  3. The time has finally come to announce our October releases so, without further ado, let’s get right down to it… The Outlaw faction is getting extra reinforcements this month with two brand new posse sets. Will you choose the incredible Conquistadores Posse? Led by the noble, yet delusional, Ponce de Leon the conquistadores believe that they have achieved eternal life... Or is the Faithful of Castilla more your style? Madre Monica Perez and her posse are a lethal retinue indeed! The Confederate Blackhoof Scouts have also been released for the Outlaws! This set now contains a two Blackhoof Scouts, maybe it's time to add these riders and mounts to your posse? The Union will be happy to see the fearless and dashing Armstrong Custer, along with his many, many, soldiers, in the Forlorn Hope Posse. Custer is a force of nature to be reckoned with - and has charisma enough to inject even the most weariest unit with morale. Last, but most definitely not least, is the Wendigo for the Hex. We are happy to be bringing this unit back for players to purchase and at a much better price too (dare we say)! All of this month's pre-order products are released on October 27th - make sure to pre-order from us, or your FLGS, to stay current with Wild West Exodus. As always, make sure to check the whole of this months pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of our new Wild West Exodus goodies! The Conquistadores Posse Of all the outlaws operating on the Union Frontier, the story of Juan Ponce de Leon and his Conquistadores is by far the most incredible. Ponce de Leon is a nobleman with a delusional mind. Having emerged from the Florida coast with claims that he is the very same man who set out in search of the Fountain of Youth nearly three hundred years ago, he believes that he and his Conquistadores have been granted eternal life and, with them, he now explores this new world like a travelling lord. Along the way, he has broken countless laws and found himself righting wrongs where he finds them - upholding his view of justice where he can. The Conquistadores Posse contains 4 multi-part resin miniatures and 2 multi-part plastic miniatures; 1x Juan Ponce de Leon 1x Ines Suarez 1x Amadeo Savoia 1x Juan Nuevopuerto 1x Brothers Pizarro 1x Esteban el Bruto 6x Bases Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £38 Faithful of Castilla Posse Emerging from the Mexican hinterland with her posse of armoured Conquistadors, Madre Monica Perez is a woman of deep faith. Like Ponce de Leon, she claims to who have set out in search of the Fountain of Youth nearly three hundred years earlier. Whether one believes these claims or not, the Faithful of Castilla are fanatically loyal to her and make for a lethal retinue. While many see the Blackhoof as an obsolete mode of transport, the Faithful have proven adept in the saddle of these temperamental automa. Together with their mechanical steeds, the Faithful of Castilla are the self-appointed defenders of the oppressed. Such a defence often brings Madre Perez and her posse to the thickest of the fighting in the Badlands. The Faithful of Castilla Posse contains 4 multi-part resin miniatures; 1x Madre Monica Perez 1x Patricia Monaguillo 1x Ricardo Fortuna 1x Eduard Costa 4x Bases Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £38 Forlorn Hope Posse If a man is defined by his actions, then Custer is the epitome of all that young men and women strive to become. Fearless. Generous of nature. Brilliant. Dashing. Impetuous. Dangerous. Possibly even just a little unhinged. The realisation of this fact comes too late, usually at the moment the enemy’s gun barrel is pointed squarely at them. Armstrong Custer was born into a world that needed a man of his calibre, a chance or quirk of Fate that made sure he was there when the Union needed him most. And yet, despite what some consider the exterior of a braggadocio, he remains staunchly humble and refuses to accept praise, instead deferring to those men and women serving under his command. He rose through the Union ranks swiftly, demonstrating an ability to follow and lead with equal enthusiasm. His inherently likeable nature coupled with one of the most brilliant strategic minds ever seen ensured that he accelerated through to the rank of General as fast as he could stitch his stripes onto his uniform. He is a force of nature: an inspirational and highly motivational speaker who can inject morale into the weariest unit. Something of a traditionalist, Custer leads the charge – and he will always lead the charge - primarily armed with his well-honed and always razor-sharp sabre. But he is not adverse to unloading both of his blaster pistols when a challenge presents itself. And Armstrong Custer never refuses a challenge! The Forlorn Hope Posse contains 1 multi-part resin miniatures and 20 multi-part plastic miniatures; 1x Armstrong Custer 5x Union Armoured Riflemen 5x Union Armoured Guard 5x Union Riflemen 5x Union Skirmishers 21x Bases Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £38 Confederate Blackhoof Scouts The Confederate Rebellion, such as it is, lacks many of the resources even settlers in the Frontier take for granted. Driven into the bayous and wilderness by the Union’s occupation of the Southern states, the Rebellion must avoid all but the smallest of hamlets; lacking the funds to take advantage of even the most sympathetic of suppliers. As such, heavy vehicles are few and far between to aid their cause. For mobility's sake, those few rebels that do need a mount make do with the temperamental and almost obsolete Blackhoof. Over the years rider and mount have formed a bond as strong as between any partners in strife. These mechanical horse automata have proven to be well suited to the dense terrain the rebels operate in and are far quieter than any Iron Horse or Interceptor. The Confederate Blackhoof Scouts set contains 2 multi-part resin miniatures; 2x Confederate Blackhoof Scouts 2x Bases Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £18 Wendigo The Wendigo are the lore keepers of a world long since past. They are part of an exotic and ancient breed of creatures known collectively as the Carcosa. Their mythology speaks of the Carcosa being the true inheritors of the Earth, the first people created by the Great Spirit in ages past. But, so the story goes, the Great Spirit was ashamed by the Carcosa's bestial nature and abandoned them in favour of creating a more perfect inheritor, the mewling and myriad humanity. Competing for resources in those early days, the human usurpers hunted the Carcosa almost to extinction. Now their kind has been reduced to a mere handful scattered across the world and so the Wendigo and their Carcosa kin have allied themselves to the Hex. The Wendigo now use their tales of betrayal and abandonment to fuel the telling of a final story for the Carcosa - a tale of revenge and retribution on humanity. This product contains 1x Wendigo 1x Base Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £25 View the full article

    Vignette #11 - On the Rocks

    The bar brawl was over before it had really begun. At its outset, it had looked to be one of those fights that spilled out of the doors and into the dirty street, but it had somehow – perhaps miraculously – remained contained within the No 10 Saloon’s walls. It had been brief, brusque and brutish; fists rather than shooting irons, angry words rather than knives, but regardless of the lack of lethality, it had certainly left its trail of casualties. The fight’s instigator stood among the groaning pile, hands still tightly clenched into fists, eyes flashing with danger signals that meant nobody else wanted to go close. The tension was palpable and heavy with the anticipation of more violence. Then, as suddenly as the fight had started, the cloud of rage lifted from the brawler and the air cleared. A protracted silence settled across the saloon but it did not take long for the bystanders to return their attentions to various drinks, card games or conversations. Gradually, the hubbub of normality overwrote the intensity of fighting and everything was fine. Saul the bartender, who had seen all nature of fights break out in his saloon, sighed softly. Huffing slightly, he squeezed his portly frame out from behind the long bar to begin the irritating business of picking up the five wounded men and dispatching them with all haste to the town’s doctor. Two of the regular barflies began to protest uproariously at the departure of their supplier, but he flicked his towel at them and they quietened down. Saul’s attention was on the victims of the skirmish. Four of them were fine, with nothing more than tinnitus ringing in their ears from what was an impressive – and repeated – right hook. The last unfortunate soul required support from two of his friends to get up. The swelling on his nose suggested that it was broken and from the wincing on his face with every step, it seemed that his attacker’s kick had connected squarely with its target, temporarily granting him, no doubt, an extraordinarily excellent soprano. Saul ushered the men out of his saloon, satisfied that their prides were far more beaten than their physical selves had been. As the saloon doors swung back to position, he took a deep breath and turned. The Ten, as the locals called it, had resumed its usual level of bawdy good-naturedness; someone was playing a bright melody on the horrendously out-of-tune piano and for a worrying moment, it looked like a sing-along might break out. Saul could deal with bar brawls and did so on a frequent basis. Toneless singing on the other hand… His ears were saved. Nobody sang and the melody melted into background noise. Small mercies. Saul turned his attention to the final fighter, the one who had been at the centre of the short but effective tussle. He narrowed his eyes and was rewarded with a beaming smile. “Are you quite finished? Only I’ve generally found I get a better night in takings when my clientele ain’t passed out on the floor.” “I’m done, Saul.” The bartender tipped his head to one side, hands on his hips. “Don’t you ever get tired of fightin’, Jane?” The woman known locally as ‘Calamity’ Jane threw back her head and laughed. She was the owner of an extraordinarily infectious laugh and despite his annoyance, Saul found that he could not help but smile. “Short answer, Saul? Nope. Ya gotta hold your own when ya head out into them there mountains. An’ if provin’ I got what it takes to look after myself when pups like that try it on? Then no sir. I won’t ever get tired of fightin’.” She ran her fingers through her dirty, tangled hair and beamed at him. He softened. It was difficult to remain angry with her. Like kicking a mischievous pup. Saul was fond of her. Most people in Deadwood were fond of her. She was the product of a hard upbringing and a harder adult life. But she’d found purpose at last, serving under the steadying hand of ‘Wild’ Bill Hickok. Rumours abounded that she had developed a schoolgirl crush on the ranger, but anybody who ever dared suggest such a thing to her face ended up… well, like the four men he’d just seen off the premises. Whether she created calamitous disaster around her or not, you absolutely had to admire a woman like that. “Bourbon?” “Damn straight. Make it a double.” As hard a drinker as she was a fighter, Saul knew from lengthy experience that Jane could easily have drunk most of the men here under the table and back up the other side. Locally, she was liked for her easy manner, her generous heart and her childlike enthusiasm. When strangers came into town and encountered her for the first time, they learned quickly that treading carefully was wise. If they made inappropriate advances – to her or any of her female friends, of which she had plenty – or if they passed factious commentary on Jane’s choice to dress comfortably and practically like one of the townsmen, then Saul steeled himself for trouble. That trouble never last long, though. Jane dealt with such matters quickly. Violently, yes, but quickly. She downed the glass of Old Overholt in a single shot, upending the empty glass on the bar. When she’d first picked up a glass of the amber liquid, the taste had made her gag violently. Now she joined many others in this part of the country who preferred the purity of bourbon to the often brackish water that came from the wells. Saul paused only momentarily before she turned the glass back upright. “Hit me.” Saul poured again. The drink disappeared just as swiftly as the first. He was about to upend the bottle for a third time when a newcomer swung open the doors of the saloon. He was a big man, broad-shouldered and solid and he certainly filled the doorway with his physical presence. But it was the man’s cool, eagle-eyed stare that held the attention most. Ice-blue and cold as the frozen wastes of Antarctica, Bill Hickok was not a man to suffer fools gladly. Or at all, for that matter. The barkeeper shot a glance at Jane who had stopped drinking and was attempting, without much success, to fix the bird’s nest that was her hair, to pat it into some sort of order. For a fleeting moment, the hard drinkin’, tough fightin’ exterior gave way to the vulnerable young woman beneath. She offered up a tentative smile as Hickok’s eyes landed on her. For a fleeting second, he smiled back, then the expression faded as he took in the freshly colouring bruises on her face and the blood on her knuckles. He sighed. “We were meant to head out ten minutes ago, Jane. Hop to it.” With that, he turned and strode off again, the tails of his long coat flaring out behind him. The lingering sense of crushing disappointment at her mentor’s disapproval was palpable enough that Saul reached over and patted Jane’s hand. “I’ll have one waitin’ for you when you get back, Jane.” She glanced at him and smiled, the moment of sadness gone. “Every gal needs a man like you in their life, Saul.” He watched her go and fought back the rebellious, borderline mercenary thought that crept into his mind. And every bartender needs a customer like you in their life, Jane. View the full article

  8. With the 10th anniversary of Wayland Games Ltd approaching, Warcradle Studios (the publishing and manufacturing arm of Wayland) were tasked to create a brand new miniature for Wild West Exodus to celebrate this epic occasion. Never ones to shy from an opportunity, the Studio team swept into action to design something very special indeed… We present you with a brand new strategic unit for Wild West Exodus: Wayland the Smith (and Beck too, of course)! Wayland the Smith - 10th Anniversary Set Many a fireside tale includes the appearance of Wayland the Smith. Often such stories feature a desperate and lonely rider who suffers a malfunction with her Iron Horse or the machinery of a struggling mine fails and the town faces ruin. Wanting no reward, save for a silver dollar if it can be spared, this man of legend appears from the horizon and fixes the problem. Before more than a thank you can be uttered, the stoic giant is on his way again, never staying in the same place for more than a night once his work is done. Wayland is an impressively large man with a strength as formidable as the steel with which he plies his trade. Often he lends a hand along with Panday Beck, his erstwhile assistant, who is seldom far from his side. What the fates have in store for Wayland as he roams the Frontier, who can say? Certainly, while Wayland doesn’t go looking for trouble, his journey has taken him to some of the highest and lowest of company. Even the alien Watchers and scheming Hex and Order have had reason to be thankful for his intervention and assistance. Quite how this mysterious wanderer can aid such wildly differing factions is but one further mystery that adds to his legend. Wayland the Smith - 10th Anniversary Set contains two multi-part resin miniatures: 1x Wayland the Smith 1x Beck 2x Bases. Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £20.00 Are you a retailer or distributor interested in the Wayland the Smith - 10th Anniversary Set amongst other Wild West Exodus products?

  10. Some men and women earn their own legends and, in this month's releases for Wild West Exodus, this statement has never been truer. 'Wild’ Bill Hickok, the charming storyteller extraordinaire, is now available with the rest of his Ranger Showboat Posse! Like so many of his ilk, Hickok fell into the role of Lawman without intending to, becoming a true Ranger and master of the rifle and pistols. Over his years out west, Hickok has taken others under his wing, training them in the arts of wilderness living and tracking - find Grace Myrtle, and all those who form his legendary Ranger Showboat, on pre-order today. Countess Augusta Byron barely needs an introduction, her towering and memorable presence overshadows us all. Even amongst her fellow Enlightened Peers, the Countess is looked upon with a peculiar blend of awe and fear, having improved herself to such a length that no-one can recall how she once looked. The Countess and her fearless army of Creations can be found in the new Galvanic Mysteries Posse Box. Alongside these brand new posse boxes for Lawmen and Enlightened factions, we also have the Weylyn Spirit Walkers for the Warrior Nation - these wolf-kin are sure to sow dread and terror in the hearts of their enemies! Are you building your own Red Oak town for your tabletop? Make sure to get your very own Red Oak Saloon! After all, where else are you going to find a place to conduct dodgy deals and grab a drink (or three)? All of this month's pre-orders are released on September 29th - make sure to pre-order from us, or your FLGS, to stay current with Wild West Exodus. As always, make sure to check the whole of this months pre-orders so you don't miss out on any of our new Wild West Exodus products. GALVANIC MYSTERIES POSSE One could be forgiven for taking Countess Augusta Byron’s perpetual air of melancholy as a symptom of her upbringing. After all, when one is raised around some of the most emotive and creative minds of their time, it is surely impossible not to absorb some of that need to create. All artists crave the perfect result, whether it be a musical composition that can reduce men to tears, or a painting so beautiful that not a single soul can step past without pausing to enjoy its beauty. The Augusta’s canvas is infinitely more complex. Her magnum opus is herself. If she shows an interest in a particular individual’s face or admires the length of their legs, that person is likely to witness firsthand her inconceivable feats of fleshcrafting. The Countess has improved upon her own person over the years until nobody – herself included – can even recall how she once looked. Presently, Augusta towers above the average woman, at seven feet in height, and although it could be argued that her entire body is nothing more than a patchwork, a mish-mash of disparate parts, it cannot be denied that the whole is striking and certainly memorable. The New York Tribune recently published an article cautioning the use of advanced technology as it may “corrupt the moral fibre of our society.” Should the experiments conducted by Countess Augusta Byron be made common knowledge there would surely be an outcry amongst those of a sensitive and civilised disposition. Even amongst her fellow Enlightened Peers, the Countess is looked upon with a peculiar blend of awe and fear. A pioneer in galvanism, the Countess often applies that peculiar science into forming reanimated Creations - a blend of flesh, steel and lightning that creates a creature many times greater than the sum of its parts. The Countess has been know to cosset her ‘children’, always seeking new and better methods for improving them and granting them longevity. With such a fearless army at her command and with the capacity to make as many as needed, she is a force to be reckoned with. The Galvanic Mysteries Posse contains five multi-part resin miniatures 1x Augusta Byron 1x Mantis 1x Creation V 1x Creation X 1x Creation XIII 5x Bases 9x Unit Information & Character Unit Cards Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are included and can also be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £35 RANGER SHOWBOAT POSSE Some men earn their legends. Others contribute to the legends of others. Some, like the Marshal known as ‘Wild’ Bill Hickok simply make their own legends up and recount them for anybody who will spare the time to listen. Hickok is a charmer; a storyteller extraordinaire and a man well versed in what the renowned showman P T Barnum would call ‘the noble art of humbug’. He knows well the magic a good yarn can bring to others, having spent some considerable time with a travelling show in his younger years. His marksmanship skills were as sharp then as they are now and many a contented visitor would leave the show that night swearing that they truly had seen the greatest gunman on Earth. For all his dramatic tendencies and his overblown, often hugely exaggerated tales, Hickok is a canny, shrewd soul. Like so many of his ilk, he fell into the role of Lawman without intending to. When he first came out west, he did so with the intention of setting up a travelling show of his own, perhaps bringing entertainment to what he perceived as the poverty-stricken settlers of the frontier. Instead of the struggling little shanty towns he envisioned, he found flourishing settlements, rich with prospects, loaded with opportunity and marred by those who operated outside the law. Along with his friend and fellow former showman, Bill Cody, he excelled in the field of scouting and reconnaissance. As a young ranger, he discovered a love for this unexpected new career and when Cody headed back east, Hickok remained, eager to keep his skills as one of the newly-named Rangers sharp and focused. He grew strong and powerful, mastering the use of a rifle as well as his pistols. As the years passed, Hickok took others under his wing, training them in the arts of wilderness living and tracking. One young woman in particular – Grace Myrtle – has grown to be every bit his equal in skill and is in possession of a personality as big as his own. They have become confidantes, even good friends and he values her opinion more than he’d ever openly admitted. The stories of his own greatness that he told in his youth have long been forgotten, replaced with stories that are every bit as true as he tells them… mostly, anyway. Alongside Myrtle, Hickok continues to thrill his allies and enemies in equal measure bringing justice to those that need it most. Often Bill will find his paths cross with the mercenary Copelie Sisters, the dutiful Nate Berenger and the drunken but dependable Calamity Jane and together they form Bill’s legendary Ranger Showboat. Even with a job to do, Hickok is still fond of exaggerating and as long as he has a glass of whisky, a comfortable seat and a willing audience, he will still wheel out the showman of old and entertain a crowd with the wild tales of Wild Bill. The Ranger Showboat Posse contains six multi-part resin miniatures 1x Wild Bill Hickok 1x Grace Myrtle 1x Nate Berenger 1x Calamity Jane 1x Missy Copelie 1x Rebecca Copelie 6x Bases 9x Unit Information & Character Unit Cards Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £35 RED OAK SALOON SCENERY KIT No town in the Frontier is complete without a Saloon. More than just a place to grab a drink or rest your heels for a few hours, a saloon is a place where dodgy deals and even dodgier dealers can be found in ample supply. If you need to find yourself trouble or a troubleshooter, it's a safe bet that both will come through the Saloon eventually. This Wild West Exodus Scenery kit contains: 1x Red Oak Saloon Building Assembly Instructions Please note: Scenery items are manufactured in Medium Density Fibre Board (MDF). Buildings are supplied primed and some assembly will be required. Price: £30 WEYLYN SPIRIT WALKERS Weylyn Spirit Walkers are brave men and women of the Warrior Nation who are able to connect with their guiding animal spirit, in this case, that of a wolf, and imbue their form with aspects of that noble beast. Often serving as shock troops for the Warrior Nation, these wolf-kin sow dread and terror amid the ranks of their enemies. The Weylyn Spirit Walkers kit contains two multi-part resin miniatures 2x Weylyn Spirit Walkers 2x Bases Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £15 All of the items in this announcement are available to pre-order now from your FLGS. Due for release on September 29th. What do you think of the new posse sets? Are you going to get yourself a Red Oak Saloon scenery kit? View the full article

We were lucky enough to have Parker, from The Battlehammer, fly out with us as a Warhost (interested, click here for details), and demo games of Wild West Exodus on our shiny new Dystopian Age demo table. For those of you wanting to see more, we've prepared a gallery below! From the stand to miniatures, sneak peeks for Wild West Exodus and Dystopian Wars, and our new Dystopian Age demo table, you'll be able to gander at it all. View the full article here .
