Perry Plastic Foot Knights 1450-1500...


As you sure know the Perry plastic Foot Knights 1450-1500 are out, I haven´t bought any of them as I really didn´t know how to get use of 38 fullplate Knight on foot up in Scandinavia during the 15th centery...



But in the end I got a few sprues of them from my friends at Northern Wargaming that also pointed out that the Perrys had included some Kalmar Union Flags and Livres on the information Sheet, glad that the Perrys help us to spread the Kalmar Union word. We now officialy are a part of History;)


After some further look on the information sheet in the box we noticed that the Perrys had refered to my blog for more info about the Scandinavian conflicts in the 15th century !!! 

I´m most honoured and it was quite a surprise to me, but a most wellcome one. The Perrys evidently visit my blog from time to time, big recognition to my work and made me very happy:)

  1. Truly an honor, and a well deserved one for sure. Your blog has done a tremendous job of spreading the word about Scandinavian conflicts in general, and the one(s) in the 15th century in particular and the hobby has been much enriched by your tireless work.

  6. That is great that Perry views your blog to get data on Scandinavia. I bet the nights will look great. I will try to make it to the next game you put on.

  8. Well you can quit the hobby as your life as a wargamer now has peaked. :-) Osprey was good, this is even better in my view.
    On a more serious note you really do promote Swedish history in a great way through your blog. And if the Perrys send some readers your way, all the better!

  9. Great stories, and especially yours models.
    As the above says many people have strange these Scandinavians (Swedish and Danish) stories, their history, which for many is a great surprise, including their impact on the european time and the "proportions"
