Danish Army Uniforms

Had a quick look to see what information was available on the Danish army of the early 1700s and found some great stuff on Dan Schorr's site including this (b/w pic) - the figures of which are 2 meters in height and look invaluable - someone should go to Rosenberg castle and photograph them - sadly I'm going to the wrong bit of Denmark. Anyway if you have an interest in this period check out the Danish army sections - they're very good. Also up on the site and very interesting are some early tapestries from the 1670s and the Möinichen Paintings - recommended. Seems like Claus Moinichen did quite a few battle paintings of the Scanian War. Lovely period. Media in category "Scanian War"
