Charge Into Battle With The Polish Uhlan From Scibor

Scibor have changed tact right now and instead of more Dwarves and other creatures they’ve added a Historical piece to their collection. See what you think of the Polish Uhlan from 1939 in 1:72 scale…

Polish Uhlan 1939

You can see the soldier here mounted up charging about with his sabre drawn. This is certainly a rare scene considering the time period but early on during World War II there would still have been armies that used cavalry that weren’t big metal cans.

Uhlan were traditional light cavalry that have roots back in the 18th Century. During World War II proper they ended up not fulfilling their traditional role although they did retain their sabres and there were a few recorded cavalry charges.

What do you think of this individual?
