    The Battle of Angra Pequena

    A fantastic Battle Report and wonderful narrative to go alongside it! Cheers, Spartan Giles.

    Scope for a Dystopian Wars 3.0?

    Apologies. I didn't have a huge amount of time. I'm not going to comment on rules speculations at this stage, but hopefully the player base will enjoy the series of blogs we have started, these will address some of the questions people have in terms of setting development and what's upcoming for Dystopian Wars.

    The final alliance ORBAT updates.

    We have the final edits made to the Indian Raj, Dominion and Canada and the Operational Assets completed. Just waiting for the ORBATs to be processed, and checked before they are uploaded - and I don't have a timeframe on that yet sorry! The TO are a different kettle of fish, we will be making adjustments to that ORBAT in due course, but there are a few pieces we need to finalise first, including a general look at the Armoured forces. Cheers, Spartan Giles.

    New release - Battle for Iceland

    I can't say for certain as I am not in charge of such things. But I would imagine that yes, the PDF will be available at some point - Spartan has done this so far with all their games (bar Halo). I'm sure Taskforce will also. We are working on the stats for the core nations, we hope a good chunk will be available early, and we'll power through the rest as we are able. Fleet Action is aimed at being a fast playing game in the same vein as Taskforce, that gives a solid feel of Dystopian Wars but can be played much quicker. I can't answer this question at this stage. They will be similar to Taskforce, but DW is also a different beast.

    Latest Dystopian wars Blog

    Hmm, some good guesses here... if I was a betting man... All I can say is that is not the ORBATs as we are rolling those out along with their respective backgrounds as we feel they are ready.

    Spotting from Obscured or Stratospheric?

    Ha - no, a model can't spot through terrain, even with sturginium binoculars.
  8. S.Giles

    Spotting from Obscured or Stratospheric?

    Correct. A model may spot from any height band, as long as it has the Spotter MAR, and as the target of the spotting action is both in range and in LOS. Partial and obstructed are irrelevant to spotting.

    V2 RULES QUESTIONS

    I would follow the guidelines for SAW:
  10. S.Giles

    V2 RULES QUESTIONS

    Infantry should be kept together on the table. All measurements for range are made from the formation, damage is applied to the formation. For game purposes, each base (company) that makes up the formation should be kept together.

    Official Thread: League Of Italian States

    Minerva should have Inventive Scientists - I will have it reposted as soon as I can.

    Non core nation PDF's

    Great work on listing all the changes guys. You do the community a great service.
  13. S.Giles

    Non core nation PDF's

    Yes - that's an error. It should have Inventive Scientists. I will change that asap.
