Want to game this period. What figures would you recommend for each scale and which scale do you prefer. Comments or pictures of you figs if possible.
Thanks J.
PS Rules recommendations if possible as well.

I have Baccus 6mm and others in 10 and 15mm for GNW. With Baccus, they package their units to match their Polmos rules series, so when used together, you are well catered for, IMHO.

Best is to have someone that lives close, can game together and is willing to follow your lead as to scale, rules and figures to use. There may be some locals that already have taken the plunge so figure size and rules choices have already been made and increased chances of finding opponents, locally.

Good luck on your project. I really don't feel there are many "bad" choices since all choices are highly personal- do whatever you find the best for youJ.

I have no experience with GNW in any scale except 28mm.

Put Pendraken generally does great 10mm. Baccus does good 6mm. With great value. Baccus does, swedes, russians, danes and saxons.

My main complaint with baccus is all infantry are matching/standing.

Bluemoon are popular 15mm.

When it comes to rules I can holeheartedly recommend Beneath the lilly banners. Soon there will be a 3rd edition.

I use Baccus 6mm and there are pictures on my blog of some current and past things I am working on. The follow posting is a good start from a Great Northern War (GNW) perspective.

A little bit on the period and different rules I have been using and some considerations with regards to rules that are important for the period and this particular theatre. I hope it is of some use in your search for the right thing for you. All the very best. It is a fantastic period to wargame. / Per

Ftiend in our club uses the Pendraken ranges for GNW- they look good and, IMHO, are the ideal compromise between adequately detailed figures and a figure size small enough to refight the " big battles" . We use the Twilight of the Sunking rules, recently revised and published by Pike and Shotte Society.
