Foray into Bolt Action

The halftrack in this photo is the plastic Bolt Action kit.  It is a very easy to assemble model with enough detail to be interesting, but designed primarily for the wargamer.  I decided to use thinned acrylic paints brushed on, rather than going the airbrush route.  Especially for fine lines I still feel like I have better control over a brush.  Weathering was done through a combination of washes, drybrushing and splatter painting with a toothbrush.

The infantry are part of the Wargames Factory set, which at $20 for 30 figures are quite the deal.  The detail is good, but not deeply incised, but still adequate for a good paint job.

I believe I used gale force nine "poison ivy" for the helmet camouflage.
