    Thanks mate.

    Here are their "successors", so to speak, the Latvian Waffen-SS.

    Love the flags-so unusual in 20thC armies.

    Something of a mixed bag now, more Chinese, a few dwarves and a LotR plastic ruin.

    Thanks Codsticker.
    While Warseer had a bit of down-time (or at least "too ugly and broken to work"-time) I took pictures of the last mini I made last year, a Chinese Sd Kfz 222. And a small forest I based.

    Judging by the info on your blog, the Latvians were supplied by the Germans so I assume they were in a similar position to the Finns; is that right?

    Similar, they "invited" the Soviets in 1940 to build army bases and reeducate non-communists (and didn't fight like the Finns), so when Barbarossa started they were quite enthusiastic and hoped it was a liberation. There's a book about the Baltic states in the 1940's called Between Giants by Prit Buttar, that title says it all really.

    Re: mrtn's muddy puttees

    Last Bolt Action tournament I, by a whim of chance, managed to win Best Allied, so I walked home with a "US Armoured Fist" box from Warlord Games. Three halftracks and thirty of the old American plastic infantry. Being the contrarian that I am I'm not painting them as vanilla Americans, of course. After some studying I've started to convert them to late war French, or more specifically the 1re DFL, Free French with a mix of American and British kit, as well as anything French they could get their hands on.

    Here is the first squad:

    Wonderful kit bashing mrtn, and yet another off-the-beaten-track force.
