DAK Bolt Action Miniatures

In painting my Desert Afrika Korps army for Bolt Action, I've run into a little snag. I really like dark yellow, and dark yellow is not the right color for DAK vehicles or troops. I should be painting the vehicles a mixture of sand color and brown, I just don't want to. This might just be a hold over from all of my Warhammer 40k painting, but I feel that historical gaming has a higher bar for what is acceptable paint scheme wise, and that if I do not commit to the more sandy color that it won't feel historical enough. Sometimes it is nice to worry about things that truly do not matter.

Regardless which way I go painting-wise, I wish everyone a happy holiday.


  1. Merry Xmas John!

    When it comes down to it, it's your models, and you should paint them however you want! Art is first and forthmost for the artist!

  2. Historical paint schemes are boring.
    I like 'cool' more than I like 'historically accurate,' so all my Flames of War stuff is painted in completely made-up camo patterns.
    And they look cool.

    Enjoy your yellow!
