Yes, the naval line looks pretty much as before ( With some rather odd additions to styles ), but those 10mm vehicles are . . . Well, WWX is having an influence, let's say that.

A solid explanation of how the lines will progress has been made by Stauart, the Studio head at Warcradle today -

"I think it's important to acknowledge that visually the game is going to embrace and evolve the more outlandish concepts from second edition Dystopian Wars rather than keeping it in the could happen' vibe of the first edition. So more iceberg ships and robot dragons and less WWI German battleships. Our design team, while respectful of influences and inspiration found in the real world, are much more stylistically led rather than continuing the pseudo-historical feel of what went on before. For some that means the designs are going to be going in a direction that is not for them. The ships of the Dystopian Age are not ships you would honestly expect to find in real life (with or without Stirginium), but as playing pieces in a war game we want to make sure they are visually distinctive and exciting. In that regard Dystopian Wars will have much more in common with the design philosophies behind sci-fi and fantasy games like Warmachine than historical games like Flames of War."

So, make of that what you will

I feel conflicted.

I think that they may have lost me as a customer. I'll keep watching though for something useful other than robot dragons… that being said, Spartan was headed down the road of design silliness for a long time with the occasional foray into coolness. 😀
