Polish 10th Cavalry Brigade (Motorized) 1939

Hi all!
I have been busy with work and I took a business trip to Holland. It was a good trip and I traveled a good part of the country and ended up across the border into Germany.

     I wanted to share an on going project that I have been working on for a while in different scales. I started to paint 20 mm miniatures over 4 years ago to fight battles skirmish battles from Scott Fisher and Nathan Forney Skirmish Campaigns book "Poland 39-The Black Brigade". A link to there website is here: Skirmish Campaigns Poland 39

A picture of the unit sometime before 1939.

An example of the first battle in the book

     Recently I switched to 28 mm figures after finding a company that makes miniatures of the 10th Cavalry Brigade.  The company is Gorgon Studios, here is a link to there website as well! Gorgon Studios.
Last night I spent a few hours painting up the BAR section. I painted the command section a number of months ago before I had my blog so I am posting them all here now.

The command group painted by me.

This is the BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) pack of miniatures, again painted by me.

All the painted figures that I have finished so far, I have more so you will see more soon.

Here is the same figures but showing the details of the back of the figures.

     I have to order some more infantry to fill out the ranks of the the unit for the first battle. I also have a box of plastic early war German Infantry. The great thing about the battles is that most have some armor, yes  it is early war armor so I find this transition period of Armor and aviation history fascinating to wargame.  Check back from time to time to see how my painting project continues.

Have a good week!!

  1. These Poles look great Mark! I'm looking very much forward to getting this up on the gaming table. Its a favorite period of WW2, the era of Blitz Krieg and Stukas. I actually have a few Foundry early war Germans (on motor cycle), that we could use for this!
