September Releases: The Archimedes arrives to astonish!

Recommended Posts

With September almost upon us that can only mean one thing, more new releases for Dystopian Wars and Warcradle Scenics that will be available to pre-order soon.

The distinct whir of technology can be heard as the Enlightened power up the advanced weaponry found in the Archimedes Battlefleet Set. The marvels of the Enlightened are on full display as the Archimedes begins to impress, confuse and decimate.

Ready to take a ‘swing’ at the competition, the Commonwealth are employing the use of their own Vitruvian Colossi to ‘cut’ to the chase and assure victory with the Marena Battlefleet Set. Reinforcements inbound as the Scandinavian Frontline Squadrons offer any Ragnarok Battlefleet more firepower.

Available for the first time as individual terrain kits, the Red Oak Town Set 2 and Estun Village Sets offer you the perfect backdrop for any wargame.

Due to be released at the end of September 2022.

Warcradle Studios September Releases

Dystopian Wars

There’s lots of new pre-orders for Dystopian Wars this month as the Enlightened launch the Archimedes Battlefleet Set, the Marena provides exceptional power to the Commonwealth and the Scandinavian Frontline Squadrons enhance the Ragnarok Battlefleet.


Archimedes Battlefleet Set

Archimedes Battlefleet Set

Science marches onwards as the Archimedes gets ready to put on a show. This gigantic set showcases the latest advancements in technology with a wide array of impressive weaponry and serves as a perfect way to start an Enlightened fleet.

A flagship of the Enlightened fleet, Vault ships were conceived as massive floating platforms to deploy their larger engineering and scientific marvels. In this manner, the Archimedes class is usually fitted with either a Callimachus Chrono-Lathe or Diophantus Chaos-Orb, both so intricate and sophisticated in their crafting that like much that is not understood in the Dystopian Age, they are considered magical by the uneducated.

This box contains:

  • 1 x Archimedes Vault Ship (can also be built as either The Shneider or Nansen Class ship)

  • 2 x Advance Cruiser (can be built as either a Newton, Zumeena, Vesalius or Origen Class ship)

  • 2 x Support Cruiser (can be built as either a Plinius, Tacitus. Claudius or Quintilian Class ship)

  • 2 x Frontline Cruiser (can be built as either a Stiletto, Lovelace, Copernicus, Antarctica, Chatalet or Ulysses Class ship)

  • 2 x Assault Machine (can be built as either a Ketos or Lotan Class machine)

  • 2 x Enlightened Escort

  • 6 x Merian (can also be built as a Germain Zebek)

  • 6 x Submarine (can be built as either a Praxilla or Diogenes Class ship)

  • 2 x Orka Token

  • 2 x Physeter Token

  • 2 x SRS Token

Marena Battlefleet Set


More Vitruvian Colossi are set to emerge from the murky depths, ready to lower its deadly axe on any unsuspecting vessel. That’s right, the Marena Battlefleet Set is here to continue the destruction that the Hochmeister Vitruvian Colossi started, but this time for the Commonwealth.

The Marena Vitruvian Colossus is a wonder of engineering that inspires ice-cold fear in the hearts of the enemies of the Commonwealth. A towering sight on land and no less impressive at sea, it is as versatile as it is imposing.

Its Mag-Rail Axe can be used to make crushing attacks that rain down upon enemy vessels or be launched at range causing a magnetic field that can stick a vessel on its current course. This can be particularly troublesome when combined with the Cryo-Generator that stands as the head of the machine, creating icebergs ahead of the opposing craft that it now may find itself impossible to avoid.

This box contains:

  • 3 x Marena Vitruvian Colossus (can also be built as Kostroma Vitruvian Colossus)

  • 6 x Boyar Heavy Frigate

Scandinavian Frontline Squadrons


The Scandinavians are a group of proud naval nations in the Imperium. Their vessels are fabricated primarily by the Norwegians at Akers Mekaniske Verksted. This large shipyard produces huge numbers of Hoth Heavy Corvettes for use by the Scandinavians throughout the Imperium’s fleets.

This box contains:

  • 2 x Jotunn Assault Reaver (can alternatively be built as an Odin Reaver or a Gungnir Light Reaver)

  • 4 x Hoth Heavy Corvettes

Warcradle Scenics

This month the Red Oak Town Set 2 and Estun Village Set will be available as separate terrain kits. Now that they are being offered as individual kits you can outfit your Red Oak Town or Estun Village as you envision it.

Warcradle Scenics September Releases

Red Oak

Create the perfect backdrop to host gunfights and saloon brawls that spill out onto the streets of Red Oak with the range or Red Oak individual terrain kits seen in the Red Oak Town Set 2.

Red Oak Bank


In the American frontier, the bank is not just a place to keep your dollars. Anything of value, from gold bars to family heirlooms, from Sturginium deposits to refined artworks can be safeguarded by the town bank. Such protection in the Dystopian Age does not come easily or cheaply, in times of crisis, the bank can be one of the most fortified and well-defended buildings in town - at a price.

This set contains:

  • 1x Red Oak Bank Building

  • Optional signage for a Red Oak Town Hall

Red Oak Cartwright


The advent of the Iron Horse has been a boon to the scattered settlements of the American Frontier. Of course, even these wondrous technological marvels require maintenance and recharging from time to time. Cartwrights, like this one, offer affordable services to the good folk of Red Oak - certainly preferable to dealing with the Enlightened as their assistance often literally costs an arm and a leg…

This set contains:

  • 1x Red Oak Cartwright Building

  • Optional signage for a Red Oak Delivery Office

Red Oak Distillery


Distilleries are an important part of any growing town. A booming industry in the Union frontier, it is highly lucrative being able to supply the good folk of the West a steady supply of hooch, rocket fuel and other more medicinal libations.

This set contains:

  • 1x Red Oak Distillery Building

  • 1x Barrel

Red Oak Gallows and Clock Tower



Justice is often delivered in the Union Frontier at the end of a noose. This happens a great deal at the Red Oak Gallows and Clock Tower. In such turbulent times, these gallows are both a form of macabre entertainment and a warning to the citizens that lawlessness will not be tolerated. Legally, the execution can only be carried out at an appointed hour and only by a Lawman. Many outlaws have gone to their deaths, watching the clock tower as it ticks towards their final moment, waiting for a reprieve that never comes.

This set contains:

  • 1x Red Oak Gallows

  • 1x Red Oak Clock Tower

Red Oak Post Office


While for the very wealthy, near-instant communications can be achieved through radio and other more esoteric means, for most the Post Office represents the only means of communicating with the world outside the town limits. 

Typical delivery was between a month and ten days, depending on the importance of the letter or package and of course the cost. The Post Office is an important place to not only send and receive messages but also for the local community to meet and share news as it arrives from the Union and beyond.

This set contains:

  • 1x Red Oak Post Office Building

  • Optional signage for a Red Oak Doctors

Red Oak Residence


The Red Oak Residence is of a common design found throughout the settlements of the West. Cheap and plentiful timber is supported with steel joists and copper conduits so that homesteaders have access to all of the modern conveniences that the RJ-powered Dystopian Age can offer. These modern homes are always in demand, so act quickly to secure your very own piece of the West!

This set contains:

  • 1x Red Oak Residence Building

Red Oak Town House


The multi-levelled Town House is typical of the homes the more wealthy settlers inhabit out West. Not only does this bring about a new gameplay element with its size, the building itself is hugely customisable and is compatible with elements from the Red Oak Residence to create a truly unique set of buildings for your town.

This set contains:

  • 1x Red Oak Town House Building

Red Oak Watchtower


Dominating the skyline of towns like Red Oak, these watchtowers allow the residents to keep a watchful eye for the telltale dust clouds that announce the arrival of Iron Horses and the bandits who often ride them. With parts to assemble it instead as a water tower, the Red Oak Watchtower is a great addition to your table or even the centre point for one.

This set contains:

  • 1x Red Oak Watchtower Building

  • Options to build a Water Tower.

Estun Village

Perfect for all your favourite fantasy wargames such as Frostgrave and Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms, create your ideal settlement with the range of Estun Village individual terrain kits

Estun Village - Blacksmiths

Estun - Blacksmiths_FR.jpg

The Blacksmith of the Estun is one of the most revered men in the village. He may not be a warrior though he could certainly hold his own in a fight. Instead, he is held in such high regard for without him the whole village would fall into disrepair. Everything from nails to horseshoes to swords makes its way out of that glowing forge.

This set contains:

  • 1 x Estun Village Blacksmiths

Estun Village - Church

Estun - Church_FR.jpg

The Church is a place of welcome to all, no matter their faith. It has been this way for all time. The tree carved above the door has come to represent many things through the ages. The World Tree that connects the realms, the Sun God's influence on the earth below, even the Tree of Woe upon which the God-son was crucified.

This set contains

  • 1 x Estun Village Church

Estun Village - Market

Estun Village Market

No village can stand for long without trade and Estun is no exception. The Market Stalls are the vibrant hub of the village, with exchanges for goods and services happening almost constantly. Just as important here is the trade for information, stories diffusing from here as quickly as the smell of preserved fish.

This set contains:

  • 1 x Estun Village Market

Estun Village - Saw Mill

Estun - Saw Mill_FR.jpg

If there's one thing that the people of Estun can rely on, it's the forest. Food from anything the people can forage as well as game, protection from the blizzards that come down from the mountains, but most importantly the timber from the trees themselves. The Saw Mill processes much of this to build and repair the dwellings of the village's folk as well as trade with other villages.

This set contains:

  • 1 x Estun Village Saw Mill

Estun Village - Tavern

Estun - Tavern_FR.jpg 

Even when all is quiet in Estun, the Tavern still has sounds of revelry. Mead, ale and wine from faraway lands are consumed by the hogshead. Life is hard in the mountains and everyone needs a place to ease the aching bones. Skalds know that they can pass through and get fed and watered for the price of a story. Can a village without a tavern truly be called a village at all?

This set contains:

  • 1 x Estun Village Tavern

Estun Village - Dwelling

Estun - Town House_FR.jpg

The Dwellings of Estun are known for miles around. Well built and sturdy, just like the people of the village. The shields above the doors are not purely symbolic, though they do show that these folk are protected.

This set contains:

  • 1 x Estun Village Dwelling

Estun Village - Watch Tower

Estun - Watch Tower_FR.jpg 

The Watch Tower has stood for longer than anyone can remember. Stories say that this was the first building in the village, a remnant from an empire long since fallen. Whatever the truth, horrors of all kinds have been spied from these ramparts. Without which, ambushes might have brought this settlement to its knees in ages past.

This set contains:

  • 1 x Estun Village Watch Tower

There’s a massive amount coming to Dystopian Wars and Warcradle Scenics soon. What are you looking forward to the most? Make sure not to miss out when they go live for pre-order on the 26th of August 2022 at your FLGS or Wayland Games Online.
