Kalmar Regt.

The only Swedish regiment I will be modelling for the GNW, and only because one of my partner's ancestors commanded the regiment in the early - mid 1600's!

Wonderful figures and a joy to paint. They really capture a sense of movement!

That's some fantastic painting.
But only one swedish regiment?

I know the swedes are very effective during the war. But I think a single battalion might be a little light to defend the swedish realms from Danmark-Norway, Saxony, Russia and Prussia.

But if you just build a russian army, it's going to be a very boring game/campaing?

35 Russian battlions, 50 russian squadrons, 30 cannon vs 1 battalion of Kalamar. It's gonig to be a short game :lol:
