Those charging cavalry look real fine! Not something I am likely to be after, but NICE!  Smiley

AAArrgghhhhH!!! !!!

Bloomin' Polish!

I've found the organisation of the armour and the infantry. Does anyone have an OOB for a cavalry squadron?

Also, any suggestions for a limber for the guns, and unmounted horses for horse holders?

Not that I'm planning a Polish WWII army, you understand. Just doing the research.

For horse holders we could supply the artillery crewman on the left, plus some regular artillery horses:



I'd have to check on limbers though.

Last night I came across this which looks to be a good guide. In future I want to field a cavalry regiment, hence the research. Hope this helps?

You have your OOB.


The Poles commercially produced the Tchanka rather than just sticking a HMG on any old wagon.  While the range does not have a Polish Tchanka both the Poles and the Russian have incredibly similar helmets. so you can use SV49 from the WW2 Russian range and just paint it up as Polish

And of course they can fight both your early war German and early war Russian.

No excuses now Nobby

Why couldn't I find that on Wiki?  Angry

Thank you Orcs.  Cheesy

I'm thinking an element of the 1st or 2nd Light Tank Co (7TP's), supporting elements of a cavalry regiment (mounted sqn, HMG and AT platoons) and other bits of the cavalry brigade  (75mm battery, rifle company or platoon,  lots of TKS, some Wz34).

Covers most of it I'm thinking.

I have collected some quite unusual books on WW2 Polish from Polish Authors so I guess they have access to better source  material

Thanks Will. Perhaps I should have said I have enough figures to keep me painting for another 132 years. 

So if today was my 182nd Birthday I would live to 314.  I would still be a millennia or two behind Techno, but that would be a rather grand old age

Is there something about the Pendraken forum that confers long life?

Does immortality come with buying sufficient Pendraken goodies?

I may end up lying on my lead mountain a la Smaug.

There is a superstitious belief among Wargamers that when you paint your last unpainted figure you die.  Extrapolating this has brought the further suggestion that as a wargamer you cannot die until you have painted your last figure. Thus the bigger your lead pile the longer you will live.

This  theory does not take into account that  your  long suffering other half finally gets fed up of rooms full of wargame paraphanalia and rams each figure one by one where "the sun don't shine "- A good recommendation to stick to smaller scales here. ( just think 28mm Macedonian Pike - OUCH) Cheesy

I've never played WWII, but for some reason among all ranges I have a weak spot for the Polish. Perhaps it's the cavalry, or maybe the tankettes.  Smiley
And that convertible car is just wonderful. I might just have to have one regardless of playing games with it.

Hi

Just had a look at a picture of Polish troops invading Zaolzie (Cieszyn Silesia) 1938 at http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?p=2012693#p2009863 and I'd say that you could use the French Motorcycle troops as Polish :-





Although they do seem to have taken the leather liners out of their helmets  Undecided

Cheers
