1938 Czech sources
« on: July 07, 2019, 11:04:05 PM »
I was speaking to somebody on another forum a while ago who was building a 1938 Czech force. I mentioned I had some books in the pile and guess what have just found them.
If you are that chap give me a shout!

I’m not that chap but I do have a Czech force for 1938 and would be curious as to the titles of said books.

Sounds like a decent project. Hope they find you so that project can get going.

"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

It's a fun little force that can be used historically to fight Sudeten Nazis and Hungarians and with not too much'what if', invading Germans and Poles. The beauty is that it does double service as Slovaks vs Poles, Hungarians and Russians. The only bits missing are anti-tank guns and heavy machine guns. Emil Horky has a beautiful little, Paul Hicks sculpted, range of Czech troops and a couple of Gendarmes. I've supplemented these with various Warlord, Empress and other conversions. Sudeten Germans are easily made using the Tsuba German Revolution and Eureka's Soviet partisans. Mad Bob supplies a decent LT vz.35 and even Disney has pitched in with a 1/55 Tatra for some local flavour. Must get around to finishing the force, it looks like I will have to scratch build the AT gun and then manufacture some serious bunkers.

Would love that! Most kind sir but only if the gentleman who wanted it first doesn’t turn up.

Just remembered it was on GWP and I seem to be irretrievably signed out from there.

I suspect that ship has sailed.
If anybody wants these and is willing to pay postage let me know.
