Re: Scandanavia 1655-1680?

Just had a look and I have some information on uniforms for 1675, this is from what was a Swedish Children's book from 1976 called

Re: Some Baroque scenery ( Forgeworld earthworks )

Superb piece of terrain and very well painted, and your figures are superb.

I have a Forge world siege line, they are great pieces of scenery and it's a pity they have stopped selling them
