First unit of Warfare Swedish Cavalry

I received Warfares new Swedish Cavalry late last week and have just had the first unit back from the basing department, I should point out that these are a mix of the old figures and the new ones and for this unit utilise the old style horses (I already had them painted) but I do like how they have...

Re: Its all about the Swedes

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...
