GNW COMMAND AND SWEDISH GUARD

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Those Units look real pretty. Well done!

To Clarify the origin of the name for those Guards:

The Polish Guard was raised from Saxons and named only Polish Guards to function as a Honor Guard in Warsaw when The King August the Strong was there. No polish "gentlemen" served with those unit even as August has hoped so by naming the unit that was in an attempt to inspire enthusiasm.
Their was instead a polish Crown Army...by name "Army" alone of about 5000-10000 individuals that fought side by side with the Saxons.

There has been the 1st Foot Guard later and the 2nd Foot Guard, Polish/yellow laces and Saxon/ white laces who followed after the "polish Adventure".

Cheers,
