After planning my division in mid 2015, buying my first miniatures in july and august 2015, I started painting mid august and finished the following division mid november. It was a kind of a sprint, especially towards the end, as we planned to play our first divisonal level games at a given weekend in november and the first rule was that everything had to be painted. Overall we had a competition in our local gaming group and four players tried to bring as much on the gaming table as possible.

Miniatures are mostly the swedish range and some mixed in imperials. Painting technique is bright colours from Vallejio and Dark Tone Army Painter. I decided to use uniform shemes and the same banners for one regiment, as well as similar banners for regiments of the same colour.

Army List:
General (5 FSP)
National Reiter Regiment (15 FSP)
Mercenary Reiter Regiment (12 FSP)
Dragoon Regiment (10 FSP)
National Infantry Regiment (13 FSP)
National Infantry Regiment (13 FSP)
Artillery Major, 1x additional crew, 4x light gun, 2x medium gun (9 FSP)
Additional Units: 2x Ammunition Wagon, 2x Dragoons, 1x Musketeers (7 FSP)
overall: 84 FSP

Some Numbers: 291 Infantry Men, 272 Riders, 274 Horses and the whole army weights about 7kg.

The blue is way to bright ans the range of colours way to uniform for my tastes. But that's just envy :D Very cool and big army. I'm seriously impressed :D

That is spectacular! One question regarding the Army Painter wash. Did you do anything to brighten it up after? The colours on your figs are really vibrant, but I find that the Dark Tone makes everything look really muted.

It all depends on the colours you use and the miniatures are not drowned in Army Painter. I used a brush to carefully wipe away the excessive Army Painter. Also, I used the Anti Shine Matt Varnish, which, in my opinion, brings some highlight like effect to the models. I can have a look, if I took some WIP pictures as well as write down the main colours I used.

Interesting, that sounds very much like what I do. I think my base colours are a bit darker. To get that extra pop, I usually touch up white (collars, cuffs, socks), metal (to bring back metallic shine after the Matt Varnish) and faces (nose, cheeks).

Your division does look great and I'd love to see it in some battle reports!

This is probably due to camera flash. My Swedes look bright in this pic too, but are in reality painted with Vallejo 965 Prussian Blue, which is a fairly dark color.
