Two Years of the Spoony Bardiche

Happy Bloggiversary to me!

To celebrate, here are some shots of my 17th-Century forces as they currently stand.

The Cossacks:

The Tatars:

Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (German-style troops):

Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (Eastern-style troops):

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.


  1. Very impressive collection - brilliant conversions and paintjob!

    1. Thanks! Your work has been an inspiration.

  2. Congratulations on two years. Your creativity has always inspired me to look for new ways to put things together.
