Dystopian Wars Mercenary Painting Progress

Prior to the arrival of the Lion Rampant rules I started work on addition to my Dystopian Wars forces. I decided to start an alternate force from my Blazing Sun fleet and looked at the Mercenary forces. I started with a Black Wolf box and after looking at the rules they can have access to a Landing Strip fortification. It functions like a Carrier except it can't move. They can be placed on the Ocean surface like a giant oil drilling platform. After taking a while in deciding a suitable layout I glued the buildings on the big clear plastic deck then sprayed black. The set actually comes with two bases so another one is now in the 'round-to-it' file.You get a good variety of detailed buildings including two really big towers but I only plan to place one on the next platform. The air strip has some etched markings that I used for painting the runway markings.

The eight small Black Wolf ships became tests for a colour scheme I had in mind and this is reflected in the airstrip base. I am also working on a East India Trading Company Merchant fleet as well in the same dark colour scheme. The idea of course is for them to form one combination force of The Black Wolf Vodka and East India Pale Ale fleet.  
Just two quick pics I took on my painting table. When I have some more completed I will take some more pics with them on an ocean surface rather than making waves across my table.
Cheers from Brendon (The Kiwi)
