So who are these opponents, well think Vienna, 1683, it's got to be the Poles. Winged Hussars, Cossacks and Pancerni. I can even use some of my Saxon Cuirassiers in buff coats for German mercenaries. Also I have the benefit of already owning some relevant figures. One of the older guys at the club who is poorly gave me a bundle of figures as he knew I was into the Great Northern War and he would never get around to painting. So on searching through the bundle there is a mix of Hussars, Cossacks and a load of infantry. A couple of the figures had already been painted and though not to my taste, I have no intention of re doing his work.
So here they are the first off the production line. It had to be the Hussars. The first unit includes a couple of Hussars without wings that Dave painted added to the others.
The second unit is the iconic view of the Hussars, with 2 wings. These were a pain to glue together, yet surprisingly easy to paint, not as difficult as I always imagined they would be.
Now for writing rules I would need some opponents, so a dig around in the lead pile unearthed a handful of Ottoman figures, some were already painted and just required basing (need bases from Warbase) other were part painted so I decided to finish them off.
I'm not sure on the make of these figures but think they are from Mini-figs. To bulk these out I have made a small order to Friekorps as they were having a sale for some extra Janissary's and Azabs. If these figures are okay I'll be making future purchases from them.
