I'm pretty much a new player to these Naval combat games. The choice of what cruiser to build out of the plastics seems a bit intimidating at first, but when I look at the price of the plastic expansions, I'm really not that fussed about just buying another fairly cheap box (similar price to a single hero in GW terms) to make more cruisers and get some more frigates to boot.

All in all, this multiple cruisers options in one plastic sprue (along with boatloads of weapon options) feels like the better deal overall and shows fairly good planning imo.

That's how BFG used to work, 2 heavily customizable plastic cruisers for, like, 7€ (not adjusted for inflation). People had enormous fleets.

Yep its a solid way to add a lot of ships in one go without having to have many models. It also lets them justify making them in plastic because they'll sell multiple times to each customer. Even those who have gone nuts with magnets (I've seen some use small magnets to magnetize the whole hull not just the weapons) will still buy quite a few packs to bulk out their fleets.

Man the turrets are one thing but magnetizing the hulls seems an unreasonable amount of work compared to just buying more sprues

Agreed, I'm all for magnets but I've got limits on what I think is practical and fun. That said at least most of the hulls will magnetize and hold together fairly well. I've seen people magnetizing things like Imperial guard infantry arms and I always think that the angles and contact points are such that they'll always have to handle their models with extreme care or be forever sticking arms back on.

Yeah, I was looking into it a bit more, and some have gone to extreme lengths to magnetise the hull.

But I'm with you 100%, I would value my time a bit more and just get another set and quickly glue together a few more ships.

With care they can be magnetized too.

August is an incredibly exciting month at Warcradle Studios, especially for Dystopian Wars and Mythos players.

New releases for Dystopian Wars will be arriving at FLGS stores this upcoming month. And if you hadn’t seen the previous announcements this month, Warcradle Studios are ecstatic to bring the Ice Maiden Battlefleet Set to your tabletop.

That is certainly not all this month for Dystopian Wars in August. Along with the Ice Maiden Battlefleet Set, the first terrain set for Dystopian Wars, entitled the Island and Archipelagos Terrain Set, is also heading for release. Providing more depth to your naval warfare table, taking your games further into the Dystopian Age from just a blue table cloth.

The faction many of you have been waiting for, The Crown are finally joining the battle too this August. With the Britannia Battlefleet Set, the highly anticipated British were announced on St George's Day. For centuries they were the greatest power across the world, now players can reassert this dominance using The Crown to keep other factions under her Majesty's control.

The Union Frontline Squadrons are making their way onto the rough seas, ready to bolster up your faction with some serious American Spirit fuelling the journey.

Want to harness the power of Mythos in a new location? After the incredible success of the Dunsmouth line of terrain, the Augusta Terrain Set became the newest destination to fight for.



ICE MAIDEN BATTLEFLEET SET

Ice Maiden Battlefleet Set is the largest release for Dystopian Wars since the Hunt the Prometheus Two-Player Starter Set released earlier this year.



ISLANDS SET

The Islands and Archipelagos Set is one of the few naval themed terrain sets on the market, and the first set of terrain for Dystopian Wars.



BRITANNIA BATTLEFLEET SET

Here comes the British! The Crown is here to make their entrance, after anticipation from St. George’s Day - the Britannia Battlefleet Set is finally here! Warcradle Studios have been busy bringing this fleet up to speed with the Enlightened and the Commonwealth, with even more to come for The Crown very soon, so make sure to keep those eyes peeled.



UNION FRONTLINE SQUADRONS

With the release of the Constitution Battlefleet Set last month, players will be thrilled to know that the Union are getting reinforcements - the Union Frontline Squadrons. The Union is expanding steadily, and players will be able to expand upon their fleet quickly.



AUGUSTA INDUSTRIAL SET

The newest terrain release for Warcradle Scenics is here, and designed for Mythos in mind, however adaptable for any 28-35mm skirmish game. The Augusta Industrial Set incorporates MDF, and is detailed with design to come straight out of assembly and onto the tabletop.



Excited about Warcradle Studios August new releases? Make sure to pre-order from July 30th 2021 at your FLGS stores or Wayland Games online. Get ready to deploy the Ice Maiden this August!

You can read the full article about the new monthly releases here : August Releases: Deploy the Ice Maiden!

September brings with it even more Dystopian Wars miniatures to the tabletop and it doesn’t stop there as Warcradle Scenics has some very interesting Dunsmouth terrain in store for Mythos players too.

Not only are we releasing an Enlightened fleet, the Hypatia Battlefleet Set, but we are also reinforcements for the Britannia Battlefleet Set with the Crown Frontline Squadrons.

Dunsmouth town is expanding, bringing the Tillinghast Manor to life in this desolate and quiet town. An immense terrain asset to any tabletop that adorns Mythos and any other fantasy miniature or role-playing game.



DYSTOPIAN WARS

This month sees two exciting new releases for Dystopian Wars for The Enlightened and The Crown, namely the Hypatia Battlefleet set and the Crown Frontline Squadrons.



Hypatia Battlefleet Set

Seen within the Hunt for the Prometheus Two-player Starter Set, the Hypatia Class will now be available to purchase in its own Hypatia Battlefleet Set. Expanding the Enlightened faction further, the Hypatia joins the Descartes Battlefleet Set which is released in July of this year



The Hypatia class has established itself as one of the most versatile ships available to the Enlightened.

The support ships that escort Hypatia Class vessels and other large ships fill some often more specialist roles.

Crown Frontline Squadrons

Here come the reinforcements! Following the release of the first fleet for the Crown faction in Dystopian Wars, the Britannia Battlefleet Set, new additions have been called in to strengthen the frontlines and extend their dominion... Enter the Crown Frontline Squadrons!



The most common vessel and backbone of the Crown fleet is the Albion Cruiser.

Several modifications have been made to the Albion Hull design over the years such as the intimidating Lancelot Heavy Cruiser, the fast Picton and the lightly armed Bedivere.

With so much coast to cover, and such a large fleet, the creation of the Sabre Class Command Cruiser enabled high ranking Naval officers to command Battlefleets from more numerous, smaller ships.

WARCRADLE SCENICS



Dunsmouth - Tillinghast Manor

With the success of the Dunsmouth line of terrain created with Mythos in mind, Warcradle Studios have even more Dunsmouth terrain in store for September. The Tillinghast Manor and the Expansion Pack will be available to pre-order to take your tabletop scenery one step further, as there clearly isn’t enough of a constant state of tension and paranoia in Dunsmouth already...



The dark and narrow streets of Dunsmouth, Rhode Island, is home to a small fishing community. Typically in communities like this everyone knows everyone else’s business, but not in Dunsmouth. Here people keep themselves to themselves and there is a constant state of tension and paranoia that hangs over the town like a cloying mist.

Dunsmouth - Tillinghast Manor: Expansion Pack

The Dunsmouth Tillinghast Manor: Expansion Pack swells with grandeur, adding everything a manor house needs. The walled grounds, garden features, and groundskeeper's house give Tillinghast Manor more of a stately presence.



The well above average number of unexplained disappearances seem to go uninvestigated by the authorities and the inhabitants tend not to discuss such things with outsiders, if they take the time to talk to them at all. Dunsmouth is not a place to take a summer vacation, in fact, you would do well to give the place a wide berth.

Excited about Warcradle Studios September new releases? Make sure to pre-order from August 27th 2021 at your FLGS or Wayland Games online. These items will be arriving in stores, and in postboxes, from the end of September 2021.

Make sure to keep up to date with Warcradle Studios’ socials, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for new releases and spoiler alerts.

ANNOUNCEMENT: SHOWDOWN AT RETRIBUTION THE WILD WEST EXODUS TWO PLAYER STARTER SET

You may have heard the rumours of something big happening for Wild West Exodus and we’re excited to be able to reveal them to you. Make sure not to miss the release of this highly anticipated product as we finally show you a new trailer, going into detail of what exactly this next big thing is.

Since the release of the Wild West Exodus: Gunfight at Red Oak Starter Set many people have been asking when the next Two Player Starter Set will be announced and we are happy to share with you the Wild West Exodus: Showdown at Retribution Two Player Starter Set!




As the Enlightened force, led by the morally bankrupt scientist Gustave Eiffel, arrives in the town of Retribution the mayor is desperate for aid. However, who should answer the call but Nikolai Tesla, the hero of the Union! This meeting is far from a coincidence and as the stage is set for the epic showdown it is clear this is all part of Eiffel’s plans for vengeance. This town certainly ain’t big enough for the both of them…



Ideal for new players and veterans to the game alike, the Showdown at Retribution Two Player Starter Set is a comprehensive introduction to the savage Wild West of the Dystopian Age. The Starter Set Contains two forces, the full third edition rulebook, a quick start guide and more. We hope you are as excited as we are here at Warcradle Studios to see these gunslingers duel.

Coming October 2021

Yes, the models are in the 35mm and look it, too. Next to, say, a Brother Vinni or Wasteland Warfare 32mm model they are a head taller (comparing normal humans). But indeed they are nice models. I have a force of the Frankenstein faction since it looks cool and it's the least Wild West thing they had at the time.

I've played two or three years ago. I think there's been an edition change in the meantime, but I haven't kept up with the game, so my information may be outdated. I thought the game was pretty fun with interesting mechanics, with the sole exception of it being a terrible re-roll fest that makes modern 40k look outright conservative.

Imagine your normal humans being the same size as a primaris marine and you are good for scale.

I really do like the gameplay. Our local group of 6 players is starting a gunslinger league soon. It uses a D10 system with (strong points and weaknesses) alongside a card system as part of your resource management.

Strong points:
- Alternating activation. I'm done with IGYG systems, alternating activation is just way more dynamic.
- Meaningful resource management. You can go full hog if you want, compensate for some bad luck, but you'll notice the casualties pile up when you went through all your unique resources.
- the D10 system is solid. There are plenty of re-roll mechanics, but you can't reroll a roll of 1 (critical failure) or 10 (critical success). So criticals feel a lot more meaningful.

Things I hope they tweak.
- Number of USR/keywords. The game had SO MANY that created some really funky interactions that weren't always easy to understand.
- Uncapped modifiers. They could stack to absurd levels, making some characters near unkillable.
- You score VP through missions or through cards. I hope they increase the amount of VP related to the mission... You could sometimes ignore it completely and still come out on top because your cardplay was very solid.

This October is set to be very exciting at Warcradle Studios, with some massive releases for the gunslinging world of Wild West Exodus. Including a brand new two-player starter set; Showdown at Retribution as well as a new Warcradle Scenics Terrain Set that can be used alongside the boxed set.

Showdown at Retribution, the two-player starter set for Wild West Exodus includes both the Union and Enlightened forces inside - this will be a great starting point for any new players or a boxed set for collectors to acquire.

Not only that, but this month also sees the release of terrain-based sets in the bustling town of Retribution. The Retribution Town set and the Retribution Town House by Warcradle Scenics can easily be paired with Showdown at Retribution. These can be used with multiple game systems, including Wild West Exodus and Malifaux.

Make sure to get your pre-order in for these exciting new releases on October 15th at Wayland Games or your FLGS!



SHOWDOWN AT RETRIBUTION

The Showdown at Retribution Two Player Starter Set serves not only as a great way for new players to start playing Wild West Exodus, but also as an appealing addition to any player's existing collection.

The frontier of the Union of Federated States is a wild and often lawless place. Ideal for outlaws, renegades and zealots to prey on the locals. Now a force led by the morally bankrupt Enlightened scientist Gustave Eiffel has arrived in the town of Retribution.

ENLIGHTENED

Gustave Eiffel



The mayor sends out a call for aid and is overjoyed to find that the hero of the Union, Nikolai Tesla is in the area. But as the Union forces pull into Retribution it becomes clear that this is no coincidence and all has unfolded to Eiffel’s plans for vengeance. The stage is set for an epic showdown in Retribution between these two rivals.

UNION

Nikolai Tesla



Get into the new edition of Wild West Exodus with Showdown at Retribution – a two player starter set designed to give you a comprehensive introduction to the savage Wild West in the Dystopian Age. Containing dozens of fantastically detailed Warcradle miniatures, the full third edition rulebook, quick start guide to help you get going straight away and much more - this hefty boxed set is an easy way to explore the game and start your hobby adventure.

WARCRADLE SCENICS

Retribution Town Set

Accompanying Showdown at Retribution, is the Retribution Town Set and Town House. With October's releases you can create and fight within your very own town of Retribution on the tabletop.



Most frontier towns in the midwest are sparsely populated, largely lawless, dangerous places to live in or to visit. Retribution, however, is a different story. With the 7th Cavalry and 222nd Infantry Union regiments now based out Camp Soule a few miles to the west, the town has been transformed into an oasis of entertainment and civility in a desert of threats, violence and death.

Thanks to the Union dollars pouring in, the town has expanded to include a railroad station, a theater, new housing projects and many more amenities that are denied to most folk out West.

Retribution Town House

As well as the Retribution Town Set, you can also pre-order the Retribution Town House. A modular building for Retribution that helps you populate your town with buildings that stand out from each other, depending on how you choose to build them.



So October is definitely looking to be a massive month for Wild West Exodus. It doesn’t stop there though.

We also have something very special in the works for all those intending on picking up Showdown at Retribution, introducing…

November is a big month here at Warcradle Studios, exciting new pre-orders are coming your way for Dystopian Wars, Wild West Exodus and Warcradle Scenics.

Dystopian Wars players have a lot to look forward to with the release of the Victory Battlefleet Set and the Tianlong Battlefleet Set. The Enlightened are also getting reinforcements with the Enlightened Support Squadron.

With so much to look forward to, make sure you pre-order from October 29th 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.



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.



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.

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.

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.



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

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.



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.



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.

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.



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.

Global Gunslinger League

Interested in Wild West Exodus and the Showdown at Retribution Two Player Starter Set? We have something very exciting in the works for you then.

OnTableTop is hosting the Global Gunslinger League, an exciting online hobby introduction to Wild West Exodus.

The Facebook group had a few previews in there to show off a few things set for release in the next year. I thought it would be nice to share some here.

As FB video download is always wonky, I made a quick video upload to my YT channel:








I really do like the additions of more aerial units and skimmer units. The Tianlong were already quite funky and these more unique designs are what I like to see more off!

Oh, not just the air units! So far, the releases were cool, but a bit conservative... But I guess you have to start with the basic battleships and supportships first before you can add the spicy stuff.

I hope the giant Robots, submarines and mobile fortresses hit the shelves soon. The Japanese Kongo fleet just leaked and the "robo-squid" Chita escorts are just the kind of models I like!

The entire land side is basically out of the game. Dystopian Wars right now is purely a sea game. The Ground Combat game, last I heard, was being set in mid-africa and was going to be a totally separate game, project and even scale of models. However we've not actually heard anything on that in a long while and they've still got Firestorm Armada (which fingers crossed is hopefully a 2022 project). So the ground side might be a long while out yet.


I suspect the closest we'll get to land things for Dystopian Wars will be things like batteries, forts, harbours and the like. Ergo structures and installations, but no land aircraft carriers and such.

Of course that doesn't mean we won't get huge walkers (striding/swimming/flying); or that we won't get insane huge flying and seafaring things



All that said removing the land component has never been a popular choice and with it so far removed from release it could come back around again, but they've given no hints of that .

The real problem is that even the core elements are looking a lot more samey between factions than Spartan's were. I looked up this Kongo fleet and it looks closer to current Brits than to the old Japanese ships.

Correct. I believe they also mentioned the main reason to remove the land components, is effectively the scale. A tank in the old Dystopian Wars would be a driving warehouse at that 2mm scale, so that's why they wanted to make a separate game for it.

That being said, some of the giant walkers will still be in the game.

The waters of the Dystopian Age are coming alive once more with the upcoming release of a battlefleet set from an exciting new nation to Dystopian Wars, the Japanese! The Kongo Battlefleet Set will launch this January.

Nikolai Tesla has been hard at work and January sees his hard work pay off with the release of the UR-31E Teslabots, your first chance to acquire these heavily-armed automata for Wild West Exodus outside of the Showdown at Retribution Two Player Starter Set.

Last up is the Augusta range from Warcradle Scenics, which sees the Augusta Industrial Set, released in August 2021 now in individual terrain sets, allowing you to add even more to your wargames set in the grim setting of Augusta.

Make sure you don’t miss out on all these exciting new releases available to pre-order from December 31st 2021. Due to be released at the end of January 2022.



Dystopian Wars

This month introduces a brand new nation to Dystopian Wars with the release of the Kongo Battlefleet Set. The Empire will be sure to take advantage of these new Japanese ships that pack a significant punch.



Kongo Battlefleet Set

The Japanese enter the fray for the first time and are ready to fight for The Empire with the upcoming release of the Kongo Battlefleet Set.



Of all the Battleships upon the seas in the last 50 years the Britannia Class of the Crown has been considered the heaviest. That is until the Empire launched the Kongo Class Heavy Battleship.

One of the deadliest warships to ply the seas of the Dystopian Age, the Kongo is crewed by some of the finest sailors in all of Japan. The design of this behemoth was always aimed at making it as armoured as possible while still retaining speed and manoeuvrability as much as the best Japanese naval engineers could manage.

Wild West Exodus

Can you hear that? The mechanical marching of the UR-31E Teslabots is almost deafening as Nikolai Tesla’s inventions come to life once more for Wild West Exodus.



UR-31E Teslabots

Nikolai Tesla is not a man to stand still. He is forever moving forward, tinkering with his designs and dreaming up new and ever more challenging projects.



The UR-31 E is one such progression from the UR-31 Automata, a design that became ubiquitous to replace lost manpower after the Ore War. These so-called ‘Teslabots’ are hard wired with either ranged offensive instructions or more defensive, close order ones depending on their equipment loadout.

Warcradle Scenics

As night envelopes the industrial district of Augusta, the ne'er do wells come out in full force. Back from Warcradle Scenics is the Augusta Industrial range of terrain sets, now available to purchase individually.

Bring the town of Augusta to life in Wild West Exodus, Warhammer 40k, Infinity, and more!

Augusta Industrial Range

On the edge of town sits the industrial district of Augusta. This collection of small factories, warehouses, and depots are busy by day and all but abandoned by night. When the sun goes down the dark alleyways and abandoned lots are rife with illicit activity, squatters, and criminal elements.



But it doesn’t end there, things move in the shadows, shapes flow just out of the corner of your eye and if you stand very still you can hear a slow rhythmic thrumming of a vast machine beneath your feet.

So this month is packed full of exciting upcoming releases with a new nation for Dystopian Wars, a set of standalone UR-31E Teslabots as seen in Showdown at Retribution for Wild West Exodus, and a range of industrial scenics from Warcradle Scenics.

Make sure you don’t miss out when they go on pre-order December 31st 2021 from your FLGS or Wayland Games online.

As always, be sure to keep up to date with Warcradle Studios’ socials, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for new releases and more.
