House of Sture

Today we have some Allmoge commande by a real main character in the struggle for the Swedish crown in the 1460´s... Sten Gustavsson from the House of Sture or more known as Sten Sture (the Elder, nowerdays not back them...)

Sten Sture will develop to the Commander in Chief of the Swedish rebel forces and lead them in open battle with the Union/Danes in the Battle of Brunkeberg in 1471. The Victory at Brunkeberg made it possible for him to remain in place as regent for another 26 years.

Now I will paint some more units for the Union/Danish side, and then have me my first small game with them...The Battle of Helgeandsholmen in 21 August 1463... I hope that I have managed to paint all the minis I need for that battle until the 548 years anniversary... its a Sunday so it should be possible to get a game together at the club:)
