    So it wasn't really General Oni. It was the old man who looks after the old abandoned lighthouse.

    No that is something for our timeline not the DW timeline. In DW that would result in war with the FSA.

    In French(Canadian) , tank and car are the same word (char).
    Could be the Poles be attempting to confuse their enemies through misleading nomenclature . Like how the word tank for armoured fighting vehicle came about.

    Ha, I was about to point out Matt Ward and his horribly inconsistent and juvenile fluff writing.
    I prefer Spartans fluff overall, there's at best a handful of inconsistencies, inconsequential at best unless you're nitpicking. It helps that it looks like there's only one person helming the fluff writing, which makes fluff more consistent overall, and the fluff here is fluid, campaigns matter in the Dystopian universe.
    There's also amusing ones like Time-Travelling Tesla. (Hey, with technology like the Time Dilation Orb, who knows?!)
    That said, I do have some issues with the fluff. Like Her Divine Empress and her silly flame spewing dragon hat with the mini glowing bits, that hat is far too silly, please change it to something more dignified. Also the Yurgi Destroyer, I will point this out over and over again that Yurgi is not a Japanese word, he's a sneaky Russian.
    But yes, back to the thread. The Poles, I am excite for tomorrow. Trying to convince the local Russian player to grab that box.

    I like to add
    FSA and KoB are considered long gamers. In my experience is they like the games that go longer cause they last longer. FSA can hurt from farther away and just sit back shoot and are harder to hurt. KoB can survive easier with shields all over and can also have weapons that never reduce due to damage.
    PE are short gamers. They blow their load and are done. This is my experience from them boarding. As a shooting and duking fleet, which I add is not what they are designed for, they are moderately effective.
    RoF and RC want to get in your face and punch you below the belt. Lots of dice once they are spitting distance. Not to mention good armor. And RC case, darn near impossible to sink sometimes.
    CoA and EoBS are fluid factions. Good all around. CoA case as mentioned is handicapped in boarding. But between abilities and mars and stats. These factions are fluid and can face any faction effectively if you know what to do.

    Yes, the halving is only on the AD involved not the number of AP in danger so all AP are also in danger to the same degree regardless of how many dice are rolled.
     
    Edit:
    AA is a weapon and during the turn of a collision ALL weaponry AD from involved vessels is also halved.

    There will also a few key things in an air war vs. the Blazing Sun, the sheer amount of incendiary rockets the Blazing Sun has, and with the Onryo attached to Inaris, Incendiary Turrets.  Being able to deny your opponents the ability to stay Obscured is powerful. Fighting the Altitude skimmed gyros also proves very annoying according to the people I fight regularly.

    I'd still say France comes first, but with the Blazing Sun coming a very close second.

    Boxes are better because my God boxes are so much easier to do stuff with than blisters.
     
    When I buy an entire fleet and stuff them inside my bag so I can take them home and prance un-naturally over the precious, precious resin, I much prefer it if I don't have spiky bits of plastic sticking in my back! Besides, a wall of grey doesn't exactly ram home just how pretty the Dystopian Wars models are, a wall of boxes covered in nice clean photos of lovely painted ships might as well grab me my the labels and mug me for all my money.
