This weekend I played my first three games of Dystopian Wars, thanks to MadDrB and Ruckdog on ManBattlestations.com. Immediately before the first game on Saturday, I finished the last of my Russian Coalition fleet – the final eight frigates and three cruisers. Lots of pictures follow.
The whole fleet – packed up in a shoebox. The freshly painted cruisers are featured in the bottom left, frigates in the center.
The first game on Saturday was a small, 400-point recon system using the DW adapted X-Cam rules. The main thing I learned from this game? Frigates have a use!
A few shots of the entire, finished fleet.
We played that first game at The Game Vault, and hey – look at that, my favorite 40k novel, in poster form!
The second game on (Sunday’s first) was another small, 400-point recon game. The objective in this one was for Ruckdog’s forces to reach his home base. Important lesson from this game: don’t forget about Sturginium Boost on the Tambov Gunships!
The second mission was an 800 point “assassination” mission. The above two shots are pictures of the fleet I chose. Lots of frigates. Lots of ablative armor.
The attacking French.
All in all, a good weekend of gaming, a good advance in the campaign system, and best of all – learning the game! Also, I was happy to get to used a fully painted fleet on a ocean board I made myself.
