Warcradle Studios has added a new Battlefleet Set into the mix for those taking on the role of The Empire during your games of Dystopian Wars. The newest 1/1200 scale fleet introduces us to the Kongo.

Here is some of the background and fluff on this particular battlefleet...

"Of all the Battleships upon the seas in the last 50 years the Britannia Class of the Crown has been considered the heaviest. That is until the Empire launched the Kongo Class Heavy Battleship. One of the deadliest warships to ply the seas of the Dystopian Age, the Kongo is crewed by some of the finest sailors in all of Japan. The design of this behemoth was always aimed at making it as armoured as possible while still retaining speed and manoeuvrability as much as the best Japanese naval engineers could manage. Named after a legendary mountain in the Osaka Prefecture, this vessel truly lives up to the name. With thick armour plates and formidable weapons the Kongo class are the pride of the Japanese fleet."

This particular set comes with plenty of options for those wanting to add a bit of alternative Japanese style to the tabletop. At the heart of the battlefleet is the Kongo Heavy Battleship which is then supported by two Osaka Cruisers.

Each of the Cruisers can be built as Kanagawa, Hokkaido, Okinawa, Miyagi, Yamaguchi, Ishikawa or Honshu class ships if you prefer. You also then have four Kyoto Frigates to harass your enemies with alongside four Chita Automata for a little bit of extra support.

I really like the colour scheme for this particular set of miniatures. It would be fascinating to try and replicate that jade colouring to the ships alongside those bars of gold. Metallic undercoating alongside Contrast paints might be the way forward?

Are you going to be snapping this set up?
