Wild West Exodus

Recommended Posts

Has anyone actually played WWX?  I can't say that I'm overly impressed with the models, but interesting/different gameplay always piques my interest.  Anything new or novel here?

 

Not that I need any more miniatures games....

Sorry, I shied away from the game completely when they started developing and changing the rules in the first kickstarter. Rule writing by committee is never a good thing. That being said I frequent a number of other forums and I have yet to see an example of play or an AAR of the game.

The Beasts of War site has been pushing it pretty heavily. They have several discussions going on about it over there.

 

Edit: I checked to see if their demo coverage is exclusive, and it's not. Anybody can watch their demo game videos. (Some other videos are locked; Backstage Pass required.)

Thanks.  Maybe I'll check out a video or two.  I really don't give a lot of credence to what BoW thinks though.  I frequently get the feeling that they like some things simply because they are getting something in return.  But a play through example should be fine.

BoW is no different then any other tech or video game site so they are mostly a promotional tool for companies, you'll never hear them say something bad about the game but you will see the hosts mention if they're just not into a game or not. They also, from what I can tell, probably wouldn't bash a game or company even if they weren't getting free stuff and paid advertising as they do seam like the type that would rather talk enthusiastically about the hobby over being overly negative.

 

Their demo videos are very good though as they usually have company representatives there to help with the demos so you can get a very good understanding of how they play.

 

 

As to WWX. I've got a buddy that owns a bunch, really likes the figures and scale (35mm\0 scale) but I don't think he's ever played--just used them for his Iron Kingdoms RPG.

I have been impressed with the minis from the first KS, but have never played. I backed this one, but at a much lower level as i was less impressed with the selections. I like some of the golden army stuff from this KS, so will select it, a few individuals, and the women of the west add on that opened up at the end.

 

Btw i thought they had a lot of WWX gaming (maybe even a tournament) at Adepticon.

I think BoW is honest enough. They will give a lukewarm reception to something they don't think is great, though they won't rag on it. They certainly don't edit user critiques in the comments. My impression is that they will rather try to avoid something that doesn't excite them, rather than give it a bad review.

 

My problem with BoW is that they are basically a constant shill for the Evil Empire. No matter how badly that company treats them (they've shut them down and taken legal action against BoW), they not only slink back like beaten dogs, they kiss even more butt each time. And they perpetuate all the sorts of myths the worst fanboys do.

 

Except for Roman, the guy who does paint tutorials. He is vocal about his distaste for the Evil Empire, and very supportive of just about everybody else.

 

All that said, I don't know how any of it would hurt your ability to decide for yourself whether you like WWX by going to their site. They demo it. That's hardly brainwashing. They show great, big color pictures, so you can see it all and judge for yourself. And their comments sections will have plenty of people advising if they think it sucks. It's not like you're going to be overwhelmingly talked into anything - LOL.

      It took me ages to choose a colour scheme for the Valkeeri Leader. I eventually decided on Army Painter Shining Silver to go with the whole pulp scifi theme, and VGC Warlock Purple because why not. I was worried the silver bits of her uniform would look like armour instead of metallic cloth but I think it's turned out OK. For once I managed to get her eyes to a decent standard and her hair came out looking good too. Her gun is VMC Brass, toned down with VGC Sepia Wash and Liquitex matte varnish. Her lips are a tiny dab of VMC Brown Rose.
       
      I forgot about her cape until I was finished with her, so it got a few thin coats of Warlock Purple and then began the fun and games of gluing it to the figure. Four attempts later I got it in what I hope is the right position and touched up the purple.

      Haven't post anything here for so long...
       
      I'm not really following any color scheme here, since I am not familiar with the lore of CAV at all (I'm more interested in the game).
       
      Also I wish I learnt a bit more about painting technique for glowing effect before painting the windows...

      Can't believe I missed this one until now.  I didn't have a printer during their previous projects, but I'm definitely in on this one.  Less than 48 hours to go.  Link added.

      Just noticed this KS was posted here. Only 53 hours left....

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wowbuildings/wowbuildings-further-space-adventures-3d-print-stl/description
       
      Here we are folks, WOWBuildings is expanding further into space, with the infrastructure now for several types of scenarios, this KS will be a mix of vehicles and Buildings so you will have an even bigger range of choices for your tabletops. all will come in STL format and cuts will be made where needed so boot up those 3D printers once again and jump on board for what hopefully will be a great sack full of goodies to enjoy.
      I am adding a couple of special adds that are for personal print use only as a little treat for you top end backers, all files will be initially 28mm scaled (but slightly over scaled to allow for GW sized figures) and optimized for 15-32mm scales so hopefully something for all.
      Again human based faction designs for this KS with other races in the pipeline if all goes well, so hello again and as usual keep the feedback coming and if you want anything specific added then just ask, if it can be done it will be so
      Stretch Goals as you see will start at £1000, and £500, but this time i am toying with adding some £250 jump points too here and there to add to the fun.
      I have tried to keep the pledge level prices as low as i can as well including the licence which is an absolute bargain price for this KS as a thank you for continued support and to help with those after Xmas blues.
      £10 Road Builder
      £30 Asteroid Miner
      £40 Planet Settler
