Re: Its all about the Swedes

Progress on the Swedish cavalry, hope to have first unit based over the weekend as the basing department comes home for a couple of days.

Re: Its all about the Swedes

Hi Truls, only for the Lifeguard as I already painted them, the other 4 units will be on the new style horse which I like a lot. Started the Livonian Adelsfana on the new style horse.

The Grenadiers getting the bon...

New plan for Great Northern War

So this weekend being unable to paint again I decided to organise myself.

BLB3 Playtest with Great Northern War

We play tested Beneath the Lilly Banners 3 on Thursday using my Great Northern War collection. Generally really good results, enjoyed the mechanisms just concerned over the movement rates, full write up on the blog with pictures. https://gapagnw.blogspot.com/ https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1749/4068...
