Warcradle Studios has now started taking pre-orders for the new Dystopian Wars Two-Player Starter Set which is now available to pre-order from the Wayland Games webstore! Check out what's included with the Hunt For The Prometheus set which features everything you need to get started.

You Can Pre-Order Dystopian Wars: Hunt For The Prometheus Here

This Starter Set marks the return to the tabletop of Dystopian Wars as we get to see a naval battle game in full flow between two plastic and resin fleets from the Covenant Of The Enlightened and the Commonwealth.

"This box set not only provides everything you need for two players to start playing Dystopian Wars, but it also contains a campaign that details the theft of the prototype Hypatia Class Generator ship by the Russian double agent Helsinki Markov. The Commonwealth Intelligence Service (known as the Okhrana) have seen a chance to acquire Enlightened secrets and add new technology to their arsenal in order to better defend the Commonwealth. They risk reprisals from the Enlightened but as long as the technology is theirs it would be worth the consequence. The Covenant guard their secrets jealously and losing the Generator ship will cost them years of research and development. The game is afoot and the stakes are high for both sides."

These ships are then joined by two books to get you started, the cards you need to begin playing the game and a bunch of dice, tokens, markers and more.

It's really nice to see these fleets getting an upgrade and being brought back to the tabletop. The 1/1200 scale means that you've got the chance to play around with some absolutely massive naval forces which bring together that signature blend of Steampunk and Sci-Fi that the world of Dystopian Wars is known for, especially now it has been blended into the existing worlds that Warcradle has been helming.

The Miniatures & More

As mentioned above, the miniatures here are looking pretty darn awesome and they seem like they're going to be a heck load of fun to paint!

Commonwealth Fleet - Dystopian Wars

Commonwealth Fleet // Dystopian Wars

With this particular fleet, you've got...

  • 1x Borodino Class Battleship
  • 5x Kutsov Class Cruisers - Each Cruiser can alternatively be built as either Norilsk, Oleg or Sineus Class
  • 10x Rurik Class Frigates

If you were looking at this set of miniatures and were more drawn to the Covenant Of The Enlightened then cop a load of these!

Covenant Of The Enlightened - Dystopian Wars

Covenant Of The Enlightened // Dystopian Wars

Within this set, you get all manner of fascinating miniatures which are a little different from the traditional "ship" look of the Commonwealth.

  • 1x Descartes Class Control Ship
  • 1x Hypatia Class Generator Ship
  • 3x Copernicus Class Heavy Cruisers - Each Cruiser can alternatively be built as either Antarctica, Chatelet, Lovelace, Stiletto or Ulysses Class
  • 9x Merian Class Drone Frigates - Each Frigate can alternatively be built as Germain Class

I think I would be hard-pressed to work out which particular fleet I would pick over the other. The Commonwealth have that neat style to them which would be easier to paint but the Covenant also have funky ships which look like they've come from a work of Victoriana Sci-Fi!

As well as the miniatures you've also got a neat Rulebook to get stuck into...

...and also the Hunt For The Prometheus Campaign book which you can play through with your friends. You can get introduced to new concepts part-by-part here and get your head around all of the rules as you go.
