Wild West Exodus – Two Player Starter Set – Part Three – Lawmen

Posted on May 4th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

We covered the necessary templates, tools and other related bits and pieces from the starter set in this introductory article HERE and had a detailed look at the Outlaw faction HERE.
Now we’ll look at the models from the starter set that make up the Lawmen faction.
Lawmen
The law was an elusive animal in the Old West, and today’s sheriff could easily prove to be tomorrow’s highwayman at the least provocation or opportunity. Many of the most famous, or infamous, lawmen to establish themselves throughout the western territories were in fact merely the most successful outlaws, history, as is so often the case, having been written by the victors. But after the brutal culmination of the Civil War in the east, the western territories began to experience an age of such violence and upheaval that there was almost no hope for ordinary men and women to survive, let alone prosper. Those who rose up to defend them were the Lawmen.
The Lawmen part of the starter set consists of one Boss (Wyatt Earp), one Underboss (Doc Holliday), Ten Deputy Hired Hands (Five are Long Range, Five are Close Combat). One Heavy Weapon Lawmen (a Light Support Shotgun) and a Lawmen Interceptor (Light Support).
The majority of the humanoid models consist of six or seven parts and have decent attachment points and I encountered no alignment issues where weapon arms have hands attached which is a common issue amongst many models…but not these fortunately. Several of the Lawmen have separate shoulder pads that are quite small so be careful not to lose those bits in the carpet. There are no duplicate models on the sprues so each model is individual in appearance. The Interceptor may have benefited from some instructions but now I’ve done multi-angle pictures of it for you there’s no need, lol.
Wyatt Earp – Boss
The Earp brothers are feared by outlaws across the west and Wyatt is the most feared of them all. Armed with his defensive shield, shotgun, thermite grenades and Peacemaker he is resourceful enough to herald the dawn of any gunslingers bad day.

Doc Holliday – Underboss

Deputies – Hired Hands
Deputy (Long Range)

Deputy (Close Combat)

Heavy Weapon Deputy – Light Support

Interceptor – Light Support

 Well that’s it for the starter set…but I”m sure as my collection expands there will be many more such articles appearing…
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Some upcoming releases from Wild West Exodus…

Hi
There are two new resin miniatures on their way for release on the 27th of May,Legendary Nura & Broad Arrow Jack.
LEGENDARY NURA
The second-in-command of the entire Holy Order in the Sunset Lands, Nura was raised to the rank of Sircan only recently after years in the field as an Initiated and many subsequent years service within the archives. Nura’s selection for high office was something of a disappointment to her, as she yearned for the chance to receive Baptism and the Rite of Elevation; nonetheless, her charismatic pleas for action swayed the High Council in its choice, and Nura serves as Abner’s fractious deputy in ruling and decreeing the Order’s actions.

Unlike her elder, Nura is a believer in prophecy and fate. She has read the signs of the times and believes the last battle is approaching that will finally decide the fate of the world. As such, Nura leads the extremist faction that seeks to provoke the final confrontation with all out war… revealing the Holy Order’s full might to crush their foes in the Sunset Lands and raise the banner of open defiance against the Dark Council. Thus far such dreams have been forestalled by the patient council of Sircan Abner, but it is only a matter of time before they are realised. Nura’s commitment to the Holy Order is absolute, and her greatest fear is that her faith in its mission should be found wanting in this most desperate hour.

PRE-ORDER LEGENDARY NURA – £18.99
BROAD ARROW JACK
The frontier is a place where legends are born but not necessarily earned. Few men have born as many legends Broad Arrow Jack. That doesn’t surprise Jack though, he told most of them himself.

Jack is a grifter, always working deals in an effort to make his big score and retire somewhere warm.  He’s good at what he does too due to his predilection for sidestepping the law. As he has been heard to remark “The law is what other people do.”. As yet he hasn’t gotten round to retiring. More often than not he will spend his winnings on a good time with a bad woman (or even occasionally a bad time with a good woman) which leaves him penniless and in need of a new mark.

Woman really are Jack’s weakness. He’s had many wives and still does as he doesn’t believe in divorce. Jack has a wife in every state he has laid low in for any amount of time, moving on when the money and opportunities have run out. It’s not hard to see why; Jack is everyone’s pal who is generous with his cash when his troubles are far on the horizon.

If trouble does comes calling or if someone foolishly stands in the way of Jack’s prize then a different man emerges. This Jack is cold blooded killer, quick with his knife and quicker with his pistol, uncaring of the widows left in his wake. This is the Jack who surely earned the scars littered across his body but what of the large arrow branded into the flesh on his back? Occasionally Jack alludes to his past, but each audience receives a different tale. Whatever the truth, he refuses to be shackled and will fight like a man possessed if a deputy comes his way, a panicked desperation in his otherwise usually charismatic eyes.

Jack is happiest on the move. If he ever makes that big score perhaps he’ll settle down but that would make it easier for him to be found. The Law wants Jack. The Union wants Jack. Jack’s wives want Jack. It is the latter that may have the best chance of catching up to him first as counted amongst their number are many resourceful and dangerous women. Women like the notorious bank robbing Outlaw Laura Anderssen or the magnificent Crown Privateer Rani Nimue. Lord help anyone caught nearby should any Jack and any two of his wives ever meet!

PRE-ORDER BROAD ARROW JACK – £10.99
