Chato Fighter

The Polikarpov I-15 was arguably the third best biplane fighter ever produced. The number one and two spot are held by the Gloster Gladiator and the Fiat CR42, in what order being a matter of opinion.

It is most famous for its use by Republicans in the Spanish Civil War. It also fought at Khalkhin Gol, China and as a ground attack plane on the Eastern Front.

I have painted this one in the colours of the Comintern. The Comintern was supposedly an international federation of communist parties but was actually a Soviet front organisation under Stalinist control.

The British Communist Party was a member so it seems possible that in the conditions of a civil war around King Edward's Coronation that the Comintern would sponsor an Air Force for the Communists.


  1. Very nice! How do the game mechanics work for flyers in avecw? It would be great to see some more pics of your factions. Just out of wonder, does the impending chaos codex mean we might see some more of your excellent chaos forces?

    There are no flyer rules in any of the AVBCW rules that I have seen.

    More on this later. I do intend to post a pic.
