Polish People's Army: Mechanised Battalion
Those of you who follow the society pages will probably know that we took over 20ft x 8ft of MoD real estate a few days ago, and had a massive game of Team Yankee. My own force was a mechanised battalion of the 8. (Dresden) Mechanised Division, and is something I've been working on for many months now. I thought I'd share a photo of the whole army in all its olive drab glory!
Hope you enjoyed! The megagame officially marks the end of what we've called "The Year of Team Yankee", but I'm sure the Poles will be out in force many more times to come.
|The entire battalion comes to around 120pts.|
|Mechanised infantry company - smaller than their Soviet counterparts, with fewer RPGs and PKMs.|
|BWP-1s, eight per company.|
|Converted battalion command post and BMP-1 KSh.|
|T-55s - these are from Plastic Soldier Company.|
|T-72M tanks, some of the few in the Polish arsenal.|
|Szyłka anti-aircraft guns.|
|A platoon of AGS-17 automatic grenade launchers.|
|120mm mortars, using QRF miniatures and homemade rules.|
|An absolute pleasure and a joy to paint. One of my favourite projects for some years.|
