As mentioned last time, this week I will lay out for you the contents of a Faction Box, looking at the ship cards and models that will be available in a box. The exact contents may still change but this should provide a clear idea of what you will get from a box.
For this dive we will be looking at the German Faction Box, one of the factions not present during the initial run of Leviathans.
The German box will have these three ships as miniatures. There will be 1 battleship, 1 cruiser and 2 destroyers, the same as the original Faction Boxes. Each ship will come with a base and stand, as well as tokens to distinguish between the different ships when using the same miniature, like when using both the destroyers. These 4 ships will give you a complete Leviathans experience.
First thing to note is that we are making some changes to the look so I’m just using the playtest files for now. They will of course look much prettier at the Kickstarter.
The German destroyers cover a wide range of strategies from firepower to coordination. However, the real standout ship of this group is the Wolve. As discussed in a previous article, this ship is built with the sole purpose of protecting larger ships at the expense of any real offensive power.
The German cruisers are great examples of their love of armor above speed. The Hannover is a very simple German workhorse, where as the Lubeck brings some coordinated fire options with its Bracketing crew, similar to the Falke.
The SML Wilhelm has exactly one purpose, and that is to take the entire firepower of an enemy fleet without dropping out of the sky. Almost unable to turn without its steering gear on either side, this ship as truly a flying brick.
There is one last Battleship but I will save that to share for later. Got to keep some things for the Kickstarter after all.
That’s it for this week. Next week will be the French fleet.
See you all then
