Welcome to Valiesk!
Welcome to the Republic of Valiesk, a fictional Baltic island-nation which has seen much bloodshed in the last century, and is now, again, heading towards civil war. This will serve as a background for wargaming (and, later on, possibly RPGing).
In this blog I'll explore Valiesk's bloody history from the Russian Civil War through the Great Patriotic War and the Cold War to Perestroika, independence, modern dictatorship, overthrow and ultra-modern civil war. I'll also explore the current politics of this hapless nation, and the 15mm miniatures that will represent the various factions in the civil war (and the wars of the past).
So welcome, enjoy your stay, and keep your AK-74 loaded!
