These are great. Brings to mind a favorite Twilight Zone episode. Charles Bronson/Elizabeth Montgomery.
2 opposing soldiers in the ruins of 'what was'.

This image comes to mind.
An invading soldier standing w (side arm holstered) he holds a box "Food", more stacked nearby. Another soldier (female smiling) is kneeling giving food to a small child. A line of civ's in tatered clothing waiting for aid.

The caption:

"They call themselves 'The Resistance'. Where are they now?
They 'Resist Our offers of Peace', they 'Resist Our Friendship' and they 'Resist Your Suffering."

I know its a bit long.. feel free to change it as you see fit.

Personal note:
I hope what ever is keeping you from enjoying your gaming as you 'once did', does not do so permanetly.

Part Time Gamer,

Thanks so much. For now baby steps. I'm really learning the meaning of patience. But I have much better motor control of my arms and fingers, and my legs are finally cooperating. I finally took a short unassisted walk (but with a cane, just in case) around the block yesterday. I hadn't been able to do that in almost 3 years. Other than coming up with posters for you guys, I've been trying to get back to a very simple project I left unfinished before all my back problems started:

PS. By the way, that Twilight Zone episode, aptly named "Two" is one of my favorites. Very little dialogue too.

We missed you on here dan. Glad you are inching back into the hobby.

Those posters are chilling with a "what if"near future vibe.

More importantly Congrats on walking and keep at it.

OUTSTANDING!
Patience and Persistence always leads to SUCCESS.
When recovering from my kidney transplant, I just kept repeating: "Never Quit".

PS. Btw, that Twilight Zone episode, aptly named "Two" is one of my favorites. Very little dialogue too.
Thank You It seems some of their best had 'few words' but 'said' so much.

Agreed. Excellent work.

How do you like this one?

Dan
PS. I just hope that some of these are still legible when reduced for use with miniatures.

Hey, that looks great, I like the poster and the rebellious graffiti on it!

Just in case … The guy in the original Polish communist poster looked like a Ken doll to me. That's why the graffiti reads "Kollaborator Ken". :)

Dan
PS. I need to find a better graffiti font too. Something with taller/slimmer letters.

Maybe I should add a little paint drip to the graffiti here. What do you think?

Check out this really simple disinformation flyer/poster that the Soviets put out during the siege of Stalingrad. They may not have had a lot of colors, but they still got out an effective-looking piece, don't you think?

I might be able to make something like that for my invasion scenario.
