It must have been twenty year ago when I first watched 'A Bridge too far'. Since then this movie influenced me and my wargaming hobby. Years ago I had 20mm Red Devils. Firstly Revell plastics and later Britannia metal miniatures. A while ago I stumpled over Warlord Games's range for their Bolt Action game and fell for their republished BAM figures. After a longish break I painted the second batch last week:
First two leader figures. Actually they're meant to be officers but I decided to use them as sergeants for my paratrooper sections.
Then a couple of riflemen wearing berets and a small 2" mortar. I have no idea whether I'll really need him but probably I won't harm to have one.
Last but not least four more careful troopers wearing the Mk. 2 Airborne steel helmet with some camouflage on it.
As you see I have to finish the bases but I wanted to take some pictures before varnishing the boys. For the DPM smock I used the same colour combination as for my earlier Red Devils. Although it looks too greenish on the detail shots the general impression on the table is rather satisfying to me. Especially because they combine well with their earlier painted chaps.
Only ten men but a large step to my initial 500 points army for Bolt Action. Only twelve men to go!
For now please don't forget to have a look at the Google+ community dedicated to 'Paint Table Saturday'.
Enjoy your weekend!
