January Releases: Ambition Soars As The Icarus Launches

Recommended Posts

While we hope you are enjoying the Holiday season, there’s exciting news about what you can expect in January from us here at Warcradle Studios. This month is a massive one with plenty to get excited about for Dystopian Wars and Warcradle Scenics.

The Icarus Battlefleet Set sees itself enter the seas of Dystopian Wars for the Enlightened, poised to launch a volley of Squadrons at the first sight of an enemy! Not to be outdone, the Empire employ the use of a terrifying threat as the Heilong Battlefleet Set becomes available to pre-order.

New Year means new starts, and there is no better way to start the year than with a new fleet. If you’ve ever wanted an easy way to get started with the Union, Empire, Sultanate or Alliance, then our new range of Faction Battlefleets are for you.

The Enlighted Advanced Squadrons and Canadian Frontline Squadrons are available to order outside the Archimedes Battlefleet Set, Sturginium Skies and the Protecteur Battlefleet Set.

Finally, the Promethean Complex Set becomes available as individual terrain kits to help you customise your Enlightened complex to host gunfights and twisted experiments.

Warcradle Scenics January Releases

Promethean - Refinery

 

 Promethean-Complex_Refinery-1 (2).jpg 

In the Dystopian Age there are all sorts of curious compounds and esoteric elements that need to be refined before they can be used in engineering applications. These refineries are a common site in and around Promethean complexes. Any visitors are repulsed by the toxic fumes given off by these sites and surprised that any workers in the vicinity could get used to such a foul stench.

This box contains:

  • 1x Promethean Refinery


Promethean - Derrick

 

 Promethean-Complex_Derrick-1 (2).jpg 

Derricks are dotted about everywhere in Promethean Complexes. Used for moving heavy loads where it might be required and a construct wouldn’t be practical, they are also converted to pump jacks on occasion. These ubiquitous sights with their hypnotic, repetitive movements are symbolic of the barely human constructs that seem to act the same, all for the benefit of the Covenant of the Enlightened and their goal of global control.

This box contains:

  • 1x Promethean Derrick


Promethean - Forge

 

 Promethean-Complex_Furnace-1 (2).jpg 

The forges of a Promethean Complex burn night and day to smelt all sorts of raw materials for use in their engineering breakthroughs. It would be impossible to acquire the vast quantities of iron and other metals from outside so ore is brought in from all over the Union and beyond to keep the fires of industry burning. This has the benefit of making it much more difficult for external governments to keep track of all the wonderful and terrible advances made by the Covenant of the Enlightened.

This box contains:

  • 1x Promethean Forge


Promethean - Walkways

 

 Promethean-Complex_Platforms-1 (2).jpg 

The labyrinthine surroundings of a Promethean Complex are home to all sorts of workshops, storage facilities and industrial buildings. Often the only way to traverse these sites is via walkways added after the fact to make sure engineers and construct-drones can get from point A to point F.35b. Access, rather than safety, is the order of the day so handrails are strictly optional. After all, constructs are replaceable and engineers should know better.

This box contains:

  • 1x Promethean Walkways


Promethean - Mine Entrances

Promethean Complex Mine Entrances

Often it’s easier for a Promethean Complex to just be built over a mine in the first place. If that’s not an option then the Enlightened have advanced machinery and indentured servants that allow them to mine otherwise deposits of ore inaccessible to the other great powers. Even mines that aren’t fiscally viable are opened given the insatiable hunger the Covenant of the Enlightened have for coal and raw materials.

This box contains:

  • 2x Promethean Mine Entrances


We’re starting this year off strong with so many exciting January releases, what are you looking forward to the most? Will you be picking up a new faction in 2023? Make sure not to miss out when these pre-orders go live on the 30th of December 2022 at your FLGS or Wayland Games Online.
