Modelling With The Boot Campers: The Afrika Korps Part Two!

39 Comments

Bob takes us through his experiences with the new Bolt Action German Afrika Korps plastic kit.

Everyone is finding them much easier and faster to put together and Bob is even trying his hand at some light conversion work.

I wasn’t planning of getting any desert troops but I’m tempted.

I always kinda like the separate arms since it opened the world to soooo many conversion possibilities. Every new box I got was able to be customized so much more with bits from the leftover sprues of old boxes.

Agree on the “floaty gun syndrome”, hopefully Warlord will rework the older kits to be in line with the newer ones (like they have with the American GIs). Not sure if the new GIs are suitable for N Africa campaigns in Tunisia tho (like the old set was), or if they are late war only.

The separate guns in the old kits is what kept me away from even thinking about trying them out. Now I have no excuse.

I know it early days yet but the vibe seems sudate compared to other bootcamps. I sorta like it.

I bet there’s a lovely smell of glue in that room at this stage of proceedings!!

I never really had a problem with floating gun syndrome, it did allow for. A lot of conversation work to be done easily

Have you guys considered sending out the armies a week or two before the event so building can be done before the time?

Since Bob is one of the few I can match their BoW identity with real life one , it is good to see both him and his progress.

Some parts of the old plastic sets were a pita, but if these new sets are as good as the other (now not just as) new sets (US marines, Fallschirmjäger etc.), there´s no more Greek bread for me then!
