Well my daughter is off to Paris for the weekend, so after doing the honey do list I had some time to build the last of the 300 trees for the 6mm terrain that I need for the 6mm ACW game. Some of us from the club will be running a game using Altar of Freedom in early June.
I also got my order of Perry Miniatures 28mm Danish/Norwegian Infantry and I had some time to paint up the first figure as a prof of concept. I plan to use the miniatures to represent Swedish Infantry that were still using the 1802 Uniform durig the 1808-1809 War against Russia. My reference book has some great information on which units were still wearing the 1802 uniform in 1809.
Based on the great book by W.J. Rawkins and my research at the Army Museum here in Stockholm I painted up my first miniature as an infantryman from the Jonkopings Regiment.

Here is an image of one of the 1802 Uniforms from the Swedish Army Museum here in Stockholm.
Here is the miniature all painted up. What do you think of the figure being used as Swedish Infantry? I think they will work well for the units that were still in the 1802 uniform in 1808-1809. Some units had changed to the new uniform that was released in 1807.
Well I would like to ask for your feedback.
Thanks for checking out my blog and have a great weekend!
