Scanian War Infantry Drummer with friends

While you await me to paint the Dragoons I have some snapshot pictures of additional Dalregementet infantry that I just painted and amongst them the drummer and in the last two pictures some of them charging.

All minis from the Wargames Factory plastic WSS kit.

I choose to paint the drummer in reverse colour. There are no info about how they should look, probably as the NCO´s in gray uniforms with red turnbacks, but I liked the red better for them, after all red are the colour of music:)



GÅ PÅ !!!

  1. Think your conversions turned out really nice. I like the scull cracking musket-clubber, and the drummer is a good color compliment - let's see if the Höglund book can cast more light over the uniforms!

    1. Thanks matey !

      The musket-clubber are a favourite:)

      The Höglund book have been consulted, I even had some mail corspondense with himself and hes educated guess was gray with red turnbacks but was not at all sure so he gave me permission to do my own educated guess;)

  2. Great work once again! I especially like the one ready to lung out with his musket.

  4. The red is definately a way better choice than Grey with red turnbacks.
