Subject: Re:Warcradle Studios - News - Updated Feb 1st 2018 - Posse Preview (pg12)
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
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
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
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
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
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.
We are pleased to announce we will have a limited edition collectors pin available exclusively during Adepticon 2018.
We hope to bring out a series of these collectors badges with a new one available at each major show we attend through the year. You will be able to purchase the badge either from our stand at Adepticon or through the Wild West Exodus website for the duration of the show.
Measuring almost an inch in diameter, this year's Adepticon exclusive pin will feature Unger, an Enlightened Creation and is strictly limited to 200 copies. Watch out for other iconic characters from the Dystopian Age coming soon!
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 one would like to get on your tabletop?

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.

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.

Subject: Re:Warcradle Studios - News - Updated Mar 23rd 2018 - RULES TEAM FOR THIRD EDITION (Pg13)
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!
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...
