Håtunaleken - Duke Valdemar troops

More Lion Rampant...

This time I am painting a group of Swedish foot soldiers from the early 14th century. Our club is running a project called "Håtunaleken". The aim is to recrate the Swedish civil war  that took place between 1306 and 1317. These gentlemen are the armed hoast of Duke Valdemar of the house Bjälbo.  Duke Valdermar and his brother Erik staged a rebellion against  their brother the King(Birger).
