  2. Hello here Captain Fumichon, I have just acquired "in pursuit of the prometheus". I haven't played yet and there are no players around me. I live in Manche near Saint Lô. As soon as the fleets are painted I will propose the game to my club. (which is more historically oriented) As you will have understood, I am French, and of course I intend to play Latin alliance. I will read the rules, hoping not to put in violation.

  4. July releases are now available to pre-order! Make sure to check out the Warcradle Studios Blog for more information.
  5. Strap in for takeoff this month; you won’t want to miss the latest pre-orders coming to Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics! Following the launch of the Oriflamme for Dystopian Wars, the Latin Alliance embark on an aerial assault with the release of the Magenta Battlefleet Set. Meanwhile, the Sultanate are deploying a more grounded reinforcement plan this month with the Sultanate Support Squadrons to back up any Sultanate navy. Grizzled by the Ore War and impelled by hatred, the Quantrill’s Raider Posse rides into Wild West Exodus to enact violence against the Union first and take names afterwards. In the depths of the Bayou sits the Black Lake Manor, a once luxurious estate that has laid dormant for many years now. Bring life, or death, back to the manor and bring your battles to the bayou with the Black Lake Bayou Set from Warcradle Scenics. Due to be released at the end of July. Dystopian Wars A whole new dimension of combat opens up this month as the Magenta hovers high above its opponents to cause trouble for those below. The Sultanate, seeing the need to rally their forces, calls for more reinforcements this month with the Sultanate Support Squadrons. Magenta Battlefleet Set Named after the Alliance victory against the Imperium in 1859, the Magenta class is the pride of Napoleon’s levant fleet. These powerful battlecruisers are capable of hovering a hundred metres or more above the sea bringing their powerful heat lances or other weapons to bear. The Saint-Michel Levant Assault Carrier is often the centrepiece of a Levant focussed battlefleet. Flight crews of the fighter craft that launch from Saint-Michel are often known as ‘Anges de la Mort’ as a matter of pride. The agility of the skimming Levant Carrier allows it to surge to great heights then descend upon the enemy as scores of ‘angels’ unleash the wrath of President Louis-Napoleon. This box contains: 1x Battlecruiser (can be built as either a Magenta or a Saint-Michel Class ship) 2x Levant Cruiser (can be built as either a Chasseur, Furieux or Voliere Class ship) 2x Epaulard Artillery Submarine 2x SRS Token Sultanate Support Squadrons The flight crew of Constantinople Carriers are rightly proud of their assignment. It is said that "the blood of a wingman is thicker than the water of the womb" and that is certainly the case for these pilots. These aerial combatants are like a close-knit family as they know they can only rely on each other once the fighting starts and they don’t let outsiders forget it. This box contains: 2x Support Cruisers (can be built as either a Constantinople, Mihrimah, Konya, Aydin or Morea Class ship) 4x Escort Skiff 2x SRS Token Wild West Exodus Rage boils over in the Wild West this month as the Quantrill’s Raider Posse are back to fight for the Outlaws in the name of the Confederacy, but this time it’s personal. Quantrill’s Raiders Posse To think that William Quantrill was once a teacher is almost impossible to believe. The man driven by hatred and violence is now spoken about only in hushed tones, often by the weeping widows he leaves in his wake. To him, the Ore War never ceased and he will only be at peace when the yankee blue-bellies are purged from this land in flame and death. At least that’s what he tells people who are brave enough to ask. There is a darker truth behind his eyes. Even before he was critically wounded in a Union ambush, he was known for the massacre of men and boys. He simply enjoys causing pain and terror to any who stand in his way. The story goes that it was only purest hate that willed him to survive the almost fatal wound he received at Wakefield Farm, though Enlightened medicine surely played its part. Now he has vowed to take revenge on every last member of the Union that he can. Soldiers or civilians, loyalists or former Confederates, Quantrill will have his pound of flesh and then some. This box contains: 1x William Quantrill 1x Georgia Maddox 1x Richard Maddox Warcradle Scenics Bring a bayou themed backdrop to your wargaming battles and host shootouts through rundown corridors and half-sunken boats with the Warcradle Scenics Black Lake Bayou Set. Black Lake Bayou Set Built many years ago when the French had colonised the local area, the Manor at Black Lake was once a place of opulence where the well-to-do would dine and socialise. Since the Ore War, it has certainly lost its shine. While still an imposing building, it is now for a very different reason. Rumours of it being haunted and the now overgrown local flora make it creepy rather than captivating. The ‘ownership’ of the building has changed hands many times over the past years with everyone staking a tenuous claim from local moonshiners to Confederate remnants of the Ore War to Mme. Marie Leveau and her entourage. This last entry being the source of many of the macabre tales that seem to centre around this former location of luxury. This set contains: 1x Black Lake Manor 1x Black Lake Boat House 1x Black Lake Summer House 1x Black Lake Paddle Steamer This month is packed full of so many exciting new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. What are you looking forward to the most? Make sure you don’t miss out when these go live for pre-order on the 24th of June 2022 from your FLGS or Wayland Games Online.

  6. June releases are now available to pre-order! Check out the Warcradle Studios Blog for more information.
  7. Bonjour à tous les Capitaines !! Je suis très heureux de pouvoir prendre un peu de temps pour vous parler du développement de notre Communauté française ^^ D'une part, parce qu'une belle page Facebook a été créée pour se retrouver : https://www.facebook.com/groups/110745242893402 C'est une page Fb qui regroupe une ptite partie de la communauté fr centrée essentiellement sur Paris, où on travaille à faire des orbats traduites, des unboxing et autre discussion sur les règles :) Et d'autre part, parce que nous avons enfin fabriqué un Discord un peu rôle-play : https://discord.gg/qjRjd32D Dessus, tout en s'immergeant dans notre univers, on y centralise toutes les ressources (orbat, règles, tuto, vidéo, post, règle maison, campagne...), et on peux y retrouver des joueurs pour des parties très facilement ^^ On y orga des rencontre et des évènements de temps en temps ! N'hésitez pas à nous y rejoindre pour plus de rigolade et de rasades de rhum Nous sommes tous impatient de vous y voir. N'hésitez pas à venir :)
  8. With the introduction of an eighth faction for Dystopian Wars last month, the big releases don’t stop as June sees new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. The Sultanate call for further firepower this month, following the introduction of the Anatolia, with the launch of the Suleiman Battlefleet Set. The newest faction to Dystopian Wars, the Latin Alliance, also request backup to escort the Oriflamme and are relieved to find the Alliance Frontline Squadrons en route. Nothing lasts forever in the harshness of the Wild West but family comes close. Through thick, thin and robotic replacement, the Earps have persevered with hardy resolve and are ready to show just how much family matters with the Vengeance of the Earps Posse for Wild West Exodus. Take your battles to the thriving village of Estun, a range of high quality scenics fit for any fantasy wargame. Available as a Terrain Set, the Estun Village Set, and the Estun Long Hall; Estun serves as a perfect setting for your tabletop. Due to be released at the end of June 2022. Dystopian Wars A new flagship for the Sultanate emerges this month as the Suleiman Battlefleet Set offers a dual-deck solution to strengthen your aerial presence. The fresh face of the French continues to grow as the Alliance Frontline Squadrons adds the perfect one-two punch to the recently released Oriflamme Battlefleet Set. Suleiman Battlefleet Set The twin decks of the Suleiman Fleet Carrier are replete with squadrons of Sabiha strike aircraft. An impressive vessel, the Sultanate values supremacy of the skies that the Suleiman class brings. While her twin hulls make her slower to turn than other vessels of her size, her ability as the flagship in a carrier assault group shows the huge advances the Ottomans are making thanks to heavy investment by the Sublime Porte. This box contains: 1x Suleiman Fleet Carrier 3x Cruiser (can be built as either a Iskandar, Izmir, Pasha or Sadrazam Class ship. Both cruisers can also be combined to build a Hurrem Grand Cruiser or a Mehmed Grand Monitor) 6x Temir Frigate 3x Cruiser (can be built as either a Constantinople, Mihrimah, Konya, Aydin or Morea Class ship) 6x Ferik escort skiff 3x SRS Tokens Alliance Frontline Squadrons The Chevalier cruisers and Charlemagne heavy cruisers are the mainstay of Alliance cruisers and are able to launch screens of torpedoes in a wide range of fire arcs, as well as lay down heat lances or rocket batteries, when necessary. Loire light cruisers are at the forefront of Alliance Battlefleets and as such often the first to engage with the enemy. They provide screening and reconnaissance for the rest of the battlefleet and any commodore worth his salt will know how to make best use of any Loire’s under their command. This box contains: 2x Cruiser (can be built as either a Loire, Picardy, Chevalier or Charlemagne class ship) 4x Ecuyere Frigate Wild West Exodus Sometimes you have to take the law into your own mechanical hand, and for the Earps the law is a family affair… Vengeance of the Earps Posse Those who think that Martha Earp has a softer nature than her brothers are sorely mistaken. After an illness in her childhood cost her an arm, she gained an unshakable resolve and vowed that she would survive anything life could throw at her, proving that fact to anyone who challenged it. Martha is joined by her brother, Warren Earp, a man who is not just the most ornery of his clan, but one of the most bad-tempered lawmen riding across the west. Fighting in the Ore War, something inside Warren snapped and no amount of cosseting could fix it. Now he rides with his sister, too angry to settle anywhere, keeping the peace by any means necessary. As a Justice of the Peace, the venerable patriarch of the family, Nicholas Earp was given a UR-24 automata to help with his duties. On his passing in 1863, the machine was damaged and fell into disuse. As the various siblings drifted away from the family home to fight in the Ore War, the automata was repurposed to help around the place. The UR-24 was especially useful to Martha, who had yet to fully embrace the mechanical prosthesis her father had acquired for her. This box contains: 1x Martha Earp mounted on Iron Horse 1x Warren Earp mounted on Iron Horse 1x James Earp mounted on Iron Horse Warcradle Scenics It’s not just miniatures this month; there’s also an exciting new Terrain Set and individual Long Hall available from the village of Estun that is perfect for games such as Age of Sigmar, Frostgrave and Call To Arms. Estun Village Set The Blacksmith of the Estun is one of the most revered men in the village. He may not be a warrior, though he could certainly hold his own in a fight. Instead, he is held in such high regard for without him the whole village would fall into disrepair. Everything from nails to horseshoes to swords makes its way out of that glowing forge. Even when all is quiet in Estun, the Tavern still has sounds of revelry. Mead, ale and wine from faraway lands are consumed by the hogshead. Life is hard in the mountains and everyone needs a place to ease the aching bones. Skalds know that they can pass through and get fed and watered for the price of a story. Can a village without a tavern truly be called a village at all? This set contains: 1x Estun Blacksmith 1x Estun Church 1x Estun Market Stalls 1x Estun Saw Mill 1x Estun Dwelling 1x Estun Watch Tower 1x Estun Tavern Estun Village - Long Hall The Long Hall is the most defensible building in the village. It has held against orcs, wolves, raiders and more eldritch enemies. It even survived a small fire after Belas the Bold tried throwing flaming axes in the hall during one particularly raucous festival. The Lord hands out justice here and all the village’s celebrations as well as funerals, which are all held within its stout walls. The commoners of Estun know this place as their refuge in dangerous times; the warriors know this as the place they will die to protect. This set contains: 1x Estun Long Hall There’s a lot to look forward to this month for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. What are you looking forward to the most? Make sure you don’t miss out when these go live for pre-order on the 25th of June 2022 from your FLGS or Wayland Games Online.

  9. May releases are now available to pre-order! Check out the Warcradle Studios Blog for more information.
  10. Raise the anchors and ready your horses as May is full of exciting new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus, and Warcradle Scenics. Following the Sultanate's introduction to Dystopian Wars last month it feels like something is missing, but what could it be? That's right, the Latin Alliance. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the French take to the seas in the name of the Alliance. The Sultanate, hearing of this return, deploy reinforcements of their own to prepare for what is to come. The skies over Wild West Exodus are filled with the distinct clang of metallic wings piercing through the air as the Enlightened’s vulture-like invention, the Apex Hellion swoop down on their unwitting victims. Red Oak continues to expand this month as the Red Oak Town Set 2 features more of your favourite scenery and terrain re-releases, now in beautiful colour, in a great value set. Make sure not to miss when these exciting new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics go live on the 29th of April 2022. Due to be released at the end of May 2022. Dystopian Wars The French begin to lower the hull of the Oriflamme into the water as they get ready to kickstart their navy with the Oriflamme Battlefleet Set. In aid of the Anatolia, the Sultanate strengthen their hold on the waters with the Sultanate Frontline Squadrons. Oriflamme Battlefleet Set Driven forward by the memories of past glory the Latin Alliance launch their first ships in the form of the French Oriflamme Battlefleet Set. At the heart of the Alliance battleline can be found the Oriflamme Battleship. Thoroughly modernised from the hulls of ageing Prince de Joinville class Battleships, the Oriflamme are the pride of the Republique. As much a work of art as a Battleship, even enemy crews can’t help but be impressed by the lines and craftsmanship of an Oriflamme cutting through the waves. This box contains: 1x Oriflamme Battleship 2x Cruiser (can be built as either a Loire, Picardy, Chevalier or Charlemagne Class ship) 4x Ecuyere Frigate Sultanate Frontline Squadrons The Sultanate cannot rest on their laurels this month and must make sure to keep up their presence with the introduction of the Sultanate Frontline Squadrons. This box contains: 2x Cruiser (can be built as either a Iskandar, Izmir, Pasha or Sadrazam Class ship. Both cruisers can also be combined to build a Hurrem Grand Cruiser or a Mehmed Grand Monitor) 4x Temir Frigate Wild West Exodus Keep your eyes to the skies this month as the Enlightened are busy tinkering to create even more Apex Hellions. Apex Hellions Previously seen in the Murder of Hellion Posse Set, the Apex Hellions are available to pre-order as their own separate set. The Apex Hellions are a refinement of Caym’s designs for winged constructs, often used as lieutenants, or more accurately pack leaders, for his forces. Apex Hellions fly in on great mechanical wings tearing apart their targets without remorse or any emotion apart from hate amplified by whatever processes Caym uses to control these soaring terrors. They are the first to engage the enemy, urged on by a monstrous will that only seeks to tear and rend. While they lack the ability to employ ranged weapons, their Hellion Evicerators are more than enough to tangle up an opponent before ripping them apart in a hideous display of slaughter. Science untempered by ethics is a horrifying thing. This box contains: 2x Apex Hellions Warcradle Scenics Expand your Red Oak town with even more detailed terrain for your tabletop to host shootouts and gunfights with the Red Oak Town Set 2. Red Oak Town Set 2 This set contains: 1x Residence 1x Distillery 1x Town House 1x Gallows and Clock Tower 1x Post Office 1x Cartwright 1x Bank 1x Watchtower As you can see May is full of exciting releases for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. Make sure to pre-order yours on the 29th of April from your FLGS or Wayland Games online. Stay up to date with everything we have in store right here on the Warcradle Studios Blog and make sure to let us know what you are most excited about over on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

  11. Hey mate, I hope you guys enjoy the weekend, it sounds like it will be a lot of fun. 1) There are at least one flying unit I am aware of in the game (X52 Patriot Automata for the Union), and my understanding is that the intention is for the developers to release more and more. There has been a sequence of releases over time to get the naval stuff going first. Likely we will see more stuff over the next year, but I cannot confirm anything. 2) The release communication for Warcradle is quite poor, I agree. Another user here mentioned the same thing, and that they actually felt way more engaged with a game as they got that communication. Not to say that's for everyone, but I totally get you. The main activity I'm aware of is a facebook group, but as with all things facebook that has a considerable amount of cons with it. I'm not on it, and have only interacted in passing so I can't comment on how much the business communicates with people there. However, Warcradle has been actively changing the ORBATs fairly regularly, as well as consistent model releases so I would say they are still reasonably engaged with the game. 3) Lol, yeah, this forum is super inactive. It's like 6-10 people occasionally posting. I'm not aware of any other area sadly so can't help you on this one. I'm usually around to reply but only having one person is bad because there would be SO MANY things I don't think of or don't know. Hopefully it picks up with some interest. You're right to worry, I've listed some concerns myself regarding the game. Models are all well and good, and some people just collect... but most buy to play the game, so that is where the focus needs to be. If you have old models, use those at the least and play a few games. That way you have a data point to decide if you like it enough to invest or not. I'm a proponent of try something first at the least (generally speaking). I have my suspicions about the intentions of the business... but I think we can really only make decisions based on what we can observe, and so far they have been mostly active at this stage.
  12. Hello, We are launching a little game this week-end with 3 friends. Ready to come back to Dystopian wars, nevertheless I have a few questions and observations. I do not see yet releases of aerial units. Any idea if this part is going to be developed/added later? Loved all the choices you had with Spartan games for aerial units. It added so much to the game. I used to play Blazing sun, the choice was wonderful: Bombers, Suzuka heavy bombers, Inari scout gyro, carriers etc... For me it's really an important part of the game, it adds so much flavor, tactics, it would be a real mistake not to develop this part. Talking about releases , and future concept, I do not see much really. If I remember correctly Spartan games was very active, showing 3D concepts of future releases etc... Here it seems so quite... it's a little worrying for new comers to join a "new" game... Is Warcradle studio still active? And lastly on the worrying side still, this forum is also not very active... Is there another active forum elsewhere? Voilà I am a little worried to be honest to dive in a new version of the game, as I do not see a lot of com from Warcradle, a dead forum... really strange... Regards
  13. The blog has now been linked so you can purchase the newest products through Wayland Games Alternatively, pre-order now from your FLGS.
  14. G'day Geekoo, I won' repeat what c2k has mentioned, they are great answers and not much more to be said. I'll tackle your other questions. 1) Sadly no. This will answer question 2 as well. The game is different enough to describe them as different formats, it's not really something you could meaningfully convert across and get the same impact. I won't say you can't interpret intent, but that is a far cry from hard conversion of numbers I'm afraid. In every ORBAT (refer to C2K's answer to question 7 here) there is a table at the bottom of the document detailing which new class the old vessels relate to for an easy reference. Note some scales are different in the new game, but that shouldn't impact play at a technical level. 3) This is a long one, and I won't wall-of-text you (I already do too much of that here). It's a re-work of the game from the ground up, however, it maintains to varying degrees the aesthetics and the mechanical feel of the older game. Primarily, simplification overall, complete rework of SRS and as I mentioned above, the stats used to play the game. If you want a longer answer, Happy to do so, just let me know. 4) When you say personalise do you mean change the weapons on the vessels of different classes? I don't remember custom ship rules so I will assume that's what you mean (correct me if I am wrong). That is very much still an aspect of the game to greater or lesser extents depending on the vessel. 6) Given that the models are a proprietary thing I highly doubt Warcradle sell 3d model details given that would undermine their only source of revenue for this game. However, i can't say for sure so you would need to approach them directly about that. I alluded to the scale/model thing in my answer 1, but fundamentally the intent seems to be to supersede the older models. It's better not to ACTUALLY think of this as V3, because that implies iterative improvement: it's a new game. 8) To my knowledge Warcradle doesn't host anything of the old games at all. I suspect you will need to go to other sources to find those.
  15. This April there is a lot to look forward to from Warcradle Studios, with exciting new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. April ushers in the introduction of a new faction to the sea as the Sultanate makes a valiant entrance to Dystopian Wars with the Anatolia Battlefleet Set. Waves begin to crash over the decks of a mobile stronghold as the Murmansk resurfaces for the Commonwealth and the Union call in more supporting vessels with the Union Support Squadrons. The wild side of Wild West Exodus gets that little bit wilder as the Ceruleans are back with a separate box of Cerulean Infiltrators for the Watchers. The town of Retribution returns to your tabletop with the Retribution Town range, now available as individual terrain kits. With so much to come for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics, make sure you don’t miss out when they are available to pre-order from the 25th of March 2022. Due to be released at the end of April 2022. Dystopian Wars The Sultanate joins the fray as the Anatolia Battlefleet Set is ready to set sail with their enriched knowledge unlocked by the New Learning. Almost as large as the Ice Maiden itself, the gigantic Murmansk Mobile Stronghold breaks the surface of the water and emerges in all its glory to repair any Commonwealth vessels. With these two huge releases the Union are forced to deploy additional reinforcements in the form of the Union Support Squadrons. Anatolia Battlefleet Set Once assumed to be at the brink of collapse due to their idleness, the Sultanate can no longer ignore the pressures of foreign enemies and has launched their first fleet to the seas of Dystopian Wars with the Anatolia Battlefleet Set. This box contains: 1x Anatolia Battleship 2x Cruiser (can be built as either a Iskandar, Izmir, Pasha or Sadrazam Class ship. Both cruisers can also be combined to build a Hurrem Grand Cruiser or a Mehmed Grand Monitor) 4x Temir Frigate Murmansk Battlefleet Set Rising from the depths, what at first looks like a small blot in the ocean becomes larger and larger until the massive Murmansk Mobile Stronghold breaks through the surface of the water. With a monumental crash of water the Murmansk is ready to aid any Commonwealth vessel. Part firebase and part repair yard, a Murmansk allows the Commonwealth to expand its theatres of operation around the globe. Utilising integrated void engine technology acquired by Helsinki Markov, the Murmansk can appear unexpectedly, rising from beneath the waves in a matter of minutes. The engineering teams aboard a Murmansk are so well drilled that they can even make emergency repairs during an engagement. Often an opponent of the Commonwealth thought a key target was critically damaged only for the brave teams aboard a nearby Murmansk to keep it in fighting condition. This box contains: 1x Mobile Stronghold (Can be built as either a Murmansk, Tobolsk, or Anastasia Class Ship) 4x Frontline Cruiser (can be built as either a Kutsov, Oleg, Sineus or Norilsk Class Ship) 2x Support Cruiser (can be built as either a Khatanga, Morozko or Pravda Class ship) 2x Stoletov Ekranoplan 8x Rurik Class Frigate 4x SRS Token Union Support Squadrons Following the soon-to-be released Enterprise Battlefleet Set, the Union are looking to strengthen their forces with the deployment of Support Squadrons. Packed with Cruisers and Automata this set adds a punch to any Union fleet. The Union fleet has seen a number of technological improvements since the defection of Nikolai Tesla from the Imperium, and a significant overall increase since the end of the Ore War. Support Cruisers and Automata have all been upgraded by the creative team in the Pipeworks. This box contains: 2x Union Support Cruisers (can be built as either a Discovery, Roanoke, California, Montgomery or Washington Class ship) 4x RC-52 Patriot Automata 2x SRS Tokens Wild West Exodus The pre-orders this month are out of this world as the Ceruleans return to Wild West Exodus. Eager to blend in and observe, these Cerulean Infiltrators are ready to aid any Watcher posse you may possess. Cerulean Infiltrators Hidden deep within society, the Cerulean Infiltrators have long lived amongst us and are now available outside of the Cerulean Clade Posse box. Full of undercover extraterrestrials, bring these masters of mimicking to your Watchers force. The Vreib possessed a naturally evolved chameleonic ability that helped them avoid or manipulate the many predators of their home world. When it was time for the species to join the Watchers Hegemony, this talent was seen as uniquely valuable. The Watchers spend centuries observing, trying to understand the sentient species of the galaxy. Being able to infiltrate such societies and live among them, even to think like them, was now possible thanks to the genetic talents of the Vreib. This box contains: 5x Cerulean Infiltrators Warcradle Scenics Now available for the first time in individual terrain kits, the bustling town of Retribution returns to your tabletop as the scene of epic gunfights and deadly shootouts. Retribution Town Range As the dust settles and the blood dries up in the scorching heat, the town of Retribution surely will not remain silent for very long. Following the conflict between Gustave Eiffel and Nikolai Tesla in Showdown at Retribution, the town of Retribution is now available as separate terrain kits to further customise the settings of your favourite wargames. There’s a lot to love this month with so much coming for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics. Make sure to pre-order yours on the 25th March 2022 from your FLGS or Wayland Games online. Want to keep up to date with all the latest news and releases?

  16. I can only help with questions 5 and 7. 5. The Japanese had a few releases so far. They did release the Tianlong, which are the dragon automata and there is a rule to make them a Japanese unit. There are more empire air units(an air fleet) planned in the future according to the orbat, but they will be Chinese at this point. 7. You build forces with battlefleets in orbats found here https://www.dystopianwars.com/factions. The generic battlefleet for Empire will allow you to mix units in 1 battlefleet, or you can take multiple battlefleets up to the points total of your game. As for the differences of Empire factions, Chinese use Alchemical weapons and have Paddlewheels(enables the contra-rotation action, allowing the ship to make a 90 degree turn on the spot), and Japanese have better access to Chita Submersibles(and more synergy) and have the Shadow Hunter trait(redeploy before the game starts).
  17. Hello to all, I am back after a few years, and I have seen that quite a things have changed. SO I have quite a few questions after watching a few battle reports, read parts of rules etc... I am not a huge fan of what I have seen in V3 rules. I think I did prefer the v2 rules. Nevertheless I see that new ships have been added in v3? Can I find a conversion table for stats V3 > V2? If i wanted to play in V3 could I find conversion tables for my old ships V2 > V3? What would be the main differences between the V2 and V3? In V2 I don't remember really (need to check my books and pdf) could you personalise ships? If it is not the case, how difficult is it to use an adpated table of personalisations from V3 > V2? I do not see a lot of air units. I loved those. Was playing the japanese fleet. Are those planned in the future? About the miniatures, are they compatible (old and new) is the scale very different? Any picture example? If there is a huge difference, do warcradle sells 3d Models for homemade print, I could therefore scale them down. Any page, or link with an overfly of strength and weakness of each factions? For instance if I wanted to play the Empire, could I mix chinese and japanese ships? Any links to old material, rules, updates, tables etc...? Voilà that's about all for now. Thanks!
  18. When moving forward or backward, as long as you choose a point where you will measure your distance and don't change it, you should end up with the same result in movement. So, if you measure from the tip of the bow, make sure point B is the tip of the bow. Personally, I like to measure via the center of the ship, because you have to measure weapon distance from that as well and it keeps good habits. As for the turning tool, you should align the second point to the center of the ship, and calculate your turn from there. The rulebook isn't clear on that because if you were to align the ship's center with the first point, you are just moving forward, and not really committing a turn.
  19. That happens with factions that didn't have a fleet released yet unfortunately. Once an Alliance fleet gets released, they usually flesh out the orbat more, as it will be at least version 1.00. As new stuff gets added to the orbat, they do continue to add to the "Counts as.. " list.
  20. Hello! I am new to DW, and i have some questions regarding the movement, and the turning template i watched some games in YT but is pretty confusing. The first question is, from where do i start measure the movement?, i cant find it in the rulebook, and watching some videos, some ppl measure from center, others from the stern or even the bow. The second its about turning, in the rulebook says you must put the turning template in the nearest border to the miniature central point, but in the rulebook diagram, the template is in the stern which imho its not the nearest point to the miniature center point, i tried watching some game, and mostly, ppl put the template about the side near the middle of miniature but others put the template in the stern. where iam supposed to put the turning themplate?. T Thx forehand? and safe navigation.
  21. I just went through all my legacy minis and made notes about what I have or don't have. I have a very thorough v.2 French fleet. Air, ground, navy-- everything well represented. My Vaubon was the pride of the fleet, fully painted, an absolutely gorgeous model and so powerful, it struck terror in the hearts of those who faced her! Using the "Counts As" list in v3, I now have..... 3 models. Oriflamme, Chevalier, and Ecuyer, of which I have 24 because all my Lyons and Chevaliers count as the same ship. I have 6 Oriflamme battleships because my dreadnaught and my Magentas both count as the same thing. All of my cruisters-- the Ecuyers, the Toulons, the Marseilles.... all the same ship. I have 20 models that have no matching model in the Counts As list. I am so disappointed, and I hope as the Alliance continues to be developed, this list gets revised pretty heavily. I mean, there aren't many people near me to play *with*, but I was hoping to cobble together two fleets and see if I could find someone to learn the new rules together.
  22. Which games produced by Warcradle Studios do you play? Just Dystopian Wars at the moment How long have you been playing these games? I've been playing since the release of the 2-player starter box Where do you play? I'm from Mississippi, USA. I play at my local game store and my friends and I have a gaming group that's about 30 years old. We started playing Warhammer 40K back around 1992. Which fleets and armies do you own? Which fleets and armies do you plan to add to your collection? Commonwealth, Enlightened and most recently, Imperium What is your favourite Warcradle Studios model? The Ice Maiden, although I don't have one yet. I can't find a retailer in the states that carries it, but I'm looking. Anything else you would like to tell the Warcradle Studios Community? I'm looking forward to meeting new friends and players here. And I can't wait until the game expands to cover ground forces.
  23. That's fine if that's the case. I really want to buy into the whole combat system and have massive battles on sea, air and land. I've seen so many cool pics from the original game and they look fantastic.

Amical partage, John de GWS
  25. I believe the scale change was between the old dystopian wars and the new version being released currently. Nothing has really been officially released about Armoured Clash yet.
  26. I'm relatively new to Dystopian Wars, but I've been following the game for years. Last year, I bought the "Hunt for the Prometheus" starter set and I've been steadily buying more fleets ever since. I'm a huge fan of the game now and was hoping that they would eventually reintroduce the ground/air combat version of the game. I had read that they might get to that eventually, but it would be a different scale. I certainly hope that's not the case. One of the biggest draws to the original game (at least for me) was seeing old pictures and battle reports of the combined arms (sea, air and land). Adding the ground units in a different scale makes zero sense, because you can't combine squat at that point. The benefits of making a compatible scale should be obvious -- especially with the fans of the original game. They've played it and seen it work effectively. If the developers at Warcradle do shift the scale, I think they're hurting themselves and the future of DW. So, if anyone in charge of the game reads this, PLEASE consider making the ground combat compatible with the naval combat. The two games should be in scale with each other (at least within reason). I used to be an Epic 40K player back in the day and one of the best aspects of that game was the use of combined arms. Infantry, ground vehicles, air support, artillery and the titans. I'd love to see that idea carried forward with Dystopian Wars and I would be willing TO THROW MONEY AT YOU for doing this. If the scale ends up being different, I'll probably just play the naval game and that'll be it.
  27. I order all of my stuff from Miniature Market (online) and I just have to be patient with restocks. My local shop has never heard of the game, but was fascinated when I showed the owner the game and product line. He checked with his supplier and they were having trouble getting stock in the U.S. But to start up some interest, I'm going to host some games with my 3 fleets. Hopefully, things will get better over time. I just don't expect a lot of stores to stock this in the U.S.
