"Another floating runway"

I’m posting this today (Friday) as I have to work from seven tomorrow morning, so I’ve been pulling out all the stops (well a bit at least) to get these finished early so you don’t have to wait till tomorrow evening (the varnish is still a little tacky as I take the photos). 837 more words

"Land Ho!"

Good news everybody! I’ve finished the islands, and I’m rather pleased with the finished articles if I do say so myself, yes scale wise they might be a bit on the wayward side (but then some of the Dystopian stuff is) and Myles isn’t that sure about the gravel ring around the bottoms of the buildings, but I did this so that the buildings can face in any direction without the pathway looking odd as it would not run up to the front of the building, anyway before I get to carried away in justifying all the various aspects of these bits of scenery I’ll get on with… 1,101 more words

"Don't land ere', it ain't ready"

Oh well, as I stated last week “The best laid plans of mice and men!”. My ridiculously optimistic plan to get these islands finished for this week’s blog have fallen around my ears like Pompeii, I personally blame the three “Queens” (for those not in the know these are the three Cunard cruise liners that have docked together in Liverpool for the first time for Cunard’s 175th anniversary), as we spent quite a bit of time watching them on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, that and other “holiday” activities (not all of them fun I hasten to add!) have really eaten into my island building time. 784 more words

A Dystopian War And Some New Additions

The new fad that is Dystopian Wars, has led to a modest spend on my own fleet.  Ebay has again come through with a collection of new and used ships that should allow me to field an effective force. 393 more words

A Flight Of Fancy And The Start Of The Dystopian Wars

A small change in direction was had recently (probably no surprise to regular readers).  This came about as a result of my long fascination with finding a boat game to play that ticked all the right boxes but remained light and easy to play. 287 more words

"Dread the Worm!!"

Well I wasn’t able to buy the bits I needed to finish my islands this week so instead I thought I’d pull out the last few ships from my “Dystopian Wars Prussian Battle Group”, this consisted of four “Arminius Class frigates, and along with this I thought I’d also paint up the Blűcher Class Dreadnought that Myles had bought to go along with them last year. 683 more words
