Scratch Build and the Plastic Soldier Company

Hi Chaps,

A rare Monday morning post but I just wanted to pop a few pictures of the scratch build from Friday night onto the blog and also mention the Plastic Soldier Company.

having only recently discovered the excellent Bolt Action rule set I am in the (expensive for me) process of building two opposing forces, German and Russian. The Russians have come via The Plastic Soldier Company and are amazing value for money. I was expecting very dodgy models because they were so cheap but actually the quality and quantity is just amazing-probably the best money I have ever spent in this hobby.

This company deserve to do well and maybe they will even release other nations in time?

As for the drunken scratch build it is a very simple foam card shape with a pair of pillars that I bought from ebay...they were literally pennies...the paint used on this are all tester pots from the DIY stores, chocolate brown being the most useful as I use it on all my bases. There are still a few spots to repaint and I will put some dull colours on the interior walls. I plan to make a few more as they should help fill up my table nicely.

  4. The paint in the building really makes it the weathering is fantastic. The Plastic solder company deal is amazing you're making me re-think the cost of getting into Bolt Action.

  5. The rule book is on Amazon for around 11 pounds and it is amazing.My Russians cost £38.50 delivered...I wont need to buy any more of these, in fact there are probably too many! I wish that they would release the Germans in 28mm because I would buy them on the day of release. Go for it...you know you should!

  7. The PSC are great. The T-34's are great as well as you get both 76 AND 85 turrets so you can swap them out as need be!
