Three Different Pico-Scale Versions of the First Polish Lancers


Here are three different versions of the same regiment: the famous First Polish Lancers, all in pico-scales!





First up are two squadrons of the lancers based for Black Powder. Figures are from Oddizal Osmy's 1/600 Napoleonics line:


Then we have the entire regiment based for Sam Mustafa's new Bl├╝cher. These are 1/900 scale figures from Irregular Miniature's http://www.irregularminiatures.co.uk/indexes/2mmindex.htm2mm Horse & Musket range:



Last, we have a squadron of First Polish Lancer GEVs painted up for my 3mm Ogre Miniatures set-up. These are heavily modified Oddizial Osmy Centaurus hovercraft.

Building Howitzers for 3mm Ogre






Here are some pictures of how I am using the extra gun barrels from O8´s M92 SPG to build howitzers for my 3mm Ogre set-up.

Here are the supplies and components:



A bit of pasteboard for the base. A thumbtack (pointy bit cut off and reused as a bunker antenna), eight slices of a dead credit card, a couple of plastic bits (which are glued together and filed into the right shape), some plastic tubing (for the bunker) and, of course, the extra gun barrel from the M-92.

This shows you the four howitzers in various stages of construction.



Here they are, all built.



Primed....



And painted.
