Krysten of Ostrow’s Pancerni Banner
These Polish pancerni from TAG have taken me ages to paint. From the front they look nothing special but when you see the bottom two pictures you will see that the rumps of the horses are all covered in a rich panoply which was highly decorated. These are very nice figures but TAG has gone a little over the top in equipping them. They are armed with a) lance b) shield c) two pistols d) bow and arrows e) carbine f) sword so getting their horses to get up to a gallop might be a bit of an issue. Also the standard bearer is a conversion of a drummer who is, oddly, supplied without a drum (he just carries two drumsticks!).
I really should be back on the ACW by now but I have one more small addition to this Polish army to complete in the next couple of days. I'll post that by the weekend.
On an aside, I always find January a highly productive month for painting - grey nights and cold weather spurs me to my painting table.
