The Swedish Army of the Great Northern War

Our goal is to produce a range of 28mm miniatures to cover the Swedish army of Charles XII which fought the Great Northern War 1700-1721 against the Russia of Peter the Great and his allies of Denmark, Saxony, Britian and Prussia.

The Great Northern War

Started by an attack on the Swedish protectorate of Holstein-Gottorp by the forces of Denmark-Norway, Saxony-Poland and Russia the Swedish army of Provincial Regiments raised by the system of allotment initially proved too good for their enemies and forced the allied nations into submission by 1706.

Swedish victory at Narva 1700

In January 1708 the Swedish Army led by King Charles XII crossed the Vistula river with the intention of marching on Moscow but in 1709 a resurgent Russian army inflicted a crushing defeat on the Swedes at the battle of Poltova .

Charles XII was forced into exile in the Ottoman empire but returned to Sweden in 1714 and found Sweden at war with Russia, Saxony, Hanover, England and Denmark.

In 1716 the Swedish army led by Charles invaded Norway to try and Force Denmark-Norway out of the war but was forced to retreat into Sweden.

Once more in 1718 Charles invaded Norway to try and force Denmark-Norway out of the War but on December 11th at the siege of Fredriksten King Charles XII was Killed while inspecting his armies trenches, a second force under Gustaf Armfeldt marched on Trondheim but were forced to retreat on a winter march which claimed the lives of almost six thousand of his men's lives, this effectively was the end of the war and the Swedish Empire.

Our initial funding target is to produce a set of figures to build a 24 figure regiment of Infantry advancing to the attack, this will include a command blister of two officers, two officer/ensigns an NCO and drummer, also six figure blister packs of musketeers in Tricorn, musketeers in Karpus, pikemen in Tricorn, pikemen in Karpus and grenadiers in Tricorn and mitre.

If we reach our funding target we will add stretch goals to include an infantry storming party with loose heads and arms carrying ladders, grenades, swords and muskets for more variety, casualties, cavalry and artillery. We will also be releasing figures for the Russian, Danish and Saxon armies with free figures of Charles XII for backers who pledge £48 and Peter the Great if the stretch goal to release the cavalry is reached.

We are extremely pleased to have one of the worlds best miniature sculptors in Paul Hicks on board for this project, Paul has produced two stunning sample figures to show our backers the outstanding quality of the figures they will receive, any body who has seen our range of WSS figures at eborminiatures.com sculpted by Paul will know the quality of his work, this truly will be the range of figures all lovers of this period have been waiting for.

We will also be releasing an outstanding range of fabric flags to accompany the range of figures.

Who are we

Ebor miniatures is as small independent business based in the historic city of York run by me Nick Wragg,

I do all my own casting and dispatch of orders but have a great team of professionals who make the moulds for me.

Why Kickstarter

As a small one man business the investment needed to create a range of figures in one go is beyond my resources but with the help of Kickstarter and the backing of the gaming public I can produce a range of figures of the highest quality in one go and a fraction of the time it would take normally.

Free Miniature

A free mounted miniature of King Charles XII of Sweden will be dispatched to all our backers who pledged £48 or more.

Also if we are lucky enough to reach our stretch goal to release the Swedish horse all our backers who pledged £48 will receive a free mounted figure of Tsar Peter the Great as well.

Risks and challenges

Baring a freak accident to Paul there is no risk that the products in this project will not be supplied as promised,.
I have taken great care to ensure that I have numerous great professionals to step in and mould and cast my figures if for some reason I was unable to do so myself, Paul is totally on board to work his magic and produce figures of the Highest quality.
