Other Scanian War uniforms?

Are there any references to the uniforms worn by armies other than Sweden or Denmark? Particularily uniforms worn by the Norwegian army? Or brandenburg?

How Early for Warfare figures?

Would warfare figures be accurate for the Franco Dutch war? Or is that to early? To me they look good for the Scanian war which was fought at the same time, so they should also be good for the Franco Dutch war too? Or should I stick with the Northstar range for that fight?

Northstar 1672 model range?

Does anyone know if the Northstar 1672 range of figures is complete or are there still being additions to the line made? I know it used to be a different company, but I don't know if it is still being added to.

I was interested in the By Fire and Sword game, but 15mm is not my size of choice, I think i prefer 28mm for now. With that in mind I have become interested in the 1655-60 war and al...

Unit Sizes?

Hello, I am fairly new to the period but have played a few games of this game recently and something is confusing me right now, unit sizes. We played with cavalry of 2 stands and 3 horse each, so 6 total. But on a few of the battle reports I have seen online, cavalry seems to be 4 stands, 2 in front...
