    Seriously?? The largest one looks like a direct rip off of the Leviathans: Monsters in the Sky ship designs!

    They are simply clones of Leviathans.

    The Magenta was released July of 2011 (http://www.spartangames.co.uk/magenta-goes-to-gen-con), and was one of the earliest concept boats for Dystopian Wars (back in early 2010. And other than the fins and bridge (which most ships have), looks almost nothing like Leviathans. Perhaps it was based off of Leviathans, perhaps it wasn’t, but the fact that it beat it to market by a year and a half should say something…

    Leviathans was developed more than 3 years ago before Dystropian Wars started.

    Well, let’s see, the nose is entirely different than anything done for Leviathans, the ship design looks basically like anything from WWI or WWI, it doesn’t have the coppery bits on the sides of the Leviathan boats. Really, the only thing that looks similar on it is the side fins. As for flying battleships, Leviathans was not the first with the concept of flying battleships. Howl’s Moving Castle and Space Battleshp Yamoto beg to differ. Flying ships are a Steampunk trope.
