    Agree. Spartan´s rules were very good and ships and scenery were amazing. I am from Spain and I am sure that a good support from the company (like rules and books translated) were very good to expand the game. Spartan Games did not translate the rules and books, and here in Spain it is a problem. Many gamers do not buy games without translation. Anyway, me and my friend (and others), play English games and want a lot of Spartan´s DW and FA ships and scenery.

    I don't think respect is the case, just a relatively small entity stretching itself to far to fast and with very little understanding of what made the fan base. This is all opinion, as I don't see very many people here on this forum as from the old days, and it is the same handful of naysayers throughout, of which I can claim to be.

    Yes, better wait, "Restock expected - available to order" isn't a valid option. I although have a wish list, but this will definitely have to wait.

    Hmm, really? It's not bad to get money for delivering later without a date. I ordered DW-models in september, some where marked as "items in stock" others as "Restock Expected: Available To Order". I thougt not bad, maybe I have to wait but that is not the problem. 10 days later I got a mail, that Wayland is sorry, but not able to deliver all models. But I have to do nothing, they will send me another information the next week. That second information never arrived. Therefore I opened a ticket october the 25th and asked about the models. I got the return, that they are not able to deliver all models. Because of this I asked for part delivery and two weeks later I got the first 5 models. I thanked for this and asked for information about the rest. First I got no information, therefor I reopned (well it was not really cloesed) the ticket and started the discussion here. The warcradle-guys here are again not able to help. Call the helpdesk.. I'm still in touch with them. They can't give me any date when they are able to deliver the models but offered me a refund. I don't want the money back, I like to get the models. They are a present for my boys. Again, in my opinion it's a very bad behavior to mark 100-200 models of DW as "Restock Expected: Available To Order" but can't even give an information about the date, when they are able to deliver. Poor, only poor... And not a good sign for 3.0. But this is only my single opinion and maybe not representative for the rest of the customer.

    Fishing for a strike no.2? Not nice, @RuleBritannia, not nice at all On the other hand this is a topic I'm also following with interest, as I also have ships waiting to be moulded. I really want to show that there's still interest in FSA (trying to vote with my wallet), but on the other hand I know, that I'm not really the target audience, so I don't really expect my personal preferences to be taken into consideration (weird huh? Giving someone your money to show that you care, while not expecting that they will care? I'm sure that there's a word for that mental state ). Anyway. All I think I can do is wait. Wait for my ships, wait for the beta, trying to give my feedback for the future generations to enjoy the product, that is probably not designed to appeal to me. But maybe a christmas miracle is about to happen! It's not like warcradle is struggling to meet the demands of holiday orders for their more financiallly sensible lines or trying to build stock for next years Dystopian wars release... oh wait. Sigh. This post turnet out to be a bit of a downer, but there are interesting things just over the horizon! I'm sure a teaser from the new rules would elevate the dreadful winter mood here (hint-hint wink-wink to Big Brother who is always watching)!

    Agree with the majority here, it seems. I've pretty much consigned myself to think DW just aint gonna happen. And it was 1 of my very favorite games to play. In retrospect, I wish some other company would have bought the rights to this one.

    To be fair rebuilding is going to be darn hard until there's a concrete release date from WC for when they are going to launch the game. Until then its all ticking over really unless your local scene has a lot of legacy ships to play with and you can get into the beta through the FB groups. That said every day we get closer and closer to that magical time when WC announces it!

    Exactly. Constructive criticism is very good for Human Being and for Companies (they are built for persons). Persons and companies need other points of view to grow, or we can stay in self-complaisance and then, we can collapse...

    It doesn't help that Warcradle only bothers to put up pictures on Facebook forums these days. If they don't care about these forums they are a bit of a waste of time.

    Yes, that would be the main idea. Something like that, or simply several sections one above the other, with the most recent one above. Yes this is clearly for completeness' sake as you say, if I had any info on FA 1.0 i would write that down as well. By the way, I simply cannot find most of the fluff from Spartan's era. Any leads you could give me besides trying to find an old book for sale somewhere ? I can't seem to find anything besides the rulebooks. Recent Changelog : - Some more minor factions completed - Pages regrouping unreleased ships by factions and projects that didn't see actual production.

    No, no harm in doing it. As the developer of the Firestorm Fleet Manager, I've sunk plenty of time into trying to help the game along. I personally wouldn't spend much time on the old system, but you are of course free to update as you see fit. I just don't think there is much demand for it, other than for completeness' sake.

    It is what it is. A little bit of constructive criticism is good for the soul, and a reminder that fans exist as more than just overexcited wallets but have needs and requirements is useful for any company.

    Hello and thanks for replying. I disagree with both of you on some points. Even if Warcradles makes drastic changes on some things or even on every thing, that doesn't erase anything from FA's story as a game. A Wiki must be as complete as it can be on a subject. Therefore, there will simply be several parts to each article, explaining what the subject was in Spartan's era, and what it is now. Of course, the newest fluff and rules will be written above the old ones and distinction will be made clear to avoid any confusion. Making something new doesn't mean you have to put the old things in the trashbin, or that you have to re-start everything from scratch. What do you think ?

    Warcradle said early on existing fans weren't enough to support the game hence everything being redesigned and rewritten. I think it's a bad decision, the existing fans kept Spartan going and would buy stuff to expand fleets but making models that don't fit and radically different lore puts off your banked existing fans without necessarily getting you new fans. The WWX Facebook page and Warcradle's own Dystopian wars page are still much smaller than Spartan's.

    Hi @Paraxanthine. I think an update to the wiki is a good idea...just not quite yet. Until we have a beta draft of the new Firestorm in hand, we won't know the scope of changes to the game. Anything you update to the wiki has a good chance of needing to be changed again (maybe drastically) when the new edition hits. We have very little known about the future at this point, so I'd take a wait and see approach before diving into the wiki.

    As far as I know, except for the Halo stuff, they bought the whole caboodle, including UCS. I suspect issue two has more to do with it, or they simply aren’t interested, in which case, in the interest of the UCS players community, they should pass the stuff on to someone who is.
  29. 1 point
    As far as I know the entire UCS range got resculpted, and the only range still missing models was the Sky Pirates fleet. Quality wise these miniatures are as good as the most recent FA/DW stuff. I honestly haven't a clue why Warcradle don't simply start casting the UCS miniatures again. F.

    Model availability

    Some good points Overread, but 1. It kind of does considering the amount of demand the Spartan models seem to be having with people spending hundreds of pounds or dollars on finishing collections, and shows there is support for continuing Spartan's vision. It also doesn't explain why Warcradle won't tell us when stuff isn't available rather then they are waiting for a chance to give the moulds another go. 2. Again let us know when the mould goes down. We understand its a crapshoot, we just need honesty. 3. They are doing metal bits now. This isn't a complaint about the range of models, just that Warcradle won't tell us if models are gone for good or new ones will be cast later.

    Boxed sets

    It will be interesting to see how the final rules shake out...from the beta, it felt like the stats were set such that having a squadron of ships that was one or two short wasn't nearly as big of a deal as it was in 2.5 and earlier. That might help mitigate the return of the "Hotdogs in packages of 10, hotdog buns in packages of 8" issue with box sets and expansion packs.

    Boxed sets

    The reveal in the latest blog update is that boxed sets will be one large two cruisers and four frigates. Can we at least get three cruisers. This was something Spartan did early on and a nuisance then. Blisters, boxed sets whatever are so much better when they contain a full unit.

    Boxed sets

    Just seems an awkward number of both, and something Spartan did that fan pressure quashed as it required you to buy multiple packs just to get one complete squadron. It also depends on how you can buy further models either as individuals, blisters, unit packs or only in themed boxed sets.

    Would they have let you know of the product was no longer available because the mould had broken? Will they let us know if models will not be produced again because there is no more moulds publicly?

    If you head over to https://blog.warcradle.com You'll see that there is lots of updates about up and coming products. If you want a product that no longer appears on the website then it would be a product we are currently unable to produce, for a myriad of reasons. If you have an existing order then feel free to contact customer services. Outside of that keep an eye on our social media and blog. If a product is available it will be listed on the website and things be listed and unlisted when they are available. If you have an outstanding order with a product that shows as no longer being available I would suggest contacting customer services. The nature of casting and production does mean that occasionally there will be discrepancy where production will cease as a mould breaks before we are able to fulfil the order volume and the option will be given to wait and find out if any additional moulds for the product will pass quality checking or receive a refund.

    Just a point, but sometimes when casting you don't know a mould is worn until you cast with it and find out. Same for when they break. So some of the models might break right when WC goes to cast them up for your order. The issue, I believe, is more one of timing and expectation of delivery than it is purely about breaking moulds (I'd imagine most buying these models have been buying models for a while and long enough to accept that moulds do break and to know that these are out-of-production models being cast only until those moulds break).

    I think Banelord has a genuine point. If you are relying on moulds you won't repair or replace it is imperative to let people know if this is the final run and if the model will no longer be available from now on or if it is just a hiatus. In his defence, it is easy to read helpfulness as condescending online without the context of speech.

    @Warcradle Tarnya, I have an outstanding order (and the modells are still at the website) and of course (do you think I'm an idiot?) I'm in touch with the customer support team. Therefor I got a first delivery, but I don't have any information about the rest. These models are still marked as "available to order", unfortunately they are not available for dispatch - and that doesn't change all the time. And nobody seems to be able when this changes or even if. Again, why do you mark mdoels as "restock expected: available to order", but can't tell anything about the shedule since weeks? I have a lot of experiance with plastics and moulds, if this is so crucial, then you should remove all the models and left alone only the few which are "in stock".

    You are right, technology allows to increase the detail of the models. Spartan's designs improved over time. I see a lot of work in the Warcradle´s new models. I value that, but it is so much baroque for me. A more sober work can be good. Look at these models at the end of Saprtan (I think they are simply perfect):

    We are getting a very cut down version of DWars early next year. There will be much reduced starter sets with Battleship, two cruisers out of three needed for a squadron and four frigates out of five needed for a squadron and will only initially have British and Americans with redesigned models that are much bigger than Spartan's and with a different aesthetic making cross play more difficult. However, despite only three ship classes there will be alternate turrets so you can play your way.

    Hi @Texas_Archer, @Lex Orion and @Banelord, some items in the Warcradle Classics range may have been removed from the website due to the health of the old masters and moulds. If we're unable to produce items to a high-quality standard with the masters and moulds available, the items will be removed from the range. The items seen in the Warcradle Classics range are older designs and essentially last-chance-to-buy items. By nature, these items are produced in limited numbers, as sadly, once masters and moulds come to an end, so does our production ability. If either of you have an outstanding order that you are waiting to receive, please do get in touch with our customer support team - http://helpdesk.warcradle.com/support/home - they will be able to look into this further for you.
