  11. We announced Lost World Exodus this time last year and since then we have had releases of a number of products bearing the logo of Wild West Exodus’ forthcoming sibling. Naturally many of you are eager to know what 2020 holds in store for your Dystopian Age adventures in the Lost World of Antarctica. The icy windswept coast of Antarctica gives way to temperate jungles, valleys rich in minerals, titanic plants and the cries of strange creatures unlike anything seen elsewhere in the world. The reason for this incredible changed landscape is buried deep within the heart of this Lost World. The wreckage of an alien craft, lying dormant and waiting to reveal its secrets to humanity. “It is Hard to Fail, But it is Worse Never to Have Tried to Succeed” - Theodore Roosevelt As we have mentioned in an earlier diary, global health concerns mean we are facing a lengthy disruption to our plans for releasing Dystopian Wars. This, in turn, has a knock-on effect on the launch of other games from Warcradle Studios. That said, for Lost World Exodus (LWX) we always intended to launch the game slightly differently than we have for our other games because of the size and scope needed. Lost World Exodus features eight factions each with forces comprising of multiple detachments of units. While Wild West Exodus (WWX) has a greater focus on characters and individual heroics, LWX leans more into an experience featuring ranks of disciplined troops supported by specialist weapon teams and vehicles. A great number of units for LWX can be used in WWX as well because the games share a number of core rules and allow interplay between their factions. Because of this, the release schedule for LWX is designed to ensure players have as full an experience as possible when the game is finally launched. A number of current (and future) products bearing the logo of Lost World Exodus! We have already released a number of units and boxed sets in the Lost World Exodus range. These Detachments and characters are perfect for use with Wild West Exodus while also preparing the ground for a very exciting future! Throughout 2020 we will continue to release LWX branded sets so that when the Gubbins and Rules for Lost World Exodus are released next year, players will have a wide range of products to build their forces with as they battle across the changing landscape of Antarctica to seize the riches of this Lost World for themselves. One of the forthcoming releases that’s sure to be seen on a lot of tables is something very special indeed, our 2020 Promotional Miniature! “Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” - Theodore Roosevelt - Lost World Explorer There’s something comfortingly Dystopian Age about Theodore Roosevelt riding a giant lizard creature and serving as a Major in the Union army. Each of the Promotional Miniatures has summed up an important chapter in the Dystopian Age. Legendary Rani Nimue heralded the launch of Wild West Exodus, the first instalment in this expanding universe. 2018’s Nakano Gozen showed that there was a wider Dystopian Age still very much unexplored. 2019’s miniature, Jadzia Kosciuszko announced in spectacular fashion that Lost World Exodus was coming. Now we have the 2020 Promotional Miniature - Theodore Roosevelt, Lost World Explorer. Roosevelt encapsulates everything distinctive about the Dystopian Age and Lost World Exodus in particular. He’s an instantly recognisable character to so many, yet here he is depicted in a new and unfamiliar way. The 187X of the Dystopian Age is not the same as the 1870’s of our own history. The world of this Theodore Roosevelt is precariously balanced on the edge of a terrifying new age of unearthly technology and industrial empires. But Roosevelt is a man of vision and determination. He is a hero to the Union and lends his aid where he is needed most. Oh and to top it off, he’s riding a creature that looks very much like a dinosaur! So who is Theodore Roosevelt in the Dystopian Age? Born in 1854, Theodore Roosevelt was somewhat of a sickly child. To the young Teddy, as his parents called him, his weak constitution was something that needed to be challenged and overcome. In the aftermath of the Ore War, Roosevelt applied himself to a life of service, joining the Union military at seventeen. It was there that his exuberant personality, keen and varied interests, and robust masculinity quickly made him a favourite amongst the men and women he served alongside. Roosevelt was deployed to fight against Latin Alliance insurgents in Cuba as part of 273rd Cavalry Regiment, in a platoon known as the Rough Riders. Roosevelt’s success with the Rough Riders saw him promoted to First Lieutenant and platoon leader under Colonel Leonard Wood. Three years later, Roosevelt was a Major when the Rough Riders were deployed to Antarctica as part of the 12th Expeditionary Force. After the Union was defeated at Shirase Valley by a Japanese detachment, With their horses maimed or killed in the clash, Roosevelt provided an ingenious solution. He had studied the attempts by expeditions to domesticate a native saurian species know as Trodon. He agreed they would be suitable mounts for his cavalry and put his Rough Riders to the challenge. After several months of wrangling, Roosevelt led his first detachment of Trodon cavalry to repel a small skirmishing force of Canadian Blackhoofs that were attempting to break through to the Ross Ice Shelf. “In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” - Major Roosevelt at the Battle of Mount Erebus. After several small victories elsewhere, the battle of Terra Nova was a turning point for the Rough Riders and their Commander. Roosevelt led his Trodon mounted cavalry in a brilliant counter-offensive, disrupting supply lines and weakening the Celestian Empire’s gains elsewhere in the region. An avid writer, Roosevelt’s journals were seen as fit for publication by the army and soon Roosevelt was lauded a hero back home in the Union. Having been impressed with the lurid tales of the Rough Rider’s exploits and seeing the political capital to be made in the matter, President Andrew Johnson declared a both an Island in New York and one in Antarctica to thereafter both be known as Roosevelt Island in his honour. The battle of Mount Erebus proved that even a legend like Roosevelt was not infallible. Leading his Rough Riders as the spearhead for an assault by dozens of Union detachments, Roosevelt found that unexpected magma floes and bombardment by Crown icebreakers in the Ross Ice Shelf caused his force to be cut off from the main body of the Union advance. Facing a gunline of entrenched Crown marines ahead of him, Roosevelt refused to yield. Issuing a stirring speech to the men and women under his command, Roosevelt led the charge. His self-belief and determination to overcome any obstacle, dismissed as bloody-minded hubris by Commodore Wilkes in his later report, was not enough. The Rough Riders were slaughtered by the disciplined fire from the British. Roosevelt himself was carried from the field, one of only seventeen Rough Riders to survive that day. Returning to his home in New York, Roosevelt convalesced and married socialite Alice Lee. Despite surviving a court-martial for his role in the defeat at Mount Erebus, Roosevelt was disillusioned and considered resigning his commission. It was at Alice’s encouragement that Roosevelt pledged himself to some form of wider public service to the Union. He briefly considered a political career before settling on the idea of founding a volunteer cavalry corps. Initially training and deploying in the Badlands of North Dakota, this 1st Union of Federated States Volunteer Cavalry naturally became known as Roosevelt’s Rough Riders. Training at Roosevelt’s Trodon ranch in North Dakota, the outfit attracted an eclectic mix of Ivy League athletes, ballerinas, glee club singers, retired Rangers, naturalists, conspiracy theorists and Native Americans. This odd mixture of passions and talents were soon disciplined into a regiment that proved a worthy successor to the original Rough Riders and they saw deployment from the Dakotas to Arizona and Montana. It was with these volunteers that Roosevelt made history when he deployed Trodon cavalry in an attack to reclaim Tombstone from the renegade Enlightened warlord, Kyle the Black. But that is a story for another time… The 2020 Promotional Miniature: Theodore Roosevelt - Lost World Explorer, is available to purchase from the 26th March 2020 at www.wildwestexodus.com The miniature will remain available to purchase online until the end of the next show that Warcradle Studios attends. At the moment that looks like GenCon 2020 in Indianapolis, ending on the 2nd of August. Grab Teddy for yourself while you can! Stuart View the full article
  12. It's time to reveal the 2020 event miniature resembling a famous figure from history; it's Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt! Those of you that guessed correctly from the misty image we shared, bravo. Racing through the jungle on his Trodon steed, an incredible prehistoric-looking creature, Theodore Roosevelt is ready to venture into the wider Dystopian Age. You'll be able to purchase Theodore online direct from the Wild West Exodus website after 9:30 am (UK Time) on the 26th of March. At the moment, this miniature will be available to purchase online-only, due to the event schedule changing rapidly in line with the current Coronavirus situation - more on that below. There's no denying this is a magnificent miniature and an excellent addition to any collection, take a look: Theodore Roosevelt - Lost World Explorer “Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat." Price: £17.00 Theodore Roosevelt - Lost World Explorer, is the 2020 event-promotional miniature by Warcradle Studios. Just like Jadzia before him, Theodore's designed for use in both Wild West Exodus and forthcoming Lost World Exodus. If there are no events, how can I get the miniature? Of course, this year is a little more complicated as the event schedule is changing rapidly in line with the global Coronavirus situation. Both Adepticon in the US, and Salute in the UK, are cancelled for 2020. The next show we were going to attend, the UK Games Expo, is now rescheduled for later this year. We've worked hard to make the miniature available to players in a way that is fair but still keeps it an exclusive promotional release. The 2020 promotional miniature will go on sale online from the 26th March 2020 at www.store.wildwestexodus.com. The miniature will remain available to purchase online until the end of the next show that Warcradle Studios attends. At the moment that looks like GenCon 2020 in Indianapolis ending on the 2nd of August. Of course, this may change, in which case the 2020 promotional miniature will remain available online until the close of the show following that. As of right now, the next show we will attend after GenCon 2020 looks to be the UK Games Expo commencing on the 21st of August until the 23rd of August. What happens once shows are back up-and-running? At the end of the next show, Warcradle Studio attends, availability of the 2020 promotional miniature will return back-to-normal; the miniature will only be available for the duration of each show we attend. For details about the events that we'll be attending during the 2020/2021 season, keep an eye on our blog and socials, and be sure to check the Warcradle Studios community calendar regularly.

  13. GenCon has only said that they are "monitoring the situation" with updates to come. So it's still on, for now at least. ZS
  14. We are still 4 months from GenCon. Given how quickly things have been changing so far, I wouldn't panic about it being canceled just yet.
  15. at this point it would be safe to say all iscanceled till further notice
  16. Greetings, I'm Darryl. I was not aware that Warcradle had done anything with Dystopian Wars after obtaining the IP, but I'm glad to see it's coming back (despite some misgivings I have, but that's another topic). I have Firestorm Armada and Dystopian Wars stuff, most of the models being back in California instead of here. But by happenstance, my Empire of the Blazing Sun naval fleet was here with me on the other side of the continent, which got me wondering what was going on with Dystopian Wars. I landed here as a result. I only remember that I have Sorylians and Terrans for Firestorm, though I think I nabbed some other odds and ends for it. For Dystopian Wars, I am equally unsure how much I have. I do know I have FSA, CoA, and (obviously) EotBS. But I also remember having Ottoman and Kingdom of Britannia models (but these too are back in California, so not entirely sure). Anyway, looking forward to whatever comes next for Dystopian Wars. I took a look at the beta rules and was pleasantly surprised by how clearly explained and streamlined they were compared to the prior editions of the rules.
  17. Our 2020 promotional event miniature is almost ready to come out of hiding, and we are excited for you to see it for yourselves. This year, the miniature is based on a famous figure from our own history. Can you guess who? View the full article
  18. Hi I'm new to the game and am wanting to build the earp family but cant seem to find the models for sale anywhere
  19. Sure thing. This is a weird year for conventions anyway. Catch you next time, @murphy'slawofcombat
  20. thanks I understand it may be prudent to skip this one and shoot for the next . it will give me more time to look ahead and plan . with a new job it may be a little hard to get off thanks again
  21. At this point, the only places to stay will be outside of downtown. There may be downtown hotels available, but they will be at premium prices. Assuming that the whole thing doesn't get cancelled. Stupid virus. At this point though, I think that August is far enough away that the Con will still happen. That's my hope at least. ZS
  22. Thanks for bringing this back. I had won a box of the priori and wyldborn on BeastsofWar and was just about to start when the game got cancelled shortly after. So it’s great to see this coming back.
  23. I am interested in coming but don't know the area and as of yet don't know if i can get the time off . also my wife may like to come along and see the sites . any ideas on places to stay near where GenCon. will be????
  24. The new Veydreth remind a bit of the Asari ships from Mass Effect, only with the holes side-on. The Sorylian look a little closer to the V1 ships than the later ones.
  25. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. The police force of Augusta in Maine would discover the terrible truth of this aphorism. Let’s learn more about the events that cursed the Brotherhood of Belial, an exciting new faction for Mythos… A sleepy city, Augusta had a low crime rate that was dealt with at a leisurely pace by the municipal police department. That is until one winter when a spate of vicious crimes hit the city leaving a bloody trail of destruction in their wake. Murders, beatings, rapes and numerous muggings were perpetrated by what appeared to be a small gang of deviants. More crimes were committed in the first three weeks of the spree than had been recorded in the previous three years. Worse still, the gang proved to be incredibly elusive despite the best efforts of Lieutenant Jim Dugan. With a string of commendations to his name from his time in Chicago, Jim was expected to break the gang within a week. Three months later, the stress was really beginning to show on Jim and his team. Sergeant Maria Marquez, Jim’s trusted second in command, was struggling to even get a name on the gang from her usual sources, let alone who they were or where to find them. Reports from surviving victims were confused and in some cases totally unbelievable. Accounts alternated between the attackers being hulking, inhuman brutes and yet others claimed that they simply vanished after the incident, something that was seriously being considered due to the lack of success in tracking down even a single member of the gang. Oliver Driver, the department’s dog handler, was added to the team in an attempt to use the two faithful hounds in the city’s service. Even the highly talented noses of Storm and Shadow were unable to get a trace on the perpetrators of these ghastly crimes. In the face of mounting public pressure, Jim needed results and was becoming desperate. Jim followed a hunch that led him and his team to a set of abandoned freight houses on the banks of the Kennebec River. A lead from his undercover officer, Florence Delaney, had put five of the initial crimes in that area and Jim wondered whether the gang was had been operating further afield over time. Sure enough, with his team in tow, Lieutenant Dugan finally discovered the gang had been using a rotting attic as their hideout. It was unsurprising, with the stairs having long disintegrated and the attic completely inaccessible, that the location had been overlooked in the initial investigation. Bursting into the hideout, the police officers stumbled across the suspects enacting some sort of bizarre ritual. Candles covered the floor and walls, blood was daubed on the rotten floorboards in intricate patterns. In the horror and confusion, Florence Delaney fired a burst from her Thompson machine gun and all hell broke loose. In the ensuing firefight, not a single member of the gang, who later were revealed to be called the Son’s of Belial, walked out of that warehouse alive. The injured and the dead were consumed by a raging fire that engulfed the structure. Despite lacking and solid evidence in the aftermath, the crimewave that had gripped Augusta immediately ended and commendations for the whole team were readily issued. But it is a fool who thinks that an ancient power like the chiropteran god Belial would not punish those who slaughtered their acolytes and disrupted their rituals. In that moment, every member of Jim Dugan’s fateful team was touched by Belial and marked as his playthings. Each officer was cursed so that they could only exist as things shifting in form, somewhere between the winged creatures of Belial’s realm and the darkened aspects of the people that they once were. Some, like officer Dan Flack, revelled in their new form, feeling like nothing was lost in the transformation and the curse of Belial was akin more to a gift. Bound into this Brotherhood of Belial, these transformations were uncontrolled and painful at first. But over time many of the department learned to control it and even use their newfound strength and abilities in the line of duty as they continued to try to serve the city. Such is not the purpose of the Bat God, however, and as the police under Jim Dugan’s command respond to criminality with their newfound preference for brutality and lethal force, they unwittingly continue to carry out Belial’s great plan in the Shadow War. Until next time. Stuart View the full article
