The Naval battle group was the best starting point, we each picked up one of our chosen (or in my case given) forces so we could fight it out relatively fairly.
The back of the box features some nice art work with actual size pictures of the ships, and a little background on the Russians as well.
Rounding out the naval element of the box are 9 Novgorod frigates. At first these odd round ships did not really quite do it for me, until I read about them having vectored water jet power and being used as river patrol ships as well, and then the more I looked at them the cooler I thought they where.
They are one of the most different models out there, but then this isn't a historical game, more of an alternate history, a "What if" history.
Adding air support to your fleet you get 10 stands of "Tiny Flyers" which represent, dive bombers, torpedo bombers, Fighters, or Recon planes. Which ever you choose.
Rounding out the models in the box you get a pair of Myshkin bombers, and plastic flight stands for them. Again I found them rather odd looking to be honest, and they may have drawn some unrepeatable rude nicknames and comments from some but I like them
Then you get a pack of cards with stats fro your models on for quick reference.
A nice addition that gives the basics on them.
Lastly you get a mini rulebook for your nation
In it you will find all the backstory of your nation and its dealing with other nations in the Dystopian Wars world, the rules for its Land, Sea, and Air forces, some nice pictures and any national rules.
Its a nice little booklet and worth a read of the fluff just to put you more into the world of the game.
Well now to begin painting them!
