Early War Miniatures - Polish WW2 Infantry in 20mm

Early World War 2 has always interested me, and after my practically perfect wife gifted a copy of Battlegroup: Blitzkrieg for me, I knew that I had to gather up some combatants and paint them up.

I started with Case White. Even with a poorly planned general strategy and outnumbered in most battles, the Polish troops inflicted many casualties onto the rampaging Wehrmacht.

I had already settled on Polish armor from the excellent First to Fight, but I needed some infantry. I did some research and found a splendid source. This is a figure from the affordable Early War Miniatures out of their Polish Early War collection.

It is 20mm and it has a nice bit of detail on it. In addition to this marching pose, there are many other infantry poses, spare equipment, command figures, anti-tank rifles, machine guns, cavalry, and more.

I should be able easily pick the belt pouches, rifle, collar, and other details and equipment.

Now... what colors and technique should I use?

    1. Hi Richard! I headed over there. You weren't kidding; he's done a lot of work during the 1939 period.

      Thanks for the tip!
