Dystopian Wars: New Naval Battle Group

Hi everyone,

Lately, in my spare time, I have been working on  my Covenant of Antarctica (COA) force.  I have been doing this for two reasons.  Firstly, so I could play with a painted force, and secondly because it was one of my New Year's resolutions.

My force selection was based o the 1.1 version of the game, were a force was built up by unit choices.  With the advent of version 2, this has all changed with the use of battle groups.  The pic below shows the new COA battle group in all its glory.
I am really excited and pleased with this new box set, but it does pose some problems.  Firstly, I already have 2 battleships, one of them recently painted.  Secondly, most of the models in the  battle group are new.  This means I will have to buy the new box set - this is OK with me as I like the new models.

The problem is that this kind of invalidates my efforts to fulfill my resolution, to paint up my playable force.  At this point I think it is wise to wait until the new rulebook and army lists hit the stores before I continue painting up models.  In fact, from the Spartan forums I have found out that my 2 units of Plato cruisers are now reclassified as light cruisers!  This was done to get them in lie with the new ship model sizes.

So, I will put a halt to Dystopian Wars for now until things are clearer.  In the meantime, my Ptolemy bombers, and Icarus medium flyers are done, and I will be posting them this month.

So at this point I will have to choose which one of my resolutions to work on!

So until later on this week,

Farewell and good health as always,
