Dystopian Terrain

More scenery for the Dystopian table.  The docks and city walls.  the docks belong to the club and I did those as part of the PAW Open Day project.

 Again great minis from Spartan Games but not quite there usual standard, some of the 'wooden' jetties where warped and do not sit flat but they look great.

 The city wall set, this time with guns.  Although belonging to the Uncharted Seas range they fit in great with Dystopian. 
 The thought is with these and the others is to form a fortified harbor for the fleets to operate out off.
The gate looks great!  the 'wave' emblem just cries out harbor!


Here are the squadrons so that the Luftwaffer will rule the sky, along with the airships!

The very colourful ones will make up the flying circus to go with the red airships.
The white fliers are the scouts, we need to see what is out there!

This should make about 10 or 12 squadrons.

Reinforcements for the Emperor!

Ok this post is self explanatory here are 7 airships for the might Prussian Empire.

More air power for the Prussian Empire
 That brings my Airship Fleet up to 2xSky Fortresses, 3 Gewittewolke Bombers and 6 Pflicht Scoutships.

A home for the Red Baron's Flying Circus.....

Just look at the firepower!

Soon to be finished will be 7 Tiny Flyer squadrons (5 bases each) and 3 Tiny Flyer Scout bases.  That will bring the Luftwaffer up to about 11 Squadrons.....The Emperor will rule the sky!!!

FoW Hungarian Artillerymen

A weekly(ish) update of what I have been doing whilst at work.  Completed 18 French Napoleonic Line Infantry, 12 Ancient Spanish foot and 20 Hungarian Artillerymen, below.

They are all a work in progress, as in no basing and in the Spanish case no finishing off with Army Painter.
I hope to get lots of figures done whilst I am away including 62 Hungarians, 102 Spanish and lots of French.  If I manage that I have some Dystopian Wars stuff to do as this space!

Below are some Hungarian's base painted black, and the dry brushed, simple but effective!

More French WIP

Ok I am away with work for the next few weeks which gives me plenty of time to paint figures!!
I have brought a various 

Below are some work in progress French line infantry for Al's on going commission.
French Line Infantry
 They are painted in my usual fashion, block painted and then was in GW Badad Black
 I'll post more pictures once I have based them.

Also on the painting table are FoW Hungarian artillery men for an other member of PAW, I've done 20 out of 64 so far.
For myself I am painting Spanish infantry for my Carthaginian Army in 15mm.  So faar I have just done the 12, only another 96 to go!  Good job I have over 4 weeks left here!

Thank You

Hi Viewers,

Thank you for looking at my meager offerings please feel free to leave comments and advise.



Dystopian Wars Scenery

Here are some of the very good Spartan Games' scenery sets.  Clive, from PAW, is making terrain boards for the club's show game.  Obviously the boards are a work in progress!

City Walls
The city walls above are from the Uncharted Seas range but work equally well in the Dystopian era.  The towers with the red tiled roofs are actually gun towers, the two on the right of the picture are the plain city wall tower.
In the background you can see the two of the industrial untis. 
Cathedral and urban areas
 Here are a few bases of the urban set. As you can see I have based them on 2mm MDF and used flock to create the tarmac roads.  Simple but effective I think.

The lighthouse in situ on a head land using it's warning light to guide the fleets into the bay.

Dystopian War Scenery

Here is a selection of Dystopian Wars scenery that I have painted for my collection and PAW, ready for the big game being held at PAW13, Plymouth 2nd and 3rd February 2013!
If you are about come and join in.

Firstly the Prussian Empire bunker an imposing model and a great miniature to paint, looks pretty solid and in game terms packs a great punch!!
Prussian Bunker

Here are two sets of the Industrial packs, one of mine and one belonging to PAW.  They are based on 2mm MDF which has just been sprayed black and the dry brushed dark grey to represent a tarmac/concrete setting.
Industrial Units

Factory Unit

Crane and small warehouse  

Large warehouse
 The Lighthouse is actually part of the 'Uncharted Seas' range but looks great in Dystopian and fits in very well, as does the 'City Walls and Tower' sets, pictures of them later on.
 Theses EotBS weapons towers belong to Al, a PAW member who I paint for.  As always lovely sculptured models and a pleasure to paint.
The towers come with a selection of four different weapons fits all of which enhance your game.

Knights Hospitaller

Another commissioned unit for Mickey, PAW member.
A unit of 12 Knights Hospitallar for his Crusader army.
These guys were sprayed with a red primer and then block painted.  To bring out the detail and provide   a protective covering a coat of Army Painter Dark Tone was brushed on and then once dry the bases were given a spray coat of matt varnish.

French Imperial Guard

Two new units for my friend Alan's Napoleonic French, these are now being based for FoG Napoleonics, his rules of choice.
Not sure on the makers of the figures but they were nicely sculpted and very nice to paint.

Guard Chasseurs 
Guard Grenadiers

To paint these two units I have adapted my style very slightly.  They were both undercoated with a blue primer first, Humberol French Blue, they were then painted in the usual way and a coat of Games Workshop Black Wash added.

Napoleonic Light Troops (WIP)

Firstly sorry for the bad pictures I took them on my IPhone.
These are WIP pictures of French light troops and casualty markers.
They were all done in my usual style, sprayed white, block painted and washed with GW Badad Black.  I then highlight the white bits and other light colours just to bring them out a little.
I think they are all AB figures.

Spanish Light Foots (WIP)

Here we have 64 Spanish light foot block painted and ready for the Army Painter 'Dark Shade'  
This will give me 32 FOG elements and that's 12 units in both FOG and Hail Caesar. 

64 Spanish Light Foot
 Whilst these have been done for my Late Carthaginian Army I hope to paint up enough Spanish to make a stand alone army.
 These figures are all Corvus Bellie.  The Late Carthaginian army will be made of figures from this range as I prefer, if possible not to mix ranges in my armies.  I know but just my thing. 
All 'block' painted ready for the Army Painter Dark Shade

Where Next?

Ok I have been looking at my wargaming hobby and what and where I go next.
I have come to a decision, no new 15mm projects.

So what do I have on the go.......15mm

Late Carthaginian using Corvus Belle Figures

Macedonian/Seleucid using Xyston

Late Achamenid Persian using Xyston

AVBCW using Peter Pig

Now for the new projects...
10mm War of Spanish Succession 
10mm Wars of the Roses
10mm ACW

However and there is always an however...I do like 6mm
6mm Napoleonic Russian 1812
6mm Wars of the Roses (instead of 10mm lol)

So as you can see I am a busy little boy...oh and Dystopian Wars Prussian Empire!

And not to forgetting my continuing painting commissions from PAW club members.

So what am I getting rid of, A LOT!!
15mm WW2 Russians (a large collection!)
Epic Chaos Space Marines
28mm GW War Of The Rings (Orcs and Goblins)

If you want to know details just drop me a line.
