From DaveX: 28mm Austrian Napoleonics and WWII Polish Airborne (45 Points)
This week I managed to get 9 miniatures painted. I am adding to my slowly growing Austrian Napoleonics with these four by Perry Miniatures. They will be representing the 4th Line Infantry.
For those that don't know me I am a massive advocate for Poland in WWII, well Polish Forces in General. I am obsessed with their history, their resilience and their sheer determination in times of war. This was all inspired by a visit to Poland in 2016. I have a rather large 28mm 1939 Polish Force. I made Poland "Great Again" in the Australian Bolt Action scene by taking them to the Podium in Australia's largest Bolt Action Tournament and raised awareness for early war forces with rubbish national rules! Continuing with my Polish obsession, I have been working on their airborne for Market Garden. These are my next 5 offerings from Warlord Games Plastics.
I like to use simple techniques in my painting that gives maximum results. This week should bring me a handy 45 points.
Great work Dave! Your Polish paras are excellent. I particularly like the work you put into their faces and muted fleshtones.
Your Napoleonic Austrians are brilliant as well, looking suitably Viennese with the sprigs of edelweiss in the shakos and their oh-so-optimistic white-on-white uniforms. With you being a fan of the Poles have you any Galician troops in your Austrian collection? If not, it's a great way to get some very stylish (and nasty) Polish uhlans into your force.
45 points for your growing tally, Dave. Well done!
