19th Panzer Division: Veteran Grenadiers Squad (Bolt Action) (Warlord Games)

 


Hello friends!

I took the last job of painting the Germans for Bolt Action and I must admit to you, my dears, that the last, WWII entry is from... 2016!

So many years!
Unfortunately, it can be seen on the models whose photos I present today. Good photos were not produced in 2016, and as part of my chronicler's endeavors, I am doing it today.
Honestly - I would repaint them (leaving only the bases, but I don't have time and heart anymore!)

Metal models come from Warlord Games and unfortunately, they can also be used for zombie games!
Some of the soldiers' heads are real monsters!

I invite you and I promise that the now painted winter German soldiers will look better ;-)

  1. Haha, what a change of subject! Well, some of the guys don't look like handsome movie stars, right, but those are quite nice minis and your paintjob made them stand out. Looking forward to your new paintjobs!

  2. I think you are being overly critical on yourself here Michal - apart from the somewhat dodgy facial sculpting (which is common in a lot of Warlord metal figures in my opinion), which you are not responsible for, the paint job on these is way above what 90% of gamers could achieve! Its certainly better than anything I could do!

    1. Najgorzej że mam jeszcze kilka takich metalowych boxow Warlord Games i cala masa takich fuckupów ze słabym odlaniem modeli, tragicznymi głowami. Jak jakieś modele z przed 20-25 lat ( choć I wtedy chyba GW lepsze robiło)

  8. You've seen plenty Warlord metal sculpts painted up on my blog and I have to admit, I REALLY like the exaggerated faces! :) They always seem to be sculpted in great detail and makes for easier opporunities to be able to pick out details with a brush!

    Love your squad though my friend! Smashing paint jobs, and that basing is wow!

    Looking forward to seeing those Winter Germans! (You know I like some Winter WW2 minis!)

  9. Rzeźba twarzy faktycznie średnia, ale z tego co widziałem i inni hobbyści mówili, metalowe modele Warlorda i bardzo średnie. Pozostawiają dużo do życzenia.

    1. Tak, metale Warlord Games z którymi miałem do czynienia są wręcz słabe. Dużo krzywych rzeźb, grubych, zalanych detali.
