King Gustav I of Sweden 1523 - WIP



Just had to share these pictures I got from my matey Sören that runs the Eagle of Empire miniatures. Sören has decided that he wanted a 28mm mini that looks like the Swedish King Gustav I Eriksson from the House of Vasa as he enters Stockholm on Midsummerday 1523 as the winner of the Swedish War of Liberation, kicking out the Danes and sealing the end of the Kalmar Union.


eBob miniatures are making the sculpt and the picture he is basing the mini on are from a 1909 painting by the famous Swedish painter Carl Larsson, the painting are made in true nationalistic style.

I hope to be able to share more pictures as the project goes on.
