Dystopian Wars

Another steampunk wargame, this one involving ships, always liked ship based warhames(played alot of Battlefleet Gothic and Pirates of the Burning Sea in college)

the model’s look pretty good, even if I wasn’t interested in the game, I’d get them just for display:

    I have only experienced a miniature conflict simulation once, nossir, doan like it. Still, there is the draw of three dimensional steampunk. Hmm, w’t there one called Space 1888 or some such a decade or so ago?

    I’ve heard of that one. The wiki page on it is informative.

    I remember creating a campaign for D&D that was set in the period too. It was a good run and we were still playing it from time to time when the group broke up. It was inspired by Space 1889 and was heavily influenced by it and early science-fiction.

      Ah, thanks for the link. Bit of a sentimental inquiry.  I recall good old GDW very well, but only owned Traveller. My friend owned some of the Europa games (hmmmm, Europa, sounds kinda steampunkish from the get go!).  There is parlor game on fine paper stock called Mission: Red Planet which is certainly of interest of those with our discriminating tastes.

         I’ll have to look into it sometime, before hearing about Dystopian Wars, most my steampunk tabletop gaming experience was limited to an all too breif run playing a steampunk setting in GURPS, (and technically Warhammer 40k, as I seemed to play against an austrailian with Preatorian Imperial Guard frequently) hadn’t even heard of Space: 1899 until a year or two ago

    Y’know, it would not be very difficult at all to set up a kind of Tabletop War in New Babbage.  Herbert George Wells, after all, was the first to set down wargame rules, was he not?
