This is the first Polish Renaissance army that I bought, ready painted, in 1985 (or 86 when the figures actually arrived). I bought a ready-planned WRG force for the time of the siege of Vienna in 1683. Some of the sculpts are a bit crude by today's standards but I still love the dynamism of the poses, especially the Hussars with lances couched. Sadly, the ratio of Hussars to other troops is much too high for the 1660s, so ever since I started organising armies to fit historical orders of battle, most of my hussars have stayed in their box. Likewise, the Foot in blue jackets are fine for the 1680s but not earlier, so they, too, rarely turn out to fight. The Pike and Shot, on the other hand, are essential to a 1660s army and I've had to supplement my original White regiment with several others
The figures are based with a 40mm base frontage and organised the same way as units for Field of Glory Renaissance. I own the rules and army lists but have never actually played FOGR. I probably need to learn from experienced players because on the few occasions I set out to play FOGR, I gave up trying to grasp the rules and used another set instead.

I have played wargames for five decades and still love the hobby. Recently retired, I have even more time to devote to it. More about me here.
