Perrys making Napoleonic Swedes :)



Seems like my nagging of Alan Perry to make some Napoleonic Swedes finaly payed of, during the spring he contacted me and asked for references so I sent him a bunch of pictures as well got him in contact with the true expert in the matter of Swedish Napoleonic uniforms from the Swedish Army museum, Martin.

So here are the first two packs of Swedish Napoleonic Infantry for the Finnish War of 1808-09, one pack of Marching infantry and one pack of Skirmishing/fireline infantry all in the 1806 uniform.


Below are 4 WIP pictures Alan sent me and Martin erlier to give feedback on, for me they looked fine, but Martin as the expert he is on the subject noticed some things that needed adjustments.

  4. Best news I've heard in a long while. You've done me a great service with your nagging, sir! I have my 6mm Finnish war project but it doesn't quite allow me to lovingly brush my "favourite war" like 28mm will :)

  10. :D Guess what, I actually came here to look at your blog today for how to convert some Perry minis I were planning to buy into Finnish war Swedes. This saves me that trouble...

    1. There isnt much in english, but I can recommend this book:

      Between the Imperial Eagles:Swedens Armed Forces during the Revolutionary and The Napoleonic Wars 1780 - 1820

      You can get it secondhand hand from Sweden.

  12. Great to see them develop and interesting to see the process of figure design sculpting. Not going to be for me but look forward to seeing your army 😀
