|Raw GNW Swedes|
Anyway here is the sixth infantry battalion, painted to represent the first battalion of Södermanland Regiment. I am basing the units to use with the popular 'Under the Lilly Banner' rules by Barry Hilton, so they are on three 4 x 3 cm bases, with 8 figures per base.
The First Battalion of each regiment is where the Grenadiers were deployed, so each wing of the unit has a couple of grenadier models to represent this, and for no real good reason I have chosen to depict the bases with patches of snow on them to give a hint of Scandinavian winter conditions.
Two musketeer wings and a central command base with pikemen attached - the Swedes kept their pike men well after many other nations dropped them. Again this was a compromise as I believe the pikemen were distributed through out the line in Swedish units but I wanted to give the overall impression of a musketeer unit with integral pike and this seemed a logical compromise.
It has been rightly pointed out that most campaigning happened in the spring and summer months and thus no snow. However, I have never done an army with snow on the bases before and I wanted to experiment!

Calculations: 24 x 15mm Infantry Figures @ 2 Points ea. = 48 Points
We're looking for a source for relatively cheap Daleks, to use with 28mm UNIT forces, for skirmish games. This plastic Dalek is free from a magazine cover, easily obtainable on eBay and is apparently from about 2010, representing 'New Paradigm' era Daleks.
|And the painted version|
Anyway this red Dalek was glued to a UK 2p coin, painted red and then detail added, black and silver, I gave it a sepia wash and then later gave it a coat of Army Painter Dark Dip.
Base - what can be seen, is meant to represent concrete flooring.
Calculations: 1 x 28mm Figure @ 5 Points ea. = 5 Points
|Raw Bretons, ready to undercoat.|
I had to stop on the last batch due to running out of shields and heads, I've been able to find extra of each to do this last batch or this particular plastic pile!
|Casualty Marker and four Bretons|
|Another Five Bretons|
Figures painted as per previous post, white undercoat, muted colours etc and using paper shield designs.
Calculations: 9 x 28mm Figure @ 5 Points ea. = 45 Points
1 x prone 28mm figure @ 3 Points ea = 3 Points
Total = 48 Points

Thee are to go with a unit I already have painted, painted in the usual manner with the figures based upon UK 2p pieces.
Calculations: 2 x 28mm Figure @ 5 Points ea. = 10 Points
It's Monday Mike with his weekly variety entry! These are always ready well in advance. Nice work on the snow basing- It is a slippery slope since soon you need snowy scenery and figures for winter and summer campaigning... I do like your Dalek, they're wonderful baddies. I've counted the prone figure as the full 5 points, and thrown in some bonuses for the snow basing to make it a Tamsin-acceptable divisible by 5.
