A couple of months ago Neal purchased the Bolt action rules from Warlord games, including their new fangled dice for issuing the orders. Now I have managed to play in 3 games so far. The rules are quick and easy to pick up and give a reasonable representation of small action games. I even tried the walk a squad across open ground to see what happened. Lets just say they didn't make it across. Suffice to say I enjoy these, I don't need many figures to play which keeps the budget down. So I took the plunge and got my self an early war British platoon from Forged in Battle. Must say the figures are very nice and excellent value.
So to painting, I must admit the uniform colour had me rather flummoxed. It seems to range from a green to brown in shade so I settled on a lightish green given a brown ink wash and I think they came out okay., though not too happy with the helmets. Took me approximately a week to get these all done.
