House of Dyre

During tha autum 2011 i started to paint 24 knights for my Kalmar Union War project, 12 have been finished and now I have compleated 6 more of them:)

This small unit are under command of the Danish noble man Peder Nielsen Skeele from the House of Dyre.

Coat of Arms for the House of Dyre

The minis are a mix but mostly Perry.

Sorry to say, but the flag and shield wasn´t one of my best...might have to re do them so the horns get better...

  4. Thank you all :)

    Might be time for a groupe shot of my Kalmar Union War minis...I have a unit och two in there last stage so I might waith for them to...

    Actually this unit isn´t Swedish...or at least the Commander arn´t as he at the moment would represent a danish noble men, BUT a bout half of the Swedish knights would support the Danish Kings cause...

    In Sweden the Kalmas Union War as I have chosen to call it was in most a Civil war there some strong High Nobility familys struggled for power and the crown of sweden.

    Some seeking support from the allmoge/people and some seeking support from the Danish King...whom according to the Kalmas Union treaty was the King and Ruler of Sweden to...

    So you see a perfect era to use for a wargaming project. All minis can more or less be used on both sides:) Perfect !
