OXI - Greek Army Project Part 6 - Mountain Troops

Another week and another update to my growing Greek army.  This week I added twenty mountain troops, bringing the count up to 160 pairs of infantry boots.  The Greek Mountain troops were the best troops Greece had to fend off the Italians and Germans.  Deployed to the mountainous northern regions of Greece, these troops were tough and rugged.  They are also the best infantry available to a player interested in fielding a Greek force.  These regular tough fighter will give the Axis invaders a head ache.

The Pros of Batch Painting

For regular followers here I don’t think this will be a big surprise, but every project I do generally involves the “assembly” line painting process of painting an entire army at once. What does this mean? It means I will assemble and prime every model in my army at one time. I will then paint every model of that type at once. One color at a time. So for example, I will paint the boots of every model in my army at one time. 

Why would I paint like this as it is soul destroyingly tedious? Wellll…  Besides the fact that I am occasionally (stop laughing LRDG guys) a glutton for punishment and I do not believe in doing things the easy way... Hmmm... Except that maybe this IS the easy way.  Read this through and please let us know what you think on our forums.

Does Battlefield In A Box's Desert Terrain Work For Bolt Action?

There has been an exciting influx of players into the Bolt Action scene recently and one of the things that I struggled with when I started playing Bolt Action was finding appropriate terrain. Now the gang at Gale Force Nine have been kicking out quality resin prepainted terrain for quite some time now.  Maybe you have encountered it on a 40K table or maybe in a game of Flames of War…  I am here to tell you about some of the stuff that works for Bolt Action. Specifically... The desert stuff...

OXI - Greek Army Project Part 5 - Raw Recruits

The Greeks utilized a variety equipment and uniforms during the invasion of their country by the Axis. Outside of wearing the Italian helmet and style uniform, they could also wore British style uniforms.  This became especially true toward the end of the campaign when new recruits were being shuffled to the front.  New recruits would likes be issue British helmets and uniforms parts.
