Lately I haven't been able to paint anything more within this project, exception for the two Danish regimens that have shown thus far. New minis have been bought and I eagerly await delivery. In the meantime I can you what was completed last year.
The Småland cavalry regiment existed between 1543 and 1927. It had many different names and the organisation shifted quite a bit during it's existance. It made itself first known on the battlefields of Europe during the Thirty Years war. It was then known as"Smålands ryttare"( The Riders of Småland). It took of course part in the Battle of Lund in 1676. It became The Småland Cavalry Regiment in 1684. It also took part i the battle of Hollowczyn 1708, therefor it will also be part of our Great Nothern War project. However this menas that we must paint in it's 1708 appearance as well. At the moment I am not sure if I will do the honour or if this will be something Done by one of my club mates.
