The Blazing Sun Arrives


I finally got my Empire of the Sun starter fleet for Dystopian Wars. A box full of goodness. I am about to clean and prime. I can't wait to paint these babies. I am thinking a traditional Japanese Navy dark grey. Probably won't do cam. The heavy bombers in green and the fighters in cream like WWII zeros.

Actually had some of this in my hand on Sunday but fought the urge but I'm still thinking about it.It looks really good, what are the rules like or are you using them for something else.

Angry, I have not had a game yet. The rules are very straight forward to read and involve throwing handfuls of dice for hits and saves. The models themselves are probably the most well produced miniatures I have ever seen.

Watch a game on Youtube.

I've been selling Spartan products on my webstore for almost 2 years. These by far are the best models Ive seen come out from them. You're gonna love them when they're painted!

The sculpts look really good. I saw these first promoted on the Spartan website and it piqued my interest.

Nobody around here has them in stock and I don't want to ask anyone to order them. It is dubious that I'd have people to play again. So, I'll live vicariously through you!

I'm loving your paint scheme idea.
