Thought I would dig this up from the SVK forums.  I really like the sketches.  Good stuff.



Finnish Troops on the march




Von Döbeln at the battle of Juthas




Von Sandels in his horse before battle




Finnish Infantry Attack




After the Battle

General Aldercruetz before the battle

Swedes charge and ambush Russians




"Can I kill some Ruskies too?"




Cossacks attack Swedish Indelta Dragoons




Night Fighting (Probably the most brutal types of figthing there is)




Sven Dufva at the battle of Virtabro (He defended the bridge long enough for the Swedes to draw up their reserves and beat the Ruskies)




Von Sandles after the battle of Virtabro




General Von Döbeln

This is my all time favorite picture.




Hard Fighting (Swedish Infantry)




Victory




Fallen Swedish Soldier




After the battle




Tending to the Wounded




Von Döbeln's men cheer him. (Does this look firmiliar? lol)
