Having washed the Prussian Bunker for Dsytopian Wars, I stuck in the turrets and gave the model a white undercoat using a can of Citadel Skull White.
The next stage will be either a black interior, or a grey basecoat over the whole model.
The Dystopian Wars Prussian Bunker is a large resin model.
I was surprised by the lack of detail on this model compared to other Dystopian Wars models I have in my collection. I suspect that this was intentional, especially for the Prussian Bunker which has a utilitarian feel to the model. The other bunkers for the other nations appear from the advertising material to be more “fancy”.
The Prussian Bunker consists of two pieces of resin, the roof and a hefty main structure.
You also get metal turrets.
To support my Prussian ships I bought a Bunker Complex and the Tower Set. These are really nice resin castings which add a different dimension to games of Dystopian Wars.
The bunker complex to me combines elements of the Maunsell Forts that the British placed around the UK in World War Two and German Atlantic Wall bunkers from the same era.
Befitting of the largest empire in Western Europe is the Prussian Empire Bunker Complex. This fortifying structure will cause nightmares for your opponents as they try, in vein, to break down its impeccable defences.
I had a bit of trouble finding a Prussian Bunker and had considered getting the French Bunker or even the Russian one. However as I had Prussian ships I wanted a Germanic feel to the architecture and to fit in with the naval vessels.
I also got the towers, and they also for me are reminiscent of the Maunsell Forts, but also the Martello Towers of the Napoleonic Wars.
For many years, the Prussian Empire has been able to intimidate neighbouring territories with their overwhelming strength and infectious influence. Their significance is perpetuated in their Tower Set – a menacing piece of architecture that will undoubtedly serve you well in battle.
Though I quite like the Prussian towers, I think Spartan Games missed a trick with the design of the Kingdom of Britannia Towers, as they look like castles, whereas I think they should have gone down a Martello Tower look.
I think the question is what colour should I paint these, thinking that grey is probably going to be the best choice.
I’ve not had a chance to really read or reflect on the rules, but not sure how these will play out in a game. They would appear to be either going to deprive the enemy part of the table on which the game is been played, or really need to be the main objective of the scenario, as in destroy the bunker.
