I know this is always a danger to a gamer, especially when you've spent the last two months acquiring EVERY out-of-production Revell SYW set that you can find (and I did acquire several!). However, I have just purchased a new set that I have absolutely fallen in love with. These would be the new set from Russia's Zvezda of Swedish Infantry of Charles the Great for the Great Northern War. They also do some excellent Russians that can be seen on Will McNally's Blog-site. These "Swedes" did not get a favorable review on PSR's site, not because of their quality or style, but because they are not correctly modelled to depict what they are supposed to be - Swedes of the 1709 to 1720 period. (The PSR reviewer also didn't care for the more "static" poses of these or the Russians, however, I find them perfect for the OSW style of gaming.) I have to agree with PSR about the accuracy, but that's exactly why I fell in love with them.
I have now decided to use these figures to depict my Irish and Scots Brigades in the Army of M'Uedail. My Italians and Germans will still be Revell Austrians and Prussians. Unfortunately, Zvezda hasn't made the Cavalry to accompany these excellent figures yet, but have indicated that they "plan to", whatever that means in the world of plastic production. However, Strelets does produce GNW Swedish Cavalry that Will McNally has painted to great effect. Its a little too "animated" for my personal tastes, but does look very good "en masse" when painted. Strelets also do appropriate Artillery and Infantry of their own. I don't care for the Infantry, but the Artillery sets are nice, incorporating many individual poses that will make up into very nice looking gun crews.
