Wargaming Musings?

I'm a bit of a butterfly in terms of my attention and sticking to gaming projects long term isn't my strongest point. On the bright side, atleast I flit between the same things. Expect an ecclectic medley of Moderns, Dark Ages, Quar and Early Wild West, almost all in 28mm... (with some 1/48 moderns thrown in... )

Painting update - (20mm) Polish Solidarity IS-3

Well, my Polish 'Solidarity' partisans have got their heavy support up and running at last :) For those that missed the original post - I wanted to include an IS-3 in my CWGH games as I think they look funky. The best way I could find to do this was for my Polish anti-communist partizans to 'liberate' one of the two IS-3s that the Soviets had given Poland in the late 40's as a gesture of communist solidarity. These tanks were just put on display, and never saw any use (Poland had over 100 IS-2s at this time). 'In setting' the tank would have been loaded up to be moved for re-painting (and looking at it, boy did it need it!),  instead it was re-purposed - the only repainting it got was having the Polish army eagles replaced with flags! I decided to keep the rest of the weathering light, as otherwise with the rust it'd look more like it should have been on the scrap heap...

A poor picture of my attempt to put the solidarity emblem on the side of the tank

No idea what stats I'll being using in FoF, although I'll probably start with a T-55 and make it worse :)


  1. It looks rather good mate. Is it worth edging the writing to make it stand out more?

  2. Cheers :) Thats a good thought mate - if I'm honest, I'm not sure if my brush work is up to edging it... I might have to have to try on something else, and then come back to it once I've got an idea if I'm actually good enough to pull it off!

  3. Perhaps get one of the micro pens forget the proper name for them now
