Gun yawl for the Finnish War 1808 WIP#3



A 3rd update from my scratch build of a Swedish Gun yawl for the Finnish War 1808.

I have continued to add crew and details to the ship. For the Gun crew and Officers I used even more Perry Plastics minis and this time the sprue "B 30 Austrian Napoleonic Infantry Command". The minis look Swedish enought for me.


I just needed new heads for them and for the rowers, to solve that issue I got me some of the Brigade Games "BG-NBR029 Napoleonic British Marine Heads and Command Figures" (possible to order just the heads), to get them Swedish I folded up the brim on the left side of the hat.


The Anchors and Oars are from the The Model Dockyard.

As you can see in the pictures I moved around the gun crew and officer a bit before i got them there I thought they looked best...Just painting left now...
