Bolt Action Yanks [36]

One small thing I did get done last night was to dig out my Bolt Action late war US stuff and sort out the bases, which I'd been meaning to do for ages. These were originally decorated with some dried herbs as leaf litter but I was never really happy with the end result. So, with the aid of some GW Flesh Wash ink, I've stained them a dark autumnal brown and I think they now look much better. I was tempted to add some snow but I think that would be a bit too much?

I've also finally worked out what I need to expand the force to a full platoon plus support for Chain of Command. I have an unfortunate habit of picking armies that have very large section sizes, so I need another half a dozen new riflemen figures and an equal number of crew to fill out the numbers to a full three squads of twelve GI's. I'll order these from Artizan and get them painted up in the summer holidays, as a simple little painting project that I only need a set number of paints to complete.


  1. Very nice! I do like the bases.

  2. You've done an excellent job, very nice looking units!
