I finished two pikemen, a musketman and another grenadier for the Bjorneborgs Regiment today. I had painted the first four figures in a generic way, with yellow flaps on their karpus', as I never actually intended to build a unit, but Bjorneborgs had blue hats so I repainted the first four I did. I have nine out of 36 figures done. I have just based another five figures; three for Bjorneborgs and two for Kalmar so will try and get them done in the next few weeks.

The 1644 rules call for one musician per regiment so here is my first drummer. I based the drum on one I photographed in the Army Museum in Stockholm last Autumn.
I have now painted nine out of the 36 figures I will need for this regiment. I still need to buy a few more for it but I am starting to get there, I think. Should finish off a few for the other regiment I'm working on tomorrow, before I go and see my sister's new house (which is five minutes walk from a Games Workshop, worryingly).
