Swedish Allmoge rebased at last



What would be better than to share a bunch of pictures of my, at last, re-bases Swedish Allmoge soldiers on the National Day of Sweden June 6th :)

I´ve always been told that we celebrate our National Day on the June of 6th as the Swedish King Gustav I of Sweden was elected King on June 6th 1523 and thereby ending the Kalmar Union, not sure that is the truth, but it sounds good to me and it give´s me a reason to glorify the Swedish Allmoge that helped Gustav I to beat the Danes in a rebellion.

Short history lesson today,here are the pictures of the re-based Allmoge 15th centery style.

  5. Stunning! Your hard work is well-rewarded. Marvelous figures and basing. I'm waiting on yet another Likto order to re-base my French HYW army. Lots of mounted and foot knights & MAA. I plan to have standards/banners mounted separately so the troops themselves can be generic and used in different armies/scenarios. Best, Dean

    1. Thanks Dean !

      Good luck with your re-basing project:) I to have banners loese so I can swich nobles in command of the Allmoge, each banner man have a small tube that can hold the brasswire I use for my banners.

  21. Thank you very much mateys !

    It was quite some work but I think it absloutely was worth it in the end, sorry I didn´t go ahead an based them like this in the begining, it actually was one of the options back then to, but I suppouse I was to lazy painting the 4th mini and also listened a bit to much to other gamers, then to the historical sources. But now it is all fixed up:)

    Best regards Michael
