Assault on Gibraltar
May 9th 1872, Britannian Gibraltar
On April 21st 1872, KonteradmiralKarloff Von Rosntenberger, officer of the Prussian Imperial Mediterranean Sea Iron Fleet, received reports that the Britannian Military had left the Royal Navy yard at Gibraltar and the Rock itself without adequate protection, in their attempt to dislodge the Imperial Bond from it's positions of power in the Med.
Without the permission and support of his superiors, he spoke with Captain-Brother Thadeus Kröeler of the Teutonic Order to loan him a quad of the Teutonic's Metzger AUSF Battle Robots to assist in the assault and garrison of Gibraltar, as he had no troop carriers available to him, the Knights on board the Battle Robots would have to do until such time as assistance could be received from Prussia and his superiors. The Knights would have to hobble the robots weapon systems to allow for increased speed and manoeuvrability to keep up with the mighty ships of the Iron fleet.
The Admiral on-board his flag ship Weser, an Elbe class Fleet Carrier, left the port of Rabat and headed north towards the Rock, where the battlegroup Brandon, under the command of Rear Admiral Sir Patrick O'Neill and Rear Admiral Lachlan MacTavish's Battlegroup Robert of the Royal Navy's Med fleet were stationed, and where Vice Admiral Sir Justin Smalling-Bryce's flagship, the Majesty class dreadnought Perecles was sat in port under repair.
Heavy fog for the week leading up to the attack hid the coming assault from the Britannian officers as their patrols away from Gibraltar were limited. But on the day of the attack the fog lifted and O'Neil and MacTavish's Battlegroups sailed towards the Prussian fleet with purpose and determination as the Perecles scrambled to action stations.
Imagine 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 is set in a Victorian Steampunk world and we have designed the rules 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.
Today's Game is between the two biggest rivals in the game, the Imperial bond's leaders The Prussian Empire and the Grand Coalition's Kingdom of Britannia.
