The Great Northern War

Its a while since these figures have been out of their boxes.  Swedish Infantry charging, as per usual, in a recent game we played using Beneath The Lily Banners
The first unit of Russians I painted, some 12 years ago, including hand painted standards. The units are based on 50 by 50mm bases with 3 bases per unit. Each base typically has 6 figures- although some do have more.
Cavalry units are 3 bases with 2 figures per base.

The Russian Battle line looks imposing but normally comes a cropper when faced by the fiesty Swedes.

Which goes in pike first, clearing the bridge, and leading the Swedes to victory.
