Re: Helion No 26 Swedish Army in GNW

I just finished a quick read. Overall a nice introduction to the subject. The descriptions of the selected battles are nicely done, although relatively brief. I noticed some errors in the battle descriptions, at least based on other sources I’ve read. The uniform plates are very nice, but I didn’t s...

Re: Helion No23 Russian Army in GNW

I agree, whole-heartedly. This book should be owned by anyone who is interested in wargaming the GNW. It it is not a narrative history of the war, but it contains all most people will need concerning, organization, recruitment, weapons, uniforms, flags, tactics, etc. Lots of info that I, at least, h...

Re: Swedish ratings in BLB v3

I would list the Life Regiment of Horse as Veteran Elite. The Drabants would be Guards. The Life Regiment of Dragoons would be Veteran Elite. The Foot Guards would be Veteran Elite, with the Grenadiers as Guards. But that’s just me.

Re: A few questions on BLB3

I am starting a Scanian War Project with Pendraken figures. I am using 30mm square bases for infantry and cavalry. Two ranks of four infantry, with the occasional additional officer and/or musician per base. Three figures per base for cavalry. The Pendraken figures are great. They look like “miniatu...

Re: How to represent Russian Horse Grenadiers

Let me throw something in here. Tacitus has a link to a Russian study of uniforms based on extant regimental records. I don’t have the link before me but I google translated it several years ago and here is what it says about the grenadier dragoon regiments: The study shows clothing and equipment th...

Re: How to represent Russian Horse Grenadiers

The chart in the Russian article seems to come from Angus Konstam’s Book originally published by Osprey. No sayinging it’s wrong, just wonder if Truls has found another source. Barry informs me that my dragoons will ship tomorrow. Yay!

Truls,

Where did you get your uniform colors for the grenadier companies that made up No. 40?

Re: 5 new Russian cavalry codes in the shop today

Friederich Augustus,

Where did you get your info on which regiments the grenadiers came from to form the permanent ones? I'm not questioning its accuracy, but I'm always look for GNW sources.

Thanks

Re: Why not take St. Petersburg?

It might be a good question to ask why he did not attempt to recapture this area, city or no city, since it was formerly ruled by Sweden? I haven’t looked this up, but my guess is that he felt that this would not defeat the Russians and they could continue to fight. If, however, he was able to defea...
