From BrendonW: Dystopian Wars Japanese Robots, Destroyers and Cruisers (25 points)

From Brendon:
I continue to be inspired by the Challenge to remain productive. After sighting some new models I haven't seen before I was inspired to get some more Dystopian toys. Turns out might be some renewed interest at my club as well. So might get a few games in after not playing for possibly over a year.
Spartan Games Resins for Dystopian Wars. There is something about these clean CAD designed models that makes them a delight to collect and paint. Odd ball designs that are at the same time familiar but twisted. No assembly required on these Empire of the Blazing Sun naval vessels nor do I need to do any basing. This does speed things a little but the detail they manage to get on them is amazing.
In this pack of vessels from a time that never was we have some chemical flame throwing brass colored Zarigani Class Small Robots. I gave them two coats of acrylic Gloss to give them a wet look.
Three small rocket delivering Yurgi Class Destroyers.
Three bigger Arashi Class Support Cruisers with forward shooting rotary Rocket systems. Will these incendiary rockets bring hot fiery death to this fleets enemy's? With my playing skill unlikely. Cheers all.

Excellent stuff Brendon. I really like the Dystopian Wars 'universe' and as you say, the quality of their products are superb. I'm a big fan of the look of the Japanese fleet - it has this great 1920s art deco esthetic about it, with many their ships seeming like sea-going locomotives. I've not seen these Arashi Support Cruisers before (are they relatively new?). Those rocket pods look quite formidable.

These fresh additions to the Empire of the Blazing Sun will give Brandon 25 points.


  1. oooh, lots more Dystopian loveliness. Great work Brendon :)

  2. Nice work Brendon. I 100% agree about how cool their models are and how enjoyable to paint. Your foam affect in the submersibles is pretty cool.

  3. Thanks Curt and Tamsin and Michael.
    Yes they are new models and the support ships have an Attachment rule so they can be added to a squadron.

  4. A couple of people have tried to get me involved on Dystopian stuff but as a club we all bought Uncharted seas fleets and only played once or twice. I do like the models for these though and will continue to watch with interest. Very nicely painted and slowly edging closer to a purchase. So stop tempting me.


Thanks for your comment! As long as you're not a spam droid I'll have it up on the blog soon. :)
