Right, I’ve been bragging about the Swedes I’ve been painting, but haven’t yet put up good pictures of them. Here’s the first three battalions of Karl XII’s army at Poltava. They’re three of the five (technically, six, but I’m representing the two battalions of the Västerbottens regiment by a single one as they were only the size of one combined by the time of the battle) that ended up with General Roos in the losing battle at the redoubts and Yakovetski woods:
Dalcarian (or Dal for short) regiment, first battalion.
Västerbottens regiment (two amalgamated battalions).
Närke-Värmlands regiment, 1st battalion (the second went on to the main infantry line).
The figures are from Musketeer Miniatures, the flags are hand painted (Dalcaria), Little Big Men (Närke-Värmlands), or scanned from the Höglund book (Västerbottens).
The figures for the next two battalions (Jönköpings and second battalion of the Dalcarian) have arrived last week, so they’ll be slotted in the painting queue soon.
Update: corrected Västerbottens spelling.
