New league starting in DC area!

Recommended Posts

We'll be playing at Dream Wizards, just off Rockville Pike (near White Flint Mall), in a format much like PP's Journeyman League. So your fleet grows as the weeks go by, and there will be special upgrades for certain goals.

For those who are really ready to put the STEAM into Steampunk.....

Fleet Construction for DW Ensign's League

Start value: 1,000

- not more than 2 Massive or Large (No DNs and not more than one carrier.)

- at least 2 Medium and/or Medium Capital squadrons

- at least 2 Small squadrons

Flyers are okay (≤40%), but.... CORE is Naval. We will be using Local Support SAS and TAC cards.

The first week, of six, will be the first Wednesday after the NOVA OPEN (Labor Day Weekend). As soon as you've signed up you can begin painting towards the Shipwright's Prize (once per game Command Check reroll) awarded to fully painted fleets. Other special buffs and bonuses to follow. If you want to learn the game before we begin just ask for a demo game. Plenty of semi-vaguely, almost, sort of experienced players around!

Fleets will go to 1,250 points (or less) on week 3 and 1,250 to 1,500 on week 5. Dreadnoughts become available in games of at least 1,250 points.

Do you have take a separate power- ( The RoF are my favorite)?

Anyway, I could do this. A bit of a drive from Fredericksburg. But I would just adjust hours for that Wednesday and leave from work.

Really like the French but if I can't it would have to be the FSA.

Just packing up from GenCon. Lots of Firestorm Armada but not so much DW. Four events, one with no- shows and the rest were demo games (though they were not supposed to be.)

I will send i my fleet tomorrow.

The League will be starting the week after the soft cover rules become available. (approximately Sept. 24th for the release)  It's a shame we have to delay that long.  But of the six interested regulars at Dream Wizards only two of us own rules books.

 

We will be playing plenty of Demo games before that point.  So if you are in the area and interested in a demo game some Wednesday night just PM me.  I've plenty of fleets you can try.  Because Faction ADD is a good thing. :)

The soft cover rules are out. So, standing by for whenever you are ready.

I am involved in birthday weekend, but should have a 1,000 pt fleet ready by Tuesday.

I can do either an FSA or if diversity is needed LoIS, vice RoF.

How many more are you expecting? I have A large force of FSA, that's about 80% complete on painting. Rest should be done by then. Also have the Australian box, and am waiting on some KOB models to arrive. Also there is an Ottoman player and Italian that could be keen on making in up. Should a list from each be posted here?

Still a good ways off from game day, but keep me posted. Looking forward to meeting some more players.

We should have aprox. 6 +/- from the usual suspects at Dream Wizards. So, the more, the merrier. It will be great to see as many factions as possible.

Go ahead and post your proposed list. I won't be holding anyone to pre-start lists. Even with our long lead time I know so models might not arrive when expected. Besides, it's fun to see how folks look at their fleets under the restrictions given.

I'm glad we've got some excitement building.  :wub:

 

But we've got almost a month till the softcover releases.  SO GET PAINTING!  :D

San, I think the rules are out, despite what the pre-order page says. they show up under 

  Home > Dystopian Wars > Books & Gaming Aids > 

and the text says:

 

The Dystopian Wars 2.0 'Admiral Edition' Rulebook heralds major enhancements to our highly successful Victorian Super Science Fiction game.

Delivered in a softback finish, this full colour is designed for gamers to slip into their gaming bags, giving them easy access to the core rule engine. Its contents include:

-Brand New Book Design & Layout

-Improved Core engine

-Enhanced Force and Deployment rules

-Ability to play larger games

-Diagrams and examples

-Packed Full of colour photographs

-Streamlined mechanics designed to speed up game play

A must buy for all Dystopian Wars Commanders!

This book is ready to ship now. So grab your copy.

​Now when your FLGS can get it is different matter.

If that is a problem a combined order from Spartan will get around the shipping costs, but you not get the discount most shops give.
