Tym razem, w przeciwieństwie do wcześniejszych figurek, przyciąłem włócznie do właściwej długości. Rażą już nieproporcjonalnie wielkie groty, w przyszłości, po pomalowaniu kolejnych dwóch przygotowanych do pracy podstawek, będą je obcinał.
Back to Ottomans. I have had some besli riders prepared for painting just before Ottoman artillery was given to me for painting. This unit is part of this group. Besli riders are one of the most versatile light horsemen units in the "By Fire and Sword" game, and they are compulsory for all divisional level army lists and most of the skirmish level lists. I painted some units of besli last year for official game forum painting competition. They were armed with spears, so I decided to paint some more, give them spears too and - additionally - light shields. It means that I will have to paint many bases of ordinary besli (with hand weapons only), as I won't be able to field this "elites" without fielding the same number of bases of ordinary besli.
I found that correct lenght of the spear for besli riders was much shorter then I did, so this time I shortened Northstar pikes a little bit. Unfortunately blade of the spear is way too big now but I will leave it as it is.
