Great Nunnery of France:

- Girls with this kind of clothes
Image
and a gun like that:
Image
or
Image

- Assault Girls with some kind of "pilot" clothes:
Image
with an aviator hat:
Image
2 pistols:
Image
wings on the back to make them fly:
Image
Something that may look like that:
Image
- For support a giant steampunk spider like the WildWildWest one with a lot of lattice beams to remind the eiffel tower look:
Image


If you go with a US faction, some giant train engine would be very interesting, more than those steam wheel boats.
Image
- steamed horses may be replaced by steam powered bikes for the cavalry (Add a machine gun on top like WW1 planes):
Image
- infantry may use some hardened cowboys:
Image


I've few ideas for a center Africa faction with big steam animals:
- a big elephant that may carry soldiers or be a big support firing platform
Image
- rhinoceros:
Image
or like this
But I don't have many ideas for infantry, sorry.

My 2 cents ;)

Would Back to the Future style Deloreans for the American faction be going too far?

Our intention isn't to ape Dystopian Wars; We have our own quirky world and are building a game to play in it. If the miniatures can be used for other games, great, but that's not our primary aim.


Let's see... Germans (Prussians), British (Britannia), Confedratated States of America (Federated States of America). Yup! Totally unique! :whistle

Seriously, Dystopian didn't invent these ideas either; the concepts have been around for a very long time. Besides, it isn't like 40K. The universe is not at your disposal and the world is only so big and has only so many 'players'. I'm not suggesting anything other than making models that appeal to people. Dystopian picked those factions because of their broad base appeal. Adding the Americans, Japan, France, and Russia would pretty much include everything they currently have for sale except Antartica (which is distinctly Dystopian). Those countries would be fantastic inclusions because of the diversity of their styles and how the infantry and machines would look. And it's not like your plagiarizing (unless your own quirky world somehow has had these countries swallowed by molemen or nuked by Martians). :-*

I don't disagree that eventually it'd be nice to fill out the world with major national factions.

But I'd also like to continue to develop factions that don't have a counterpart in Dystopian Wars such as the Martians (especially, as mentioned above, it's been the Martians that have shifted the most sales so far, equaling the other two factions in blisters sold).

Side note - We've been developing T300 since before DW was revealed to the public, it's just taken a long time for us to get a critical mass of funding and sculpts done to launch the range, as well as a couple of false starts with different designs and production methods.

Yes. :-)

As it happens, I just wrote a new HGW note for the American section of the rulebook:

A trip to 1885 Hill Valley has convinced me that there are certainly other chrono-manipulators at work in the time-streams. Great Scott, I do not wish to go back to that future!

Yes! Perhaps their standard tank could be this...

What about U.S.A.R. (Union of Soviet Anti-Socialist Republic), steam powered maxim machine guns, hordes of troops, multi-barrelled artillery that use's a boiler to power the shells. Horse mounted kosaks perhaps..

Americans can have steam powered, armor plated model A's for weapons platforms. And steam horses for fast attack cavalry.
