I thought I might at the same time discuss my amended plans for the Great Northern War project. You will, I am sure have guessed this does not mean its getting smaller!
For the Saxons 10-12 foot and 3 horse will be about enough as mentioned above.
The Cossacks are finished, unless I add a light gun for them. 4 units of horse and 2 of foot that can essentially fight for either side (as can the Poles)
For the Russians 2 units each of horse and foot, this means I just need to paint another unit of foot to complete them. Having recently picked up some guns from ebay I will also add a gun to the Russians.
My initial plan for the Swedes was 12 battalions of foot and 10 of horse with 3 guns.
The initial guns and foot required are finished along with 6 of the 10 horse. I am waiting on the release of Warfares Swedish horse to finish off the original plan.
I also have a few figures left over, enough to do at least one and a half more battalions. I have then picked up some Foundry figures from Ebay, this gives me enough for a further 2 battalions.If I pick up soem more command packs and some foot to add variety that will take me to 16 battalions which can be split into 4 brigades of 4.
I will then need to add a further gun (I have one just need the crew) plus a further four units of horse on top of the four I am already missing.
This will take me to 16 foot, 14 horse and 4 guns.
So still a long way to go.
In fact 11 units of horse, 11 units of foot and 4 guns to go. Plus a few Generals too.
Better get cracked on then!
