Showcase: 6mm Great Northern War Saxons

 Up to now the collection of 6mm Great Northern War figures I painted lacked one of the big players in the war - the Saxons.

Showcase: 6mm Great Northern War Swedes and Baggage

Now for the Swedes, for whom of course I already painted quite a sizeable force. This time it's the man himself, Charles XII., more cavalry in the characteristic wedge formation, and more infantry, wearing the also characteristic Karpus hats.

Showcase: 6mm Great Northern War Russians

Right, on to the troops. First, some reinforcements for the Russians, in the shape of Grenadiers and Streltsy.

The Russian army of Peter the Great had Grenadiers form their own separate Battalions. And if you have some time, read up about the Streltsy. Fascinating stuff. Each time I glance over Russian history a little I realize how much I don't know. It's embarassing really. There's so much interesting stuff to know.

Anyway, hope you like the minis. Stay tuned for more over the next days!
