Eyes front, officer present

        Although I still haven't managed to organise a game of Bolt Action using my own figures, I have been putting some effort into getting a decent mix of figures ready for proposed games in the new year. Finished and packed away into their case are the minimum two squads needed for a platoon, a couple of specialist units, an armoured car and various tanks, a list of figures I was pretty chuffed with. So onto my painting desk went an infantry support gun team and another squad of infantry, then I sat down to work out how many points I had just so I had an idea of how big a game I could start looking to organise and I realised something, I hadn't painted up an officer.
       So this week has been all about painting up the odds and sods of the left over German figures that have been floating around the periphery of my painting desk, not including the whole squad which got pushed back in priority, to try and get this particular project to the playable stage.

       I think the reason I hadn't painted up an officer was because this guy had worked his way onto my painting desk a while back, he left me with the vague feeling that I did have a German officer painted, just a pity it turned out to be a vampire one.
