Great Northern War Project 2016 Swedes

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Ebor are smaller, I have mixed my early units quite a lot, pictures on the blog give you an idea of the difference. I have one unit with mainly warfare and some Footsore pike and quite a few with warfare and some foundry and ebor mixed in. See what you think.

Vasterbotten have mainly Warfare musketeers with a couple of foundry and Ebor pike.

They look very good Mark and having been on the receiving end of Swedish attacks you won't need many more troops.

These look great, big fan of the deeper bases after experimenting with this for my great northern war forces.
