Begovian troops on the move ...

There has been little Begovian activity near the border of Wittenberg's Zinzendorf province, some scouts have been sent across the border to locate and report on enemy movements ...

A couple of scouts in enemy territory some 20 miles south-west from the key border burgh town of Darkur, about to move on see something in the distance...

they wait ... into view comes a large body of Begovian troops...
 the scouts note down what they have seen and follow them cautiously ....

[The first batch of re-furbished & re-based Begovian infantry completed, uniformed janissaries - the two original units are joined by a new one in red]

New Ottoman style infantry masters...

As I'm going to making a mould for a 40mm tatar as part of my 17C project, I would have some spare mould making stuff left over. I decided to rework my 40mm ottoman style infantry masters, adding three new poses and with smaller bases to save on metal
  • A new pose with the musket held more vertically
  • Original advancing figure gets a new head and musket
  • Another advancing pose with musket held across chest
  • Firing pose.
these should give me enough variety with a few conversions to rework the Begovian army infantry
The mould kits arrived today, masters will be double checked for snags before making the moulds.
