This is a good looking model. The face doesn't match the concept art, but the facial features do remind me of Will Smith from Wild Wild West, so that is cool.

Reeves is pretty neat, but the little details are killing it for me. How does he draw his guns from those cinched up holsters?

He doesn't need to un-holster them- he just pulls them up with his superfluous belts.

I actually think that's the correct level for crossdraw, butt of the gun neat your waist.

No no, not talking about the height of the holsters. I'm talking about the fact that at the top opening of the holsters, its cinched in to the grip of the gun, which means it's cinched over the trigger/trigger guard, preventing it from being drawn smoothly.

Notice here, on a real holster, how the gun will be able to draw smoothly:

Colonel Albert Campbell is a distinguished commander of the Union Army Corps of Engineers. His knowledge of fortifications and demolitions keeps his skills in high demand. However, it is his hardworking no nonsense attitude and fairness that makes him popular with the men and women who serve with him.

Meet our new promotional miniature for 2017 - Feeling Excited!

We've got some exciting news regarding the recently previewed Legendary Captain Nimue miniature for Wild West Exodus. From April 2017 she will be our promotional miniature!

That mean that this stunning plastic multi-part figure will be available for free at all shows that Warcradle attend in 2017 as well as being available in your local game stores as part of our retailer promotional support kits (to be released in April). For us this makes an important statement about how serious we are in promoting and supporting this fantastic game. In particular we want to show how we view the community and want to give retailers and demo teams the best possible tools in showcasing Wild West Exodus.

Legendary Captain Nimue will available at events and shows worldwide in 2017. We are also working on supplying retailers and distributors so that you don't need to attend a show to get hold of one. Finally, once this year is over we will be adding the exact same miniature to our main range meaning that if you aren't able to pick one up this year, you will still be able to purchase it at your local retailer or online. So no need to worry about having to pay a scalper an over inflated price for her in 2018!

The Enlightened's doyen of galvanism, the domineering Countess Augusta Byron is an imposing woman. Being both Intellectual and immortal is a potent combination and her flesh bears the marks of decades of amputation and augmentation as she replaces ageing or aesthetically displeasing body parts.

Rumours abound of a vault at her estate containing refrigerated chunks of compatible cadavers. One apocryphal tale speaks of the Countess admiring the beauty of a particularly porcelain featured maid in her service. The poor servant was never heard of again and the Countess was pleased with the compliments her own newly refined features garnered at the following Enlightened symposium.

The secret to the Countess' long life is her repeated reanimation through the application of a proprietorial combination of conductive material implanted into her body. Along with an alchemical cocktail coursing through her bloodstream the Countess makes prodigious application of lightning harnessed for such a purpose and held deep within her flesh. In times of defence the Countess can draw on the voltaic charge within her and hurl lightning bolts at her would be attackers, however she is more likely to have them dismembered by one of her ghoulish creations with the raising of an eyebrow and a sneer.

Another model with loads of wonderful details! Will be interesting to see what she can do in the game.

Don't know if anyone caught this, but FRP carries WWX now and the 2 player starter set (Outlaws vs Lawmen) is only $40 discounted off a retail of $50. Kind of glad I passed up the 2 player starter at Gen Con now in favor of a couple faction starters.

Excited for the new stuff, can't wait to get all my preorders! Only thing I wish is that the promotional mini would also be available for sale on the wwx website. That would make it easy for those of us who can't make conventions to get one.

Why make an exclusive, especially since the kickstarter exclusive ladies from both ks are not exclusive anymore

Thought we mentioned this

You will be able to get her at all events we attend, once available. Through organized play, through store events and through lots of events even if Warcradle are not attending themselves. We will make sure any store running events gets them.

I know the game is in a transitional mode since ownership changed hands fairly recently, but I am quite pleased with what I have been seeing and hearing so far. I am thinking that by this time next year the game will see significant growth in exposure and player-base. Really looking forward to it!

Introducing Legendary Nura Holy Order




Within the Order, Elita Nura was only recently raised to the rank of Sircan following years of service in the field as a Mimreg during the Third Phase of the Crusade. Nura's selection was initially something of a disappointment to her, as with the construction of the Apotheosis Gates she yearned for the chance to join the Cor Caroli. Unlike many of her rank within the Order, Nura was fully aware of what apotheosis to a Cor Coroli entails but this knowledge did nothing to dampen her zeal. Her fervent desire to serve the Order more fully was thus recognised by the Allshard and so Nura has been given command of the Portal Vanguard - the Astraea.

Within the Council she is considered a fractious zealot, a suitable counterpoint to Sircan Abner. Unlike her elder, Nura believes that the last battle against the Hex fast approaches so she pushes for Phase Five of the Crusade to be enacted. As such, Nura's voice is the most extreme within the Order as she seeks to provoke a suitably devastating encounter with the Hex that would justify the declaration of Phase Five and all-out war.

When in the field acting as the Allshard's instrument she is equally impatient to bring about the unveiling of the Order's true mission. This reveals itself as a disdain for the use of subterfuge and stealth, instead portal jumping into combat directly and taking her foe unawares with the precision application of overwhelming force against those tainted by the Hex through absorption of its essence or simply through being manipulated by the Dark Council. She finds that the seismic powers of her Luminant Staff more than capable of eliminating either type of foe.

For now her violent excesses and insistent urgings for progression of the Crusade have been forestalled by the patient testimony and sermonising of Sircan Abner but as open war looms ever closer it is only a matter of time before she gains enough support on the Council to convince the Allshard to begin the next phase of the Crusade. Nura's commitment to the Order is absolute and her greatest fear is that her faith in its mission should be found wanting in this most desperate hour, a fear whose voice she drowns out with strident calls for war. Should she learn of Sircan Abner's true reasons for wanting to stall the furtherance of the Crusade she would decry him to the Allshard in an instant and perform his permanent excommunication personally.

    Introducing "Broad Arrow Jack"




    The frontier is a place where legends are born but not necessarily earned. Few men have born as many legends Broad Arrow Jack. That doesn't surprise Jack though, he told most of them himself.

    Jack is a grifter, always working deals in an effort to make his big score and retire somewhere warm. He's good at what he does too due to his predilection for sidestepping the law. As he has been heard to remark "The law is what other people do.". As yet he hasn't gotten round to retiring. More often than not he will spend his winnings on a good time with a bad woman (or even occasionally a bad time with a good woman) which leaves him penniless and in need of a new mark.

    Woman really are Jack's weakness. He's had many wives and still does as he doesn't believe in divorce. Jack has a wife in every state he has laid low in for any amount of time, moving on when the money and opportunities have run out. It's not hard to see why; Jack is everyone's pal who is generous with his cash when his troubles are far on the horizon.

    If trouble does comes calling or if someone foolishly stands in the way of Jack's prize then a different man emerges. This Jack is cold blooded killer, quick with his knife and quicker with his pistol, uncaring of the widows left in his wake. This is the Jack who surely earned the scars littered across his body but what of the large arrow branded into the flesh on his back? Occasionally Jack alludes to his past, but each audience receives a different tale. Whatever the truth, he refuses to be shackled and will fight like a man possessed if a deputy comes his way, a panicked desperation in his otherwise usually charismatic eyes.

    Nice video! Very impressed with the efforts by Warcradle for what will be a freebie model (retail packaging, hard plastic model with scenic base, full color card, etc.). Bodes well for the future IMO.
