Hello!

I'd like to start new project called "Gdansk", army for By Fire and Sword game.
You can learn more about OIM here:

Gdansk was the biggest port in Baltic sea in that time and the richest city in Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. I was inspired to collect them after I read fantasy book about Adrendt Dickmann(Dutch born, Polish admiral and citizen of Gdansk). The book is called "Galeony Wojny" but It is the least important in this topic :D
Anyway, you would ask "why 1655-1660?". In 1655 the war between Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth and Sweden started. My "army" present skirmish forces of Gdansk.

Army list:
2 stands of Strzelcy wyborowi(sth like snipers)
6 stands of Reiters with arquebuses
4 stands of mercenary infantry
1 command stand

I have painted command stand and stand of Strzelcy wyborowi so far :D These miniatures are really tiny, about 15mm high.

Command groupe (without banner, I add it 2 days ago pictures are older)

It's better for me because I can clearly see how many bases I have to paint.
I also planned places of standing my little soldiers before painting so I need to stick to the plan :)
Thanks!

I finally finished first base of mercenaires.
From historical point of view those each guy should be diffrent (I mean uniforms), but as you can see I have painted them all red :D IMO It looks better but I will repaint their hats ( to be more historical correct than now :D )
I hope you like them =]
