The folks at Warcradle have released a whole bunch of new Pre-Order Products for all manner of different factions in the world of Wild West Exodus. So, we dived in to take a look at some of them. The full list of pre-order products can be found HERE.
Leading the way we have the Caballeros who are resplendent in their wide-brimmed sombreros. They look rather swish, all of them presented as gunfighters in action poses for the tabletop. Each set actually comes with alternative posing and weapon options for the set meaning that you can mix and match to suit your needs.
Things then get very weird as we introduce the likes of the Constructed Menials here. You could imagine they are going to be a lot of fun to paint up with an almost deathly look to them.
If you’re looking to mix things up with a little more Sci-Fi then that is where the Drain Myriad come in with their uber-Sci-Fi looking weapons and armour. I’d be very tempted to even start thinking about using these guys away from Wild West Exodus in other Sci-Fi games you know – they look great for Greys.
Next up we have the Plains Stalkers, which are much more in my wheelhouse. I love the look of the Native Americans that Wild West Exodus brings to the table and they’d be a great way to explore painting brighter colours and of course plenty of tattoos and warpaint.
Getting back to the idea of gunslingers we also have the Raider Cutthroats. Once again, the action poses are something we need to see more of when it comes to tabletop games and it’s nice to see it here.
The same look and feel to the miniatures carry over into the Ranger Veterans. But, there’s a unit that I was totally won over by…
…here we have the Reaver Headhunters.
They look a little bit like Orcs or Hobgoblins which is great but added to a Sci-Fi and Weird world instead. The awesome heavy axes look great and you could imagine them going loco as they dive into combat.
The Spica are one of the more focused and interestingly characterful sets from the pre-orders too. Each of them feels like an individual character that you could see being the main character in an action movie.
Last but not least we have the Union Armoured Guard. A nice bit of ‘normality’ returns as we take a look at these chaps. You could imagine them breaking out of a trench somewhere and charging towards the enemy.
As mentioned above each of these sets can be found HERE and you will also see some alternative photos of each of the units as well to give you an indication of their posing and weapon options.
The Action & Adventure Deck has also been added to the mix for this pre-order period too. It represents one of the most interaction and dynamic aspects of the game on the tabletop.
What do you think of the new releases?
