July 2011 Dystopian Wars releases part 1
Spartan Games have posted images and details of their Dystopian Wars releases for July 2011. We have a second post with tthe rest of the Dystopian Wars releases for July 2011.
DWPE09 Prussian Empire Wachter class Escort (6) £6.00
While most escorts are intended to provide anti-aircraft protection or concussion charge protection, the Wachter is actually designed to protect vessels in one simple way: hurt the enemy.
DWPE10 Stolz class Destroyer (3) £7.00
Although its fore guns are a fixed channel, they are a Primary weapon and at Range Band 1 kick out 6AD of hurt to an enemy. Like other Destroyers these vessels have the Pack Hunters MAR, making a squadron of 4 models rather nasty.
DWPE11 Prussian Empire Blucher class Dreadnought (1) £13.50
Gebhard Leberecht von Blucher was a famous Prussian Generalfeldmarschall (Field Marshall) who was known for his rather direct military tactics. ‘On it like Blucher’ is a term synonymous in the Prussian military for taking the fight to the enemy. The designers behind this Dreadnought certainly took this to heart. b powerful Primary turrets rain death on enemy targets and row after row of Tesla Coils rip into enemy vessels.
DWPE22 Prussian Empire A9-V Sturmpanzer Land Ship (1) £12.50
The Sturmpanzer has become rightly feared across the battlefields of the world. It has a fearsome array of turrets and is armed to the teeth with Tesla coils. Sturmpanzers are at the forefront of every assault and form the heart of every defence.
DWPE23 Prussian Empire A6-V Class Medium Tank (6) £7.00
The A6-V has flexible arcs of fire to take advantage of individual and linked fire. It also carries a sizeable complement of rocket marines. A full squadron of A6-Vs can pose an ever present threat of a massed boarding assault.
DWPE24 Prussian Empire B3-S Medium Bombard (6) £7.00
The B3-S fills a close support role in Prussian armies. They follow behind the first wave of tanks laying down a heavy shifting bombardment.
DWPE25 Prussian Empire Walze Class Small Tank (20) £7.00
The Walze is an efficient scout tank, often deployed in large squadrons. With its fore guns and Tesla coils it is able to look after itself in a fire fight.
DWKB09 Kingdom of Britannia Bastion class Escort (6) £6.00
Anti-Aircraft is the role of the Bastion Class Escort. This small and nimble vessel is designed to protect the larger vessels, such as the Ruler Class Battleship, from incoming aerial assaults.
DWKB09 Kingdom of Britannia Orion class Destroyer (3) £7.00
Britannia Destroyers are, like all ships of this class in Dystopian Wars, Pack Hunters. That is to say they have a special MAR rule that allows them to hunt down larger vessels and destroy them. The Orion has a single fore turret with a 270 degree arc of fire and fore torpedoes. It can be deployed in a squadron of 2 to 4 models.
DWKB11 Kingdom of Britannia Majesty class Dreadnought (1) £13.50
The Majesty Class is a sight to behold when steaming towards the enemy, its SIX Primary turrets coming to bear on enemy targets. Defensively the model can have up to TWO Shield Generators, which can be added without losing any turrets. Although relatively costly at 230 points (270 points with its two shield generators), the Majesty is a fine addition to any Naval Fleet.
DWKB22 Kingdom Of Britannia Sovereign Class Land Ship (1) £12.50
The Sovereign is the utility workhorse of the Britannian land armies, and is a common sight across the world. As well as performing logistical functions it is very versatile, with different models of the same design having either turrets, mortars or a headquarters.
DWKB23 Kingdom Of Britannia MKII Class Medium Tank (6) £7.00
The MKII has plenty of firepower in three arcs giving it lots of options and no fear of being surrounded. A well positioned squadron of MKIIs can hold ground and threaten multiple enemies, linking their fire when necessary to take down targets of a larger class.
DWKB24 Kingdom Of Britannia Cromwell Class Bombard (6) £7.00
The Cromwell is a bunker buster of a tank. Although rigged for indirect fire it has been used extensively on the battlefield as a close range battle tank.
DWKB25 Kingdom Of Britannia Terrier Class Small Tank (20) £6.00
The Terrier is fast and agile, usually deployed in large numbers as a combined attack a full squadron is a threat to most targets.
