High above the waves the Illustrious Class Sky Fortress gracefully glides into battle, held aloft by six gigantic manoeuvring rotors and the Royal Engineering Corps’ most advanced Sturginium Gravitation Generators. But do not let the majestic soaring fool you, this is a beast born for war, with a host of deadly and devastating weapons that it brings to the fight. It can pummel you with turret fire while deadly squadrons of fighters and fighter bombers launch, ready to bring even more death and destruction to the fray. Illustrious is the name of this model, but its enemies may perhaps rename it to Infamous once they’ve felt its wrath in battle.
This is how it looks from the marketing material.
The model itself comes in a blister.
The model is a large piece of resin, with a resin “island” and resin pylons with metal rotors.
Underneath the model.
As well as the Sky Fortress you also get some tiny flyer tokens.
Here is the model having been put together.
It was quite fiddly to do the rotors and the pylons, this made this model probably the most difficult to put together from the Dystopian Wars range.
I then gave the model a white undercoat using a Citadel Skull White spray can.
I then started the basecoat, for which I used Citadel Boltgun Metal.
I then finished off the basecoat with Citadel Boltgun Metal.
The deck I will paint tan, so that when given a wash it will look like wood.
