WSS /GNW Danes

With thoughts drifting towards fighting a GNW campaign against Mick, I knew I would need atleast 1 new army. I've plummed for the Danes, as like the Saxons their troops also served with the Empire and Maritime powers against the French. This makes them very versatile. Looking at the figures I had available I decided to make a start on some infantry. I have sent off orders to Dixon and Roundway for a few extras.

First up is 2 battalions of The Fynske regiment. These guys are a mix of Dixon, Warrior and Roundway figures. The flags are all from Maverick Models. I'm not sure I got the grey right for the coats but I'm happy as didn't want them looking too white.

Now know force is complete without atleast a few guard regiments. I've gone for the Livgarden til fods. I just love the straw coloured coats and I think they came out OK. The figures are all from Dixons.

I've now got 2 more battalions for the Sjaellandske regiment and a Brigadier awaiting basing. This will complete my first infantry brigade and I can now make a start on a regiment of dragoons.
