Bolt Action - Review: Blitzkrieg Miniatures Valentine

Hi Bolt Actioneers! It's been a long time since I've posted here, and it's been an even longer time since I've painted any 28mm! (Steve saunters into the joint and shows off a Blitzkrieg Minatures Valentine! - J)

Before I left for New Zealand, my friend Miles hooked me up with a Blitzkrieg Miniatures Valentine.
That village is perhaps a bit TOO medieval...
I'll keep the review short, and suffice it to say it was a fantastic model. The cast was crisp (I had to do such little cleanup, I found it odd), and everything went together nicely. In fact, it was very few parts so assembly probably took me less than five minutes.

I decided I liked the look of the tank as a Lend Lease vehicle, and so it will see service on the Eastern Front. I airbrushed the base coat using Vallejo Surface Primer Russian Green. Then it got a liberal highlight with Vallejo green grey. I then used an oil wash to bring out details, weathered it, and called it a day. More about my technique on Soviet vehicles can be seen here:

Next to a Warlord Games T-34/85.
Thanks for reading!

(Thanks Steve! - J)
