One of the iconic vehicles of WWII was the M3A1 (White) scout car. A large number were sent to Russia under lend lease and were used in a number of roles, including by rota razvedi, Soviet reconnaissance troops.
In Bolt Action the Russians can take them as a lend lease recce option instead of a Soviet BA 64 armoured car. A Regular M3A1 scout car is 86pts and comes with a 50 cal but for 15 pts each you can add up to two more 30cal MMGs.
As soon as I saw the new Warlord Games M3A1 I knew my Soviets needed one, hell so do my Americans!
I decided that the scout car needed a crew of infantry manning the machine guns so have added 4x Warlord Games plastic Soviet infantry and am pretty happy with the result. I also used two of the crew that comes with the scout car (driver and NCO with a map) using a simple head swap to Sovietise them.
The resin model is very, very nice Minmal flash and lots of stowage moulded on to give it a great look. I can't wait to terrorise the Germans with this. I also intend to add a M3 half track to motorise one of my squads and make my Soviets into a more mechanised force representing a motostrelkovy platoon.
