Russo-Swedish War 1808-1809

Today I managed to complete the bases on my next couple of Swedish Napoleonic units, painted for me by mate Barry.

Jäger and behind them two battalions of the Helsinge Regiment.

Helsinge Regiment (Eagle Figures)

That’s the Swedish army done apart from some commanders, a couple of limbers and an amusette 1-pdr. Of course I do have a couple more battalions in the smorgesbord box which are unlikely to ever get done. We shall see.


  1. A fascinating period and the figures look great.

  2. Russians? Swedes? Finns? Are there any nationalities you can't conjure up? A super collection by the way!

  3. I too would love to see some commanders for this army Colin...some early Russians to oppose them wouldn't go amiss either.
