Isambard Kingdom Brun-Hell! – First Dystopian Wars Mobile Airfield Render…

The Kingdom’s Brunel

Its bloody mahoosive. Looking at this makes me yearn for the Japanese one. From the Spartan Blog…

Picture the scene: a battlefield ravaged by artillery ordnance, giant tanks destroyed by lumbering robots and Sturginium-powered Generators ripping vehicles apart. Then, through the thick smoke that now hangs over the battlefield a monolithic machine slowly moves over the ground, its giant tracks ripping the ground up beneath it, buildings crushed as easily as a bug under foot and soldiers fleeing before it in fear. As the machine emerges from the smoke all becomes clear; a massive Kingdom of Britannia Mobile Airfield creeps to war, its weapons blazing and its aircraft taking off to find their next prey.

It’s easy to feel inspired to make Dystopian Wars models sitting in a train station, nothing is more emblematic of the Industrial Revolution than the rail network, something that survives to this day as a testament to the ingenuity of that age, an ingenuity we’ve tried to capture in our models. Almost every city in England has a great station that dates back to those days, and it was London’s St. Pancras in particular that inspired me to design the Brunel Mobile Airfield in this way.

I’d started admiring the arched supports, making a note for future reference, not knowing that I would end up using the whole roof as a reference to go on the top of the model. We end up with something that is a cross between a train station and an aircraft hangar covering the massive flight deck, and with a homage to the Brunel’s little brother; the Sovereign Land Ship.
