Showcase: 6mm Great Northern War Swedes Pt.2

Here comes the infantry! You gotta love lines of betricorned musketmen and pikemen.

In the late 17th century and early 18th century Swedish soldiers were regarded as some of the best across Europe. Sweden maintained an army quite a bit too large for an agraric country their size, but a unique system of recruitment and keeping a standing army allowed them to do that.

Their fighting style was very aggressive, specifically made to break formations of numerically superior foes.
