|Two regiments of 30 Warfare Miniatures Swedes for the Great Northern War
I received some reinforcements for my GNW Swedish army from Warfare Miniatures the other day, and now I have enough figures to create two 30-figure battalions as shown in these pictures.
Since many of the figures are charging with levelled or extended muskets/bayonets, I chose a deeper base to place them on so that the bayonets do not get broken or bent from use. This also provides enough extra space to create a perception of a third rank by offsetting some of the command figures, such as the drummers, officers, NCOs and standard bearers behind the first two ranks.
For now, I am basing the figures as follows: 2 stands of 6-figures, 2 stands of 5-figures and one command stand with 8-figures. The command stand will include 6 pikemen and 2 standard bearers.
So, what do you think so far?
