They look like they're the same, comparing them to mine. Weird they split them up into two boxes of five. It unfortunately makes them more expensive vs the standard 5 close combat/5 ranged.

They look the same; I'm assuming they are the same hired hands sculpts with new 2nd edition packages and cards. The split is nice if you are building a small force and don't need both long range and cc hands. Some of the minis in the starters were changed though (Jackson stepping on a crate, carpathian stepping on an rj canister, the brutes, walks looking, etc).

On another note, just finished the bow 2nd edition videos. Love where the story is going and the fact that it is still alternate history with characters we love. The civil war is over, union rule, lawmen enforce, outlaws... outlaw. Its great that each factoon has their own unique purpose, and its not just killing eachother like many other wargames. Really like how the watchers, hex, and order fit in! Kudos to warcradle, hell of a job guys!

I hope we see books in the next year or two The first edition books were great, but it would be great to see our characters (including new characters like leveau) immersed and explained in this new edition!

Wayward 8, deadly 7, grant, jackson, earps, james... too much awesome in one game lol. If only there was a subscription service to get one of everything newly made at your door every month

Any thoughts on my force creation question?

when i create a posse, lets say i choose enlightened.
when i look at the enlightened faction posse it says "in an enlightened force, instead of a theme posse, burson carpathian may take this enlightened faction posse.

what if i dont choose carpathian as my boss?

Regarding the action/adventure cards, we have not got a release date for this item (on its own) at present but keep checking our pre-order announcements for updates

When it comes to your force creation question, every Boss has a theme posse and also has access to the faction posse. There will be cards going online this week which will give you more posse options but for now you can assume that any Enlightened Boss can take the Enlightened Faction Posse.

The models in the kits are the same or very similar with only small tweaks, so if you have figures from the 1st edition of the game they are still usable. However, in the new sets, we have broken them down into groups of five due to the adjustment in hand unit sizes and point costs. This way you don't have to buy a box of 10 hands and find half of them going unused because you cannot afford them in points or because they are not the unit type you wanted, so you will find these new sets more cost efficient as well as easier to tailor to your force.

Within the Covenant of the Enlightened are many whose ideas and theories have been ridiculed and dismissed by the world’s formal agencies of scientific endeavour. Their ranks are filled with eccentric misfits whose research into the esoteric stretches the realms of credibility. Most find acceptance and even vindication amongst their fellow outcasts but there are some who test even the open minds of the ladies and lords of the Enlightened.⠀

It's time for the Soul Hunters.⠀

Soul Hunters are indeed an off-shoot of the Enlightened faction

The Soul Hunters are a self-contained Posse much like the Deadly Seven or Wayward Eight.

Was it mentioned what material these Soul Hunters will be cast in, and I just missed it?

Resin seems to be the default choice for most individual models, but I've been wrong before...

Is it too late to send in those rulebook photos?

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

We have not mentioned what material the Soul Hunters will be cast in yet, this announcement was more about the background of the posse rather than the specifics that announcement will be made closer to the time. Keep your eyes peeled!

I have also PM'd you.

question...
i like to make my own cards and summary sheets.
i usually do it by copying and pasting whatever i can find and then using excel to manipulate the data.
the problem that i've run into with WWX is that the cards are all pictures so there is nothing to grab.

do any of you know of any other sources for the card info?

So how do you all feel about the rules?
The more i dig into them the more that i like them but if i had one critique of them it would be all of the special rules.
I find them difficult to keep up with.

This month will see the release of new hired hand boxes which are available to pre-order now and are released at the end November 2018. We are also now taking pre-orders for the Action and Adventure Card Deck for use with second edition.

Make sure to order these new re-sculpts! There are many to choose from, including the Plains Warriors and Stalkers box, and the Raider/Hex Cutthroats and Gunmen box.

We also have repackaged some old favourites, from the Spica Cohort to the Reaver Headhunters and Harriers. Make sure to check out the rest of Novembers pre-orders below so you don't miss out on hired help for your favourite faction.


CONSTRUCTED MENIALS

The greatest scientific minds of a generation have been twisted and corrupted by the whispered words of a dark and mysterious force. Once, in another reality, soaring towers of graceful steel would have risen up into the sky built by these men. But now brutal machines of destruction, powered by the very essence of evil, seek to crush the ignorant beneath their iron weight. Medicine that could have saved countless lives now drags the helpless dead back into the land of the living. Mindless automatons moving solely in the direction of these crazed geniuses. Men so convinced of the purity of their own motives and ideals that nothing can be allowed to question them. Once heralded as the saviours of mankind, they now stand to provide the tools and weapons set on destroying all living things on earth.

This contains:
5x Constructed Menials Miniatures
5x Bases

Pre-Order Constructed Menials now Online or at your local stockist for £13.00




CONSTRUCTED HENCHMEN

Once, in another reality, soaring towers of graceful steel would have risen up into the sky built by these men. But now brutal machines of destruction, powered by the very essence of evil, seek to crush the ignorant beneath their iron weight.

Pre-Order Constructed Henchmen now Online or at your local stockist for £13.00




RAIDER/HEX CUTTHROATS AND GUNMEN

Desperate men, who have turned their backs on the very concept of decency and honour, live as wanted criminals. These degenerates of society struggle for a moment in the spotlight, caring only for the recognition of infamy. Their egos drive body counts higher and higher with each town they pass through. With the clandestine assistance of renegade scientists, these men will stop at nothing to be the strongest, fastest, most frightening specters in the Wild West. From bio-mechanical implants to stolen experimental weaponry, only death may stop their headlong quest for fame and wealth. Powerful weapons and a reckless way of life have made the Outlaws a force to be reckoned with.

This contains:
5x Raider/Hex Cutthroats Miniatures
5x Raider/Hex Gunmen Miniatures
10x Bases

Pre-Order Raider/Hex Cutthroats and Gunmen now Online or at your local stockist for £20.00





UNION ARMOURED RIFLEMEN AND GUARD

Having mercilessly crushed the Confederacy in the recent Civil War, the full power of the North now turns its greedy eyes westward. Fuelled by the full destructive potential of stolen scientific technologies, the Union's might seem unstoppable. It seeks to defend itself against any threat that might rise up against it by crushing all those who could even pose such a menace. Without pity or compassion, the stampeding juggernaut annihilates anything in its path as it continues to consolidate an entire continent beneath its armoured boot.

This contains:
5x Union Armoured Riflemen Miniatures
5x Union Armoured Guard Miniatures
10x Bases

Pre-Order Union Armoured Riflemen and Guard now Online or at your local stockist for £20.00





PLAINS WARRIORS AND STALKERS

The proud descendants of the men who were once the lords and masters of the entire continent, now fight to regain power. These Native American warriors have thrown off the noose of enforced servitude to the United States. Joining their tribes together they form an alliance of unparalleled strength that taps into ancient spiritual power. No longer does the Warrior Nation allow others to take from them the land of their ancestors. Confronting the twisted science of tomorrow with the purity of the Earth, the Warrior Nation has taken up the mantle of protector of the land, and will stop at nothing to eradicate this new threat.

This contains:
5x Plains Warrior Miniatures
5x Plains Stalker Miniatures
10x Bases

Pre-Order Plains Warriors and Stalkers now Online or at your local stockist for £20.00





VETERAN RANGERS AND RANGER MINUTEMEN

The law was an elusive animal in the Old West, and today's sheriff could easily prove to be tomorrow's highwayman at the least provocation or opportunity. Many of the most famous, or infamous, Lawmen to establish themselves throughout the western territories were in fact merely the most successful outlaws, history, as is so often the case, having been written by the victors. But after the brutal culmination of the Civil War in the east, the western territories began to experience an age of such violence and upheaval that there was almost no hope for ordinary men and women to survive, let alone prosper. Those who rose up to defend them were the Lawmen.

This contains:
5x Veteran Ranger Miniatures
5x Ranger Minutemen Miniatures
10x Bases

Pre-Order Veteran Rangers and Ranger Minutemen now Online or at your local stockist for £20.00





SPICA COHORT

The Order are an ancient organisation that pre-dates human civilisation. They wage a war against both their ancient adversaries, the Watchers and the spreading corruption of the Dark Council.

They crusade tirelessly to keep humanity free from outside domination and influence. A key strategy in their mission is to seek out and destroy RJ-based technology as it is both an aspect of the Dark Council's corrupting influence and draws the hated Watchers to Earth.

The Order do not seem to care about the wretched parts of humanity that are caught in the crossfire as they purge the Earth. There are some who wonder whether the destiny of humanity under the control of the Order is any better than falling to the taint of the Dark Council or succumbing to the claws and energy beams of the Watchers.

This contains:
10x Spica Cohort Miniatures
10x Bases

Pre-Order Spica Cohort now Online or at your local stockist for £20.00





GREY PULSE MYRIAD AND DRAIN MYRIAD

As the portals once again open on earth, mankind has no idea what is coming. The destructive power of the Watchers will completely strip the land of all living things. The Watchers use their Alpha leaders to guide and advance their many species of aliens. Each and every member of the Watchers knows his role in their society and follow orders without question. As their enemies attempt to stop the Watchers, the Betas drain the life energy from their bodies and transport it to their Alpha leader. This transforms the Alpha during the course of any battle into an enemy that knows every move you will make before you even make it. With inhuman weapons and a thirst for human blood, they plan to wipe mankind off the planet once and for all.

This Box Set contains:
4x Pulse Myriad Miniatures
6x Drain Myriad Miniatures
10x Bases

Pre-Order Grey Pulse Myriad and Drain Myriad now Online or at your local stockist for £20.00





CABALLEROS AND CAZADORES

The once famous explorer Ponce de Leon and his conquistadors were subjected to a mix of Watcher blood and tropical jungle water. What they call the fountain of youth has now kept them alive for hundreds of years endlessly searching for the source. Their influence over the Mexican people and robust army has pushed them to the door step of the country's boarder. The men of the Golden Army know of only one thing. Fight until dead or until the enemy is destroyed. This horde faction sends endless supply of men to battle. They are led and protected by the destructive weapons of the conquistadors directing them from the rear. They will soon push across the border ready to destroy any army that stands in their way.

This Box Set contains:

5x Caballeros Miniatures
5x Cazadores Miniatures
10x Bases
Pre-Order Caballeros and Cazadores now Online or at your local stockist for £20.00





REAVER HEADHUNTERS AND HARRIERS

Once a proud and spiritual people, the Warrior Nation has fought long and hard to keep technology out of their lands. However, the pull on its people has consumed many of their warriors, and the Dark Council has influenced even the strongest of their leaders. With the corruption spreading like a virus, the shape shifting Warrior Nation men and women become trapped in a half animal half human form left to walk the land as deformed creatures with no home. Once these proud warriors leave the guiding light of the Great Spirit, they are doomed to a blood thirsty life of war. Their beast and human form aide those in their battles against anyone who would dare oppose them. With weapons and technology at their side, these beasts may never be stopped.

This Box set contains:
5x Reaver Headhunter Miniatures
5x Reaver Harrier Miniatures
10x Bases

Pre-Order Reaver Headhunters and Harriers now Online or at your local stockist for £20.00





ACTION AND ADVENTURE DECKS

One of the most exciting and dynamic elements to the Second Edition of Wild West Exodus is the interplay between the Action and the Adventure card decks. This set contains a complete 60 card Adventure deck and a full 48 card Action deck.

This product contains:

Which sculpts are re-sculpts?

To be honest they look pretty similar, if not outright the same, as the previous plastics. Have they been touched up though? The renders look a lot crisper, that's for sure.

Loving that Marshall Reeves is being used as the scale marker too. What a great sculpt he is!

Also got my rulebook the other day. Quite impressive! Looking to get some games in under the new rules soon!

Something strange is happening in the world of Wild West Exodus and we know you are going to love it. The jolly fat man has decided the chimney is a tad too small and that certainly isn't reindeer you can hear on the roof... Kyle the Red & White is coming to ye 'olde town!




You may have already seen the Beasts of War announcement (https://www.beastsofwar.com/wild-west-exodus/exclusive-warcradles-awesome-xmas-miniature/) but we wanted to give you the full details first! Our seasonal miniature, Kyle the Red & White (and 'Max' a particularly quirky K9 Attack Dog), will be available to order until December 30th this year.

But, if you miss him this year, fear not, he will reappear with his trusty companion next December!





Kyle the Red & White (http://www.wildwestexodus.com/enlightened/49803-kyle-the-red-white) is a special edition miniature for this festive period from Warcradle Studios. This seasonal version of Kyle the Black also comes with "Max", Kyle's faithful K9 Attack Dog curiously sporting his own festive reindeer horn. Kyle 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. Kyle is carrying a toy Union battleship for a lucky girl or boy as well as a host of other enlightening surprises!

The miniatures are packed full of neat touches and fantastic festive details. Dare you give him a kiss under his mistletoe? Not if you are fond of your lips and face you won't!

This product contains:

1x Kyle The Red & White Miniature
1x "Max" The Attack Dog Miniature
3x Bases

Is Romeo Filip completely out of this game now that Warcradle owns it, or is he still getting residuals from the IP? I've been mildly interested in the game but refuse to give Battle Foam or any of his other properties any money on the stance that he is an donkey-cave, and I don't support donkey-caves

So in summary:

- Awkwardly jam two quite different, separate game's plotlines into one, including adding supernatural elements to a science-based game.
- Split Dystopian Wars into two separate games.
- And change the scale of one of them while at it.

Yippee.

Yeah I'm a bit confused as well. For instance in Wild West Exodus the North (Union) won or exists but in Dystopian Wars didn't the Confederates win? How is that reconciled?
