This hopefully gives you an idea of how the models go together.

The basic corporation marines boxed sets come with three special weapons -Top right.

Officer options include powerfist and pistol.

The main difference with regard to posability between these and GW Imperial Guard is the fact that Cadian Shock troops have separate legs and torsos.

However, the sculpts are really nice and they are of course considerably cheaper than Imperial Guard.

Dystopian WarsImagine a world similar to our own, but subtly different. Now imagine the year is 1870 and the Industrial Revolution occurred decades earlier than in our own world. Technology is far advanced, and in many cases, unrecognisable, which has led to the development of fantastic naval vessels, hulking land ships and terror from the skies in the form of airships and war balloons.

The Dystopian Wars game, from Spartan games, is set in a Victorian Steampunk world and the rules have been designed to ensure a fun game with a large selection of high quality models in a couple of hours. The rules support Naval, Aerial and Land models from the outset, so that you can set up battles and scenarios in any combat setting. Dystopian Wars features highly detailed resin and pewter miniatures with which you can roam the high seas, scour the smog filled skies looking for enemy flying ships, or doggedly defend the cities and countryside of your home nation using giant Land Ships.

Spartan Games’ fast play rules are optimised for large fleet actions, so you can get as many miniatures on the table as you want, and still finish an enjoyable game in an afternoon or evening. Dystopian Wars is also ideal for multiplayer games, because you get to activate individual squadrons of miniatures from one player to the next. The rules allow for the use of a deck of 52 Game Cards that add an exciting Fog of War element to each game.

You command one of the great imperial powers of Dystopian Wars, you can choose to defend your territories from foreign incursion, or you can conquer the world. The choice is yours…

Dystopian Wars is being released on 24th November 2010, if you order by midnight on 23rd November you will save 20% off RRP.
