Marshall Tukhachevsky would be proud of that array.

Your physio will approve too!

Finished the last of my three Pz38(t)'s by Plastic Soldier Company.

A brace of PzII's is on order from S-Model to complete the German armour.

Next is the fiddly stuff: First to Fight Polish armour.

And now some Poles. Built my remaining 3 armoured cars tonight, resulting in this rather eclectic platoon:

Image

You undoubtedlty recognize the Wz.34 type. Commander in the middle, to the left a section armed with the Wz.25 7.92 machine gun, to the right a support section armed with 1918 37mm canon.

Poland fielded 80 of these vehicles in '39.

Next: tankettes.

And here are my Polish speedbumps - excuse me, tankettes.

From left to right 3 TKS's, the platoon commander in his TK3, and finally three TKS's upgunned with a 20mm canon.

Image

Certainly a great threat to any opponent on a bicycle.

Hands are still a bit wobbly, but yes, it is my intention to Pollock them all.

Battery of Soviet M1937 45mm AT guns by Plastic Soldier Company.

Image

Each gun comes with four different well done crew members, and two other barrel options.

There are two ammo boxes and lots of shells and spent casings with each gun, so plenty of possibilities to dress up a nice looking base.

Last of the early war armour: 2 S-Model Pz III C's. The kit arrived this afternoon. Good value at two for $12.00, I think, especially with the included brass barrels and other bits.

Still working at finishing a second infantry platoon for my thre armies, then I'll start painting the armour.

The second Polish platoon is done bu needs basing, except for one figure the second Germanm platoon is on the painting tray, as for the Soviets I'll be transforming a late war platoon into an early one by adding three bases, and one figure tio each of the existing bases, 22 new figures in all.

Older members may remember that quite a while back I got these two Zvezda sets as a gift:

Image

Since I was painting Soviets at the time, that set was painted rather fast - at least for my doing.

Last night I finally finished the German vignette:

Absolutely useless on the table, naturally, but I'm a sucker for vignettes.

Results of my first attempt to paint early war Polisg armour.

The problem is, the more you research, the more confused you get. Try ten sources, get twelve opinions kinda stuff.

So i came up with this version.

Image

From left to right: first colour: dark sand
Second colour added: dark earth
final colour: saddle brown.

Now to do the tracks, and add details.

Any comments?

Comparing the armoured car with the tank(ette), the latter must have been damn crowded!

Good to see you plugging away.

Yes, even with a two man crew they better like eachother a lot and not eat beans and onions too often.

The PSC Pz 38(t)'s came with all the bits to also make 2 Marder versions.

I borrowed one of the unused former Soviet 76.2mm guns.

The plan is to make a log bunker around it.

Image

If it comes out good there are two more waiting in the box.
