Would the tricorne hat have been worn during the Scanian war or was that a later development? and is there anything to suggest that the Swedes wore their coats in the style that they did during the great northern war? with the sides fastened up?

Tricornes are to late for the period, every illustration I have seen has them in either traditional headgear or soft hats. Tiebacks were also a later evolution of the uniform. Please see preceding post for uniform drawings

The Warfare Grand Alliance line is fine for either side. If you are a real purist, you might do some head swaps with Swedes in karpus, still using the Grand Alliance bodies.
