This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
More Progress on a Japanese Platoon for Bolt Action
The first four elements of my planned reinforced Japanese platoon for use with the Bolt Action ruleset are nearing completions. From left to right, a Type 97 Chi-Ha tank, a 10 man infantry squad, a medium machine gun w/ 3 man crew, and an officer. The officer's 2 man escort are hiding in the back waiting to be painted. Not shown in this picture is a US Stuart tank, which will be modeled as a captured vehicle.
Here's a close up of the infantry squad, 10 riflemen plus a Light Machine gunner. The figures are basically done with the exception of some facial highlights.
The medium machine gun and officer. I'm not that happy with the machine gun and will likely redo some aspects of it.
Here's a picture of the stuart along with a long forgotten Warlord Games 28mm Hetzer model. I'm finishing that up as part of a contest over on the WWPD forum.
