    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....

    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.

    Hello There. New in Here. I am a Spanish Admiral of the glorious Terran Alliance. This message has two purposes: Introduce myself and warning you that Wayland has recently added a bunch of ships of several core races. For instance, the Terran Alliance ships are almost all of them for purchasing. Hope this game won't die. I really love it.

    The Beta Lives!

    EXCITEMENT! Darn I like those Relthoza designs! Though I kind of hope they don't got for the last one - I like the idea of a huge ship with spider-web like linkages, but the sane part of me thinks that it would be a nightmare to cast. Super thin parts that will be susceptible to snapping when just cleaning mould lines off. But still looks really cool and the basic concept of the ship designs is creative and I think brings out more of their spider influence. For all the greatness of the Spartan designs they never really said "spiderships made by superspiders" in the same way as their ground models did for Planetfall; which I think captured their designs far better as a species.

    A report to keep the Seas alive

    A brief report from a club game The Orcs brought out their core fleet with extra destroyers, an assault cruiser and some spare bodged cruisers. The Shroud Mages brought assault destroyers, frigates, cruisers, heavy cruisers and there shiny new Beast of a flagship. The sides engaged with the orcs denying one flank and piling it on - taking first blood by sinking Shroud Mage Frigates Sadly the new flagship was shattered. However the Orcish fleet pretty much has gone for ad hoc submersible training Image shows just before the Orcish Health and Safety failures on the concept of magazines with closed doors.

I think for someone to total it lower would be to value models as a hands unit, however, if that is done the models will not be holding the correct weapons since the Plainswalker Crossbow and Gatling Gun are both faction armory upgrades. There are three (of four) Warrior Nation hand options that can upgrade 1 weapon in the unit... two units that can upgrade 2 in the unit is at maxium which 3 models doesn't get close.]

    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?

    Not that quick, it turns out. Anyway, on to the Turmoils, DFC Bathornis-PI99 and DFC Illuyanka-S001 (as you can see I looked up the Directorate's naming conventions): Pictures are very blue this time, don't ask me why, I didn't do anything different. Next up: Well, the Anarchist, of course. Last ship from RotO that's still missing.

    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,

    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.

    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.

    Lord Nat that sounds a cool idea! Imagine just getting an article where the designer gushes about the new design and shows how she or he painted it. It would really start building some excitement. Delboy's threads as a designer were fantastic for that, talking about the model and rules development in tandem. I get its a big job, and I get that changing a system that people are passionate about builds a bit of negativity, but the best way to combat that fatigue and build positive energy is to get something to be positive about.

    Actually this is something that GW are getting right at the moment with the Sister of Battle release.... Its something that the community has been asking for so they announced it with a beta of the rules since then they have done a little article once a fortnight giving a dribble of information, some weeks its just a case of here we've painted this model look at how we've made the black look different .. but its something regular keeping people who have been looking forward to it hyped and not spending their hobby money else where (for the most part). Where as for DW I'm one of 3/4 people at my local club with fleet(s) and the only one whos taking ANY notice of whats going on, the thought is well theres no info so I'll carry on playing these other systems.

    I'm hoping this is the quiet before the storm - esp since Dropfleet/zone is going thruogh a big update and is basically the current biggest competitor for the space and ground market (after starwars in the space market though as that is pre-painted and star wars its in a league of its own really). I agree this first half a year has been rather quiet after we got quite a bit of news in the build up to last christmas. That said I hope its just Warcradle taking their time to get things right so that we get a really powerful successful launch! It's just in that ugly phase of development where there isn't much to reliably market nor talk about in the open.

    I like to believe that's a compliment, so thanks! Here, as promised, the Sulises: Not much to say: Today's Sulis is on the right, the other one has been finished for a few weeks already. New varnish actually helped evening out the models. Oannes coming up as soon as I get to it, so probably tomorrow. No promises, though.

    I just wanted to say hi. My friends and I recently went to UK Games Expo 2019 and came across Wild West Exodus. We've decided to give it a go, as it look like a lot of fun. Some of us had a demo game while the others watched. My faction will be Hex, though I'm still learning what I can at the moment (more game play may change my mind). Anyone who plays the game and is based in Cardiff, let me know, it would be good to meet others who play the game. Thanks. :)

    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!

    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.

    Model availability

    Is there a way to find out if additional models will become available in the future and if yes which ones specifically? Because there were quite a few models that I still wanted to get before they went OOP but didn't get around to it, and they're not available on Wayland, either (basically RSN Patrol Fleet and Dreadnought Box as well as a Dindrenzi gunship and one Aquan and Directorate escort carrier). I can go look on the secondary market but I'd rather buy them new. I also have an order of FSA models in limbo right now. It's been three to four weeks, now, so I'm starting to get worried that it somehow got lost at Warcradle. Does it always take that long (which would be alright with me, I've still got enough to paint) or should I open a ticket?

    Wild West Exodus: May Pre-orders

    Perfection Exists in Wild West Exodus It goes without saying that Elita Nura fights with passion against any foe - those who have been tainted by the Hex may get some special treatment though. Pre-order Elita Nura and her Portal Vanguard Posse from today! The other members of the Spica Astraea have been hand picked by Nura; Aeron Bran who ascended through the ranks of the Spica in just a few years, Janna Salto is a fellow devotee of portal technology and has been working alongside Nura for many years, and Venatici Helios is utterly devoted to Nura. Along with Noth and Khaatan, two of Makara’s skilled Cor Caroli, the Portal Vanguard Posse truly is a deadly Order posse to wield on the battlefield. Want to add a bit more bite to your Portal Vanguard Posse? You can order Legendary Elita Nura, available now, and have an even deadlier leader... Not interested in the perfect comprehension of the universe yet? We have new Enlightened and Watchers on pre-order now, with a release date of 25th May 2019. View the full article

    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

    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

    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!

    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.

    Model availability

    I asked my question above on a ticket with wayland - to which the answer was: 'those models were out of stock but available to order'. (Which, you'll note, doesn't answer the question at all) As with many of you above, a wait in itself isn't an issue for me, but the lack of clear communication (after taking our money no less) really is.

    Re-stat/houserule candidates

    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.
