    Duetzefix' weird little ships

    Thank you for your feedback! The colour scheme on the Aquans is basically what I came up with after I saw a picture of a whale shark. It's easy to do (just spray the bottom white then the top brown) and looks pretty, although it probably makes the whole fleet look really brown on the table. In my experience the problem with many space ship models is that you can't really see all the detail on the bottom of the ship and, in this case, the colour of the bottom, which is a bit of a waste because it's pretty to look at. The Directorate colour scheme is something I think I blatantly stole from Kurgan IIRC. I'm not 100% on my interpretation of the colour scheme on the frigates, I think it's a bit boring and could use a little more contrast. Maybe some brighter green stripes on the dark green parts for the larger ships? Here's a better picture of the Anathema drone, the one I took yesterday was too blurry to post: And here's two pictures of the Shiva gunships, the one on the left is the one I finished today, the right one has been finished for about three weeks, now: Not sure why exactly the left one is so much darker than the right one but I'm just going to accept it. Left one isn't completely varnished, either, my spray can of matte varnish crapped out on me yesterday, maybe that'll change something on how it looks. Next up: Sulis heavy cruisers, probably by the end of the week. First I need a new can of varnish.

    The beta ship rules are generic and not nation specific....so only a few shops from the crown actually match up to the rules. (Dominions, tribals fit to the cruiser. The valients fit hunter subs, and the vanguard is the assault sub..) Edit - protectors are frigates...better match than the British ones the Cerberus I’d run as heavy cruisers, and the Victoria’s and tasmanias as normal cruisers. The crocs I’d run as hunter subs in the beta

    It puts the paint on the resin or else it gets the hose again! So, it's been a while. Nice being back. I painted some things in the last few weeks, didn't want to keep them from the public. Or the public from them. Anyway, I could use some motivation to keep going. First the Aquan half of the Taskforce box: Carcinus and Ladon Ladon shows off its engines Oh no, Carcinus fell over! Nereids, still don't know where their engines are so I just guessed And the first finished things from RotO, more to come: Chimaeras, confused The belly of the ... beast? Small aggressive aquatic creature? Liquidators, with purpose Nothing funny to see here, folks Strange structure I think it just turned on ... So cute! Let me know what you think!

    Introduce Yourself

    <cough cough>... excuse the dust! Didn't expect this account to still be live! Name is Nat, Been playing DW since v1... and was part of the community online team that helped with the transition of v2.0... stopped playing slightly before 2.5 was released due to moving and the new club in Essex had even less players. Still with the link to the beta test onthe wayland games email thought I'd give it a look, like the look of how the game flows, need to give it a try when I've got time.

    new rules set

    Soooooooooo... DW Beta is coming to a close at end of June. Anyone care to speculate about the timeline? Anyone hoping for Q3? Or will the finalisation of the actual DW profiles take much more time and developer resources? Do you guys think that the FSA beta can be similar to the DW in that can be concluded without seeing actual profiles for the fleets, or the distinction between them will require stats closer to the intended final versions (Shunting, shields, cloaks, Cyberwarfare etc.)? Too early to speculate? Shall I wait a few more months? Ok ok. Patience. I know. I'll see myself out.

    Permissions to see new posts

    I have already raised this with Warcradle support team via the contact us link.... However is anyone else only seeing new posts on the front page list and not anywhere else? including the 'latest posts' side bar and the sub forums themselves? I'm seeing this on the broadcast posts, eg the one about Bill & Ted game & the one about WWX June previews.

    Really nice work on the lenses in the last photo - and I like the way you've split the contrast on the ships with a darker top and then a brighter underside to bring out the detail of the underside in a way that often gets overlooked in spaceship games.

    Permissions to see new posts

    I can see new posts on the "latest posts" tab over on the right (like this new thread that appeared); as well as in the forums normal pages. That said I've got moderator access so if there is something glitching in permissions I might not see it. Have you made sure to 1) Clear your web cache 2) Try a different browser 3) If you can try a different computer/phone/tablet or even different connection (eg work/school/friends).

    In the old days of 2.5 it was rugged... good times.

    Ok I'm bored in work.... so even though the beta just has generic ship stats (which work for a few ships of ours) I thought it would be fun to trow some ideas around with what we think the avenger could have. Due to its size its got to have lumbering, being a crown unit Lionhearted crew & vet Engineers are given, so is ACE pilots, turn limit 2 (BR) & 1 (Crippled) SRS capacity 20 (BR) & 10 (Crippled) Stats I'd guess Movement 7 & 6, 7 & 6, Armour 7, Hull 10 & 8, Citadel 10, defence 8/9 & 5/5 , Fray I would keep at 12... weapons Broadside plus gun batter P &S, Heavy Torpedo Salvo x2 - F

    Warcradle Studios announces the upcoming release of “Bill & Ted’s Riff in Time” board game. We at Warcradle Studios are incredibly excited to announce that we are developing an official board game based off of the “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure” film franchise in partnership with Creative Licensing. This new adventure is titled Bill & Ted’s Riff in Time. It will follow the iconic duo as they set off on another triumphant quest through time after the events of “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.” Meeting old friends and a whole bunch of new ones, Bill, Ted, Elizabeth, Joanna and Rufus must work together to put things right and ensure the future is most excellent! Whether you are a seasoned veteran board game player or a newcomer, Bill & Ted’s Riff in Time brings together a mix of awesomely detailed miniatures plus engaging and intuitive rules to ensure a bodacious time for players of all ages. Players will take a nostalgic trip to 1990’s San Dimas and of course to time periods such as the Wild West, Napoleonic France, Ancient Greece and many more. There’s lots of work going on to make the Bill & Ted’s Riff in Time board game really special, but as a taste of things to come, we are proud to present Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted Theodore Logan in all their triumphant miniature glory. We’ll be showing off the rest of the "Wyld Stallyns" alongside other iconic characters soon, as well as plenty of information on the game itself.

    Model availability

    I've got another question about the available models: There's two types of Terquai torpedo cruisers (the old and new one) and only the old type of Dindrenzi gunship available. Is that a labelling mistake and they're supposed to be Aruals and Spathas instead? Because if yes I might have to spend some money.

    I agree with RuleBritannia also. They need to fix WWX first and release missing models, Also make system faster as there rules are better but slower games and harder to get new players to enter. I have a miniature store in Australia and we have about 16 new players over last month. But people finding much harder then GW Kill Team and Malifaux skirmish games. I been a collector since Outlaw release with Kickstart in 2012/2013. I am trying to build a larger community here as I now have an Australia distributor. Make a second system like PP done with Warmachine and hordes is not the answer. Make rules smoother games faster and grow the player bases. We are working on Reference sheets and clearing up rule issues we have found this past month. I will be posing some stuff over the coming months on the forums to help grow my WWX local community here.

    Warcradle Classics?

    Hi admirals!, I play Firestorm Armada, but I am very interested in this fascinating game. I love his aesthetic and background, and I want to acquire one fleet (at least). My questions are: Will Warcradle make all the classics? Many ships are missing now and it is impossible to get a good fleet. Unless the second hand market. Is it proper to wait to the new ships? I am expectant to the new rules, but the 2.5 rules are so interesting. If I decide to play the 2.5, will be better the classic ships (because of their stats)? Waiting for your help.

    Model availability

    It would be good to have some news. I am waiting for the stock of some Soylian ships (usually, I only buy items if they are in stock). But, most important for me is to know if some ships that I want, like the Dindrenzi Praetorian battleship, Sorylian Harvester Warwolf gunship, etc. will be available. If I can wait, or I try to find them in other ways. And my beloved Tarakians! Warcradle: Will you realise them? Waiting for news!!! Edited - Sorylian Warwolf gunship I wanted to write.

    RSN fleet

    Carrier Destroyers Group The Fighters and bombers will be deployed soon. Wouldn't mind some more Cruisers or a second battleship, but we will see that WC have in store. Apologies for some shot being blurry, settings correct on camera, just didn't want to focus. Looking to get a photo booth thing soon for future FSA projects as I have a lot of them coming.
