Scanian War Danes - Warfare minis

Post by lewenhaupt » Sat Dec 14, 2013 7:02 am

Using some of the lovely figures from Warfare minis I have put together a small force of Danes (The Queen's Guard and Jyske Cavalry) to be fielded in our Scanian War skirmish game "Snapphanar".

The figures were a joy to paint. Nice and sleek sculpting without the chunky anatomics of earlier times.

These are wonderful! I think there is an as yet un tapped interest in the Scanian Wars. We already have a piece on Helsingborg (obviously later war) contributed for our blog and it will run in a few weeks. How would you feel about doing some pieces on the Scanian war for the blog? Would be happy to read about the war, uniforms, your project etc. Even if it is crossover material from your own blogs.

Please let me know via wordtwister@hotmail.co.uk

Really nice work - enjoyed looking 8)

I know if you are faced with something that nicely painted its almost a shame to have to fight them.

They will probably suffer the wargames curse of new units and run away on their first outing as did my Poles in my last game.

I only get that if I have painted both armies, which is sadly often the case

Success on first contact in the wargames table is traditionally inversely proportionate to the amount of time and effort that went into the unit in question :lol:
