We've been chatting about this new range here: http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,12819.0.html taking your input on board for our new range of WWII Polish.  The first batch arrived from the sculptor today, so here's some quick pics of what we've got so far:

Infantry - Firing / Walking / Kneeling


Infantry - LMG + loader / AT rifle + No.2 / MMG + loader


Infantry - Mortar crew x 2 / Art spotter / Officer shouting / Radio Operator / Senior Officers x 2


More to come next month!

Hello Leon

Very nice, of course my mind is churning with what else I can use these for  :D :D.

Shame they don't have puttees  :D.

Although the short lived pre-war French paratroops come to mind....

The shouting officer - is that Major Gumby?

When you say "short lived" ... was that due to some failure in training methods?

I'd like to say it was the unfortunate accidents that happened when live sparks from their Gauloises hit the canopy :) but it was more a case of a different stategic direction as in "Paratroops, hmmph this will never get off the ground. " - and they didn't :)

Thanks for all the comments!

We can be pretty quick on the infantry side of things when we're on top of stuff!  We've got to get the artillery pieces done in plasticard though, so those will delay the release date on this range.  I'd imagine it being Jan/Feb next year hopefully.

I've just heard back from the sculptor on that, they usually wore anklets/short puttees, which he has put on these.

Early next year release will give me time to paint up some Germans, which I've had for over 5 years now, untouched in their bags etc :-[.

I wasn't casting aspersions on the Polish (look like a great range), I was just harking back to my perennial complaint on the lack of figures in tunic and puttees  :) (apart from WW1 British). Actually this came about when I was thinking that the Poles could proxy in as Slovaks/Czechs really well - apart from the lack of puttees  :).

Actually with a naval collar added they could also be used as Italian Marines:-



And I imagine that the senior officers will find themselves thrown back through time to the Russo-Polish War  :).

The designer suggested Italians for puttees, but I'd need to check the figures at this end.
