At some stage during the autumn one of my club mates was ordering miniatures from Perry Miniatures and I jumped in to get troops for the North Africa. This idea had been bubbling in my mind for a year and this was perfect excuse to start new army. Then when the great miniatures came I started right away.
I also have had an idea to make some troops for LRDG for some, "behind the enemy lines -games. So next order went to Warlord Games and armed Jeeps and lorries were on the way. Previously I had bought one extra Finnish Bofors light AT gun and when I saw a picture of Portee gun Morris armed with Bofors it was added into this project too. And what is an army without tanks so few tanks were added for serious support duties.
So here's my latest Bolt Action project just in time for new "Duel in the Sun" - campaign book. This project got extra boost when I was on holiday and spent a week in the Bay of Aqaba and visited Jordania where the scenery boosted my inspiration.
|The Desert rats squad one.|
|And then reckless LRDG commandos.|
|Light mortar and At rifle for support.|
|And best support ever the Sniper.|
|Platoon command team.|
|Medic with orderly to keep boys healthy.|
|LRDG jeeps and portee gun.|
|M3 White and Morris for transport.|
|Another M3 but this time Grant to counter good German tanks.|
|Front view. This was particularly nice model to paint.|
|Crusader II a bit faster armor.|
|And the front view.|
