Adding to the Library (5) ...

Soldiers & Weapons Polish-Ottoman war books...

Nice books, the main text is in Italian (which I can just about read, with help from online translate tools)  The colour plates are nicely done and cover the troops types - the text for these is in Italian and English.

Polish Light Cavalry ... reworked....

 While I had the 17th century storage boxes out, I noticed my Polish Light Cavalry needed some attention, I'd painted the two units, one in a green theme and the other a blue theme - a bit too 'uniform'. So I've repainted/rebased them to give a better look.


The original green and blue themed units....
On the workbench and altering hats ....
Some of the coats repainted and blue/green/red/brown now intermingled....much better than before

Tatars .. recruiting more ...

The current tatar force ...

Recently I spent a bit of time casting twelve more, 
this will give me a total of 32 +  three command, enough to make a good sized raiding force or as allies for a potential cossack army.
