A brief description of the Lithuanians with photos can be found at the blog.

There are no plans to double the size, but and order was place with Legio Heroica to add some light horse and dismounted archers. This should prove a useful ally.

A nice looking force.

Thanks 79thPA.

Lorenzo,
Heavies are FEU07, MUS03 and TUR03, the latter need pistol holders filed down.
Lights are MUS15 with fur caps add (Milliput).
Foot archers are FEU13. Fur caps will be added when the next order arrives.

Eastern shields are needed to complete the appearance; Essex (MS14).
I also converted four heater shields to the winged model which is typical for Eastern light horse.

Nice.

When you say the flags are interchangeable, do you mean they can be pulled out (are they socketed in some way?)?

Phil,
The flags are folded around a brass rod (1mm), scored with the thumbnail, then carefully slipped off to dry. Later, held in place with a brass rod, the flags are curled and ready for use.

About half the foot troops and nearly all mounted have flag poles fixed to their base. A spot of glue, painted over and varnished, will keep the flag from slipping.

Aside from the flags already seen I have a dozen bags filled with flags for other armies and personalities.
I should have test results for Gavere by Tuesday, so you can see the flags and banners of Ghent.

Really nice job and great work on the conversions!

I've been slowly working on a Lithuanian-Polish force for Grunwald which is slightly later than what you have here I believe. The Lithuanian light cavalry for that period are knights in full chain hauberks with javelins/light spears as opposed to horse archers. Mind you the Tarters did ally themselves with the Russo-Polish-Lithunanian force for the battle of Grunwald so you can have all kinds of fun troop types. This plastic "medium cavalry" set is actually quite good representation of Lithuanian light cavalry in terms of historical accuracy, just not so much in terms of sculpting and casting: link
