News from the Fleet – Dystopian Wars WiP
I’m making steady progress on the Dystopian Wars Fleet. Here’s the latest state of play:
Really not far off now and the colour scheme is pretty much there. I’m happy with the way the red gives a bit of visual interest and contrast against the blue-green.
Next step is to add some bright silver highlights – for bling – and also get to work on all those aircraft. Yikes.
I plan to add some weathering to the ships. Such as streaking from portholes and up from the water’s edge. Maybe a bit of rust powdering, and some sooting around the chimney stacks and broadside gun batteries.
Then there’s the insignia, and I also need to decide what to do about the portholes themselves. In the box shot they did them a sky blue colour – a la reflection – but I think that looks a little odd. So perhaps just do black, or maybe a neutral light grey. We’ll see.
