    military aggression they were a proud and skilled military race who were quite happy engaging in their own expansionist policies The army is a fascinating transitional mix of regular standing forces feudal levies and tribal allies The winged hussars are certainly one the most famous military units of the period The hussars far from being the light cavalry the name would imply in a later period were heavy lance armed cavalry fully or three quarter armoured who wore a light wooden frame decorated with eagle feathers on their back This produced a strange whistling sound as they rode adding a psychological element to their charge beyond the sight of their steel tipped lancers A Bit like C17th Stukas Other cavalry included wingless hussars feudal mailed cavalry or pancerni Tartar and Cossack allies as well as mercenary horse such as reiter The infantry were based around a regular core of musketeers who instead of the usual rest for the weapon also carried a huge berdische axe These were the main attraction of the Poles to me firepower and melee efficiency in one unit excellent Other infantry include levy musketeers and pike as well as mercenary units of various types All in

    to plan the range will have grown by almost 100 models during 2003 Received for review is a missile silo from the sci fi range This range is produced in modular floor sections some plain others with various equipment or emplacements This enables a number of combinations to be made from a relatively small number of modules allowing great flexibility for the gamer who can create defences refineries industrial centres space vehicle interiors made to measure for their scenarios The model itself is a 15cm square tile6mm thick and produced in a light grey resin with dark specks The floor sections bear patterning such as you find on metallic industrial floors While the silo itself is perfectly smooth with the missile head carrying a slight mould line Generally with these models a wash in detergent is advisable before attempting to paint this is because of certain anti adhesive coatings remaining on the surface of the model from its production and these prevent paint from adhering to the surface Once that is done a thin base coat will ensure that you will be able to paint the model to great effect as shown in the accompanying illustration The model figures shown

    I reckoned they would just push together like old fashioned Swoppets However the heads have a fairly long stem leading to the neck that need to be trimmed back and there is no hole where the head fits to the torso just a depression This means some fairly trick work with epoxy to fix them in place Personally I have more thumbs than fingers when it comes to tricky work

    campaigning has led to a weight loss for these warriors All models are depicted in mail and are well detailed although they do seem somewhat flatly cast The figures in the range can be provided with either round or kite shaped shields and the spearsmen can also be supplied with swords or axes on request The models are sold in packs of three that retail for 1 90 For more

    and the engraving deep and sharply cut The figures I am sure will paint up a real treat If I have one gripe it is that the sword blades are too short and the hilts are too plain for the period totally lacking the necessary knuckle guards The price for the pack of three figures is 2 25 From an earlier period comes the Robin Hood range The first pack contains Will Scarlet Little John and Friar Tuck Tuck is short and stout wielding his sword in a businesslike manner whilst wearing a plain iron skullcap Little John is well littler than I thought he would be and stands feet planted firmly holding a quarterstaff at the ready Will Scarlet is a bit of a dandy with a heavy cloak and plumed cap however his hand on hip sword held upright pose seems a little unnatural The baddies though in the shape of Guy of Gisbourne the Bishop of Peterborough and the Sheriff everyone hiss of Nottingham are excellent Mounted on large sturdy destries with cloth barding the Bishop wears his robes and broad brimmed hat of office whilst wielding a sword The Sheriff is an excellent model in mail

    they tended to suffer The Drummer GRE3 is a particularly nice model with very clear and finely defined detail The officer GRE1 is another very evocative figure but seems a little broad in the beam even allowing for the military fashion of the period The marching grenadier is an excellent figure GRE10 although the infantryman GRE7 seems about to break his nose on his own musket Finally there is an
