I now have all the miniatures i need for standard smallish game of Beneath the lilly banners.
I've got some generals, a cannon with crew and 3.5 russian battalions, 1 Danish battalion and 3 Danish squadrons to paint.
On the swedish side I've only got half a battalion and 6 squadrons to paint and a couple of generals.
I have all the miniatures only need to paint them.

This would be 14 battalions and 34 squadrons (17 BLB squadrons) on the anti-swedish side or about 11 250 men(not counting artillery. )

While the swedish would have 5 battalions and 30 squadrons (15 BLB squadrons)
Or about 6250 men.

Last time i had a ganeable force was when I had a British and French Napoleonic 15mm division each.

It is always very nice to have a complete set, to game both sides of a conflict.

Congrats! I always have to paint both sides when I do a new period too.

I don't have to but I always paint matched armies

Great! I agree that matching armies are very useful – that is the only way I can game SYW and ACW since I am the only one in the local club with those armies
