Default Dystopian Wars, Where do I go from here?

Hey all,

Just started up some Dystopian Wars playing as the mighty PRUSSIAN EMPIRE *fanfare* and have finished painting up my Armoured Battleforce {one provided in-box}.
I've decided that I want to add a pair of Pflicht Scout Ships to take advantage of the Spotter rule for my trio of Bombards.

Where should I go from here? I'm not too sure how much other land based mini's there are out on the market, so if anyone has any suggestions as to how I should grow the force, put 'em up!

{Also, how should I go about setting up a Navy?}

the sky fortress simply because it is an awesome model.

well, you can buy the naval battle group (sea force big box of stuff).

for the prussians i suggest getting the dreadnought (it looks and plays like the badass it is) this should be plenty of stuff for you, the battle box is ~700 points and with the dread your close to 1k. adding in the scout ships and what not you already have.

I picked up the prussian starter set as well and the dreadnaught along with it. I was considering the sky carrier, but it seems like they are getting a naval carrier soon, so I think I am gonna go with that instead.

Started with Blazing sun Naval starter kit, then the dreadnaught and sky fortress. Planning to continue with Ika(thats the squid for me and you). I have had a few games thouroly enjoyed them. I have started painting some of my models, which look good with a fairly simple scheme just need to do the turrets and of course the red sun. I am looking foward to seeing the second wave fleets and might expand into a second fleet if I like wat I see.

Got the naval and sky carriers for the prussians. The naval carrier is bigger than I thought, its a little plain looking, but damn its cool.

Ohhh and seems like there are new small flyers coming out soon for all the fleets, full flying fleet here I come.

My Blazing Sun have been taking the all-Federated States Guided Tour of the Bottom of the South China Sea for a while, i think the sky carriers and ground carriers are great. The Prussian Mobile Airfield is amazing, though.

Not a big fan of the land stuff in general, something about it isn't as cool.

I don't really have much interest in the Land units myself, I've only played with Air and Naval units.

Mostly as Brittanians that I borrowed, then proxied as the FSA. Some of the fluff is laughable, but I like Rockets.

I have to actually admit that I've enjoyed playing this game so much that I've yet to even read the 40K 6e rules. If it wasn't so much fun I'd feel sorry for my poor Blood Angels.

I don't have any land units yet but my Republique of France navy and air force just keep growing. Besides, I'll put my Surface Skimmer battleships and ridiculously powerful Sky Fortress up against anything that crawls thru the mud.

For the Emperor's sake people it's a TURRET! There is no such thing as a turrent.
