As promised, here are some more newly painted models for one of my various* Bolt Action projects. This is my planned army for a tournament I am going to mid-June, I have no idea if it works yet so lots of practise is being planned, but I liked the feel of the list. As the German Heer army I had been playing about with was all about putting troops on the table and trying out ideas, this is all about trying out another idea, while still being based and painted in a similar fashion so they can be used in mixed forces in the future.
What I wanted was a highly mobile, armoured force, having found that most armies can deal with a single fast moving armoured unit fairly easily, as my poor armoured car keeps finding out the hard way. My theory goes, that 5 armoured vehicles, moving quickly straight at objectives, or round the side of the board to somewhere you thought was safe, might be enough of a psychological threat that I can make my opponent make mistakes. So the Fallschirmjager were born.
* It happened again, a little accident on ebay and I am back to various . . .
My, as yet unnamed, second Lt.
First squad, one of only 2 with a panzerfaust.
My biggest squad at 7 men.
My smallest squad. Even though there is only 2 men difference in biggest to
smallest, I'm not sure how well these will work.
My heer panzerschreck has rarely failed to do something in a game,
so it was an auto buy for this army.
These two have been on the blog before, but both have had an heavy weathering
since and look much better for it.
Thanks for reading, now I need to organise some practise!
