Staying on the Vienna 1683 project for my next post.
I've been scrabbling for info on the Polish Infantry that was sent as part of the relief force to Vienna.
It would have saved me a lot of fuss to include these in my venture to the centre of the Challenge Quadrant, but alas, I'd already started painting these and perhaps some other too?????
From what I've read so far it only looks like 2 units were sent?
And as per usual I don't know what 2 units and what they wore?
So I've gone for a generic blue coated faced red.
The 8 figures on the left are from Essex Miniatures,
The 8 on the right are from The Assault Group.
The 3 command figures are also from TAG.
I found the flag online here on Another Miniatures Painting Blog , this and other on the site are taken from The Stockholm Roll.
The “Stockholm Roll”, a 16 m long painting depicting the entry of the wedding procession of King Sigismund III Vasa into the city of Kraków in 1605, is now on show in the Royal Castle in Warsaw.
The Essex figures were a little smaller all round than the TAG figures, so I double based them, which bought them up to the same height, which made the fit in a little better. Not perfectly, but it'll do fine for me and the Rejects.
I will need to print the flag off again, with a better quality paper, as this one is rather
wishy washy in colour.
19 x 25mm figures @5pts each
This should push me back up to 7th place, only 3 points ahead of Kerry!!
And 39 points behind Miles!
