Polish Lancers



A squad of Polish lancers in Saxon duty. Planned as skirmishing light cavalry, they should fight against the Prussian Jaegers, protecting the flanks of the own army and also marauding in Prussian trains and supply depots. Historically, they did not participate on the Seven Years War, because they had the luck be stationed in Poland. Graf Rudnicki was their commander.
The figures are of Manske Zinnfiguren and placed on round vignettes.

  1. Striking figures. On another day one can picture them chasing Cossacks or Turks through a Polish wheatfield.

  6. Superb.

    I like the Saxon Uhlans - have two pulks in 28mm - the red and the blue.

    1. Thank you, Chris - the colours now in summer are indeed more different and changing often outside - that helps for photography.
