Warlord Games Bolt Action British Paras

It's been a long time since the last post on this blog, hasn't it?

I've been quite busy with work, family and painting when I have the chance. I thought I would share an experience today as my son decided he wants some 28mm WWII British Paratroopers. Since he has done very well in school, I thought I would treat him with a few.

Kyle likes "larger" 28mm sizes so we looked online at:
Artizan Miniatures
Bolt Action (Warlord Games)
Renegade Miniatures

All of them looked good, but after closely reviewing them, Kyle preferred the Bolt Action range. I think it helped that almost all of the pictures were of painted miniatures. It appears they were painted by Paul Sawyer too, who is one of the owners of Warlord Games. Very nice paint work too I look forward to Mr. Sawyer posting more pictures of his work.

Also, I recently purchased and started playing the new Flames of War: Market Garden campaign and board game. So far it's been a lot of fun to play. I'll follow up with another post reviewing this game.
