Great Northern War

Hi guys,

I have started a repainting program of my old GNW-Figures - they where the first I tried years ago, and I think, I'm better in painting now. However... this is what the Russians are looking for, the swedish baggage train, guarded by second battalion of Dalregiment:

The center of both lines, the baggage train in the background:

The Swedes in more detail:

Swedish Lifeguard and part of the first Battalion of Dalregiment to the left:

And the Russians:

 Left russian flank - the Swedes started a counterattack with just one squadron against four. That did not work...

On the russian right flank the allied polish cavalry is prepairing its attack, Hussars and Pancerni in the first row, Cossacks behind (the generals are still in my old painting-style):

The swedes where successfull in holding the center, but the flanks where overwhelmed by the russian and polish cavalry, so in the end everythink was lost, including the baggage train.

Cheers, Ralf

Absolutely love Polish Winged Hussars.


Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.

Great stuff!

Even though I'm Swedish and thus a bit biased in this particular conflict, I especially dig your Polish troops - I have a 28mm Polish army myself and absolutely love the colorful and flamboyant look of those Hussars, Cossacks and Pancernis.

And of course, in 6mm you really get that massive feeling that is sadly lacking in the coarser scales...

Beautiful! The Great Northern War is on my 'to do' list. The double rank cavalry and triple rank infantry look outstanding.
