A Great Spirit rises

Today we introduce you to Chief Raven Spirit, a new Boss for the Warrior Nation, and the special GenCon 2015 miniature!

For those who are already familiar with the Free People, Warrior Priests have the ability to summon apparitions, which then unleash death upon their unsuspecting enemies.

This new boss is master of summoning, and not only of this massive apparition.  He can also bring more of the smaller spirits as well.

Here are some renders of the special release for GenCon.

I will be painting this at the booth, just as I painted the Holy Order Pillar of Light in 2014.

This will be so much fun to paint, with lighting effects everywhere!  It makes me very happy that I will be camped out in the Wild West Exodus booth with my brushes and paints!

This might be the most fearsome looking of all the Wild West Exodus creatures to date.

But that's not all!

For the first time anywhere, I will be showing my whole collection of Wild West Exodus figures.  My own Warrior Nation posse grows by the day!

Old Stompy will be there of course.  He was the Gold Crystal Brush large creature.

Geronimo and Walks Looking will be there, along with various Legends of the Weird West, such as Legendary Sitting Bull.

Not to be outdone, the Lawmen of Wappelville will come into town, making sure that things don't get out of hand in Indy.  Legendary Wyatt will lead them.:-)

  The other factions will be represented as well, as I bring what Union, Outlaw and Holy Order figures that have been painted, or are under way.

It should be a lot of fun... lots of work, but a great chance to talk painting, and talk gaming.  Yes, it's hard to believe that this time last year, I was reading the WWX rule book for the first time.

Little did I know that it would lead to amazing battles like this:

These new Mercenary K-9's from Wild West Exodus are among the meanest sidekicks around for their point cost.

This gatling gun version cranks out a large volume of shots, especially with that extra action point.

However, these have proven to be almost more valuable as close combat beasts, tying down critical enemies who have yet to activate.

How would you like to try and take a shot with one of these ripping your arm off?
