Per has also been working on the British 8th Army, working on turning them into the Commonwealth forces sent over from New Zealand.

Everyone is really impressed by the new Bolt Action plastics and it is interesting to see the variety in approaches people are taking to their armies.

That’s it for Friday at this Boot Camp weekend. People are still busy hobbying and getting their armies ready to head to the tabletop tomorrow.

Come back this Saturday to see everyone’s progress and how their armies fair in the battles of Bolt Action’s Western Desert.

The Desert trench board looks awesome. Will have to suggest that to my wargaming group for the next project.

Looking forward to following this over the weekend. I love bolt action but not really done anything to do with the North Africa campaign before. This will be a good push in to it.

The light in the room is so eerie, it’ll be interesting to see the effects when the games are covered

Looking good! Wish I was there. One of these days I’ll make it across for a boot camp. I loved my Bersagliere in FOW. I wouldn’t mind some small raiding forces for Bolt Action.

I’ve always wanted to start an Afrika Korps army. Love the stories love the battles. Excited to follow all weekend

The Western Desert campaign has always been the most interesting for me as it featured so many quirky incidents in the often confused fighting. It also had an environment that was equally as inconvenient for both sides.
Very nice prize. The gaming tables are superb.

Looks like a great weekend.
I don’t play bolt action yet.
It looks very tempting.

Looks like fun. I have just finished painting Boba Fett for Star Wars Legion and working on a camo scheme for the Imperial Scouts.
