March Releases: The Union are set to make quite the splash with The Enterprise

Recommended Posts

March looks to be an exciting month for fans of Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics with pre-orders aplenty!

The seas aren't calm for very long as the Enterprise Battlefleet Set is deployed by The Union, making quite the splash. A rising force in the Dystopian Age, the Japanese continue to grow their navy with more reinforcements in the form of Frontline Squadrons.

The Enlightened’s nefarious experiments culminate in the creation of a deadly invention this month, as the Sickle Gyro Cav is added to their arsenal in Wild West Exodus.

The town of Red Oak springs to life as its Saloon and Cathouse doors swing open once more, allowing players to bring the town to their tabletop in one great value set.

Make sure not to miss out on all of these exciting March releases, available to pre-order from the 25th February 2022.

Due to be released at the end of March 2022.

Warcradle Studios March Releases

Dystopian Wars

The Union launch the largest vessel in their naval register this month with the release of the Enterprise Battlefleet Set, cementing them as a power that is not to be taken lightly.

Not only that, following the release of the Kongo Battlefleet Set, the Japanese continue to expand their influence with the deployment of the Japanese Frontline Squadrons.

The Union's hard work has paid off as the Enterprise is ready to set sail for Dystopian Wars in the new Enterprise Battlefleet Set.

The Enterprise class is a formidable warship and the largest vessel in the Union naval register. Once dubbed the Great Experiment, the success of these vessels is beyond doubt.

Powered by three massive Paddlewheels, this mighty vessel retains some of the manoeuvrability of the smaller Union ships while still being able to keep the ship moving at an impressive speed for its size. The recent addition of launch cables allow for more rapid deployment of Corsairs, of which it carries ten squadrons. 

The Enterprise class Heavy Carriers also serve as mobile headquarters for Admirals and other high ranking military and civil individuals of note when the fleet operates far from home waters.

Alongside the frontline ships of the Union Navy, the Enterprise is rarely seen without a small flotilla of support vessels.

These ships are also able to provide field repairs to the RC-52 Patriot Automata. These towering simulacra are designed by the brilliant theoretical engineers at The Pipeworks, and are the largest automata in the Union’s military.

Just like smaller automata, over time their adaptive computations develop quirks that give veteran Automata distinctive personalities.

Japanese Frontline Squadrons

The Japanese face their competition head on as the Japanese Frontline Squadrons sail into action to escort the previously released Kongo Heavy Battleship.

Japanese Frontline Squadrons

The supporting cruisers that are assigned to Battlefleets through the forces of the Empire vary great. From the imposing Hokkaido Heavy Cruiser down to the nimble Kanagawa Monitor there is a cruiser variant for every mission.

Japanese Cruiser groups are typically accompanied by Chita Submersible Automata. These engineering wonders are the equal to the mechanical creations of the Covenant of the Enlightened and are used to protect the fleet from threats beneath the waves as well as assisting in assaults.ce aircraft that act as spotters and limited aerial defence. When needs must they can also perform bombing runs on enemy shipping but usually only when supported by other aerial units.

The Japanese favour Kyoto frigates when running their patrols between the far-flung islands of their homeland. The vessels are ideally suited for this task and for new sailors a year on a Kyoto is their first experience of the proud naval traditions of the Blazing Sun.


  • 2x Osaka Cruisers. Each Cruiser can alternatively be built as either Kanagawa, Hokkaido, Okinawa, Miyagi, Yamaguchi, Ishikawa or Honshu Cruiser

  • 4x Kyoto Frigates

  • 4x Chita Automata

Wild West Exodus

Not content with creating just the Mono and Strider-Cav, the Enlightened have much more to show for Wild West Exodus as their Cavs become airborne! Introducing the Sickle Gyro Cav.

Sickle Gyro Cav

The pursuit of science is a never-ending endeavour and the Covenant of the Enlightened will stop at nothing when developing their augmented army. It is from this pursuit the Sickle Gyro Cav is born.

The line between madness and genius is a fine one. Often an invention, thought outlandish and unusable, has subsequently become almost commonplace. 

There are always those looking to push boundaries further and be noticed in such a world where remarkable contraptions such as the Strider-Cav walk the earth. In the case of the Prussian scientist Ludwig Berblinger, it was the notion of ‘walking the earth’ that he sought to challenge.

Warcradle Scenics

The town of Red Oak is open to all those seeking refuge and entertainment with the money to pay for it.

Bring Red Oak to your tabletop with the Red Oak Town Set 1, which offers multiple of the original Red Oak terrain kits now available in colour, and in one great value set.

The town of Red Oak has seen more than its fair share of shootouts and gunfights. Its location in the Arizona territory seems to be within the reach of many of the varied groups who hope to gain some sway over the people of the West.

Various Outlaw gangs end up in town wanting to trade or spend their ill-gotten gains on whatever entertainment their minds can think up. The Cathouse and Saloon are usually the first place Outlaws (or anyone new in town for that matter) head to. Wyatt Earp passes through, sometimes dropping off his latest quarry in the Jail until they can be properly tried.

  • 1x Cat House

  • 1x Saloon

  • 1x Bridge
