Later Medieval Swedish Army

At last some pictures of stage#1 of my 28mm Later Medieval Swedish army for my Kalmar Union War project.

In my mind a quite typical Medieval Swedish army, about 80% Allmoge Infantry and 5-10% each of Knights, Skyttar (mtd x-bow men) and other specialist like handgunners. It was common for the swedish knights to dismount and lead the Allmoge units from the front.

In Hail Caesar terms... 3 Commanders, 6 average units of Allmoge infantry, 1 small unit of Knights, 1 small units of Skyttar and 1 small unit of Handgunners. The front of each unit are 120mm so they will work fine for Impetus and Scottorum Malleus to. Might get me some movement trays...

The minis are from numerous of manufacturs, but most from Perry and Kingmaker.

Vanward command. Handgunners and Skyttar to scout ahead of the army.

Mainward of 4 units of Allmoge soldiers

Rearward made up of the army elit 2 units of Darlecarlian Allmoge:)
