I've painted up my first 6 now, as Livgarden til hest.
Tomorrow I'll start on 6 more as Gyllenstjerna dragoons.

What are the differences between these new figures and the ones that were supplied with the SCR2 GNW Swedish Horse Regiment Charging from before. Beautiful figures by the way.

Thanks

Generally better sculpts, broader swords and scabbards.
different arms(to go with the swords)
And new horses of courses.

First squdron done.

The figures in SC2 were preliminary sculpts for the GNW range done about 3-4 years ago which, because of demand we released as an interim product. It proved to be very popular and became a bestseller for us whilst the range worked its way through to the full selection of Swedish cavalry which should have been released in February 2017.

We had some production challenges with these meaning the release was severely delayed till now effectively.

The Swedes just released are 20 individual sculpts with 6 arm variants producing a very wide selection of options for both Cavalry and Dragoon regiments. The original SC2 sculpt Remains available for anyone wishing to continue to bulk up collections using it.

By the way Truls – your Livgard look fantastic!

Truls, did you get any details for the dragoon flag? How you going to approach it?

FusilierDan Supporting Member of TMP07 Jul 2018 3:00 a.m. PST

Thanks.Working on an order now.

I think I'll go with plane light blue

Cheers Truls, Currently I am deciding on my last unit of Dragoons. I have all three from the Warfare flag sheet which as it happened were the three I wannted (doing Lifegaurd twice) but will then need a 5th unit. ideally one formed in the earlier part of the war so it can fight in Poland and the Baltic. Got plenty of time to decide. I could always just do a second unit of Bremen if I run out of ideas.

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP08 Jul 2018 5:30 a.m. PST

After painting these 36. I still need 12 more(6 each of livgarden and gyllenstierna).
By. Then I'll actually be done with my first goal of Swedish cavalry.
But I want to add Liv dragoons too. And one of the Baltic dragoons (can't remember which one but one of them had a moorish drummer in turban ect. And I'd want to do that reigment just to the drummer.

If there are certain units which flags would be useful for we always consider requests. The Saxon, Prussian and WSS Danish flags were all commissions.

RogerC11 Jul 2018 2:57 a.m. PST

Thanks Barry, couple of options for me to consider first. I have 2 units of Dragoons and one of Horse still to decide on, one of the Dragoons will be Schlippenbach, I already have the Bremen and 2 of the Lifeguard. I cna either use the second flag and do an extra unit of Schlippenbach, change the drummer for a bugler and do another unit of Horse, or cosnider a unit of Dragoons you dont yet have a guidon for. I am tempted to do a second Schlippenbach unit using the colonels colour. Lets see.
