    Project Insanity

    Greetings! I have been a silent member of the group for a while now, and have been a fan of all things Dystopian and Spartan games since the beginning. Now that 3.0 is upon us, I decided to make a big old table with some mass armies on them to show my dedication and also my love of the models of Dystopian wars. I call this "Project Insanity". The target is to finish a table and paint all the minis needed for it by the start of november 2019, so we can take the table to the Crisis show in Antwerp. In the pictures you will see only the land forces for the moment, but the table will have an equal amount of land/air/sea forces. All land forces have been cleaned, glued to bases and sanded, in preparation for undercoating. Size of the table has been set at 5m. on 1m80. I post this, because this makes the process easier for me and because I want to bore you with my "illness" ;) Also included is one picture of 2 test tanks to show to what quality I want to have them painted. I wish thee all a good week and lots of painting/gaming!

    custom kedorian fleet

    Definitely goa'uld mother ships, but hey, not only do they have very similar attitudes to kedorians, the overall rounded ship fits the kedorians theme as well i don't know if your looking for recommendations (it being a work in progress) but you could perhaps cut out some spires from a flat piece of acrylic (inexpensive, if difficult) and set them between the three large gaps around the vessels (using epoxy for a good bond) this would fill the gap with detail, as well as bend them further toward the kedorians theme (You could even add smaller spires to the smaller gaps if the larger ships) Overall those are looking great keep it up

    They look hauntingly familiar, though it might be the goa'uld colour scheme.

    Hail, fellow WWX brethren. I have recently begun making a more concerted effort to get into and enjoying this amazing game. In the last 9 months or so, my small play group and I (3 to 4 players total) have only managed a game or two, every few months. This has led to us effectively learning the game every time we pick it up, and never exiting that beginner stage. As I am generally the "Rules guy" in my gaming groups, I have decided that this state is not acceptable, and now try to play at least one to two games a month, and engage in the online community where possible. I have listened to every episode of the Black Hoof Saloon Podcast, (amazing work guys!), and kept up with the FB groups that I know of. I am hoping in the coming months to engage in this forum and hopefully participate in drumming up some conversation. It will likely be scattered and infrequent, but I shall try my best! Good Hunting! Kostas, Adelaide, South Australia.

    I’m excited by the announcement of Lost World Exodus. As formal player of Dystopian legion waited this for some time. And I’m pleased to see that some of the concepts are inspired by troops available in DL (but with Warcradle’s style!) I hope every old miniature would have a new LWX profiles. Do you think there will be a beta test for this game?

    To be brutally honest I hate the videos. as a way of taking in information. It takes ages to understand anything, things are rather vague and changeable and as a style they don't appeal to me. I am therefore running off blogs and second hand accounts and stuff mentioned earlier. If you have the enthusiasm to clarify how it works that would be great.

    And to clarify, basically all three dice types effect 6s Light/black, a 6 is just 1 success, like a 4 or 5,. If you have 8 dice, 8 is the maximum number of successes, and you would need a lot of luck Heavy/blue, 6s are 2 successes but do not explode

    IIRC, it's based on Light, Heavy and Exploding dice, also know as Red, Blue and Black Light/Black succeed on 4+ Heavy/Blue on 4&5, 6's count as 2 successes Exploding/Red as is in Firestorm currently. It was used in Planetfall & Taskforce, and was used in tandem with degradation affecting successes rolled rather than the dice pool. Whilst I don't mind the dice types, the whole successes being reduced fights against the whole exploding die mechanic.

    Miniatures from DL or WWX, seem to be more or less the same size (but I don't have WWX miniature to be sure) I really expect that every units available for DL will have a new profiles for LWX As Rulebritannia, I understand that LWX will be mode focus on troops and commandment, than WWX. But I don't expect big changes in term of numbers of mini on the table. We’ll see… Edit: About miniature size I find this picture: Seems ok for me

    Quick and the Dead...

    Note it says "enemy model's Combat Action." So you're incorrect, Burson_Carpathian. Note also that when making a Combat Action with a unit, you are supposed to fully resolve one model's attacks at a time. So, yes, if the first model's attack is a rifle, you could opt to QatD or not, and then if the second model's attack is a gatling you could QatD attempt on that. Edit: and yes, I know a lot of people roll all the dice for a unit at the same time, but this is technically incorrect; you should be rolling only a single model's attacks at a time.

    The Lament of Planetfall

    I've continued to buy up helixes to flesh out my Aquan, Directorate, Relthoza and Terran armies, as well as adding new armies for Dindrenzi and Sorylians which are in the construction phase. Only opponent I have left is my son though. ......when Planetfall returns (if...) I will be ready to hit the ground running......

    Introduce Yourself

    Greetings all! My name is Kostas, and I came to this fine institution as a refugee from Firestorm Armada! I was a Vanguard for the old game, and am excited to see what Warcradle do with the IP. Whilst here, I happened to notice WWX, and after reading a bit off fluff, I was hooked on the Warrior Nations. I figured I would use the handy template Warcradle provided to share a bit about myself. Which games produced by Warcradle Studios do you play? I currently play Wild West Exodus and am eagerly waiting for Firestorm Armada. I also have some Australians for Dystopian Wars that are awaiting entry into the new system. How long have you been playing these games? I played Firestorm Armada for about 2 years, and have been dabbling in WWX for about a year now. Where do you play? I generally play at Garrison Wargaming Club in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia. Which fleets and armies do you own? Which fleets and armies do you plan to add to your collection? I am the proud owner of the 721st Stellar Charter Armada, comprising some 70 odd Terran Alliance vessels of all classes. When complete, the Armada will stretch to over 140 vessels and span multiple battle fleets. I also own a small fleet of Dindrenzi rebels, bent on avenging Dramos. I own a small flotilla of Royal Australian Dystopian Wars vessels that have never been used. Finally, my latest acquisition is the proud, noble Warrior Nations of the Wild West. I own the Tribal Retribution posse and some added reinforcements from the 1st ed starter box. I plan on expanding all my current forces as the games update to allow for it, but for WWX, I plan to expand into the Lawmen as a second faction, which will allow me to run demos for the game, hopefully. What is your favourite Warcradle Studios model? So many stunning sculpts in Warrior Nations alone, let alone the rest of the model range! If pressed, I would have to say that Walks Looking holds a special place in my heart. Anything else you would like to tell the Warcradle Studios Community? I am excited about getting into these games and hopefully having some great conversations on these forums! Good hunting!

    Could someone from warcradle confirm are the ships marked as 'awaiting restock' on wayland games' website actually just being cast on demand? or are we genuinely waiting on a restock? I'd just like to know whether it makes more sense to wait until the stock levels are updated on the website before blowing some payday moulah!

    The curtains are pulled back, the fog has cleared, and the eight Great Powers of the Dystopian Age have sent expeditions to the distant shores of Antarctica. What will they find? It’s time to explore the Lost World! The icy wilderness of Antarctica holds a centuries-old secret buried in its frozen depths. This alien structure, known only as the Vault, contains marvels beyond human understanding. Now the Vault has been breached and an inexplicable transformation has created a Lost World of dense jungles, vast labyrinthine chasms and fiery volcanoes. Fuelled by rumour alone, the mighty empires of the Dystopian Age have sent expeditions to the distant shores of Antarctica. Traversing the exterior’s miles of ice and rock, these expeditions have finally reached the wild and wondrous interior of the Lost World. Scattered throughout this rich and varied landscape are seams of fabulous minerals, hyper-evolved megaflora and the menacing roar of new and terrifying beasts that call this Lost World home. What is Lost World Exodus? Lost World Exodus is a 35mm scale skirmish wargame set in the awe-inspiring but deadly lands of a transformed Antarctica. In this alternate history, might makes right as the eight Great Powers of the world desperately seek any advantage so that they may rise supreme in this Dystopian Age. Lead your force of fantastically detailed and evocative miniatures to explore the Lost World and seize its wealth for your people. But foolhardy commanders should beware, your enemies and even the very land itself are just as intent on keeping these secrets to themselves. There are eight Factions battling for control of the Lost World. Each Faction represents one of the Great Powers of the Dystopian Age. They are: The Latin Alliance The Commonwealth The Celestian Empire The Prussian Imperium The British Crown The Covenant of the Enlightened The Union of Federated States The Ottoman Sultanate While Lost World Exodus shares the ‘Exodus’ core rules, it brings a number of unique unit types and special rules that make these eight Factions play very differently from those found in Wild West Exodus. In Lost World we see Commander units leading Detachments. These Detachments include Specialists that may be combined with Troop units to enhance their abilities and performance in game. In this manner the Enlightened and Union, while already seen in Wild West Exodus, have a different structure and behaviour to reflect the different aspects of those factions found in the Lost World. Narratively, Lost World Exodus presents a self-contained theatre of conflict, in the same way that Wild West Exodus does. The nefarious Frontier Outlaw Jessie James is no more concerned about the aerial exploits of Sky-Captain Betty Parkhurst above Antarctica than she is of his latest audacious robbery in Red Oak. This allows players to fully immerse themselves the rich narrative and setting of their chosen Exodus without concern that the wider conflicts of the world make their efforts insignificant. Of course as Lost World Exodus and Wild West Exodus share core rules, players of both can take part in exciting and challenging competitive tournaments and casual games! With fourteen distinct factions spread over two games, there really has never been a better time to jump into the Dystopian Age in 35mm scale. Lost World Exodus is due for release in late 2019 after the launch of Dystopian Wars - a thrilling game of 1/1200 scale naval combat in the Dystopian Age We’re proud to introduce the first miniature for Lost World Exodus, and the 2019 promotional miniature for Warcradle Studios, Jadzia Kosciuszko - Winged Hussar Captain! Jadzia will be available to purchase from booth (404) and those attending AdeptiCon will see the new miniature in all her glory. She’ll also be available to purchase from our online store between 3:30pm on the 28th March until 9pm on the 31st March (UK time) while we are at AdeptiCon. View the full article

    Decimator is easy, though I've never playtested it my first idea would be like this: If all Weapons contributing to an Attack have the Decimator Warheads MAR and the Attack equals or exceeds the target’s DR, the target Squadron must take an immediate Disorder Check. If the Attack equals or exceeds the target’s CR, the target Squadron is immediately Disordered. If an instant Disorder is too much, as an alternative I would have it work on a Critical Hit and each multiple crit after that add +1 to the number of successes needed on the Disorder Check. For example: a Decimator weapon scores a Hit on a cruiser so it makes a standard Disorder Check requiring two successes on the roll to avoid being Disordered, on a Critical hit it would require three successes to avoid Disorder, on a double crit it would require 4 successes, etc.

    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.
