Just finished off the Saxon artillery, the crews are based and the guns are loose, I've based the crews to designate the size of gun, 4 figures for a positional gun, 3 figures for a light gun, the figures are a mix of Essex and Dixon an odd Halmark one may have slipped in as well, now just some bloody Poles to paint and this army is finished.

Went to Partizan yesterday, another excellent show by the Newark lads, big queue to get in but it moved quite quickly, spent my time in the queue speaking to a rather nice gentleman from Cambridge, lots of nice games on show, shame that I didn't see anything from this era, but some of them truly took my breath away, anyone who hasn't been to Partizan is really missing a treat. Finally talked myself into joining the Pike and Shot Society and bought some ECW cavalry from Peter Pig, these will be making an appearance as Irish Jacobite cavalry. Next up on the site the first of my Polish infantry just got to finish basing them.

Also just finished painting the first unit of Polish Infantry and started the winged hussars, looking forward to Partizan this weekend,Peter Pig is supposed to be there so will be looking for some more cavalry, I'll be the one in the rugby shirt that looks like a kid in a sweet shop !!

Sorry these arn't all fully based but you get the idea, the infantry are Dixons and the Dragoons are Essex, the bases are steel, tried the MDF route,these are much better availble from http://www.freewebs.com/pwsltd/steelbases.htm
If anyone can recommend some Spanish Cavalry flags I would appreciate it, as this unit of dragoons is currently flagless.
Sorry chaps, Steve pointed out that I forgot to name the units, the infantry are Terico Amarillos or "Old Yellows" and the Dragoons are Regiment Campredon. They will be joining the Catholic League forces, France, Savoy, Jacobite Ireland and Bavaria against the Protestant Powers of Great Britain, Holland, Saxony/Poland and Sweden.
