Let's take a look at the pre-orders for Wild West Exodus - due for release on May 31st - in time for the first day of UK Games Expo where those attending can purchase these new releases from the Warcradle Studios stand.
The time has finally arrived, The Wayward Eight sets are now available to pre-order!
With the end of the month drawing near, it's time to reveal the next set of releases for Wild West Exodus!
Warcradle Studios are very happy to announce that we have further expanded our global distribution range with the addition of Warlord Games to our ever-growing trade catalogue. Warlord Games are in good company alongside fantastic companies such as The Army Painter, Knight Models, Wyrd Miniatures, and Firelock Games.
Here's a quick step by step on how I painted the awesome new Wild West Exodus terrain!
To kick off, I undercoated the model black. No photo here (who needs a photo of a black building, after all).
Build up 3D effects with grey.
I use an airbrush but you can get very similar effects using a spray can. If you're using a brush, get a big ol' one inch round and stipple on the paint in thin layers.
To increase the 3D effects, once again, I go in with white.
Glaze the entire model with a Sepia Wash (approximately 7 parts water to 1 part paint).
I repeat this three times for a deep colour shift. I am still using the airbrush here but, if you do not have access to one, you can purchase weathering sprays which achieve a similar effect or go in with that big ol' brush - just don't let the glaze pool up.
Grab a decent sized brush and pick out individual planks with a selection of different brown washes.
For this model, I used a red-brown, yellow-brown, dark brown and black brown. I tend to make my own washes from P3 paint but there are loads of great alternatives out there. Once again, don't let the wash pool up.
Pick out the metallic areas. Take your time as it's very difficult to clean off slips. All metallic areas were painted in P3 Pig Iron.
The Brass areas were painted in P3 Brass Balls.
YOU'RE ALL FINISHED
These should look great on the table top for now!
I'll be looking at how to take things to the next level with weathering and detailing next time.
Until then - happy paintin'!
