Get Festive with these Warcradle Studios Miniatures for a Limited Time

Tis the season and Warcradle Studios has a selection of festive miniatures to celebrate for their games Mythos the Game and Wild West Exodus. You can get them directly from Wacradle or your friendly local game store. After that, they hibernate until next year.

Check out what you can get!

Morozko

Mythos the Game

Some know how to summon and bind him, others know how to entice him and sometimes he will simply arrive and join the fray on one side or another. Kind Morozko and Unkind Morozko can be added to any force in Mythos.

He begins play as Kind Morozko, bestowing gifts to his allies, but then changes to Unkind Morozko when he is flipped. In this form he curses and cripples his enemies, often resorting to tearing them apart with his claws and teeth.

Morozko

Madre Navidad

Wild West Exodus

As the festive season approaches Madre Navidad is sometimes glimpsed delivering toys to well-behaved children in the farmsteads around Rio Sonora.

The thunder heard late at night is said to be the Madre destroying Hex-Beasts and other abominations with her explosive puddings.

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. She’s an alternative sculpt of Madre Monica Perez in games of Wild West Exodus.

Krampus Rex

Wild West Exodus

Children all along the Frontier are used to hearing about Krampus from their parents – and their elder siblings too, of course!

Krampus Rex is a special edition miniature from Warcradle Studios, for this festive period, and can be used as an alternative sculpt of Carcosa Rex in games of Wild West Exodus.

Kyle The Red & White

Wild West Exodus

Kyle the Red & White (and ‘Max’ a particularly quirky K9 Attack Dog) is a resin miniature and comes complete with a large plinth base for you to display them on. For those that wish to use them in a game of Wild West Exodus, they could be taken as an alternate miniature for Kyle the Black and a K9 Attack Dog.

We’re including the additional bases needed for them to be fielded separately just in case players want to do just that!

The Old Dominion gets a Founder’s Exclusive and it’s Heavy Metal!

Para Bellum Wargames, the developer and publisher of the fantasy Regimental Miniature Wargame Conquest: The Last Argument of Kings and Skirmish system Conquest: First Blood, has revealed the next release in their limited edition “Founder’s Exclusive” series. Sporting four, highly detailed Resin Miniatures, set on a specially made scenic diorama base, “Heavy Metal” delivers on the promise of its name. With a thematic representation of a Strategos character, standing imposingly over the field of battle, surrounded by his Retinue of companions and clad in the wicked elegance of the Old Dominion aesthetics, the “Heavy Metal” diorama is as refined as it is imposing.

Heavy Metal is bringing to the field an Old Dominion Strategos, clad in the full might of the Dominion’s Regalia, with three Retinue characters bearing his arms and banner. As ever in the dioramas of Conquest, the individual raisin characters are set on their own base, ready to be moved and fielded when the time for battle comes, while perfectly resting in their diorama base when one wants to simply show off their forces. Be it for hobby or play, Heavy Metal promises to draw the eyes of enthusiasts and gamers alike!

The Founder’s Exclusive models are designed by the creative direction of the founder, Stavros, and fill a space in the Conquest world of unique pieces that can be used in the game, while also being fantastical models for any fan of miniatures. Each one is a limited, numbered edition.

Releasing in January of 2023 and sequentially numbered to seven hundred and fifty (750), seven hundred (700) of the pieces will be available for sale. The other fifty (50) will be offered as prize support in 2023, making them a spectacular prize in every collection or on any table –  124.99 USD/EU!
