This box of goodies didn’t quite fit into my “Bolt Action Storage Tub” so I took it as a sign that I should build everything in it over the course of the next few days.
As you know I fancied a little painting the other day and went with a Valhallan Ice Warrior Lieutenant. I’ve also had a hankering to build some minis so here we are.
Bolt action plastic minis are a little fiddly but still quite fun to put together. I started with the infantry because, in any army, they’re always my favourite units, and made three squads of ten men including one veteran squad. Each squad has a Lieutenant and a sergeant.
Here’s a couple of pix. They really remind me of the old plastic soldiers I had as a kid.
I also managed to build a 81mm mortar and a medium machine gun team but, as they’re shiny metal minis, the B&W photos didn’t come out too good.
I’m looking forward to tackling what’s left in the box which consists of a 8.8 Flak 37 and a medium Panzer III tank.
I think I have more Afrika Korps somewhere as well so I may need to dig those out and build all that too.
For now though, it’s back to CoffinWood 😉
