Some more 20mm Finns

Tonight I completed a couple of Finns from a batch I started 3 months ago, when I was still spending my weeks in Zurich for work. Finally got some done now... Hopefully I can get some more out this week. They're all Warmodelling (ex-Fantassin).

Some more 6mm GNW Swedes

As promised, some more pictures of my 6mm Baccus GNW Swedes. They're actually not based on snow bases, I just haven't got round to complete the bases yet (I like to do a large batch in one go to get a uniform look).

First a regiment of foot guards (every army needs at least a regiment of guards! ;-))

Detailed shot of one of the batallions

Then the Närke-Värmland tremanning regiment*

And again a detail of one of the batallions

* Tremanning regiments are regiments that are drafted from areas that already had a normal draft of soldiers. Normally 1 area would support and send one soldier to the normal, provincial, regiments of the army; for the tremanning regiments ("3rd man regiments") three areas would join together to send an additional soldier. This was an exceptional measure to cover the losses from the campaigns.

Current WIP

20mm Winter War Finns (Fantassin / Warmodelling)

Primed Grey (GW primer), then washed black. On hindsight, I should have skipped the black wash at this stage, the grey primer would have been more than sufficient as primer and undercoat for the light grey and white for the uniforms...

6mm Baccus GNW Swedes

Some 6mm Baccus Swedes I completed a while ago (1 batallion of the Södermanslands Regiment). I have a couple more battalions, which I'll try to post soon(ish).

In the meanwhile I've rebased these to 1 batallion per stand of 60*30mm.
