Found a couple more photos on the Scrap Yard Armory Blog from Gen Con featuring ("fantastic looking" as the blogger put it) painted Leviathan ships:

French Fleet:


British Fleet on far left side:


So the British in Grey and the French in ... silver  Huh?  Looks like repainting will be in order here, but then again, I knew I would repaint them no matter what they looked like.

Of interest are the flight stands in the first photo.  Look very nice and sturdy.

I love the style! Love the artwork! Love the idea! Now how's going to build a 28mm version?

The colours schemes on the ships could be better. Maybe some sort of camouflage? Have you heard anything of wither the games any good?

Ooooooooo I like the big one  Love Cool Love

Someone mentioned in the comments that it might be suitable for 6mm but I reckon you could get away with 15's...

Maybe some sort of camouflage?

This all does look rather promising  Smiley

Just in case someone who actually cares didn't notice, DW is coming out with a flying battleship, for La Belle France, called the Magenta class.  Huh?

Looks pretty enough...

Also, I'd call it detailed while not quite rococo... ;->=

I'd say Monsters... waited too long!

Have you heard anything of wither the games any good?

What I've read appears to indicate that the game is quite easy to pickup.  Last minute gaming rules centered on the destroyers which were viewed as a bit overpowered.

They have been testing the rules in lots of demonstration games in different "cons", so I'm leaning towards... they have the game sorted out pretty well.  Advance rules, such as using varying heights, which will not be available in the box on publication, I'm not so sure about.

A distinct possibility.  Spartan games have been very aggressive and have a continuous flow of new minis which helps to keep them in the spotlight.

Now they are moving to place themselves directly in competition with large fleet vessels, which look pretty good to me.  My feeling is that Spartans stuff will be a lot pricer than Leviathans though.   

So perhaps from a VSF POV the real question is going to be... can the two different product lines be mixed on the tabletop?

I would personally pick Leviathans over DW because that means I can get into a new game without having to paint or assemble anything. A change of pace for once.

My guess is that the Leviathan stuff will be slight in comparison to the chunkyness of the Dystopian models and I cannot see them working too well together. Oddly I am more drawn to the plastic than resin also, something I that would generally be reversed.

The dystopian wars french ship is in fact the first model of an entire faction in their second wave. (spartan games tend to have a lot of factions) By the looks of it they will also have a lot of that sort of ship since the French make heavy use of the turn a battleship into a airship type technology.  I have to say I am quite intested to see how the two would look side by side, a french leviathan fleet and a dystopian wars one. For me to choice of games is easy, my FLGS is pushing gw to a small corner and replacing it with a variety of other games, dystopian wars included, so I might actually find a player base here for once.

Or, even more difficult, find someone to assemble and paint. Have to admit, appealing to me.

GW still rules at our store, but Flames of War and a few of my fellow owners pushing DW hard means we are appropriately trying to diversify. Not pushing WH and WH40K into a corner, but GW can be a evil alien overlord (okay, a bit cruel on a UK company Laugh ) on occasion.

The ships look pretty cool to me and sounds like it was fairly popular, though it's a bummer it won't be coming out until the end of the year...

Remains to be seen, it starts to look like "the game that never will be"  Laugh.

Heck, it was on the cover of Origins Event book.  Shocked

Doug

Edit: Sheesh, less than a year and his beard is almost as long as mine?!?!?

I guess I will be bummed that I went to Origins instead of GenCon, where I could have gotten a model. Would like to have seen one in person, so I'd have something to show my partners at the store in comparison to the DW models. ;->=
