July 2011 Dystopian Wars releases part 2
Spartan Games have posted images and details of their Dystopian Wars releases for July 2011. We posted the first part of their July 2011 Dystopian Wars releases earlier.
DWBS09 Empire of the Blazing Sun Kitsune class Escort (6) £5.00
After the demise of the Battleship Hideyoshi to an aerial attack of Federation bombers, where the vessel had been left unprotected naval engagement, the Blazing Sun military vowed to never make again. The Kitsune is designed to provide a low cost AA defence for the likes of Carriers, Battleships and Dreadnoughts.
DWBS10 Empire of the Blazing Sun Yurgi class Destroyer (3) £7.00
Rockets, rockets and more rockets. You can hear the engineers of this destroyer howling for more ranged weaponry. As with other ships of this class the Pack Hunters MAR is in play, and a full squadron of 4 Yurgis is a sight to behold as all the Rocket Batteries let loose.
DWBS11 Hachiman class Dreadnought (1) £13.50
With three of the world’s most powerful naval turrets attached to its hull, the Hachiman can target an enemy in Range Band 1 with 25 dice, hit targets in its fore arc with as many as 7AD of torpedoes and shoot out up to 9AD of Rocket Batteries at Range Band 4. Don’t get too close or an AP of 12 will cost you your crew (and ship.) and an AA of 8 helps protect the vessel from aerial attacks. The Hachiman is a powerful all round vessel.
DWBS22 Empire Of The Blazing Sun Taka Ishi Heavy Walker (1) £12.50
The Taka Ishi represents an alternate advance in the design of battlefield assets. With its mere size it presents an intimidating target and is a beast in urban combat. It has great all round fire with its knee turrets, main turret and rocket battery.
DWBS23 Empire Of The Blazing Sun Chi Ri Class Medium Tank (6) £7.00
The Chi Ri has a durable chassis and a wide firing arc with its turret and broadsides. It also has a good anti-aircraft ability for its class.
DWBS24 Empire Of The Blazing Sun Ho I Class Bombard (6) £7.00
The Ho I is more than capable of bombarding enemy vehicles and fortifications with sustained fire at both short and long range. It can also fire into either the fore or aft arcs.
DWBS25 Empire Of The Blazing Sun Ke Ho Class Small Tank (20) £7.00
The Ke Ho has a straightforward design (even if it is round.) and can take a fair amount of punishment for its size. A squadron of Ke Hos can be quite a threat to ground and air targets alike.
DWFS09 Federated States of America Springfield class Escort (6) £6.00
The Springfield is intended to escort and protect larger vessels from aerial attacks. With a low points cost and an AA rating of 3, the vessel is a well priced addition to a Dreadnought, Carrier or Battleship.
DWFS10 Federated States of America Guilford class Destroyer (3) £7.00
Although its fore guns are not the most powerful, the Guilford does make up for this with port and starboard Rocket Batteries that are effective out to Range Band 3. As with other Destroyers in the game, up to 4 can be used in a squadron and the Pack Hunters MAR makes them fairly lethal.
DWFS11 Federated States of America Enterprise class Dreadnought (1) £13.50
The Enterprise Class is, quite literally, a floating platform of death. It can slam an enemy with its THREE Primary turrets, rain down destruction from above with its Rocket Batteries and, with a plethora of anti-aircraft batteries and concussion charge stations, defend itself rather well. The model is well worth its 240 points.
DWFS22 Federated States of America Washington Class Land Ship (1) £12.50
The Washington is one of very few aquatic tanks having been developed by the FSA to support amphibious landings. Its dual use and potent firepower make it a dangerous asset on the battlefield, while the high profile of its headquarters makes it a rallying point.
DWFS23 Federated States of America DWFS23 Trenton Class Medium Tank (6) £7.00
The Trenton has powerful forward and aft batteries. A squadron of Trentons is adept at close formation manoeuvres, so that multiple squadrons of Trentons can maintain clear arcs of fire to the front while remaining a danger to enemies that pierce their rear lines.
DWFS24 Federated States of America Yorktown Class Bombard (6) £7.00
The Yorktown provides essential artillery support to FSA formations. It can lay down destructive strikes from the rear, and has the added feature of firing either forward or backward.
DWFS25 Federated States of America Pioneer Class Small Tank (20) £7.00
The Pioneer is a tough little tank. It combines direct firepower with improved anti-aircraft capability, and in a full squadron can threaten most flyers.
