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.

The boy, I say, the boy is as sharp as a sack of wet mice...

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!

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.
