Wild West Exodus August Pre-Orders
Well, well, well, August sure does look jam-packed and full of Wild West Exodus delights... Let's not keep you hanging too long though - time to dive straight in!


The Dark Nation Posse, led by the corrupt and wraith-like Wicasasni, is the second Posse set to be released for The Hex. The Dark Nation Posse is now available to pre-order alongside the Secret Service Posse, lead by none other than Abraham Lincoln himself (wielding an axe, of course).

Hex players will be able to pre-order the Hexalith, an artefact imbued with the essence of the Hex, which was previously only available in the Absolute Power Posse. 

We can also announce that the Divine Intervention Starter Set and the Absolute Power Starter Set are available to pre-order from Warcradle Studios from today! These sets include everything from the previously released posse sets, with the addition of the Rules & Gubbins Set.

UK Gunslinger Masters at Tabletop Gaming Live!
In September, Tabletop Gaming Live 2018 will see the inaugural UK GUNSLINGER MASTERS event for Wild West Exodus!

At Tabletop Gaming Live 2018, you’ll be able to take part in the Warcradle Studios officially run UK Gunslinger Masters event for the chance to win glory for your Faction! The fact that you’ll be in for a chance to win some epic prizes AND get to meet the Trailblazer team (Daz and Craig cannot wait to meet you all) is a very happy bonus, I’m sure.

So, first things first, all participating players will receive a gold Fortune Chip (fancy, eh?) and will be in for a chance to win all sorts of goodies.

Not only will the top three players receive the very shiny (and highly coveted, might I add) Gunslinger badges, which they will proudly be able to wear around the convention and beyond (go on, make your opponents drool with envy when you get back home), the top three players will also receive a voucher (£50 for placing First, £30 for placing Second, and £20 for placing Third) to spend at Warcradle Studios’ Tabletop Gaming Live stand.

Those who place first will also receive something very special indeed…

How special? Well, while we don’t want to spoil the surprise, we will say that the trophy will not be available anywhere outside of official Gunslinger Masters events - you really do have to be in it to win it!

Make sure to book your tickets quick to take part in the first ever UK Masters and get your name in the Wild West Exodus Hall of Fame.


Tickets are available from the Wild West Exodus website which gains you entry to Tabletop Gaming Live and the UK Masters Tournament, you will not need to purchase a separate entry ticket to the event.

Check out the Gunslinger OP PDF for more information on Gunslinger Tournaments.

Paintin' the Town (insert colour)
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).

STEP ONE


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.

STEP TWO


To increase the 3D effects, once again, I go in with white. 

STEP THREE


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.

STEP 4


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.

STEP 5


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'!

You can find all of the Red Oak terrain on our online store here, or from your regular FLGS or online stockist!

Vignette #9 - Apology
Doc Holliday has a secret addiction. A problem, even.

Now, that seems very likely, given how quickly he has worked his way down the bottle of bourbon sitting on the table in front of him. Although you’d be forgiven for guessing alcohol as your answer, you’ll not hit the mark on this occasion. Try again.

Acquisition of Red Beam Designs
Wayland Games are pleased to announce they have acquired Red Beam Designs, as part of the product range from Warcradle Studios.
