November Warcradle Releases 2021

Dystopian Wars

This month there are three exciting new releases for Dystopian Wars. The Crown and The Empire have two new forces incoming, the Victory Battlefleet Set and the Tianlong Battlefleet Set, as well as the Enlightened Support Squadrons.

Dystopian Wars November Releases

Victory Battlefleet Set

Following the release of the Britannia Battlefleet Set in late August of this year, The Crown has launched back into action with the brand new Victory Battlefleet Set. 

Victory Battlefleet Miniatures

For the last three decades, the Victory class Heavy Carriers have been a dominating force around the globe. They demonstrate the huge significance that naval strength plays in all Crown military campaigns.

As an island nation, the British consider the seas and oceans of the world as essential to hold their Dominions together. The Victory and her aircraft ensure that remains so.

With an internal hanger that is rivalled only by the experimental Ice Maiden of the Imperium, A Victory can launch dozens of Defiant fighters into the skies to defend the fleet from incoming bombers or to hammer the decks of her enemies with their rapid firing Vickers Automatic Guns.


Tianlong Battlefleet Set

The newest addition to The Empire is the Tianlong Battlefleet Set. If you’re looking to start an Empire force, or add to one, then this set is a battlefleet to be excited for! 


The Tianlong Draconic Colossus uses a combination of rotor engines and repulsion fields to remain aloft. Originally created to patrol the airspace near the Zhanmadao Sky Fortresses and Ziwei Sky Bastions, the Tianlong swoop down, their skilled crews getting the most out of these marvels of Engineering.

The Tianlong can be outfitted with different weapons located in the mouth and tail. The choice of the Heavy Huoqiang or the Heat Lancette is a difficult one for most Captains to make. The Heavy gun battery can also be removed in favour of additional crew space to house a squadron of Bushi Ryu. These highly trained Samurai use rocket propelled armour to descend to assault enemy vessels in hand to hand combat.

There are occasions when squadrons of Tianlong are sent on strike missions, if so they are often supported on the sea by Gong destroyers. These fast, but well armed vessels are ideal for long range, fast attacks, complimenting the Draconic Colossi well.


Enlightened Support Squadron

Calling all reinforcements! The Enlightened are getting their own Support Squadron, featuring the support ships seen in the Hypatia Battlefleet Set and Hunt for the Prometheus Two Player Starter Set. 

Enlightened Support Squadron

The support ships that escort the Flagship vessels of the Enlightened Fleets fill some very specialist roles.

The Plinius Support Carrier carries dozens of Scythe Drones and can launch them from hydraulic ramps. This allows the Plinius to partially submerge when the ramps are closed making it very difficult to see and target.

Built around the same hull as the Plinius are a number of other Cruisers. The Quintilian bombardment cruiser mounts heavy rockets that it can launch at distant targets before returning below the waves.

While these Cruisers are able to lurk just below the surface the Diogenese and Praxilla Class Submarines are able to operate at significant depths. These large Automata operate under a number of pre-programmed subroutines and are effective at hunting down and destroying enemy vessels.


Wild West Exodus

This November, Wild West Exodus also has two new releases; the 3rd Edition Rules and Gubbins Set as well as the Iron Horse.

Third Edition Rules and Gubbins Set

Wild West Exodus has just entered its 3rd Edition, and you can bring your games up to speed with the 3rd Edition Rules and Gubbins Set this November. With everything needed to play, this set includes the 3rd Edition rulebook, Action and Adventure Card Deck, Dice and much more. 

Third edition rules and Gubbins set

Wild West Exodus is a dynamic, fast-paced tabletop miniatures game pitting a cast of heroic characters against each other in a brutal world - very much a twisted reflection of our own. In the twilight years of the Nineteenth Century, mankind is perched upon a new age of discovery and enlightenment.

The Wild West Exodus Rules & Gubbins Set contains all the tools you need to play. Just grab this box and your favourite Posse (or two) and you are ready to start clashing against your opponents in the West.


Wild West Iron Horses

Seen in the recent new two player starter set; Showdown at Retribution, the Wild West Iron Horses will be available to pre-order in it’s own boxed set. With two build options and five faction riders available, this will be a great addition to most forces.

Wild West Iron Horses

Since Armstrong Custer’s famous charge leading the Michigan Wolverine’s at Gettysburg, the Iron Horse has become a ubiquitous machine across the frontier. Their combination of speed, firepower and durability led to a massive Union contract with the Covenant of the Enlightened during the Ore War, replacing flesh and blood horses in all cavalry regiments.

Now more than a decade later, Iron Horses have become easy to obtain, with Union surplus and frontline shipments making their way onto the black market in vast numbers and the machinery itself proving to be simple to maintain with spare-parts in abundance. While older marks and models of Iron Horse prove to be a little on the temperamental side, the Iron Horse’s popularity and variety of designs can be found in use across the Union and beyond.

Uniquely found in the Union arsenal, the Iron Eagle is seen by many as the pinnacle of technological evolution for the Iron Horse.More than the replacement of the RJ engine with a voltaic power plant, the Iron Eagle boasts additional armor and electro-weaponry. As the ultimate statement that the Iron Eagle represented the future of Union military prowess, Nikolai Tesla incorporated specially programmed UR-31E Automata to pilot these new machines, giving them a resilience unmatched in the field by other cavalry. 


Warcradle Scenics

Lastly we have, from Warcradle Scenics, the Promethean Complex Set. This terrain-based set presents a secret scientific setting to the tabletop, compatible with Wild West Exodus, Warhammer 40K, Infinity and more. 

Promethean complex set

The Peers of the Covenant of the Enlightened often perform elaborate and sometimes dangerous experiments using the most powerful technologies known to humanity. 

In order to ensure that they have all the assets required for such work they typically create labyrinthine and eccentric laboratories for themselves.  It is not without some irony that these sprawling structures have been collectively named Promethean Complexes.


More often than not, in order to contain explosions and noise as well as retaining complete anonymity and secrecy, they build on existing mineworks or new excavations to be contained largely underground, with esoteric and blunt looking iron and steel structures jutting out across the surface forming into a small estate or settlement.
