Wild West Exodus: March Pre-Orders
Two new posses, and more, for March 2019! What an exciting month we have ahead!

We have the pleasure of releasing two brand new posse sets - one for the Enlightened and the other for the Outlaws , both of which received high praise from the Wild West Exodus community when they were shown as sneak peeks in 2018. For the Enlightened players out there, we have Discordant Symphony which sees Thomas Edeson with his beautifully dangerous Mina, whereas for the Outlaw players we have The Golden Army featuring none-other than Pancho Villa, Heraclio Bernal, Rosaria Mendes and Catalina Romero.

And that’s not all…

Alongside the new and improved Order Tumbler for the Order , Warrior Nation players can now add more grey brothers of the mountain, the Hunting Wolves, to their posse - perfect extra support for last month’s release, the Hour of the Wolf posse. PLUS the Spirit Totem set is now available on pre-order too.

And lastly, but by no means least, you can now pre-order Nakano Gozen! Having played her part as our very special event miniature, the Emissary of the Blazing Sun will be released on March 30th along with the rest of this month’s pre-orders.

These items are available to pre-order from us, or your FLGS, and as always, be sure to check out all of this month’s pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of our new Wild West Exodus products.

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.


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!


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.
