Perry Miniatures: Napoleonische Schweden und Dänen
Die Perrys haben eine neue Reihe ihrer napoleonischen Miniaturen gestartet: die Schweden. Außerdem gibt es Nachschub für die Dänen.
A small smorgasbord of Scandinavians!
The first in the new range of Swedish Napoleonics is now available.
The first period covered will be 1808-1809 but earlier and later armies will be covered in the future.
The Line Infantry here can be painted as regimental Jägers with just the colour of the plume changed from yellow to green and the belts painted black instead of white. All the different regiments wore different colours on their collars, cuffs, turn-backs and lining, but the color of the uniform was blue for all Swedish regiments (there are exceptions) and all the Finish regiments wore grey (again some exceptions). However in 1807 a new uniform was introduced which had exactly the same cut and details as the uniform of 1806 (that these figures are wearing). The color of that uniform was grey instead of blue for the entire army. The color of collar, cuffs, turn-backs and lining was dark blue and at the same time a regimental badge was introduced on the front of the hat. However this uniform was only worn by 3-4 infantry regiments, since most of the regiments had not worn out their older uniforms by the year 1807 and in 1809 the blue color for the uniforms was reintroduced.
Many thanks to Martin Markelius of the Swedish Army Museum, Stockholm for his ongoing help on this range and Michael Leck for his encouragement and help.

These can be used for either regimental Jaegers (in red) or Light Infantry in green. The regimental officer in red is distinguished by his long tailed coat.
The Danish artillery are on their way, Norman Swales has made a lovely 6 pdr so far with a 3 pdr on his workbench. Alan is working on the crews.
Many thanks too to Jørgen Larsen for his ongoing help with the Danish range.
