The completed Swedish infantry for Poltava
General Lewenhaupt presenting my 32 battalions of Swedish infantry to the wounded King:
So I have completed the Swedish Army; it is time to paint the Russians...
However, since every project is born within a previous one, I also put into the painting line two further carolean regiments, namely the Uppland and Sodermalands Tremänning, which, to add variety to my army, I decided to represent in the gray vadmal uniform they had at the beginning of the war.
In this outfit they were for instance present at Klissow, 1702: this means that, sooner or later, I’ll do some Saxons and more interesting, some Polish cavalry.
