Of the dozen scenarios, five could escalate to a full open battle.
Narrowly avoided by the Polish on a few occasions, nonetheless,
the Swedes cornered their foe and a battle ensued.

Follow the link to read an overview of the campaign with an assessment.

Sieges will follow soon.

Very nice. I've been interested in this period for quite some time and have painted up some Poles and Cossacks with Swedes waiting in the queue. I'm currently waiting to see how By Fire & Sword 2 rolls out before I decide whether to go back to it.

The campaign will continue with Sweden facing a new enemies.
Next, the Holy Roman Empire.

Siege scenarios are also being developed.

Another interesting period that I will probably never buy figures for. Speaking of figures, they are very nice looking. Who are they made by?

These are Legio Heroica.

As they are no longer in production,
I have used Blue Moon for the civilians.

Comp being real glitchy, with a "b", so I'll get right to the point. Winged hussars, one wing vs two wing, are they contemporary, i.e. can I use them together? I know about the Towarzysz and the Pocztowy followers, did they all charge in together or in separate units. Judging from the Khurasan figures I have seen, the Pocztowy appear to be not as heavily armored as the Towarzysz which I assume are the gentry.
BTW, would like to know what rules you are using and your assessment of them. I will probably be using DBR ver.2.0., as they are the only rules I have. I currently reside in the wargames desert of North Central Florida, so my access to other gamers and experiences is somewhat limited. I only had experience with the old Tercio rule set, I think they were Wargames Workshop or some such, now regrettably, out-of-print. Nice simple rules but I think they were a good representative of the period. The rules also had a long list of army lists at the end which were useful.
