    Averlorn reacted to McKinstry in Official Thread: Ottoman Empire   
    The overwhelming general consensus as expressed loudly and often on this forum was that the 1.1 Ottomans were seriously unbalanced and too strong. They were inevitably going to get dialed back from the second 2.0 was announced.
     
    Does that mean the existing stats are inviolate? No. As Delboy and Bunnahabin have stated often, play games (lots of them), write battle reports and they will take it under advisement.
     
    Theory craft alone without games and reporting and it probably will not change.
     
    I saw some battle reports being posted on the Chinese armoured DN. That may well bring a change or two with enough games and enough reports.

    All Beta testers are reminded that they should not discuss the second edition of Dystopian Wars outside the Beta Test section.
     
    Delboy and the other senior testers should begin to comment on the second edition in this thread at an appropriate point.
     
     
    However, I will repeat our first design goal for Second Edition:
    No DW Model in any collection will be invalidated by the Second Edition. They will all be fully supported in your force guides and in the rules.

    By the way Spartan is always giving you something else to buy. That is their diabolical plan. They don't force you to buy it. They just let human psychology do its work for them.

    Hello All!
     
    I'm Delboy, the Senior [senior] Playtester/Designer for the Dystopian Wars Game at present.
    .....no jokes about my age please......  

    Quite a few members have asked if it is possible to have us (ie the testers) comment on vessels that we have designed and tested.

    Its a good idea, but as with anything that is governed by the legality of our Non-Disclosure Agreements, I think its sensible to lay down a few ground rules. This should allow everyone to focus their questions into ones we CAN answer and help remind everyone covered by their personal NDAs where the line is drawn.

    Remember Spartan have final say on any copy/comment NDA'd members post, so if this thread gets out of hand they are entitled to shut it down and take action against any NDA'd person who steps over the line.


    We CAN talk about :
    1 - How the model plays and our experiences during the stages of playtesting.
    2 - The concept of a model's use on the tabletop and possible game tactics.
    3 - Synergy with existing models.
    4 - Models that are headlined in the Spartan Blog or if clearance is given to the Tester to comment by Spartan.


    Remember we ain't here to steal Spartan's Thunder, only to tell everyone how loud it is!

    Also, folks should realise that the playtesters do not WORK for Spartan, and present their thoughts as un-paid, private individuals who have a vested emotional involvement with the D-Wars Game. That said, they are protected by Spartan from any aggressive, overly negative posters who may see this as an opportunity to make themselves heard. If everyone remains focused and adult during the thread, follows the rules of the forum and directs their comment in a mature non-accusatory fashion, there will be no problems.

    So given these criteria, here are my mutterings about.......

    Thanks.
     
    The Hisar is a mobile airfield, not a fleet carrier. This is a huge difference, since it is more a little downgraded dreadnought with an airfield welded onto it, than a ship dedicated to carrying airplanes around.
     
    It is a huge asset to my fleet. Adding 12 TFT's to my fleet, it usually gains me aerial superiority and more activations than my opponent, especially if taken together with Sinop class armoured cruisers and Kanuni class dreadnought. In the game against CoA on the pictures above, the scenario did not allow the two free local air support wings, therefore, my opponent was limited to his 6 drones from the Epicurus. I had 23 tokens.
     
    The Hisar can hit the enemy hard even in RB4 (not possible in this scenario) with its two bombards and the turrets. If it gets some targets into its side firing arcs, together with its escorts it can really wreak havoc among the enemy fleet, and it can keep rearming and reorganizing the TFT wings at the same time! I learnt to use it to reorganize my wings effectively, usually I land the two 3-strong wings from Sinops on it in turn one, preferably before the Hisar gets activated, so that I can have a full wing out as CAP or another full dive bombers wing ready to move in turn 2. It can send out two wings per turn and still use its generators and weapons.
     
    The Hisar is also a key element for the effective use of the Cekirge mines, since its Mine Controller Generator's range is 24", as opposed to the Sadrazam's 16". I actually took a Hisar in an 800 points game instead of a Sadrazam. My 4 dive bomber wings sunk a damaged battleship and an intact cruiser.The ability to control the mines should not be underestimated by the opponent, since they can blast away ships, flyers and TFT's together and they are kind of a free attack during movement.
     
    The Hisar with its 3 escorts can also be an effective boarding unit. 12 AP together, in groups of 6,2,2 and 2. The Hisar's AP get +1 to hit. It has Sharpshooters. The Ottomans actively assaulting anyone and winning? How is that possible?  Combine the assault with Fettah and Sinop squadrons using their own sharpshooters and enjoy the look on your opponent's face as you prize their battleship or dreadnought.
     
    In short, I love the Hisar.

    Hello everyone, 
     
    having almost finished my FSA fleet (naval and aerial) I decided to start a new fleet. My choice soon fell on the Covenant of Antarctica.
     
    After two sessions of about 2 hours each I managed to paint 3 Cruisers and 6 corvettes. I'm quite happy with the way the models turned out, epecially because I only painted them at gaming standard (although I think they still look a little bit dirty)
     
    Enjoy the pictures. Comments (positive and negatives) are, as usual always welcome:
     
     
    Edit 10.08.13: Some new pics, i.e. the one of the Fresnel, finished Platon and last but not least my TFT and my Aronnax. Enjoy it!
