This week for Miniature Monday I have been able to paint up a Vanguard-class submarine for Dystopian Wars.
I used my standard black/gunmetal hull with red and white details and bronze for the pipes. I quite enjoyed painting the waterline base. It was done with Regal Blue, shaded with Asurman Blue wash, then highlighted with Enchanted Blue, Ice Blue and finally Skull White.
So far, I have one surfaced version and one submerged done. I also have more Britanian cruisers in progress as well as Aquan heavy cruisers for Firestorm Armada. Hopefully I will be able to show you them next week.
Check out @CaitoGalenus’s rundown of the new Necron stuff available for pre-order: Necrons Unleashed.
Speaking for myself. I quite like the new Necron infantry. They have a very definite style with plenty of options without being over the top and it looks like you could have some fun choosing a cool colour scheme that suits both your taste and the new models.
I’m less keen on the new vehicles. the Catacomb/Annihilation barge is okay but I don’t much like the look of the Ghost/Doomsday Ark.
The character models are cool, and speak to the new direction GW are taking the Necrons. I think this is overall a good move for what had hitherto been quite a bleak and characterless race.
