A while back I got a hold of a Blazing Sun Navy starter set. Over Easter I managed to get it painted. I was surprised at how quick it all came together. I started these to celebrate getting 6 points of Saga Vikings completed. I had no idea really how I wanted it all to turn out so armed with only a vague idea of Green flyers and Greyish blueish ships. I grabbed a Vallejo Luftwaffe Uniform paint that I didn't have in my collection and used that for the base colour of the ships after a spray of black. I wet drybrushed London Grey on top. Khaki for decking and Brown Shade wash.
What helped I think was I purposely did not explore the net and build a mental knowledge of how others had approached Dystopian toys. I just made decisions quickly and got on with it. They turned out a bit like the painted ones on the cover of the box they came in but that was not my intention. I may go and gloss varnish the windows to give them yet another element of interest.
I don't like the idea of these ships moving around a chipboard wood surface so I went and had a look at what could be used at Spotlight store. The place where ya Nana shops for material to make a new outfit. I came across a PVC material that was not super shiny and had a bit of texture as you can see the images below. The photography of these actually came out as not a very good reflection of how they look in real life. A combination of the really small scale and maybe the colours and my average miniature photography skills. It's proving to be a popular game at my local club here in Darwin. It is very collectable with each faction having a big variety in army choice options. Dang! Perfect for gamer A.D.D.
