Wojtek the Polish Soldier bear

I painted the above figure for Chris Polish war gamer and painter extraordinaire!  Chris also picks up dinner on the way to our weekly game night so I thought this Battle Front Minature of Wojtek was a fitting tribute. Wojtek fought with the Polish expeditionary force in Italy and was present at Monte Casino. Latter he retired to the UK, like many Polish Veterans, specifically the Edinburgh Zoo. I hope Chris will tell more of Wojtek's story on his own blog http://dobroni.blogspot.com/ at some point in the future
