    Warcradle - Limited Print/manufacture runs?

    It is sad to hear that the molds were treated so poorly and that you having to deal with this many problems. I would rather have a well designed product of high quality than a poorly designed cheap produbt that is made just to have something to sell. I wish you the best of luck and I will try to wait patiently. Emphasis on the try.

    New Q&A Announced: June 22nd!

    Since the Q and A was cancelled and I didn't see any update as to when it may be rescheduled is it possible to have a list of any big announcements you were going to make? Obviously you can't list everything you were going to announce or all the questions you were going to answer. Just looking for any big announcements like date for open beta, any new models, or insight to the new dystopuan age rules.

    New Q&A Announced: June 22nd!

    The Q and A was cancelled. It would have been nice if you posted an update here and also post a link to it if it becomes available.

    Warcradle classic Dystopian age releases wishlist

    I would love to see the models that were in the STO and Canadian forces preorders that were never made. I know quite a few people, myself included, missed out on our preorders. The models looked good and added some cool options. Other than that I have all the Prussian models except for most of the armored units. Kickstarter models would be great to bring back as well since a lot people either didn't support it or never got their models from the kickstarter.

    Prussian Imperium future

    So, basically when I build my list and I take a battleship I choose the upgrades I want on it. Depending on the weapons I choose I will use the older models I have to represent it and use the old name for that particular model. For example,, if I take a battleship and give it turrets and Tesla broadsides I can say it is an Emperor even though rules wise it is still an Elector class battleship. I have way too many older models to replace them. If I like the new models I will get some and add to my collection. I really do like the idea of simplifying the battleships down to just the Elector and having all the options available for it. Will you be doing a similar thing with cruisers? We do have a few of them to choose from.

    I like it. That makes it very simple for list building while making everything viable and still leaving a variety of options to choose from. The real question is will be able to fit one of every option in my force so I can use all of my Battleships. Can't wait to see the open beta. How modular are the Prussians going to be? Are we going to have a ton of extra parts for each hull we buy?

    It does show three hard points. One says secondary weapon and I have no idea what kind of weapon that will have. If they did combine the Enperor, Eider and Elector into one entry they could make it work. However, if they make the Emporer, Eider and Elector separate entries then it will be a lot more difficult. I just don't want to see the older models and class of ships get out shined by the new ones. I wonder if the Elector has the big cannon to be the equivalent of the Gustav since it was a kickstarter item and a lot of people might not have it.

    Prussian Imperium future

    During the new Q and A WC showed some new concept art one of them being a new Battleship class for us called the Elector. It looks like it is going to be another modular Battleship ship. The concept art shows the options of turrets or a cannon that looks a lot like the cannon on the Gustav. The shape of the hull does look like the basic shape of Prussian ships and has a nice sleek design. The bridge however, does not. I don't like the bridge sitting so high up. In my opinion it ruins the sleek design of the ship and is sitting exposed like a giant target for the enemy to shoot. I do like the idea of having some modular ships. I hope they don't decide to make everything in the Prussian Navy modular. Do we need another class of Battleship? Having 3 different classes of Battleships and 2 of them being modular means we effectively have 5 Battleship options, not counting the Kaiser Karl Heavy Battleship. For all of the options to be viable they would all have to be as effective but different from each other. Unless their intention is to add more modules to the Elector later on and basically replace the Eider and Emperor Battelships completely. What are your thoughts on this new class of Battleship and modular design?
  9. Glad to see you guys are back working on the game. Can't wait for beta testing to see how the new edition will work.

    Carriers and TFTs in 3rd Edition

    Hypothetically, if a carrier has the ability to launch multiple squadrons of TFT during its activation can they be assigned different roles or would they all have to do the same role? Would roles be along the lines of bombers attacking surface ships, torpedo bombers attacking submerged ships, fighters attacking other TFT and/or other fliers, and setting then set up to defend against a TFT attack similar to a CAP? I guess it is safe to say that ack ack should still exist in 3.0. That would mean to defend against TFT on an attack run you would get ack ack, hopefully, and you can damage the carrier. If damaging the carrier limits it's ability to launch TFT. So, a big factor in being able to reach a carrier to damage it would be the range of the TFT attack run and if line of sight from the carrier is required. It would make sense to be able to use spotters to target squadrons with TFT, but that also means it would be easier to hide and protect the carrier. That would help make carriers very competitive, but at the same time still take away activation spam. I guess it also depends on how effective the attack runs of TFT are. I think it sounds very interesting and look forward to seeing the full rules for carriers and TFT.

    Carriers and TFTs in 3rd Edition

    I believe one of the goals of 3.0 is to speed the up the game. This can be done in a couple of ways. Make each turn take less time and/or make the game last fewer turns. I don't know what route War cradle will take. I do like having more turns. That would require each turn to go faster. To make the turn go faster may require simplification of the rules which can be over simplified making the game less appealing due to less tactical choices and more just driving strait across the table shooting at each other. If they do simplify the rules I hope they don't over signify the rules.

    Carriers and TFTs in 3rd Edition

    So this is very similar to the fleet action rules where the fliers were treated like firing a weapon. The number of "shots" depends on the carrier. Then you choose how to use them. As a fighter or bomber which determined what rules it had and what it was effective against. I think it has its pros and cons. Depending on the range it can make it very difficult to keep a carrier alive long enough to get much use out of it. It also can make destroying the carrier the only way to counter a carrier. Need to see the full rules to get a better understanding on how to use them.

    Awesome. Thanks. Seems you are doing what you can to keep the old models in the game while coming out with new ones. If you maintain the quality and aesthetics I will definitely be buying some new models for my Prussians. I would really like to see something from the new Prussian fleet other than the Ice Maiden. Some of the 3D renders from other fleets have shown some changes to the design of the ships. I would like to see what changes they will make to the Prussian fleet. Again this is me being impatient and not waiting for things to be released.

    When I bought the box that came with the 2 Metzgers they were on a base chest high in the water already. It is a different model from the land variant. They wouldn't have to change the scale at all if they kept the 2 models. Besides even if the scale did change as long as the base was the same size I would still use the ones I have instead of the new ones. I would be fine with having rules for the Metzger in naval games and Warcradle not even releasing new models. I just want to use the toys I already have. Ideally they would have rules and new models for both Dystopian wars and Armored clash so people who don't have them can buy them for either game. As for the holchmeister, that can be for land and naval as well. Will that be part of Dystopian wars 3.0 or will it be limited to Armored clash only? The question is will models like the Metzger or similar models be used on both Dystopian wars and Armored clash? This is really a question for War cradle unless this information has already been released.
