WSS /GNW Danes VIII
Yet more progress on my Danish force. This time 3 more battalions of infantry. Then I can make a start on the horse. First up is the 3rd battalion of the Droningin regiment. Like the previous 2 battalions these are all from Dixon Miniatures.
The next 2 battalions are from the Prince Christian regiment. The figures are from Roundway. I chose these as I quite like the wine red facing colours.
So far this brings the infantry strength up to 17 battalions. I do have 3 more glued to painting sticks ready for undercoat in. This will complete the infantry that I need. I then took the opportunity to organise then into 3 brigades for a couple of photos.
With all of my efforts on the Danes so far, my Swedish troops are looking rather shorthanded. I've ordered a couple of infantry battalions from Roudway and plan to make a start on the Swedes after I complete the Danish horse regiments
