The Pikeman's Lament final Cover



Seems like Osprey released the Final cover for The Pikeman´s Lament, at least its up on Amazon.

I really like the cover by Mark Stacey, a Greate artist, and I glad that he made it Swedish as I requested as well as listen to my feedback fron the initial scetch.

As you can see I got a change the banner, the one on the scetch are absolutely a historical swedish one, but I wanted a Swedish Lion Rampant as that to are a known Swedish TYW flag as well as Sweden have Lion Rampant in its official CoA that you can see even on the back of the well known Vasa Ship from 1628 AND ofcourse to show the connection to the origin of the rules, the Lion Rampant rules by Dan:)

Also got the central pikeman to get a Gustavus Adolfous heroic look and not a bandage as you know Swedes never get wounded;)

Rules are due to release by the end of January 2017

Nyland Dragoons 1808



For my Finnish War project I have made a dive in to the half finished unit box and found the Nyland Dragoons i started a couple of years ago, was indeed time to get the finished;)

They was made from all kind of perry plastics and as they can dismount during the game I made a group of 8+Officer Mounted and 6+Officer and Horse Holders Dismounted.

Russian Grenadiers 1808



I have added 2 groups of Russian grenadieres to my Finnish War 1808 collection. The march attack pose minis are plastics from warlord games. All other minis, Officers, NCO´s, Drummer and Musketeers in the pictures are metal from Brigade games. 

The last 4 pictures are a group of Musketeers to be added to the 3 i already have. Now I will paint me a further 2 groups of Grenadiers.

Draugrdrottin a.k.a. Odin



At last some pictures of the painted Draugrdrottin a.k.a. Odin. I also added some pictures of him with his hoard of Draugar.

You can read a bit more about the Draugdrottin in my article in WSS issue-85.

Draugrdrottin - WIP



As I needed a real leader for my hoard of Draugar and Ravens I decided to build me the one and only Draugrdrottin.

Draugrdrottin is one of many epithelium for a quite famous man in the Norse mythology...I really hope you see who...or I will cry ;)

The mini I used as a base are from Elladan Miniatures. Wolfs and Ravens are from the Nortstar Frostgrave range, and ofcourse a bunch of plasticks for the base. The Extra legs for the Horse as well as the plastic wolfskin cloak are old GW bits.
