Polish 17C Cavalry - Adding bows and quivers (2) ... all done ..

 Finished tinkering with the Polish Pancerni and Light Cavalry, two or three figures of each unit are now carry bow-case and quiver.  

I've reduced the number of Pancerni holdiing lance, so now have a mix of sword, lance and war hammer; (also a couple of other weapons found in the spares box).

Deployed ready for action....

Polish 17C Cavalry - Adding bows and quivers ...

 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....

The Saxe-Jarlsberg Army...

 Saxe-Jarlsberg is an ally of Monrovia.  They have raised their army to attempt to take the Hoflandt from Wittenberg ( a small campaign that I am currently in the process of setting up)., they may be assisted by Monrovia troops.

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

I cast some figures last year to paint up some new command stands - the army commander , infantry commander and two alternate command stands for a couple of existing infantry units to give them a new identity.

a newly raised regiment of foot - Scottish mercenaries (home-cast figures with some Sash & Sabre Scots heads)

Artillery and the dragoons will be other items from the collection as needed. The Saxe-Jarlsber cavalry will be three units I completed last year....
