Inspiration: Bastonian Security Forces

In the above picture, I was very interested in the blue/brown camoflauge of the fella on the left. I believe he is some form of Serb? Going by the flag on his arm it looks like a Serbian flag.

Update: Miniatures

Hello all, I've been through a lot this past month or so and haven't really been doing much regarding my blogs.

I have, however, decided to do this project mostly in 15mm as opposed to the 20mm I had planned. This is due to space. I will also be buying the odd thing in 28mm too.

Until next time,

News: BSF Make Arrest

'Today, members of the Bastonian Security Forces arrested a man suspected of making bombs for the Civilian Militia, Seperatists, and other registered terror groups.'

'The man, who has been named as Michael O'Brien, is an Irish ex-pat who moved here sometime in the early 1990s. He is reported to have made the IED that hospitalised the President and killed his bodyguard.'

'Reports have said that, if they can't find evidence of his actions within the next 24 hours they will have to let him go.'

Factions: Bastonian Security Force

The Bastonian Security Forces (BSF) were founded, in their modern form, in 1982. It was created from a merger of the border guard and the gendermarie (despite the BSF being, essentially, a gendermarie).

They act as a paramilitary within the borders of Bastonia and the contested area of Bacravia, where the residents are extremely hostile. There are currently 500 individuals within this elite force, 100 to each region of the country. 

The BSF bolster the numbers of the everyday police force, who are unarmed, due to an increase in Militia and Seperatist activity. They have seen most of their combat in the capital city of Saint Michael's, against Militia forces.

As far as equipment goes, they have 5 active BTR-80s. Their small arms consist of AK47s and P9RC handguns, made in Hungary, one of Bastonia's neighbouring countries. Members of the BSF are noticeable for their blue urban camoflauge uniforms, with matching Castro caps.

Factions: Civilian Militia

Above: Bacravian Speratists take members of the Civilian Militia prisoner during the Siege of Saint Michael's.

Since the start of the Bacravian Seperatist's campaign, there have been several active units within Bastonia as well as in the surrounding countryside. Mainly rural areas, and places with a majority of ethnic Bastonians.

There are reportedly 200 members of the Civilian Militia, with 10 units active at any one time.

For such a rural based Militia they are surprisingly well armed, with access to AK47s and the odd RPG. Their are also  2 sniper teams active within the capital city.

The Civilian Militia have no allegiance, and have been seen to fight both Government Forces and Bacravian Seperatists. However, they have fought with the Seperatists more than anything.

The leader of the Civilian Militia is one Mikhail Kozlov, aged 45, from rural Bastonia. Fought for the Government during the first Seperatist war, getting shot in the leg and discharged. He is trained in close combat and is especially good with firearms. Wears trademark navy tracksuit and balaclava.

Within this civil war there shall be a number of factions fighting. These include the Government Forces (Bastonian Defence Force, BDF), Bacravian Seperatists, Russians, French Peacekeepers, Security Forces, and Armed Militias within the country.

I shall be highlighting these forces in a number of posts following this one. I hope you enjoy!


News: Insurgents Spotted

'Bacravian Insurgents have been spotted on the outskirts of Bastonian capital city Saint Michael's. Their ages differ, ranging from 19-25, and they all seem to be ethnic Bacravians. They are all well armed, sporting Russian made equipment, and appear to be ready for action.'

'In the past, these insurgents have been responsible for many attacks in and around Bastonia. A notable attack was the Siege of Saint Michael's Square, AKA Bloody Thursday by the media, which took the lives of 25 Bastonian soldiers in the space of 12 hours. 12 insurgents were also gunned down by security forces.'

'The Insurgent leader, only known as Sergei, was reported as saying that he would not stop until Bacravia became its own independent state, out of the influence of Russia and Bastonia.'

New Start

Hi guys, I've decided to restart my Bastonia blog as I felt it was too similar to the current conflict in Ukraine. 

I hope you don't mind, I hadn't really made much progress on it anyways. I'll be making a start on this blog again soon, hopefully.
