Union infantry troops

Here are 2 pictures of the newly painted German Mercenary mixed in with therie units of Danish/Union infantry.

The Danes made extensive use of Mercenary, mostly from Germany, under their own command or in some cases a german noblemen. these units are under command of Swedish/Danish border nobility.

The border nobility aim at Noble Houses that had estates in both Denmark and Sweden. They often sided for the Union due to better trade possibilitys and to secure their estates in both contrys.

I have chosen to have attacking minis in the front and marching in the back.

These will be used as Heavy Infantry and will in most cases beat the shit out of the Swedish Allmoge in OPEN terrain...

  7. I wish you a very good time in London/SALUTE. The show is incredible the first time you go there, and there is going to be a lot friends there.

    These two units are of a great quality, and I´m taking a growing interest in this period. Can you recomend me (besides your blog) some reading?

    Best regards.

  8. Great addition to your Union forces! They really look professional and "heavy".
    And the Wallace Collection is nothing short of exceptional. A must see.
