Pancerni conversions


Originally the Zvezda Russian Noble Cavalry, these were given shields and misiurka helmets to make Polish pancerni cossacks.


Red is the main colour with gunmetal and silver on the armature and the standard white primer- VMA Burnt Umber treatment on the horses.


I have started to use wider bases with the Revell cavalry and these follow that tradition.




The figure on the right was a trumpeter that is converted to a Polish noble or tax collector with a parchment in his hands.

In other news, the blog has reached 100 followers - 99 if I count myself. Thanks for everyone - maybe I'll hold a giveaway soon.

  5. Great as always. Will you be doing unarmored cossack-style cavalry?

    1. Thank you, I've been thinking about using the Marsh lisovchiks but they look kind of bad, so it's going to be Zvezda/Orion cavalry for the loyalist cossacks too. I've made some Orion foot and cavalry figures before, I think you can find them with the label cloud or the search tool on the right sidebar.
