    Warcradle Studios Salute 2019 Round-up!

    I don't like what they did to the Colonel MacDonald to turn him into the diseased 130 year old Benedict Arnold. Why does the techno snake ned an african woman in a cage as a handmaid? That seems a brave choice. I'm curious about the medics healing science gun.

    They look hauntingly familiar, though it might be the goa'uld colour scheme.

    New profiles for Dystopian Legion Troops in LWX?

    To be brutally honest I hate the videos. as a way of taking in information. It takes ages to understand anything, things are rather vague and changeable and as a style they don't appeal to me. I am therefore running off blogs and second hand accounts and stuff mentioned earlier. If you have the enthusiasm to clarify how it works that would be great.

    New profiles for Dystopian Legion Troops in LWX?

    I would prefer a squad based game that is a level up from WWX, allowing interplay of models, but something that is a bit more unique in focus, allowing a closer to Legions feel but including some of the WWX synergy stuff. I miss the unit activation style and fancy dice ideas from legions, being one of the dozen or so that liked that game, but have some expanded forces or options would tempt me.

    Not scale in terms of model size but rules wise. Larger detachments with commanders not just sone angry dude blasting away at each other.

    I thought it was going to be a different larger scale system?

    The Lost World - In Defence of Antarctica

    I've seen some more information from a chat Stuart had online. Again hearsay and not written down and therefore lacking some clarity, but it seems to suggest that the Covenant in Antarctica are defending the place. I mean that's better that they exist, but not clarified in the pitch post, and doesn't stop the presence of better developed fauna and flora mystery on Hooke's reach without having everything suddenly and weirdly mega evolving.

    The Lost World - In Defence of Antarctica

    The problem I have Hannibal is that this makes it less important. It becomes a wasteland to be fought over rather than the base of operations, scientific wonderland and Academic Utopia of Sturgeon's vision of the Covenant. You can make Hooke's reach the Wasteland and keep Sturgeon's dream alive. I want to see the setting being expanded rather shrunk in it's vision. Also makes it easier to explain where all the weirdness comes from its a lost island rather than suddenly appearing.
  9. Dear all, I really like a lot of the sound of the Lost worlds game. It brings back a lot of cool look and feel Dystopian Legions in an interesting setting. However, I write in defence of Antarctica and ask Warcradle to shift the Lost World expansion from the continent to the much cooler (haha) setting of Hooke's Reach from the Pacific Cyclone. Hooke's Reach is a mysterious island that appeared as the war began., covered in ancient technology, weird confusing terrain . This means no need at all to change the background material of all 8 great power blocs getting involved, or the flora and fauna. However, what it does allow is the development of Sturgeon's nation of Antarctica to act as a counterbalance and independent power that contrasts the rapacious and warlike other powers and in particular a foil to Carpathian's Science as a corrupting form of power to say that science is a tool, and can be used to help mankind, and that it is mankind's folly not the corruption of being a scientist. Light and shade. Also the Covenant in Antarctica has some really cool stuff like underground cities, egalitarianism, spies and awesome commandos that contrast nicely to Carpathian's cruder methods.

    A Spartan Video on how to play V3.0 when the rules are set

    Just feel sorry for DWars land fans and UCS fans who had their hopes raised with art but are going to be a bit of a way off. I wouldn't rush out and get anything sorted just yet. The DWars Beta still needs to get units differentiation sorted, legacy stats for existing models, actual models in a shape they are happy to release, fluff that is acceptable top both DWars and WWX, Army building tested, convince us about proprietary dice. Firestorm also has the added problem that WC want to do something radical by adding in some gravity and 3D mechanics that would mean more than polishing or simplifying Spartan's rules set ala DWars.

    Re-stat/houserule candidates

    I really, really like the sound of that. Good way to differentiate fleets and weapon systems.

    Re-stat/houserule candidates

    I think the three dice colours is a pretty elegant solution, simpler in the long run than WC's proprietary dice that just seems so confusing to me for DWars so far, in that you don't have the same aim (ie high good) and lose the exploding fun on the defensive. Hopefully it will grow on me, but that flexibility of to hit values, and other ways of limiting defensive dice or weapon effectiveness without needing to buy new dice or having to work out in my head what it means is useful now I am getting old.

    SPOILER ALERT! #2

    Did he do a wicked olly straight into some gnarly kick flips before being knocked over by a tank?

    SPOILER ALERT! #2

    Can I just say it looks like the poor chap is in pain after he fell off his alien blood powered skateboard. Its all right having knee pads and elbow pads, but if you aren't going to wear a proper helmet its still very dangerous!

    Model availability

    Metal bits is promising. I would love a bits service of some of the old fashioned turrets, would improve various models.
