  1. The November releases are now available to pre-order! Make sure to check out the Warcradle Studios Blog for more information.
  2. This month at Warcradle Studios, we’ve not only been busy preparing the latest pre-orders for Dystopian Wars and Warcradle Scenics, but also getting ready to announce our latest thrilling Wild West Exodus novel! Following the release of Sturginium Skies last month, and the original Two Player Starter Set Hunt for the Prometheus, you can now venture further into the Dystopian Age with Beyond The Sturginium Skies and Beyond The Hunt for the Prometheus. Will you seek to claim the Labrador Sea for either the Crown or the Imperium or are you prepared for a Commonwealth ambush on the Enlightened? It's time to choose your battle and fight. And the Dystopian Wars releases don’t stop there! With THREE new Battlefleets setting sail at the end of November, you have plenty of options to choose from for your next tabletop force. Union players will be able to add the Mexico Battlefleet Set to their collection, whereas Crown players have the Protecteur Battlefleet, and Sultanate players will be able to expand their fleet with the Retaj Battlefleet Set. Build your tabletop farmstead with the Buckhorn Ranch Set from Warcradle Scenics. Featuring a Silo, Stables, a Water Tower and more, you'll have everything you need to set the scene for games of Wild West Exodus. Due to be released at the end of November 2022. Dystopian Wars Beyond The Sturginium Skies The Labrador Sea had barely stopped roiling when the call for reinforcements went out. Both the Crown and Imperium lost vessels and both were too proud to leave control of the Labrador Sea to the other. Where they differ, however, is their response to the conflict. The Crown sent word to have a battlefleet assemble which is now on its way from the United Kingdom while the Imperium mobilised the Teutonic Knights and used its efficient logistical chain to assemble a battle platform, defended by Vitruvian Colossi, to maintain hold on the area before more support can arrive. The fight was thought to be over but it seems to have been merely a break in the storm. The Sturginium Skies boil with battle once again. Who will claim the Labrador Sea as their own, the Crown or the Imperium? This box contains: 2x Crown Cruisers (Can be built as either an Athelstan, Agincourt or Hotspur Class ship) 2x Morgana Assault Submarine 4x Excalibur Heavy Destroyer 2x SRS Token 2x Sets of Platforms 2x Hochmeister Vitruvian Colossus (can also be built as Metzger Vitruvian Colossus) 1x Wreck marker 1x Mine Marker 1x Rule Book 1x Campaign Book 20x Action dice 6x Critical dice 1x Token set Beyond The Hunt for the Prometheus After Helsinki Markov’s treachery stole the Prometheus away from its creators there has been a bitter rivalry between the Covenant of the Enlightened and the Commonwealth. Certain Peers of the Enlightened have decided to make an example of the Commonwealth for such an audacious heist and show that they have as much military influence as any of the Great Powers. As for the Okhrana, the Commonwealth Intelligence Service, they hope for more secrets of the age to be unlocked by luring the various automata and advanced enemy vessels into engagements that they can’t hope to escape from. With the plan of dissecting any captured inventions for reverse engineering. With the help of Mongolian offshore platforms and a web of false leads, the Okhrana have orchestrated for an Enlightened battlefleet to be in place for an ambush. The Commonwealth now has engineering marvels of their own in the shape of Vitruvian Colossi. Will the Enlightened fall for the trap or have the Commonwealth bitten off more than they can chew? This box contains: 2x Marena Vitruvian Colossus (can also be built as Kostroma Vitruvian Colossus) 4x Boyar Heavy Frigate 2x Sets of Platforms 2x Assault Machine (can be built as either a Ketos or Lotan Class machine) 2x Advanced Cruiser (can be built as either a Newton, Zumeena, Vesalius or Origen Class ship) 2x Enlightened Escort 2x Orca Token 1x Mine Marker 1x Wreck Marker 1x Rule Book 1x Campaign Book 20x Action dice 6x Critical dice 1x Token set Protecteur Battlefleet Set Huge submersible strike carriers, the Protecteur class was the brainchild of Canadian Frank Andrew Fleming and his assistants at the Davie Shipyard. The Protecteur uniquely combines the capacity of a large support carrier with the stealth and strike capabilities of an attack submersible. This box contains: 1x Protecteur Submersible Carrier 2x Canadian Frontline Cruiser (can be built as either a Newfoundland, Bonaventure, Halifax, Toronto or Yukon Class ship) 4x Orca Hunter Submarine 2x SRS Token Mexico Battlefleet Set The Testbed ship for Nikolai Tesla’s revolutionary Arc technologies, the USS Mexico is often sent into the heart of engagements against the enemies of the Union. The results of these engagements make for precious study material at The Pipeworks. The Union fleet has seen a number of technological improvements since the defection of Nikolai Tesla from the Imperium, and a significant overall increase since the end of the Ore War. Support Cruisers and Automata have all been upgraded by the creative team in the Pipeworks. This box contains: 1x USS Mexico 2x Union Support Cruisers Each Cruiser can alternatively be built as Discovery, Roanoke, California, Montgomery or Washington Class 4x RC-52 Patriot Automata 2x SRS Tokens Retaj Battlefleet Set Sinister vessels crewed entirely from the cult of the Order, the Retaj Portalship is beyond the limit of the scientific and engineering expertise of the Sultanate. Indeed it is beyond even the esoteric designs of the Enlightened. Able to create stable rifts in the aether and allow entire ships to pass through, these fantastic energies can be harnessed and repurposed most lethally. This box contains: 1x Retaj Portalship 4x Carolus Destroyer Wild West Exodus Lazarus Welcome to an alternate 1870s where the heroism and hubris of humanity in this era of steam and steel have unlocked secrets that the world was unprepared for, as super-science and alien technologies bring about an exciting and unpredictable age. The Dystopian Age. The Badlands of North America are a wild and dangerous place. It has been a generation since the end of the civil war, known as the Ore War, and the Union of Federated States has emerged as a dominant power on the world stage. But all is not as it seems and there’s something rotten in the prosperous frontier town of Provenance. The Union have sent Major Willa Shaw to investigate in an adventure that will see her cross paths with old friends and new and terrifying enemies. Can Shaw and her allies discover the origins of Lazarus before all hell breaks loose? 1x Softback copy of Lazarus Warcradle Scenics Buckhorn Ranch Set Buckhorn Ranch is a typical example of life on the frontier. It’s changed hands many times over the years, occasionally sold by a family who’ve grown too old to look after the place but more often through nefarious means. This set contains: 1x Farmstead 1x Lodge 1x Silo 1x Ranch Scatter 1x Barn 2x Stable There’s a little something for everyone in November, with so many exciting pre-orders available! Make sure not to miss out when they go live for pre-order on the 28th of October 2022 at your FLGS or Wayland Games Online.

  3. October releases are now available to pre-order! Check out the Warcradle Studios Blog for more information.
  4. October is a monumental month for us here at Warcradle Studios with massive releases for Dystopian Wars and Warcradle Scenics. Conflicts are escalated sky high in Dystopian Wars this month as the Sturginium Skies - Two Player Starter Set hits the tabletop. The first Two Player Starter Set for Dystopian Wars since Hunt for the Prometheus, Sturginium Skies sees the Crown’s Canadian air force defend against an incoming Imperium invasion. But the Dystopian Wars releases don’t stop there! The Empire begin deployment of Ika Colossi to ensnare their enemies with the Ika Colossus Squadrons, and the Akula Battlefleet Set offers the submarines seen in the Black Wolf Battlefleet Set separately. Get ready to furnish your tabletop with Paddle Steamers and rundown Manors as the Black Lake Bayou Set becomes available to purchase as individual terrain kits. Due to be released at the end of October 2022 Dystopian Wars Introduce a whole new dimension of combat to your games of Dystopian Wars this month with the aerial additions in the Sturginium Skies Two Player Starter Set. The Empire and Commonwealth also employ more reinforcements this month with the addition of the Ika Colossus Squadrons and Akula Battlefleet Set respectively. Sturginium Skies - Two Player Starter Set Perfect for brand new and entrenched players alike, the Sturginium Skies Two Player Starter Set offers a great way to jump into the action of Dystopian Wars with a mix of entirely plastic Aerial and Naval units with all you need to start playing the game. The great powers of the Dystopian Age are constantly testing each other’s boundaries, fighting for territory and resources. The Imperium has decided to make a push into the Labrador Sea, to claim some of the Crown’s Dominions in Canada. It was believed that in the face of an overwhelming military presence in the region, the Crown would yield and allow the fishing and gas fields to be ceded to the Imperium. Sturginium Skies not only provides everything you need for two players to start playing Dystopian Wars, but it also contains a campaign that showcases the beleaguered Canadian forces as they hold off against a powerful Imperium attack. Will Air Marshal Spottswoode and the 14th Rotor Expedition arrive in time to make a difference for the Crown? Or will Kommodore von Hoeppner and her Prussian battlefleets reach their target for the glory of the Imperium? This Starter Set will walk players through the rules of Dystopian Wars encounter by encounter, slowly building up to the final confrontation between the Crown and Imperium Forces. This Box Contains: 1 x Stark Imperium Skyfortress 2 x Kriegsturm Assault Airship 4 x Jaeger Aerial Fast Destroyer 4 x Aerial Escort 2 x Reiter Cruiser 4 x Sigimer Destroyer 3 x Prydain War Rotor 3 x Tintagel Battle Rotor 6 x Saxon Scout Rotor 3 x Newfoundland Attack Cruiser 6 x Orca Hunter Submarine SRS Tokens 1 x Rule Book (Revision 3.03) 1 x Campaign Book 2 x Victory & Valour card decks (60 cards each) 1 x Template set Ika Colossus Squadrons Since the creation of the first primitive maps, there have been parts of the world where monsters lay and sailors fear to wonder. The Empire have been inspired by this to create their own monstrosities of the deep. Marvels of engineering created not only to sow fear and doubt in the minds of their enemies but also to demonstrate the mechanical mastery of the Empire. Using the most advanced engineering techniques, by command of Empress Shinzua herself, huge automata in the form of giant squid have been successfully developed. The layered wax and silk cognition cylinders for these submerged creations are of a complexity that exceeds even those of the Enlightened. This box contains: 2x Ika Colossus (can be built as either a Kaiju or Okuforu Class Ika Colossus) 4x Chita Submersible Escort Automata Akula Battlefleet Set Flagship of the Black Wolf Mercenary Fleet and commanded by the charismatic Volodymyr Nikonov, the Death Bringer is feared around the globe. Stolen from the Enlightened during a presentation to the Tsar, Nikonov ensured the Death Bringer was an utterly unique masterpiece by destroying the blueprints and setting the shipyards ablaze. Extrapolated by Ukrainian engineers from charred blueprints of the stolen Death Bringer, the Akula is still the most powerful in the Ukrainian Submarine Command. One element that was successfully replicated was the Akula’s magnetohydrodynamic drive enabling the boat to approach virtually undetected before striking. This box contains: 3x Grand Submarine (can be built as either the Death Bringer or Akula Class ship) 6x Khyzhak Attack Submarines 6x Piranya Hunter Submarines Warcradle Scenics The Black Lake Bayou Set becomes available to pre-order in individual terrain kits this month, allowing you to customise the swampy scenery of your tabletop to match the theme of your wargames. Black Lake Bayou - Manor Built many years ago when the French had colonised the local area, the Manor at Black Lake was once a place of opulence where the well-to-do would dine and socialise. Since the Ore War, it has certainly lost its shine. While still an imposing building, it is now for a very different reason. Rumours of it being haunted and the now overgrown local flora make it creepy rather than captivating. The ‘ownership’ of the building has changed hands many times over the past years with everyone staking a tenuous claim from local moonshiners to Confederate remnants of the Ore War to Mme. Marie Leveau and her entourage. This last entry being the source of many of the macabre tales that seem to centre around this former location of luxury This set contains: 1x Black Lake Manor Black Lake Bayou - Paddle Steamer The Paddle Steamer in Black Lake must have had a name at some point but that is now lost to the lake, as is a large section of its hull. Whether by war, accident or the simple passage of time, no one seems to remember but it is now scuppered with anything of use torn from its rotting carcass. Despite this, there are still determined souls willing to risk their lives delving into the submerged hold, hoping to find the gold that was the prize in a forgotten poker tournament. No one seems to know if this was even real or not but those who search for it often find the bodies of those who went before them. Like those decaying corpses, this Paddle Steamer will eventually be consumed by the bayou, never to be seen again. This set contains: 1x Black Lake Paddle Steamer Black Lake Bayou - Boat House While in the grounds of the Black Lake Manor, this Boat House is rarely seen in the same place twice. This is made all the stranger given that no one seems to live there. Clearly, someone does but no living person has ever seen boarding or disembarking this crudely built dwelling. Even when gunfights break out between local bandits and lawmen, no movement is seen across the deck. If anything does make this haphazard construction its home, it seems to be able to sense trouble before it arrives and makes its way elsewhere. This set contains: 1x Black Lake Boat House Black Lake Bayou - Summer House The Black Lake Summer House has fallen into a state of almost total decrepitude. Years ago it might have been considered a picturesque folly for effete members of the family to make their dalliances, though like those once young and beautiful people its best days are far behind it. Now it is only home to wildlife and whatever transient creatures traverse the bayou at night. Very occasionally, the tree growing through the roof is used as a dead drop between whoever might be up to nefarious deeds and do not wish to be disturbed. This set contains: 1x Black Lake Summer House October looks to be one of the biggest months for Dystopian Wars releases with a brand new Two Player Starter Set, Sturginium Skies and much more! Make sure not to miss out when they go live for pre-order on the 30th of September 2022 at your FLGS or Wayland Games Online. Keep up to date with all the latest news and releases on the Warcradle Studios Blog and socials, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. View the full article
  5. September releases are now available to pre-order! Check out the Warcradle Studios Blog for more information.
  6. With September almost upon us that can only mean one thing, more new releases for Dystopian Wars and Warcradle Scenics that will be available to pre-order soon. The distinct whir of technology can be heard as the Enlightened power up the advanced weaponry found in the Archimedes Battlefleet Set. The marvels of the Enlightened are on full display as the Archimedes begins to impress, confuse and decimate. Ready to take a ‘swing’ at the competition, the Commonwealth are employing the use of their own Vitruvian Colossi to ‘cut’ to the chase and assure victory with the Marena Battlefleet Set. Reinforcements inbound as the Scandinavian Frontline Squadrons offer any Ragnarok Battlefleet more firepower. Available for the first time as individual terrain kits, the Red Oak Town Set 2 and Estun Village Sets offer you the perfect backdrop for any wargame. Due to be released at the end of September 2022. Dystopian Wars There’s lots of new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars this month as the Enlightened launch the Archimedes Battlefleet Set, the Marena provides exceptional power to the Commonwealth and the Scandinavian Frontline Squadrons enhance the Ragnarok Battlefleet. Archimedes Battlefleet Set Science marches onwards as the Archimedes gets ready to put on a show. This gigantic set showcases the latest advancements in technology with a wide array of impressive weaponry and serves as a perfect way to start an Enlightened fleet. A flagship of the Enlightened fleet, Vault ships were conceived as massive floating platforms to deploy their larger engineering and scientific marvels. In this manner, the Archimedes class is usually fitted with either a Callimachus Chrono-Lathe or Diophantus Chaos-Orb, both so intricate and sophisticated in their crafting that like much that is not understood in the Dystopian Age, they are considered magical by the uneducated. This box contains: 1 x Archimedes Vault Ship (can also be built as either The Shneider or Nansen Class ship) 2 x Advance Cruiser (can be built as either a Newton, Zumeena, Vesalius or Origen Class ship) 2 x Support Cruiser (can be built as either a Plinius, Tacitus. Claudius or Quintilian Class ship) 2 x Frontline Cruiser (can be built as either a Stiletto, Lovelace, Copernicus, Antarctica, Chatalet or Ulysses Class ship) 2 x Assault Machine (can be built as either a Ketos or Lotan Class machine) 2 x Enlightened Escort 6 x Merian (can also be built as a Germain Zebek) 6 x Submarine (can be built as either a Praxilla or Diogenes Class ship) 2 x Orka Token 2 x Physeter Token 2 x SRS Token Marena Battlefleet Set More Vitruvian Colossi are set to emerge from the murky depths, ready to lower its deadly axe on any unsuspecting vessel. That’s right, the Marena Battlefleet Set is here to continue the destruction that the Hochmeister Vitruvian Colossi started, but this time for the Commonwealth. The Marena Vitruvian Colossus is a wonder of engineering that inspires ice-cold fear in the hearts of the enemies of the Commonwealth. A towering sight on land and no less impressive at sea, it is as versatile as it is imposing. Its Mag-Rail Axe can be used to make crushing attacks that rain down upon enemy vessels or be launched at range causing a magnetic field that can stick a vessel on its current course. This can be particularly troublesome when combined with the Cryo-Generator that stands as the head of the machine, creating icebergs ahead of the opposing craft that it now may find itself impossible to avoid. This box contains: 3 x Marena Vitruvian Colossus (can also be built as Kostroma Vitruvian Colossus) 6 x Boyar Heavy Frigate Scandinavian Frontline Squadrons The Scandinavians are a group of proud naval nations in the Imperium. Their vessels are fabricated primarily by the Norwegians at Akers Mekaniske Verksted. This large shipyard produces huge numbers of Hoth Heavy Corvettes for use by the Scandinavians throughout the Imperium’s fleets. This box contains: 2 x Jotunn Assault Reaver (can alternatively be built as an Odin Reaver or a Gungnir Light Reaver) 4 x Hoth Heavy Corvettes Warcradle Scenics This month the Red Oak Town Set 2 and Estun Village Set will be available as separate terrain kits. Now that they are being offered as individual kits you can outfit your Red Oak Town or Estun Village as you envision it. Red Oak Create the perfect backdrop to host gunfights and saloon brawls that spill out onto the streets of Red Oak with the range or Red Oak individual terrain kits seen in the Red Oak Town Set 2. Red Oak Bank In the American frontier, the bank is not just a place to keep your dollars. Anything of value, from gold bars to family heirlooms, from Sturginium deposits to refined artworks can be safeguarded by the town bank. Such protection in the Dystopian Age does not come easily or cheaply, in times of crisis, the bank can be one of the most fortified and well-defended buildings in town - at a price. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Bank Building Optional signage for a Red Oak Town Hall Red Oak Cartwright The advent of the Iron Horse has been a boon to the scattered settlements of the American Frontier. Of course, even these wondrous technological marvels require maintenance and recharging from time to time. Cartwrights, like this one, offer affordable services to the good folk of Red Oak - certainly preferable to dealing with the Enlightened as their assistance often literally costs an arm and a leg… This set contains: 1x Red Oak Cartwright Building Optional signage for a Red Oak Delivery Office Red Oak Distillery Distilleries are an important part of any growing town. A booming industry in the Union frontier, it is highly lucrative being able to supply the good folk of the West a steady supply of hooch, rocket fuel and other more medicinal libations. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Distillery Building 1x Barrel Red Oak Gallows and Clock Tower Justice is often delivered in the Union Frontier at the end of a noose. This happens a great deal at the Red Oak Gallows and Clock Tower. In such turbulent times, these gallows are both a form of macabre entertainment and a warning to the citizens that lawlessness will not be tolerated. Legally, the execution can only be carried out at an appointed hour and only by a Lawman. Many outlaws have gone to their deaths, watching the clock tower as it ticks towards their final moment, waiting for a reprieve that never comes. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Gallows 1x Red Oak Clock Tower Red Oak Post Office While for the very wealthy, near-instant communications can be achieved through radio and other more esoteric means, for most the Post Office represents the only means of communicating with the world outside the town limits. Typical delivery was between a month and ten days, depending on the importance of the letter or package and of course the cost. The Post Office is an important place to not only send and receive messages but also for the local community to meet and share news as it arrives from the Union and beyond. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Post Office Building Optional signage for a Red Oak Doctors Red Oak Residence The Red Oak Residence is of a common design found throughout the settlements of the West. Cheap and plentiful timber is supported with steel joists and copper conduits so that homesteaders have access to all of the modern conveniences that the RJ-powered Dystopian Age can offer. These modern homes are always in demand, so act quickly to secure your very own piece of the West! This set contains: 1x Red Oak Residence Building Red Oak Town House The multi-levelled Town House is typical of the homes the more wealthy settlers inhabit out West. Not only does this bring about a new gameplay element with its size, the building itself is hugely customisable and is compatible with elements from the Red Oak Residence to create a truly unique set of buildings for your town. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Town House Building Red Oak Watchtower Dominating the skyline of towns like Red Oak, these watchtowers allow the residents to keep a watchful eye for the telltale dust clouds that announce the arrival of Iron Horses and the bandits who often ride them. With parts to assemble it instead as a water tower, the Red Oak Watchtower is a great addition to your table or even the centre point for one. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Watchtower Building Options to build a Water Tower. Estun Village Perfect for all your favourite fantasy wargames such as Frostgrave and Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms, create your ideal settlement with the range of Estun Village individual terrain kits Estun Village - Blacksmiths The Blacksmith of the Estun is one of the most revered men in the village. He may not be a warrior though he could certainly hold his own in a fight. Instead, he is held in such high regard for without him the whole village would fall into disrepair. Everything from nails to horseshoes to swords makes its way out of that glowing forge. This set contains: 1 x Estun Village Blacksmiths Estun Village - Church The Church is a place of welcome to all, no matter their faith. It has been this way for all time. The tree carved above the door has come to represent many things through the ages. The World Tree that connects the realms, the Sun God's influence on the earth below, even the Tree of Woe upon which the God-son was crucified. This set contains 1 x Estun Village Church Estun Village - Market No village can stand for long without trade and Estun is no exception. The Market Stalls are the vibrant hub of the village, with exchanges for goods and services happening almost constantly. Just as important here is the trade for information, stories diffusing from here as quickly as the smell of preserved fish. This set contains: 1 x Estun Village Market Estun Village - Saw Mill If there's one thing that the people of Estun can rely on, it's the forest. Food from anything the people can forage as well as game, protection from the blizzards that come down from the mountains, but most importantly the timber from the trees themselves. The Saw Mill processes much of this to build and repair the dwellings of the village's folk as well as trade with other villages. This set contains: 1 x Estun Village Saw Mill Estun Village - Tavern Even when all is quiet in Estun, the Tavern still has sounds of revelry. Mead, ale and wine from faraway lands are consumed by the hogshead. Life is hard in the mountains and everyone needs a place to ease the aching bones. Skalds know that they can pass through and get fed and watered for the price of a story. Can a village without a tavern truly be called a village at all? This set contains: 1 x Estun Village Tavern Estun Village - Dwelling The Dwellings of Estun are known for miles around. Well built and sturdy, just like the people of the village. The shields above the doors are not purely symbolic, though they do show that these folk are protected. This set contains: 1 x Estun Village Dwelling Estun Village - Watch Tower The Watch Tower has stood for longer than anyone can remember. Stories say that this was the first building in the village, a remnant from an empire long since fallen. Whatever the truth, horrors of all kinds have been spied from these ramparts. Without which, ambushes might have brought this settlement to its knees in ages past. This set contains: 1 x Estun Village Watch Tower There’s a massive amount coming to Dystopian Wars and Warcradle Scenics soon. What are you looking forward to the most? Make sure not to miss out when they go live for pre-order on the 26th of August 2022 at your FLGS or Wayland Games Online.

  7. August releases are now available to pre-order! Make sure to check out the Warcradle Studios Blog for more information.
  8. The rolling seas usher in a new wave of pre-orders this month for Dystopian Wars and Warcradle Scenics. For Dystopian Wars, The Black Wolf Mercenaries, led by the infamous Black Wolf himself, will soon be available to provide their services to the Commonwealth (as and when it suits them of course) with the Black Wolf Battlefleet Set. The Imperium also see a new nation come to their aid as Scandinavian support is at hand with the Ragnarok Battlefleet Set. Not to be overshadowed, the Alliance Levant Squadrons are sent forth to help launch an aerial assault following the recent release of the Magenta Battlefleet Set. The tumbleweed leaves Red Oak this month as once again the town erupts into a shootout. The Red Oak Town Set 1 will be available as individual terrain kits to help further customise your wargaming scenarios. Due to be released at the end of August. Dystopian Wars This month sees the introduction of the Black Wolf Battlefleet Set for the Commonwealth, the Ragnarok Battlefleet Set for the Imperium, and reinforcements for the Latin Alliance with the Levant Squadrons. Black Wolf Battlefleet Set Black Wolf is the nickname of the former Russian Commonwealth submariner and Commander of the prototype Death Bringer submarine, Volodymyr Nikonov. Though he usually operates under contract to the Commonwealth he now runs a large and powerful mercenary outfit. Funded, in part, by the Tsar himself, the Black Wolf Company have a reputation for daring assaults and sudden ambushes that make them a force to be feared the world over. Nikonov has a lifestyle and status that he believes befits him. He can see a future where he marries the Tsar’s daughter, Anastasia and claims the throne for himself. When not at court or in action Nikonov operates out of a converted gigantic Murmansk class vessel near Novo-Arkhangelsk. From this fortified harbour-ship he not only has safety but has established a planning room to help with the execution of even more daring raids for pleasure and profit. This box contains: 1x Anastasia (can alternatively be built as a Murmansk Mobile Stronghold or Tobolsk Mobile Stronghold) 1x Death Bringer (can alternatively be built as an Akula Grand Submarine) 1x Akula Grand Submarine 4x Khyzhak Attack Submarines 4x Piranya Hunter Submarines 4x Khatanga Cryo Assault Cruisers (Each Cruiser can alternatively be built as either a Morosko or Pravda Class) 4x Stoletov Ekranoplans 4x SRS Tokens Ragnarok Battlefleet Set Many Scandinavian vessels are fabricated by the Norwegian master shipbuilders at Akers Mekaniske Verksted, made possible thanks to significant Prussian investment. The Scandinavian attitude to naval warfare is epitomised by the Ragnarok. With a prow mounted Heavy Sturmbringer, and inbuilt Fury Generator the Ragnarok’s crew closes the distance fast to sow destruction amongst their adversaries, unleashing arcs of lightning that rip apart the target’s superstructure, rendering the stunned crew easy prey for boarding teams. This box contains: 1x Ragnarok Heavy Reaver 2x Jotunn Assault Reaver (can alternatively be built as an Odin Reaver or a Gungnir Light Reaver) 4x Hoth Heavy Corvettes Alliance Levant Squadrons The mainstay of the Levant style of ships is the Chasseur Levant Strike Cruiser. Their ability to soar above their enemies if need be makes them hard to precinct as does their various ways of being outfitted. Gun batteries, heat lances or force multiplying generators; even seeing a Chasseur on the horizon makes no guarantee what you might actually be facing in battle. This box contains: 2x Levant Cruiser: (Each Cruiser can alternatively be built as either a Chasseur, Furieux or Voliere Class ship) 2x Submarine: (Each Submarine can alternatively be built as either a Epaulard Artillery or Sirene Class boat) 2x SRS Token Warcradle Scenics Red Oak returns to the tabletop this month as your favourite buildings and features from the Red Oak Town Set 1 become available in their own separate terrain kits. Red Oak Bridge Set The bridge in the town of Red Oak is the only one for miles both up and downstream and could be considered a strategic point for anyone with military learning. In fact, given how many have been killed trying to cross it, whether entering or leaving town, the bridge might deserve a place in the history books. At least it would if anyone thought to write a history of Red Oak. This set contains: 2x Bridges Compatible with the Red Oak Saloon & Cat House 1x Pair of steps 3x Crates 3x Cranes Red Oak Cat House Giulianna Starr, proprietor of the Red Oak Cat House has her work cut out for her. Despite there being little in the way of trouble happening inside, thanks to her line up of ornery, repeat ornery, regulars, there’s often enough trouble just outside that spills into her domain. Whether that be bullets flying through windows and walls or the delay of a vital liqueur delivery thanks to a hold up in town. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Cathouse Red Oak Crates, Fences and Barrels Some of the more well-to-do citizens of Red Oak decided to have fences built around their properties and yards, thinking that it might protect them from the more unsavoury elements that pass through. They were mistaken. At least it stops the drunks from urinating in their backdoors. This set contains: 2x 5 Inch Gated Fences 5x 5 Inch Fences 3x Barrels 2x Large Lockboxes 2x Medium Crates 2x Small Crates Red Oak Crematorium The last place in town anyone wants to visit, and the inevitable last place they do visit, is the Red Oak Crematorium. It's an unusual site but the local Boot Hill was filled to bursting during the Ore War so most of the locals have got used to the foul-smelling smoke on Sunday afternoons. This set contains: 1x Red Oak "Scuffins & Sons" Crematorium Fully Detailed Interior, featuring; Conveyor Belt to external Mulcher 2 Levers A 'Tool Wall' Incineration Station 2x Advertising Signs "Second Hand Coffins, Dead Cheap" "Ask Inside for Used Boots" 4x Coffins 2x Large Communal Coffins 2x Single Coffins Red Oak Jail Despite the town of Red Oak being a place where folks of all kinds pass through, it’s the Jail that has seen more than its fair share of ‘celebrities’. Outlaws that have been the subject of dime novels all across the Union have ended up carving their initials into the walls of these cells. A few have even broken out. Though it’s not just Outlaws who become famous visitors. Wyatt Earp and other well-known Lawmen pass through, sometimes dropping off their latest quarry in the Jail until they can be properly tried and sentenced. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Jail Building Red Oak Metal Smith The Metalsmith in town is usually tasked with fixing some broken piece of equipment or other that most rough-and-tumble types don't have the smarts to look after properly. The townsfolk are untrusting of the local Enlightened representatives, even though they are happy to use their labour saving devices. What they don’t know is that the workshop is actually a subsidiary of the nearest Promethean Complex so all their hard earned dollars go straight to them anyway. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Metal Smith Building Optional signage for a Red Oak General Store Red Oak Prospectors Shack The one place in Red Oak that isn't busy is the Prospector's Shack just on the outskirts. Some say it's haunted and some say that Old Joshua just likes to keep to himself with the aid of a shotgun. Either way, most folks keep their distance. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Prospector's Shack Building 1x Prospector Wagon 1x Outhouse / Extension Red Oak Saloon The Red Oak Saloon is considered by many to be the dark heart of the town. The local law officials are spread so thinly over the territory that Outlaws and bandits can usually be found drinking and gambling in this perpetually open establishment. Even on a good night of well natured debauchery, violence can explode faster than an RJ bomb. There’s neither the veteran regulars of the Cat House nor the law abiding citizens of the other businesses to protect the peace of the Saloon. This set contains: 1x Red Oak Saloon Building Excited for what is coming soon for Dystopian Wars and Warcradle Scenics?

  9. Good morning, here is the assembly pdf for the Gunfight at Red Oak Starter, hopefully this is what you were looking for - https://www.wildwestexodus.com/assets/wildWestExodus/units/assembly-guides/STARTER_Gun-Fight-at-Red-Oak_Instructions.pdf
  10. July releases are now available to pre-order! Make sure to check out the Warcradle Studios Blog for more information.
  11. Strap in for takeoff this month; you won’t want to miss the latest pre-orders coming to Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics! Following the launch of the Oriflamme for Dystopian Wars, the Latin Alliance embark on an aerial assault with the release of the Magenta Battlefleet Set. Meanwhile, the Sultanate are deploying a more grounded reinforcement plan this month with the Sultanate Support Squadrons to back up any Sultanate navy. Grizzled by the Ore War and impelled by hatred, the Quantrill’s Raider Posse rides into Wild West Exodus to enact violence against the Union first and take names afterwards. In the depths of the Bayou sits the Black Lake Manor, a once luxurious estate that has laid dormant for many years now. Bring life, or death, back to the manor and bring your battles to the bayou with the Black Lake Bayou Set from Warcradle Scenics. Due to be released at the end of July. Dystopian Wars A whole new dimension of combat opens up this month as the Magenta hovers high above its opponents to cause trouble for those below. The Sultanate, seeing the need to rally their forces, calls for more reinforcements this month with the Sultanate Support Squadrons. Magenta Battlefleet Set Named after the Alliance victory against the Imperium in 1859, the Magenta class is the pride of Napoleon’s levant fleet. These powerful battlecruisers are capable of hovering a hundred metres or more above the sea bringing their powerful heat lances or other weapons to bear. The Saint-Michel Levant Assault Carrier is often the centrepiece of a Levant focussed battlefleet. Flight crews of the fighter craft that launch from Saint-Michel are often known as ‘Anges de la Mort’ as a matter of pride. The agility of the skimming Levant Carrier allows it to surge to great heights then descend upon the enemy as scores of ‘angels’ unleash the wrath of President Louis-Napoleon. This box contains: 1x Battlecruiser (can be built as either a Magenta or a Saint-Michel Class ship) 2x Levant Cruiser (can be built as either a Chasseur, Furieux or Voliere Class ship) 2x Epaulard Artillery Submarine 2x SRS Token Sultanate Support Squadrons The flight crew of Constantinople Carriers are rightly proud of their assignment. It is said that "the blood of a wingman is thicker than the water of the womb" and that is certainly the case for these pilots. These aerial combatants are like a close-knit family as they know they can only rely on each other once the fighting starts and they don’t let outsiders forget it. This box contains: 2x Support Cruisers (can be built as either a Constantinople, Mihrimah, Konya, Aydin or Morea Class ship) 4x Escort Skiff 2x SRS Token Wild West Exodus Rage boils over in the Wild West this month as the Quantrill’s Raider Posse are back to fight for the Outlaws in the name of the Confederacy, but this time it’s personal. Quantrill’s Raiders Posse To think that William Quantrill was once a teacher is almost impossible to believe. The man driven by hatred and violence is now spoken about only in hushed tones, often by the weeping widows he leaves in his wake. To him, the Ore War never ceased and he will only be at peace when the yankee blue-bellies are purged from this land in flame and death. At least that’s what he tells people who are brave enough to ask. There is a darker truth behind his eyes. Even before he was critically wounded in a Union ambush, he was known for the massacre of men and boys. He simply enjoys causing pain and terror to any who stand in his way. The story goes that it was only purest hate that willed him to survive the almost fatal wound he received at Wakefield Farm, though Enlightened medicine surely played its part. Now he has vowed to take revenge on every last member of the Union that he can. Soldiers or civilians, loyalists or former Confederates, Quantrill will have his pound of flesh and then some. This box contains: 1x William Quantrill 1x Georgia Maddox 1x Richard Maddox Warcradle Scenics Bring a bayou themed backdrop to your wargaming battles and host shootouts through rundown corridors and half-sunken boats with the Warcradle Scenics Black Lake Bayou Set. Black Lake Bayou Set Built many years ago when the French had colonised the local area, the Manor at Black Lake was once a place of opulence where the well-to-do would dine and socialise. Since the Ore War, it has certainly lost its shine. While still an imposing building, it is now for a very different reason. Rumours of it being haunted and the now overgrown local flora make it creepy rather than captivating. The ‘ownership’ of the building has changed hands many times over the past years with everyone staking a tenuous claim from local moonshiners to Confederate remnants of the Ore War to Mme. Marie Leveau and her entourage. This last entry being the source of many of the macabre tales that seem to centre around this former location of luxury. This set contains: 1x Black Lake Manor 1x Black Lake Boat House 1x Black Lake Summer House 1x Black Lake Paddle Steamer This month is packed full of so many exciting new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. What are you looking forward to the most? Make sure you don’t miss out when these go live for pre-order on the 24th of June 2022 from your FLGS or Wayland Games Online.

  12. June releases are now available to pre-order! Check out the Warcradle Studios Blog for more information.
  13. With the introduction of an eighth faction for Dystopian Wars last month, the big releases don’t stop as June sees new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. The Sultanate call for further firepower this month, following the introduction of the Anatolia, with the launch of the Suleiman Battlefleet Set. The newest faction to Dystopian Wars, the Latin Alliance, also request backup to escort the Oriflamme and are relieved to find the Alliance Frontline Squadrons en route. Nothing lasts forever in the harshness of the Wild West but family comes close. Through thick, thin and robotic replacement, the Earps have persevered with hardy resolve and are ready to show just how much family matters with the Vengeance of the Earps Posse for Wild West Exodus. Take your battles to the thriving village of Estun, a range of high quality scenics fit for any fantasy wargame. Available as a Terrain Set, the Estun Village Set, and the Estun Long Hall; Estun serves as a perfect setting for your tabletop. Due to be released at the end of June 2022. Dystopian Wars A new flagship for the Sultanate emerges this month as the Suleiman Battlefleet Set offers a dual-deck solution to strengthen your aerial presence. The fresh face of the French continues to grow as the Alliance Frontline Squadrons adds the perfect one-two punch to the recently released Oriflamme Battlefleet Set. Suleiman Battlefleet Set The twin decks of the Suleiman Fleet Carrier are replete with squadrons of Sabiha strike aircraft. An impressive vessel, the Sultanate values supremacy of the skies that the Suleiman class brings. While her twin hulls make her slower to turn than other vessels of her size, her ability as the flagship in a carrier assault group shows the huge advances the Ottomans are making thanks to heavy investment by the Sublime Porte. This box contains: 1x Suleiman Fleet Carrier 3x Cruiser (can be built as either a Iskandar, Izmir, Pasha or Sadrazam Class ship. Both cruisers can also be combined to build a Hurrem Grand Cruiser or a Mehmed Grand Monitor) 6x Temir Frigate 3x Cruiser (can be built as either a Constantinople, Mihrimah, Konya, Aydin or Morea Class ship) 6x Ferik escort skiff 3x SRS Tokens Alliance Frontline Squadrons The Chevalier cruisers and Charlemagne heavy cruisers are the mainstay of Alliance cruisers and are able to launch screens of torpedoes in a wide range of fire arcs, as well as lay down heat lances or rocket batteries, when necessary. Loire light cruisers are at the forefront of Alliance Battlefleets and as such often the first to engage with the enemy. They provide screening and reconnaissance for the rest of the battlefleet and any commodore worth his salt will know how to make best use of any Loire’s under their command. This box contains: 2x Cruiser (can be built as either a Loire, Picardy, Chevalier or Charlemagne class ship) 4x Ecuyere Frigate Wild West Exodus Sometimes you have to take the law into your own mechanical hand, and for the Earps the law is a family affair… Vengeance of the Earps Posse Those who think that Martha Earp has a softer nature than her brothers are sorely mistaken. After an illness in her childhood cost her an arm, she gained an unshakable resolve and vowed that she would survive anything life could throw at her, proving that fact to anyone who challenged it. Martha is joined by her brother, Warren Earp, a man who is not just the most ornery of his clan, but one of the most bad-tempered lawmen riding across the west. Fighting in the Ore War, something inside Warren snapped and no amount of cosseting could fix it. Now he rides with his sister, too angry to settle anywhere, keeping the peace by any means necessary. As a Justice of the Peace, the venerable patriarch of the family, Nicholas Earp was given a UR-24 automata to help with his duties. On his passing in 1863, the machine was damaged and fell into disuse. As the various siblings drifted away from the family home to fight in the Ore War, the automata was repurposed to help around the place. The UR-24 was especially useful to Martha, who had yet to fully embrace the mechanical prosthesis her father had acquired for her. This box contains: 1x Martha Earp mounted on Iron Horse 1x Warren Earp mounted on Iron Horse 1x James Earp mounted on Iron Horse Warcradle Scenics It’s not just miniatures this month; there’s also an exciting new Terrain Set and individual Long Hall available from the village of Estun that is perfect for games such as Age of Sigmar, Frostgrave and Call To Arms. Estun Village Set The Blacksmith of the Estun is one of the most revered men in the village. He may not be a warrior, though he could certainly hold his own in a fight. Instead, he is held in such high regard for without him the whole village would fall into disrepair. Everything from nails to horseshoes to swords makes its way out of that glowing forge. Even when all is quiet in Estun, the Tavern still has sounds of revelry. Mead, ale and wine from faraway lands are consumed by the hogshead. Life is hard in the mountains and everyone needs a place to ease the aching bones. Skalds know that they can pass through and get fed and watered for the price of a story. Can a village without a tavern truly be called a village at all? This set contains: 1x Estun Blacksmith 1x Estun Church 1x Estun Market Stalls 1x Estun Saw Mill 1x Estun Dwelling 1x Estun Watch Tower 1x Estun Tavern Estun Village - Long Hall The Long Hall is the most defensible building in the village. It has held against orcs, wolves, raiders and more eldritch enemies. It even survived a small fire after Belas the Bold tried throwing flaming axes in the hall during one particularly raucous festival. The Lord hands out justice here and all the village’s celebrations as well as funerals, which are all held within its stout walls. The commoners of Estun know this place as their refuge in dangerous times; the warriors know this as the place they will die to protect. This set contains: 1x Estun Long Hall There’s a lot to look forward to this month for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. What are you looking forward to the most? Make sure you don’t miss out when these go live for pre-order on the 25th of June 2022 from your FLGS or Wayland Games Online.

  14. May releases are now available to pre-order! Check out the Warcradle Studios Blog for more information.
  15. Raise the anchors and ready your horses as May is full of exciting new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus, and Warcradle Scenics. Following the Sultanate's introduction to Dystopian Wars last month it feels like something is missing, but what could it be? That's right, the Latin Alliance. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the French take to the seas in the name of the Alliance. The Sultanate, hearing of this return, deploy reinforcements of their own to prepare for what is to come. The skies over Wild West Exodus are filled with the distinct clang of metallic wings piercing through the air as the Enlightened’s vulture-like invention, the Apex Hellion swoop down on their unwitting victims. Red Oak continues to expand this month as the Red Oak Town Set 2 features more of your favourite scenery and terrain re-releases, now in beautiful colour, in a great value set. Make sure not to miss when these exciting new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics go live on the 29th of April 2022. Due to be released at the end of May 2022. Dystopian Wars The French begin to lower the hull of the Oriflamme into the water as they get ready to kickstart their navy with the Oriflamme Battlefleet Set. In aid of the Anatolia, the Sultanate strengthen their hold on the waters with the Sultanate Frontline Squadrons. Oriflamme Battlefleet Set Driven forward by the memories of past glory the Latin Alliance launch their first ships in the form of the French Oriflamme Battlefleet Set. At the heart of the Alliance battleline can be found the Oriflamme Battleship. Thoroughly modernised from the hulls of ageing Prince de Joinville class Battleships, the Oriflamme are the pride of the Republique. As much a work of art as a Battleship, even enemy crews can’t help but be impressed by the lines and craftsmanship of an Oriflamme cutting through the waves. This box contains: 1x Oriflamme Battleship 2x Cruiser (can be built as either a Loire, Picardy, Chevalier or Charlemagne Class ship) 4x Ecuyere Frigate Sultanate Frontline Squadrons The Sultanate cannot rest on their laurels this month and must make sure to keep up their presence with the introduction of the Sultanate Frontline Squadrons. This box contains: 2x Cruiser (can be built as either a Iskandar, Izmir, Pasha or Sadrazam Class ship. Both cruisers can also be combined to build a Hurrem Grand Cruiser or a Mehmed Grand Monitor) 4x Temir Frigate Wild West Exodus Keep your eyes to the skies this month as the Enlightened are busy tinkering to create even more Apex Hellions. Apex Hellions Previously seen in the Murder of Hellion Posse Set, the Apex Hellions are available to pre-order as their own separate set. The Apex Hellions are a refinement of Caym’s designs for winged constructs, often used as lieutenants, or more accurately pack leaders, for his forces. Apex Hellions fly in on great mechanical wings tearing apart their targets without remorse or any emotion apart from hate amplified by whatever processes Caym uses to control these soaring terrors. They are the first to engage the enemy, urged on by a monstrous will that only seeks to tear and rend. While they lack the ability to employ ranged weapons, their Hellion Evicerators are more than enough to tangle up an opponent before ripping them apart in a hideous display of slaughter. Science untempered by ethics is a horrifying thing. This box contains: 2x Apex Hellions Warcradle Scenics Expand your Red Oak town with even more detailed terrain for your tabletop to host shootouts and gunfights with the Red Oak Town Set 2. Red Oak Town Set 2 This set contains: 1x Residence 1x Distillery 1x Town House 1x Gallows and Clock Tower 1x Post Office 1x Cartwright 1x Bank 1x Watchtower As you can see May is full of exciting releases for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics.

  17. This April there is a lot to look forward to from Warcradle Studios, with exciting new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. April ushers in the introduction of a new faction to the sea as the Sultanate makes a valiant entrance to Dystopian Wars with the Anatolia Battlefleet Set. Waves begin to crash over the decks of a mobile stronghold as the Murmansk resurfaces for the Commonwealth and the Union call in more supporting vessels with the Union Support Squadrons. The wild side of Wild West Exodus gets that little bit wilder as the Ceruleans are back with a separate box of Cerulean Infiltrators for the Watchers. The town of Retribution returns to your tabletop with the Retribution Town range, now available as individual terrain kits. With so much to come for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics, make sure you don’t miss out when they are available to pre-order from the 25th of March 2022. Due to be released at the end of April 2022. Dystopian Wars The Sultanate joins the fray as the Anatolia Battlefleet Set is ready to set sail with their enriched knowledge unlocked by the New Learning. Almost as large as the Ice Maiden itself, the gigantic Murmansk Mobile Stronghold breaks the surface of the water and emerges in all its glory to repair any Commonwealth vessels. With these two huge releases the Union are forced to deploy additional reinforcements in the form of the Union Support Squadrons. Anatolia Battlefleet Set Once assumed to be at the brink of collapse due to their idleness, the Sultanate can no longer ignore the pressures of foreign enemies and has launched their first fleet to the seas of Dystopian Wars with the Anatolia Battlefleet Set. This box contains: 1x Anatolia Battleship 2x Cruiser (can be built as either a Iskandar, Izmir, Pasha or Sadrazam Class ship. Both cruisers can also be combined to build a Hurrem Grand Cruiser or a Mehmed Grand Monitor) 4x Temir Frigate Murmansk Battlefleet Set Rising from the depths, what at first looks like a small blot in the ocean becomes larger and larger until the massive Murmansk Mobile Stronghold breaks through the surface of the water. With a monumental crash of water the Murmansk is ready to aid any Commonwealth vessel. Part firebase and part repair yard, a Murmansk allows the Commonwealth to expand its theatres of operation around the globe. Utilising integrated void engine technology acquired by Helsinki Markov, the Murmansk can appear unexpectedly, rising from beneath the waves in a matter of minutes. The engineering teams aboard a Murmansk are so well drilled that they can even make emergency repairs during an engagement. Often an opponent of the Commonwealth thought a key target was critically damaged only for the brave teams aboard a nearby Murmansk to keep it in fighting condition. This box contains: 1x Mobile Stronghold (Can be built as either a Murmansk, Tobolsk, or Anastasia Class Ship) 4x Frontline Cruiser (can be built as either a Kutsov, Oleg, Sineus or Norilsk Class Ship) 2x Support Cruiser (can be built as either a Khatanga, Morozko or Pravda Class ship) 2x Stoletov Ekranoplan 8x Rurik Class Frigate 4x SRS Token Union Support Squadrons Following the soon-to-be released Enterprise Battlefleet Set, the Union are looking to strengthen their forces with the deployment of Support Squadrons. Packed with Cruisers and Automata this set adds a punch to any Union fleet. The Union fleet has seen a number of technological improvements since the defection of Nikolai Tesla from the Imperium, and a significant overall increase since the end of the Ore War. Support Cruisers and Automata have all been upgraded by the creative team in the Pipeworks. This box contains: 2x Union Support Cruisers (can be built as either a Discovery, Roanoke, California, Montgomery or Washington Class ship) 4x RC-52 Patriot Automata 2x SRS Tokens Wild West Exodus The pre-orders this month are out of this world as the Ceruleans return to Wild West Exodus. Eager to blend in and observe, these Cerulean Infiltrators are ready to aid any Watcher posse you may possess. Cerulean Infiltrators Hidden deep within society, the Cerulean Infiltrators have long lived amongst us and are now available outside of the Cerulean Clade Posse box. Full of undercover extraterrestrials, bring these masters of mimicking to your Watchers force. The Vreib possessed a naturally evolved chameleonic ability that helped them avoid or manipulate the many predators of their home world. When it was time for the species to join the Watchers Hegemony, this talent was seen as uniquely valuable. The Watchers spend centuries observing, trying to understand the sentient species of the galaxy. Being able to infiltrate such societies and live among them, even to think like them, was now possible thanks to the genetic talents of the Vreib. This box contains: 5x Cerulean Infiltrators Warcradle Scenics Now available for the first time in individual terrain kits, the bustling town of Retribution returns to your tabletop as the scene of epic gunfights and deadly shootouts. Retribution Town Range As the dust settles and the blood dries up in the scorching heat, the town of Retribution surely will not remain silent for very long. Following the conflict between Gustave Eiffel and Nikolai Tesla in Showdown at Retribution, the town of Retribution is now available as separate terrain kits to further customise the settings of your favourite wargames. There’s a lot to love this month with so much coming for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. Make sure to pre-order yours on the 25th March 2022 from your FLGS or Wayland Games online. Want to keep up to date with all the latest news and releases?

  18. March looks to be an exciting month for fans of Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics with pre-orders aplenty! The seas aren't calm for very long as the Enterprise Battlefleet Set is deployed by The Union, making quite the splash. A rising force in the Dystopian Age, the Japanese continue to grow their navy with more reinforcements in the form of Frontline Squadrons. The Enlightened’s nefarious experiments culminate in the creation of a deadly invention this month, as the Sickle Gyro Cav is added to their arsenal in Wild West Exodus. The town of Red Oak springs to life as its Saloon and Cathouse doors swing open once more, allowing players to bring the town to their tabletop in one great value set. Make sure not to miss out on all of these exciting March releases, available to pre-order from the 25th February 2022. Due to be released at the end of March 2022. Dystopian Wars The Union launch the largest vessel in their naval register this month with the release of the Enterprise Battlefleet Set, cementing them as a power that is not to be taken lightly. Not only that, following the release of the Kongo Battlefleet Set, the Japanese continue to expand their influence with the deployment of the Japanese Frontline Squadrons. Enterprise Battlefleet Set The Union's hard work has paid off as the Enterprise is ready to set sail for Dystopian Wars in the new Enterprise Battlefleet Set. As the Union pushed out into the Pacific and Atlantic, it required significant air power to support fleet operations. The Enterprise class is a formidable warship and the largest vessel in the Union naval register. Once dubbed the Great Experiment, the success of these vessels is beyond doubt. Powered by three massive Paddlewheels, this mighty vessel retains some of the manoeuvrability of the smaller Union ships while still being able to keep the ship moving at an impressive speed for its size. The recent addition of launch cables allow for more rapid deployment of Corsairs, of which it carries ten squadrons. The Enterprise class Heavy Carriers also serve as mobile headquarters for Admirals and other high ranking military and civil individuals of note when the fleet operates far from home waters. Alongside the frontline ships of the Union Navy, the Enterprise is rarely seen without a small flotilla of support vessels. These ships are also able to provide field repairs to the RC-52 Patriot Automata. These towering simulacra are designed by the brilliant theoretical engineers at The Pipeworks, and are the largest automata in the Union’s military. Just like smaller automata, over time their adaptive computations develop quirks that give veteran Automata distinctive personalities. Contents: 1x Enterprise Heavy Carrier 3x Yorktown Class Cruisers. Each Cruiser can alternatively be built as either Intrepid, Lexington or Reliant Class. 6x Farragut Class Frigates 3x Akron Observation Rotor 3x Discovery Class Cruisers. Each Cruiser can alternatively be built as either Roanoke, California, Montgomery or Washington Class. 6x RC-52 Patriot Automata 3x SRS Token Japanese Frontline Squadrons The Japanese face their competition head on as the Japanese Frontline Squadrons sail into action to escort the previously released Kongo Heavy Battleship. The supporting cruisers that are assigned to Battlefleets through the forces of the Empire vary great. From the imposing Hokkaido Heavy Cruiser down to the nimble Kanagawa Monitor there is a cruiser variant for every mission. Japanese Cruiser groups are typically accompanied by Chita Submersible Automata. These engineering wonders are the equal to the mechanical creations of the Covenant of the Enlightened and are used to protect the fleet from threats beneath the waves as well as assisting in assaults.ce aircraft that act as spotters and limited aerial defence. When needs must they can also perform bombing runs on enemy shipping but usually only when supported by other aerial units. The Japanese favour Kyoto frigates when running their patrols between the far-flung islands of their homeland. The vessels are ideally suited for this task and for new sailors a year on a Kyoto is their first experience of the proud naval traditions of the Blazing Sun. Contents: 2x Osaka Cruisers. Each Cruiser can alternatively be built as either Kanagawa, Hokkaido, Okinawa, Miyagi, Yamaguchi, Ishikawa or Honshu Cruiser 4x Kyoto Frigates 4x Chita Automata Wild West Exodus Not content with creating just the Mono and Strider-Cav, the Enlightened have much more to show for Wild West Exodus as their Cavs become airborne! Introducing the Sickle Gyro Cav. Sickle Gyro Cav The pursuit of science is a never-ending endeavour and the Covenant of the Enlightened will stop at nothing when developing their augmented army. It is from this pursuit the Sickle Gyro Cav is born. The line between madness and genius is a fine one. Often an invention, thought outlandish and unusable, has subsequently become almost commonplace. There are always those looking to push boundaries further and be noticed in such a world where remarkable contraptions such as the Strider-Cav walk the earth. In the case of the Prussian scientist Ludwig Berblinger, it was the notion of ‘walking the earth’ that he sought to challenge. Contents: 1x Sickle Gyro Cav Warcradle Scenics The town of Red Oak is open to all those seeking refuge and entertainment with the money to pay for it. Bring Red Oak to your tabletop with the Red Oak Town Set 1, which offers multiple of the original Red Oak terrain kits now available in colour, and in one great value set. Red Oak Town Set 1 The town of Red Oak has seen more than its fair share of shootouts and gunfights. Its location in the Arizona territory seems to be within the reach of many of the varied groups who hope to gain some sway over the people of the West. Various Outlaw gangs end up in town wanting to trade or spend their ill-gotten gains on whatever entertainment their minds can think up. The Cathouse and Saloon are usually the first place Outlaws (or anyone new in town for that matter) head to. Wyatt Earp passes through, sometimes dropping off his latest quarry in the Jail until they can be properly tried. Contents: 1x Crematorium 1x Cat House 1x Saloon 1x Bridge 1x Jail 1x Scatter 1x Metalsmith 1x Prospector's Shack And there you have it, the exciting new March releases coming to Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. Not long left to wait now, pre-order yours on the 25th February 2022 from your FLGS or Wayland Games Online.

  19. February is upon us, and with it there are a whole host of exciting new releases for Dystopian Wars and Wild West Exodus that you will not want to miss. Not to be outdone by the Japanese’s introduction to Dystopian Wars, The Imperium valiantly return to the seas of the Dystopian Age with two new Battlefleet Sets! To combat this rise in power, The Crown are deploying more reinforcements with their Support Squadron. Augmentation aplenty for Wild West Exodus as Gustave Eiffel continues to expand his Enlightened force further with even more Mono-Cavs and Strider-Cavs, which will be available to purchase separately from the Showdown at Retribution Two-Player Starter Set. Don’t miss out on all of these exciting new releases that are available to pre-order from January 28th 2022. Due to be released at the end of February 2022. Dystopian Wars The Imperium are upping the ante this month, attempting to rule the seas with an ironfist using the Hochmeister Battlefleet Set and the Konig Battlefleet Set. Not to be beaten, The Crown deploy their own British Crown Support Squadron to strengthen their fleet. With the amount of power being introduced to Dystopian Wars, this month looks to be a very exciting one. Hochmeister Battlefleet Set Something massive stirs beneath the seas of Dystopian Wars for The Imperium. As it marches ever closer, the Hochmeister Battlefleet Set is ready to strike. The Hochmeister is a mechanical marvel crewed by Teutonic Knight-Luminaries. These Vitruvian colossi stride the seabed waiting for the perfect time to strike, launching upwards on powerful hydro jets. The Hochmeister erupts from the sea, water cascading off its hull as its huge Zweihänder sword cleaves through enemy vessels in an awesome display of Imperial might. As with all machines of war in The Imperium arsenal, their Colossi can be refitted to suit a different purpose. The Metzger Vitruvian Colossus exchanges the sword and shoulder mounted turrets for more devastating weaponry such as the Uber Flak Vierling and the Claw Arc Projector. Both of these come directly from the vaults of the Teutonic Knight-Luminaries and are therefore rarely seen. When one of these Colossi appears in the midst of combat a cheer will erupt from the crews aboard the nearby Imperium ships as they are seen as an omen of victory, usually for good reason. Contents: 3x Hochmeister Vitruvian Colossi. Each Colossus can alternatively be built as a Metzger Vitruvian Colossus Konig Battlefleet Set Not content with just one release this month, The Imperium launch a second assault with the Konig Battlefleet Set. The Teutonic Knight-Luminaries developed an advanced generator ship utilising much of the Elector class design. Featuring the latest in metallurgical and technological advancements, the Konig class is used to lead Teutonic battlefleets in operations around the globe. By decree of the Kaiser, these vessels are accountable only to the Grandmaster herself. Not only does this vessel boast an impressive array of generators it is also equipped with a devastating range of weaponry including a fore-mounted Sturmbringer. This combination makes the Konig a very valuable asset to any Imperium battlefleet. Like all capital ships the Konig is always supported by a combination of frontline, support and other smaller vessels. Contents: 1x Konig Class Battleship 1x Ferdinand Class Cruiser 1x Augustus Class Cruiser. The Augustus can alternatively be built as a Schaumburg Class 2x Arminius Class Frigates 2x Sigimer Class Destroyers. Each Destroyer can alternatively be built as Toten Class 1x Blitzen Bomber special SRS Token 1x Imperium SRS token British Crown Support Squadron Following the release of the Victory Battlefleet Set, The Crown have more in store with the British Crown Support Squadron, which aims to assist any Crown fleet with further reinforcements. While the Frontline Squadrons of the Crown Royal Navy are used to going toe-to-toe with enemy fleets, the Support Squadrons serve a range of unique roles to aid and assist the fleet as a whole to complete their missions. Contents: 2 x Agincourt Cruisers. Each Cruiser can alternatively be built as either Athelstan or Hotspur Class 4 x Excalibur Heavy Destroyers 2 x Morgana Submarines 2 x SRS Tokens Wild West Exodus The wheels begin to whir and the pneumatic legs stride forward with the release of the Mono-Cavs / Strider-Cavs, a set featuring options to build both the Mono and Strider-Cavs seen in the Showdown at Retribution Two-Player Starter Set. Mono-Cav and Strider-Cav Augmentation to overcome injury or disability was the goal of the Covenant of the Enlightened when they first began to experiment with grafting mechanisms to flesh. The power source known as RJ-1027 enabled the Covenant to take this intention to an extreme with more audacious and extensive modifications being possible. Some constructs had their legs and lower torsos replaced with motorised mono-wheels, commonly called Seekers, or with multiple articulated steel limbs, who became known as Widowers. If a construct could control a simple motorised mono-wheel, then why not integrate one into an RJ powered, gyro-stabilized weapons platform? The Mono-Cav was born. Utilising the same methodology is the Strider-Cav, a natural advancement of the Widower construct. Four pneumatic legs power it forward, resembling a sinister steel spider.

  20. The waters of the Dystopian Age are coming alive once more with the upcoming release of a battlefleet set from an exciting new nation to Dystopian Wars, the Japanese! The Kongo Battlefleet Set will launch this January. Nikolai Tesla has been hard at work and January sees his hard work pay off with the release of the UR-31E Teslabots, your first chance to acquire these heavily-armed automata for Wild West Exodus outside of the Showdown at Retribution Two Player Starter Set. Last up is the Augusta range from Warcradle Scenics, which sees the Augusta Industrial Set, released in August 2021 now in individual terrain sets, allowing you to add even more to your wargames set in the grim setting of Augusta. Make sure you don’t miss out on all these exciting new releases available to pre-order from December 31st 2021. Due to be released at the end of January 2022. Dystopian Wars This month introduces a brand new nation to Dystopian Wars with the release of the Kongo Battlefleet Set. The Empire will be sure to take advantage of these new Japanese ships that pack a significant punch. Kongo Battlefleet Set The Japanese enter the fray for the first time and are ready to fight for The Empire with the upcoming release of the Kongo Battlefleet Set. Of all the Battleships upon the seas in the last 50 years the Britannia Class of the Crown has been considered the heaviest. That is until the Empire launched the Kongo Class Heavy Battleship. One of the deadliest warships to ply the seas of the Dystopian Age, the Kongo is crewed by some of the finest sailors in all of Japan. The design of this behemoth was always aimed at making it as armoured as possible while still retaining speed and manoeuvrability as much as the best Japanese naval engineers could manage. Wild West Exodus Can you hear that? The mechanical marching of the UR-31E Teslabots is almost deafening as Nikolai Tesla’s inventions come to life once more for Wild West Exodus. UR-31E Teslabots Nikolai Tesla is not a man to stand still. He is forever moving forward, tinkering with his designs and dreaming up new and ever more challenging projects. The UR-31 E is one such progression from the UR-31 Automata, a design that became ubiquitous to replace lost manpower after the Ore War. These so-called ‘Teslabots’ are hard wired with either ranged offensive instructions or more defensive, close order ones depending on their equipment loadout. Warcradle Scenics As night envelopes the industrial district of Augusta, the ne'er do wells come out in full force. Back from Warcradle Scenics is the Augusta Industrial range of terrain sets, now available to purchase individually. Bring the town of Augusta to life in Wild West Exodus, Warhammer 40k, Infinity, and more! Augusta Industrial Range On the edge of town sits the industrial district of Augusta. This collection of small factories, warehouses, and depots are busy by day and all but abandoned by night. When the sun goes down the dark alleyways and abandoned lots are rife with illicit activity, squatters, and criminal elements. But it doesn’t end there, things move in the shadows, shapes flow just out of the corner of your eye and if you stand very still you can hear a slow rhythmic thrumming of a vast machine beneath your feet. So this month is packed full of exciting upcoming releases with a new nation for Dystopian Wars, a set of standalone UR-31E Teslabots as seen in Showdown at Retribution for Wild West Exodus, and a range of industrial scenics from Warcradle Scenics. Make sure you don’t miss out when they go on pre-order December 31st 2021 from your FLGS or Wayland Games online. As always, be sure to keep up to date with Warcradle Studios’ socials, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for new releases and more. View the full article
  21. Here on the Warcradle Studios Blog we are continuing to showcase Showdown at Retribution with another Step-by-Step. Following on from the previous Step-by-Step on Tesla’s Head, Daz has continued to work on his Nikolai Tesla from the new Wild West Exodus Two Player Starter Set. This time, it's the turn of Tesla’s torso. Have you picked yourself up a copy of Showdown at Retribution and want a little inspiration on how to paint your leader of the Union? Well, follow along with Daz and your Tesla’s armour will look just as striking! Step 1: To start with, I applied a 50/50 mix of Umbral Umber/Heartfire as a base coat for the areas that will be gold. I made sure to leave a thin black line between the segments and the blue armour to aid with clarity and contrast later. Step 2: Then, after adding 25% more Heartfire to the Step 1 mix, I sketched the first highlight in with the light source slightly off centre to add a little more interest. Step 3: I then added a further 25% more Heartfire to the mix and refined the highlight areas. Step 4: The next highlight was just pure Heartfire which I applied inside the areas I’d previously highlighted in the past steps. Step 5: Next, I sketched in some rough light points with Cygnus Yellow. Step 6: I highlighted the light points with an equal parts mix of Cygnus Yellow, Menoth White Highlight and Vallejo Fluro Yellow for some added punch. Step 7: The final highlight was a Menoth White Highlight that I applied to the edges of the gold and the light points. If you want you can also add chips and extra light points to the armour at this stage. Stage 8: Finally, all the edges and light points are tidied and then edged with Menoth White Highlight to clean them up. Job done! Here we have the finished result, a fully painted Nikolai Tesla by Daz. View fullsize View fullsize How do you think Daz’s Nikolai Tesla is coming on? Make sure to check out the first Step-by-Step on Tesla’s head and keep an eye on the Warcradle Studios Blog for more. Have you picked up a copy of Showdown at Retribution yet? You can pick up a copy from your FLGS or Wayland Games online. Make sure to share your progress on your Showdown at Retribution miniatures with us over in the official community channel for Wild West Exodus, The Dark Council. View the full article
  22. November is a big month here at Warcradle Studios, exciting new pre-orders are coming your way for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. Dystopian Wars players have a lot to look forward to with the release of the Victory Battlefleet Set and the Tianlong Battlefleet Set. The Enlightened are also getting reinforcements with the Enlightened Support Squadron. Following on from the release of the new two player starter set; Showdown at Retribution, the Wild West Iron Horses will be available to pre-order as their own separate box and can be built for five different factions. Not only that, you will now be able to purchase the 3rd Edition Rules & Gubbins Set. Last but by no means least is the Promethean Complex from Warcradle Scenics. Built upon existing mineworks, this terrain perfectly captures the secretive and dangerous experiments the Covenant of the Enlightened perform in the pursuit of progress. With so much to look forward to, make sure you pre-order from October 29th 2021. Dystopian Wars This month there are three exciting new releases for Dystopian Wars. The Crown and The Empire have two new forces incoming, the Victory Battlefleet Set and the Tianlong Battlefleet Set, as well as the Enlightened Support Squadrons. Victory Battlefleet Set Following the release of the Britannia Battlefleet Set in late August of this year, The Crown has launched back into action with the brand new Victory Battlefleet Set. For the last three decades, the Victory class Heavy Carriers have been a dominating force around the globe. They demonstrate the huge significance that naval strength plays in all Crown military campaigns. As an island nation, the British consider the seas and oceans of the world as essential to hold their Dominions together. The Victory and her aircraft ensure that remains so. With an internal hanger that is rivalled only by the experimental Ice Maiden of the Imperium, A Victory can launch dozens of Defiant fighters into the skies to defend the fleet from incoming bombers or to hammer the decks of her enemies with their rapid firing Vickers Automatic Guns. Tianlong Battlefleet Set The newest addition to The Empire is the Tianlong Battlefleet Set. If you’re looking to start an Empire force, or add to one, then this set is a battlefleet to be excited for! The Tianlong Draconic Colossus uses a combination of rotor engines and repulsion fields to remain aloft. Originally created to patrol the airspace near the Zhanmadao Sky Fortresses and Ziwei Sky Bastions, the Tianlong swoop down, their skilled crews getting the most out of these marvels of Engineering. The Tianlong can be outfitted with different weapons located in the mouth and tail. The choice of the Heavy Huoqiang or the Heat Lancette is a difficult one for most Captains to make. The Heavy gun battery can also be removed in favour of additional crew space to house a squadron of Bushi Ryu. These highly trained Samurai use rocket propelled armour to descend to assault enemy vessels in hand to hand combat. There are occasions when squadrons of Tianlong are sent on strike missions, if so they are often supported on the sea by Gong destroyers. These fast, but well armed vessels are ideal for long range, fast attacks, complimenting the Draconic Colossi well. Enlightened Support Squadron Calling all reinforcements! The Enlightened are getting their own Support Squadron, featuring the support ships seen in the Hypatia Battlefleet Set and Hunt for the Prometheus Two Player Starter Set. The support ships that escort the Flagship vessels of the Enlightened Fleets fill some very specialist roles. The Plinius Support Carrier carries dozens of Scythe Drones and can launch them from hydraulic ramps. This allows the Plinius to partially submerge when the ramps are closed making it very difficult to see and target. Built around the same hull as the Plinius are a number of other Cruisers. The Quintilian bombardment cruiser mounts heavy rockets that it can launch at distant targets before returning below the waves. While these Cruisers are able to lurk just below the surface the Diogenese and Praxilla Class Submarines are able to operate at significant depths. These large Automata operate under a number of pre-programmed subroutines and are effective at hunting down and destroying enemy vessels. Wild West Exodus This November, Wild West Exodus also has two new releases; the 3rd Edition Rules and Gubbins Set as well as the Iron Horse. Third Edition Rules and Gubbins Set Wild West Exodus has just entered its 3rd Edition, and you can bring your games up to speed with the 3rd Edition Rules and Gubbins Set this November. With everything needed to play, this set includes the 3rd Edition rulebook, Action and Adventure Card Deck, Dice and much more. Wild West Exodus is a dynamic, fast-paced tabletop miniatures game pitting a cast of heroic characters against each other in a brutal world - very much a twisted reflection of our own. In the twilight years of the Nineteenth Century, mankind is perched upon a new age of discovery and enlightenment. The Wild West Exodus Rules & Gubbins Set contains all the tools you need to play. Just grab this box and your favourite Posse (or two) and you are ready to start clashing against your opponents in the West. Wild West Iron Horses Seen in the recent new two player starter set; Showdown at Retribution, the Wild West Iron Horses will be available to pre-order in it’s own boxed set. With two build options and five faction riders available, this will be a great addition to most forces. Since Armstrong Custer’s famous charge leading the Michigan Wolverine’s at Gettysburg, the Iron Horse has become a ubiquitous machine across the frontier. Their combination of speed, firepower and durability led to a massive Union contract with the Covenant of the Enlightened during the Ore War, replacing flesh and blood horses in all cavalry regiments. Now more than a decade later, Iron Horses have become easy to obtain, with Union surplus and frontline shipments making their way onto the black market in vast numbers and the machinery itself proving to be simple to maintain with spare-parts in abundance. While older marks and models of Iron Horse prove to be a little on the temperamental side, the Iron Horse’s popularity and variety of designs can be found in use across the Union and beyond. Uniquely found in the Union arsenal, the Iron Eagle is seen by many as the pinnacle of technological evolution for the Iron Horse.More than the replacement of the RJ engine with a voltaic power plant, the Iron Eagle boasts additional armor and electro-weaponry. As the ultimate statement that the Iron Eagle represented the future of Union military prowess, Nikolai Tesla incorporated specially programmed UR-31E Automata to pilot these new machines, giving them a resilience unmatched in the field by other cavalry. Warcradle Scenics Lastly we have, from Warcradle Scenics, the Promethean Complex Set. This terrain-based set presents a secret scientific setting to the tabletop, compatible with Wild West Exodus, Warhammer 40K, Infinity and more. The Peers of the Covenant of the Enlightened often perform elaborate and sometimes dangerous experiments using the most powerful technologies known to humanity. In order to ensure that they have all the assets required for such work they typically create labyrinthine and eccentric laboratories for themselves. It is not without some irony that these sprawling structures have been collectively named Promethean Complexes. More often than not, in order to contain explosions and noise as well as retaining complete anonymity and secrecy, they build on existing mineworks or new excavations to be contained largely underground, with esoteric and blunt looking iron and steel structures jutting out across the surface forming into a small estate or settlement.

  23. Daz has been hard at work painting so you know what that means, it’s Step-by-Step time again! As you may have recently seen, Warcradle Studios has released a Wild West Exodus two player starter set; Showdown at Retribution. Including two forces of detailed Warcradle miniatures from either the Enlightened or the Union, today we are focusing on the UR-31E Teslabot. Make sure to follow the steps below to achieve a finished piece of UR-31E Teslabot armour, or to help inspire your Wild West Exodus painting journey. Step 1: I start by giving the model a base coat of dark blue (P3 Exile Blue), you can use an airbrush to help speed up this process or use a heavy wetting brush if you’d prefer. Step 2: I created the first highlight by mixing a 50/50 ratio of blue (P3 Cygnar Base Blue) with our previous mix of dark blue (P3 Exile Blue). When applying I made sure to aim for the edges and flat panels. Step 3: To create the second highlight I added a 25/75 ratio of turquoise (P3 Arcane Blue) to the previous mix. I once again highlighted the edges and panels, this time leaving a little of the previous layer showing. I blended these areas roughly as I went, using a combination of feathering and stippling. At this point, I also outlined the points where different panels meet to further reinforce contrast. Step 4: For a further layer of highlighting, I added 25/75 blue white (P3 Frostbite) to the previous mix and repeated the process, again leaving a little of the previous layer showing just like before. Step 5: I applied the final highlight with a watered down layer (50/50) of P3 Frostbite concentrating on the uppermost edges and corners. And… we can call this as good as done! Read on for final touches. Step 6: I added some quick chips and dings with watered down black (P3 Thamar Black), all the best armour has at least some wear! Step 7: I made sure to give all corners, high edges and the undersides of the chips a thin highlight of P3 Frostbite. Step 8: Next, I applied a dark shade of red (P3 Sanguine Base) to the deepest recesses to suggest wear and to add interest. Step 9: Finally, I gave all areas of the miniature a very thin glaze of 10/90 Cygnar Base Blue to tie everything together. And we’re done! Excited to get your hands on your own UR-31E Teslabots?

Showdown at Retribution, the two-player starter set for Wild West Exodus includes both the Union and Enlightened forces inside - this will be a great starting point for any new players or a boxed set for collectors to acquire.

Showdown at Retribution The Showdown at Retribution Two Player Starter Set serves not only as a great way for new players to start playing Wild West Exodus, but also as an appealing addition to any player's existing collection. The frontier of the Union of Federated States is a wild and often lawless place. Ideal for outlaws, renegades and zealots to prey on the locals. Now a force led by the morally bankrupt Enlightened scientist Gustave Eiffel has arrived in the town of Retribution. Enlightened Gustave Eiffel View fullsize Smash and Grab View fullsize Emily Nouguir View fullsize The mayor sends out a call for aid and is overjoyed to find that the hero of the Union, Nikolai Tesla is in the area.

With October's releases you can create and fight within your very own town of Retribution on the tabletop. Most frontier towns in the midwest are sparsely populated, largely lawless, dangerous places to live in or to visit. Retribution, however, is a different story. With the 7th Cavalry and 222nd Infantry Union regiments now based out Camp Soule a few miles to the west, the town has been transformed into an oasis of entertainment and civility in a desert of threats, violence and death.
