28mm Partisans: The gathering storm...
Almost three years ago, I first posted images of the start of my 28mm partisan force. At that time, they were seeing action in skirmish-scale games - Operation Squad and the like. Since then I have been adding bits and pieces as the mood took me, and they have done good service as "inexperienced" troops in my Bolt Action Red Army force. But its only recently that I felt that I have enough of them to field in larger engagements as an stand-alone force, using the BA Partisan selector.
So here are the core infantry as they stand at the moment. They are deliberately generic - I wanted to be able to use them in games set on the Eastern Front, the Balkans or in northern Italy. They are a mix of figures from a broad range of suppliers - partisans from Warlord Games, Artisan Designs, Westward and Black Tree, Volksturm and civilians from Westwind, Republicans from the Empress Spanish Civil War range, a fair few plastic figures from the Warlord Red Army boxes, and even some Muttonchop VBCW figures.
Specialists, support, HQ and transports can be seen here.
