Feudal & Medieval Polish - Part 13
The Warwagons and Handgunners.
As part of my ongoing project to create a Polish army my next installment of the army is their warwagons and skirmishing handgunners. All of the elements are from a Polish company called QR Miniatures [except for the loose pavise which are from Irregular code HR28]
Codes PTM8 [five different sculpts, one with attached pavise] and PTM12 [two different wagons].
The range is well sculpted, cleaning cast and excellent to paint up. I have lots more of their 13 Years War castings to add to my army.
The warwagons come in pairs, one with horses and the other on a solid base as if parked up overnight. I ordered eight wagons and used the stationary ones as baggage elements as per the previous blog entry for the Polish army project.
I decided to give them lots of crew and provide infantry escorts to make them appear formidable.I finished the sides of the wagons with transfers to give them a national appearance.
After completing the warwagons I had eight handgunners left over. The army list only required two elements but I decided that I would paint them all up and have two spare elements because otherwise I just end up with random unpainted metal hanging around in my spares box. One of the casting had what we would recognise as a much more modern traditional looking handgun so I put those four castings on the same bases to create Regular looking elements with the other four castings mixed up to create Irregular looking elements.
