We’re excited to announce our new Rapid Deployment paint system that will help get your units on the tabletop in record time!

Developed in conjunction with Army Painter, our fantastic new range of paints have been formulated to help get your miniatures on the table quickly and effectively.

We’ve created a range of paint sets that fit alongside our existing range of Bolt Action sets. When used in conjunction with the core set, you’ll have all the paint you need to get your platoon ready for battle!

The Rapid Deployment Fast Paint System

  1. Give the model a coat of primer
  2. Block in the main colours – no need for shading or highlights
  3. Liberally apply Quickshade and leave to dry for 24 hours
  4. Varnish and base the model

Tom painted this Gebirgsjager NCO using the colours from the Core and German Army paint sets.

We’ve used the NCO from our Bolt Action Gebirgsjagers Squad to illustrate how simple the system is – Tom managed to get the whole 10-man squad painted in a couple of hours!

Tom: I really like how easy it is to get a good result with the new system – as someone who just wants to get an army on the table, being able to get a whole squad finished in an evening is amazing.

The paints are well formulated and cover the model without needing lots of thin coats. The dip finishes things nicely, without the need for excessive touch-ups or complicated processes.

This is the perfect place to start if you’re new to painting miniatures. It’s a good way to find your feet before moving on to more advanced techniques.
