In this post, I unbox the Ice Maiden for Dystopian Wars. This new ship (and full Battlefleet) is the biggest release to date for Dystopian Wars since the Hunt for the Prometheus. With that out of the way, let’s take a closer look.
Special thanks goes out to Warcradle Studios for sending me this product for review.
The Ice Maiden Box Art
As with all of the products I received so far from Warcradle Studios, their packaging looks good.
On the back of the box, they show you exactly what is in there.
Unboxing the Ice Maiden
The cover slides off of the box. It is a sleeve. Underneath, we find a black box. Upon opening it, a number of sprues greet us.
Beauty Shots of the Ship
In this post, I am not building the ship. Instead, I show you what comes in the package. That said, I will show you some more pictures of this floating monstrosity.
Warcradle did a really nice job on this one.
Now, I want to show you the sprues that come with this ship.
In addition to the Ice Maiden, Warcradle packs in six other sprues into this boxed set.
And you get a second style of plastic frame in addition to the one above. You get three frames of each.
With the Sprues out of the way, let’s do some Dystopian Wars scale comparison images.
Dystopian Wars is a 1/1200 scale game. That said, let me show you a scale comparison image. Below is a size comparison of the Ice Maiden compared to some miniatures that likely everyone will know.
So, how big is the Ice Maiden versus other Dystopian Wars ships? Huge! Take a look at the pictures below to find out exactly how large it truly is.
Warcradle certainly made the Ice Maiden big compared to everything else they put out so far.

Wrapping it up…
Thank you for joining me in this unboxing post about the Dystopian Wars Ice Maiden. I found the miniature very impressive and look forward to building the set. Once I build them, I will showcase the fleet here on this site. Make sure to come back for more.
Value wise, I believe that this battlefleet is a good deal. It is right in line with the price of two squadrons of ships and a single battlefleet. That gets you a similar number of ships, but the Ice Maiden is way larger than any of the other flagships to date.
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
