Hello,

on special request here is the other side.

The standard is left plain blue because there are only plain blue and yellow standards in the painting. It is not easy to find information of swedish standards of that period. The swedish changed the design of their standards and colours in the second half of the 17th century but I do not know exactly when. So this was the easiest way.
It is interesting that you even find not many informations of swedish colours of the later thirty years war (after 1635)

Johan Lilliehöök just told me that there will be a second part of this that in the next time.

Really beautifully done figures and interesting back story to this. 


The Swedish armies of Gustavas and Charles X are not terribly well catered in English publications or figures generally so this is exciting - really nice figures as well!

Very nice Christoph, I like them!! :D
May I ask why the standard has no any insignia?
And would it be possible to see the valiants also from the front side, please?
I understand that this layout is according to the painting, but anyhow I would be curious about their faces too!

Hello,
here is a set of flats I finished this week.
It shows the swedish king Charles X. watching his army crossing over the frozen Belts form Jutland to Zealand to defeat the Danish.
For historical details see here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_Across_the_Belts

The set is edited by Johan Lilliehöök from Sweden. It is based on a contemprary painting. The figures aranged here like they were shown in the painting and I try to stay as close as possible it the original colours.
