Undercoating the Hussars

These three Hussar Class Gunships are reinforcements for my Prussians in Dystopian Wars. After constructing the models I gave them a white undercoat.

I then, using a hot glue gun, stuck them to some old paint pots for painting.

SMS Scharnhorst

I have started to paint the second of my Spartan Games Prussian Empire Dreadnoughts.

I finished the first, SMS Blücher and will be painting this model in a similar fashion. I decided early on to use the same turret layout as my first Dreadnought and not use generators. I did wash the model first to remove any mould lubricant.

I then gave the model a white undercoat using Citadel Skull White spray.

I also affixed the model to an old plastic blister using a hot glue gun to make it easier to paint.

I’ve named this ship, SMS Scharnhorst, after Gerhard von Scharnhorst, he was Chief of the Prussian General Staff, noted for his writings, his reform of the Prussian army and his leadership during the Napoleonic Wars. Blücher who was an army Field Marshall, is whom the Blücher class Dreadnoughts are named after, I have decided that the first of my dreadnoughts will be the SMS Blücher. Generally ships in the same class are named in a similar vein, so the first of the class is the SMS Blücher, this dreadnought will also be named after an army general, in this case Scharnhorst.

Undercoating the Prussian Bunker

Having washed the Prussian Bunker for Dsytopian Wars, I stuck in the turrets and gave the model a white undercoat using a can of Citadel Skull White.

The next stage will be either a black interior, or a grey basecoat over the whole model.

Prussian Empire Blucher Class Dreadnought

I mentioned in a previous post that I had got some Prussian reinforcements. One of the three blisters I got was a second Blucher Class Dreadnought to complement the first one I have finished.

I did think about changing the turrets to generators, but in the end maintained the four turret model that I had done with the first one.

One of the reasons I write up how I paint my models, is partly to inform others, but also to inform myself. So I will be using the workbench feature I wrote up on the first model to paint this second model. It will remind me of the paints and processes I used.
