  1. Hello all! Not really a new player but returning after a hiatus. I started DW back in 2012 and have played (very) intermittently against a friend since then. Interest has been rekindled recently due to another player buying into the game, so after haunting the forum for awhile I decided to dig up my login and dive back into the mix! I play KoB, CF, STO, and some PE, my main opponent is CoA and the new blood bought some more CoA and a bit of PE. Looking forward to being part of the community again!
  2. @Spartan Mike Any news on the ORBAT?
  3. How much of a blow do you all generally think the loss of rugged construction on our smalls is?
  4. As a note on the Prince squadron: it does have 16 AP with 8 of them being elite. Not bad as a late game boarders descending out of the sky! Of course this is after saturating the ocean with 20AD mines that can be blown up whenever we want do to magnetic mines (or whatever it's called now)!
  5. I'm fairly new to Dystopian wars. I started playing last year and I've been reading the forums for awhile now. I've seen people post that our Dread is the best but I've had some trouble with the CoA dread in my last few games. I've only really played against it once but it destroyed in that game. It was a sort of unusual game because it was a long narrow table with no cover so that might be the reason it was so good. During that game I only put a single point of damage on with my hawks mine in the last move of the game. I focused all of my dread's fire that I could at it. I was moving forward to begin with but then i turned side ways but by that point I was link five guns for five dice at range band one. Has anyone experienced something similar? Does anyone have any advice for taking it out? The person I was playing is going to be my main opponent once we get started playing more often.
  6. What is everyone's opinion on how to use the Ruler. I like the Idea of using it as a flanking support ship with the Dread as the main force in the middle. How do you use it?
  7. That's good to here I'm glad the Vanguard are at least somewhat effective as a boarder. That is my intended use but I don't really get a chance to play.
  8. Canada is a British dominion, not FSA. I wonder if I need to get a Canadian force to get this or if I can run it with a British force.
  9. with four cruisers you can get 28 ap. i know their conscripts but still. it begs mentioning.
  10. I kinda want to see how the brunel squares up against land dread. I know its less points but still.
  11. I've wondered. Does that include dropping the mine within 1" or just directly on top.
  12. Is anyone else sad that none of our models have this? It seems to me that it would be an interesting choice to swap for a shield. We only have the shield and guardian right now.
  13. I had my first magazine explosion in my first activation of a land battle. It wiped out a war gyro before it achieved any damage against me.
  14. None of the KoB stuff has Rb1 Torpedoes.
  15. I do like the Idea of the British getting some sort of massive mobile fortress or a bulldog robot. I also thought that, in keeping with the bird theme for the Hawk and eagle, you could have a small flying robot bird with Rb1 fore guns and the pack hunter for a assaults (forgot the name). That was before the freedom came out though.
  16. I too wish that the British had a giant robot but I also have trouble of thinking of what that would be like for the British. It just doesn't seem right for them. "We don't need robots! Send the Landship!"
  17. I think the 4" should be measured from the post and for the two post models maybe the line between the posts.
  18. How do you guys use air? What models do you use? What types of issues do you encounter with using them?
  19. I think he is referring to the fact that our air units (except the Merlin) lack air-to-air firepower.
  20. I for one am glad that, as a KoB player, my club has no Ikas. My dread already feels vulnerable enough against the CoA dread.
  21. Indeed. I may see if I can proxy some merlins and try an all air fleet. My group tends to be rather lax about proxying. I played a game yesterday with a few of the people at my club who don't really know the rules yet. We did 600 points. I had a dread, 2 vanguards, 4 attackers and 2 hawks. I was allied with the FSA and the had similar. (cruisers instead of vanguards) The other side was PE and CoA We started late and had end so weonlu got to turns in but my hawks preformes fairly well. I flew them over a frigate rush and laid mines in front. They managed to come out of a broadside attack by a pair of pfilchts unharmed.
  22. I just have a Brunel. I did think a 70% illustrious would be awesome. Unfortunately my budget is done for the year so I won't be getting anymore soon. (Gotta save for a computer.)
  23. That would be an intense amount of tiny flyers.
  24. I have't played many games with them but when I did I flew them at his dread linking torpedoes and then non linked bombing. I think others use them to hunt small because they are medium but not capital so they it on 4,5,6.
  25. From what I've read the gunship is the safest option. The Tribal and Vanguard both work but they require more delicate tactics and maneuvering. However I'm a firm believer that if you want to use a unit you can make it work. However, the gunship is probably your best choice. You have to have at least 1 squadron of small, medium, and large/massive
