Say hello to Ajax

The first of my Dreadnoughts (yes I already have more than one!)

He makes no apologies for his patriotism

I've noticed some missed spots with the wash, easily fixed when I go over for some light weathering

As soon as I saw the new style paddle-wheels I knew what colour scheme I was going for, and I think the Red, White and Blue Rockets are a nice touch... :D

I'm quite proud of this one, its obviously painted to a gaming standard, with plenty of details to please the eye.

All I have to do now is work out how to neaten up the edges around the base of the model (I'm considering a thin white felt base which should fluff out of the sides slightly, giving a splashed wave effect around the ship) do a bit of weathering (running a bit of Gryphone Sepia wash around key areas to "rust up" the hull)

then crack on with the rest of the fleet, not to mention his brother...

From The Mists

Welcome to the Confederated Slates of Antarctica, My new log based in the Dystopian Wars universe.

My fleet has been growing in size rapidly, but my painting (As ever) has been slow to start.

This is my colour scheme which will be repeated across the fleet, White hull plates, wooden boardwalks, plenty of metallic steels, coppers and golds. Larger Ships will be decorated in a patriotic manner, as you will soon see on my current project.

The Airforce will be proudly painted in white with orange trimmings, with squadron leaders painted in bold orange all over, (Dukes of Hazard esque)

As of yet I haven't had a single game of Dystopian Wars, but as always, I'm looking to get a decently painted force on the table because for me, its all about the spectacle.

My intention is to build an impressive fleet of naval vessels, with a vast cloud of tiny fliers polluting the sky, buzzing between a few larger flying vessels such as airships, bombers and flying carriers.

Check back soon for some much (much much) larger vessels heading this way
