Hey Warcradle, as a heads up the Marie Levau page has the Legendary Walks looking text on it.

Nice to see a steady slate of new releases!

That Walks Looking is a great improvement. She was one of my least favorite sculpts before.

She's going to be resin, right? Hopefully she'll be more cooperative staying together than my previous one, what with her Raging Heroes- style joints that are like a millimeter thick at most.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Awesome sculpts! Absolutely love the alpha and walks looking. Totally aced these warcradle! I also stopped buying dogs due to sculpt duplicates, nice to have new head and gun bits!

Any info on leveau, how she became warped (magic, rj, etc)?

Will these come with cards?

Maybe she's always been this way...

Hopefully the art Stu was talking about the other comes to light, and reveals why she may seem a little more horrifying that previously thought.

Watching Bran sculpting this was fun, everything gets better with tentacles.

Two videos have arrived from Beasts of War.

Stu (who is leading the design and direction of second edition ) and Daren (our studio head) spent a few days with the guys from Beast of War, and here are the results.

http://www.beastsofwar.com/wild-west-exodus/union-enlightened/ - Watch Daren take on Justin to get an overview of the current state of the second edition beta.

http://www.beastsofwar.com/wild-west-exodus/beta-edition-future-wwx/ - Stu and Daren sit down with Justin and give some overview of what we have been up to, and some of the direction for the future. Plus a few sneak peeks of upcoming minis.

Next week we are at the UK Games Expo in Birmingham, come see us for some more insights and a chance to get some hands on time with the second edition.

Okay, my thoughts on the second edition Beta rules (version 2.1) Sorry for the wordiness.

Overall, I really like a lot of what WarCradle is doing with WWX.

• I like the game engine with the two card decks. On the surface it seems simple and possibly restricting, but the options available with the Adventure Cards forces players to weigh their choices at all times.

• They have continued to build and encourage the community for the game, taking time every day to interact with us. I definitely sense that they will be strong in promoting and distributing the game, which in my mind were the biggest flaws with it previously.

• I was at first taken aback by the shift in fluff as well as the army-building system, but have come to accept them both. The army-building I have actually grown to like, and it should prove to be quite flexible in the end (and should also be easily expandable given its structure).

• The models continue to look brilliant, with plans for more hard plastic kits already in process. Several new and interesting characters have also been created/shown/teased.

• All art, graphics, and print materials thus far have been great quality, and I expect the final products to be very nice indeed once published. The Beta rules look better than the actual rulebook for some games.

The second edition rules thus far seem generally more streamlined, which I like. I am a very busy person with limited hobby/game time, so cleaner and simpler works well for me. But there is one aspect about the rules that I feel needs further streamlining: The Weapon Qualities and Unit Special Rules.

Depending on what units populate your army, between the Weapon Qualities and Unit Special Rules there’s a lot of detailed things to remember during play unless one doesn’t mind referring to the rulebook on a regular basis (which Warcradle says they don’t want players to have to do…and I definitely do not want to do). None of the 26 "weapon qualities" are described on the unit profile cards and so must be remembered or referenced during play; they average 38 words in length and a few have other rules built within them. The "unit special rules" are numerous but at least they are shown on the profile cards; however nearly 20% of them give the unit one or more other special rules which are not on the cards (and again require memorization or looking it up during play). One of them even has four other special rules referenced within it, while several others reference three other rules each. Additionally, I feel that the number of overall weapon qualities and unit special rules make it unlikely that all possible combinations or interactions have been (or will be) thoroughly tested before the announced publication date. If this proves to be true, issues surely will arise resulting in numerous errata/FAQ/rules updates, etc. which was a big criticism many had of the first edition. I wonder if some of these special rules couldn’t just be removed as they are so situational or finicky. It will be interesting to see how they change during the remainder of the beta testing.

I also have a minor gripe about certain infantry models seemingly needing rebasing but I’m hoping those are just errors on the beta cards.

For me the issues with the special rules, if they remain as they are, are enough to push this game way down on my list of games to play. Of course, this is just my opinion…others may find these things to be no issue at all for them and think me a silly old fool, lol. I highly recommend anyone even remotely interested give the beta rules a try and come to your own conclusions. There is a lot to like with the new WWX.

After a very hectic but enjoyable weekend at the UK Games Expo, I thought it would be worth doing a little catch up for you fans here at Dakka Dakka.

First up, during the Friday Press session, Craig and I got a chance to talk about the game to several podcasts and youtube types. We gave a few hints about the ongoing vision of the game.

Thanks to Black Jack Legacy and Sprues and Brews for their coverage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8wDB6PAovM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQnCSJjMHQc

We also had the revised booth, taking our Salute stand and increasing the size and scope of what we can do with it. This will continue to evolve, with GenCon being our next big target. One thing we are really keen to increase is the studio model cabinets, as we want to make sure the whole range is covered, giving people a good visual guide to the factions and showing off the figures we produce, which was one of the most commented on things by visitors to the stand.

We also managed to sneak a few more hints of what is coming in the near future onto the stand, with some new artwork dotted about for the eagle eyed, and 3D prints of several upcoming models that hadn't been seen before, including the new Legendary Marie Leveau (in all her revealed glory) and the HexBeasts, which most people will likely want to grab a few of, once they read the rules for Hex in game...

I've nabbed this photo from GMorts blog (who has a great review of the whole show if you missed it here: http://gmortschaotica.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/uk-games-expo-2017-overview.html" target="_new" rel="nofollow"> http://gmortschaotica.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/uk-games-expo-2017-overview.html


We also recently put the render of the new Marie up, and I will see if I can sneak some more shots of the Hex Beasts out from under the watchful eyes of security in the future.



The beta is coming along nicely, we ran a huge amount of demos over the weekend, and were rewriting rules over breakfast as we tweak and refine for release. Close combat should get a little easier and characters might be tweaked down in armour to make the game even more deadly and fun.

Hopefully you folks are continuing to playtest and give us your feedback, so that we can put out the best possible version of WWX in September.

Announcing our new miniatures for release August 2017!

We are very excited to announce that August 26th will see the release of a new resculpt of the resin miniature, Legendary Ghost Wolf. We are also releasing the resin miniature version of Ghost Wolf for the first time separately outside of the Two Player Mini Starter Box.

GHOST WOLF

“The Great Spirit has given our enemies to us. We are to destroy them. We know of what they are.”

These words are attributed to one of the greatest heroes of the Warrior Nation and perhaps suggest a more aggressive approach to the world than he truly represents. In his life, Ghost Wolf has been known by many names, in the manner of his people, but the sobriquet by which he now goes most accurately describes him. His quiet, acts of selfless bravery down the years have earned him a reputation as a man who cares more for the needs of others than he does for those of his own. He is deeply loved and admired by those who are close to him, idolised by those who are near and treated with a respectful caution by any further afield.

A placid and gentle soul in peacetime, Ghost Wolf is insightful and wise, fond of storytelling and enjoying the company of his extensive family. But when he is roused to anger – and it is not easy to bring him to such a state – the beast within is unleashed. When Ghost Wolf calls upon the Great Spirit’s strength and makes the connection with his spirit guide, the wolf can no longer be contained, ripping and tearing its way to the fore.

Contains one resin miniature and one base.

Pre-Order Ghost Wolf now Online or at your local stockist for £13.00.





LEGENDARY GHOST WOLF

Ghost Wolf’s prowess in times of war is nothing short of mythological. When he transforms, he metamorphoses into something beyond terrifying. The bestial form, wreathed in blue spirit fire is a sight that reduces his enemies to quivering heaps of jelly and which galvanises his own people to acts of greatness. He has led the Warrior Nation in skirmishes against the settlers whose intrusion into their native lands has resulted in so much destruction. Always, the goal is the same. To protect the very ground and air which they all share.

His anger and sorrow at being unable to aid his daughter, Walks Looking, as she fights her own private battles is a personal tragedy for him, but he will not turn his back on her. Their relationship is a complex one, more formal than perhaps it once was.

In more recent times, Ghost Wolf has been instrumental in making headway into opening diplomatic channels between the Warrior Nation and the other people of the west. He holds great respect for the Lawmen, particularly Bass Reeves with whom he has frequent discourse. For his part, Bass Reeves believes that Ghost Wolf’s advice, often tempered with rationality and clarity of thinking, is the best he has ever, or will ever receive.

Contains one resin miniature, with two weapons choices, and one scenic base.

Pre-Order Legendary Ghost Wolf now Online or at your local stockist for £20.00.

We are very excited to announce that September sees the launch of the new edition of Wild West Exodus!

You can now pre-order Posse and Starter Sets for Warrior Nation, Enlightened, Union, Lawmen, and Outlaws. The coming months will see more sets, particularly releases for the Order, Hex and Watchers.

These new Posse Boxes are a fantastic milestone for Warcradle Studios as they include the first resin miniatures from our new state-of-the-art resin production facility. We are using the very best in technology and materials to bring these miniatures to you. We will keep you up-to-date on this exciting new development.

Posse sets will give you all the miniatures you need to get your favourite faction onto the tabletop. These are expanded further as Starter Sets which add to the Posse with the rules, dice, cards, tokens, templates and much more. For those hobbyists who already have a bunch of miniatures that you want to get playing with, the rulebook and the additional components are available in a box on their own called the Rules & Gubbins Set.

Wild West Exodus is also bringing out new Introductory Sets. These include everything in the Rules and Gubbins box as well as two taster posses. That way you can give the game a go without having to commit to any one faction straight away. If that sounds like a plan, then Wild West Exodus: Gunfight at Red Oak is the set for you! It's time to settle the score between Jesse James and Wyatt Earp once and for all...

I'm not with warcradle, but I think they're now finalized here.

2nd edition physical product will ship with the new cards, and decks will be released in November.

I do gotta say seeing the conquistadors in the warrior nation left me scratching my head. They, uhh.. didnt exactly have a good relationship with the indigenous folks lol. But since I'm all in on WN, looks like I'll be grabbing a few more Spaniards!

The Spaniards are still part of the outlaws too. Im assuming the thought is the warrior nation is now central american, north american, worldwide indians. The conquistadors moved into central america, so now they work together.

Warcradle, any news on restocks? I initially had waited to purchase minis until they were released (don't like spending money a month ahead of a release for a general releas item). I see almost everything sells out before release. Due to that I am learning and changing my purchasing habits, preordering more.

I see many newer minis are in a state of being recasted/restocked for weeks... or even longer. I know a person who preordered ghost wolf and never got him yet (preorders were in august, release september, it's now october). The friend who preordered didnt get the mini yet and the mini is listed as being out of stock/recasted. Same thing with legendary leveau. So even preorders are not being fulfilled due to stock issues or slow restocking.

I see all the 2nd edition starters sold out before release. Will this be a trend? I hope restocking is faster with days or one to two week turnarounds like outlaw minis had. Sucks waiting weeks or more to get more awesome wwx goodies!!

Thanks for the message, due to the popularity of these models, the production team have been pulling extra shifts to catch up. I am pleased to say that item such as the Gun Dogs, Ghost Wolf, Legendary Marie Laveau and more are now complete. If you don't already have you should see yours very soon.

Warcradle, thanks for the fast reply! I had hoped my post came out right, with the right tone (was just curious, love what you guys do and will buy everything wwx you make).

That's what I thought, it seems wwx is selling faster than it ever had! (which means great things for the community, game, growth, etc) I know minis are being released each month, and I'm sure it's hard to keep up production with past, present, and future models with increased worldwide demand - not to mention the big release of 2nd edition. Really looking forward to the wayward eight, seven models, and 2nd edition card packs!

Ive been a fan since the beginning of wwx, and am happy to see where the game is going. Keep up the good work

Really liked the video. The board was great, great choice of a gaming mat and mix of terrain.

That's great! Don't have anything for the game so far so was hoping to use this as a starting point (along with a starter set perhaps)
