Has anyone managed to get this combination working?

There is a Putty extension but is appears to be non-free:

There is a free smartcard-enabled Putty:
But it requires a PKCS#11 module -- I see on that
it is possible to build for Windows, but are there any
pre-compiled binaries available?

There seems to be some efforts in the OpenSC project to facilitate this,
but there is also documentation that suggests smartcard with putty
doesn't work perfectly.
