A number of new characters that we’ve been looking at over the last few weeks are now available to pre-order from Warcradle for Wild West Exodus to be released in June. Plus, some new attack dogs too!
First up we have the Legendary Walks Looking here above who is striding forward with swords at the ready, capable of cutting you into little pieces with her superhuman skill. Each of the Legendary characters like Walks Looking is made of resin and represent larger than life representations of the characters from the game.
The same, of course, goes to this Viridian Alpha from the alien Watcher faction in the game.
I really like this one, standing on a pile of bones. While they don’t exactly fit into the aesthetic of the universe at first glance with their more Sci-Fi look I think folks have come to like them as an alternative faction in the game.
Last but not least for the Legendary characters we have Marie Laveau who has certainly chosen a different path as she was transformed.
Here she can be seen squeezing the life out of some poor unfortunate soul as she slithers forth, commanding her army into battle. Each of these is going to provide you with a fun challenge when it comes to painting as they all feature interesting techniques to practice.
For example, Walks Looking will challenge your ability to paint skin, possibly tattoos and maybe a bit of object source lighting. The Viridian Alpha is covered in metallic armour so you could work on shading and highlighting. Getting the wet look might be the way forward with Marie Leveau!
Loose The Hounds
Chasing your enemies across the tabletop for The Enlightened we have these new K9 Dogs. They come in both ranged and melee flavours with the Gun Dogs…
…and the Attack Dogs.
While I don’t particularly like the design and look of the Gun Dogs I really like the style for the Attack Dogs. The fanged metal maw of the one on the left is awesome and gives it an almost alien feel which is then contrasted by the doberman-styled second dog.
I think if I was playing as The Enlightened I’d drop some of these into my force.
What do you think?
