Bolt Action - Review: Warlord Games Zis 6 Truck
The Zis 6 was a general purpose soviet 6 x 4 truck which was built from 1933 onwards and may be better known as the vehicle that was first to mount the multiple launchers (Katyusha).
In Bolt Action it is classified as a normal truck and has the following stats:
Inexperienced - 31 Points
Regular - 39 Points
Veteran - 47 Points
Weapons - None
Damage Value - 6+
Transport capacity - Up to 12 men
Tow - Light Howitzer, Light or medium AT, Light or medium AA
May add a pintle-mounted MMG for 15 points
Warlord Games have one for sale for 17 Pounds and I recently had the opportunity to assemble and paint one. The Kit comes in a number of parts being the chassis, wheels, tray, doors, roof, driver and accessories.
I painted it using some AK olive drab colours for the metalwork and a parasite brown for the tray. AK washes were used to weather the vehicle and some chipping was added to make it look used.
