    Hi Folks,
    Something different and from a new Russian Sculptor to our stable.
    Occasionally something happens and you think, thats cool. We have more sculpted too, and with plans afoot for more.

    T7515 Officer of the Grenadier Company of the Enlisted Regt of the Swedish Guard, Northern War 1700/1721.
    Sculpted by Alexander Kabankov
    Scale 75mm Resin.

    Available from the website [COLOR=var(--blue-link)]https://stormtrooperminiatures.co.uk/shop/...[/COLOR]
    This is one of the finest sculptures I have had the pleasure to mold . The master is sublime !!! The others that are coming have tested me to the limit !!!
    At present I have 1 mold and 20 kits in stock. Due to a general slowdown from covid and changes within the EU this will be a continuing cautious approach.
    Many thanks for looking

    Very nice release that Stu. Good to see you tackling a new (for you) era, and one that's been rather neglected by figure manufacturers in general until very recently.

    Just bought mine, been waiting for this.

    If anyone is interested Helion have a very nice book in "The Century of the Soldier" series number 26. THE SWEDISH ARMY IN THE GREAT NORTHERN WAR 1700-21
    Some very nice colour illustrations included.

    Nice one Stuart (and Alexandr). All that blue will be fun to paint.

    Great figure! And I love the period of course! German was the most common language in the Swedish army among the officers during the GNW. There where plenty of French officers as well. This figure will look quite colorful when painted up. There where really no regulations for the officers, they usually had some liberty in decorating their uniforms. And the moustache adds a typical German feel to figure, as these where more unusual among the Swedish officers and privates.
    Can´t wait to see it painted!(y)
    Well done!

    This is an excellent release Stu, hopefully wife will get this one for me.
  15. Alexandr Kabankov Active Member

    Thank you very much, friends!)))Thank you very much,Michael!It is doubly pleasant to hear the words of approval from the great Master.
  16. Mike the Swede Active Member

    And you are most welcome my friend! :)

    Hi Folks
    A big thank you for all the likes and comments its much appreciated.
    The initial run is now sold out.
    I will be casting some more until the mould dies.
    Make sure you keep an eye on the website for stock.
    If you miss it this time then I will be remoulding it at a later date, but with the way things are at present it maybe a while
    Many thanks again

    Pre Covid, at the changing of the guard at Stockholm's Royal Palace, they wear this uniform. But unfortunately, not at the moment. This figure is very nice.
