South Seas Detachment

I have just finished the ships from the Empire of the Blazing Sun Dystopian Wars starter box.  Introducing the Imperial South Seas Detachment or SSD.  The Empress Shizuna has dispatched the SSD to the Southern Ocean to discourage the ever growing terrorist state of the Covenant of Antarctica.  The so called Lord Sturgeon is of Britannian origin and we can never trust those pale skin fish and chip eaters.  The SSD is lead by a mighty Sokotsu Class Battleship, and supported by three Nakatsu Class Cruisers and nine Uwatsu Class Frigates.  They will be soon joined by an Imperial Carrier.  The SSD is the finest fleet in the Empire of the Blazing Sun.  May they bring honour to our Empire .

These ships were a lot of fun to paint.  Without doubt the best detailed miniatures I have ever owned.  A lot of Dystopian Wars gamers are painting their fleets in bright colours but I decided to go for the traditional naval look.  The base grey colour is WWII Japanese Navy Sasebo.  The decks are traditional ship deck tan.  I painted the Dystopian tech items in bronze.  Missiles in white.  I have ordered the carrier and that will be the next addition to the fleet.

Fantastic job on the DW fleet.

It has been surprising the number of blogs with DW's at the moment.

This can only be good for the hobby :)

I like the muted colours, more military based.

Very nice! I've seen these ships in the local shop, but I've restrained myself. (No, no, no, not another period and set of rules!) Great stuff still!

Beautiful work Beccas. Now, buy and paint the opposition and we'll have a game.

Great looking fleet...whatever that is that you are using for water is perfect.

I have promised myself not to buy any Dystopian Wars until my Unchartered Seas stuff is done. Posts like this doesn't make it easier. Thanks for specifying the colours you use.
