Bolt Action Battle

Yesterday myself and Dan played another game of Bolt Action, this time it was a 750 point battle with the British Army versus the German Heer. The battlefield was laid out so: The mission was “Top Secret” which meant that both sides were after some intel that had been left/ lost in the ruined farmhouse […]

Cromwell Complete with Commander.

Early update than anticipated, I’ve done the Tank Commander for the Cromwell! There is an even better view of the Commander in the next picture: I am really happy with the way the whole tank has turned out and will be assembling my other Cromwell soon. On the painting desk next are the British Troops […]

Cromwell W.I.P 5: Main tank complete!

Well I’ve managed to finish off the Cromwell, just need to add the Tank Commander now. Luckily I have one waiting courtesy of Warlord Games who sent me a pack of 4 to replace the missing one from my Sherman Firefly kit. As you can see I decided to scuzz up the tracks and such […]

Cromwell Tank W.I.P 4

A quick update on the Cromwell tank. I’ve got the tracks, road wheels chipping and mud done. I might yet add some yellow earth weathering powder in to make it look really scuzzy! The mud mixture was Vallejo Sandy Paste mixed in with Vallejo Model Color Panzer Aces German Camo Black Brown. All that is […]

No real update.

Hi guys, there’s not any real update to post today as I’m not feeling well enough to paint. I did get a 500 point game of Bolt Action in against my friend Dan and we fought to a draw, with Dan out maneuvering my Brits with his Germans and my abysmal dice rolling (nothing above […]

Cromwell W.I.P 3 and British soldier test 3

Got some more painting on the Cromwell done tonight with the turret being drybrushed to the same level as the main body of the tank. Chipping should be next as well as the tracks. I also managed to paint (very quickly) a British Soldier for my test unit, I’m leaving his eyes for when I […]

Cromwell Tank W.I.P 2

Here’s some more W.I.P on the Cromwell tank for Bolt Action. I’ve painted and washed the wheels as well as base coating the turret and then pin washing it. As you can see the panel lines look a bit more defined on the tank itself in this picture. Next up is the drybrushing on the […]

Cromwell Tank W.I.P

Thought I would show you what I’ve been up to today. I’ve managed to base coat, pin wash and drybrush the main body of the tank, now the photos don’t show the drybrush very well because of the flash. There is still a long way to go on the tank, including chipping and decals, oh […]

2nd Bolt Action test mini

Done another quick paint job for my second Bolt Action test mini, this time I used the spray undercoat as the base colour, washed it with English Uniform by Vallejo then highlighted up using a English uniform/ Khaki mix. I think he looks alright so I’ll continue on in a similar fashion with the others […]

1st Test mini for Bolt Action

As we had a nice break in the rain I thought I’d get some of my Bolt Action British Infantry sprayed with the English Uniform primer. Well I went a little further and actually applied some paint as a test on one of them up to a gaming standard. I’m not too fussed how the […]
