Polish Winged Hussars

The Polish Winged Hussars were a prominent cavalry force in the Polish-Lithuanian Army from the 16th to 18th Centuries.  At the very earliest stages, they served as light cavalry but by the middle of the 1500's they were transformed into heavy shock cavalry as we have presented them here.    As the primary tactic of the Polish Army of the period was the heavy cavalry charge, the Winged Hussars played an extremely important role on the battlefield.    Made famous the by the "wings" made from wood with feathers from various large birds, they appeared to be much larger and more imposing when issuing their charge.    One thing is certain, they were certainly among the beautiful of the horsemen of the period with ornate and colorful uniforms and large battle standards.    We have presented them here as they would have appeared from about 1587-1632 under the banners of Sigismund III, King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania and they bear his standards of that period.   We hope you will agree that these are amongst the finest figures we've ever created and represent something a bit more special than the standard "toy soldier" currently available and a real value in terms of their price point relative to the superb quality of the figures.  

Please note that while we have coded these figures as TYW simply because they required a code, they are appropriate for not only the Thirty Years War, but also the Renaissance as well, and as such we have placed them in both product categories as many of their enemies are figures that will eventually be placed in the Renaissance figure range.
