The Cerulean Clade Takes Over Wild West Exodus

Aliens invade the wild west with this new set for Wild West Exodus!

I absolutely love looking at a variety of games. When Warcradle Studios offered me a chance to review some really cool alien miniatures, I instantly said yes. They sent me their Cerulean Clade Posse Set. For those wondering, these miniatures are from the game Wild West Exodus, but I think the miniatures would fit in with other games too.

The Cerulean Clade Posse

Check out my painted Cerulean Clade Miniatures. They look pretty good. Image from Must Contain Minis.

These shape-shifting aliens infiltrate into human society and watch from there. When they want to attack, they use the element of surprise. The little guys, called Infiltrators basically start the game imbedded into enemy gangs. On the turn they want to come into battle they force an enemy gang to make “Mind” checks any enemy that fails, is replaced by one of the Infiltrators. After that, these guys will most likely tie up the chosen group into melee combat. The two partial human miniatures and the tall one in the middle start the game in Human form. While in human form, they cannot be attacked (unless they attack first or the enemy gets too close to them).

The monstrosity on the far right is a powerful model, but it has been tainted with the Hex and can no longer maintain a stable human form.

A Quick Review

These miniatures were very easy to build. If you run into issues, Warcradle houses online instructions too. That link will also take you to free unit cards (the abilities of which were all outlined in the video above.

Material-wise, you are working with resin with these miniatures. The resin is clear and crisp and easy to work with.

I put mine together and the only thing that I could mention is that the legs on the Cerulean Prim that I received are slightly further apart than what the instructions seem to indicate. In terms of issues to have, this is a small one. I am very happy with these miniatures.

This miniature is the only one that had any complications during the assembly. The legs are spread further apart than they are in the instructions. Otherwise, they are all really good models. Even this observation is not an issue. Image from Must Contain Minis.

These miniatures painted up really well too. While I had a few issues that I will discuss further below, they are of no fault of the miniatures. Before moving on to discussing painting them, let’s take a look at a scale comparison image.

Painting the Miniatures

Painting the miniatures went extremely well, until I got to the varnishing stage. That was an error on my part. I improperly used some primer and then sprayed some varnish on these miniatures in the same box without cleaning it out first.

I started by dry brushing the aliens with a grey over a black primer. Image from Must Contain Minis.

I then painted in all the other parts of the miniature. Image from Must Contain Minis.

And finished by coating all of the miniatures in blue shade. Image from Must Contain Minis.

The miniatures looked extremely good at this point. I then applied the varnish and terrain elements. It is the varnishing step where I, unfortunately, suffered some issues.

And here are the finished Aliens. Image from Must Contain Minis.
