More "Heavies"(Russian Cavalry)

I love rainy days!-I can get on painting without distractions such as gardening,shopping etc.etc!!
Here are the latest two units of my Russian/Polish/Hungarians etc. to face my Mongols,and/or Teutonic Knights.


These are based on an Osprey illustration of Danish Knights fighting for the Teutonic Order against the Russians at the battle of Lake Peipus 1242-and in the background........................


More Polish winged- helmed knights(bonny buggers!)-we'll need sun glasses to play with this lot!!

Close-up of Danish knights-more crosses!!!

Close-up of the winged-helmed Poles-sort of crosses!
Only another 4 heavies and a couple of lights,and the whole project will be finished,then onto battle with the Mongols-can't wait!!
