Recently at MOAB 2016 I picked up a cracking deal from War and Peace Games at a very nice discount. I couldn't wait to paint up a test mini. The bolt action miniatures are very nice sculpts and will look great on the table.

Time To Make Poland Great Again!
|Politics aside, I thought this was pretty funny - I did not make this image!|
Poland would have to be one of the least represented armies in Bolt Action (I know they are out there!). I have never seen them on the table in person in the Australian Scene. Poland is one of those nations that most people write off in World War II. They were an extremely proud and tough military force and the overwhelming German Blitzkrieg completely over ran them. On many occasions they gave the German's a bloody nose and lets not forget they were abandoned by the allies and betrayed by the Soviets.
I think Poland is misrepresented in the Bolt Action Rules and their national rules are quite rubbish. Their army list is quite bland however I want to create a Historical force with many options that will really change the attitude of players towards the Polish. I was quite opposed to cavalry in the game initially however after doing my research it is a must in a Polish list. Saying that I am glad they have toned down Cavalry in Version 2.
So keep an eye out for updates, I have big plans for the Poles and may not just focus on the dark days of September 1939. If I can get a few more players interested in Poland, I think I would have achieved my goal! I look forward to making and playing this army.
