|The Nyland Cavalry Regiment|
|The Östgöta Cavalry Regiment|
The comming year one of the main priorities will be the Great Nothern War Project. The basic idea is to set up the battle of Hollowczyn 1708. This was a battle between Swedes and Russians. The Swedish monarch at the time Charles XII had invaded Russia in order to set things straight with Russians(who had teamet up with the Danes and the Saxons).
The battle of Holowczyn was a Swedish victory, but the war was in essence a great disaster.
This is a club project so ther will be a number of participants. Sören and Micke(Dalauppror) will their part as well. Thus great things are to be expected.
I have now completed two units of cavalry. The first is Nyland's Cavalry regiment, a Fenno-Swedish unit recruited in the region surrounding present day Helsinki. The other regiment is Östgöta cavalry regiment, a unit drawing from south- central Sweden. Both unit participets in fight at Hollowczyn. The Nyland regiment also took part in the disaster at Poltava. I am not sure about the whereabouts of the Östgöta cavalry regiment after Hollowczyn. The mintures used in these two units comes from two different manufacturers. The ones in the Nyland units are produced by Warfare minatures. The Östgöta are made up by mintures from Reiver castings.
