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.



  1. Great looking Napoleonic troops.

  2. Very, very nice Russian infantry - love the imagery of the opening photo.

    1. Thank you Dean, the building in the picture is a local Swedish palace, they are very different then other parts of Europe.
