Bjorneborgs Regiment: Pikemen

I finished two pikemen, a musketman and another grenadier for the Bjorneborgs Regiment today. I had painted the first four figures in a generic way, with yellow flaps on their karpus', as I never actually intended to build a unit, but Bjorneborgs had blue hats so I repainted the first four I did. I have nine out of 36 figures done. I have just based another five figures; three for Bjorneborgs and two for Kalmar so will try and get them done in the next few weeks.

Kalmar Regiment: Drummer

The 1644 rules call for one musician per regiment so here is my first drummer. I based the drum on one I photographed in the Army Museum in Stockholm last Autumn.

I have now painted nine out of the 36 figures I will need for this regiment. I still need to buy a few more for it but I am starting to get there, I think. Should finish off a few for the other regiment I'm working on tomorrow, before I go and see my sister's new house (which is five minutes walk from a Games Workshop, worryingly).
