A Land Divided

A Land Divided

The League of Italian States coalesced in 1848 in response to the rising tide of agitation that swept across Europe. This springtime of nations failed to dramatically alter the landscape in most countries it affected; the Paris Revolution was swiftly put down by French police, similar uprisings across Europe were quickly dealt with, and life soon returned to normal. In the Italian peninsula things were less brief, and the shockwaves caused by the Doge’s flight from Venice with a mob at his heels, the short lived but violent Florentine...

Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth

The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth are a growing minor power in the world of Dystopian Wars.

In this blog we’re going to take a look at the new boxed sets for the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and some of the reasons why they are so feared across the battlefield! As fearsome a reputation as the fiery PLC has, let’s pause for a moment to take a closer look at some of the things we already...

Terran Alliance Core Helix

Terran Alliance Core Helix

With a Terran Core Helix Commanders will find themselves able to field a strong, durable force, capable of withstanding much of the punishment that other forces can dish out, before closing to the optimal range for their unforgiving weapons! The Vidar Heavy Tank exemplifies this strategy with a combination of M205 ‘Magellan’ Cannon and Hammerstrike Missile Systems. The Heavy Tank engages the enemy at range using its missiles until within optimum range to deliver the knockout blow with the M205 – a weapon known to strike...
