can find. These rickety shacks, while commonplace are usually temporary and you often see wagons nearby ready to be hitched up when the resident decides its time to move on.


http://www.wildwestexodus.com/terrain/52043-red-oak-crates-fences-and-barrels

A sturdy fence, barrel or crate serves several purposes out on the frontier. The most obvious is to secure property and assist with the transport of goods. For gunslingers and civilians alike, they also make superb cover which they can run between when the bullets start to fly!


http://www.wildwestexodus.com/terrain/52044-red-oak-distillery

Distilleries are an important part of any growing town. A booming industry in the Union frontier, it is highly lucrative being able to supply the good folk of the West a steady supply of hooch, rocket fuel and other more medicinal libations.




http://www.wildwestexodus.com/accessories/52059-angry-mob

Angry Mobs are useful strategic units in Wild West Exodus. Combining the ability to deal a surprising amount of damage with the ability to disrupt your enemies plans as they draw attention to themselves. Uncaring governments, interfering lawmen, mysterious mutilations in the middle of the night... There's a lot to get angry about in the Dystopian Age!

This product contains

4x Angry Civilian Miniatures
3x Bases.

What's this? Salute 2018 is just around the corner so it's time to announce something very special indeed... Let's give a big welcome to Nakano Gozen - Emissary of the Blazing Sun!

Nakano Gozen has lived her entire life in service to the Blazing Sun - the Immortal Empress Shinzua. As a direct descendant of the Empress with a startling likeness, Gozen has been trained extensively in both the martial and diplomatic arts. While her adventurous nature made her unsuitable for a role at court, Gozen was trusted instead with a secret mission to the American Frontier.

As Emissary of the Blazing Sun, Nakano Gozen's mission has brought her into contact with both the Lawmen and Outlaws in the Wild West. While she is treated with suspicion by the authorities, her skill with the blade and silver tongue make her a valued ally to the Outlaws. Her interest in the activities of Doctor Carpathian has not gone unnoticed by the Enlightened or Union agents either...





Nakano Gozen is the new promotional resin miniature by Warcradle Studios, for Wild West Exodus.

Nakano will be released at Salute 2018, at the ExCel London, and available for purchase from our stand (TE10) for £13.00. After this, she will be available to purchase at events attended by Warcradle Studios - so you'll be able to get your mitts on this brand new promotional miniature from the Warcradle Studios stand at UK Games Expo, Gen Con, and Tabletop Gaming Live this year - as well as at selected Trailblazer events.

Not attending? Feeling like your missing out? Don't worry!

We will be making Nakano Gozen available to purchase online during events attended by Warcradle Studios! Initially, she will be available from our online store between 09:00 and 21:00 BST on 14th April 2018 while we are at Salute. Her next appearance online will be during UK Games Expo at the start of June!

Nakano Gozen is our promotional miniature until 2019 when she will become part of our regular catalogue of fantastic miniatures - available to all!

Dang it, you guys are finally going to make me have to make an order from across the pond!

A shame (in some ways) that she won't be plastic like last year's Captain Nimue, but the model looks quite nice.

Will she be on a small or medium base? Looks like a 40mm, but what do I know...

The game isn't out yet so it's no surprise that the community is quiet! There's not much to talk about for Dystopian Wars until the build-up starts for the Open Beta this Summer. You can expect plenty of sneak-peeks in the run-up to it of course!

Though the half-dozen who have left will no doubt spin their own narrative, largely most of the concerns boiled down to the removal of third-party sales posts and a push against the expectation Warcradle has that on the official community pages people will be well behaved and speak to each other respectfully. Not exactly front page tabloid stuff, but for some, it was a change to how things had been before and so was unwelcome.

Warcradle staff have come across as a bit adversarial on FB / a couple of other forums, getting into heated arguments with dystopian wars fans. It seems like an odd approach for a company. I don't think it helps that there are some hardcore fans of the Spartan game, and where people were hoping for warcradle to pick up where Spartan left off they seem to want to change everything about the game, making sweeping changes to the fluff, model range and by the impression they give off the rules. Most people just want the old models available again.

All the unofficial groups were co-opted by Warcradle and brought under their control. Anyone who disagreed with anything at all got the phrase "while we don't mind criticism, it must be constructive" but, apparently none of the criticism was ever considered constructive. Staff were at times rude and abrasive. And those who agreed with them on everything were allowed to get away with rude posting behaviour that others would not have.

While the overall group numbers went up, that doesn't mean a decent chunk of people didn't leave. I know just before I left I'd see lots of discussion threads with people's names marked as no longer being members. Thankfully, a new fan group was setup after the last of the previous ones went under their control.

To be clear, I didn't have a problem with Warcradle originally, it was the FB behaviour that turned me off (I actually own 2 WWX factions).

Sadly, they made similar sweeping changes to WWX as well which is one reason I left that game.

Hi Warcradle,

I am new to WWX and this fabulous world you guys continue to support and want to say I love the models fluff, etc. and thanks. I was wondering if we would ever see some representations of Jeremiah Johnson, Rooster Cogburn, Dances WW, Little Big Man, Crow nation, Preacher, The Man with no name, etc.

Here's a quick step by step on how Warcradle Daz painted the awesome new Wild West Exodus terrain!

To kick off, I undercoated the model black. No photo here (who needs a photo of a black building, after all).

STEP ONE



Build up 3D effects with grey.

I use an airbrush but you can get very similar effects using a spray can. If you're using a brush, get a big ol' one inch round and stipple on the paint in thin layers.

STEP TWO



To increase the 3D effects, once again, I go in with white.

STEP THREE



Glaze the entire model with a Sepia Wash (approximately 7 parts water to 1 part paint).

I repeat this three times for a deep colour shift. I am still using the airbrush here but, if you do not have access to one, you can purchase weathering sprays which achieve a similar effect or go in with that big ol' brush - just don't let the glaze pool up.

STEP 4



Grab a decent sized brush and pick out individual planks with a selection of different brown washes.

For this model, I used a red-brown, yellow-brown, dark brown and black brown. I tend to make my own washes from P3 paint but there are loads of great alternatives out there. Once again, don't let the wash pool up.

STEP 5



Pick out the metallic areas. Take your time as it's very difficult to clean off slips. All metallic areas were painted in P3 Pig Iron.

The Brass areas were painted in P3 Brass Balls.

YOU'RE ALL FINISHED



See more images of the finished General Store on our blog here: https://blog.warcradle.com/blog/paintin-the-town-insert-colour

These should look great on the table top for now!

I'll be looking at how to take things to the next level with weathering and detailing next time.

Until then - happy paintin'!

You can find all of the Red Oak terrain on our online store, or from your regular FLGS or online stockist!

Assembly Instructions.

I really really love the concept designs shown!

They have a very clear new design to them and yet I can still see the hallmarks of the designs from Spartan Games. A really great way to update and refresh the line*. I really look forward to seeing these models in the flesh!

Plastic is also very interesting news and I really hope it does well. Whilst I admit that I like working with resin, good quality plastic can be good fun to work with. I've got Battlefleet Gothic and Dropfleet models here which clearly show the fantastic detailing that high quality plastics can achieve.

I'd say my only worry with plastic is moudlines. In my experiences high detail models are a "nightmare" with regard to mould lines. Resin is often a little easier just because the material is that bit softer and a touch easier to work at small areas over (though its still a nightmare). Then again ships seemed to always be very easy to work with as the mould line nearly always was around the base of the model; an area that could not only be easier to deal with, but also often held less detail so any damage and cleaning was a lot easier to work with.

I hope this carries through to the new designs and casting (as much as is practical and possible). For me one of the joys of Dystopian Wars and many other SGs was that cleaning up the models was often pretty easy and simple. No huge headaches or having to be super careful with files and blades going around corners and over netting/webbing/buckles and other fine pattern details and suchlike.

I not thrilled by any of the new designs either, they just look a bit too busy and fantastical. But really glad to hear the old stuff will be made available, warcradle are sure to get some of my money in June.

I just hope some of the stuff from the Kickstarter seems the light of day.

Not keen on the new designs myself, seems like moving more and more away from the alt-history of Dystopian Wars and into the sillier territory of WWX. As to plastic, it would be impossible to get some of the fine details of the resin models in plastic without mould lines making an absolute mess of it. The ships will have to be more exaggerated and 'heroic' to compensate.

Agreed not all mini's will work in plastic, but a competitively priced plastic starter would be a huge boost for the new edition.

Besides as long as the old stuff is still available it's a win win.

I realized there is one concept i liked the look of, the giant cyborg whale for the CoA. Hope they pull that one off (I.e. A waterlined version, not some flying through the air fish AoS style bs)

Introduction

Warcradle held a Q&A session today via Facebook and Twitch, where they put out all kinds of new information and some new renders as well. You can find the original video here, and below I’ve summarized the notes I took during the session. Note that these are my notes, and not a direct transcription of what was said during the Q&A; as such, don’t take everything I’ve said below as 100% gospel truth! At the end of the post, you can also find the renders that they put up on screen during the discussion. I haven’t included the WWX renders, as I forgot to screen-shot them!

    Neat idea with regard to turrets being configurable and having properties not just on what turrets you pick but also the positions on the ship that you choose to put them in!

    Legendary Rani Nimue




    http://www.store.wildwestexodus.com/outlaws/53890-legendary-rani-nimue

    The captain of the Nautilus is highly skilled with the blade and trident and is a formidable adversary on land or at sea, especially as her rotary harpette is never far from her side. Nimue’s love of fame and fortune is only tempered by her sense of loyalty to her crew. Beautiful, yet deadly, Nimue is a fickle force for change in the Wild West but whether for good or ill remains to be seen.

    The Legendary Rani Nimue kit contains one multi-part plastic miniature:

    1x Legendary Rani Nimue
    1x Bases.

    Price: £15

    Great Elk




    http://www.store.wildwestexodus.com/warrior-nation/48433-great-elk

    Great Elk are one of the Greater Beasts employed by the Warrior Nation in times of dire need. Great Elk are created by a combination of a willing animal and the spirit energy of a dozen shamans, it is not unheard of for an elderly or infirm shaman to die in the process of binding the spirit to the animal. Unlike other spirit beasts, Great Elk appear to have the ability to sustain themselves in spite of the massive energies coursing through them. Great Elk are thunderous charging walls of corded muscle and are used to break the backs of the more technologically advanced machines and defences of their enemies.

    The Great Elk kit contains one multi-part resin miniature:

    1x Great Elk Miniature
    1x Base.

    Price: £25

    We’re very excited to announce that the latest version (v. 1.08) is now available to download! You’ll be able to find the latest version of the Wild West Exodus Rulebook online along with the updated Unit Cards, Faction Posse and Armoury Cards, and Common Rules.

    So, what's changed? You'll find a brief overview of changes right here, so keep reading!

    Download the latest Rulebook (v. 1.08): https://www.wildwestexodus.com/media#essentials


    What's Changed? - Rulebook

    Well not a lot, really. We've just added a TONNE of new background information! Alongside some changes to a few special rules, this version of the Rulebook is a larger book than before, and it's chock full of Dystopian Age background on all eight factions.

    If you've enjoyed games up until now, the new background information is bound to leave you itching to play, paint, and build even more. Perhaps you've always wondered how The Outlaws with their fiercely independent men and women came to be, or the reasons behind The Watchers choice to visit Earth and, even more importantly, why they now chose to stay.

    Now's the time to delve deep and find the answers you've been looking for, and more...

    What's Changed? - Special Rules and Cards

    In this update, we've made a few changes to the Tough, Quick and the Dead and Stun special rules. We've also made some clarifications highlighted by members of our online community (yes that's you guys). Be sure to check these out when you download the latest version!

    As we've updated the Rulebook; Unit cards, Faction Posse, Armoury cards, and Common Rules, now reflect the latest version as well.

    You’ll notice that, on the new website, cards have been grouped by unit type under each faction, and the Outlaws have all been split up by affiliation. This means specific character cards are easier and quicker to find - we’re good like that.

    Simply pick a faction to access all updated cards and click the character thumbnail to view the Unit card. Nice and simple.

    Download updated cards (v. 1.08): https://www.wildwestexodus.com/rules-and-cards


    CORE RULES - GERMAN AND SPANISH TRANSLATIONS

    Wild West Exodus core rules have been translated into German and Spanish - they're now available to download for FREE too!

    Some information on older models, not necessarily good news:

    WARCRADLE CLASSICS
    Will unreleased Spartan Models which had renders and Dystopian Legions be amongst the classics released?

    Anything that had a mould when we took over Spartan will be tested. If the mould is viable then we might be able to release that model as part of Warcradle Classics.

    Also, some models are made up of parts from various moulds, so we have the massive tasks of finding multiple moulds for various parts and checking whether or not they are viable and then cast them. This is a long process and will take time to go through, however, we hope to have some items out in the next week or so.

    Just to be clear, if there isn’t a mould it will not be on the list. If any moulds are damaged or have missing parts they will not be released as part of Warcradle Classics.

    Models requiring metal or acrylic are less likely to be produced if we don't have the components.


    A lot of the ships, like the ottomans had metal turrets so that's very sad news

    As for good news:



    "Thomas Edeson’s posse for Enlightened featuring Mina Edeson as well as gun dogs with phonic blasters and three menials with phonic blasters."

    I think the vast majority of ships had metal turrets. Certainly all of the Bretonnia I had had the same metal turret. One bonus is that as many of the turrets were the same through a faction the turrets should - in theory - have a viable mould in the pile

    IT might just take them a long while to find it.

    In the end if it proves hard I'd rather they focused on releasing the new models than wasting too much time on the classics. They can always return to look at the classics again in the future (in fact it might even do them well to get the new stuff out and release classics later when many of the market might be reinvigorated and interested. Right now I've a feeling that there's an almost litteral handful of interested people hanging on online for classic models)

    There are hardly any DW model's which didn't have some metal component, I know any Prussian ships I've painted did, and all of the dreadbot's had metal add on's.
    I think the covenant are the only faction I have that mostly have resin turrets.

    I'm now worried that the bit's I need to finish my current fleets won't come up as part of the classic's line.

    Kyoto I think most of these are one mould castings which makes sense as when Warcradle got the moulds they basically got a pallet of jumbled up moulds (and from posts on the WC forums it seems the ID code software/library was either inaccessible/corrupted/damaged). So they have to work out what goes with what.

    That said we might see them, a lot of ships shared the same turret in metal so in theory if they find the mould with the metal turrets then it should be fairly easy to case up provided they've got the metal casting facilities to spare.


    Still it's great to see some warships in production once more

    At Tabletop Gaming Live 2018, you’ll be able to take part in the Warcradle Studios officially run UK Gunslinger Masters event for the chance to win glory for your Faction! The fact that you’ll be in for a chance to win some epic prizes AND get to meet the Trailblazer team (Daz and Craig cannot wait to meet you all) is a very happy bonus, I’m sure.

    So, first things first, all participating players will receive a gold Fortune Chip (fancy, eh?) and will be in for a chance to win all sorts of goodies.



    Not only will the top three players receive the very shiny (and highly coveted, might I add) Gunslinger badges, which they will proudly be able to wear around the convention and beyond (go on, make your opponents drool with envy when you get back home), the top three players will also receive a voucher (£50 for placing First, £30 for placing Second, and £20 for placing Third) to spend at Warcradle Studios’ Tabletop Gaming Live stand.

    Those who place first will also receive something very special indeed…

    How special? Well, while we don’t want to spoil the surprise, we will say that the trophy will not be available anywhere outside of official Gunslinger Masters events - you really do have to be in it to win it!

    Make sure to book your tickets quick to take part in the first ever UK Masters and get your name in the Wild West Exodus Hall of Fame.



    Tickets are available from the Wild West Exodus website which gains you entry to Tabletop Gaming Live and the UK Masters Tournament, you will not need to purchase a separate entry ticket to the event.

    The Dark Nation Posse, led by the corrupt and wraith-like Wicasasni, is the second Posse set to be released for The Hex. The Dark Nation Posse is now available to pre-order alongside the Secret Service Posse, lead by none other than Abraham Lincoln himself (wielding an axe, of course).

    Need some support on the tabletop? We have some great support units on pre-order for Warrior Nation and Enlightened in the form of the heroic Kaga Brothers and a set of ruthless Enlightened Brutes. Hex players will be able to pre-order the Hexalith, an artefact imbued with the essence of the Hex, which was previously only available in the Absolute Power Posse.

    We can also announce that the Divine Intervention Starter Set and the Absolute Power Starter Set are available to pre-order from Warcradle Studios from today! These sets include everything from the previously released posse sets, with the addition of the Rules & Gubbins Set.

    Lastly, with Gen Con 2018 starting next week, make sure to get hold of your very own Nakano Gozen either online or at the event itself!

    As always, make sure to check the whole of this months pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of our new Wild West Exodus products.





    Nakano Gozen, our promotional miniature for 2018 will be available for purchase from our booth (3027) for £13.00.

    Not attending? Feeling like your missing out? Don't worry!

    We will be making Nakano Gozen available to purchase online during events attended by Warcradle Studios! During Gen Con, she will be available from our online store between 09:00 August 2nd until 21:00 BST on August 5th 2018. Her next appearance online will be during Tabletop Gaming Live at the end of September!

    Nakano Gozen is our promotional miniature until 2019 when she will become part of our regular catalogue of fantastic miniatures - available to all!

    DARK NATION POSSE




    The corruption of Walks Looking was the doorway to the tainting of the Warrior Nation. Ghost Wolf's daughter became tainted by The Hex and transformed into Wicasasni to become a twisted creature of malice and vengeance. Wicasasni took great delight in warping and corrupting the minds and bodies of her own people, creating a "Dark Nation".

    Though Wicasasni was eventually captured by Ghost Wolf and the tainted aspect driven out, the wraith-like creature that emerged was just as deadly and even more malevolent than before. Walks Looking returned to her people with half a soul, the other half now sustaining her darker aspect that had been given independence in the exorcism. While Wicasasni can no longer warp the flesh of her followers she is still surrounded by twisted men and women who are the product of her previous corrupting influence. Khali, Camazotz, Seke and Nizhoni now work with Wicasasni and together the Dark Nation will tear down the world of humanity and remake it in their own image.

    The Dark Nation Posse contains five multi-part resin miniatures:

    1x Wicasasni
    1x Khali
    1x Camazotz
    1x Seke
    1x Nizhoni
    5x Bases.
    Price: £38.00



    SECRET SERVICE POSSE




    Desperate times call for desperate measures and Abraham Lincoln believes that the times of the Dystopian Age are desperate indeed. Faking his own assassination in order to work unhindered by the demands of office, Director Lincoln now fights against the Union’s enemies alongside those men and women trusted enough to join his Secret Service.

    Lincoln and his agents wage a war in the shadows, defending their beloved country from threats that the general public must have no knowledge about. Whatever it takes so that the good folk of the Union of Federated States can sleep soundly in their beds. With the assistance of his right-hand man Robert Pinkerton, his top agents Lucinda Loveless and Camilla Blanche, Henry Courtwright, Leah Kingston and Milo Jefferson, Lincoln has the tools he needs to tackle any situation.

    The Secret Service Posse contains six multi-part resin miniatures:

    1x Abraham Lincoln
    1x Robert Pinkerton
    1x Lucinda Loveless
    1x Camilla Blanche
    1x Henry Courtwright
    1x Milo Jefferson
    1x Leah Kingston
    7 x Bases.
    Price: £35.00



    RED OAK WATCH TOWER





    Dominating the skyline of towns like Red Oak, these watchtowers allow the residents to keep a watchful eye for the telltale dust clouds that announce the arrival of Iron Horses and the bandits who often ride them. With parts to assemble it instead as a water tower, the Red Oak Watchtower is a great addition to your table or even the centre point for one.

    This Wild West Exodus Scenery kit contains:

    1x Red Oak Watchtower Building
    Options to build a Water Tower.
    Assembly Instructions.
    Price: £30.00



    NEW STARTER SETS





    The first of the Cor Caroli to walk the Earth, Makara leads her Divine Intervention to deliver humanity from the clutches of the Hex. Fighting alongside their leader are the powerful warriors Haan, Vulana, Mithun and Siraj, each encased in heavy armour and wielding a variety of advanced weaponry.

    The Divine Intervention Starter Set contains five Resin miniatures, a rule book, tokens, templates, dice and the Action and Adventure card decks.



    Absolute Power is the posse of the Third Man. Alongside this formidable Hex Boss is his loyal guardian Kreechur, the insidious Garratt Morden, the scheming Megan Wild, the vengeful Maria Torres-Villa and the traitorous John Hunter Bennett. The set also comes with a Hexalith, a mysterious totemic idol that the posse can draw power from.

    The Absolute Power Starter Set contains 7 multi-part resin miniatures, a rule book, tokens, templates, dice and the Action and Adventure card decks.



    Each Wild West Exodus Rules and Gubbins Set contains:

    A Softback A5 Rulebook
    Condition Tokens
    Blast and Torrent Templates
    4x D10 Dice
    1x Action Card Deck
    1x Adventure Card Deck
    Starter Set Price: £50



    KAGA BROTHERS





    The enemies arrayed against the Warrior Nation are many and powerful and the Great Spirit commands that they shun the use of the tainted technology from the Enlightened. Despite this limitation, the Warrior Nation make use of Gatling guns, heavy crossbows and other tribal weapons to destroy their foes, making up for a lack of such alien advantages with sheer heroism and faith in their traditions.

    Those who follow the Brotherhood of Kaga have resigned themselves to the fact that they will likely die in battle. Their use of support weapons and close proximity to the most deadly of conflicts makes this a certainty. The Kaga Brothers have their funeral rites upon initiation and their ranks are filled with those seeking atonement or with nothing else to lose. Deadly and valorous, the presence of Kaga Brothers in a force brings death with them, not just for themselves but for many of their enemies too.

    The Kaga Brothers kit contains three multi-part resin miniatures:

    1x Kaga Brother with Plainswalker Crossbow
    2x Kaga Brother with Gatling Gun
    3x Bases.
    Price: £15.00




    ENLIGHTENED BRUTES





    The ruthless pursuit of scientific progress can blind many to the moral questions raised by such progress. Such is the case with many of the creations of the Covenant of the Enlightened, Brutes being a prime example of this blindness.

    Through the use of RJ-1027, the subject’s impressive frame has its musculature increased significantly and performance and strength are further enhanced with mechanical augmentations. The result is a hulking servant capable of wielding the heaviest firearms and able to fold sheet metal as if it were paper. Brutes are employed as enforcers, soldiers, and bodyguards by the Enlightened and have proven to be formidable in all these roles.

    The Enlightened Brutes kit contains two multi-part resin miniatures:

    1x Enlightened Brute with Flamethrower miniature
    1x Enlightened Brute with Juiced Gatling Gun miniature
    2x Bases.
    Price: £15.00



    HEXALITH





    The energies of the Hex can be focussed and channelled in a number of ways, one being the creation of a Hexalith. These otherwise mundane objects have been imbued with the essence of the Hex and can be drawn on when needed to channel the extra-terrestrial power.

    Hexaliths can be made from any material but many hours of care and focus are required to attune it to the other-worldly energies. The resultant effect often creates an object of strange and unsettling design directly from the tainted mind of the creator.

    The Hexalith kit contains one single piece resin miniature:

    1x Hexalith miniature
    1x Base.
    Price: £6.00

    Was really expecting/hoping to see more originality out of the ranges for terrain from a company like this.

    You've basically just copied the set from wargamestournaments.com, and that's just an MDF version of terrain GW innovated over 20 years ago.

    Yeah those designs are incredibly simplistic. With so many companies doing amazing things with MDF these days, those pieces are a real hard sell, almost looks like they were knocked up by a guy in his weekend.

    Thanks for your comments. This range is designed for the gamer on a budget who wants to add a lot of terrain to their gaming tables. We have purposely chosen to keep the pieces simple, as we feel this allows the best value for money for our customers and flexibility in use between game systems. Keeping the range simple allows us to keep our production costs low and pass that saving on to you, and your fellow wargamers, at affordable prices without compromising on the quality. If we were to create highly details and complex designs, the cost of each item in the range would be greater.

    Spoiler:


    Regarding the concern that the designs are similar to others, all of the items in the Complex Red range were developed from designs by Red Beam developed quite some time ago. It's likely that these items show superficial similarities as they share the same source of inspiration - science fiction skirmish games from the past few decades.

    Some men and women earn their own legends and, in this month's releases for Wild West Exodus, this statement has never been truer.



    'Wild’ Bill Hickok, the charming storyteller extraordinaire, is now available with the rest of his Ranger Showboat Posse! Like so many of his ilk, Hickok fell into the role of Lawman without intending to, becoming a true Ranger and master of the rifle and pistols. Over his years out west, Hickok has taken others under his wing, training them in the arts of wilderness living and tracking - find Grace Myrtle, and all those who form his legendary Ranger Showboat, on pre-order today.

    Countess Augusta Byron barely needs an introduction, her towering and memorable presence overshadows us all. Even amongst her fellow Enlightened Peers, the Countess is looked upon with a peculiar blend of awe and fear, having improved herself to such a length that no-one can recall how she once looked. The Countess and her fearless army of Creations can be found in the new Galvanic Mysteries Posse Box.

    Alongside these brand new posse boxes for Lawmen and Enlightened factions, we also have the Weylyn Spirit Walkers for the Warrior Nation - these wolf-kin are sure to sow dread and terror in the hearts of their enemies!

    Are you building your own Red Oak town for your tabletop? Make sure to get your very own Red Oak Saloon! After all, where else are you going to find a place to conduct dodgy deals and grab a drink (or three)?

    All of this month's pre-orders are released on September 29th - make sure to pre-order from us, or your FLGS, to stay current with Wild West Exodus.

    As always, make sure to check the whole of this months pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of our new Wild West Exodus products.



    GALVANIC MYSTERIES POSSE



    One could be forgiven for taking Countess Augusta Byron’s perpetual air of melancholy as a symptom of her upbringing. After all, when one is raised around some of the most emotive and creative minds of their time, it is surely impossible not to absorb some of that need to create. All artists crave the perfect result, whether it be a musical composition that can reduce men to tears, or a painting so beautiful that not a single soul can step past without pausing to enjoy its beauty. The Augusta’s canvas is infinitely more complex. Her magnum opus is herself. If she shows an interest in a particular individual’s face or admires the length of their legs, that person is likely to witness firsthand her inconceivable feats of fleshcrafting. The Countess has improved upon her own person over the years until nobody – herself included – can even recall how she once looked. Presently, Augusta towers above the average woman, at seven feet in height, and although it could be argued that her entire body is nothing more than a patchwork, a mish-mash of disparate parts, it cannot be denied that the whole is striking and certainly memorable.

    The New York Tribune recently published an article cautioning the use of advanced technology as it may “corrupt the moral fibre of our society.” Should the experiments conducted by Countess Augusta Byron be made common knowledge there would surely be an outcry amongst those of a sensitive and civilised disposition. Even amongst her fellow Enlightened Peers, the Countess is looked upon with a peculiar blend of awe and fear. A pioneer in galvanism, the Countess often applies that peculiar science into forming reanimated Creations - a blend of flesh, steel and lightning that creates a creature many times greater than the sum of its parts. The Countess has been know to cosset her ‘children’, always seeking new and better methods for improving them and granting them longevity. With such a fearless army at her command and with the capacity to make as many as needed, she is a force to be reckoned with.

    The Galvanic Mysteries Posse contains five multi-part resin miniatures:
    1x Augusta Byron
    1x Mantis
    1x Creation V
    1x Creation X
    1x Creation XIII
    5x Bases
    9x Unit Information & Character Unit Cards

    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are included and can also be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £35




    RANGER SHOWBOAT POSSE




    Some men earn their legends. Others contribute to the legends of others. Some, like the Marshal known as ‘Wild’ Bill Hickok simply make their own legends up and recount them for anybody who will spare the time to listen. Hickok is a charmer; a storyteller extraordinaire and a man well versed in what the renowned showman P T Barnum would call ‘the noble art of humbug’. He knows well the magic a good yarn can bring to others, having spent some considerable time with a travelling show in his younger years. His marksmanship skills were as sharp then as they are now and many a contented visitor would leave the show that night swearing that they truly had seen the greatest gunman on Earth.

    For all his dramatic tendencies and his overblown, often hugely exaggerated tales, Hickok is a canny, shrewd soul. Like so many of his ilk, he fell into the role of Lawman without intending to. When he first came out west, he did so with the intention of setting up a travelling show of his own, perhaps bringing entertainment to what he perceived as the poverty-stricken settlers of the frontier. Instead of the struggling little shanty towns he envisioned, he found flourishing settlements, rich with prospects, loaded with opportunity and marred by those who operated outside the law. Along with his friend and fellow former showman, Bill Cody, he excelled in the field of scouting and reconnaissance. As a young ranger, he discovered a love for this unexpected new career and when Cody headed back east, Hickok remained, eager to keep his skills as one of the newly-named Rangers sharp and focused. He grew strong and powerful, mastering the use of a rifle as well as his pistols.

    As the years passed, Hickok took others under his wing, training them in the arts of wilderness living and tracking. One young woman in particular – Grace Myrtle – has grown to be every bit his equal in skill and is in possession of a personality as big as his own. They have become confidantes, even good friends and he values her opinion more than he’d ever openly admitted.

    The stories of his own greatness that he told in his youth have long been forgotten, replaced with stories that are every bit as true as he tells them… mostly, anyway. Alongside Myrtle, Hickok continues to thrill his allies and enemies in equal measure bringing justice to those that need it most. Often Bill will find his paths cross with the mercenary Copelie Sisters, the dutiful Nate Berenger and the drunken but dependable Calamity Jane and together they form Bill’s legendary Ranger Showboat. Even with a job to do, Hickok is still fond of exaggerating and as long as he has a glass of whisky, a comfortable seat and a willing audience, he will still wheel out the showman of old and entertain a crowd with the wild tales of Wild Bill.

    The Ranger Showboat Posse contains six multi-part resin miniatures:
    1x Wild Bill Hickok
    1x Grace Myrtle
    1x Nate Berenger
    1x Calamity Jane
    1x Missy Copelie
    1x Rebecca Copelie
    6x Bases
    9x Unit Information & Character Unit Cards

    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £35




    RED OAK SALOON SCENERY KIT




    No town in the Frontier is complete without a Saloon. More than just a place to grab a drink or rest your heels for a few hours, a saloon is a place where dodgy deals and even dodgier dealers can be found in ample supply. If you need to find yourself trouble or a troubleshooter, it's a safe bet that both will come through the Saloon eventually.

    This Wild West Exodus Scenery kit contains:
    1x Red Oak Saloon Building
    Assembly Instructions

    Please note:
    Scenery items are manufactured in Medium Density Fibre Board (MDF).
    Buildings are supplied primed and some assembly will be required.

    Price: £30




    WEYLYN SPIRIT WALKERS




    Weylyn Spirit Walkers are brave men and women of the Warrior Nation who are able to connect with their guiding animal spirit, in this case, that of a wolf, and imbue their form with aspects of that noble beast. Often serving as shock troops for the Warrior Nation, these wolf-kin sow dread and terror amid the ranks of their enemies.

    The Weylyn Spirit Walkers kit contains two multi-part resin miniatures:
    2x Weylyn Spirit Walkers
    2x Bases

    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £15



    All of the items in this announcement are available to pre-order now from your FLGS. Due for release on September 29th.

    What do you think of the new posse sets?

    Are you going to get yourself a Red Oak Saloon scenery kit?

    Thanks for your comments. This range is designed for the gamer on a budget who wants to add a lot of terrain to their gaming tables. We have purposely chosen to keep the pieces simple, as we feel this allows the best value for money for our customers and flexibility in use between game systems. Keeping the range simple allows us to keep our production costs low and pass that saving on to you, and your fellow wargamers, at affordable prices without compromising on the quality. If we were to create highly details and complex designs, the cost of each item in the range would be greater.



    The thing is, is that most the cost is in the amount of MDF used, sure some more complex linework might have a small impact on creation time, but it really depends on how it's done. Those designs could be significantly improved without adding anything more in terms of raw materials by putting a bit more effort in at the design stage.

    I didn't mean to imply that you'd stolen the design, I meant to imply that your using a design so astoundingly similar to a set that has been done multiple times by multiple companies over the course of decades, and is still regularly available from some of them, comes across as very lazy and unexciting.

    That's a little harsh. The designs are basic, but so is every grass/street/desert gaming mat released. There's certainly a place for starter terrain. Where I think they missed is in the price, as the Wild West Exodus range has a lot more detail for only a small amount more. I believe TTCombat is also cheaper for similar items and has more detail as well. Maybe these structures are way bigger than I think or something?

    With the 10th anniversary of Wayland Games Ltd approaching, Warcradle Studios (the publishing and manufacturing arm of Wayland) were tasked to create a brand new miniature for Wild West Exodus to celebrate this epic occasion.

    Never ones to shy from an opportunity, the Studio team swept into action to design something very special indeed… We present you with a brand new strategic unit for Wild West Exodus: Wayland the Smith (and Beck too, of course)!





    Wayland the Smith - 10th Anniversary Set

    Many a fireside tale includes the appearance of Wayland the Smith. Often such stories feature a desperate and lonely rider who suffers a malfunction with her Iron Horse or the machinery of a struggling mine fails and the town faces ruin. Wanting no reward, save for a silver dollar if it can be spared, this man of legend appears from the horizon and fixes the problem. Before more than a thank you can be uttered, the stoic giant is on his way again, never staying in the same place for more than a night once his work is done. Wayland is an impressively large man with a strength as formidable as the steel with which he plies his trade. Often he lends a hand along with Panday Beck, his erstwhile assistant, who is seldom far from his side. What the fates have in store for Wayland as he roams the Frontier, who can say? Certainly, while Wayland doesn’t go looking for trouble, his journey has taken him to some of the highest and lowest of company. Even the alien Watchers and scheming Hex and Order have had reason to be thankful for his intervention and assistance. Quite how this mysterious wanderer can aid such wildly differing factions is but one further mystery that adds to his legend.

    Wayland the Smith - 10th Anniversary Set contains two multi-part resin miniatures:
  • 1x Wayland the Smith

  • 1x Beck

  • 2x Bases.


  • Price: £20.00

    Product link: https://store.wildwestexodus.com/factions/55677-wayland-the-smith-10th-anniversary-set

    Wayland the Smith is available to pre-order from your FLGS and Wayland Games from Today!

    How big are these gentlemen supposed to be?

    The renders make me think they'd be on the medium bases as opposed to the typical small ones used for regular humans, but that may just be the proportions of the renders playing tricks on me.

    Definitely fun sculpts!

    They're both on medium bases (roughly 40mm, but WWX has their unique base sizes). Stat cards are here

    Items in the Warcradle Classics range are reliant on the health of old masters and moulds; there is a limit to the number that can be produced. We will keep producing the classic miniatures for as long as the old moulds and masters allow..

    THE CONQUISTADORES POSSE






    Of all the outlaws operating on the Union Frontier, the story of Juan Ponce de Leon and his Conquistadores is by far the most incredible. Ponce de Leon is a nobleman with a delusional mind. Having emerged from the Florida coast with claims that he is the very same man who set out in search of the Fountain of Youth nearly three hundred years ago, he believes that he and his Conquistadores have been granted eternal life and, with them, he now explores this new world like a travelling lord. Along the way, he has broken countless laws and found himself righting wrongs where he finds them - upholding his view of justice where he can.
    The Conquistadores Posse contains 4 multi-part resin miniatures and 2 multi-part plastic miniatures;
    1x Juan Ponce de Leon
    1x Ines Suarez
    1x Amadeo Savoia
    1x Juan Nuevopuerto
    1x Brothers Pizarro
    1x Esteban el Bruto
    6x Bases
    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.
    Price: £38

    FAITHFUL OF CASTILLA POSSE




    Emerging from the Mexican hinterland with her posse of armoured Conquistadors, Madre Monica Perez is a woman of deep faith. Like Ponce de Leon, she claims to who have set out in search of the Fountain of Youth nearly three hundred years earlier. Whether one believes these claims or not, the Faithful of Castilla are fanatically loyal to her and make for a lethal retinue. While many see the Blackhoof as an obsolete mode of transport, the Faithful have proven adept in the saddle of these temperamental automa. Together with their mechanical steeds, the Faithful of Castilla are the self-appointed defenders of the oppressed. Such a defence often brings Madre Perez and her posse to the thickest of the fighting in the Badlands.
    The Faithful of Castilla Posse contains 4 multi-part resin miniatures;
    1x Madre Monica Perez
    1x Patricia Monaguillo
    1x Ricardo Fortuna
    1x Eduard Costa
    4x Bases
    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.
    Price: £38


    FORLORN HOPE POSSE





    If a man is defined by his actions, then Custer is the epitome of all that young men and women strive to become. Fearless. Generous of nature. Brilliant. Dashing. Impetuous. Dangerous. Possibly even just a little unhinged. The realisation of this fact comes too late, usually at the moment the enemy’s gun barrel is pointed squarely at them.
    Armstrong Custer was born into a world that needed a man of his calibre, a chance or quirk of Fate that made sure he was there when the Union needed him most. And yet, despite what some consider the exterior of a braggadocio, he remains staunchly humble and refuses to accept praise, instead deferring to those men and women serving under his command. He rose through the Union ranks swiftly, demonstrating an ability to follow and lead with equal enthusiasm. His inherently likeable nature coupled with one of the most brilliant strategic minds ever seen ensured that he accelerated through to the rank of General as fast as he could stitch his stripes onto his uniform. He is a force of nature: an inspirational and highly motivational speaker who can inject morale into the weariest unit.
    Something of a traditionalist, Custer leads the charge – and he will always lead the charge - primarily armed with his well-honed and always razor-sharp sabre. But he is not adverse to unloading both of his blaster pistols when a challenge presents itself. And Armstrong Custer never refuses a challenge!
    The Forlorn Hope Posse contains 1 multi-part resin miniatures and 20 multi-part plastic miniatures;
    1x Armstrong Custer
    5x Union Armoured Riflemen
    5x Union Armoured Guard
    5x Union Riflemen
    5x Union Skirmishers
    21x Bases
    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.
    Price: £38

    CONFEDERATE BLACKHOOF SCOUTS






    The Confederate Rebellion, such as it is, lacks many of the resources even settlers in the Frontier take for granted. Driven into the bayous and wilderness by the Union’s occupation of the Southern states, the Rebellion must avoid all but the smallest of hamlets; lacking the funds to take advantage of even the most sympathetic of suppliers. As such, heavy vehicles are few and far between to aid their cause. For mobility's sake, those few rebels that do need a mount make do with the temperamental and almost obsolete Blackhoof. Over the years rider and mount have formed a bond as strong as between any partners in strife. These mechanical horse automata have proven to be well suited to the dense terrain the rebels operate in and are far quieter than any Iron Horse or Interceptor.
    The Confederate Blackhoof Scouts set contains 2 multi-part resin miniatures;
    2x Confederate Blackhoof Scouts
    2x Bases
    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.
    Price: £18

    WENDIGO




    The Wendigo are the lore keepers of a world long since past. They are part of an exotic and ancient breed of creatures known collectively as the Carcosa. Their mythology speaks of the Carcosa being the true inheritors of the Earth, the first people created by the Great Spirit in ages past. But, so the story goes, the Great Spirit was ashamed by the Carcosa's bestial nature and abandoned them in favour of creating a more perfect inheritor, the mewling and myriad humanity. Competing for resources in those early days, the human usurpers hunted the Carcosa almost to extinction. Now their kind has been reduced to a mere handful scattered across the world and so the Wendigo and their Carcosa kin have allied themselves to the Hex. The Wendigo now use their tales of betrayal and abandonment to fuel the telling of a final story for the Carcosa - a tale of revenge and retribution on humanity.
    This product contains
    1x Wendigo
    1x Base
    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.
    Price: £25

    So wait, I'm a bit confused.

    Is the latest edition of Dystopian Wars gonna be a reboot of some kind? I only just learned yesterday that Spartan Games closed down and sold off their IPs to Warcradle Studios.

    Can someone give me a rundown of all the important announcements/changes regarding the Third Edition of Dystopian Wars? (Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask that question.)

    They are currently doing small print runs as they sort through the moulds they go and test them out; but they are only small scale production runs and not looking to go long term - its mostly to test the moulds and see which ones work and which don't (as the company went into administration, when WC got what they bought it was shipped to them in a general mess of stuff just dumped on pallets, plus other issues - it was not a smooth transition which is why its been off sale for a while as WC rebuild and rebrand it).


    They've already got some material out there showing some early ships - Prussians (as an example) are shifting a bit and their newer ships have a modular design whereby they have train tracks on the ship and shunt the weapons they want into the ship for the battle. On the bigger ships they even carry their own steam trains so that they can always be ready to swap over weapons at any compatible Prussian port.

    The biggest chance is that the land component has changed scale (which isn't coming till later) so they are fully splitting the sea and land elements of the game apart.

    Thanks for the links mate. Just have a few questions regarding factions. So in regards to the Russian Commonwealth and the Celestial Empire, are these two factions one nation under one government? Or could you play as just one of the countries listed in each "faction" category? Say I wanted to play the Ottoman Sultanate, could I choose to play as just Egypt or do I have to play as Egypt, Greece and Turkey all at once?

    Since Wild West Exodus seems to be set around the American Civil War, is the Confederacy playable in any sort of capacity or not?

    Yeppers! In general, you can run them under Outlaws, but Annabelle Hamilton can also be run under Enlightned with her Dixie Resurrection crew. Their faction cards are linked below.

    https://www.wildwestexodus.com/factions/confederates

    not sure if they'll turn up in Dystopian Wars. I think the war was ongoing in that setting, but in the Wild West Exodus, the Confederacy lost the war, but exists as kind of an insurgency. The Union is too preoccupied with dealing with the Warrior Nation and the Enlightened to fully control the south.

    Let’s start off by introducing Legendary Jedrick Powell & 20-20, shall we?

    Unique in the Frontier, 20-20 is a relic of the closing days of the Ore War, a Blackhoof automata transformed into a one of a kind prototype only accepting of one rider. Blackhoof 20-20 and his good friend Jedrick set out together to bring sweet justice upon all lawbreakers.

    This dynamite duo is now available to pre-order alongside a remastered Legendary Wyatt Earp for Lawmen, Legendary Raven Spirit for Warrior Nation and Legendary Abraham Lincoln for the Union.
    There are few new sets of armoured soldiers in town too; The Cor Caroli Luminant equipped with powerful weapons, UR-31 G.I. Bots built for open combat deployment, and a set of Watcher Virdian Locust/Chigoe that can be deployed as either airborne Virdian Chigoe assault units or fire support Virdian Locust are all available to pre-order from today.

    And finally, the Red Oak Cat House is open for business! A place where all needs are met, all desires sated and all currencies taken - there’s never a dull moment beneath its roof. Often those drinking in the Red Oak Saloon find themselves heading to the Cat House for a place to lay their hat.

    All of this month's pre-orders are set to be released on November 24th with the exception of Legendary Jedrick Powell & 20-20 who will be released on the 22nd December.

    These items are available to pre-order from us, or your FLGS, and as always, be sure to check out all of this months pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of our new Wild West Exodus products.


    Heading to Spiel ‘18? Don’t forget to pop over to Hall 6 Booth 6I102 and check out the demo team and tables. We have plenty of miniatures to purchase including Nakano Gozen - Emissary of the Blazing Sun, our promotional miniature for 2018. She’s available to purchase from our booth (6I102) at Spiel and online during the event for £13.00.
    You can purchase her from the Wild West Exodus online store until 21:00 October 28th and then her next appearance online will be during PAX Unplugged at the end of November!

    Nakano Gozen is our promotional miniature until 2019 when she will become part of our regular catalogue of fantastic miniatures - available to all!


    Legendary Jedrick Powell and 20/20



    Unique in the Frontier, 20-20 is a relic of the closing days of the Ore War, a Blackhoof automata transformed into a one of a kind prototype. As a new weapon for a battle that never came, 20-20 has many of the capabilities of a trained sniper as well as the ability to morph into two different modes. The first is as a Vitruvian Simulacra - a humanoid machine armed with a deadly Hyper-V rifle. The second form is his original configuration as a Blackhoof steed. While in that form, 20-20 will accept only one rider, his good friend Jedrick Powell, who takes up the rifle and together they bring sweet justice upon all lawbreakers.
    The Legendary Jedrick Powell & Blackhoof 20-20 kit builds one multi-part resin miniature;

    Price: £23

    Legendary Wyatt Earp



    Wyatt Earp, High Marshal of the Arizona Territories, is an imposing man. Well over six feet in height, with what could best be called an 'intimidating' presence, he is taciturn and hard to extract information from. When he gives up his words, he is startlingly eloquent and his belief in dispensing justice is without question.
    Wyatt Earp has made it his duty to serve and protect the people of the Union of Federated States from threats that might intrude upon their daily lives. Laudable though this goal may be, it has nonetheless earned Earp few friends and countless more enemies. His immediate family has suffered numerous personal tragedies at the hands of the lawless. Only his closest friends are able to permeate the iron-clad demeanour he maintains and there are but few who can offer support and succour to the undoubtedly lonely man that must lie within the legend.
    Wyatt Earp continues to heft his trusty shotgun whilst striding out to the clink of spurs, ready to dispense justice. He is rightly feared by those he faces in the city of Tombstone, or further afield because he brings hell with him.
    The Legendary Wyatt Earp kit builds one multi-part resin miniature;
    1x Legendary Wyatt Earp
    2x Head options
    1x Base
    Please note:

    Legendary Raven Spirit


    .
    It was not until the last winter before the Union drove out the Crown from the Americas that the true scope of his bond with the spirits was revealed. His braves had been slaughtered in an ambush by Continental Marines. Wounded, barely able to raise his weapon, Raven Spirit - by now a Warrior Nation chief - raised his head to the sky and let out the keening cry that was the raven's own. When the spirit of an ancient warrior, many centuries dead, coalesced in shimmering blue spirit fire around the young chief - this was startling enough. When that Summoning also unleashed a plume of all-consuming spiritual fire that obliterated the terrified attackers, Raven Spirit fell into a deep trance.
    Marked by intense visions of the Great Spirit, Raven Spirit emerged from his meditation with the dawn and brought with him a new vision for his people. Abandoning the ways of divided tribes and embracing a more ancient path to reunite with the native tribes of humanity across the globe. It was as part of the Warrior Nation that they would save its people from the growing darkness and also extend protection to all the peoples of the Earth.
    Despite doubts and many dangers, Raven Spirit has built alliances towards some Grand Paradigm that only he can truly comprehend. Now nearly a hundred summers old, Raven Spirit leads his people with a benevolent hand, adhering to the guiding light of the Great Spirit infusing him with a vitality that would not seem possible.
    The Legendary Raven Spirit kit builds one multi-part resin miniature;
    1x Legendary Raven Spirit
    1x Base

    Legendary Abe Lincoln



    It became painfully clear to President Lincoln that he was best suited to shepherd his beloved nation back to peace -, but he could not do this from within the White House.
    Using his ever-expanding web of agents to assist him, Lincoln staged his own assassination in 1866. He was then free to assume more direct control of the varied defences of the nation while his vice-president, Andrew Johnson, a capable bureaucrat with little to no imagination or drive, was left as a figurehead to rule in his place.
    Abraham Lincoln was finally free to move out into the wide world in order to lead his extensive army of gifted killers through the shadows, conducting the infinite number of dark and dreadful deeds the times demanded of the nation should she expect to survive. Lincoln knew that there were things the Union Army could not be called upon to do, whether it was investigating dangers to the wounded country, to ferret out plots and schemes that threatened her, or eliminate potential problems before the public could even be aware of them. His Secret Service was essential to the health of the Union.
    The Legendary Abraham Lincoln kit builds one multi-part resin miniature;
    1x Legendary Abraham Lincoln
    1x Base

    Miniature is supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.

    Red Oak Cat House



    While some men and women in the West find satisfaction in a hard day's toil, digging the earth or riding the plains, others find satisfaction in softer more pliant locales. The Cat House in Red Oak is a place where all needs are met, all desires sated and all currencies taken. There is never a dull moment beneath the roof of the Cat House which is still open for business long after the sun has set.
    This Wild West Exodus Scenery kit contains
    1x Red Oak Saloon Building
    1x Alternative side signage
    Assembly Instructions
    Please note:
    Scenery items are manufactured in Medium Density Fibre Board (MDF).
    Buildings are supplied primed and some assembly will be required.
    Price: £30

    UR-31 G.I. Bots



    The G.I. Bot is a military grade version of the UR-31 and shares many features with the Heavy Lawbots of the same mark. Developed by the Union as an iterative improvement on the Enlightened designed UR-30's, the G.I. Bot is built for open combat deployment. Its updated design has led to the inclusion of better armour and a more advanced combat logic engine with many complicated parts and, subsequently, a lower battery life. These changes have necessitated shorter tours of duty yet still ensures that a fully automatic army will elude the Union for years to come. Despite this, the UR-31 G.I. Bot serves in a support capacity with most Armoured Guard regiments. It is a common enough piece of hardware that two dedicated assault platoons have been readied for overseas deployment staffed entirely by these tireless and relentless metal soldiers.
    The UR-31 G.I. Bots kit builds two multi-part resin miniatures;
    2x UR-31 G.I. Bots
    4x Weapon options
    2x Bases
    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.
    Price: £15

    Cor Caroli Luminant



    Even within the highly disciplined and elite Order of the Allshard, the Cor Caroli are a cadre apart. Warrior souls drawn from the allshard to inhabit the bodies of men and women who have been bred and prepared for such a great and glorious purpose. These hosts are then encased in heavy armour and given powerful weapons all designed and built using the technology of The Order. On the field of battle these towering armoured soldiers lay waste to the enemy, ever in search of those tainted by the Hex. They will stop at nothing to ensure such abominations are annihilated.
    The Cor Caroli Luminant kit builds three multi-part resin miniatures;
    3x Cor Caroli Luminant
    3x Bases
    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.
    Price: £18




    The Viridian play an important role in the Watchers. Deployed as airborne Chigoe assault units or as fire support Locust teams, the Viridian excel at targeted strikes. To assist in these roles, the Hegemony has enhanced the species natural chitin into armoured plates that provide a degree of protection against small arms fire and bladed weapons.
    The Viridian Locusts / Chigoe kit builds three multi-part plastic miniatures and includes enough options to enable any of the three miniatures to be built as either a Viridian Chigoe or a Viridian Locust.
    3x Viridian Locusts / Chigoe
    3x Bases
    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.

    I hope the balconies on the cat house are wide enough to support figures standing on them.

    One of my biggest gripes with other companies is not making their ledges and walkways have enough space for figures to stand on.

    That hasn't been an issue I've seen with the Red Oak line yet though. Been pretty please with all my buildings so far.

    "You'd better watch out, you'd better be tough... or the Krampus will carry you off"



    Children all along the Frontier are used to hearing about Krampus from their parents - and their elder siblings too, of course!

    Let’s hope Krampus Rex isn’t visiting YOU this year…

    Available only during December, you can take comfort that you aren't in the iron pot he carries on his back - which is just about large enough to hold one small naughty child, ready to be whisked off to who knows where...






    Krampus Rex is a special edition miniature from Warcradle Studios, for this festive period, and can be used as an alternative sculpt of Carcosa Rex in games of Wild West Exodus.



    The Krampus Rex kit builds one multi-part resin miniature;

    1 x Krampus Rex
    1 x Base.




    Who’s this coming down the chimney? Last year’s seasonal miniature, of course! Kyle the Red & White and 'Max' (a particularly quirky K9 Attack Dog) are resin miniatures and come complete with a large plinth base to display them on.



    For those that wish to use them in a game of Wild West Exodus, they could be taken as an alternate miniature for Kyle the Black and a K9 Attack Dog.

    We're including the additional bases needed for them to be fielded separately just in case players want to do just that!

    This product contains:
    1 x Kyle The Red & White Miniature
    1 x "Max" The Attack Dog Miniature
    3 x Bases.

    We’ve been quiet for a while… but we’ve been busy behind the scenes with Warcradle Classics and have many of your favourite miniatures either available or on their way very soon!

    We have already released a variety of miniatures as part of the Warcradle Classics brand, including many units for Dystopian Wars and Wild West Exodus, and we’re pleased to let you know that we will be continuing to build on this range as we add MORE Dystopian Wars, MORE Wild West Exodus and… drum roll, please… Firestorm Armada miniatures to our catalogue.

    Remember, the Warcradle Classics range is being produced in limited numbers so, if you’re after something in particular, do check on the Wayland Games website (and at your local FLGS) regularly so you don't miss out on that certain something.

    Looking at getting some of the FA models but cant find how big they are, is there a size guide anywhere? It seems pretty daft to just list a scale (1/10000) for something that is fictional.

    I just pulled out my "Battle for Valhalla" box and did some measuring. The frigates are about 50mm, the cruisers are 80-100mm, and the battleships are about 150mm. I hope that helps out some.

    Christmas may be just around the corner but, more importantly, you can pre-order new Wild West Exodus miniatures from today! With a wide selection, from a variety of factions, you’re sure to find something to add to your posse…


    Now, where to start? With Legendary Elita Nura, of course!

    After years of service in the field at the rank of Mimreg, Elita Nura’s fervent desire to serve the Order more fully was recognised by the Allshard. Fully aware of what Apotheosis to a Cor Caroli entails, Elita Nura desired her chance to join their ranks. Despite this, Nura was made a Sircan and given command of the Spica Astraea - the Portal Vanguard.

    You can pre-order this fantastic legendary miniature alongside other Order reinforcements; the Cor Caroli Nyx and, masters in their fields, Zain & Oron!

    Not an Order player? No problem!

    You can reinforce your posse with Spirit Walker Legendary Raging Bear for Warrior Nation, red in tooth and claw, or maybe the excellent (and impartial) representatives of justice UR-30 Lawbots are more up your alley? These, alongside, Lokess for the Hex and Grey with Specialist Weapons for the Watchers, are all on pre-order now.

    And, finally, we have the Wild West Exodus Token Set, available to pre-order from today! This great little token set allows you to upgrade your games of Wild West Exodus and includes all the core condition tokens plus ‘Activated’, ‘Re-animated’, and ‘Quick and the Dead’ tokens in high-quality 2-ply acrylic.

    All of this month's pre-orders are set to be released on January 26th.

    These items are available to pre-order from us, or your FLGS and, as always, be sure to check out all of this month’s pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of our new Wild West Exodus products.


    LEGENDARY ELITA NURA



    Within the Council she is considered a fractious zealot, a vocal challenger to the conservative doctrine espoused by High Sircan Abner. Unlike Abner, Nura believes that the last battle against the Hex fast approaches so she pushes for Phase Five of the Crusade to be enacted. As such, Nura's voice is the most extreme within the Order as she seeks to provoke a suitably devastating encounter with the Hex that would justify the declaration of Phase Five and all-out war.

    When in the field acting as the Allshard's instrument she is equally impatient to bring about the unveiling of the Order's true mission. This reveals itself as a disdain for the use of subterfuge and stealth, instead portal jumping into combat directly and taking her foe unawares with the precise application of overwhelming force against those tainted by the Hex. Whether such taint comes from absorption of its essence or simply through being manipulated by the Dark Council, she cares not. The seismic powers of her Luminant Staff are more than capable of eliminating either type of foe. Let the Allshard sort them out.

    The Legendary Elita Nura kit builds one multi-part resin miniature:

    1 x Legendary Elita Nura Miniature

    1 x Base.

    Please note:

    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.

    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £17

    COR CAROLI NYX



    Even within the highly disciplined and elite Order of the Allshard, the Cor Caroli are a cadre apart. These are the combination of warrior souls drawn from the Allshard to inhabit the bodies of men and women who have been prepared for such a great and glorious purpose. The Nyx Cadres are encased in heavy armour and wielding powerful relic weapons known as Shrike Rifles. These towering armoured soldiers lay waste to the enemy, ever in search of those tainted by the Hex. They will stop at nothing to ensure such abominations are annihilated.

    The Cor Caroli Nyx kit builds three multi-part resin miniatures:

    3 x Cor Caroli Nyx

    3 x Bases.

    Please note:

    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.

    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £18

    ZAIN & ORON



    Even among the elite ranks of the Cor Caroli come individuals rise to the top. Zain and Oron are peerless masters in their own fields and have proven themselves on countless battlefields upon countless worlds, ever in pursuit of those tainted by the Hex and unforgiving of any that stand in their way.

    Some weapons are too heavy even for the Cor Caroli to wield and Oron is one of the few capable of wielding the Master Shrike Rifle with deadly effect. He holds the rank of Altcap and leads from the front, laying down a withering hail of fire against enemies of the Allshard.

    The Luminent Kopesh is less of a weapon and more an instrument of slaughter in the hands of Altcap Zain. Once he has closed with the enemy, few can stand against his prowess in close combat as strike after strike lands against his enemies defences.

    The Zain & Oron kit builds two multi-part resin miniatures:

    1 x Zain

    1 x Oron

    2 x Bases.

    Please note:

    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.

    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £15

    LEGENDARY RAGING BEAR



    A solitary soul, Raging Bear stands apart from the other Spirit Walkers. While others return to their human form once the bloody day is done, Raging Bear does not. Some unspeakable shame in his past makes returning to his life as a man unthinkable. Even the all-knowing Raven Spirit will not address the reasons for this isolation directly, only that the burden of his deeds as a beast cannot be borne in the soul of a man. And so it is that, when needed, Raging Bear can be found far from the settlements of the Warrior Nation. The call of the Great Spirit draws him back to his people when needed the most. In battle, he leads other Spirit Walkers and bloodthirsty warriors by example; red in tooth and claw.

    The Legendary Raging Bear kit builds one multi-part resin miniature:

    1x Legendary Raging Bear

    1x Base

    Please note:

    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.

    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £23

    UR-30 LAWBOTS



    The West is a dangerous place, the thin blue line of the Lawmen is stretched ever thinner by the fear of reprisals making many unwilling to step forward and take the tin star. In the years that followed the Ore War, there were hundreds of UR-30 Automen destined for alternative employment in power stations and other dangerous roles. It was Marshal Mariano Barela who first deployed UR-30’s as so-called ‘lawbots’. Successful in a limited fashion, they were given a tin star, a brace of pistols and sanctioned for deployment to the care of marshals and sheriffs all across the Union. These Vitruvian Simulacra might lack the emotion and instinct of the flesh and blood deputies, but they know the law and that alone makes them excellent (and impartial) representatives of justice. Of course, having a metal skull and spinal column is extremely handy in an occupation where being shot at or having chairs broken over your head is commonplace.

    The UR-30 Lawbots kit builds three multi-part resin miniatures:

    3 x UR-30 Lawbot Miniatures

    3 x Bases.

    Please note:

    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.

    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £15

    LOKESS



    Once roused to anger Lokess is a force of nature and terrifying to behold. Of all the remaining Carcosa, injury and a thirst for vengeance has led Lokess to embrace the technology and gifts of the Hex. With implants and augmentations, she couples these with her sheer size to carry the devastating Ursun Repeater and wield it as if it were a simple six-shooter.

    Lokess feels that she should be the right hand of Carcosa Rex. Unwilling to put aside her petty jealousies and rivalries with Makulus and Tok, she has forced Rex to choose Hanuma as his lieutenant instead. Lokess will force a rebalance of this injustice through the only means she knows how. Rex will die by her hand, but only when the time is right.

    The Lokess kit builds one multi-part resin miniature:

    1 x Lokess

    1 x Base.

    Please note:

    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.

    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £18

    GREY WITH SPECIALIST WEAPONS



    All species within the Watcher Hegemony have their role to play. The Watchers are all too aware of the pitfalls of over specialising. They have not endured for centuries by being inflexible in this manner and so have an entire species, the Grey, who specialise in… not specialising!

    The Grey are bred as foot soldiers, labourers, architects, engineers, spies, diplomats and scientists - whatever the Watchers need them to be. When circumstance causes the Watchers a need to rely on the Grey for military operations, they are birthed from gestation vats aboard their Arkvault or base of operations with Vermillion or Onyx traits spliced into their genome. This additional genetic material allows them to utilise a wide variety of sophisticated and deadly weapons. These Grey are deployed in support of their more lightly armed kin and can coordinate with Grey Elites or even Viridian commanders to bring about victory for the Watchers.

    The Grey with Specialist Weapons kit builds two multi-part resin miniatures:

    2 x Grey with Specialist Weapon

    2 x Bases.

    Please note:

    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.

    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £15

    TOKEN SET




    Upgrade your games of Wild West Exodus with this set of Acrylic Tokens. This set includes all the core condition tokens plus ‘Activated’, ‘Re-animated’, and ‘Quick and the Dead’ tokens in high-quality 2-ply acrylic.

    The Wild West Exodus Token Set contains:

    6 x Hazard Tokens

    6 x Hunkered Tokens

    6 x Disordered Tokens

    6 x On the Lookout Tokens

    6 x Activated Tokens

    6 x Re-animated Tokens

    6 x Quick and the Dead tokens.

    Please note:

    Tokens are manufactured in coloured acrylic.

    Price: £6

    As 2019 is now in full swing, let’s introduce February’s pre-orders!



    It’s time to become legendary with next month’s releases for Wild West Exodus. If you’re a player of Hex, Enlightened, or Watchers you’ll be able to add new and improved legendary sculpts to your posses.

    We’re sure Warrior Nation players have a lot to celebrate… Hour of the Wolf is the second posse set for this beloved faction and is out to pre-order now! Get hold of yours and put Ghost Wolf, alongside Hawkeye, Moonswift, and Weylyn Walkers to the test on your tabletop.

    All of this month's pre-orders are set to be released on February 23rd.

    These items are available to pre-order from us, or your FLGS, and as always, be sure to check out all of this month’s pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of our new Wild West Exodus products.


    HOUR OF THE WOLF POSSE




    Though a powerful Spirit Walker, Ghost Wolf often remains in his mortal form as the Warrior Nation has a great need for his leadership and tactical mind. The wolf within him calls to his kin and often he is always accompanied by a number of his brother wolves. These hunting wolves have been blessed by the Great Spirit to be larger and stronger than their kin as well as possessing more intelligence. They are as fast as the wind and their powerful jaws are potent allies. When they attack in a pack there is little that can stand against them. The wolf spirit ensures he is often accompanied by those Spirit Walkers of the Weylyn who can embrace the animal spirit and aid their chieftain.

    Ghost Wolf can always rely on the support of Hawkeye and Moonswift, two experienced warriors who are carving out their own legend within the Nation. Hawkeye is second to none with a bow, capable of hitting the eye of a running hare. With a kinship that approaches family, Moonswift is almost as fast as her Hunting Wolf brothers and sisters. Adept at channelling spirit energy, Moonswift is able to leap over her enemies and bury an axe in an exposed flank.

    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £35.00




    LEGENDARY IRONTOOTH




    Irontooth is the youngest of the Warrior Nation's leaders and a man who has grown up within the new society forged by Raven Spirit rather than the old divided tribes that preceded it. From an early age, Irontooth showed great skill and power in the ways of the Great Spirit and he soon took his own path to become a Spirit Priest. This was short lived as only weeks into his training his people were butchered by an interloping Union patrol. Instinct took over and he embraced his Spirit Guide: the Mountain Lion. Irontooth ‘awoke’ to find he was a Spirit Walker and like the lion in his vision, he was soon stalking his enemies, his teeth sinking into flesh and talons ripping his foes open as they fled screaming into the night. While the transformation from man into Spirit Walker is usually achieved only through a long and intense ritual, this change had occurred spontaneously. This gift has even raised an eyebrow from Raven Spirit when he heard tell of it.

    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £16.00




    LEGENDARY GUSTAVE EIFFEL




    Over recent years, the field of advanced mechanical augmentations has become an obsession for Gustave Eiffel. Building on his original Widower constructs, he now works feverishly pursuing the next great breakthrough in the field.

    Reluctantly tearing himself away from his iron wrought creations, Eiffel enters battle piloting a spider-like combat chassis of his own design. Rumours persist that this is but a prototype for a much larger articulated colossus to rival those of the military powers of the world, a machine to stride across the Union bringing the influence of the Enlightened to every part of the continent, and beyond…

    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £28.00




    LEGENDARY MARIE LAVEAU




    To the world at large, Marie Laveau is Queen of the Bayou and Vodun priestess to all of New Orleans. Believed to be the latest in a long line of women whose lineage stretches back into the mists of time, even in an age of scepticism and science, her powers defy understanding or explanation. Chanting to dark spirits she dances lewdly while waving her fetish staff and seeds the ground with ingredients taken from the pouches hitched to her belt or strapped about her person on leather thongs. In this way is she able to manifest bolts of corrupt energy, control the beasts of the dark places or summon spectral creatures to do her bidding.

    Please note:
    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.
    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £28.00




    LEGENDARY VIRIDIAN ALPHA




    The Viridian Alpha has ultimate responsibility and control over the martial forces of the Hegemony on Earth. This is a role for which he has been created, a process of genetic manipulation that has refined him into a formidable warrior and tactical genius. While he may not have the flexibility and creativity of humans (two of the attributes that have caused the Hegemony to notice Humans in the first place) his understanding of warfare is second to none and while the strikes and feints of the Watchers may seem random they are always part of a larger strategy.

    Please note:

    Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required.

    Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £23.00

    This month brings with it an assortment of legendary miniatures and a brand-new posse! Hour of the Wolf is set to be the second Warrior Nation Posse Set for the Second Edition of Wild West Exodus - and includes everyone’s favourite chieftain; Ghost Wolf.

    Today, we’re taking a closer look at the Hour of the Wolf.

    Who are they?
    The Hour of the Wolf posse is led by the insightful and wise Ghost Wolf. For a character who is fond of storytelling and enjoying the company of his extensive family, he is all too often roused to war where his talents are put to a bloodier purpose.






    Though a powerful Spirit Walker, Ghost Wolf often remains in his mortal form as the Warrior Nation has a great need for his leadership and tactical mind. The wolf within him calls to his kin and often he is always accompanied by a number of his brother wolves. These hunting wolves have been blessed by the Great Spirit to be larger and stronger than their kin as well as possessing more intelligence. They are as fast as the wind and their powerful jaws are potent allies. When they attack in a pack there is little that can stand against them. The wolf spirit ensures he is often accompanied by those Spirit Walkers of the Weylyn who can embrace the animal spirit and aid their chieftain.



    Ghost Wolf can always rely on the support of Hawkeye and Moonswift, two experienced warriors who are carving out their own legend within the Nation. Hawkeye is second to none with a bow, capable of hitting the eye of a running hare. With a kinship that approaches family, Moonswift is almost as fast as her Hunting Wolf brothers and sisters. Adept at channelling spirit energy, Moonswift is able to leap over her enemies and bury an axe in an exposed flank.



    How do they play?
    This Posse likes to get up close and personal. Not only are they good at getting there, all being rather swift of foot, but they can wreak havoc when they do get there. Leveraging Moonswift’s DANCES WITH WOLVES special rule on the Hunting Wolves means they will not only be able to activate via Teamwork but will allow them to Focus their Move and Charge Actions for free. Use all the cover you can and get in quick as, once you are there, these trained warriors will tear your enemies to pieces.

    What an exciting month we have ahead!

    We have the pleasure of releasing two brand new posse sets - one for the Enlightened and the other for the Outlaws, both of which received high praise from the Wild West Exodus community when they were shown as sneak peeks in 2018. For the Enlightened players out there, we have Discordant Symphony which sees Thomas Edeson with his beautifully dangerous Mina, whereas for the Outlaw players we have The Golden Army featuring none-other than Pancho Villa, Heraclio Bernal, Rosaria Mendes and Catalina Romero.

    And that’s not all…

    Alongside the new and improved Order Tumbler for the Order, Warrior Nation players can now add more grey brothers of the mountain, the Hunting Wolves, to their posse - perfect extra support for last month’s release, the Hour of the Wolf posse. PLUS the Spirit Totem set is now available on pre-order too.

    And lastly, but by no means least, you can now pre-order Nakano Gozen! Having played her part as our very special event miniature, the Emissary of the Blazing Sun will be released on March 30th along with the rest of this month’s pre-orders.

    These items are available to pre-order from us, or your FLGS, and as always, be sure to check out all of this month’s pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of our new Wild West Exodus products.



    THE GOLDEN ARMY POSSE



    In his relentless drive north, Pancho Villa has gathered a considerable force behind him and is no longer content to lead from the back. His new followers include the deadly pistolero Heraclio Bernal, known as the Thunderbolt of Sinaloa, The Fearless Desperado Procopio, for whom killing was a pastime, the revolutionist Rosaria Mendes, whose message can be heard far and wide and Catalina Romero, hunter, trapper and crack shot with a rifle.

    Villa has taken up his Gatling gun and stands at the head of what has become known as the Golden Army, as their undisputed patriarch.

    Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £35.00



    DISCORDANT SYMPHONY POSSE



    The inventor Thomas Edeson has a knack of developing technology pioneered by others and refining it as his own. Coupled with a shrewd understanding of the politics within the Enlightened, his place at the heart of Burson Carpathian’s Egalitarian theology is assured.

    His most significant achievement to date has been the development of the Phonic Blaster; a highly versatile weapon capable of rupturing eardrums, skin and also internal organs if the frequency is right. The experimental Aural Projectors he personally wields are even more powerful.

    Dancing was Mina’s passion and as he worked he would often ask her to dance in his workshop in a private performance as his muse. When Mina was struck down by Polio, the science of the Enlightened saved her life, but she was forever mentally and physically debilitated by the disease. Desperate to see his wife smile, Thomas arranged for Gustave Eiffel to create her a new pair of legs and improve her body. The operation was a success and Mina is now more devoted than ever, tirelessly dancing for Edeson as he works long into the night. If Edeson has to travel, Mina usually accompanies him, now his lethal protector as much as a muse…

    Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £35.00



    NAKANO GOZEN



    Nakano Gozen has lived her entire life in service to the Blazing Sun - the Immortal Empress Shinzua. As a direct descendant of the Empress with a startling likeness, Gozen has been trained extensively in both the martial and diplomatic arts. While her adventurous nature made her unsuitable for a role at court, Gozen was trusted instead with a secret mission to the American Frontier.

    As Emissary of the Blazing Sun, Nakano Gozen's mission has brought her into contact with both the Lawmen and Outlaws in the Wild West. While she is treated with suspicion by the authorities, her skill with the blade and silver tongue make her a valued ally to the Outlaws. Her interest in the activities of Doctor Carpathian has not gone unnoticed by the Enlightened or Union agents either...

    Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £13.00



    HUNTING WOLVES



    The moon-howl brothers of the mountains have long been allies to the Warrior Nation. In times of need, whole packs have been known to come to the aid of a beleaguered tribe. Hunting Wolves are extremely fast over open ground and rough terrain alike. Often one wolf will dart in against their prey, usually from behind, and take a swipe while another of the pack does the same. Working together in this way they can take down much larger opponents and once on the ground they go for the throat.

    Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £13.00



    ORDER TUMBLER



    The process of gnosis has allowed the Allshard to impart the designs of many fantastical and arcane technologies to their mortal followers. Such designs are revered as sacred relics, their replication one of careful and unwavering repetition. Though such marvels are limited by the terrestrial materials and processes used to manufacture them, they are still decades beyond even the wildest dreams of the scientists of the Enlightened. The Tumbler is one such relic - a high speed and perfectly self-stabilising monowheel. Piloted by a single Spica, the Tumblers are exceptionally very fast and agile for their size. The twin Sunhammer Cannons pack a punch, searing enemies and melting steel with rapid blasts of super-heated particles.

    Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £20.00



    SPIRIT TOTEMS



    These hand-carved artefacts are a sign of devotion, not only to the spirits of the land but also to the Great Spirit itself. Spirit Totems are placed wherever the Warrior Nation are found, both as markers and as locus to the spirits. Two such totems can be linked through the spirit realm be a shaman or prodigious spirit guide to open a path between those two worlds. It is through these paths that the Warrior Nation can appear wherever they are needed in order to strike at their enemies or withdraw without a trace.

    Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.

    Price: £13.00

    REALLY glad to see those totems get down to a more reasonable price! I'll probably pick up a second set just for basing/terrain bits.

    Now we just need booby traps to not cost $20 for 4 30mm base inserts heh.

    Also liking that the new tumbler is a different sculpt. Does it have various head/weapon options?

    Hey Bossk_Hogg, the miniature comes with one head option (as pictured above with the helmet). Hope this helps. ~Tarnya

    That concept art looks pretty nifty, particularly that big knight dude.

    I'm not too sold on that Polish Hussar woman (who I assume is their first Lost Exodus mini), her bike is rather clunky and under-detailed IMO, but more minis like those concepts and I'm in.

    I have to say when originally announced, the merging of the Dystopian and WWX universe killed any interest I had in either line dead; I like the Victorian Sci-Fi element of Dystopian, and the weird west steampunk of WWX, but I didn't particularly like them combined, since my primary hope was for Dystopian Legions to get reworked into a good game with some actual support.

    But it sounds like this Lost World spin off might see the aesthetic lean just a bit back to what I liked about the Dystopian setting in the first place. Definitely going to keep my eye on it.

    Just like when the mafia enforcer asks you to do something. "Nice business you got here, it'd be a shame if anything were to happen to it." The mafia guy just asked for a favor, but if you don't think there is a consequence for not giving the mafia guy what he asks for, you haven't watched enough movies. Or had the displeasure of working with enough lawyers.

    But let me rephrase since the point was apparently lost on you:
    Warcradle should ask GW to change the name of their WarCry line on the basis of trademark infringement. And then take appropriate legal action if GW doesn't comply.

    Scroll down for some artwork from the coming 35mm game (big looking cog-snake) and also a carrier from Dystopian Wars on show too. All concept art but very very good looking stuff!

    There's also some big banner art and other things to look at!

    I'm liking everything they've shown off!

    As much as I enjoy the weird west stuff, I do like the possibilities of exploring more of the Dystopian Age and seeing more of its inhabitants.

    The Teutonic knight seems quite inspired by the Dystopian Legions designs but with the steampunk bits dialed even higher up.

    So do we still not know if/when Firestorm might be coming back in some capacity? In August it will have been two years since Spartan went belly up. It seems to me that after the two year mark most people will have moved on to something else to fill that gaming niche.

    The last official news was that a Firestorm beta rules release will happen very soon after they wrap up the beta for Dystopian Wars. Dystopian Wars at present seems to be on course for release later this year (I'm guessing Q3 or early Q4). So that puts Firestorm likely off until 2020.


    I think part of the issue is that when spartan went belly up they didn't sell the company and site, just the asests loaded onto pallets by the administrators. So basically WC picked up a lot of stuff, mostly not sorted nor setup and have had to upgrade and extend their own factory to allow them room to actually produce more stuff. I think they've used that time to redesign and at present the space market is still fairly empty - the only other two big names are Starwars (which is pre-painted and sort of in its own world being as its SW) and Dropfleet Commander, which has gone through its own period of dwindling popularity after their KS sort of left them scrabbling and falling apart a bit as well - though they are now owned by TTC and have a new book set to launch this year.

    The only other big name is Battlefleet Gothic, but GW has been really silent on that front and we've no suggestion that if it is comming that its anywhere close to being released.


    I do agree I'd love to see the two core games of Dystopain Wars and Firestorm back on sale - heck when Spartan went belly up I had JUST started building a Dindrenzi fleet and was into their KS campaign. I even had to get paypal to refund me because an order I placed for a load of ships from SG wasn't going to arrive (fair is fair SG did contact/announce that people should seek refunds at that stage). So I am still partly all fired up for railguns!!

    The last official news was that a Firestorm beta rules release will happen very soon after they wrap up the beta for Dystopian Wars. Dystopian Wars at present seems to be on course for release later this year (I'm guessing Q3 or early Q4). So that puts Firestorm likely off until 2020.

    Firestorm was one of the few games where I liked the aesthetic of pretty much every faction, for both space and ground units. I understand Warcradle prioritizing the Dystopian setting due to how it fit with their existing product line, but for me I really can't stand steampunk. So this long period without more info and update after update about stuff I have zero interest in has been frustrating.

    Oh well. Until we get an "It's dead, Jim" post I'll keep my hopes up.

    Dystopian was also Spartan's strongest selling (no idea about Halo though) product for a long while that launched them from small to fairly major league in being known and popular for a while. So yeah it makes sense that that gets the early lions share of attention.

    I have to agree I really liked the fleets for Firestorm as well, though I thought some could have done with more art to show off their weapons as they were not always clear "guns" as such. But yeah they had some really great designers in Spartan Games for models - really creative team putting out very solid designs.

    Let them get this transition stable first. There are significant dangers in trying to expand too quickly into an entirely other game.

    Which was what did Spartan and Hawk Wargames in.

    I like that the crematorium has an interior. Good to see.

    Amber Clade is giving me a bit of an Evil Lynn from the live action MOTU movie vibe.

    Is there a point where we just get a full on He-Man skirmish game? We've already got Trap Jaw and 30-30's progenitor off the top of my head.
    Plus with Bill & Ted coming, it seems like anything is fair game!

    Also, why no steampunk'ed Wyld Stallyns? Of all the silly cross promotional things that exist out there, this is one you guys should get planning on!

    Introducing New Kyoto scenery!
    There’s a new collection joining the Warcradle Scenics range of tabletop terrain; New Kyoto offers a series of Japanese style sci-fi buildings ideal for 25mm - 32mm skirmish wargames.

    Whether you choose to mix and match these scenery sets or get the entire collection to create your sci-fi tabletop, all of the New Kyoto buildings, when finished, are a beauty to behold. With modular buildings and walkways that fit together, you can build your city the way you want it. You’ll have complete tabletop freedom with this scenery and the option of constructing taller and more complex structures at no extra cost.

    New Kyoto scenery kits


    Each of the buildings in the New Kyoto range has removable doors, walls, and ceilings so you can continue the tabletop action inside - it doesn't matter how large your structure is!

    The range includes three themed H.A.B (Habitation Modules) scenery kits, varying in size and luxury, a Hallway set, a Staircase set and Walkway set. For those of you who want to transform a HAB into a distinctive sci-fi building, there's also the Pagoda set and the Roof Corner set to collect (add these on to HAB units).

    All of the New Kyoto scenery sets are available to pre-order now at Wayland Games and with your FLGs - due for release at the end of July 2019.

    Legendary figures return to Wild West Exodus.
    There's a new kid in town.



    Move over Jesse James, Billy the Kid and his gang of gunmen have arrived.

    Billy the Kid is the leader of a like-minded gang known as The Regulators, who tread a curious line between notoriety and legitimacy. This is down to desperate Marshals who can turn to this gang of gunmen for their skill and experience in times of need.

    These Outlaws frequently partake in criminal activities including, but in no way limited to, bank and stage robberies, street brawls and on occasion, simply ‘settling an argument'...

    Pre-order The Regulators Posse from today!

    Billy isn’t the only legendary figure returning to the Wild West. The brilliantly gifted, Nikolai Tesla, is back fighting front line with the Union in his own specially designed battle strider. You can pre-order Legendary Nikolai Tesla now.

    Last month we announced the Amber Clade Posse, sporting a pair of fierce warriors, this month, the Vermilion Sentinels are available to pre-order as a set - a great addition for any Watcher force.

    This month also sees the Fire Eagle / Great Thunderbird available to pre-order for Warrior Nation. What more powerful an ally can the Warrior Nation have than these massive and ferocious energy beasts?

    Last but not least, we’re excited to announce the new Nazombu Bayou terrain range! The squabbles and skirmishes in the west can often spill out into all types of terrain. Few are as dangerous as the many bayous found along the gulf coast of Texas and into Louisiana. The Nazombu Bayou Abandoned Shack, originally built by settlers, is one of many safe-haven to fall into disuse and disrepair in the harsh swamplands. This new terrain piece is available to pre-order from today - dare you enter the Nazombu Bayou?

    All of next month’s releases are available to pre-order online now and from your FLGS - to be released on the 27th July 2019.

    It doesn’t matter if you’re building a post-apocalyptic battlefield, a fantasy battlefield or building a dense townscape for your favourite fantasy-based skirmish game. Gloomburg has you covered, with 6 different building types and at least one ruined variation for each so you can do anything your imagination desires.
    The scenic bases range also expands this month with two new additions, Clockwork, and Tech City. Clockwork is perfect for your favourite steampunk games like Malifaux, Wild West Exodus or even some Kharadron Overlords. The tech city range pairs perfectly with the Warcradle Scenics terrain range and would suit any Sci-fi miniatures like Infinity or an upgrade for your Kill Teams.

    Both Gloomburg and the Scenic bases are available to pre-order now at Wayland Games and with your FLGS - due for release at the end of August 2019.

    The scenery has always been pretty nice.

    Big thumbs up for offering resculpts of old models instead of just repacking them! I already own just about the entire new Cowboy posse, but I'll be damned if I don't pick this set up as well. At the very least we get updated cards, and I can use the original models in all sorts of other games (plus have the new ones there as well). As always the models have a lot of character to them!

    I love the fact that Johnny Ringo now looks like Uncle Rico from Napolean Dynamite. It's not just me seeing it, is it?

    Fighting in Arkham, Malifaux or even The Other Side? The Funland terrain would make a perfect addition to any of these games. This range of 28/32mm scale terrain has everything you need to complete an entire tabletop Funland.

    If you want one big coaster you can always combine multiple Roller Coaster kits to really give the customers a fright, or use one kit to make multiple smaller elements.

    You can fence off parts of the Park, add an entrance, and add a couple of mini-games to your miniatures game allowing you to build funtastic tables and enjoy all the fun of the fair!

Once Judge Kingsley Stern reaches his verdict, his ‘hang ‘em high’ approach to the law means it’s only a matter of time till those convicted face his gallows or his deputies - ruthless town folk, eager to prove their worth and enforce Stern's way.

    Interesting. I just got a first taste of their plastics, as I am building warbands for Dracula's America out of them for a more steampunk experience (also to fit with a book series a buddy of mine is writing).

    The resins are detailed like any other resin, really. But Man, the details on the plastics are great for plastics! Tiny intricate details, much moreso than GW stuff considering the much more realistic true-scaling of the gear and weapons on the Exodus kits. Im not sure I can ever actually paint all the bullets on their gunbelts, even though I can easily make them out, as they aren't the size of scale soda cans like the GW stuff I have been painting all these (25) years. I'd say the plastics are near!y as detailed as most resins, other than the realities of some of the joints because of the drawbacks of plastic moulds.

    Sounds like they've got similar plastics to Dropfleet/Dropzone which are very finely detailed as well and another great translation from resin to plastic. I do wonder if its a plastic that takes a bit longer to cool though. I got some castings where there's a clear imprint on a few parts which is clearly caused by the same sprue resting on top of it during the cooling period and being just heavy enough to press down.

    It might be a reason GW doesn't use it since it might be their plastic cures or at least cures firm faster and thus is more suited to high production speeds.

    Otherwise its great stuff and really encouraging to hear that Warcradle has secured similar plastics!


    OF course resin can still have the edge in shape designs when coming out of a mould; though GW has shown that very creative parting can overcome that limitation too.

    I noticed that the newer plastics weren't the same manufacturer as the originals.

    The original plastic grunt unit guys were all made by the same factory that did Wargames Factory/ Kingdom Death/ Malifaux. The amount of parts that most models were cut in to made that readily apparent.

    Some of the newer plastics seem similar- the wayward eight and deadly seven are pretty similar, but the hex beasts seemed like they were cut somewhere else.
