DBA Croatians - book III/26

Despite the long period between postings, my paint brushes have not been idle, as I have completed a large scale DBA-HX French army for the Seven Year War conflict. That project is sufficiently completed that I can now direct my energy on three DBA armies, the first of which are the Croatians, book III/26.

There are a number of art works depicting Croatian military and I would invite the reader to check some of these at: Kingdom of Croatia

One passage of interest mentions a Croatian navy, raised to defend the kingdom against Saracen raids.

About the figures, these are all 15mm Essex with the majority of figures having a rather generic look.

Tunic, breeches tucked into boots and leather covered shields armed with short spears or javelins, the majority of which will be based as 3Ax.

Cavalry will form 3 elements and the lights will complete the required number for DBA play.

This photo shows the completed collection ready for varnishing and later basing.

Next posting, the Bohemians - book III/16
