Fresh from the workbench: Polish Horse

The latest unit to make its way to be photographed is this regiment of late 17th-early 18th century Polish pancerny:

As usual they are Baccus 6mm from their Great Northern War range.  The four bases form a standard unit for either Black Powder or Maurice.

Leading the unit is the first of what I plan as a series of singly based figures to represent Notables in Maurice.

Paint-converted from a Baccus ECW General, this figure was vaguely inspired by Augustus von Thiesing from the Maurice card deck.

All-in-all the Polish army is coming along OK but I still have a fair amount to do if they are to provide more than an allied contingent in a Black Powder game.

The army now consists of one unit of Hussars and two of Pancerny, with a unit of Valack light horse completing the cavalry.  The two infantry units are one of Drabants from the Sandomiercz district and Jan Sobieski's guard Janissaries.  Jan is represented as one of the two General elements.
