Dystopian Legions is up for pre-order, with what looks to be an amazing two-player boxed set, Codename: Iron Scorpion…

Codename Iron Scorpion
(Dystopian Legions Two Player Starter Set)
Set in the hot sands of North Africa, our new Dystopian Legions Starter Set is crammed full of models and scenery. And when we say crammed… we mean crammed. 40 highly detailed models and modular scenery accompany our new full colour Version 2.0 Dystopian Legions Rulebook.

The ideal springboard for two players wishing to immerse themselves in the world of Dystopian Legions.

Let’s take a closer look at what you get in this amazing box:

Covenant of Antarctica Forces
21 CoA Models: 6 x Commandos, 10 x Automata Robots, 1 x Monique Dubois Scientist, 1 x Officer, 3 x Drone Skimmers and Flight Stands.

Republique of France Forces
19 French Models: 6 x Armoured Marines, 8 x Legionnaires, 1 x Legion HMG team (2 figures & Gun), 1 x Veronique Dubois Medic, 1 x Officer.

Other Materials
1 x Full Colour Rulebook.
1 x A5 Scenario Book that allows players to re-enact the tense struggle between the forces in Codename Iron Scorpion.

Dystopian Legions Core Rulebook
Having already established a range of high quality miniatures, it was time to deliver a core set of rules that hammered home just how exciting Platoon level action can be in a Dystopian Wars world. With version 2.0 of the Legions game rules we’ve created a more streamlined engine, added improved army lists and force building, enhanced command and control, new Ironclad rules, and set the scene for fun Platoon level gaming.


And as if that wasn’t enough! Our first boxed sets sold will include a superb, limited edition Covenant War Master Maximillian Schneider miniature and custom base AND two stunning prints of the Dubois Sisters. But act quickly, this deal is only on the first orders for this exciting Two Player Boxed Set.
Wow!
I’ve had a chance to take a sneak peek at the new Dystopian Legions rules, and all I can say is that I’m excited! Finally this game is getting the big release we’ve been waiting for, and I don’t think people will be disappointed!
Head over to the Spartan Store for preorders…

Also die Box finde ich schon sehr schick - es gibt nur ein Problem: Sie kommt sehr aus der Luft. Aktuell hat Spartan sehr viel Werbung für Planetfall gemacht und ich spare jetzt mein Hobbygeld vor allem darauf, dafür werde ich Dystopian Legions eben links liegen lassen müssen.

Aber die Modelle sind in jedem Fall schick, vor allem die Franzosen gefallen mir, sowohl die gepanzerte Infanterie wie die normalen Legionäre. Vor allem die Mini-Hitzelanzen der Armoured Marines sind sehr passend für die Fraktion.
Die Antarktiker sind aber auch gut, mit gefallen nur die Helme der Commandos auch nicht so, die etwas zu sehr an James Bond typische Schergenkluft erinnern.

wenn ich Gegner hätte wäre ich dabei ein paar Figuren hab ich ja schon.
aber da wir schon DW und FSA spielen bezweifle ich mal das sich viele finden.

Und Planetfall ist reizvoller wenn das diese Jahr ncoh erscheint dann eher Aquans für planetfall.

On the back of the Dystopian Legions V2 release comes the Infantry sections to bulk out the models from Iron Scorpion. The Covenant get their Commandos and Automata while France has their Legionaries and Armoured Marines.
An Officer Pack is also available with the Core Rulebook, templates and counters.

An FAQ has been posted for Dystopian Legions!

Spartan have announced it through a blog post ---> you can find ere

And you can find the FAQ in the downloads section of the Spartan Games website here



[HR][/HR]




[HR][/HR]
We have started work on our ‘Sidekick’ sculpts for Dystopian Legions and we’ll
be rolling them out for you to look at in our lead up to Christmas. First up is
Betty, the adorable sidekick of Captain Smethington DFC, the famed aerial flying
ace of the Kingdom of Britannia.

As you can see, Betty is all about her
looks on the gaming table and for those of you who have downloaded the KoB
Statistics you will see that she has the special rule ‘Hold That Pose’ which is
all about inspiring the men (and Bertie) into action…..

Werner Hahl has been teased on the Spartan Facebook page, with his faithful pet…

Next up in our parade of Sidekicks is Werner Hahl and his faithful Glücklich. Blown up in the same explosion as the one that ripped his master apart, Glücklich was simply too good a dog to let die. So the cream of Prussian scientists (and vets!) worked tirelessly to save his life.
He is now a symbol of the Prussian Empire’s fighting spirit and doggedness (see what we did there…) to never give in….

Die Neuerscheinungen sind wahrscheinlich nur für dle Leute mit den alten Starterboxen eher Nachteilhaft, weil dort ja schon Charactere wie Oberst Werner Hahl und Captain Smethington drin waren und ich nicht glaube, dass die Sidekicks einzeln angeboten werden.

Glücklich ist jedenfalls optisch ein ziemlich perverses Vieh, wenn man das so nennen kann :sleep:

DLKB41 Kingdom of Britannia Infantry Officer Set
The Kingdom of Britannia has territories spread across the globe, and is an Empire unlike any seen before. If you ask at the local gentleman?s club as to why this is, it will be explained it is because of the courage of men and the superiority of the officers.
Infantry Officers are the backbone of every army; whether operating on their own or with a select section of guards, their insight, experience, courage and ability is so often the difference between victory and defeat! The fine men and women that make up the Officer Corps of the Kingdom of Britannia are almost universally drawn from aristocratic stock.
Contains: 2 Infantry Officers, 5 Line Infantry, 1 Musician and a deck of Tactical Action Cards. Models supplied unpainted and unassembled.

DLKB42 Kingdom of Britannia Lineman Infantry Set
The Kingdom of Britannia is renowned for the discipline and training of its forces, and its ground forces most especially for their ability to maintain a steady stream of fire even under the most difficult of circumstances.
A backbone of hardy professional Line Infantry makes up the Britannian core forces. These riflemen are a mixture of well-trained professional soldiers and highly motivated volunteers. The Britannian infantry has a formidable reputation for marksmanship, being able to put out as much firepower with their single-shot Martini-Metfords as other soldiers can with repeating weapons.
Contains: 1 NCO and 10 Linemen. Models supplied unpainted and unassembled.

DLKB43 Kingdom of Britannia Line Infantry Expansion Set
From the steady drum beat of the Musician, to the heat and destruction of the MkII Flamethrower, or the terrifying Nordenfeldt MkV HMG, the Kingdom of Britannia is ready to take the field!
This boxed set is designed to be used in conjunction with the Kingdom of Britannia Linemen Section Box, and allows both boxes in concert to create any of the backbone Sections of a Kingdom of Britannia army, from Battle Line Sections, to Assault Sections, to HMG Sections and Support Sections.
Vital in maintaining discipline, and providing leadership and courage, the NCO, especially when supported by a Musician, is often the backbone of a Section, able to maintain the line in the face of deadly assault, or leading by example as the Section charges forward. The Brunel-Nordenfelt is a piece of engineering renowned across the world for its extreme range and withering firepower. A multi-barrelled volley gun with a thick gun shield to protect its valuable crew, this HMG exemplifies the sturdy, reliable nature of Britannian design.
Reasoning that a sheet of flame is one of the best ways of making sure the enemy stays well away, engineer Sydney Haskins of the Royal Ordnance Works perfected his flamethrower design with the Mark III. It is nicknamed the ?Ricardo? after his Italian-born engineering assistant, who had the unenviable task of live-testing Haskin? designs! The Mark III was a resounding success, and was quickly issued to the Britannian infantry regiments. In battle, the flamethrower operators shelter amid the ranks of the riflemen.
Contains: 1 NCO, 3 MkIII Flamethrower Specialists, 1 Musician Attachment and 3 Heavy Machine Gun teams. Models supplied unpainted and unassembled.

DLKB44 Kingdom of Britannia Heroes of the Empire Set
The Heroes of the Empire are the stalwart men and women who inspire the nation. Poems are written in their honour, songs sung, and stories told. Grizzled veterans or daring soldiers, they have risen through their own genius to the greatness of ?hero? Long may they serve the Empire, long may they inspire the people, and long may they stand to give the enemy a damned good thrashing! The Kingdom of Britannia Heroes of the Empire Box includes the following miniatures:
Colonel Sinjon Hector ?Big? MacDonald and Jenkins ? Colonel MacDonald is an institution in his own right; a feared general of the Kingdom of Britannia. Although technically retired, ?Big? MacDonald was offered a front line commission because his bulldog spirit and ferocity couldn?t be confined to a General Staffing position. Riding in his specially constructed armoured wheelchair, Colonel MacDonald is often flanked by his loyal Black Watch, and always accompanied by his Gentlemen?s Gentleman: Jenkins.
Jenkins, for his part, is a collected and calm reflection of MacDonald?s explosive image, and equally as responsible for the Colonel?s oeuvre. A true gentleman?s gentleman, Jenkin?s is the subject of awe among even MacDonald?s Blackwatch. As calm as MacDonald is fiery, and less perturbed by a rocket barrage exploding nearby, as he decants his master?s single malt, than he is by besmirched uniform, the two make a truly fearsome partnership.
Captain Gilbert ?Bertie? Smethington and Betty ? There are few individuals that can flounce around the battlefield and back it up with the sort of daring-do that makes Robin Hood?s adventures seem like a musty dull tome. Tales of his exploits are legend even before his bullet-ridden plane lands, and the daring, dashing heroism they speak of is never anything short of a buttock-clenching roller-coaster of excitement, danger and thrills. He writes his own adventure story, and it?s written with a pen most titans would struggle to wield.
Accompanying Bertie on his adventures is the equally enchanting Betty, appointed by the war-office as a writer to journal this great hero?s exploits she has seen more than her fair share of action, and her correspondence detailing their escapades has become a staple of bed stands and side tables everywhere in the kingdom. If Bertie is a dashing hero the nation can aspire to, Betty is the artist that has framed his glory, and citizens the Britannian Empire over hang on her every word, waiting between instalments for the latest great adventure.

DLPE41 Prussian Empire Infantry Officer Set
The mighty Prussian Empire is a powerhouse of Europe, with an army and navy rightly feared across the world. Famous for its deadly assault troops, the Prussian land army is terrifying to behold and a perfectly honed machine of war.
Infantry Officers are the backbone of every army; whether operating on their own or with a select section of guards, their insight, experience, courage and ability is so often the difference between victory and defeat!
With their ability to inspire the men to greater speed as they close with the enemy, or issue a range of orders for which the men and women under their command have drilled to perfection, they are able to leverage the deadly efficiency and reputation of the Prussian army.
Prussian Sections are also regularly seen with attached field medics, brave individuals whose experience in patching anything from a powder burn to a vicious bayonet wound has meant the difference between life and death for many a Prussian soldier!
Contains: 2 Infantry Officers, 5 Grenadiers, 1 Medic and a deck of Tactical Action Cards. Models supplied unpainted and unassembled.

DLPE42 Prussian Empire Grenadier Infantry Set
The Prussian Empire is feared for the bravery and quality of its soldiers. Regarded as among the best of the world?s infantry, Prussian Line Sections are made up of soldiers respected for their accuracy, and especially feared for their ferocity in close combat!
Prussian Grenadiers are typically equipped with the reliable M69 Rifle, a solid and reliable small arm that sees wide use in the Prussian army, a good performer at short range, but still able to fire a deadly volley at distance.
Prussian Grenadiers, typically burly men and women with a proud Germanic heritage, are renowned for their ability and ferocity in melee, and a charging Section of Prussian Grenadiers with their iconic double-bayonet are enough to strike a chill into the heart of any enemy.
Contains: 1 NCO and 10 Grenadiers. Models supplied unpainted and unassembled.

DLPE43 Prussian Empire Grenadier Infantry Expansion Set
From Vierling wielding specialists, to gritty NCOs, dangerous heavy machine gun teams and skilled field medics, the Prussians are an individual and formidable force on the battlefield!
This boxed set is designed to be used in conjunction with the Prussian Grenadier Section Box, and allows both boxes in concert to create any of the backbone Sections of a Prussian army, from Battle Line Sections, to Assault Sections, to HMG Sections and Support Sections. Vital in maintaining discipline and providing leadership and courage, the NCO is able to maintain the line in the face of deadly assault.
The multi-barrelled Vierling is a weapon of perfect Prussian engineering, and capable of throwing out a staggering amount of firepower. The men and women who wield these are especially trained to do so, and do so with deadly effect.
Prussian Sections are also regularly seen with attached field medics, brave individuals whose experience in patching anything from a powder burn to a vicious bayonet wound has meant the difference between life and death for many a Prussian soldier.
The unrelenting, thunderous retort of the Maschinengewehr ?64 provides continuous fire support for the hammer strikes of the Prussian Grenadiers. Highly efficient at carving through swathes of infantry, these Maschinengewehr ?64s can cover the Grenadiers as they swarm forward to decisively eradicate the foe. Any enemy who risk emerging to deal with the oncoming infantry will be cut down in short order.
Contains: 1 NCO, 3 Vierling Specialists, 1 Medic Attachment and 3 Heavy Machine Gun teams. Models supplied unpainted and unassembled.

DLPE44 Prussian Empire Heroes of the Empire Set
The Heroes of the Empire are the stalwart men and women won inspire the nation. Poems are written in their honour, songs sung, and stories told. Grizzled veterans or daring soldiers, they have risen through their own genius to the greatness of ?hero?. Long may they serve the Empire, long may they inspire the people, and long may they stand to give the enemy a damned good thrashing! The Prussian Empire Heroes of the Empire Set includes the following miniatures:
Oberst Werner Hahl and Gluklich ? Rarely has the battlefield been graced by such a true artist of combat, a ferocious enemy to all those who would dare to stand against the might of the Prussian Empire. A brilliant commander of men, tireless and brave, Oberst is a firm believer in leading from the front. Seriously wounded in a violent explosion that lost him his arm, and the hind quarters of his faithful pet Gluklich, Oberst is now even more a terrifying opponent, able to smash his enemies, and even tear enemy Ironclads to pieces. Accompanied by his faithful pet Gluklich, mascot of the Grenadier Sections that serve loyally under Oberst, he is truly an enemy to be feared.
Gluklich, from his early days as a puppy, had a special place in the heart of his mighty owner and the men and women who served under him. Torn to pieces by the explosion that forever changed his master, Gluklich was lovingly tended and repaired with the latest technologies Prussian scientists could manage. If he was a deadly hound before, like his master, he has only increased in ferocity and power!
Professor Gustardt and Siegfried ? Brilliant engineer, inventor, scientist and polymath, Professor Gustardt has a special fascination for electricity. Responsible for countless improvements to the tesla weaponry of the Prussians, Gustardt became obsessed with the potential of utilising Tesla weaponry to dominate the land war. To that effect he has experimented with his own special creations ? the Telsa Gauntlets, a weapon of terrifying potential, both for the wearer and the enemy. Blessed as it seems with more lives than a litter of kittens, Gustardt has endured more electrical shocks than anyone still standing, and what?s more, he claims it hasn?t affected him at all!
Siegfried is the ever faithful servant of Gustardt. Handling the controls of the Amplified Stabilisation Actuator, he provides his master with the surges in power he demands. With a slight limp, and a fear of anything that explodes with light and energy, Siegfried nonetheless toils after his master, and together they are capable of inflicting wanton damage on an unprecedented scale!

Da ich keinen besseren Platz für die Frage gefunden habe, stelle ich sie hier.

Ich bin an sich von Dystop.Legions sehr begeistert aber aufgrund Spielermangel ist das Fieber nie richtig ausgebrochen obwohl ich seit Jahren eine Armee im Schrank stehen habe. Im Moment hab ich wieder Lust an den Modellen weiterzumachen und will sogar eine weitere Armee fertigmachen. Wie sieht die Zukunft von DL aus? Gibt es Gerüchte oder gar Ausagen von SG wie es weiter geht. Im Netz hab ich keine aktuellen Infos dazu gefunden und die Releases von SG scheinen ihre Schwerpunkte auf allem möglichem haben aber kaum in DL. Dabei gab es schon vor Jahren schicke Modelle als Preview die nie erschienen sind. Dabei hat das Spiel so viel Potential.

Ich denke, dass sich Spartan mit all ihren Projekten etwas übernommen haben.
Da DL wohl nicht so läuft, scheint es etwas in Hintertreffen geraten zu sein.
