For Bolt Action I am in the process of painting some partisans to fight Simon’s Italians. I have been looking for some vehicles and Warlord Games actually make a fair few civilian models for Bolt Action. Looking through the Bolt Action website I quite liked the look of the Civilian 1000Kg Dropside Truck so I got one.
Having given the model a white undercoat, I then gave the rear of the truck (which was separate) a basecoat of Vallejo 70912 Tan Yellow. I then gave that a wash of Seraphim Sepia Shade which was a little too light, so I then gave a wash of Agrax Earthshade. I also gave the chassis, the tyres and wheels a base coat of Vallejo 70.862 Black Grey.
After much thought, I decided to take the risk and paint the bodywork of the truck red.
I used Citadel Mephiston Red as the base colour and I am quite pleased with how it turned out.
It still needs a wash and weathering, but the colour works for me.
I then took some Abaddon Black to paint the windows and chassis.
I also decided in the end to paint the running boards red.
