  1. For centuries the Order of the Allshard has waged their Crusade against the Hex at the fringes of human civilisation. Only in recent years has the Order’s technology and influence grown to the point that they can now look to root out the Hex’s malign influence in Great Powers of the Dystopian Age. When creating the background to a game, we get snapshots of a culture as required through the miniatures and rules. The Dystopian Age is a more complex proposition in this regard as it requires a narrative to act as the setting for multiple games. Let’s look at the Order of the Allshard as one such narrative link. A primary faction for Wild West Exodus the secretive nature of the Order (as they are more commonly known) means that their presence beyond the Badlands of the Union is rare to say the least. More on that a little later though! In Wild West Exodus, we have established a range of miniatures to support those parts of the Order that might be encountered on the Frontier. The Order are seen to be stepping up their offensive against those who would stand in the way of their sacred Crusade. Part of the difficulty that the Order have faced is that agents of the Hex can be found throughout the social and military structures of the Union and have been able to travel the country with impunity. Now those same self-serving agents of chaos find themselves hunted by an implacable and resolute force. Recruiting predominantly from the indigenous tribes, the Spica Iapetus are the ultimate trackers and hunters of the tainted. Iron resolve matched with the weapons and wargear entrusted to them by the Allshard, Sicran Dylan Callus leads his hunters to use every tool at their disposal. In addition to hunting those touched by the Hex, the Iapetus are entrusted with the handling and training of the various animals that aid them in their Crusade. The Dhyre Lurchers and Helio Raptors are two such species, specially bred and conditioned over the centuries to be able to track and attack those marked by the taint of the Hex. Though their true mission is obfuscated beneath layers of doctrine and parables, the Order has remained a fringe religion in the wider world. Only in the Ottoman Sultanate have the Order found a strong foothold outside of their Bastion in North America. This was made possible in 1867 when the Order, monitoring Greek separatists with links to the Hex, witnessed an attack by the separatists on the city of Edirne. While conducting observations, Sircan Callus was in a position to save the life of an imperilled young man. In this apparently selfless act, Callus won the gratitude of the young man’s father, a senior member of the Sublime Porte of the Sultanate. Soon after this Callus was summoned to Istanbul to meet with the Sultan himself, and it is thanks to Callus’ persuasive words and sharp wit that the Order now enjoys an unprecedented level of access and open influence in the Sultanate. The Order of the Allshard are one of the recognised religions in the Sultanate and have influenced both within the Sublime Porte and in the Sultan’s court itself. The Sultan enjoys the protection of a pair of Cor Caroli as ever vigilant bodyguard and an entire regiment of fearless Spica Janissaries who are trained to fight and die for the Sultanate. The Order’s growing influence is resisted most strongly by Grand Vizier Pasha who has continued to frustrate some of the Order’s more dramatic reform proposals. He blocked their latest request for parity in the religious councils of the Sultanate, and frustrated the Order’s carefully orchestrated plans to place faithful observers within the halls of each of the Emirs and Satraps who govern the outer provinces of the Ottoman domain. While the Order have access to their own unique and advanced technology, they lack the resources of even a small nation and cannot field substantial armies or fleets of their own. They are growing in influence and confidence in this area however and already their Retaj class Portalships along with the patrolling Cor Carolus destroyers are proving to be a boon to Sultanate naval operations. Though the Order usually only deploy a handful of these vessels to any given campaign, it cannot be long before their influence in the Sultanate provides the necessary shipyards and workers to rectify this. The technologically advanced Retaj class Portalship. A rare but impressive ally to the Sultanate in their naval ambitions. Mysterious and lethal, these silent hunters have no discernable crew on deck and never respond to communications from other Sultanate vessels. The Order are but a small element of the Sultanate faction (virtually a niche within a niche!), but their very existence in Dystopian Wars helps draw the narrative threads of the Dystopian Age together into a rich tapestry. Expect to see a smattering of Order units supplementing the Sultanate’s varied forces in Lost World Exodus as well as Armoured Clash in the years to come. Stuart View the full article
  2. Even in the modern world of the 1920’s there are still foreboding forests and dark corners of the countryside that are best left unexplored - especially at night! Let’s see what unnatural horrors lie in wait for Mythos players… Watch out, watch out, there are Wyldborne about! Mythos - coming to a tabletop near you in 2020! Naturalists and biologists will say that Nature is a living thing in perfect balance. But what they do not realise is that such harmony has only been reached through the influence of the ancient force known as the Wyld. This power was worshipped in its own right in ages past and even today can be found in the roots of many more… civilised religions. The Wyldborne still remember the old ways, however, and all the raw power that comes from those who walk in its shadow. Dorothy Good was raised in the Old Lore along with her sister, Mercy. Her mother would have had it no other way. When Dorothy was of age she began to listen to the Wyld in the forest. As the woodland willed her to, Dorothy laced the family soup with the fungi she had foraged the previous night. All of them fell deathly ill and, as promised, her parents quickly succumbed to the toxins. But for Dorothy and her sister, they awoke changed. Now the forest speaks to her every night. The Wyld has such plans for the Wyldborne… The serpents Blood and Nadrageel visited Good home the night after her parents died. Nature wastes nothing. Once the reptiles had fed, the sacrifice Dorothy had made to the Wyld bound the snakes to her service. Blood has become virtually inseparable from Dorothy, while his sibling (mirroring Dorothy’s relationship with her own sister) prefers to hunt independently and alone. Even so, at a glance, Blood and Nadrageel know when their mistress needs them to hunt down and hold someone fast… and when to feed. A literal avatar of the Wyld, Sernos is a terrifying amalgam of beast and nightmare. Known in antiquity as ‘the Goat’, Sernos has stalked the shadowy forests since before mankind could form words to name him. Waxing strong as the Wyld is nourished by the 20 million dead from the Great War, now that Dorothy has begun to gather the Wyldborne, Sernos answers the call. Sernos the Goat in all his feral majesty. The barrow-witch Mercy Good might be the older sister but she lacks the temperament to lead the Wyldborne. Mercy is all aggression and primal fury. She revels in murder and bloodshed wherever it might find release. Only the call of the Wyld compels her to serve alongside her sister, though the same voices that drive Dorothy to plot and scheme do nothing but fuel Mercy’s rage. Loren is a Nuckalavee. These mythical creatures have a rapacious hunger which causes them to hunt deer and other prey in the deep forests. Stepping between shadows and preferring to hunt by moonlight, Loren is nonetheless a capable member of the Wyldborne. Strong and perceptive, Loren understands the power of the Wyld all too well. As long has her voracious appetites are sated she can be relied upon to fearlessly attempt any task that Dorothy Good may require of her. The Wyldborne are much more than a force of nature. They are servants of the ancient force that dwells in the shadowed corners of the world. With bestial guile, they make their move out into the wider Mythos setting. Stay tuned for more before the tabletop skirmish horror hits stores in early 2020. Until next time. Stuart View the full article

  7. For the first time, Warcradle Studios brought Wild West Exodus to Essen, Spiel. From the stand to miniatures, painting and sculpting, Warcradle Studios could not be more proud of how well Spiel 2017 went for Wild West Exodus! The demo team were out in force at Spiel; Daren, Joel, Will, and Simon worked extremely hard delivering demos to happy Wild West Exodus players over the four days. They were a joy to watch and, as shown by the smiling faces taking part, an absolute blast to take part in! We're hoping to see more new faces on our social pages, as well a down your local FLGS, and I can almost guarantee it will be because of these great guys. If you missed the demo team at Spiel, but would love to learn how to play by watching a demo of Wild West Exodus, we are looking to run even more Trailblazer events at local stores and clubs! Check out our Trailblazer page for more information. The Incredible Tabitha Lyons was on our stand as Rani Nimue and as Countess Byron - a new cosplay designed by Artyfakes especially for Spiel! We think they did a great job of bringing the Countess to life, what do you think? Check out the full gallery here to see the amazing transformation of Tabitha into the Countess. This time we mixed the panels to show off some of our newer character artwork. Two popular artwork was that of the new Celestials and of Countess (due to Tabitha, of course). Check out the gallery below to see all of the character artwork on display at Spiel. How can we come to Spiel without showing you what our studio painter and 3D digital sculptor got up to! Did you go to Spiel 2017? What would you like to see Warcradle Studios bring to their next event? Let us know in the comments below! View the full article
