  1. What does the month of September have in store for fans of Wild West Exodus, Mythos and those who enjoy building the perfect tabletop setting? A whole host of goodies. Wild West Exodus: Legendary Cloud Runner For fans of Warrior Nation, September sees the release of Legendary Cloud Runner. She and her enormous hawk, named Oniya, assist forces as aerial scouts, looking for signs of invaders and interlopers, and directing warriors to where they are most needed. Regularly calling upon other great spirit energy beasts, such as the Fire Eagle (or Great Thunderbird) to serve during battles, helping to bring Death from Above. The Great Spirit manifests itself in many different ways. Spirit Walkers have the ability to alter their physical form into that of a hybrid between man and animal. Some in the Warrior Nation are blessed with the ability to move and control the flow of their life energy like Shaman such as Chief Raven Spirit. Read the full description here. Price: £25.00 Mythos the Game: Odani Travellers For followers of Mythos, September bestows the gift of a new faction: Odani Travellers. Embodying everything it means to be a real "freak of nature", the Odani are dangerously charming - not only for those confronting them on the tabletop. Skilful misdirection is one of the Odani's strengths, if you didn’t plan on collecting these miniatures for your games, prepare to welcome this enchanting mix of miniatures into your painting projects lineup! The future may not be read with impunity. The threads of destiny for a person are wrapped through the days of their lives, known only to the omniscient beings known to their followers as the Fates. The secrets of the Fates are hidden from the eyes of mere mortals and only those with the gift of Mythos may begin to lift that veil. Read the full description here. Price: £35.00 New Terrain: Gloomburg Sprawl Set If you're a fan of fantasy and historical wargames, you're going to love the new tabletop scenery set, coming out at the end of September. The new Gloomburg Sprawl Set offers six new charming pieces of 28mm full-colour scenery - for spending less time setting the scene, and more time gaming. The mists curl and eddy around the dark village as a gentle breeze disturbs the deserted streets. The only sounds are the crows who gather on several roofs. Shadowed figures move in the darkness, hollow-eyed inhabitants of a once-thriving market town. What evil could have wrought this change? What will you find lurking in the gatehouse at the edge of town? Read the full description here. Price: £100.00 Legendary Cloud Runner, the Odani Travelers faction set and the Gloomburg Sprawl set are all available to pre-order now, and are due to be released at the end of September 2020.

  2. Get ready to set the tabletop scene with new plastic scenic bases and sets of super buildings initially only available in the Super City Downtown bundle. All available to pre-order from today, with your FLGS and online at Wayland Games. New Plastic Scenic Bases With the new miniatures base sets from Warcradle Studios, your force will not only look the part as you move into position on the tabletop, but they'll stand out from your opponents. While both of the new miniatures base sets are incredibly detailed, there are a few unique and interesting differences between them. There are two base themes inside each of the sets, for use with or without the iconic Warcradle Plinth bases - also included! Mesa & Frontier Town Base Set The Mesa & Frontier Town base set provides a textured, sandy terrain option, with a mix of highly detailed features varying from pistols and skulls and to the remains of foes.

If you've been looking for the perfect base inserts for your Wild West Exodus miniatures, these bases will more than suffice! Available in small or medium. Medium Enhance your miniatures with these highly detailed plastics base accessories. These can either be used as toppers for the Warcradle Plinth bases or as stand alone bases for any miniatures. Price: £20.00 Swamp & Industrial Base Set The Swamp & Industrial base set brings out the best of a murky bayou with exposed roots ravaging the muddy waters, rotting wooden planks, and the skulls of those that dared to venture ahead. The second theme for this set provides a platform for sci-fi, pulp/horror miniature figures and features a host of pipework and congregated metal flooring for your miniatures to stand atop - with some more RJ canisters thrown in for good measure. Not only is this set fitting for the Hex in Wild West Exodus, but it's also compatible with many more miniatures games. Available in small or medium. Medium Enhance your miniatures with these highly detailed plastics base accessories. These can either be used as toppers for the Warcradle Plinth bases or as stand alone bases for any miniatures.

  3. We've got new releases lined up for Wild West Exodus and Mythos so without further ado, let's have a look at the miniatures due to be released at the end of August! Wild West Exodus: Legendary Morgan Earp The youngest of the Earp brothers has had a legendary makeover. From today, you can pre-order Legendary Morgan Earp for Wild West Exodus. Resculpted and emboldened by his new mechanical body, courtesy of Nikolai Tesla, he stands proud, taller, and poised for tabletop action. His miniature embodies everything it means to be a superpowered man of steel. With extraordinary guns fused to both hands, this miniature is the perfect addition to any Lawmen Posse. You may be thinking, who's that is with Morgan? Well, in true Scarface style, say hello to Morgan's little friend! Assisting this marvellous mechanical man in every tabletop battle is his trusty HWK Automata, Hawkshaw. Designed to repair machines, Hawkshaw also acts as a decoy, flushing out enemies for Morgan to shoot and destroy. What happens if you pair them with a few K9's? You get a force not to be reckoned with. Of course. Be sure to pre-order this dynamic duo to quite literally bring some Armoured Justice to the town of Red Oak. You can find an FLGS using our store locator or shop online from our website and Wayland Games. Due to be released at the end of August 2020. Looking to collect more of the Earp brothers? You'll find the notable Wyatt in his legendary form here, and the well-respected Virgil alongside Kyle the Black in the Meat Grinder Posse. Mythos The Game: Silver Venators Have you succumbed to the madness that is Mythos? Do you hunger for more factions to collect? Then we have good news. It's time to introduce another faction joining the Shadow War and the miniatures that form: the Silver Venators. The Venators arrived around the same time as the Custos Crypta. They're a coven of masked huntresses who travel the angles of time as their master's demand. Each Venator is entrusted with a silvered key, an object attuned to their masters and own Mythos energies. Exploiting the powers of portal travel, they're able to emerge at preordained points in time to destroy followers of the Old Ones. These powerful women of wonder are protectors of destiny with one aim: restore the flow of time and bring order to the chaos caused by the Shadow War. At. All. Costs. Their miniatures are purposely cloaked, disguised by dark hooded robes and reflective silver face coverings to evoke anonymity and unease. Intensified by the large, brightly polished weapons that they wield. The addition of two Tyndaly'th Hounds completes the Silver Venators Faction Starter Set. Once a victim has been marked by the Venators sword, they can call on these dreadful and difficult beasts. But, only ever as a weapon of last resort or they risk falling prey themselves... Be sure to pre-order the unrelenting Silver Venators from your FLGS or online at Wayland Games to add them to your Mythos miniatures collection. Due to be released at the end of August 2020.

  4. Today we welcome characters ready to embrace their new abilities onto the tabletop. How will their miniatures fare in the warfare of Wild West Exodus and Mythos? Let's get into it. Mr Ears When we first previewed this sculpt, it was wildly popular, and now he's finally joining the frontier. Introducing Girauld Eres, a Parisian naturalist with a real passion for animal physiology. Blessed by an impossible solution to a previous accident, he now identifies as ‘Mr Ears’! He's not only a great ape, but he's also a killer gorilla whose miniature is full of character (look at that hat) and intent. Wielding the technology of the Enlightened, this intriguing primate is available to pre-order from today. Mr Ears is almost ready to embark on his journey to Antarctica, but first, he's to reunite with his old friends Katherine Holst, Warwick Hudson and the rest of the Soul Hunters in the Wild West. Girauld Eres was one such associate, a Parisian naturalist who had developed into a minor celebrity as he toured Paris society with his collection of primates. Girauld’s real passion lay in animal physiology and his personal menagerie was home to some impressive specimens. Showing a talent for specimen capture, he was approached by Warick Hudson and earned a sponsorship into the Covenant as an associate following his collaboration on the spectral containment technology with Hudson and Katherine Holst.

Price: £23.00 Brotherhood of Belial Starter Set It started with a mission to rid the streets of a small gang of deviants, responsible for a series of unspeakable crimes. But now has manifested into a rebirth of hosts for the ancient power of the chiropteran god, Belial. Winging their way into the Shadow War, the Brotherhood of Belial - the sixth faction to be released for Mythos - is now available to pre-order. Jim Dugan, accompanied by sergeant Maria Marquez, Oliver Driver and Florence Delaney and the monstrous Dan Flack complete the Brotherhood. These officers carry the curse bequeathed to them, their miniatures sporting demonic claws and lesions caused by tainted energy. Harnessing their newfound power, they continue to serve the city, unwittingly nurturing the dark embrace of god Belial. For better or worse. Augusta, Maine was a sleepy city with a low crime rate that was dealt with at a leisurely pace by the municipal police department. That is until one winter, when a spate of vicious crimes hit Augusta leaving a bloody trail of destruction in their wake. Murders, beatings, rapes and numerous muggings were perpetrated by what appeared to be a small gang of deviants. Read the full description here. Price: £35.00 You can pre-order Mr Ears and the Brotherhood of Belial Starter Set with your FLGS, just use our store locator to find your closest one, and online at Wayland Games now - these pre-orders are due to be released at the end of July 2020.

  5. Today we announce new miniatures sets for Wild West Exodus and Mythos, and a tabletop city fit for Super Heroes. Don't delay, to find out more about the miniatures and terrain available to pre-order from today; keep scrolling. Wrath of the Nautilus Detachment Everybody's favourite captain: the legendary Rani Nimue* now has a crew of her very own. She and her highly skilled team are ready to impart the ‘Wrath of the Nautilus’ as Outlaws of the Wild West. This exciting new Posse not only embraces the classic steampunk look but exudes Pirate-Esque charm. Pre-order now to embark on your next tabletop skirmish in Wild West Exodus. It's only a matter of time before the Crown sends the instruction for Wrath of the Nautilus to head north, the Enlightened Soul Hunters won't be the only detachment investigating the Lost World! Born under the Raj in Delhi, Rani Nimue had a turbulent childhood. Her English-born father worked for the diplomatic service and moved across the country to wherever Her Majesty required him, his wife and only child dutifully following. At the height of the Indian Mutiny, Rani’s mother was killed and her father was faced with the difficult task of raising his daughter alone. Read the full description here. Price: £35.00 *Looking for the legendary miniature of Captain Nimue? Head to the Wild West Exodus store to order Legendary Rani Nimue. Custos Crypta Faction Starter Set From the depths of the dark, mysterious Crypt to the streets of Dunsmouth, welcome the gruesome grubs and unworldly creatures that form the Custos Crypta. Today, under the control of the Crypt Guardian, these skin-crawling characters join the shadow war of Mythos. The Custos Crypta extends its influence by mentally compelling humans, drawing in mortal servants and expanding on their formidable biology - some may say they’re the most “encaptivating” Mythos faction to date. Be sure to pre-order the Custos Crypta Faction Starter Set, to see how these elusive insects fare on the tabletop. The story of the Custos Crypta begins in the year 700 BCE at the height of the Kushite Empire when the authority of Pharaoh Neferkare Shabaka was considered absolute. Shabaka was said to be blessed by the ancient Egyptian Goddess Khepera. It was in Khepera’s name that Shabaka ruled, from Nubia to the Nile Delta and a blood sacrifice was made daily in his name. Read the full description here. Price: £35.00 Super City Downtown Set Finally, we finish on something marvellous: the Super City Downtown Set arrives as a unique Warcradle Scenics product, scaled to fit the awesome Marvel: Crisis Protocol.

It is your job, brave heroes, to defeat them without levelling half the city. Good luck! Price: £100.00 That's it for now!

  6. As the situation with the coronavirus COVID-19 continues to develop and the United Kingdom enters a further extended period of social isolation, we've been following the advice and instruction of the Government closely. As we announced previously, we have already shut down our in-house manufacturing department until we are confident it is right for our team to be able to return to work. The safety of our staff is paramount, and last week we decided it's in the best interest of the wider team to close the rest of the Studio too. As you may remember, back in February, we shared an update with you regarding the current state of events. The effect of this resulted in a delay in our plans in the second quarter of the year to launch the new edition of Dystopian Wars. The continued disruption caused in response to the pandemic means we must reschedule our plans through to the end of the third quarter too. You may hear from those in the Warcradle Studios team who are working remotely, keeping in touch with the community through social media during this time and putting together occasional Studio Diaries for the blog (like this one). That aside, all development, playtesting and design work at Warcradle Studios is on pause until we are confident it is practical and safe to resume. Those of you ordering directly from our retail partners and ourselves can rest assured you'll still receive your in-stock item(s). With a great deal of care, we have put processes in place to protect our warehouse and logistics staff so we can continue to dispatch in-stock orders, with as small a delay as possible. Warcradle products listed as "being reprinted" may be significantly delayed, as a result of us closing our in-house manufacturing department at this time. Nevertheless, these will be of high-priority when we're back up and running. Of course, our customer support team are still available to contact and are ready to answer any questions you might have, so don't hesitate to get in touch should you need to. We'll be keeping you all up-to-date as the situation develops, so be sure to keep an eye on our blog and social media. Of particular regret is that while the rules for Firestorm Armada are ready for our intended Open Beta in May, we must now accept that without a Studio running to support the Beta, and with players facing challenges in arranging even a simple gaming session to playtest, we must delay the launch until the Studio returns to full operation and the social distancing guidelines become less restrictive. We will announce a new date as soon as possible. In the interim, we hope to be discussing various rules and concepts through our social media pages as well as on the Studio Diary blog entries. Call it a pre-Beta Beta… Whatever Warcradle hobby you are enjoying this month, whether you're tackling your new Mythos models, assembling Theodore Roosevelt on his reptilian steed, or painting fleets of classic Dystopian Wars or Firestorm Armada ships, be sure to share your results with us and the rest of the community. This hobby of ours has an amazing ability to bring joy and light into even the most challenging of times. We hope you find that moment of hobby happiness in whatever you choose to do. Thank you all for your continued support and understanding during this unprecedented situation. Now more than ever, please take care of yourselves and each other. Stuart and the Warcradle Studios Team View the full article
  7. It's time to reveal the 2020 event miniature resembling a famous figure from history; it's Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt! Those of you that guessed correctly from the misty image we shared, bravo. Racing through the jungle on his Trodon steed, an incredible prehistoric-looking creature, Theodore Roosevelt is ready to venture into the wider Dystopian Age. You'll be able to purchase Theodore online direct from the Wild West Exodus website after 9:30 am (UK Time) on the 26th of March. At the moment, this miniature will be available to purchase online-only, due to the event schedule changing rapidly in line with the current Coronavirus situation - more on that below. There's no denying this is a magnificent miniature and an excellent addition to any collection, take a look: Theodore Roosevelt - Lost World Explorer “Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat." Price: £17.00 Theodore Roosevelt - Lost World Explorer, is the 2020 event-promotional miniature by Warcradle Studios. Just like Jadzia before him, Theodore's designed for use in both Wild West Exodus and forthcoming Lost World Exodus. If there are no events, how can I get the miniature? Of course, this year is a little more complicated as the event schedule is changing rapidly in line with the global Coronavirus situation. Both Adepticon in the US, and Salute in the UK, are cancelled for 2020. The next show we were going to attend, the UK Games Expo, is now rescheduled for later this year. We've worked hard to make the miniature available to players in a way that is fair but still keeps it an exclusive promotional release. The 2020 promotional miniature will go on sale online from the 26th March 2020 at www.store.wildwestexodus.com. The miniature will remain available to purchase online until the end of the next show that Warcradle Studios attends. At the moment that looks like GenCon 2020 in Indianapolis ending on the 2nd of August. Of course, this may change, in which case the 2020 promotional miniature will remain available online until the close of the show following that. As of right now, the next show we will attend after GenCon 2020 looks to be the UK Games Expo commencing on the 21st of August until the 23rd of August. What happens once shows are back up-and-running? At the end of the next show, Warcradle Studio attends, availability of the 2020 promotional miniature will return back-to-normal; the miniature will only be available for the duration of each show we attend. For details about the events that we'll be attending during the 2020/2021 season, keep an eye on our blog and socials, and be sure to check the Warcradle Studios community calendar regularly.

  8. Our 2020 promotional event miniature is almost ready to come out of hiding, and we are excited for you to see it for yourselves. This year, the miniature is based on a famous figure from our own history. Can you guess who? View the full article
  9. Embrace the Hex. Marie Laveau is supreme. At long last, we welcome the self-proclaimed queen of the Nazombu, Marie Laveau, and her companion’s to Wild West Exodus! She holds sway over hundreds of families, not as a dictator but as a mother, sister and friend. The form she wears is but a glamour, a product of her ‘Magick’ that allows her to interact with outsiders without them running in abject terror from her monstrous true nature. Court Of The Nazombu is the name of her Posse, a new set for the Hex, consisting of the queen herself, her now-dependable husband, a devoted voodoo priestess and oracle, and finally, the master of the dead. Laveau and her Nazombu Warriors often take safe-haven in the swamp-lands of the Nazombu Bayou, thriving among the Rotten Jetties and Abandoned Shacks, drawing power from essence embued Hexaliths. Today also sees two new support units available to pre-order; Raider/Hex Sharpshooters and Deputised Support Team. All of next month’s releases are available to pre-order online now and from your FLGS - to be released on the 25th January 2020. Don’t forget, our seasonal miniatures (and Max) have returned; they’re available to purchase from the Wild West Exodus webstore and from your FLGS now, until the 31st of December. The Court of Nazombu Posse The power of the Hex can be a subtle influence on those who only occasionally draw on its energies. To those like Marie Laveau and her coterie who fully embrace the entity, they wield awesome power. Across the bayous of Louisianna, the self-proclaimed queen of the Nazombu, Marie Laveau is supreme. She holds sway over hundreds of families, not as a dictator but as a mother, sister and friend. This has been the way for generations, ever since a strange egg was found deep in the swamps. Read the full description here. Price: £35.00 Deputised Support Team The budget and funding to supply Deputies is sporadic, to say the least. Most deputies typically bring their own shooting irons with them if they are called up, but some situations call for the big guns to be unpacked. Read the full description here. Price: £15.00 Raider / Hex Sharpshooters While revolvers and rifles are commonplace throughout the West, heavier, more specialist weapons can be difficult to come by. Many outlaws simply steal the weapons they need while others carry relics from the Ore War that have been lovingly maintained over the intervening years. Read the full description here.

  10. From the fairy lights around her mechanical steed’s neck to the present filled sack on her back, Madre Navidad is not only bringing a highly flammable pudding to your tabletop; she's bringing a whole lot of Holiday Cheer. This very merry alternative sculpt of Madre Monica Perez is the Outlaw claiming this year's festive crown. If you successfully guessed the 2019 festive miniature from The Countdown clues, congratulations! Now, let's take a closer look. Introducing Madre Navidad Dashing through the snow on her heavily armoured 'reindeer', Madre Navidad can often be seen delivering toys to well-behaved children in the farmsteads around Rio Senora. The thunder heard late at night is said to be the Madre destroying Hex-Beasts and other abominations with her explosive puddings. Can’t have that cake and eat it, Hex! The red eye-lights of her mechanical steed lead the way through even the darkest of nights taking her to wherever she is needed most - this is one 'reindeer' you'll want to join in on all of your Wild West Exodus games. Only available throughout December, Madre Navidad is the third special edition miniature from Warcradle Studios, for the festive period. It's the return of Kyle, Max and Krampus! Alongside this cracking new model, Kyle the Red & White with his beard so snowy white, and Krampus Rex with his horned shadow bringing fright also make their return. Not forgetting Max, the particularly quirky K9 Attack Dog. If you're looking to collect all three seasonal miniatures and Max, they'll be available to purchase until the 31st of December.

  11. “Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire . . . is . . . soooooo . . . delightfuuuuuul…” - Bud “Scorcher” Hutch It’s that time of year again folks! The evenings are drawing in and the chill of winter is starting to creep into your bones. It must be time for the Warcradle Festive Miniature! As a reminder of years gone by I would like to begin by taking a look at our previous offerings. Our first Festive Miniature was Kyle the Red and White. This lovable old rogue would slide down your chimney and steal all your presents, but he will also act as an alternative boss for your games of Wild West Exodus along with his little helper, Max the K9 Automata. Ho! Ho! Holy mother of . . . Who is that?! Last year we treated you to this tasty little morsel - Krampus Rex. This particularly nasty looking chap will definitely add some spice to your Christmas punch. Again not only is Krampus Rex a great miniature to paint and collect, but you can also use him as a Boss in your Wild West Exodus games. Ice creams! Lollipops! All free today… For our third Festive Miniature, we ran a campaign that finished at the end of October, the outcome of which decided the faction we would choose the miniature from. This means that you, the players, could affect the outcome by playing games with your chosen faction. The winning faction for that campaign was the Outlaws, so we picked an Outlaw Boss to re-invent for this year’s Festive Season. After some (not a lot actually) deliberation we decided on Madre Monica Perez to be this year’s miniature and we’ve named her Madre Navidad. Of course, we needed to add a little bit of Christmas Magic so we have given her a Christmas Pudding packed with explosives, a festive wreath for her shield, fairy lights, a Santa hat and a sack full of toys (with another little surprise inside). We also converted her Blackhoof into a reindeer with some RJ powered antlers. Madre Navidad - ready to spread Christmas cheer and shrapnel We hope you like Madre Navidad and if so keep your eyes peeled for the official announcement tomorrow. Stay tuned for next week’s Studio Diary, Chris View the full article
  12. We’re counting down to the reveal of the 2019 Festive miniature, what could it be?

Head to the Warcradle Studios blog to see when each clue will be revealed! The first clue is: Can You Guess The Outlaw? Head to The Dark Council to if you think you know the identity of this year's seasonal character. Find the post and add your guess to the comments section. You’ll have to wait until the end of November to find out if you’ve guessed correctly though!
  13. 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
  14. On Saturday 19th October, 14 players from across the country congregated in Southampton with the sole aim of fighting for the UK Gunslinger Masters, it had all the makings of an exciting and enjoyable tournament. Now is probably a good time to mention that this is only the second year that the event has run, however, it had the attributes of a far more well-established affair, one that I hope will grow and continue to run for many years to come. We were fortunate enough to have attracted a good mix of players. We’d hoped for a range of factions, so we were pleased with the final numbers, with the players finalised, we were ready to begin. We were all eager to get going, and so dived straight into three rounds of games without hesitation, all of which lasted for 2 hours. Firstly, we got started with a ‘Stake a claim’ scenario, next up was ‘Send a message’ and finally, we finished up with ‘Supply run’. Experiencing a mix of posses really gave the games something special in my opinion! I particularly enjoyed seeing a Union armoured division and also the Christmas themed Wendigo Carcossa posse, and to make matters even better, not a single boss was duplicated. Regardless of any results, it was great to see all of the scenery and miniatures and lovely to spend some time with other Wild West Exodus enthusiasts, it isn’t something many people get to do every day. Annie Mozee is definitely a worthy recipient of ‘star face of the day’, not only did she feature in three of the posses, but she also managed some horrifying shots, like the one where she managed to shoot Stonewall Jackson from the middle of a pack of Gun dogs and Dixie snipers. Alongside Annie, David Richardson and Ben Clouder deserve a special mention for helping to set up. Last, but by no means least, a big thank you to Chris Pond for coming down to help and chat with the players! Leaderboard Summary Of course, a special congratulations is also in order for those players who made it into the top 5, however, in my opinion, congratulations should be extended to all those who took part in the tournament. Take a look at some of the results below. Overall, it was an action-packed day, where everyone seemed to have a brilliant time, and for those reasons, it will definitely be an event to remember. If you’re a fan then take a look at some of the results, and if you haven’t already, be sure to give Wild West Exodus a go, you never know I might see you at another event sometime in the future! ~ Alex, The Warhost The Warhost Volunteer Programme Whether you're looking to take part in Wil West Exodus events or become a Warhost Volunteer and host them, you can register your interest today and find out more.

  15. Introducing the Only God Forgives Posse, lead by Giulianna Starr; those in the group visit The Cat House, Madam Starr’s most prized possession, frequently and help to protect its success, ensure favours are honoured, and secrets kept. You can pre-order this Posse from today. Next. A set of Union Pacifiers / Confederate Terminators! As the name suggests, this set accommodates those looking to add armoured support units to their Union and Outlaw forces. There are enough parts in one box to make two Union Pacifiers or two Confederate Terminators. All of next month’s releases are available to pre-order online now and from your FLGS - to be released on the 30th November 2019. Only God Forgives Posse If the Cat House isn’t the most popular and most patronised establishment in Red Oak then nobody would dare say it within earshot of Giulianna Starr; proprietor and Madam extraordinaire. She has built the business up from nothing over the last decade and while business is booming she has to keep tight control over the whole thing or it will unravel before her eyes. Read the full description here. Price: £35.00 Union Pacifiers / Confederate Terminators The heavy infantry weapons used during the Ore War increased in lethality and portability throughout the conflict. At the end of that bloody struggle, the Union had moved to use the devastating Frag Launchers, while the Confederate troops favoured the Terminator Blasters. Units of Union Pacifiers armed with Frag Launchers are still seen in support of the regular line infantry, clearing fortified positions with their high explosive rounds and even taking out light vehicles.

  16. Guilty as charged. Guilty, why? Because Judge Kingsley Stern says so… Lawmen, Warrior Nation and Hex players, you’re all in for a treat this month as there’s a new Posse set, a Legendary Boss and Support Unit available to pre-order! The Lynch Mob Posse is an entirely new set for Lawmen, focused on bringing justice to the wild west, one Outlaw at a time. Once Judge Kingsley Stern reaches his verdict, his ‘hang ‘em high’ approach to the law means it’s only a matter of time till those convicted face his Gallows or his deputies - ruthless town folk, eager to prove their worth and enforce Stern's way. Pre-order the Lynch Mob Posse from today. The taint of The Hex is a powerful force indeed but nothing can stand in the way of true love. This month sees Legendary Lucretia and Tituba available to pre-order. The arrival of this powerful yet gruesome twosome, bound by the gift of the Hex, calls for more Hex Beasts! And finally, for Warrior Nation, a pair of spectral warriors! Only a few have seen them for more than a fleeting glimpse and even fewer have been able to study them to any reliable degree but from today, you can pre-order a set of Spirit Apparitions for force and more besides. All of next month’s releases are available to pre-order online now and from your FLGS - to be released on the 28th September 2019. Lynch Mob Posse Judge Kingsley Stern is a senior Lawman serving in the territories. He is best described as a roving one-man courtroom, utterly convinced of his own righteousness. He believes that at the heart of each law-abiding man is an outlaw just waiting for his chance. In contrast to High Marshal Earp, Stern is more than eager to give his judgement on any subject and how it pertains to his rigid and unyielding interpretation of the law. Read the full description here. Price: £38.00 Legendary Lucretia and Tituba Bridgetown, Barbados was, until some years back, presided over by Governor James Walker, a deeply religious Scotsman who believed it was his duty to lead his God-fearing residents to a prosperous future. He had several children who enjoyed a strict and puritanical upbringing guided by an evangelical Minister known as Papa Trinity. Walker’s youngest daughter, Lucretia, rebelled strongly against this oppressive lifestyle in her late-teens and found intimate companionship form Tituba, a native Barbadian girl a couple of years her senior. Lucretia would revel in any activity she believed her father would object to and was soon dabbling in fortune-telling and other decidedly non-Puritan activities. Read the full description here. Price: £20.00 Spirit Apparitions In the Dystopian Age, so-called Spirit Apparitions manifest many forms. There has been much speculation both in scientific journals as well as in the penny dreadfuls and newspapers as to the origins of these strange forces but few have seen them for more than a fleeting glimpse and even fewer have been able to study them to any reliable degree.

  21. The time has arrived to welcome the Emissary of the Blazing Sun! Nakano Gozen has served a full year as our very special event promotional miniature and now it’s her time to become part of our regular Wild West Exodus listings. Who is she? Nakano Gozen has lived her entire life in service to the Blazing Sun - the Immortal Empress Shinzua. As a direct descendant of the Empress with a startling likeness, Gozen has been trained extensively in both the martial and diplomatic arts. While her adventurous nature made her unsuitable for a role at court, Gozen was trusted instead with a secret mission to the American Frontier. As Emissary of the Blazing Sun, Nakano Gozen's mission has brought her into contact with both the Lawmen and Outlaws in the Wild West. While she is treated with suspicion by the authorities, her skill with the blade and silver tongue make her a valued ally to the Outlaws. Her interest in the activities of Doctor Carpathian has not gone unnoticed by the Enlightened or Union agents either… How does she play? Although an expensive FACE to add to your posse at a cost of 175 points, Nakano Gozen comes with plenty of Special Rules for those looking for an interesting character to add. Not only is she beneficial to have for both TREASURE HUNTER, allowing you to add +1 to your hand of Adventure Cards while she is in play, and SHREWD STRATEGIST, giving you the ability to spend an Action Point to take a look at the top card from either your Adventure or Action Deck and discard or return it to its rightful place, she is also a killer on the tabletop. Along with a Fight of 7, and a pair of Revenant Katanas with -3 pierce and decapitate, she has the STONE COLD KILLER Special Rule giving her the ability to gain extra Action Points during her turn if she destroys a model. She also has COMBAT MASTER, making her second Combat Action in an Activation only 1 Action Point. This combination makes her lethal in close combat. You can find Nakano Gozen’s full unit card here under: FACES. Strategies The Lawmen have a good selection of faces but the vast majority of them are armed with ranged weapons. While they almost all have an Iron Asp baton, very few are expert close combat fighters. This makes Nakano Gozen a very tempting choice for a Lawman Player. She also has TREASURE HUNTER and SHREWD STRATEGIST (see above) which add some very useful card based abilities to the Posse. Like all close combat specialists, the trick is to get her up close and personal. Once she’s toe to toe with the enemy she will earn every single point you’ve paid for her. Get yours today! Nakano Gozen is up for pre-order now and is released 30th March 2019, you can order her from our online store and your FLGS - prepare yourself for the Emissary’s arrival. What’s this? A little cliffhanger, you say… With Nakano Gozen being released for the public on 30th March, this means one thing - we have a new promotional event miniature incoming in time for AdeptiCon 2019!

  22. This month brings with it an assortment of legendary miniatures and a brand-new posse! Hour of the Wolf is set to be the second Warrior Nation Posse Set for the Second Edition of Wild West Exodus - and includes everyone’s favourite chieftain; Ghost Wolf. Today, we’re taking a closer look at the Hour of the Wolf. Who are they? The Hour of the Wolf posse is led by the insightful and wise Ghost Wolf. For a character who is fond of storytelling and enjoying the company of his extensive family, he is all too often roused to war where his talents are put to a bloodier purpose. Though a powerful Spirit Walker, Ghost Wolf often remains in his mortal form as the Warrior Nation has a great need for his leadership and tactical mind. The wolf within him calls to his kin and often he is always accompanied by a number of his brother wolves. These hunting wolves have been blessed by the Great Spirit to be larger and stronger than their kin as well as possessing more intelligence. They are as fast as the wind and their powerful jaws are potent allies. When they attack in a pack there is little that can stand against them. The wolf spirit ensures he is often accompanied by those Spirit Walkers of the Weylyn who can embrace the animal spirit and aid their chieftain. Ghost Wolf can always rely on the support of Hawkeye and Moonswift, two experienced warriors who are carving out their own legend within the Nation. Hawkeye is second to none with a bow, capable of hitting the eye of a running hare. With a kinship that approaches family, Moonswift is almost as fast as her Hunting Wolf brothers and sisters. Adept at channelling spirit energy, Moonswift is able to leap over her enemies and bury an axe in an exposed flank. How do they play? This Posse likes to get up close and personal. Not only are they good at getting there, all being rather swift of foot, but they can wreak havoc when they do get there. Leveraging Moonswift’s DANCES WITH WOLVES special rule on the Hunting Wolves means they will not only be able to activate via Teamwork but will allow them to Focus their Move and Charge Actions for free. Use all the cover you can and get in quick as, once you are there, these trained warriors will tear your enemies to pieces. View the full article Get yours today! Hour of the Wolf is up for pre-order now and is released 22nd February 2019 so, if you want to get humanity’s greatest hope on the tabletop, order your posse from our online store or your FLGS today. Until the release date, you can take a look at the other sets and miniatures currently released for Warrior Nation!

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

Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £35.00 LEGENDARY IRONTOOTH Irontooth is the youngest of the Warrior Nation's leaders and a man who has grown up within the new society forged by Raven Spirit rather than the old divided tribes that preceded it. From an early age, Irontooth showed great skill and power in the ways of the Great Spirit and he soon took his own path to become a Spirit Priest. This was short lived as only weeks into his training his people were butchered by an interloping Union patrol. Instinct took over and he embraced his Spirit Guide: the Mountain Lion. Irontooth ‘awoke’ to find he was a Spirit Walker and like the lion in his vision, he was soon stalking his enemies, his teeth sinking into flesh and talons ripping his foes open as they fled screaming into the night. While the transformation from man into Spirit Walker is usually achieved only through a long and intense ritual, this change had occurred spontaneously. This gift has even raised an eyebrow from Raven Spirit when he heard tell of it. Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £16.00 LEGENDARY GUSTAVE EIFFEL Over recent years, the field of advanced mechanical augmentations has become an obsession for Gustave Eiffel. Building on his original Widower constructs, he now works feverishly pursuing the next great breakthrough in the field. Reluctantly tearing himself away from his iron wrought creations, Eiffel enters battle piloting a spider-like combat chassis of his own design. Rumours persist that this is but a prototype for a much larger articulated colossus to rival those of the military powers of the world, a machine to stride across the Union bringing the influence of the Enlightened to every part of the continent, and beyond… Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £28.00 LEGENDARY MARIE LAVEAU To the world at large, Marie Laveau is Queen of the Bayou and Vodun priestess to all of New Orleans. Believed to be the latest in a long line of women whose lineage stretches back into the mists of time, even in an age of scepticism and science, her powers defy understanding or explanation. Chanting to dark spirits she dances lewdly while waving her fetish staff and seeds the ground with ingredients taken from the pouches hitched to her belt or strapped about her person on leather thongs. In this way is she able to manifest bolts of corrupt energy, control the beasts of the dark places or summon spectral creatures to do her bidding. Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website. Price: £28.00 LEGENDARY VIRIDIAN ALPHA The Viridian Alpha has ultimate responsibility and control over the martial forces of the Hegemony on Earth. This is a role for which he has been created, a process of genetic manipulation that has refined him into a formidable warrior and tactical genius. While he may not have the flexibility and creativity of humans (two of the attributes that have caused the Hegemony to notice Humans in the first place) his understanding of warfare is second to none and while the strikes and feints of the Watchers may seem random they are always part of a larger strategy. Please note: Miniatures are supplied unpainted and some assembly will be required. Character Unit Cards are not included and can be found on the Wild West Exodus website.
