About this project
Wild West Exodus is a Sci-Fi Wild West Miniatures Game set in an alternate history wild west. Strange technologies corrupt the land and death lurks at every corner. RJ-1027, the infamous power source created by Dr. Burson Carpathian is the catalyst behind the constantly escalating arms race between the factions that make up Wild West Exodus.
Members of the Confederate Rebellion, Dark Nation, Golden Army & Watchers Factions
In 2012 Wild West Exodus entered the Miniature Wargaming industry with a successful Kickstarter of the initial game. We released 5 factions during that campaign. The Outlaws, The Lawmen, The Warrior Nation, The Enlightened and The Union all came to life because of our first successful kickstarter.
Soon after the first kickstarter was finished and products shipped we took on the challenge of releasing our first none kickstarter funded faction called the Holy Order Of Man.
We quickly realized that taking on a whole new faction requires a large investment of company funds. This slowed the new releases for the Holy Order of Man and showed us what type of time table an entire new faction would require.
Since that time many of our dedicated fans and former kickstarter backers have asked about the remaining 4 factions hinted at during the first kickstarter and in our 5 novels released since.
The honest truth is that it would take us 4 or 5 years to release the remaining four factions in our amazing world of Wild West Exodus.
This is the reason for our second kickstarter. We want to get these miniatures and factions to our customers and fans as quickly as possible. We feel that with a successful kickstarter campaign we can produce and ship all of the unlocked stretch goals in 12 months or less.
Please help us fund this venture and let's bring these four remaining factions to life. Amazing characters and deadly creatures await their unveiling.
Notice: All miniatures come unpainted and some assembly required.
Wild West Exodus is a miniatures game played by 2 to 4 players in control of the faction of their choice. In the world of WWX, every model has the potential to be a hero or a villain. The game mechanics and rule set feature exciting game play from the first dice roll. Each player will be allowed to field a posse of 6 to 60 models or more. The WWX rules have been designed to allow for scaling of the game to high or low model counts without causing rules issues.
One of the most exciting parts of the Wild West Exodus game mechanic is the reusable influence pool. The influence pool will give players the option to gamble away a set amount of tokens in return for a reroll of the dice. Be careful what you gamble on because once the tokens are committed they are lost for that turn. The D10 system gives the game life and options that round out easily and allow for quick decision making.
The Halo that each model possesses creates an area of assault around the miniature allowing for fast and deadly close combat. This helps move the game along quickly and gives each fight a more cinematic feel.
Wild West Exodus also benefits from an alternating 1-3 model activation system. This system lets both players choose the most strategic way of advancing their characters across the battle field. This means that you never have to wait more than a minute or two before taking control of your own posse for your next activation.

Each posse consists of a structured army list. All factions will have 1 Boss model, 0 to 4 Underboss models, 0 to 8 Sidekick models, and an endless amount of Hired Hands. Heavy and Light Support vehicles also make up an army list.
This really gives the gamer the option to field a force led by one mighty general commanding a horde of troops or the complete opposite.
Some gamers may choose to load up on skilled Sidekicks and Underbosses or go heavy on Hired Hands for a true horde army.
No matter what option you take, the world of Wild West Exodus will engulf you in fun and excitement from your very first game.
Outlaw Miniatures has already developed League and Tournament support. The Gunslinger Organized Play programs was designed so you and your friends can participate in Wild West Exodus at your Local Game Store right away!
In addition, we also have a volunteer program called the Deputies that allow gamers to take a leadership role in their community to run events and demo the game for new players.

At Outlaw Miniatures we produce some of the finest quality models in the business. Each and every sculpt is 3D designed and printed on some of the best equipment in the world. We use nothing but the highest quality resin available to ensure the best possible end product.
Many of our models are also made of High Impact Polystyrene (aka HIPS plastic). HIPS is known for being easy to work with and glues together using normal plastic glue.
Our staff has also been able to transform our concept art into almost an exact match as a final miniature. This means that any concept art images you see on this kickstarter will be very close to the model you will receive with your pledge rewards.
The Confederate Rebellion army has seen death and destruction ravage their states. Beaten by the Union during the Civil War, the leaders of the Confederate States of America have abolished slavery and joined forces with all men and women of the South. Their fight against a stronger and more advanced enemy has ignited a strong love of state and government. The CSA generals fight side by side with their men and want nothing but the complete destruction of the Union army. They use surprise assaults and guerilla warfare to even the odds against much more powerful foes. Their men and women are supplied by Dr. Carpathian Industries allowing access to deadly and corrupt weapons. Rumors of Voodoo magic and the undead fighting alongside Rebel troops have been whispered about for years.
Once a proud and spiritual people, the Warrior Nation has fought long and hard to keep technology out of their lands. However, the pull on its people has consumed many of their warriors, and the Dark Council has influenced even the strongest of their leaders. With the corruption spreading like a virus, the shape shifting Warrior Nation men and women become trapped in a half animal half human form left to walk the land as deformed creatures with no home. Once these proud warriors leave the guiding light of the great spirit, they are doomed to a blood thirsty life of war. Their beast and human form aide them in their battles against anyone who would dare oppose them. With weapons and technology at their side, these beasts may never be stopped.
The once famous explorer Ponce de Leon and his conquistadors were subjected to a mix of Watcher blood and tropical jungle water. What they call the fountain of youth has now kept them alive for hundreds of years endlessly searching for the source. Their influence over the Mexican people and robust army has pushed them to the door step of the country’s boarder. The men of the Golden Army know of only one thing. Fight until dead or until the enemy is destroyed. This horde faction sends endless supply of men to battle. They are led and protected by the destructive weapons of the conquistadors directing them from the rear. They will soon push across the border ready to destroy any army that stands in their way.
As the portals once again open on earth, mankind has no idea what is coming. The destructive power of the Watchers will completely strip the land of all living things. The Watchers use their Alpha leaders to guide and advance their many species of aliens. Each and every member of the Watchers knows his role in their society and follow orders without question. As their enemies attempt to stop the Watchers, the Betas drain the life energy from their bodies and transport it to their Alpha leader. This transforms the Alpha during the course of any battle into an enemy that knows every move you will make before you even make it. With inhuman weapons and a thirst for human blood, they plan to wipe mankind off the planet once and for all.
