Poles and Ottomans

Finally got around to taking some pictures of the latest figures off the painting table, namely some more Poles and some Ottomans. firstly for the Poles some extra medium cavalry, namely Pancerni. I already had 6 bases of these painted up as auxiliaries for my GNW Saxon troops. These figures are all from Essex miniatures, love the poses of their horses but hate the ridiculously small bases they are on.

Now to back up the cavalry I have also done some of the infantry. I've based these up with 3 figures a base instead of the 4 that I use for western troops. Again the figures are all from Essex and were given to me by Dave.

2nd regiment
Now to make sure my ottomans keep pace I completed up 3 more units of Azabs in there later uniforms. Most of these figures are the ones I got from Friekorps with a few from Minifigs mixed in. The Friekorp figures are rather slender in comparison to the Essex i'm using for the Poles.

For the first unit I went for a Jade green colour with red which have come out better than I expected. this was because the handful of Minifigs I had were already started in this colour. The other 2 units have dark blue tunics with red trousers. Looking back I wish i had done the headgear in red and may go back to change it.

Azabs
Next up I have a couple of bases of Cossacks to finish off, then I'll need to buy some cavalry bases from Warbase as I ran out for the next 3 bases of Pancerni. I'll then take a little break with some of my Austrian Napoleonics before coming back to the rest of the Polish infantry.

Know what you mean about Essex bases, bloody things are difficult to mount on their stands!
