The Russians keep on coming....

 Hi all,

I have been surprisingly productive this past week and I have been able to finish another unit of Russian 28mm Perry miniatures. This time they are Jagars. We need a lot of Jagars for the 1808-1809 battles. I have two scenario books that cover both years and each battle has many units of Jagars.

Well I wont waste much space with words. Here are the pictures of the unit, now I will switch gears and start painting up some Swedish/Finish infantry.

Have a good week.

28mm Russian Grenadiers for 1808-1809 Russo-Sweedish War

 Hi everyone!


Today is Swedish National Day. It is a new holiday here in Sweden so it is nothing like the 4th of July in the USA. But it is good to see it is a day to celebrate the creation of the Swedish Nation. 


I have been working on some more 28mm Perry miniatures, these are plastic and I am very happy how they came out. These 8 Grenadiers is all I need for Sharps Practice 2 and other skirmish type wargames. I am working on some Jagars and then I will switch over to some Swedish infantry and then some Swedish Cavalry. Hopefully I will start playing some small skirmish games with Song of Drums and Shakos to get the minis on the table soon. I now have enough 28mm Swedish and Russians to play a few of the in-rule scenarios.

I will be working on painting up a wagon with two horses to be used for a number of different uses. 

I hope you are all doing well and Hopefully I will be able to get back to wargaming at the club in the near future. I will be getting my second Covid vaccine shot on Tuesday. One step closer to getting back to some form of normalcy. 


Keep safe and have a good week.
