Warlord Games Kriegsmarine Squad

Bolt Action Miniatures Kriegsmarine box set.
So after a slight break I am back into my Bolt Action collection, these little gems had my name wrote on them as soon as I saw them. Cracking little figures and something a little bit different for my German forces. I have based them to add to my defence of Berlin forces, rubble strewn bases and a few extra details added to them just to make them stand out a little bit more
 First up the full squad in all its blue and grey glory, the cap on the officer looks pulled down slightly to far but not enough to spoil the figure. Although when I first got the box set the smg he carried was broken which did dampen my enthusiasm for them a tad, but Warlord Games came through and replace him for me. One thing you cant fault Warlord on is their after sales service, disappointing to find damaged figures but things normally get rectified quickly once you contact them.



 I really made an effort with the basing and hopefully it shows, I tried to add lots of little touches to really bring them to life. I can see me adding a second box to collection, I really like them that much. So thanks for looking and hopefully I will post more soon
 
        cheers Russ

  2. Thanks Phil, they turned out not to shabby. I think the extra work on the bases was worth it!

  3. I agree with you Russ, what ever you did to the improvement (extra work) of the base(s) I would keep doing it. The bases look great and realist to me.

    cheers,

  4. Thanks again Phil for your comments, once in a while I come across something that calls for that little bit of extra care or time to be spent on. The smallest thing can end up inspiring me no end! I think these just happened to be one of those things

  7. Very nice job on these. I like the way you did the basing-the oil drum is a great addition.

  8. Thanks Anne despite tamiya stuff being 1/48 scale it fits in pretty well! The jerry can set has a lot of use full bits and bobs. Oil drums, jerry cans, packs and tarps for both Axis and Allied forces. The vehicles are pretty cool as well

    1. Thank you Maître, the blue is Vallejo dark Prussian blue. I added black to the blue for the first coat, let it dry wash over with a pure black wash. Once again let it dry, dry brush with dark Prussian blue to highlight, add a very small amount of white to highlight and repeat until your happy with the end result. Just be careful not to over do adding the white its easy to do. Hope that helps if I havnt explained it very well juyt give us a shout!
