As we will be loosing the fellow I like to call Jeremy later in the year I thought we would
give him some sort of final fling...so lube up Mike...your up...
Seriously though, I propose to run a campaign weekend involving any who wish to participate.
Something uncomplicated and fast paced I reckon, sometime in late September or early October
and including Land as well as sea games. Maybe some Legion games as well...maybe...
I plan to run the event so that players who are only available for part of the time can
join in as much or as little as they wish.
Anything anyone would like to see, suggestions, thoughts or interest parties?
The setting is Bering Sea, Alaskan Coastline and the Aleutian Island chain, in summer.

This certainly piques my interest. I'm really liking DW 2.0, I need more games of it.

Maybe a teams thing would be cool. 8)
One team member attacking another teams stuff while
the other team member defends their teams stuff from
other teams attackers.
Might lead to some interesting scenarios.

Do any of them involve a mutated narwhal?

The legendary Sludgy will remain an option to those that wish to
risk enraging him, as is only right and just.

I am chasing up the dates at the moment but should be either weekends of
20/21 September or 4/5 October.
Details are as follows at this stage.
I would love to have enough players to run a pairs event, pairs should
consist of players using core fleets that are not enemies.
If the pairs thing dosn't work out we will run a standard event - no worries.
Players who are unable to play the entire weekend will be permitted
to join in as much or as little as they wish, I have some sneaky plans
to deal with this. :twisted:
Fleets are 1100 points total, easily catered for in the new rules.
The first 700 points must be spent in full on Naval models from your
own nation/fleet list only...no Non Naval, Mercs, Allies etc etc
Min 1 Small, 1 Medium and 1 large/Massive - but Max 2 Large/Massive/Battle Cruisers
The remaining 400 points can be spent on anything else you wish
incl Allies, Flyers, Mercs, Merchant Vessels...no Large or Massive vessels
or Fortifications in this force please.
Thoughts, Interest or Ideas anyone

As this is just a fun muck around weekend, I see no problem with unpainted models.
If we do the the pairs thing, I am happy to put people into a pair if they
don't have a partner, I just need to know the details.
It appears we have some interest in Land, Air and Legions.
Any-one interested in playing these formats should let me know so that I can adjust the Fleet restrictions
as required.

Whether you are playing Grand Coalition, Imperial Bond or Neutral
The other member of your team
If you are able to play all weekend or not
Which of the following types of Fleet you are interested in playing (as many as you want)
- Naval Core

I will be putting the list of nations that can ally up here and on the Face book
sites in the next day or so, so that people can organize their pairs.
The sooner I get the names in, the sooner I can prepare the territories that
are being fought over.
The sooner you enter, the better your territories are likely to be as my
imagination has its limits...not to mention my model collection.
Anyone without a partner can still enter and I can pair people up with
a suitable match.
As this is just a fun weekend, no prizes will be given, no points will be
allocated for winning and loosing. I encourage you all to take fun fleets.

Hi Every-one
Here are the details for the up-coming Dystopian Wars campaign weekend.
As this is just a Shits and Giggles event there will be no scoring, win bonuses or prizes.
Results will be tallied to decide the winning faction.
Unpainted models are allowed, as are suitable conversions and stand ins.
I have ditched the pair’s thing as this was causing a bit of hassle, instead we will be
playing Imperial Bond v Grand Coalition v Neutrals/Mercs.
I am still up for some Legions games if there are enough willing players, but I need to
know soon.
Grand Coalition Nations include
Britannia, FSA, Russia, Canada, Royal Australia, India (if released)
Polish-Lith Comm, East India Coy, Eclipse Coy.
Imperial Bond Nations include
Prussia, Blazing Sun, France, Chinese, Denmark, Ottomans
Italians, Wani, Black Wolf Coy
Neutral Nations can include
Cov of Antarctica, Free Aust, Ottomans, Italians
Black Wolf Coy, East India Coy, Eclipse Coy

Fleets (Naval, Land or Air) are 1100 points total, easily catered for in the new rules.
The first 700 points must be spent in full on Core models from your
own nation/fleet list only...no Non Core, Mercs, Allies, Fortifications etc etc
Min 1 Small, 1 Medium and 1 large/Massive - but Max 2 Large/Massive/Battle Cruisers
The remaining 400 points can be spent on anything else you wish
incl Allies, Non Core, Mercs, Merchant Vessels...no Large or Massive vessels
or Fortifications in this force please.
Any Nation may take Mercenaries, Merchant Vessels or Allies
as part of their 400 point lists.

When you enter I need to know whether you are playing for the Imperial Bond, Grand Coalition, or Neutrals/Mercs factions and if you want to play with Land, Naval and/or Air fleets.
Entrants need to contact me by 28 September please, either by E-mail, Facebook, Text or via the South Island forums (pm me)

A background story will be published soon.
