I got the first batch of my Command and Squad B Bolt Action Germans varnished last night. As hoped a final light spray of matt varnish just took the glossy shine off the figures that was caused by the use of inks.
The Command Group consists of the First (or 2nd) Lieutenant and two 'body guard' riflemen. The first batch of Squad B (my second infantry squad) has an NCO (with SMG), a rifleman and a rifleman with Panzerfaust. The final number of infantry in Squad B will total nine men.

Ironically, because I have used all my German infantry as guinea pigs, the overall quality of my first Bolt action infantry force will be something of a mixed bag. But that's why I started with the Germans first - I didn't mind them looking a bit shabby in places. (I would have hated to have made a bad job of a British unit!)
|My detailing is improving - I'm rather pleased with the job I made of the|
infantry kit and accessories.
But, for the moment, I'll have a rest from the figures and get back on with my Finnish Army transport project for some variety.
