General Officer Command Stands for my Swedish Collection for Breitenfeld 1631
I recently had to pull together a gaming force from my growing – nd not nearly finished – collection for Breitenfeld in 28mm. The game was played under the Pike and Shotte rules and I was obliged to create some command stands: one army commander and four battalia commanders. I thought you might like to see what the 1st Corps Swedish commander sets look like, so…

The gaffer. 1st Corps Gustavus Adolphus figure, flanked by a 1st Corps Swedish front rank cavalryman, painted in drabant livery of yellow with black detailing, and a Perry Miniatures trumpeter.

Johan Baner. 1st Corps officer flanked by a Foundry cuirassier.

Erik Soop. Again, 1st Corps officer flanked by Foundry cuirassier.

Horn. Following the theme, 1st Corps officer (on a Front Rank horse) flanked by Foundry cuirassier.

Alexander Leslie. For a change, 1st Corps officer flanked by Foundry cuirassier. Leslie rides a Front Rank horse.

Hope this is of some interest.

Well done very nice! Did you do your own army lists or did you use the one on "Devil's Playground"?

Unfortunately, the figures in the game were standing in for ECW Royalists. Cheriton, I think. Unless I'm playing in a competition I never use army lists. The 'Devil's Playground' list for Gustavus-era Swedes is purest bilge. Maximum two units of commanded shot in an army? I have five for my front-line, right wing cavalry alone.

Yeah, I am also working on a Breitenfeld game and found their army makeup and deployment suspect. However, their book does have much merit and great pics.

Aka see their Saxon deployment?😋
