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.

Free Coalition Townships Receive Reinforcements

Well, what can I say, I put the order in to GZG and Jon worked the weekend so I received my order on Tuesday just two days later! Fantastic. So now I have infantry and AFV's for the FCT. As well as the Fenland Air Assault Regiment. I have now painted 4 basic squads for the FAAR and once I have finished the next two basic squads and then the SAW gunners I will attempt to paint up the first VTOL for the FAAR and begin work on the FCT infantry. I have used the OUDF GZG infantry for the FCT Defence Force. On top of this I have ordered militia and armed civilian types to form the townships local militia. I also invested in the Ravagers infantry packs which are beautiful figures as well as the individual heads packs which are also awesome to do my first 15mm conversions! The FCT Defence Force have x6 Low tech APC's (4 wheeled, 2 tracked) on top of which they have a wheeled command vehicle and x2 wheeled SPG's as well as x2 manned AT Guns and x2 wheeled utility trucks with tribarrel autocannon mountings. So lots of options then. Lots more photos to follow, probably this afternoon hopefully. I have been working alot of late so trying to fit in painting and posting has been a little frustrating!

Toodaloo for now
