The Bolt Action British are done

The Bolt Action British are done. As much of January was spent assembling plastic Saxons, Vikings and Napoleonic figures, in February I decided to try and get something finished. The British for Bolt Action were nearly finished so I focussed on them. Here's the end result.

Some closer pictures. 

A final shot of the senior officer and nco with the red hackle, and the junior officer with the brolly. The red hackle had to be done; it's our local regiment. There's still a sense of respect, admiration and pride when I see the red hackle (though I suppose all regions of most countries  will have a pride in their own local regiments.)   

This force for Bolt Action has 3 sections of 10 infantry, a medium machine gun, artillery spotter, light mortar and PIAT. There's also a bren carrier and a Sherman and enough extra infantry to swop brens for rifles or add extra brens to sections. Rounding the force off and the officers and an RAF spotter.  

I also have to admit that the RAF spotter chap is not actually finished. But as he's unlikely to be used in a game, I'll leave him for now. I bought it because it's a nice figure.

    1. Thanks, Alan.
      It was a long road to get there, but I'm pleased with the way they turned out. At least I can say now, a project has been completed!

  2. Very nice, I have been tempted to put together something for this game, can’t decide what though.

    1. Thanks Russ,
      I'm happy to have finished a project, though the chaps I play with have been trying Chain of Command recently. So I've not yet had a chance to get a fully painted force on the table.
