Time for another update on my ongoing project. Next week I´ll have to be ready to field at least the most basic skirmish force for our wargaming day. To work towards that goal, I´ve greated my Commander and russified the Musician and Bannerman from the Totentanz Mounted Cossacks Command set.
Together, thes should make a nice command stand to represent my Golova, the commander of my Muscotive Skirmish Force.
With all the work done so far, I´ll have to finish the Command Stand and the last two Boyar Son cavalrymen to get a basic playable skirmish force on the table. I´ll probably have to lend a unit of cavalry to represent a skirmish sotnia if need be - but we´ll see.
Then I can focus my attention on adding the Reiters and paint mounted Cossacks to represent my Servant Cossacks when mounted and moving on horseback.
So far, my Scratch-Build Boyar Sons unit looks like this:
Two more to paint.
