Welcome to my Wild West Exodus terrain gallery! The large tables below were commissioned by Outlaw Miniatures and Warcradle Studios for their 35mm skirmish wargame. If you have any questions, or would like to contact me about commissioning your own terrain, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for following my hobby blog!
WILD WEST EXODUS HARBOR
This harbor is a 4' x 4' board, commissioned by Warcradle Studios. The buildin
gs are magnetized and removable so all the elements can be swapped out as necessary. You can see more detail shots and progress pictures in this post: Terrain Showcase, Wild West Exodus Harbor
WILD WEST EXODUS HEX SWAMP
This 3' x 3' board was commissioned by Warcradle Studios for use in gaming and photography. It features a Stonehenge-like alter rising atop a rocky perch, surrounded by marshland. You can see more detail shots and progress pictures in this post: Wild West Exodus Hex Swamp
WILD WEST EXODUS WATCHER HIVE
The Watchers are a race of aliens that operate from an inter-dimentional hive ship. This Watcher hive was built for Warcradle Studios and is a two-part board– a 2' x 4' mountain section inspired by the infamous Devil's Tower, and a 4' x 4' board with the hive interior. The interior is lit with LEDs and features a few infinity mirrors that create the illusion of a much deeper space. You can see all of the detail shots and some progress pictures in this post: WWX Watcher Hive, The Final Board
WILD WEST EXODUS MINE AND FOREST
This table measures 4' x 4' and the forest top lifts off to reveal the mine tunnels below. All of the trees are removable, and the set included a few mine cars that fit on the tracks in the mine. The table was commissioned by Outlaw Miniatures for use in gaming and photography.
WILD WEST EXODUS INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
This table was commissioned by Outlaw Miniatures and represents one of Dr. Carpathian's RJ-1027 processing facilities. The set consists of a flat 4' x 4' board, a few junk piles and four modular buildings that can connect via a series of gantry walkways. Scroll down to see the buildings in more detail.

IRONWORKS SMELTING AND CASTING
WATER TOWER AND CHURCH
These two buildings were independently commissioned. The church's bell tower and roof lift off to reveal a fully detailed interior with doors that open and close.
WILD WEST EXODUS DEMO TABLES
Each of these tables was constructed on a plastic GW Realm of Battle board section. They measure 2' x 2' and were commissioned for demo games in the Outlaw Miniatures booth at shows and conventions.
First of all your work is incredible and these boards are no exception.ReplyDelete
I particularly like the warrior nation settlement. The flocking on your boards is always top notch, I find flocking is something which is easy to do poorly but difficult to really well. Do you mind sharing what products you used and maybe your process for applying the flock such as seen on the warrior nation board?
Hi, I Just picked up some of these buildings. Pretty sure your stuff is how the image they are using to advertise the product. Any chance you could share how you painted the generic buildings of the town? I love the effect.ReplyDelete
One Word! AWESOME!!ReplyDelete
you inspire me!ReplyDelete
Best ever ... I bow my head .... Keep it on! ChrisReplyDelete
The new mine and shack table looks amazing! Which color paints do you use on the wooden buildings?ReplyDelete
Thanks! The wooden buildings are drybrushed with a mix of browns and greys going dark to light, and then a few boards are picked out with washes of brown ink. Then it's drybrushed with a lighter beige color to get the edges to pop.Delete
Something like this?Delete
Battlefield Brown (very heavy drybrush) -->
Bloodstone (?) (heavy drybrush) -->
Gun Corps Brown (medium drybrush) -->
Bastion Grey (light drybrush) -->
(missing a grey?) -->
Jack Bone (extreme highlights)
Or if that's giving away too many secrets, I understand. :)
That's pretty close, although I don't use Bloodstone on the wood other than rust drips. It's a very organic process, and I'll go back and forth between the browns and greys as I paint, so there's no definitive formula to it.Delete
What size track did you use for the train and the MineReplyDelete
The train is unique scratch-built using resin ties and styrene T-beams. The smaller mine track is HO-scale, I think. If you're building your own, my recommendation would be to pick a size that looks right and build mine cars on sets of matching train wheels.Delete
For the interior of the mine, what method did you use to texture the walls to look like rock??ReplyDelete
It's Insulation foam scraped with a wire brush and then spackled with wood filler putty to cover over any seams.Delete
Great looking stuff! I can see that the main part of the buildings are made with foam board, coffee stirrers and balsa wood, but what's the cladding on the outside of the buildings made out of, and the flooring inside?ReplyDelete
Thanks! If you're talking about the wood planks, that's all basswood panels. The metal framing is plastruct styrene strips of various sizes.ReplyDelete
Cheers, also where's the brickwork from, looks like pre painted sheet or is it expertly painted?Delete
Textured plasti-card, painted by me.Delete
Lots and lots of measuring then.Delete
More questions... on the general store are the shutters made or bought? haven't seen them sold anywhere. Are the wires actual wire or green stuff? And are the brackets holding the wires to the walls made of green stuff too? Sorry just trying to nick cool ideas.Delete
Most of those details are scratch-built or sculpted & resin cast.Delete
