Finished off a troop of cavalry for my KoW Wood Elves. Not sure that a troop of Silverbreeze cavalry is actually worth it in the game, but didn't feel like purchasing (GW so expensive!) and making 10 of these guys...five looks cool enough for me...they'll just probably get shot off the board turn one....

Finished up a pile of Cossack Moloitsy. They are pretty much the crappy Cossack infantry, but the army will never turn down some guys with guns, and a couple banners are required choices in BFAS anyway. Added to the 8 stands I have done, this gives me 24 stands of them.

Yeah, confusing enough? So these are the dismounted version of the unit "Mounted Cossacks". They basically function like dragoons that can also fight in close combat. I actually think they are the strongest unit option in the Cossack army.

Every HMGS show I return from I am even more disenchanted with. This Fall-In appears to have shrunk even more than other recent HMGS events, despite hearing some staff claiming attendance over 2000, I have no idea where they all were.
Nonetheless, the company I had was fun. We played Dead of Winter into the wee hours of the morning, got one BFAS game in with Frank, and hanging out with the BFAS crew is always fun. This trip's loot haul was pretty small - replaced my damaged BFAS rulebook with a fresh one, grabbed a few minor BFAS reinforcements, a couple Cold War microarmor things, and a dirt cheap box of Wood Elves in the swap meet.

Some 28mm Winged Hussars from Warlord Games. Abyssmal models and kit, in my opinion, further reinforcing my opinion that people are just content with setting with subpar when it comes to historical figures. Also they don't give you enough wings to give each hussar two...in addition many of the sculpts won't take two wings even if you cast them. They rationale it has being more historically accurate, but really, who buys winged hussars and doesn't want the iconic wings???
