Like wot it says above, I've made a start on a few Bolt Action reinforcements.
[Above] The engineers and flamethrower team (front row, left-right) I've had for a while, but the observer models are part of my booty from the 'UK Gathering' Tabletopbattle tournament last month.
They really are all lovely models, and exceedingly characterful: I'm looking forward to painting them, but I'm not 100% sure about the recessed bases they cam with. Usually I'd use 25mm metal washers for the metal minis, but I'm trying to be less OCD with the way I go about my Bolt Action, after almost two decades of painstakingly identical 40K basing.We'll see.
[Flamer team, above] These chaps are properly tasty, rules-wise. Fluff-wise, I'll probably get them a jeep to ride in, as that's what the 11AD flamethrower teams had. Fast, but unarmoured.
[Engineers, above] Sadly, the Brits don't have any rules for using engineers in combat roles, but I'll use them as spare bods in squads whenever I need them. That kneeling guy with the wire cutters? - I reckon he'd make a rather brutal-looking Number 2 for my medic!
[RAF observer and two others, above]. Currently, my Arty observer is actually played by a senior officer model, but I quite like him doing that, so I might just keep things that way. We'll see.
I've got a £10 voucher for Warlord Games burning a hole in my pocket right now, and as it has to be used by the end of the month, it almost certainly will be. D'oh.
Cheerio for now, and happy gaming,
