Above, the Swedes and Saxons, below the Imperial forces.
Above, Imperial grand battery. Below Imperial Cuirassiers and Harquesbusiers.
Above Saxon and Swedish Foot. Below Swedish Yellow and Blue brigades.
Well, as the title suggests, I've just about (95%) completed my Swedish and Imperial forces for my TYW project, so here are some photos of both armies arrayed for battle. Not that they will be able to get at each other over my new scratch-built river. I pinched the idea off another blog and am very pleased with the end result. Clearly I've gone OTT again but not a bad result for the last 9-10 months. I have promised myself I won't start anything new until the summer, but that won't stop me from adding to existing projects and getting stuff finished.......

After quite a spell of not being very productive I have suddenly finished several more Swedish units. Pictured above a four bases of commanded shot (mainly TAG with a few 1st Corps and Empress thrown in) and a full brigade/regiment/whatever of Swedish foot TAG and 1st Corps). The flags are on their way stuck in the post somewhere but I plan to do this unit as a native Swedish regiment rather than a German one. I really do need to stop and take stock of exactly what I have produced over the last nine months, for example I now have six 'Swedish' brigades and two of Saxons, 5 squadrons of Saxon/Hessian horse, 9 squadrons of Swedish/Finnish horse, plus commanded shot and about eight light guns. Enough for anyone I am sure..........?
