Yesterday, I received Army Group North's model of the PzKpfw 38(t) from Brigade Games (thumbs up service, BTW), which is an excellently cast resin kit, and which I'll be utilizing as the Czechoslovakian Army's excellent Praga LT vz.38 tank. And today, I received my order of 28mm Czech Army soldiers from TMPer "EmilvonKarwin", from the Czech Republic. I can inform everyone here that these are some very beautifully rendered and cast figures, which I highly recommend to anyone wanting to collect and/or game an Interwar army that's "unconventional"!

Now, I have the nucleus of a small Czechoslovakian force that can counter any "Case Green" efforts by the enemy. And it wasn't very long ago that no one would think of fielding a WWII Polish army, complete with their famous lancers.

Thank you, Brigade Games, AGN, and Emil!

Does any manufacturer produce Czech 1938 figures in 15mm?

None that I'm aware of, although Peter Pig has a WWII line which would be something to look into, especially since they have a spare heads range to help you customize your army.

Good luck, Pulaskis Legion!

You can also use them for the Slovak division in USSR.

Did you get some from Emil, too, troopwo?

Does he have a website or contact info?

Emil, do you have a colour reference for the Czechoslovak troops?

EmilvonKarwin11 Jul 2008 10:58 a.m. PST

Gallowglass, I'm lagging behind with painting my boys. I'm going to have some reference for the CZ infantry. I've bought several pot of paint from a Czech company AGAMA. link
The C 19M shade is the Czechoslovak uniform colour. I use the 3 layer method so I'm going to use it as the first layer. The next layers will be toned down probably with some light flesh tones.

Look at this: hp19.cz/uvod.php
They have the uniforms in the most correct colour, I'd say.

S'cuse threadomancy.

Any more of these on the way, Emil?

Paul, the sculptor, is really busy, so the new Czechoslovaks will be ready when he finds some time in between other jobs.

I've tested the paint made by AGAMA. … I'm really disappointed … , in the pot it looks all right, but dried it looks quite different, so I've mixed my own. I hope to have them painted soon to show them on my websites.

"Paul, the sculptor, is really busy, so the new Czechoslovaks will be ready when he finds some time in between other jobs. "

Yeah, he's a busy man alright!

"I've tested the paint made by AGAMA. … I'm really disappointed … , in the pot it looks all right, but dried it looks quite different,"

I HATE it when that happens. Bloody annoying!

"so I've mixed my own. I hope to have them painted soon to show them on my websites."

Hooray! Can we persuade you to post up the mixing formula??

Looking forward to seeing them painted up. I'm sure you'll do a fantastic job on them.

EmilvonKarwin06 Oct 2008 11:29 a.m. PST

The formula, I've developped, is Foundry Moss A + Vallejo burnt umber. Hard to say how much of each as I mix them just to fit the shade I've seen on the reenactors' uniforms. Then it is possible to use either Foundry Moss A on its own as the midtone, and to tone it down with some light flesh shade to paint the highlight; or to start toning down the combo Moss A + burnt umber, to obtain the midtone and highlight. Now I prefere the Foundry Moss A as the midtone. :)

BTW Chieftain miniatures have released Panzer 38t, the version representing the original CZ tanks only painted in Wehrmach colours.

Gallowglass Inactive Member06 Oct 2008 12:02 p.m. PST

Cheers. Might be time to get a few pots of Foundry paints then. I normally use Vallejo, with a few other bits and pieces.

Chieftain's 38t looks lovely.

Glad that I happen to find this posting as I have started to build a small 1938 Czech force in 20mm using Rolf Hedge Slovakian figures and some Italian Ifantry. I had figured that the uniform would be brownish in color but now I have a better idea so that I can mix the craft paint.

I Have since 2008 raised an army of 28mm Czech Army using figures from Emil and adopting Crusaders Polish and some Italian figures.

Any chance of some pictures of either scales, viking?
