John Henry Class Robots Complete

John Henry Class Robots

John Henry Class Robot Squadron

If you’re going to have flyers in your FSA army, you have to have some flying robots! They’re not as sexy as something out of a Zeta Gundam movie, but these John Henry Class Robots will do the trick at keeping your flying opponents at bay!

I really like these Spartan models – they’re easy to assemble, have lots of raised detail to paint easily, and did I mention they’re FLYING FUCKING ROBOTS?! Each one is the same cost as a Lee Class Scoutship, but faster, slightly more deadly at range, is superior at shooting down other flyers, and best of all – ignores command distance rules. So fly my dreaded John Henries – find the Hun or evil Brits or whatever – and shoot them out of the skies! Can’t wait to use you.

Dystopian Wars FSA Lee Class Scoutships Done

FSA Lee Class Scoutships

Got my new additions for Dystopian Wars done – my Lee Class Scoutships. I think these are some of the cooler models the FSA can have, and I bought them without giving a second thought to their stats. But the stats are great!

Sharpshooters is a nice MAR. It’s not going to win you games, but it should help frustrate your opponent’s assaults. Likewise Armoured Topside is a perk, but not a game changer. Jettison Damage however is a really nice feature of the Lee. That 1 point of hull damage recovery could mean alot. The final MAR is Spotter – a very nice skill to use with my Princeton Gunships’ Indirect Fire MAR. All for 60pts apiece!

Painting
I primed these with white, like my other FSA models, and base coated the models with Vallejo Green Grey, another US military colour that I thought I might use for my FSA airships. I ended up using the American Uniform Green as well anyway, to tie them back into the rest of my navy. The armoured noses are Vallejo German Grey, and the reds are GW Mechrite Red. Everything was washed with a mix of GW Badab Black and Devlan Mud.

Time will tell, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to put some more details into their middle span.
