Sins last time have I painte some more Swedish allmoge soldiers
This unit are under command of Birger Birgersson from the house of Trolle, father to Arvid Birgersson (Trolle)
The family name comes from the family coat of arms that depicts a headless troll. According to tradition, the family had taken these arms on the basis of a legend that a common ancestor must have killed a troll and robbed a drinking horn, which was called Våxtorpshornet.
I just had to paint some of the lovely Claymore Casting minis,as I needed 2 more command stands to some Allmoge units I took the opportunety to mix in 2 Claymore Casting minis on each base... Here are some pictures of the first one...
This represent Bengt Gunnarsson of the House of Gylta.
He was never dubbed to a Knight and remained a Squire all he´s life. Bengt are listed among the Swedish Privy Council in 1446 and was married with Martha Andersdotter of the House of Öra. With whom he had the son Peder Bengtsson.
Bengt turned allegiance in 1452 and got in Danish service. He was sentenced in contumaciam to death for treason by the Swedish King Karl Knutsson of House of Bonde in 1453, but Bengt was then in Denmark. He returned in 1458 after King Christian I's accession to the throne, but regained not his office.
As Bengt Gunnarsson of the House of Gylta was a traitor he will most often be seen in command of a Allmoge unit in Danish service...
