Another Useless Blog About 15mm Sci-Fi Wargaming


Welcome, visitor, to the world of the Dis-United Kingdom. A dark world set two hundred years in the future.

After the bloody and chaotic breakup of the Dis-United Kingdom anarchy reigned supreme and daily survival for each individual was never a guarentee but, rather, was hard fought and easily lost.

Then slowly small, fledgling states began to form in the ashes of the breakup of the United Kingdom and like tiny Phoenix's they each grew and became stronger and stability in each region grew.

But alas, the stability was never going to be long lived and tensions between neighbouring states grew as each vied for larger territories and greater control over the Dis-United Kingdom as it became known. Each state formed its own basic military forces mostly of militias and home defence units with whatever weaponry and hardware was still available at minimal cost.

Soon these forces became more and more professional as neighbour fought neighbour and the weaker states were rendered extinct their brief history wiped by their more powerful, successful neighbour and this continued and escalated up and down the lands. Eventually nine super states emerged, each with their own distinct military and an un-easy peace descended as each remaining state sized up its neighbour and took stock of all that had happened.

Now, 200 years on although an un-easy peace sits upon the land like a late snowfall in early spring, it is obvious that it is slowly melting and war will soon erupt to decide who will ultimately re-unite the Dis-United Kingdom.

Battling On

Well, work commitments have been a little heavy recently and for very little fiscal reward but hopefully come the end of July the overtime money will alow to put another order in at GZG which I have been debating in my head! I think the next purchase will be for some rebel militia types and equipment/hardware maybe even some minis for a pirate ambush scenario but who knows. Anywho, here are some photos of my recent work. The command vehicle didnt turn out exactly how I wanted but I have some ideas about this for future vehicles. Also finishing basing up the AT teams and started to paint up x8 NAC Rifles as the Fenland Air Assault drop troopers. Plenty of stuff coming up though so stay tuned.



The aerials are made from florist wire in a recent trip to hobbycraft which is also where i got the orange/pink reindeer moss- also in the florist section going cheap!




I'm afraid its only a small update today, but lots to follow as I will be tackling the painting of the first infantry squads and the dropship VTOL's which might still be done in a sky blue colour.

Toodaloo for now.

  1. Hi Rhysius - IMHO any one of the colours you have used would work well with a neutral colour, pink and grey, brown, black even white would work well, or 2 of the colours, orange/blue, pink/blue etc, but the mix of colours you have used don't work for me, even with bright vegetation on the bases, but thats just an opinion, there are plenty that will have an opposing opinion and its your army, I will be following to see how it turns out.

  2. Hi Dan,

    Thanks very much for the feedback, much appreciated. I think you maybe right about that and there maybe some modifications to the colour scheme. Originally the sleeves and trousers were going to be either grey or White. Thanks also for following.
