Wow, the Spartan Games newsletter has hit inboxes with some amazing new stuff available for preorder! This month we have the Chinese Federation, a force to be reckoned with!
From the newsletter:
The Chinese Federation has always been one of the larger Alliance Nations in Dystopian Wars but, as the World War escalates, so the Emperor has commanded his Generals to strike out, showing the world the true power of this oriental giant.
A such, new Naval forces have been created, Defensive groups look to defend the homeland, Armoured forces roll across battlefields, Aerial forces harass the enemy and, perhaps most terrifying of all, the new Suppression Groups strike fear into the hearts of their enemies.
Chinese Federation Naval Battle Group
As the Dao Class Cruisers, Yue Destroyers and Nu Class Frigates form up around their Jian Class Battleship, a Chinese Federation fleet takes the appearance of a castle floating on the high-seas. Hulls plated in armour of extraordinary resilience, sacrificing speed in favour of incredible durability, the fleet advances on the enemy.
Chinese Federation Armoured Battle Group
With its seas and air protected, the Imperial Armies of the Emperor are now striking out with vast armoured forces that crush all before them. Central to an Armoured Battle Group is the Shénlóng Land Assault Carrier with its complement of 18 Small Air Wings (SAW) – but this is only the beginning of this nation’s ground dominance. Next up we have the Shi Medium Robots; modelled on ceremonial ‘Temple Dogs’, these robotic beasts tear the enemy apart with tooth and claw. The Chao Feng Bombards and Chiwen Medium Tanks provide the Medium Support to their larger cousins, whilst the Yazi Small Tanks and Fúshī Small Robots (modelled on ancient Terracotta Warriors) bring a combination of short range gunnery and lethal close quarters into the face of the enemy.
Chinese Federation Aerial Battle Group
The Emperor’s Aerial forces anchor around the Feilong Sky Fortress, a true feat of oriental engineering. The Feilong is a Massive Class model and on the battlefield its imposing size is only matched by its serene elegance.
Chinese Federation Defence Group
The Chinese Federation’s Zhanmadao Class Dreadnoughts are a wondrous sight to behold – sprawling castles bedecked in oriental decoration, held high above the earth or waves on thrumming repulsion engines. All are fitted with the innovative Jiu Long Bi generator, creating a wall of energy that stretches between the two Dun Class Floating Bastions, providing Chinese Fleet Commanders not only with immense firepower, but protection for their other vessels.
Chinese Federation Suppression Group
Chinese Federation Generals were the first to coin the term ‘Suppression Groups’ in military actions, and the name was initially used to describe the punishing combination of a Tiān Lóng Armoured Dragon Robot and Liuxang Class Air Bombards.The Dragon can literally rain down destruction using Flame and Rockets before grabbing larger prey in a vice like grip that spells death to the Emperor’s enemies.
Wow! The Chinese Federation have arrived, and in a big way! The new armoured models look amazing, including the Temple Dogs and Terracotta Warriors!
The Suppression Group looks equally terrifying with the wonderful dragon we’ve seen pictures of before. These are amazing models, with an astounding and individual aesthetic. Great job Spartan!
