What's Off the Workbench today, Saturday 04/08/2018?
Its been a long time coming this latest 'Off the Workbench' post, as ever I have excuses - busy at work and latest I've been scrambling last couple of weeks to put on the first two Texas Revolution games. All major time drains, that eat into painting and modelling time.
But I have kept busy on the paining side of things with a wide range of items churned out in the last few weeks - but not so many pictures to show for it.
I finished the 28mm Warlord Games Janissaries, re-basing the musketeers, after a rethink on how the units would operate on the tabletop, I have gone for a composite Regiment of Musketeers and Swordsmen. Pleased with the way that these have come out and would certainly consider getting more to bulk out my fledgling Ottoman Army.

Away from the Ottomans I also completed a unit of Kentucky Volunteers for the latest Texas Revolution game - will need to wait until that completed to get a photo out on these guys, believe it was about 18 figures painted to represent the The Newport Kentucky Rifle Company, lead by Colonel Edward Burleson. These had all dark blue uniforms with white trim, dark blue peaked caps and a fetching white flag with 'Lady Liberty' on it.
Also got the Polish Winged Hussars finished...

The final items that I completed were another half dozen or so Norman foot soldiers to join their comrades, waiting for a chance to re-fight 1066 and all that!
What's On the Workbench today,
The unfortunate French Musketeer duo are still languishing on the workbench - just can't get the enthusiasm together to get these fellows done.
|28mm Polish Cossack Officer|
Almost finished, bar 'dipping' and basing is the commander for the Polish Cossack unit, made fro Gripping Beast Ara Light Cavalry plastics set. And yes it seems it wasn't just the Winged Hussars that had wings in the Polish army at this time, seems they were a more general indication of rank than previously thought.
There's also a 28mm Reiver Castings mounted General to be painted....
