From the Shed: Polish Home Army for Warsaw Uprising 1944 (Battlefield Miniatures).

The Wargamers Forum is running a month long ‘nostalgia’ build – members are invited to paint up something from pre 2000 (and possibly also out of production).

I dug about in the shed and found these 20+ year old Battlefield Miniatures figures, that are OOP*, for the tragic 1944 Warsaw Uprising. Wearing a mixture of looted SS smocks and civilian clothing with armbands in the Polish national colours they’ll make a nice addition to my WW2 skirmish forces (something I’ve not games in an age). I may tempoarily attach some to bigger bases to play Brian Train’s Civil Power as there is a 1944 scenario in that.

Whilst they weren’t on my projects list they were a pleasant project for this week’s hobbying.

Cheers,

Pete.

* some might be more recent ‘Blitz’ figures….

    Very nice. Really unusual topic nicely brought to life.

  6. Resurrecting old figs is a passion of mine, and you did these right. Truly a sad story, especially as the Soviets waited out their destruction outside Warsaw.
