I painted something new- October version

 Well, it had to happen, finally another unit of Swedes, the second battalion of the Skaraborg Regiment from the Army of the North's Swedish Corps.   Resplendent in the grey cloth and blue facings as was their lot, The contingent is one unit closer to completeness (although some seven battalions are left to be completed.




The unit also adds to the page devoted to the 1813 Swedish Army collection, some work has been done in the last six months, if you have any curiosity on the progress.

Way in the background is the Austrian fast battery limber.

Only seven units to go Joe, you should have those turned out by the end of the month!

Keith, if only! The Swedes are a slow grind coming up. They will get finished. Jonathan, only because I have butterflied my way into a spate of projects that are now only three quarters finished. I have a few small units coming up. September was productive, but spread over campaign administration and some painting.

Lovely work Joe. An 1813 Swedish contingent is on my to do list for some time in the future, alongside the Prussians.
