Bolt Action Jungle Terrain

To go with my Japanese, Chindits and USMC I have started work on some jungle terrain. Generally following the Terrain Tutors Burma Build on youtube.  I am using what materials I have. The bases are hardboard cut into different sizes and shapes.  I then cut up and glue on a polystyrene ceiling tile, put filler in the gaps and round the edges to smooth it out.  Glue on sand and small rocks for texture. Finally undercoating in bitter chocolate masonry paint.  Still lots to do

Bolt Action Japanese Army

I have had my Japanese figures from TAG for years now. I have painted some up  but lost interest.  Now I am going to have a go at Bolt Action I decided to get them out and form a rough 1000 point force loosely based on the Warlord Games Japanese starter army except using TAG figures.  I already have TAG Chindits but will get the USMC starter army from Warlord games to save on cost.




Bolt Action Terrain

Bolt Action is one of the projects that I keep thinking about but never get round to.  Well after sorting through all the stuff I have I am starting to give it a go.  I am getting seem stuff to come to make Jungle terrain but first up I though I should built two houses I got ages ago from Stonk Games.  They went together quite well, there were a few mistakes how they had been cut but for the price they look very good.  I have the Farm Hovel and Ruined Farm Hovel

Rogue Trader 40k - Space Orks

I always liked the idea of Orks in space but never got round to painting any.  I loved their vehicles but never quiet liked the modern GW Orks.  I bought a load when Warhammer Apocalypse first came out but sold them all on unpainted.  Going through some boxes I found some Orks from the Rogue Trader and 2nd edition era and decided to start painting them.  They are much more characterful like the early fantasy Orcs.  I enjoyed painting them and have bought more to paint.


Army of Harad Part 6

Haradrim Command and the Harad Commanders done for my Harad forces
