One bonus of having to work from home three days this week - and the family being out of the house for a few hours - was that I was finally able to get all the Great Northern War Swedes painted in the first half of this year, out of their boxes and let them have a mass parade together for the very first time!

Bonus Post - Swedish GNW Parade
The full collection, arrayed for battle - seven regiments (or fourteen squadrons) of cavalry with twelve regiments of infantry, supported by three guns.
A multitude of shots follow from various angles - its just eye candy really, not a lot to say about them that has not already been said at the time they were painted!
The Senior Leadership Team, figures by Ebor, as are virtually all the others, bar two boxes of Warlord plastic cavalry.
I quite liked the rear aerial shot above
The parade of flags!
The last shot was taken for my mate Nick, to indicate that I really do have room for three more battalions of infantry in this collection.
He has already accused me of being a megalomaniac for suggesting I need more cavalry! As he variously claims the opponents need a 2:1 or 3:1 advantage to have any chance of winning using Barry Hiltons Beneath Lilly Banners rules, he has a LOT of painting to do :)
