GNW COMMAND AND SWEDISH GUARD

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!

GNW COMMAND AND SWEDISH GUARD

Post by RogerC » Fri Sep 23, 2016 4:39 pm

Varnished some figures I have been working on today. Had a bit of fun using a Warfare Command pack I bought in error to create a couple of Comman bases and finished the first of the Swedish Guard all for Great Northern War. More pictures and comments on the blog of course but a couple here.

I have just been reading about the battle of Gadebursh (9th December 1712) between Sweden and Denmark & Saxony and dangerous thinking I have the Swedes, a small Danish force so it would not take many Saxon units to be able to do it

The beauty of the Saxons is they fought alongside both the Danes, Russians and Poles and later the Prussians, they also fought in both the Austrian and Anglo/Dutch armies in the WSS so become multi use.

I must admit that is why I love this period of history so much, my collection covers engagements from the Monmouth Rebellion in 1685, through Ireland 1688/91, the WSS and the Great Northern War.
There is nothing better than multi use battalions

It's amazing you haven't already done it, given you probably got dozens and dozens of appropriate figures laying around!

Just received my Saxon heavy horse and finished paining a couple of units to send off to the basing department. Photos etc on the blog.

Already got the primer out!

Nice painted Saxons. That's a Polish Guard unit I presume?
„Macht Euch Euren Dregg alleene“

"Sort your filth out by yourself!" The King of Saxony Friedrich August III., at his abdication 1918, referred to the quarrels in the parliament and the squabbling within the provisional government.
