Poor eagle! It must have eaten something that really disagreed with it's tummy!

Joking aside, this range of minis has always appeared too stiff and awkwardly posed for my tastes and this batch of releases does nothing to change my opinion on the matter.

Really?

Do you prefer a more arms and legs flying in all directions type of pose for your gunslinging action?

It looks like the flames might be a separate piece?

If not, as it is resin, it should be somewhat easy to remove.

But still, I find it hard to believe they aren't a separate piece.

Something to consider too - the price on that thing - ouch!

No, but I like my minis to look like the characters that they are representing have joints in their limbs. Just doing a quick Google Images search of Wild West Exodus produces a wealth of miniatures with locked limbs, rigid as boards. Generally the range of figures looks very static and inorganic, which is odd considering the vast majority of miniatures are organic entities.

Having locked arms like a Robotech Defender / Battletech Rifleman is not how I'd want my cowboy riflemen to be represented.

And that eagle looks like it is puking. But that is neither here nor there in regards to the my stiffness criticism.

I think the models are looking pretty great to be honest... good for Romeo and crew!

One person who deserves particular mention is Tom Schaedle aka Commander Y... his paintjobs are amazing and really add a lot to the line.

It is great paint, and holds up well to the zoomed in pictures, but I think the pics are too enormous.
No one needs to see preview pictures of 35mm models that are 6" high, makes it difficult to take the mini in properly IMO.

Yeah... it's a tricky line to walk. I don't like competition painters putting up 1:1 screen sized shots because it is a bit of a cheat, it covers up a lot of stuff on both model and paint by blurring pixels... something that looks crazy good at small size can be pretty terrible in real life. Well, maybe not terrible but you know what I mean.

I personally would like to see both a 1:1 size, and a zoomed in size as above, because if it works on both, then it just plain works .

Agreed!

Aside from Dark Travellers who have got to Travel, I think the line has been well received

The casts I've got so far have all been good, customer service has as well - the one minor knock might be the price on some of the figures...

I think they accidentally typed up that there were only 10 minis for $46. Should be a lot more, right? Right?

As stated the price is correct but that being said you won't spend as much as you think. They have starters and you can get into the game with rules everything and not need anything else for under $200 and be done. So while they are pricey at first glance in the overall they are comparatively cheap AND they have the $5 a month model deal which is pretty damn sweet.

Listen, my children, as I pass onto you the truth behind Willy Wonka and his factory. For every wonka bar ever created in existance, Mr. Wonka sacraficed a single Oompa Loompa to the god of chocolate, Hearshys. Then, he drank the blood of the fallen orange men because he fed them a constant supply of sugary chocolate so they all became diabetic and had creamy, sweet-tasting blood that willy could put into each and every Wonka bar. That is the REAL story behind willy wonka's Slaughter House!

What scale are these? 35mm to eye level or top? Do they fit the upcoming Shadows of Brimstone game with a similar topic?

They really are 35mm, though some of that is due to the base style/custom basing:

Strange. They don't seem to fit well with any of the other games. Not that they necessarily have to, mind you. It just seems like a missed opportunity.

There really aren't a lot of other alternate history post Civil War American Steam Punk Magic Weird West games out there though...

Though to be fair, the biggest pain is the terrain!

Malifaux springs to mind. Similar time period/genre (?) as WWX. I might be tempted to pick up some figures for my Guild crew if they were closer in scale.

Malifaux's a bit more 'out there' - more so than even WWX is, so far.

Aside from maybe the Warrior Nation.

Or the Enlightened.

OK, maybe not so far apart then!

Making a lot of assumptions here.

I buy minis for the minis.* Saying expensive models are not expensive because [game] is pretty silly to me.





* I haven't had a tabletop game in 5 years with no prospects for another one until roughly 2025. And is WWX really something people would buy to play instead of to have the minis for [non WWX] reasons?

I'm confused by this all I said was it's not all that expensive to get into.

To get into...

All I said/implied is that the minis are expensive. The game might be relatively very affordable, and each box might be a complete army in itself for every ruleset ever written while also scoring you a free lapdance at Leo's Lady Emporium, but that doesn't change the fact that the minis themselves are expensive for what they are.


Or maybe I don't value slightly-stiff, steampunkish not-Brisco County Junior minis as highly as others? Sticker shock brings out my catty side.

The eagle looks like it had potential, but doesn't hold up to the Hobbit eagle miniatures... I think it's the wings here, they just look too thick.

It definitely has some cool elements to it, but as a miniature on the whole I don't think it really works...
