Part of what makes this unit so unique were the black leather jackets worn by the officers, NCOs and motor crews. This made the unit stand out to the point where it earned the name "the Black Brigade" from their opponents. While I have not yet painted any officers or NCOs for this post, I have painted the infantry troops of the brigade, outfitted in their trademark greatcoats and 1916 pattern Stahlhelms. I was quite excited to work on an almost exclusively greatcoat equipped force as a change from the the paras and commandos that compose my commonwealth forces.
Anyhow, for points this post contains eighteen 28mm Polish troops for a total of 90 points. Thank you to Curt and the Minions for facilitating such an excellent event, and well done to all of the excellent hobbyists who took part! I look forward to the next year of the challenge as my backlog of unpainted minis seems to has inexplicably increased in the last few months...
Those Polish troops do look rather splendid Grant. I suspect that at some point I will end up acquiring early- and late-war forces for Chain of command, and the Poles would be an interesting one to collect.
That is 90 more points for you.
