Bringing out the Big(ger) Guns

Me again! I know, you just get yourself settled, and then I come crashing in and waving things I've painted around the place, like a small child desperate for approval.

This time, the thing I'm waving round and asking you to look at is for Bolt Action - since the release of version 2 we've had a few games, and it's rekindled my interest in painting my French army. That's a good thing, as I still have a fair pile of models to paint for it.

Top of that pile turned out to be this...

Over there!

A medium howitzer!

Or maybe over there!

I wanted one of these since it's a larger gun that the French force can take for free, but Warlord don't make a model for it. This one is actually from Mad Bob Miniatures (who incidentally seem to have a growing range of French stuff) with crew from Great War Miniatures - so the crew are actually from the wrong war, but I don't think it's too obvious, and there's not exactly a wealth of WW2 French gun crew models available.

It seems I may have inspired Pete to go out and get an even bigger gun in response, so I'll have to get this onto the table before he has a chance to counter it - even though, as a new unit, it's most likely to be destroyed before it fires a single shot...

More Dropfleet Commander Shaltari

Alright, that title is a little utilitarian, but I've painted some more Dropfleet Commander Shaltari!

So let's have a look at them then.

First up, we have, er, some frigates.


Accompanying these is, erm, some other sort of frigates. I've forgotten what they're called.

Also pointy, but somewhat flatter!

So now I have a very small fleet! These are all of the models I have so far since I'm still waiting for my Kickstarter pledge to arrive, but having these done already means I'm slightly ahead of the curve when everything else finally gets here.

Things of various descriptions!

Also notice that I don't have enough bases yet! I'm sure that will be rectified at some point, but since I can't actually play any games yet, it's not really a priority.

Right, now what?
