Ready to defend the salmon of Lake Savo!

(Lax is the Swedish word for salmon, and there is a big lake in Finland called Savo, which has a castle called Olavinlinna, which has been held by the Swedes and Russians at different times in history.) (Savonlinna is the city on Lake Savo closest to Olavinlinna, which is on an island.)

Teasing aside, they look great!

You keep trucking on.
I haven't done anything with my GNW at all this year.

Truls the Swedes are close to completion now just one battalion of foot and one regiment of horse. The Poles need two regiments of horse, the Russians one battalion of foot then its just the Saxons!
