Bolt Action - Project Finland Continuation War

This had to come and now it came through. I've been planning to build Finnish late war army for Bolt Action. Along with that I will also make thematic gaming table depicting area of Karelian isthmus. Finland fought hard there to repel Russian massive attack and managed it. Thus stopping Russians and saving Finland. The idea came from a Finnish movie Tali-Ihantala, which is story of those dramatic days on July 1944.

As a start of the project I bought some Finns I found from local gaming store. The collection was bit limited, but I managed to grab 105 mm howitzer and 37 mm  AT gun. So it starts...
37 mm Bofors AT gun. A bit obsolete at 1944.
105 Howitzer, not so obsolete at all.
Gun crew in summer uniform.
From other side.
FO's converse.
There wil be more coming...

  1. Look great. Have had Finish troops on my mind for a while.

  2. I forgot to mention I have also seen the movie and it is fantastic.

    1. Really, thats nice! Yes, I like it too very much. Those were really decisive days for my country, but they held the line.

  3. Do you know if there are any other figure options in 28mm besides what Warlord is offering? I'm doing mine in 20mm using the piss-poor Strelets plastics since my regular opponents already have soviets done in 20mm.
