More GNW Swedes

It feels like it has been ages since I have posted anything, just do not seem to have the time, though I am still checking out every ones blogs, but not always leaving comments. Hope to start rectifying that. On a gaming front nothing much has happened. After the large FPW game at Mick's I had my first game of hail Caesar at Neal's against Dave. The conclusion had to be postponed due to work commitments. I'll post an update when we get the game finished.

On to the Swedes. I have slowly been expanding my forces. First up is the Dragoon regiment von Schippenbach, these are at a strength of six squadrons. They will be my largest mounted unit for the Swedes. The figures are all from the Dixon range. I still need to source a flag for these.

Next up is a small battery of three medium guns. These are from Warrior miniatures as are most of the crew with a couple of additions from Minifigs. From my sources the Swedish guns were painted peasant blue with all the metal painted yellow. I've interpreted the blue to be light, though may be wrong.

Lastly there is the addition of another infantry regiment, this time Riga. Again the figures are all Dixon and the flag from Solway.

Next up on the painting table are a couple more infantry battalions, some dragoons and a couple of bases of Polish cavalry.
