Getting back into D-wars has reminded me how poorly the book is put together. That had me looking for a Quick Reference Guide. I dug up a spreadsheet for compiling forces... I've been listening to a podcast for a while... and I got to thinking we should have a gather it all together thread on WestGamer. So this is it..
if there was a previous one I couldn't find it on the first page of this forum

Quick Reference Sheet (Community Build)

Darkhorses Fleet Organisor (MS Excel)

Clockwerk Warriors (Podcast)

Redesigned Unit Cards

Island Maps thread

sculpting islands tutorial

Like a lot of starting out podcasts they start fired up about Dystopian Wars...
... then start talking about flames of war
... and then they get 3 mates on and spend half an episode talking about Heavy Gear
... then they record another episode with their mates, but lose the file
... and now they have added some structure and are ONLY talking Dystopian Wars

So the last couple have been good. I've picked up some pointers and tactics I just hadn't seen/realised reading the book.

So looking at building another couple of islands for D-wars and I found this thread on Spartans site.

Island Maps

Answers one of the questions I had, namely at 1/1200th scale can you build things... well to scale. I'd already worked out most runways would cover the length of table.

This map map of Christmas Island really drives it home. The little rectangular inset at the top of the map shows a 6x4 table in 1/1200th scale :shock:

Image

Here's another island from the thread scaled to a 6'x4' board. I like this one because I can see how you would be able to mix up land & sea forces.

Image

I also found this great tutorial on sculpting islands

And a bit of inspiration ;)

1/1200th yep. Thats what is says on the back of the rulebook ;)

I should be right for foam for this little project. Might grab it off you at some point though.

Edit: Expanding foam may be the greatest thing ever.

Stumbled on this list builder last night http://dwabo.nucreum.com/

All the fleet lists are preloaded, allows you to select any available options and then images it for you for printout. Had my RoF list to take on Hutch today in a matter of minutes.
