Polish commanders

Below are three of my newly-completed commanders for my 17th C Poles. All the figures are by TAG. I have no idea where I'm going with this army. Very haphazard approach, just adding what I like rather than sticking to any plan or historical orbit. Currently being painted are 32 Krackow militiaman, dressed in very natty western style dress. I guess I could do with more Pancerni and Cossacks, regular and irregular. My 'plan' was/is that the army can fight my Swedes immediately prior to Sweden's entrance to the TYW. 


  1. Please take heart! Polish armies were effective but often looked rather different from each other. Many forces were raised locally by the nobles and forces in the north would look quite different from those raised to fight the Cossacks and Turks in the south. As long as you have enough cavalry, you'll be OK. Winged hussars were the finest cavalry in all Europe and Asia - be nice to yourself and make sure you have enough.

  2. Thanks Jerry. So far I have 5 units of winged hussars, 4 of Pancerni, 5 of Cossacks with plenty of thirty years war Germans I can use as mercenary reiters and infantry/artillery
