2mm Infantry for the Scanian War.

Hi everyone!

I painted up the first 2mm infantry for my Scanian War project.  This base represents one battalion of the Darlarna Regiment from 1676. I am working on the Swedish troops for the battle of Halmstad at this time.  It was interesting to paint these tiny miniatures.  I am waiting to get some sand to add to the base and then paint the bases green and only add a little flocking to the base.

Here are the miniatures before I started to paint them up.

Size comparison between 6mm miniatures (painted) and the 2mm miniatures.

The finished Battalion with regimental guns.


The blue on the base is to determine the troop nationality.



Here is another comparison.

Let me know what you think.

Have a good weekend!

    1. Thank you! I agree they look like a good formation of pike and shot from the time!

  5. I'm assuming the tall figures are pike formations?

    I like the idea of the scale for ease of prepping an army and fitting a battle on the table. We'd had discussions in my local group about doing a "grain of rice" Zulu army for Roarke's Drift, but this looks a lot more manageable.
