BA- 82nd Airborne Done

I've finished the infantry component of my 82nd Airborne project for Bolt Action. The figures are a mixture of Black Tree Design and Warlord Games. The BTD are one of their nicer ranges and I'd recommend them to anyone looking for more variety in their forces (though I dislike the SMG guys and got far to o many useless prone guys in my order). I've just my M16 half track and 57mm AT gun crew to go (both painted and washed, awaiting highlights tonight).

This is the first time I've used the Warlord Games transfers for the divisional patches and think they are well worth the extra effort.

The force is:

  • Lt and NCO
  • Observer
  • 60mm mortar team
  • sniper team
  • bazooka team
  • 3x infantry squads (2 with LMGs)
  • 1x pathfinder squad

 The officers and observer
 Pathfinders and vet para squads
 Regular para squads with LMGs
 The infantry assembled

 LMG teams

Overall I am very happy with how they turned out and can't wait to get them on the table.



  1. Great looking troops - a nice homage to a great unit!

  2. Awesome looking outfit Craig! Nice work on these guys and the bases!

  3. Very nice! The shoulder patches look great too :-)
