A Swedish Workbench

With all the posts about Russian Civil War and Carlist games and most of the figures coming off the table being Saxon, Polish or Russian you could be forgiven for thinking I had forgotten the Swedes, fluttering off butterfly-like to other pretty flowers.


But no in the background the Swedes have been slowing massing. As I have finished painting one unit and started two more I thought a quick update was in order.


Firstly I have painted the second battalion of the Swedish Liv Guard. I intend a Brigade of these chaps and they do look the part. Full post when based but.....


 Ebor Pike


 Ebor Musketeers
 Foundry musketeers
 Ebor Command
 Ebor casualty
 The regiment ready to be based

We then have the first figures painted for the guard grenadier battalion. Only battalion of combined grenadiers I am aware of the Swedes using. This is half of the Ebor "Storming Party Command Pack" ready but on the website yet. Another officer and two ensigns to go. Along with the casualty figure this will make the Grenadeirs a very lively looking unit.
 Then the first Swedes in grey, this will be one of two Tremanning units both will be in grey and marching so they will look a little different to the rest. 2nd from the left is foundry rest are Ebor. I will discuss what a Tremanning unit is when I have them finished,


And finally just to prove I am still a butterfly, a Saxon gun. Crew to follow in next week or two!


So there you are, hopefully have some finish units back from the basing department in a couple of weeks to share, in the mean time thank you for reading!.
