The feeling of excitement and the rush of blood as you venture into the unknown, I’m not just talking about the feelings you get opening your Model Box, I’m talking about the feeling you get when traversing the Wild West….why you may ask? Because it was the theme of June’s Model Box!
Why the Wild West?
There is a lot to be said about the Wild West genre in our hobby, The Wild West was filled with brave men and women who shaped the history of the US (and also a few cowards along the way!) which leads to great potential for creating a gang of your own filled with misfits, outlaws, lawmen and Native Americans who wouldn’t like appeal of such a dangerous crew? with such a diverse collection of miniatures it really was difficult to choose which companies would feature in our box.
Who’s in the box?
We knew we wanted to feature Wild West Exodus! They have recently changed hands to Warcradle Games who are doing some amazing work on rebooting the game with a brand spanking new rule book at the end of the year!
“Wild West Exodus is a dynamic, fast-paced semi-skirmish game
pitting a cast of brutal characters against each other in a world very much
like our own, but twisted by the forces of deepest evil. Characters in Wild
West Exodus are balanced upon the edge of a knife, a horrible death waiting
patiently on either side. They move swiftly across the table, they fight with
frightening speed and lethal skill, and they die abruptly.
An advanced D10 system is coupled with an innovative Influence mechanic to simulate the powers of the Dark Council upon their unwitting pawns. Players must choose how they will gamble with the power of their patrons: spread the Influence throughout a turn, hoping to ease destiny onto a brighter path, or hold the influence, to be entirely cast upon one roll of the dice?
Wild West Exodus is a 35mm steampunk miniatures game set in the Wild West of America and is an action packed game of gunslingers, lawmen, outlaws, mad scientists, aliens and more! It is currently in beta testing for the Second Edition with our active Wild West Exodus fan community where the excitement is extremely high.
The Second Edition is due for release in September 2017 and we have an action packed schedule planned up to this release and beyond!”
We featured such a huge variation of their miniatures in this box that it would be easier to show you just a few of what you could have received:
Dead Man’s Hand
Dead Man’s Hand is a 28mm skirmish game set in the Wild West by Great Escape Games.
You would have received a single character from their gangs range. Below are a few examples of what you may have found in your box!
Crusader Miniatures are a UK based company making 28mm sized metal figures, all designed and sculpted by Mark Sims and can be purchased through Northstar Miniatures.
Your box included 1 of 3 packs from their Wild West collection.
We love working with TT Combat as they literally cater to every genre in the industry! What says the Wild West more than a beautifull mdf building like they’re Bank, Sheriff’s Office or Saloon?
We have wanted to include Foundry Paints in our box for a long time and thought the Wild West box to be the perfect introduction! They have a great range of paints and if you hadn’t noticed our theme all the paints were chosen to be used along side your Wild West minis! Rawhide Brown for example!
We hope you loved the Wild West box as much as we did and can’t wait to see your painted models!
