This artillery piece is manned by a crew from the National Norweigan artillery. In 1718 the Norweigan artillery had red coats and purple cuffs(at least according to my main source: "Notes about the Norweigan army 1700-1720" by Daniel A Schorr). The miniatures are from Ebor miniatures and their 28mm WSS range.
The unit above is an artillery crew from the Trondheim artillery company. Most probably this was a unit that manned the fortifications around city of Trondheim itself. The uniform has almost reversed colours compared with the National artillery units. The uniform also comes awfully close to some worn by Swedish units in the same theatre of operations. The miniatures are from Reiver Castings.
A "Hebre" - Scandinavian storage barn. The idea behind placing a barn on stilts is to keep roaming wildlife away from whatever is stored inside. The model is originally a souvenir piece that I repainted and added some minor details to it. The moose head was made from small pice of balsa wood. The platform in front of the door was reworked as well as the door. Finally I mounted the model on a piece of foam core, repainted it and added some snow flock from Game Workshop.
This cottage is scratch built. The design is a bit different than the last cottage I built. This one is not timbered. It is still typical for region and the period. There are still such cottages standing in parts of Scandinavia, although nowadays often painted red with white frames. The red painted cottages are typical for Scandinavia, but not very common until the mid 18th century, thus the grey colour scheme.
