North Tradgardland ski troops
Based these North Tradgardland ski troops this afternoon. North Tradgardland has Norwegian vibes about it. These ski troops are light infantry and some will pull a light gun on a sledge as artillery support.
Very nice indeed, very unusual unit, should be fun to use them on the table.ReplyDelete
Thanks, they are something a tad different and great fun too. Must set up a game soon…Delete
Interesting figures, were they ski conversions or did you buy them as is?ReplyDelete
Bought as they are -Delete
Lovely models with charm about them. Looking forward to seeing them in a bigger game…
They look very cool - I had thought they might be MLS but see above that they are not!ReplyDelete
Cool seems an appropriate word indeed!Delete
Excellent! These are the things that add character to an army.ReplyDelete
I do like characterful units I have to say. In later periods I am very partial to bicycle troops in both 54mm and smaller scales.Delete
Great stuff! Certainly a different twist on Napoleonics. They look very versatile figures. They look like you could get away with using them throughout the 19th C and maybe early 20th.ReplyDelete
Or maybe even Swedish troops for the Russo-Swedish War of 1808-09 if they used any ski troops?
The Norwegians certainly did in 1809 against the Swedes but don’t know if they were used by the Russians or Finns.Delete
I have used some 1808 Swedish artillery figures with this project and they blend in pretty well with the 1790 stuff.
Very cool! I love the fellow steadying his shot with a pole.ReplyDelete
Yes, l am very partial to that pose also.Delete
