Hi,
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for sources on painting for Danish regiments?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have an interest in this as well and haven't been successful in finding anything yet either.

Is there anyone who tried out the Danish skirmish (with proxies)? I am very curious if the snapphaners do something nice and add something to the game. 8-)

I tried The Danes against Swedes as is right and proper.
I even got snapphanar. They did not actually manage to do anything - however their mere presence made Swedish commanders run around in very indignified manner.

Thank you, Julfdi. Seems like the snapphaner are some fun to play with, although expectations shouldn't be too high. 8)

Yup -
You need to have some luck to actually gwet them on the field,
on the long range they need to roll succes twice to hit anything,
so they are not too effective.
On the plus side with two hits the dirty bushwackers can even survive being hit.
And they do create uncertainty.

There are some uniform plates here. Most outside of the timeframe, but a few seem relevant like the infantry, artillery, cuirassiers and Kgl. Livgarde til fods (Royal Foot Life Guard).

(Menige = privates).

IIRC, during the battle after crossing the Great Belt the Danes were hastily mobilized and often did not have proper uniforms. I'm thinking Gdansk militia should be useful here.
