Fogde collecting the Tax

During my Church build I also managed to paint me a Danish "Fogde"/Vogt collecting the tax from the poor Swedish allmoge...

A evil fogde are a must in the swedish medieval setting as then the Allmoge has a authority to rebell against:)

The Fogde and the men carry the taxchest are from ReaperMiniatures, 02548: Merchant & Henchmen
The guard mini with the bill are from Foundry.

    1. Thanks you Jonathan. If they take no for an answer I don´t thing the Danish king would be wery nice...just see how what he did to the Swedish Archbishop Jöns Bengtsson Oxenstierna when he let the Allmoge pay less tax...
