Hi guys I'm pleased to announce that I've finally finished the first army, it is the Saxon-Polish army for the Great Northern War.I'd like to start by thanking Dan Schorr for all the Saxon Army details including flags. I'm really glad I started with this army though they may well find themselves fighting Irish and French armies and not the Swedes, most of the Saxons are Dixon models with the odd Essex and Hallmark figure thrown in, while the Poles are all Essex except for the commander and his standard bearer, the're legio models. Only 2 more infantry units, a regiment of dragoons and some officers to paint and the Irish Jacobites will be finished. the case for the figures from the really useful box company, available from hobbycraft and Rymans, the self-adhesive magnetic sheets are from Principals of war and finally the steel bases I use are from Precision Wargames Supplies Ltd, expensive but I feel worth it for the thin profile, once again thanx for looking and remember all comments good or bad are always welcome.

Sorry for the lack of updates, lost my enthusiasm for painting, have got some done recently though, Life Guards complete as well as 2 infantry regiments, Lord Bellews and the Lord Grand Priors, only 2 units of dragoons and 3 regiments of foot and my Jacobite army will be finished, as a rule of thumb, my Jacobites & Saxons will each be 10ish regiments of foot and 6 regiments of horse. The Anglo-Dutch and the French will each be about 16 of foot and 10 of horse if all goes well. Also I attended Partizan mainly to see the Aughrim game and take some photies of the figures, I know some of you have been asking to see a few pics, and the organisers havn't been forth coming so there are a few here, sorry about the quality they were done with my phone.
