54mm Polish Winged Hussar

Thanks to a free download from Wargames Designs of a very nice lance pennant, the Winged Hussar is completed.
The lance is a brass rod with a plastic bead for the hand guard. The lance head was fashioned from plastic sprue.

Polish Hussar lances (kopia) were very long - about 4.5 to 5.5 meters which tended to outdistance their enemies lances. This site contains some interesting information on the weapon.
Here are some close ups of the figure.
Painting him was sort of cathartic - I don't feel I "have" to get a box of those Warlord Games Winged Hussars - at least for the time being.
