It's been a bit of a nautical theme recently. Easter weekend was playing Battleships with my daughter. I went and saw the movie of the same name. On ANZAC day after watching the parade in the city we went down and had a tour on a US Navy guided missile cruiser the USS Halsey. That was really interesting. It wasn't planned it was just the way things happened. On the painting table I have been splashing paint on new additions to my Empire of the Blazing Sun toys for the Dystopian Wars game (even more nautical activity).
I acquired a Robot Submersible Squid last Sunday and really looked forward to painting it. It is just such a mad creation. Here it is below before I gloss varnish it.
The pack comes with a submerged model as well as the surface attack version. I tried laying down German Uniform Fieldgray and a blue mix as well before highlighting with Brass. I did a little Brown Shade wash in joints as well. I like the result and it didn't take overly long to complete.
Below is all the 'Tiny Flyer Tokens'. The starter box came with 10. I then acquired 6 more with the Navy Carrier then 6 more with the Flying Carrier. I painted 2 in different colours to be Recon flyers. Max size for Tiny Flyer Squadrons is 5.
Here he is with 3 Escort ships, a Robot Squid and some tiny flyers. 2 images because one was taken with flash and one was without flash. It makes the colours a lot different.
I recently got my first game in. Only 400 points max so ended up with a very small force but it was fun and interesting. I also got to play on Phils awesome hex resin ocean table. I didn't get any pics but will try to get some in the future. I am looking forward to the next game.
Anyway cheers for now from Brendon (The Kiwi)
