NICE!! Very lovely! I like them.

It is believed that in 1706 at the Battle of Kalisz the Polish Mounted Force consisted of 6000 Hussaria and 4000 Pancerni(Dragoons).
So...
Keep Painting :D

Ah yes, I do intend more but may stop at two Brigades. Two Each of Pancerni and Winged Hussars three light Valaks/Cossacks/ Tatars and one of Daragoons eventually. Not sure I can stretch to 10,000 though....

Superb sir, just superb,
Seriously these are really good, and you are making it very hard for me to keep my GNW project on track and not get a couple of boxes of warlord winged hussars

Lovely work!
Polish winged hussars always tend to look great no matter which company they come from.

Mark the Poles can happily fight alongside the Russians, although you might need a lot of them to fight off the Swedes.
