Here are one of my soldiers of Charles XII. The uniform is painted in Jönköpings regiments uniform around 1700-1709.
The mini is from Zvezdas Great northern war range which also covers Russian soldiers under Tsar Peter. THe scale is 1/72. I have around 10 marching poses and 10 advancing poses of musketeers. To the regiment I will also add 8 grenadiers, 10 pikemen, 2 Standards, 2 drummers and a couple of officers.
That's really lovely work, especially given the scale. My top tip for protecting the paint on thin bendy parts like pikes and muskets, is to brush a couple of coats of PVA or woodglue over the fragile bits before varnishing. It gives a flexible shield that wears well and hopefully means you aren't repainting every couple of weeks!
