Painted Dystopian Mercenary Fleet (lots of pics)

Finally. Pleased to say I have now completed painting my two mercenary fleets for Dystopian Wars. The Black Wolf and East India Merchant Company box sets and an Air base as well. I have not added up the game points worth but usually the sets are around 800-900 points each. Plenty of options for creating a force from. I did buy a second large Black Wolf submersible in addition to the box sets though.





Black Wolf ships including surface skimming ships with Mini Subs ready to drop into the sea.

Double Trouble! Two Black Wolf Submersibles with support skimmers.

Hanging around the air base. Spot the Tiny Flyer Ace.
Nice detail underneath that won't be seen in games like the small fighter ready to drop into the polluted skies.
I took the photos with an iphone in the backyard in the shade. Blue appears to be a colour that digital photography can go a bit silly with. I certainly won't win any miniature photography awards. :)

Painting them all Panzer Grey with a London Grey (Vallejo) dry brush was my idea to make them all look aligned to the same flag. The Red was inspired from the painted example on the Black Wolf box cover. Spartan Games has a Heavy Bomber flyer for a future release but no date as yet so that is really the only future purchase for this force. Very happy to get this completed so I can start my next 28mm project.
Cheers from Brendon (The Kiwi)

  2. That's an impressive array you've got there. For an i-phone, the pics turned out really well. The brushwork, the detail and the water effects are great.
