Todays Ådalen blog up is about the Ålands crisis 1918. In the end of world war one Swedes, Finns, Russians and Germans meet on an island in the middle of the Baltic Sea.
What happened? What could have happened?

World War 1 Swedes? Why not? Only issue is shipping from US. Would they be available from a retailer in the EU?

MotttheHoople: This is just a small private commisioned range. I can't afford a retailer. But send me an email and we can maybe solve the problem:

Me too! :-)

Interesting subject. I have no use for Swede soldiers now, but I never know which wargaming ideas could come to me. It looks a so peaceful country that you could imagine horrible Pulp adventures somewhere in these deep forests :-)

When I attended Reserve officer course in the French artillery (quite a long time ago) we had a simulator to train with. There were pictures of landscapes on a screen and we had to calculate targets. I don't remember if the simulator was Swedish-made or why, but I remember well that some of the pictures were Swedish landscapes.

Pine-trees everywhere on the picture and NOTHING ELSE! an artillery observer's nightmare.
