So, it was up to the KoB to defend the poor islanders (fuzzie wuzzies couldn't defend their way out of a paper bag).
We played a 1000 point game of Dystopian Wars, we also used Tiny Fliers for the first time (we are learning rules as we go), and there was a carrier on either side.
The dastardly Prussian fleet included not only a Dreadnought class vessel (identification unknown) but also a lumbering red behemoth of a Sky Fortress, unleashing hordes of bombers from her decks. To be sure it was going to be a tough match!
Coming face to face with the Tesla coiled nose of the Prussian Sky Fortress! The fortress did eventually go down, to boarding in fact. Ironically all of the Prussian zepplins had a raging fire at one point or another- shouldn't that do bad bad things to a zepplin (ala Hindenburg?)
The final end for the Prussian Battleship (unidentified name), struck by British dive bombers and subjected to close range firepower from the battleship Achillies.
The game overall was a traditional Dystopian Wars slug fest. I was running around with far more little ships than Jason, but their capacity for damage is no where near enough to get damage done on his Dreadnought, which was ultimatly the only thing that for him, survived. The tiny tokens were fun, not game breaking, but certainly added some cool elements to the game. We will have to keep thinking about how they are used!
As for the Prussians. Well, they are NASTY! Fantastic boarding assaults causes real, real problems, especially for the Brittanians (we are bad at boarding). I think escorts will be the order of the day, extra Ack-Ack dice might work to even the odds slightly. The Prussian Sky Fortress is an absolute behemoth also, a mammoth construction of firepower and death- and cheaper than the KoB carrier (who is for all intents and purposes, worse).
But, in saying that, I do really like the Brittanians. The battleships and little vessels are great, super fun to run around with. Best described as a glass cannon, the KoB certainly CAN do the damage, it's just making sure they don't die in the process.
Apologies for it not being an "in character" report, I was feeling a bit put out- too much stuff dies in Dystopian Wars to really get a good character going!
Another game planned for tommorow night, against some different Prussians, perhaps Cooper will return for that?
