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.

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.
