Post War Bolt Action Miniatures

As mentioned last year, I bought a Bolt Action US Army sprue at Warfare last year.

The sprue contained parts for five infantry but no weapons. To build a fire team of US supplied troops, I used the weapons sprue from a Wargames Factory (now available as part of the Warlord Games Project Z range) Male survivors set.

Some modification to the right hands (to grip the pistol grip of the M16) and the left hand (to grip the fore grip) was required.

The uniform is Citadel Death World Forest.
Webbing and pouches are Citadel Karak Stone.
Helmets are Vallejo US Olive Drab.
Boots and water bottles are Vallejo Leather Brown.
Furniture on the gun is Vallejo Black Grey.
Pistol holster is Citadel Mournfang brown.

Once base painted, they were dry brushed with Citadel Terminatus Stone.
Citadel Athonian Camoshade was used over the green parts and the helmet.
Citadel Agrax Earthshade was applied to the webbing, pouches, holster, boots and water bottle.

The hands and faces were base painted with Vallejo Panzer Aces flesh base. Heavy shading used Citadel Mournfang Brown with a final shade using Citadel Reikland Flesh Shade.

Oops, seems to have picked up some grass.

Fire team in action.

Now I just need the new Rubicon M4A3E8 kit to provide them with some support.

Of course some opposition is also required.
