    Introduce Yourself

    Salutations from Bryan over here in the US, Arkansas specifically. Currently have not had the fortune to play anything from the ranges yet, but I am eager to get my hands on some models. Looking at maybe the Russians for Dystopian Wars, strongly liking the feel of "The Enlightened" or " The Warrior Nation" for WWE, and if the chance should ever rear its head, I want some Aquans from Firestorm. To my knowledge, no one around me plays so maybe I can get some folks into some shenanigans. The model that has really caught my eye is the "Constructed Uhlans". Zombies on attack jet bikes just rings a big bell with me. Hope to learn a lot from veteran members here!

    Model availability

    You are right. A friend and me began to play Firestorm Armada since 3 or 4 years ago. We were enthusiastic with the ship´s models (really awesome), rules and background. And DW were in our wish list. I fall in love for the DW minis when I saw the Prussian Imperium Sky Fortress for the first time. The end of Spartan Games was a shock for us. And the Warcladle announcement was encouraging. Awesome minis, background and good rules are the best basis as possible. A good job with this legacy could be a secure succes. And periodic (near in time) news are needed. The best way to expand a game is to have enthusiastic gamers (with the game and the company). Then, we need the security of the old model availability and the knowledge of the future of these games. Same: news, news, news....

    Making a Teaching Scenario

    Apologies for resurrecting a dead thread, but I had some questions about this Scenario design, as I am about to start running demos in my home city. I was wondering how you got all the background images and logos and altered them to suit your particular scenario? Also, the green and red cutouts are fantastic! I am a bit of an editing and photoshop noob. Thanks in advance.

    Totems placement

    In this situation, the rules for Dispersed Deployment override the rules for summoning portals, as they start the game on the table. So the Totems would be placed anywhere on the table, at least 6" from each other or a board edge, and outside of Deployment Zones without scattering.

    Model availability

    I think we all want to be positive, but it would be damned sight easier if Warcradle could get a bit more positive about their Spartan heritage, their Dystopian wars and Firestorm ranges, and they realised that the community, even when critical, wants to help. Its been nearly two years, we just want some more fancy boats, and with the long timescale things are taking we need to make sure the community is involved and engaged,
  9. Lex Orion

    Model availability

    I will try to be positive. We have more ships. They are gorgeous. Firestorm (and Dystopian Wars) are fantastic games. I hope that these games will grow and we will get more news here.
  10. RuleBritannia

    Model availability

    I'm sure any incorrect statement would be swiftly corrected. Warcradle do seem more facebook centric, which is fine unless you are banished from the official facebook groups due to an excess of passion for the setting. But official announcements of the expanding ranges would get more publicity.
  11. Lex Orion

    Model availability

    Yes, I saw it. It is good. And seems that we will get Tarakians! It is incredible. Or they are so low of staff or the old Spartan´s games seems unimportant to them, or we are unimportant to them. They do not take care of the forum. We are alone here.
  12. RuleBritannia

    Model availability

    I don't get why this isn't advertised?
  13. Duetzefix

    Model availability

    I haven't seen it mentioned yet but the range of available miniatures has silently expanded. RotO Aquans, Sorylian gunships, Ba'Kash battle carrier, lots of Directorate and Relthoza, Tarakian fighter tokens (lol), Oroshan and Dindrenzi escorts etc.
  14. FgStaton

    Totems placement

    I'm a little confused on how they are place at the start of the game after trailfinder. Do you measure and roll for placement with -1 for ever inch using a&m totals to make 10? Or do you just place them anywhere in the board 6" from the edge ?
  15. Duetzefix

    Duetzefix' weird little ships

    Thanks, that's really kind of you to say. Fashionably late here are the Aquan SRS that have been lying around for weeks but I only just got around to take a picture of: And, as promised, Annihilation-class gunships Kelenken and Paracrax, ready for duty: The Turmoils should be quicker, I hope.

    The bases on the SRS are very neat, I might use it on mine!

  18. “I just want to see how it works.” If any man can lay claim to a true mantra, that would be Viktor Beitel. One of the earliest memories he could bring to mind, heavily featured the antique clock on the mantel. He remembered it vividly; an exquisite model encased in lovingly polished wood and wound meticulously by his father every night. The ticking was steady and precise, soothing even. He was often to be found in the drawing room where it presided grandly over the fireplace like some elderly retainer. He would sit on the carpet and stare at it for inordinate periods of time. Early memories they were and fond ones, indeed. One of his later memories was the scolding that he’d received because of the clock. He couldn’t have been more than four years old, but the memory was always revisited in perfect clarity. His father had caught him with the beautiful timepiece, removed carefully from its pride of place and with its innards meticulously spread out on the floor in front of a fascinated child. Cogs were arranged slightly obsessively in order of ascending size, springs were laid out and the clock’s hands were being held up for deep scrutiny. “I just wanted to see how it worked,” had been his juvenile defence. It hadn’t stopped his father from administering a good thrashing, although all things were relative. Isaac Beitel was fond of his precocious child and it was more for the look of the thing than any actual desire to harm the boy. It satisfied Viktor’s strict mother well enough. Later, when his wife was out visiting friends, Isaac sat down with his son and showed him how the clock fit back together. The immense satisfaction that Viktor had known when the clock resumed its steady rhythm had been tangible. The understanding that came with seeing how the clockwork mechanism worked fired his natural desire for learning and he became an avid student of exactly how it was that things worked. Isaac indulged him in his curiosity, finding him simple items to strip back and study. When the family’s carriage was serviced, Viktor was allowed to crawl beneath it and learn about the axel and how it connected to the wheels. It was not surprising that he excelled in the sciences at school, although his teachers often murmured that it was always best not to seat him beside a window for fear he would ‘be off, flying with the birds’. However, this desperate desire to understand did not always meet with approval. When he’d been eleven, his father had needed to step in and stop him from dissecting the family dog after it suddenly died of old age. “I just wanted to see how it worked,” he’d protested. Isaac quietly despaired. “The boy will be a doctor, or an engineer,” was the general consensus. As he grew older and his notions frequently veered toward the fanciful, his mother fretted that he was likely to become a wastrel. He was always buried in his books, always trying to build something, rarely succeeding, but demonstrating an indomitable spirit that kept him going forward. Both of his parents had died before he had completed his schooling and while he had only ever had a stiff and formal relationship with his mother, he grieved her loss. In part, the devastation it caused his father meant the man never fully regained his will to live. He followed his wife into eternal rest soon after and left behind a broken-hearted son. • • • When his father had passed on, the clock had become his. It was the greatest comfort he possessed and a means by which he could always remember where his furious desire to know how the world worked had originated. Viktor wound it every night. When he was frustrated, he turned to its solicitous ticking for comfort, in the way that others turned to crime, or to madness – or to drink. In the wake of the death of his parents, he’d spent his share of time contemplating the world from the bottom of a bottle of bourbon, but it had given him little insight into universal truths and had gifted him with entirely too many bad headaches. So he had sobered up and hunted gainful employment in the form of a sequence of increasingly unsatisfying apprenticeships. Nothing ever seemed to fit. He’d worked for a clockmaker for a short while, but it was evident that he was more keen to take the things apart, than he’d been to put them back together. A stint in a carriage works followed, but that similarly failed to hold his attention. Then came the glorious times. The age of RJ-powered technology. It was the time to be alive and Viktor grabbed at it with both hands. He learned the process of distillation and refining working in a poorly-ventilated room with a handful of others. Producing the end product that was shipped out to fuel generators, weapons and vehicles in the United States and beyond. But Viktor would never be happy with that. Not when the raw material had so much potential. It had to have potential. He knew that. It was just a case of… taking it apart. Seeing how it functioned. Interest turned to fascination and, over the years, fascination slowly turned to obsession. Obsession led to, often unsuccessful, experimentation. But every failed attempt to understand what he believed to be the deeply hidden transformative properties locked within the core of the miracle substance was met with the same eight words, “I just want to see how it works.” View the full article

    For anyone left here many thanks for the comments, haven't been around in a while. My interest in the game has resurfaced recently so finished up the bombers and fighters. Managed to find another pack of RSN Cruisers so will be arriving end of month.

    Well guess my DW stuff is going back in to the cupboard until next year.... along with this account! If the blog announcement says they'll be doing DW BETA games at Spiel '19 in Oct. there is either 0 chance of a release before christmass OR they arent sure of what their time scales are......

    More info on 3.0 imminent?

    No news are bad for any company. This state takes to my friend and me to DW 2.5 and the classics (Spartan´s) ships and scenery. We are looking for ships and scenery for 2.5. 3.0 is far to us now. We are spending a lot of money now. Hard to know if we will get 3.0 ships...
  28. Lex Orion

    Warcradle Classics?

    Hi all, I have seen more "New" items for DW and FA last friday in Wayland. This seems that they (Warcradle) will make all the items. I speculate..., because they don´t tell us nothing... sad. Anyway, I continue shopping in the second hand market, for the still missing items. No news, money for the second hand and no money for warcradle... sad again.
