Dalregiment in Russia 1708 #1



My mateyes Sören and Jesper have started up a Greate Northern War campaing at the Club, revolving around the Swedish invasion of Russia 1708 and using the Black Powder rules.

Each of the participating club member have painted their own battalion of a Swedish Regiment that they wanted to command during the campaign, I ofcours painted the Dalregiment...

The first outing was the Battle at Holowczyn 1708 and we was 11 players in cluding the 2 umpires that run the Russians. Here are some pictures from the game and with focus on the heroic 1st battalion of the Dalregiment :)

Repning´s Grenadiers defending the fortifications...

The 1st batalion of the Dalregement charges...

Clering the Russian filedwork...

...was to a cost, but Karl XII came and rallied them...

...so they could continue their heroic battle...

...at least for a while...

I´m not sure how it all ended as I had to retire with the remaining part of the 1st batallion of Dalregimentet...
