Wincenty Gosiewski Lithuanian hetman painted up

I painted up Wincenty Gosiewski yesterday, the Lithuanian hetman and commander of the highly elite Winged hussar skirmish list that you can field in By Fire & Sword. The list is not only elite because of the Winged hussars, a great chunk of the list is made up of Reiter's with skill 5, which is 1 more than Polish-Lithuanian Reiter's usually have.

The command model was very nice and painted up well, I used him with a regular bugler and banner man from the "Polish commanders" blister where I swapped out the generic commander for Gosiewski himself.
The flag is supposedly historical in pattern and colors, it's also hand made and hand painted. Sometimes it's nice to paint a historical banner that isn't complex or full of tiny details.

I look forward to give the Winged Hussar skirmish list a baptism of fire down at the club tomorrow, it will be great to play with a lot of newly painted models

This was also actually the last bit of By Fire & Sword stuff I had left to paint for the time being (eagerly waiting for the arrival of Polish infantry blisters from the KS). I'm saving a few of the Kickstarter characters  for my near future Cossack skirmish force project which will be using a lot of those (Konrad the boss, Cossack witch etc will be used on command bases).
