Hey so I am only half delivering on what was promised with some painting and no battle report. Let me start with why I have no battle report. I did play a game of Dystopian wars today with my Kingdom of Britannia naval fleet, but with not having played the game since the previous addition of the rules I forgot to take any pictures of the game. That said I got crushed by a Prussian Fleet in 3 or 4 turns. Re-learnt just how brutal that game can be. Still had a good time.
So I acutely went to start painting late last night, but when I went to compare the fresh paints I brought earlier that day to the American rifle color guide. I quickly became confused with the shirt color looking more like the pants color and the pants color looking more like the shirts and then I remembered the book me and the store owner looked in was for the late war therefore it was for the late war uniform. This left me at in a bit of an awkward potion with me making this army to be used for Mid war. Today after talking with some of the other guys I decided to just go with a late war paint scheme.
Only done a little painting so far, the boots on 7 teams (1 team per stick) and the Anklets on one team. Would have gotten more done but I got distracted and then tired so figured I would get this post up and go to bed. I will talk more to my methods and reasoning in future posts, but for now as you can kinda see is how I am trying to leave black in-between colors and in crevasse. Hope fully with a strong highlight on each color the models will have a lot of contrast. For now its nice the have started painting, just trying to think how much I still need to do before Cancon.
Any way I am done for tonight, coming up over the next week or I will look at putting together a bit of a painting guide and more progression pictures.
