    Model availability

    I have ordered 3 torpedo Cruisers of the Terran Alliance, so I'll report if the resin still in that kind of quality.

    Sorylian re-stat

    @Brimat as far as boarding, I could definitely get behind 2nd assualt as an upgrade, it fits the faction theme, and makes boarding a better option for them But 20ad can hurt a lot more then tier 2s Especially if crew has been lost, or they lay thermal controls, that 20 AD then averadges about 20successes that's scary no matter who you are... All the more reason to go second assault though, as the tac can only be used once, unless they pay some Battlelog the question then becomes though, would that be too much?

    Sorylian re-stat

    @Ryjak It was actually your old posts that led to make this movement changes andnyiur right,bit may turn out to be too much, but I played an 800pt game this past weekend, I used relthoza, and he used sorylian, we were Rusty, but I still pulled ahead +12 to -3 one game does not mean much in testing, I will likely be using sorylian on the next run (not to brag, I just have a really good track record), and use battle fleets (As all the other changes really just effect tier 1, they were not represented well in this last game at the patrol fleet level) but if anyone else wants to give it a shot, I would live to hear your experiences

    WWX Campaign Brainstorming

    We are currently playing a newbie campaign where you'll earn 1 XP for a loss, 2 XP for a tie game and 3 XP for a win. While expanding our posses in 250pts steps every month you'll able to spend your XP for stuff like additional Booby Traps, Civilians or an additional hands unit (up to 150points).

    Sorylian re-stat

    I have always advocated for straight swapping the Movement Values for Sorylians and Aquans. Aquans don’t need to be fast at all; they have a high DR and are very maneuverable, plus 360 firing. Sorylians aren’t particularly tough, really, and have no forward firepower... they need speed to close the distance. The +1/-1 generally does this. Since FSA is primarily movement and positioning, even a small change like this can have a large impact on gameplay. I wouldn’t make any other stat adjustments until this is heavily tested. Also, in theory, Sorylians/Aquans should be very balanced when playing against each other... I would start the testing with this specific match-up, then expand from there.

    Sorylian re-stat

    As Boarding is a one-shot-weapon, there is no reason not to make it a good and effective tool. In the example above, you get the 20AP to board only one ship. with the luck of the dice you will board a T2, as a standard T1 should give at least you 10 defence dice in return (when not shot to pieces before the assault) . My best suggestion would be to give them Second Assault.

    So .. a year later.. nothing happend mh? Did anyone mention anything about official campaign rules?

    Sorylian re-stat

    I looked at boarding, but I ran into a couple balance issues, since they have access to a fax that gives them +1 to hit, I can't give them speacial forces, other wise they would hit on 2,3,4,5, and 6 and when you look at those heavy cruisers, a squad of 4 could drop a 20 AP boarding assualt, it's a bit excessive Giving them cyber would be difficult to balance, which leaves biohazard as perhaps the best option, but directorate and relthoza can already get biohazard, if sorylians get it too, terrans are going to rage but im open to suggestions

    I really, really like the sound of that. Good way to differentiate fleets and weapon systems.

    Thank the mighty Allshard that this community exists and may answer such questions

    Yeah, an upgrade in the boarding category is something that i would wish for.

    Hands models, weapons and Warcradle Classics

    They are just big guns ;p I might not care enough about weapons tbh. It's one thing if the special issue weapon is a flamethrower or so, but with these two I don't really feel like to bother to replace one gun with another. The looks are a really nice bonus, but I care more about playing the game. I wouldn't like someone replacing a face with a wrong miniature if he doesn't have the right one and for myself it bothers me to have a model that looks completely differnt (classic Flowing River, wrong colors) compared to the card. For Hands this means just that I want them to wear the right armor, I honestly don't really mind the equipped weapon, it's just a cool bonus. Regarding big weapons, I mostly meant cases were you have the armory only. Like without this Trooper, I would have no idea what a Heavy Slugger looks like.

    Is Warcradle using the same kind of resin for these classic ships?

    My 3 colour dice approach made Red fdice actually uncommon. Blue is the most common by far, but certain fleets get certain dice to be red or black as standard. For example, my redo of hte Sorylian fleet, their scatter weapns roll black dice. But a cruiser throws 12 of them out of each broadside To better representnthe fact that they throw a lot of flak out for weapons, they get Red PD, and obviously they got Red AP. Their torpedoes used to lose 2 dice at RB1. Now I just shift them from Blue to Black dice. It's made a huge difference in how fleets work. Like Terrans are some of the only Red shields, and other fleets taht have less advanced shields might carry Blue ones, or those that are still getting it all figured out might just carry a whole pile of Black shields. As to the idea of proprietary dice...ugh. Hard pass for me thanks. I've got reams of dice as is, and have little interest in having ot use a specific set for a specific thing and nowhere else.

    Re-stat/houserule candidates

    I think the three dice colours is a pretty elegant solution, simpler in the long run than WC's proprietary dice that just seems so confusing to me for DWars so far, in that you don't have the same aim (ie high good) and lose the exploding fun on the defensive. Hopefully it will grow on me, but that flexibility of to hit values, and other ways of limiting defensive dice or weapon effectiveness without needing to buy new dice or having to work out in my head what it means is useful now I am getting old.

    My group took a ground up approach to ship designs, and we fully embraced the 3 colour dice mechanics, adn it's made thigns play very differently, and been a blast.

    I don't know about you but those two weapons don't exactly look the same to me. And for the Confederate Trooper: the weapon is called a Heavy Slugger.

    The Third Man Posse

    That is currently possible, yes, although maybe not intended. "Sic'Em!: This units posse may include a unit of K9 Automata [...]" You see, the automata are part of the posse and would therefore gain the posse bonus too. Referring to the two posse slots, RAW i'd say yes that is currently viable (much like the <AGENT> unit within the Secret Service posse).

    Hands models, weapons and Warcradle Classics

    Thanks for your response. How do you now what weapon to give them, though? I have seen the Gunmen models with Juiced Shotgun and Juiced Sniper Rifle and kinda think you barely see a difference, it's just another big Gun. And with the bigger weapons (like on the heavy Confederate trooper) I wouldn't even be able to tell what that is supposed to be. Or how to add it to a normal model.

    Hands models, weapons and Warcradle Classics

    Paint the models the way you like, that's it. I'd be okay with it as long as someone doesn't have a specific model with a special weapon yet. But i do prefer WYSIWYG and would encourage my opponent/fellow players to at least convert a model for that purpose. I'd recommend putting her on a new suitable base (according the her statcard) and maybe put some rocky bitz or similar stuff onto the base to fill the empty space.

    I like that damaged ship mechanic that sounds interesting, it does make weapon systems somewhat obsolete, but maybe if it protected the engines too, hmm.... so with that repair mechanic, did only 1 dice need to succeed? Or was it like command checks where 2 successes were required? and I assume that means no repairs when your out of crew? That's an interesting one if I'm understanding it, it makes corrosive a bit weak, but hazard markers start to look a little scarier, stack enough stuff on and you can't repair it....hmm, I may have to fiddle with that too thanks @Wolfgang JannesenJannesen

    Hands models, weapons and Warcradle Classics

    I aim to use the models for both factions and will go with something inbetween colorwise. I was told that you are free to colorate miniatures the way you want anyway? I don't care too much about the replaced weapon. Sure, I prefer the model to be accurate, but since many models don't really have the shown weapons, it's kinda unimportant to me to be completely accurate. Gunmen get the big gun and the others Pistols, but I think I will simply add a Skull or so on the Base to identify the upgraded model. That said, my tabletop group is chill in that regard, I wonder if others have a problem with that attitude? Currently Bandits have Outriders (two different models) which are secondary Faction Hex. Union has Iron Horse Cavalry, Enlightened Constructed Uhlans, Dark Nation Reaver Berserker. Then there are Bandit/Ranger Interceptors, Bandit/Deputised Dustcutter and Bandit/Ranger Blackjack. These have only one model for both Factions in the store currently. For the Interceptor the Unit Cards looks both similiar and are driving the same Iron Horse. I hoped to use Flowing River's old Model, she is the only one interesting me in the Wayward Eight Posse, but that's a big resculpt, not even the same Base size.
