Republique of France fleet for Dystopian Wars

Hi,
    just finished this Republique of France fleet for Dystopian Wars by Spartan games.

It was a great project and I did enjoy painting something a bit different for me.

Its a full 1000 point fleet and I had built it to give a few options during play and includes a carrier, subs and some flying ships.

Didn't want to go for a historic 'Dazzle' pattern or copy the colour scheme from the box so I invented this new scheme with 4 bands of grey on the larger ships that get lighter to wards the front or at the water line of the ships.

To try and unify all the models I have added a French flag to each model apart from the counter tokens but I have done them with red, white and blue tails.

I also tried to add a bit of movement to one of the Marseille Crusiers to try and make it look like its banking.

 So enough of the words.

Here are the pictures.

  1. Very nicely done there! I like how you have the French flag on all the ships in some way. And have split up the fighters to be in squads of 5, and base them on the flag also.

    Great job on it! But is this only 1000 pts? Seems like a lot more!

  2. Groovy. They are certainly something different to paint.
