Crisis in the Balkans

Some pictures of the French and Italians in action. The French are SHQ 20mm while the Italians are Bandara 20mm figures. The village is from paper terrain. If you look to close, aside from my poor painting on the figures, you will also see all the errors I made in putting together the village. Patience is not one of my virtues and with this village I worked fast. I actually built a lot of it in about an hour with a second hour spent basing and flocking. Nonetheless, although far from perfect I think the village looks fine and will work well. Although it is 15mm scale I think it can work okay if not perfect for the WWII 20mm as well as the 15mm Russian Civil War stuff.

The figures themselves are all great and easy to paint. The Italians were bought from Liberation miniatures and I think look very nice.

Looking good so far. Fictional conflicts whether between historical factions or fictional factions are always fun.

Thanks, I tend to like fictional settings as it lets me use my imagination a bit and craft things the way I feel. I usually do both sides as well some even if other people play its set in my world.

My real project of this nature is the Austrian Russian War of 1910 or something like that. I played with some friends at one point and it was a bunch of fun, had it set in Poland. I am thinking of redoing it in 15mm in a fictional Balkan setting. Gives me a reason to throw in the Eureka Bulgarians and Serbs as well.

Thanks for the comment and I hope you continue to enjoy the blog.
