GNW Swedes III

In a slight break from painting Danish troops (all that grey) it was nice to make a return to my Swedish troops. Firstly I decided to re base the infantry, combining the Command and Pike bases into a single deeper base like my Russian troops. It makes moving the troops that little bit easier. One benefit of this is that it left me with a number of spare painted pike men, this wouldn't do and some extra figures would be required.

I decided to try out Warrior miniatures as they do a selection of infantry with turnbacks. For 15mm scale they look fine to me and 2 battalions of the Ostgotta regiment were completed.

I've now got 2 more regiments on the painting table including the Grenadier battalion.

I do like the idea of the deeper bases for the pike Scotty. Very nice.
