I am a bit late with this post, but I had internet problems again, even tough I am still above my quota of at least 2 posts per month for the summer period - so all is good.
As I said from the last post, Dystopian Wars has caught on at my local wargaming club, but it has kindled up naval battles, so I decided to buy the COA naval battlegroup and join in the mayhem.
Today I present the first painted units. The Diogenes frigate. The box set has nine and I painted them up in one go.
I have to say that the castings in the box set were not very good overall. They needed a lot of cleaning and some of the detail is not always that clear and defined. Apparently though I was just unlucky as other gamers with the COA naval box set did not have this problem.
The colour scheme I chose for the Diogenes is quite bold. A main blue stripe along the dorsal area coupled by yellow stripes over a light grey base coat. At first I admit I was not very convinced with my choice, but as painting progressed and especially after the first washes, things came together and I was content I took this course of painting.
So until then, farewell and good health,
