From the Shed: The balance of my Polish Home Army.

I decided to get the remainder of my (newer) Polish Home Army figures finished so I wouldn’t have them sat about half done. The majority of the second batch are the excellent TDQ figures available from CP Models. A few Blitz figures, Sgt’s Mess casualties and some Ceasar plastics round out the force.

Now they are done and boxed away and can await me writing up some scenarios for them.

Cheers,

Pete.

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….

From the Shed: Zuk Vans

I got the stl file for this Cold War Polish classic from thingiverse, rescaled it to 1/72nd and ran a few off my 3d printer. It should make a great little run around for my Warsaw Pact forces.

I’ve been asked by a friend to print him out a larger one as a transport for his Zone Alfa team. Can’t wait to see what he does with it.

Cheers,
