    • Wild West Exodus: Hour of the Wolf
      This month brings with it an assortment of legendary miniatures and a brand-new posse! Hour of the Wolf is set to be the second Warrior Nation Posse Set for the Second Edition of Wild West Exodus - and includes everyone’s favourite chieftain; Ghost Wolf.

      Today, we’re taking a closer look at the Hour of the Wolf.

      Who are they?

      The Hour of the Wolf posse is led by the insightful and wise Ghost Wolf. For a character who is fond of storytelling and enjoying the company of his extensive family, he is all too often roused to war where his talents are put to a bloodier purpose.

            

      Though a powerful Spirit Walker, Ghost Wolf often remains in his mortal form as the Warrior Nation has a great need for his leadership and tactical mind. The wolf within him calls to his kin and often he is always accompanied by a number of his brother wolves. These hunting wolves have been blessed by the Great Spirit to be larger and stronger than their kin as well as possessing more intelligence. They are as fast as the wind and their powerful jaws are potent allies. When they attack in a pack there is little that can stand against them. The wolf spirit ensures he is often accompanied by those Spirit Walkers of the Weylyn who can embrace the animal spirit and aid their chieftain.

      Ghost Wolf can always rely on the support of Hawkeye and Moonswift, two experienced warriors who are carving out their own legend within the Nation. Hawkeye is second to none with a bow, capable of hitting the eye of a running hare. With a kinship that approaches family, Moonswift is almost as fast as her Hunting Wolf brothers and sisters. Adept at channelling spirit energy, Moonswift is able to leap over her enemies and bury an axe in an exposed flank.


      How do they play?

      This Posse likes to get up close and personal. Not only are they good at getting there, all being rather swift of foot, but they can wreak havoc when they do get there. Leveraging Moonswift’s DANCES WITH WOLVES special rule on the Hunting Wolves means they will not only be able to activate via Teamwork but will allow them to Focus their Move and Charge Actions for free. Use all the cover you can and get in quick as, once you are there, these trained warriors will tear your enemies to pieces.

    • January 2019 Warcradle Q&A - Video and Blog
      Our latest Q&A is now live!

      For January 2019’s Q&A Stuart and Chris sat down and answered the community’s questions on Wild West Exodus, Dystopian Wars, and Firestorm Armada.

      You can read the blog and watch the video, right here.


      Q&A SUMMARY

      Prefer to read? If you're interested in a specific game and would like to skip straight to questions asked about that system, take a look below, as we've included a summary for each!

      WILD WEST EXODUS

      When can we expect a hardback edition of the rulebook?

      The hardback rulebook is still a work in progress at this stage.

      We are starting work on 1.09 from next month and, in fact, we already have a lot of notes on the update - we just need to collate them all and test them out.

      We should have more information on the hardback rulebook after 1.09.

      Where can we get information about our favourite characters?

      All of the new releases, and a large number of the existing miniatures have a bio on the webstore and we will continue to add more as we go. We advise you check them out - they’re great little pieces of information.

      We also have some new novels currently in progress, which will let you take a more in-depth look at individual characters as well as the Dystopian Age as a whole. The Ore War is definitely a part of the background we want to explore in more detail and, although we cannot divulge, we do have a few ideas on how to do this.

      There are plenty of vignettes on the blog as well, you can view all of Sarah Cawkwell’s vignettes right here.

      What’s your plans for terrain?

      We have plans for a number of Wild West Exodus buildings and they are not all in Red Oak... watch this space for some rather interesting terrain pieces coming your way!

      Smaller scatter terrain pieces are something currently on our development board for future releases too.

    • Thank you for the clarification. To be included in the FAQ? Or waiting for 1.09? Or both?
    • Kazimierz  Knoxville, TN, USA First game of WWX scheduled 2/15/19. T-3 days to first game... Sci fi  City  in Knoxville, TN.  Great place for all types of games and comics. I'll let you know what my favorite miniature is later.  Starting WWX with Hex.  No other Warcradle games at this time. Currently playing various historical games.  GW refugee; played 1 GW game in the last 14 years, but can't get rid of my figures.  Will play historical, fantasy, scifi, whatever...  
    • I've had a sit down with Chris and it would be half of your total FORCE that can be placed in reserve
    • Good news   Here is where the gold is.   My favorite ship from the old 2.5 is the terror ship. I'm looking forward to see what you guys have done with it statswise?
    • Question... about Reserve deployment.   "When deploying your Force, you may choose to keep back up to half the number of units in your Posse." (p.24 in v1.08)   If you have two posses both with five units each within your Force, how many of each posse can you put in reserve? Please clarify if any, some or all of these situation are correct...   A. Only 2 of 5 units of each posse can be placed in Reserve.   B. 1 of 5 units of the 1st posse and 4 of 5 units of the 2nd posse can be placed in Reserve.   C. All of the 2nd posse (5 of 10 units total) can be placed in reserve.   x-posted to Dark Council FB and Discord
    • Thanks for the transcript but I notice it seems to miss out a couple of tidbits I caught.  1. A mention of a WWX expansion into the rest of the Dystopian world seemingly called Beyond the Wild West and 2. That the answer to my question was that weapon systems would have the same stats regardless of faction, while the rest of the answer made the point of other forms of differentiation would be used.

If you're interested in a specific game and would like to skip straight to questions asked about that system, take a look below, as we've included a summary for each!

We have plans for a number of Wild West Exodus buildings and they are not all in Red Oak... watch this space for some rather interesting terrain pieces coming your way! Smaller scatter terrain pieces are something currently on our development board for future releases too. Can we expect regional qualifiers for future tournaments leading up to an official US championship? We were overwhelmed by the amazing response we have had to the Gunslinger Masters event being held at AdeptiCon this year. It took us a little by surprise and, one solution to that would be to hold regional tournaments as qualifiers, this is something for us to look at for next year.   DYSTOPIAN WARS When can we expect to see Dystopian Wars released and when can we expect to see new models? We do not have a confirmed release date at present but we are aiming to give a confirmed date very soon, when you can expect to see both the release of the rules and some new models at the same time. Speaking of rules… Is there an update regarding the rulebook promotion being run for Dystopian Wars Third Edition? Our free rulebook promotion is still up and running and, if you haven’t signed up yet, there’s still time! We will be giving plenty of notice on our social media channels as to when the registration process is closing but we advise to sign up now rather than later. For those people who have signed up already, we have all of the details captured and stored for all customers who have signed up for the free rulebook. More importantly, as soon as the rulebook is printed and ready to go, we will get the books out to the community. Will Dystopian Wars have a two-player starter set like Red Oak for Wild West Exodus? Yes, we have some exciting developments in plastic in the pipeline which will include a new two-player set, in the future. A bit more in-depth: will there be different stats for the same weapon system for different factions eg turrets, broadsides and torpedoes? We want to have a clear differentiation between the factions, this will include unit stats, weapon choices and configurations, as well as the different units themselves - to name but a few. What we do not want to happen is to have all factions inherently the same, the small differences make a game interesting (and your faction more unique) and we can think of nothing better than that! Our feelings on critical hits in Dystopian Wars. We certainly feel that the critical hits are heading in the right direction and the Beta feedback is in agreement. Remember, we are still running our open Beta if you want to get involved with the Third Edition of Dystopian Wars.   FIRESTORM ARMADA What updates can you give us on the new edition of Firestorm Armada? We have no date for the new edition of Firestorm Armada at present but we hope to release more information about the Firestorm Armada Beta soon. We’ve had some questions about model count in the new edition and we can say that we want to make the game easy to scale. Firestorm Armada needs to scale well as, like many games, some players enjoy smaller, quicker games and others want weekend-long epic battles. As with Wild West Exodus and Dystopian Wars, we will ensure that it is playable and enjoyable whatever size battle you choose! One of the aspects we are really focusing on is making each faction stand out from the rest, both aesthetically and in game play, as it’s something that our community enjoys. Allowing players the ability to customise their units is definitely high up on our "want" list for Firestorm Armada. However, the game is still in the early stages of development! Once the open Beta is released we can talk about the system and all its many wonders… Keep an eye on the Warcradle Studios Facebook and Twitter pages for announcements, as well as our forum and of course, the blog, in order to keep up-to-date with news on Beta releases and more. Can we expect a novel full of the new background material? It is still something we are interested in doing BUT we cannot divulge any more information than that at present.   WARCRADLE CLASSICS Are there any more releases planned for Warcradle Classics? We are currently working through the resin moulds and are starting to get to the metal miniatures so you may see the Warcradle Classics range growing. This range is continuously ‘in flux’ and you will be able to find all current available miniatures on Wayland Games Ltd, and your FLGS will be able to contact our trade team where they can order this range into store.     View the full article

    • That is exactly what I needed to read Stuart. Now if you could just condense the units lists as having that many bland units for all those factions when they're really not needed (as is why have eight factions with twenty ships each that are the same?  Just have three factions or so?) But now we know.
