Having played a few games of Bolt Action now, it has always been kind of anticlimatic when one of the vehicles on the battlefield blows up and we have to use black felt to make it look like smoke. So I figured I would throw something together that looks decent:

I have decided to sell my custom built Traitor Guard (for IG rules) and hopefully find a good home for it. I have never played with them and the journey towards completion was more fun then playing games. Hundreds of hours and a lot of money went into this project and if someone is interested, please give me a respectful offer.
Here are the units:
Here are the units:
Commanding officer plus Master of Ordnance (or whatever special guy you want him to be)
Scratch built Heavy Weapons
As featured on Victoria Miniatures facebook page: captured good guys made into penal squad with green stuff collars that blank their minds PLUS cool mech dog
Extensively modified Banewolf
Troops, total of 14 models like these, all kitbashed and individual, with two flamers like the one in the image
Custom built Storm Troopers or counts as another squad.
Counts as Vendetta
All the individual models have magnetic stickers to the bases, so they are easily transported.
The army is by no means complete and I always envisioned to be allied with Chaos Marines, of which I have a lot of painted models styled with the same swamp bases. But I haven;'t made up my mind letting go of those. I really want to find a good home for them!
For more on how all the builds went, click on the label Traitor Guard in the label list.

My father in law gave me a book his dad got when he was fighting in Northern Italy in 1945. It's called Pup Tent Poets Mediterranean and it was published in 1945 by Stars and Stripes. It was the second version, there also was a Northern Africa edition.

One more pitch for my new blog; Santa Cruz Warhammer Historical. I posted another post on it, that really represents what I want to do on that site: mix modeling with learning about history. Right now it's all WW2 but in the future it might be other things as well.
Anyone would would want to put me on their blog roll, I would be very grateful. I will try to make it a worthwhile read!
