Dystopian Legions Work in Progress

I'm coming to the end of some time off and managed to put some time in (normally when the rest of the family was asleep) on painting up some of the Dystopian stuff that arrived while I was away.  

Finally got my hands on Col MacDonald and what a lovely little figure it is.  Bursting with character as he is bursting with the port that lives on the side of his steam driven armoured bathchair.  The blanket has been painted in the same tartan as my Praetorian Highlanders.


 Next up is the General Conveyor.  Again this is painted up as per my Praetorian armour rather than by a Dystopian paint scheme.  Although smaller than I was expecting it is a nice little resin model.  I like the idea of the fold down seats that have been sculpted onto the inside.  Think WWII Universal Carrier rather than something Warrior sized or FW Centaur rather than Chimera.


Finally a group shot with the basic Britannian squad.  More orders will go in while I'm away for Part 2 of the tour.  Possibly the starter set so that I can get my hands on Bertie Smethington but certainly another Conveyor and some of the Britannian artillery.

A Fun Little Kickstarter For Praetorians

If you are reading this blog, it maybe because you searched for "Praetorian" or "Dystopian Legions".  You could be a fan of Victorian sci-fi in general.  Whether you intended to be here or have blundered in, thanks for looking. 

 If you are here intentionally the kickstarter at the link below maybe for you.

Col Gravis has been at the forefront of keeping the GW idea of Praetorian Imperial Guard alive and kicking.  He has now branched out and started producing his own bits and bobs via Curious Constructs. 

The weapons carriage can have a life outside of 40K however.  Try using it with Dystopian Legions or incorporate it into this new ruleset from Osprey publishing.
