This week I was able to finish the five figures below.  They are 1/72 German figures from Italeri.  The picture isn't the best and it is made worse by the fact that the figures frosted a bit after I sprayed on the matte sealer.  Needless to say I was not happy about that.  They do the job when you are playing with them at arms length on the table, just don't look to closely.  :(

Excellent work.  They look great from here.  Sorry about the frosting.  That really chaps my @ss when that happens.

Are these for Bolt Action?

Thanks. Yes, they are a start for my Bolt Action forces.

Those look great.


Thanks Bison.

I really like the way you've based them - that is an aspect which is often overlooked and can spoil what would otherwise be good figures, but yours look great. Nice job indeed.

Now I'm looking forwards to some Bolt Action AAR's  ;)

Thanks.  The best part of the way I based them was it was incredibly easy.

Great work, Tent. I wish you'd quit posting this 1/72 stuff. I'm gonna get hooked if I'm not diligent.

Just a little payback for you being able to game during the day at your LGS.   8)  And the best part is the plastic stuff in 1/72 is so cheap compared to other scales. ;D

Sorry LB, really.  :P

Wow that is one heck of a package deal.  It is in 28mm however.  Also those are multi-part figures that you have to assemble.  While that might be nice for getting different poses they can be very fiddly.

Do you all realize whatever LB shows you I will be looking down the wrong side of the barrel at?  It's almost like getting a preview of your death.  :P

Ha! Considering how many Krauts you've chewed up I really don't feel particularly sorry for you.

I must be a sucker for punishment.  I found where your darn Jagdpanther are playable in FoW.  They are in the Earth & Steal book which is basically the sister book to Turning Tide (D-Day).

LB,

Don't feel bad for me.  I'm currently assembling my Gvardeyskiy Tankovy Batalon.  No more wimpy Shermans!

That is not a bad list.

Those ISUs are bad news. 110 points a piece? Sheesh.

And some IL-2s on priority call? Clearly I'll be reaching for Wibelwinds.

I can see some real fun developing from a Red Bear/Grey Wolf head-to-head :)
