Happy Bloggiversary to me!
To celebrate, here are some shots of my 17th-Century forces as they currently stand.

The pics aren't great, but they give a sense of the scale of what I've got so far. All this put together probably cost me less than one tournament-sized Warhammer army at modern prices. Historicals are cheaper, and most of these plastics were bought on sale on top of that.
I still have to make plenty of banners, paint another unit of cossack-style cavalry, assemble two units of pancerni, and of course get some terrain figured out. But I won't be purchasing any more for this project, except perhaps commanders, for quite a while.
