|The Fleet sets sail|
2 weeks ago I got a chance to play Dystopian Wars (DW) for the first time. It was an instant hit! I played the Federated States of America and my opponent played the Prussians. We used small forces (around 700 points each) and had a hell of a game. Foe the board I pulled out my Dread Fleet Sarong...er mat.
I think I was winning when we ended around Midnight but it could have gone differently if we had finished it out. This game is fantastic and I cannot say enough good things about it. In fact I was so impressed that I ordered my own Fleet! After reading the fluff from the rule book and looking around on-line I decided to go with the Republique of France. Mostly because I REALLY like their Skimmer Battleships and Cruisers!
My Fleet arrived from the Warstore earlier in the week and all other modeling projects stopped while I assembled the French Fleet. Below are some pictures I took of the assembled ships. As the DW ships come in white resin the details don't show well with my camera; so several of the pictures have been "touched up" (HDR- High Dynamic Range) to allow the detail to show through. Thank you Picasa!
