While I'm happy NOT to be painting AWI British at the moment, I have been very happy with the new magpieism, Bolt Action! I have been painting some of the impressive Italeri 28mm British infantry for my growing Bolt Action force.
The force is a platoon from the 'Forty Twa', The Black Watch from their time in the 51st Highland Division, France 1944-45. I've add in some of the metal Warlord Games heads with Tam O'Shanter hats. So far, the lieutenant, the sniper team, PIAT team and one section have been painted and half based. Another section is made up and undercoated black and is next on the painting bench once I finish the second project below.
|My Lieutenant, He will be accompanied by a batman and a radio operator. The figure is made from the upper torso of a Italeri British kneeling figure and the lower half of a Victrix Napoleonic Highlander.|
|PIAT team. I expect great things from this pair!|
|Sniper team. Watch out enemy officers...|
|Nothing to see here. No, this not a Churchill VII. But it is.|
|Next up, Commando support for the Scots.|
Pelarel and I are teaming up again this year. One will use my NZ Divisional Cavalry, the other these Free French Foreign Legion.
