I started off not particularly liking my German force. Bolt Action is one of the few games I can get my son to play, so I needed to build two armies. The Soviets needed an opponent. However, as I play a few games with them, I guess I'm starting to 'bond' with my little army. (I say little as I always seem to be outnumbered!)
I've had a slight re-shuffle for the 800 point list for our upcoming league games, and thought I'd pick up a sniper and and MMG team to give me some options. (I don't like gimmicky armies and don't like the idea of fielding all veterans with Assault rifles, but I think these two options 'feel' right)
The sniper is a bit of a conversion - a Russian body with German bits added. I'll post a pic next week*.
The Germans so far are a core of Warlord minis, with a Veteran section of mostly Artizan figs. This MMG team was ordered from The Assault Group (TAG) I wasn't familiar with their stuff but I'm impressed. Nice chunky but well proportioned and detailed figures. There were four figures in the pack, I only need 3 for the MMG team, but have painted up the fourth as a 'spare' . I'm sure he'll find a role. All my usual 'arms length' painting.. Block colours and dip. Nothing clever but quite effective.
*The MG team have yet to join their comrades, as they were diverted to fight a small campaign elsewhere (see Tom's Blog here). Hopefully they will meet up in time for a game this week.
