Hmm, wonder if the vehicles are being redone (and cheaper). The great elk had a nice price drop. Hoping for something similar when it's the wendigo's turn

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?

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!

    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.

    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.)

    Basically they've mashed the Dystopian Wars background together with that of the Wild West Exodus to give the Dystopian Age

    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.
