Painting Scanian War Infantry

As I´m from the region Dalarna/Darlecarlia in Sweden I of course will paint my Scanian War infantry as the Dalregementet/Darlecarlian Regiment. Also Sören was kind enought to get me a greate looking flag from Warfare Miniatures.

This is how I will paint the uniform for the Dalregimentet, even as this pictury probably are of a GNW soldier from Älvsbors regiment (no bayonetts for the swedes during the Scanian war.)

Here are a alternative Karpus, as mine are made of cut down grenadier caps 
I think mine will be more like this one...


The first 19 minis to be painted, this will give me a force of about 170 points, that will be about the same that Sörens first batch of Snapphanare, you can see a greate pictures hof them at his blog.

  6. The colour-choice for your Dalregiment is spot on. Blue and Red always make for a great contrast.

  7. Thanks for your support my friends !

    By the time for the Scanian war each regiment had its own coloure of the uniform the Dalregimente had blue coats with red cuffs, after the Scanian war the cuffs was changed to yellow.

    Best regards Michael
