Re: Swedish King Charles XI - command stand

Thank you all so kindly for your comments, very encouraging for the further work on the Scanian War Project! It was great fun portraying Charles XI, popularly known as "old gray cape" for his toned down clothing. A practical man with a love of organization of state and military, not unlike that of t...

Re: Danish Artillery - Lund 1676

Thank you very much for the kind comments. Regarding the Iron/Bronze question. Möinichen's paintings of the war depicts both types of barrels in field use. The records suggests that ship artillery and the lighter field pieces would most likely be iron, while the heavier positional artillery and sieg...

This one illustrates a mitre in Russian keep, taken during the GNW. So it gives evidence to the usage of soft miters, as opposed to the hard brass front plat...

Danish Artillery - Lund 1676

http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac356/ecopeople/Side1.jpg Before indulging myself in the painting marathon of the infantry, I thought it was time for some guns. The Danish artillery outnumbered the Swedish 4-to-1 at Lund, but this didn't discourage the Swedes. Their infantry charged the Danes in...

Re: Swedish Grenadier???

Here is an illustration from the very cool and useful "Karoliner" book.
The records show very little info on the grenadiers of both Charles XII and his father. But, I think this is probably a better guess than what Cederström made.

http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac356/ecopeople/front.jpg It was time for the second squadron of the Danish Horse Guard to get painted up. This time in Collets, as they were depicted by period war painter, Claus Møinichen. Again, I'd say it was a very enjoyable labour of love painting the crisp ...

Re: The Danish Horse Guard - Lund 1676

Thanks for the kind words everyone - appreciate it. These were really great fun to do, with the added sculpting - first time I worked with Green Stuff, much easier than I had feared.

Barry: I'd be very happy to contribute! I'll email you a suggestion for the blog roll.

With all the fantastic cavalry figures recently launched, was wondering if there are any plans to sculpt kettledrummers in the future?

Scanian War Danes - Warfare minis

Using some of the lovely figures from Warfare minis I have put together a small force of Danes (The Queen's Guard and Jyske Cavalry) to be fielded in our Scanian War skirmish game "Snapphanar". The figures were a joy to paint. Nice and sleek sculpting without the chunky anatomics of earlier times. h...
