Frequently Asked Questions
Trading your rewards is very easy with Wild West Exodus. The first thing to remember is that all trading will happen during the survey that is emailed out at the end of the campaign. Kickstarter does not allow for modifications to the pledge levels once they are posted. As the project creators we can update graphics with the latest unlocked rewards but we can not change the text listed under the pledge level wording on the right side of the screen. This is to prevent project creators from advertising a reward as being something and then lowering the rewards in the level at the end of the campaign. It is basically a safety system to guarantee that the backers get what they pledge for.
In our kickstarter our graphic is always correct so if the pledge level graphic says you are getting 4 of something but the text on the right says 3, please know you will get 4. The graphic is always right.
As for trades the policy is simple. We will allow like model trades for like model trades. We will also allow like model rewards such as books to be traded for like model printed media. Below you will find a list of examples on what can be traded and for what.
Extra box sets of Hired Hands can be traded for box sets of Hired Hands Wave 1 or Wave 2.
Starter boxes are not considered simply hired hands because they will be packaged differently. All starters come with Wave 1 Hired Hands and those cannot be traded for Wave 2. This would break the packaging and cause major slowing in the shipping of the models.
Whole starters sets can be traded for whole starter sets but all starters come with Wave 1 Hired Hands
Heavy Weapon Hired Hands can be traded for other Heavy Weapon Hired Hands. These are resin models and will be produced in the US. A starter that features a heavy weapon hired hand can be swapped just for the wave 2 version of that hired hand in the same faction.
Light Support Choices Wave 1 can be traded for Light Support Choices Wave 1
Light Support Choices Wave 2 can be traded for Light Support Choices Wave 2
If you would like to trade Light Support Choices Wave 1 for Wave 2 it would require you to trade in 3 of the Wave 1 models for 1 of the Wave 2 models.
Heavy Support Choices can be traded for Heavy Support Choices
Micro Art Terrain Sets and bases can be traded for Micro Art Terrain Sets, or for Bags, or for Models of equal value.
Rule Books can be traded for Art Books, Mini Rule Books, or printed art prints, aka posters.
The Rotten Level Pledge can be traded for $40 worth of add-on credit to be spent on add-ons. This credit cannot be used against your pledge total to give you an additional discount. This is not allowed by Kickstarter. You also cannot pledge for Rotten and get the trade in value. The Trade In Value of $40 is only allowed if you have Rotten as part of one of your pledge levels. This credit must be spent on Model Add-Ons Only. The full amount must be traded in for the credit and cannot be broken up into smaller credits.
Boss Models can be traded for Boss Models (This means wave 1 bosses for weave 2 bosses)
Underboss Models can be traded for Underboss Models (This means wave 1 underbosses for wave 2 underbosses)
Sidekick Models can be traded fro Sidekick Models (This means wave 1 sidekicks can be traded for wave 2 sidekicks)
(Mercs are now considered sidekicks so they fall under the sidekick trading rules.)
Ladies Of The West can be traded for Dark Council Models or Spirit Totems or Civilians. The same can be reversed.
If the models being traded require an additional cost to be added the pledge must be increased to cover this. Example - Backer A wants to trade in the Starter Box Gen Grant standard pose model for Abe Lincoln. Backer A can do this at no extra charge and would request this during the survey at the end of the kickstarter.
The WWX terrain also known as Barricades set 1 and Barricades set 2 can be swapped for only Barricades sets. These are not made by Micro Art Studios so they cannot be swapped for buildings or or bases.
Example - Backer B wants to trade out Alt Sculpt Jesse James Boss for Eiffel and Spider Construct. Backer B would need to add an additional $11 to cover the difference in price between the Alt Sculpt Jesse James and the Eiffel model. This would also mean that backer B would not get the Alt Sculpt of Jesse James because he used that to trade towards Eiffel.Last updated:
No, the Lawmen Mini Starter can not be swapped out with any other starter box. The Lawmen Mini Starter is a special add-on item only.
Normal MSRP is $105 - KSRP is $60Last updated:
Does the comic subscription also come with the wicked-pledge? And if not, is it optional through this kickstarter?
Yes but as soon as we reach $50,000 stretch goal all of the contents in Evil become free to anyone pledging Wicked or higher. This will include the comic subscription.Last updated:
All Customers that are overseas will be receiving their items from our UK warehouse and shipping partner. This means that anyone looking to pledge will not have to worry about international customs and other taxes seen from US packages. Some delays may occur but should be minimal as we have set out a good window for arrival dates on all of your items.Last updated:
The international shipping is something that we have to include even with a distribution center in the UK.
The problem is not getting it from our warehouse in the UK to all of our EU and UK customers. The problem is getting it into the UK.
The product will be manufactured in two locations. Parts will come from the US and parts will come from China. This means that a container will need to be shipped overseas to get the pledges distributed.
A container from the states or China costs from $5000 to $7000 depending on the time of year. There is also customs and VAT that must be paid on these shipments.
Those charges when divided out to all the pledges actually is much, much higher than the fees we have listed as shipping.
We are making this a bit better on the customers by simply adding more free stuff to the starter boxes. As more stretch goals are passed more free items will be added. This should outweigh the charges you are seeing as international shipping.
This is not the greatest answer but it is the best we could really do with the costs at hand.Last updated:
When pledging for a starter or group of starters can I choose different ones, or do they all have to be the same?
Yes, you can choose any faction you want when the kickstarter ends. We will send out a survey that will ask what starters you would like. You can select different starters or create a mega starter by going with the same one for each choice. We hope that answers you question.Last updated:
Yes, you can swap out your rule book for an art book or a mini rule book.Last updated:
Our hired hands are made out of plastic. The technical name of our plastic is High Impact Polystyrene or HIP. This type of plastic is the same style and quality as what you have seen from GW, Wyrd Miniatures, and Dream-Forge. This is not resin plastic.
The rest of our models will be cast in high detail Resin. This is the same quality of resin that you have seen with forgeworld, Dark Age, and others. This is not the same as finecast or similar soft resins.
The goal for us is to take all of our models to plastic if we reach specific goals.Last updated:
The Charlie rules are our play testing rules that we created to get the basic game off the ground. This version of the rules are a work in progress and are now being revised and play tested by Alessio Cavatore.
A Beta version of the rules will be sent out a few days after Kickstarter to all backers. These will be closer to a final rule set with just one more revision before publication. All backers will have a 3 week window that they can email suggestions and ideas to the beta rules that will be considered before the final version is sent to the publishing house.Last updated:
The Union Heavy Rail train is set to ship in October 2013. We will do everything in our power to have the Union Heavy Rail finished in September to package everything together for backers getting that as a reward. If for some reason the train is not ready it will ship as stated in October in its own box and shipment.
Updates of progress on The Union Heavy Rail and all other models will be made on a monthly basis to all backers via email until tracking numbers are issued.Last updated:
The mystery backer model is actually a model being paid for by one of our backers. This model will be sent out to each backer that has selected Fiendish and above.
This model will be a Sidekick Merc model named Marcus Killingsworth and will work for any faction. However he will give Lawmen special bonuses that will not be allowed with other factions Marcus might work for.
This model can not be traded or swapped for any other model.Last updated:
