The Swedes in 1813 contributed to the Army of the North. Thee were six brigades of infantry, as well as supporting Cavalry and Artillery. One brigade, the 5th, was with Walmoden's Corps...detached for duty in northern Germany. The other five brigades served in two divisions with the main army and appeared at Leipzig.
We will start with the brigades in the main army. Remember, I am storing one brigade per box, I may forget and use either term talking about the figures. I apologize for my idiosyncratic organization.
Well, the first box of the Swedish is a mix of Guard, Grenadiers, and line battalions. Quite the gamer's dream mix. I will start with the Svea Life Guard.
I added two gun sections to the box as the division had two batteries ( four sections in my basing scheme.) In keeping with the theme of mixed units, some are mini-fig from the 1980's, some are Eagle Figures and some are from the house of Perry.
When I get everyone done, I will flock the units bases for consistency. I will move the information to a new page on the blog so good folk like yourselves can find all the Swedish stuff in one place...watch this space!
