Project Updates - Rivers & Russo-Polish War

Hi,

I hope to have some photos soon of my new Rivers I'm making. I'm using Brent Oman's (his blog link is on the right) excellent discussion on how to make rivers with commercial tile which is 1/8" thick. My results so far have been very nice. The ability to make any river width, length, and curve is just amazing. Wish I had done this 10 years ago!

Russo-Polish War of 1792-1794

Well, I was at Williamsburg Muster (Wargame Connvention) this past weekend and Falcon Figures UK had painted Polish troops for this period, so I bought them. :-)

This will give me another opponent for my Russians (Potemkin helmets) and Austrians as they both attacked the Poles to gain territory during this timeframe.

I'm not going to try to recreate any particular battle so that will allow me to collect the following without much worry.

8 Polish Line Infantry (done)
1 Polish Rifle
2 Polish Light Artillery (done)
1 Polish Heavy Artillery (done)
4 Polish Cavalry (have two)
3 Lithuanian Line Infantry
1 Lithuanian Rifles
1 Lithuanian Light Guns
6 Polish Insurrection Units (militia with various weapons)

Cossacks fought with and against these guys so that makes my other Cossacks useful too.

Should make for some VERY unique gaming! On Military Matters has a book about this with uniform guides, flag guides, etc. I have already ordered it.

I'll post some photos of the new Poles once I get them based and flocked.

Love the Russo-Polish war stuff! You have a knack for finding offbeat wars to game...

I will love to game with you but I havn't got my own army (I have some figure in 25 mm but without painting). But I know Poles, they fight bravely.
