First look at my Polish Winged Hussars

These guys will be fighting my Muscovites, Zaporozhian Cossacks, Swedes and Ottoman Turks.

Still a lot of work to go on them, and I'll print their full story when I'm a bit further advanced.

They were the elite troops of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth which was one of (and possibly THE) super-power of eastern Europe up until the late 1700s when Austria, Prussia and Russia eventually overran it and divided its lands amongst them.

Also working on a presentation of early Russian history to Mike Kracium's history class at Bluffton High School for later in the month using my figures and the new Smartboards technology at the school.

Keeping busy, even if I'm not posting as regularly as I should.
