Östgötatremännings regiment 1719

I have painted a bunch of minis for the Östgötatremännings regiment that also took part in the Battle of Stäket 1719. Most of them manned the oars on the galleys but at least 2 companies took part in the actual fightign with the Russians and was defending the unfinished fortification to the left of the Södermanlands regiment.

I shoose to depict them in Carpus to differate them from Södermanlands regiment. 97% of the minis are from Ebor miniatures and one of them are from Warfare miniatures.
