Plastic Afrikakorps from Warlord Games

Bolt Action Afrikakorps

These have been laying around almost finished for a while now! Ok almost 11months nearly finished. It really was just a case of a few bits needing touching up and the basing finished. I was slightly disappointed with the choice of rifle arms in the set but all in all I think they turned out rather well. So on to the figures 2 full ten men squads and a bit of support with a mortar crew.

      First squad


Second squad 

 and finally the mortar team 

 I varied the colours to give them the appearance I like when it comes to WW2, uniformed but not to uniformed. So thanks for looking and I will post again soon.

Cheers for now Russ

Full metal Jacket

Normally I shy away from character models, I never seem to be able to capture the real look of them. So I surprised myself when I ordered these guys from Empress Miniatures.

Joker, Cowboy, Eightball and of course Animal Mother are such iconic characters I did consider just painting them as just normal grunts but! Well take a look a see for yourselves. For some reason I had real problems trying to get the camera on my phone to focus.





Animal Mother 

The full crew

I tried adding as much detail to the helmet covers as I could, the Confederate flag on Cowboys helmet was the biggest challenge, even with my smallest brush I just couldn't get it spot on. 

The rest of the squad
I planned my fire teams around groups of 10,  a Bloop gun, an M60 and the rest riflemen. 

The tally is now 3 full squads and still more to paint, I didn't do a great job working out how many I needed so my next squad is going to be a tad short. I did order some Vietcong although I'm still playing around with a flesh tone that I'm completely happy with. I will hopefully be posting my next batch of recruits sooner rather then later. 

So thanks for looking , feel free to comment! Feedback is always welcomed 
Cheers for now Russ

Random clearout stuff

The purge continues, I'm determined to clear some space so I'm putting more stuff up for grabs. I must confess to having boxes and boxes of stuff painted and unpainted that I know will probably never see the light of day or war again.

So hopefully some of it will find it's way into a loving home and someone else will get some pleasure out of it.

So on to the goodies
