Dystopian Wars - Part 7 - Draw me like one of your french girls Jack.

The unsung heroes of any world war tend to be Merchant/Convoy Fleets. Without the tireless efforts of these supporting personnel the big cannons of the Dreadnoughts would not fire, the marines would have no bullets and the great Airships would not be able to take to the skies. But be warned, this is no soft target. With the addition of the Hermes Class Q-ship, a seemingly unarmed Merchantman will quickly become a heavily armed Cruiser, ready to defend a convoy and sink unsuspecting foes in a hail of shells and torpedoes. The contents of this boxed set and ideal for creating your own scenarios and objective-based games.

Contains: 2 x Apollo Class Support Carriers, 1 x Titan Class Troop Ship, 3 x Oil/Weapon Rigs and 6 x Medium Merchantmen. Models unpainted and unassembled.

Dystopian Wars - Part 6 - There's something under the water.

Inside this box is a Prussian Empire Wolf Pack Flotilla. Combining the well-tried power of Tesla weaponry with the new concept of submarine warfare, the mighty Sturmbringer Class Submarine mounts a fearsome new bombardment weapon which hurls warheads primed to explode with devastating electrical shockwaves. In turn the Donnerfaust Support Cruiser houses ranks of lethal Speerschleuder harpoon launchers, while flights of Zerstörers pepper targets with clusters of charged Speerschleuder darts.

Team Yankee West Germans Part 2

Well, were back with an update on the West Germans.  They were primed with Army Painter Green and allowed to dry completely before busting out the airbrush to paint the camouflage pattern on them.  I was able to pick up the Battlefront paint set for almost half off during "Black Friday" sales.  Wish I bought more as the new bottle are much smaller and the paint goes quickly in the airbrush.

Bolt Action Finnish

    Well, they're finally done and can be shown.  This will be a brief showing and review of my 28mm Finnish Bolt Action Army.  I've yet to play a game of Bolt as we've recently started collecting, but I'm excited to throw these on the table.

Dystopian Wars - Part 5 - Arghhh we be pirates.

"Inside this box is a Prussian Empire Raider Flotilla. A Raider Flotilla adds an almost unstoppable left-hook to any Prussian Naval Fleet, bringing with it a multitude of fast moving, well-armed warships of all shapes and sizes. Whether advancing with the rest of the fleet or adding a supporting flank charge to a main advance, these Raiders make a great contribution to the Prussian war effort."  - Dystopian Wars Website

I see this box set being used as a small escort chasing down the stragglers of a fleet left over from an initial engagement or even dealing with coastal disputes of commerce and inspections.
