The invasion of Poland Begins

To invade Poland, one must have Panzers... I chose Panzer 1s!  Already considered outdated for the invasion, they were used and in large numbers.  Usually I would go for no more than 3 of a kind for some tanks but the thought of 5 Panzer 1s and a Panzer 1 Befehlswagen was too much of an opportunity to pass.  Being a bit silly I decided to paint them all at once in addition to a Panzer 35T and a Krupp Ammunition car.  The Panzer 1 horde is primarily for a scenario in Battlegroup Blitzkrieg however they should also make their way into a Bolt Action Armoured Platoon some day.

I have also been working on a table.  I will post my terrain separately but here is a nice sneak peek.

The invasion of Poland Solo play mini games developed by myself...



  1. Superb vehicles and terrain. Will be very interested in following your solo play invasion of Poland.
    Keep up the excellent work.

    1. Thanks Pat, have been play testing some solo play and it certainly has been interesting, I basically use bolt action mechanics but completely throw out points and list building mechanics for fun and themed games.
