With gaming restarted after the lockdown rules easing, starting to prepare some ideas for games and also to tinker with a few things to improve some items.
I have decided to add bow cases and arrow quivers to some of the 17C Polish cavalry - to improve the mixed look of the light horse. Also the Pancerni are all lance armed which is nice but should really be a mix - so some of them will be swapping lances for swords or war hammer - also some will get bow cases and quivers instead of muskets.
Work started on the light cavalry....

For games I use cards to select which order units move.. a set has been made for Saxe-Jarlsberg..

As the Traveller crosses towards the far side of the square he finds his way blocked by the cardinals guard. The captain of the guard informs him that the Cardinal wishes to seem and asks him to come along quietly. The Traveller politely refuses, that he is on the Kings business and to get out of his way....
The news of the altercation in the abbey square reached the King, the Cardinal was summoned - he apologised for the actions of his guard and said it had been a case of mistaken identity. The King knew otherwise, he would keep a closer eye on the Cardinal's activities in the future ...
