    1. The Swedes had some great Finnish units in their ranks, both during the 30 Years War, but more notably during the Great Northern War were you see the Nyland horse regiment save the encircled Swedish Guards at Poltava by a self-sacrificial charge right into the numerically superior Russians. However, the wars against Russia were not only fought in Finland, but also the Baltics, Russia and even in Sweden were there was a battle right outside Stockholm at Stäket. But I tip my hat to the courage of the Finns, proven many times in history.

  14. Holy Toledo, they came out terrific. That base is quite snazzy as well, I could really use some of those.
