Ed came to the elegant abode the other evening for a game, his turn to pick our rules, so he chose Dystopian Wars. He used his Australian fleet, picking the rebels to try out the energy turret version, I used my American FSA. I have a basic boxed set fleet so we played at approx 800 points. I threw a few islands out to block line of sight and a little coral island in the centre to block movement but not line of sight or firing. We deployed a squadron at a time and started right away. We did not do a blow by blow write up, but took a few pictures as we went.

|The Oz fleet amid viennese whirl crumbs...|
|Some of the Australian heavier units|
|Collision alert- two Oz units come close as they move around an island.|
|First blood, an Australian frigate gones down|
|The FSA battleship with air support, 3 cruisers in the foreground.|
|A long shot of the board with coral island in the centre|
|The battleship carrying a lot of damage under attack by boarders.|
|My right flank struggling to land a blow|
|The FSA cruisers and bombers.|
|A failed attempt at dive bombing, as Ed gets lucky with AA|
Next game should be in a week or so, Rome vs Pyrrhus. Hopefully the dice Gods will smile...
