My Favorite Skirmish Game has Cowboys, Aliens, and Zombies: Wild West Exodus Review

If you're -really- into the miniature wargaming scene as a whole, you've probably seen some of the interesting models for Wild West Exodus (WWX); it's larger scale seemed intriguing to you and it's fantastic blend of old Wild West and steampunk sci-fi aesthetics probably caught your eye. Like me, the models weren't ever enough to convince you to try the game out, no matter how interesting they seemed. Honestly, I can't ever place my finger on what kept me from trying the game out (I think I always assumed it was larger scale than it is and being too pulpy for my taste), but I regret the fact that I never tried it out sooner. It has by far become one of my favorite skirmish experiences ever and I really wish I had gave Wild West Exodus the attention it deserved all those years ago.

As I'm sure you can tell by now though, the game isn't perfect and we'll dive deep into exactly what my problems are with the game, but in all honesty, if you don't mind the aesthetics and you're craving a new skirmish game to play, this one will be hard to beat.
